Don't fancy forking out for a hotel? Here are the best Airbnbs in Leeds.

Leeds Skyline

Whether you’re heading to Leeds for the weekend or looking for somewhere for your mates to stay, these are the classiest Airbnb apartments in Leeds right now…

It’s the latest craze to sweep the nation, a homely alternative to your usual hotel stays – but what does Airbnb have to offer in Leeds? We’ve scoured the pads up for grabs to round up 5 of the best, with everything from luxury waterfront apartments to cottages nestled right on the edge of Roundhay Park.

A city centre flat with a view

You’re onto a winner here. This city centre apartment starts at just £69 a night, which makes it cheaper than your average hotel room, and it comes with some serious perks. The views for example – they look out over the rooftops to Leeds Town Hall, and you can enjoy them in style from the astroturfed terrace, which has a real garden feel to it. Inside, the one-bed apartment is decked out in modern, minimalist style – and if you’re not going out on the town, you can always watch Netflix on the 40 inch TV.

A modern apartment filled with character

Vassalli House is one of the most coveted apartment buildings in Leeds, and this one bed duplex will show you why. It’s filled with character, from the statement windows to the exposed brickwork, and it will be the perfect home from home. Upstairs, the bright, airy bedroom is ideal for couples, but there’s also a sofa bed downstairs if you’re travelling as a group. The kitchen has all the mod-cons if you fancy cooking, and Kirkgate Market is just across the road with all the fresh ingredients you could want – but with so many quality restaurants on your doorstep, why not go out? All this from just £65 a night.

A cottage on the edge of the park

If you’re going to stay outside the city centre, there’s no better place to go than Roundhay – and this cottage sits right on the edge of the park. Not only does it have two double bedrooms, but you’ll also find a secret garden tucked away out back, where you can barbecue in the summer. In terms of location, you can be in the city centre in 15 minutes, in the Yorkshire countryside within an hour or in the park within a matter of minutes – and that alone is reason enough to stay here. Prices start at just £120 a night.

A luxurious apartment 10 minutes from the station

If you don’t like the idea of navigating the streets with your case, the quick walk to this apartment at City Island will certainly appeal. When you get there, you’ll be treated to a luxurious abode, with two double bedrooms and views that look out over the city. The modern kitchen is perfect for eating in, with tea, coffee and milk to help ease you into the day – and if you’re you staying in on an evening, it has wifi, Netflix and a flat screen TV for you to make the most of.

A cool as heck place to rest your head

This has to be the coolest Airbnb in Leeds. Nestled on Dock Street, it absolutely oozes character, with industrial fittings alongside exposed brickwork, wooden beams and neon signs. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, which you can make the most of from £155 a night – and it’s perfectly placed for exploring. You can be at the waterfront in seconds, with the shops, bars and restaurants of the city centre just minutes away.
