The English city of Liverpool may be historically most famous as the birthplace of The Beatles, and that’s still certainly one of the city’s biggest tourist draws. Liverpool’s music scene is also still alive and well, and a popular spot for those who just like local music. But the good news for those of you planning trips to Liverpool is that there are plenty of other things to do and see in this city, and plenty of cheap hotels in Liverpool to choose from.

This is not a city well-known for its luxury hotels – in fact, thare are currently no five-star hotels in Liverpool. So the choices for cheap hotels in Liverpool are perhaps even more plentiful than you might otherwise expect them to be. Another perk for visitors to this city is that the downtown area is easy to get around in just by walking, so if you are lucky enough to get a room in a hotel that is right in the city center you can put your walking shoes to good use and see the city on foot.

Liverpool’s city center is notable for the juxtaposition of architectural styles and eras – the old and the new live happily right next to one another. There are several churches and cathedrals downtown which are definitely worth visiting, along with a few nice museums and art galleries. Sports fans will want to find out whether the Liverpool Football Club is playing a home game. Of course there is the great Beatles museum – and to honor their legacy, go out and catch some of today’s local artists in the city’s many bars and music halls.

Some of the cheap hotels in Liverpool worth looking into are Dolby Hotel (64 rooms, next to Albert Dock, on-site restaurant, internet access available), St. Thomas Hotel (boutique hotel in central Liverpool, on-site restaurant & bar, 39 rooms, B&B packages available), Lord Nelson Hotel (in city center, on-site restaurant & bar, package deals available), Premier Inn Liverpool City Centre (in city center, WiFi available for a fee, on-site restaurant), and Aachen Hotel (in the city center, family-run hotel, 17 rooms, breakfast buffet included, family rooms available).
