– Beach
– Private Bathroom
– Free Toiletries

When it comes to being close to the beach, Hotel Costa is pretty much ON the beach: it’s a 1 min walk away. The rooms are pretty basic but decent enough, and there are nice lil’ extras like free toiletries, hairdryers and private bathrooms – just like a REAL hotel, wow.

It’s in the town of Ipsos, which was known a few years ago as THE party place but that’s pretty much changed now and it’s a more chill kinda place to stay. There is still nightlife here though, making this budget hotel in Corfu a good balanced option.

Featuring very nice studios and apartments – some of ’em even have decent sea views from their balconies – this budget hotel is set in Benitses. If a fishing village vibe is your thing, then you’ll love this town. The owners match the town since they’re really friendly, too.

The rooms themselves are pretty much boutique style, though a lil’ bit standard, but feature great facilities like air-con, kitchenettes, TVs, plus more. It keeps you comfy and lets you keep the costs down, which sounds alright to us!

It’s great for a budget hotel in Corfu since opportunities to save money are everywhere, or mainly in the kitchenette which is great for rustling up a hangover breakfast – or a drunken snack at 3 AM. There’s a pool here too, great for a lazy day chill.

Pieros Studios Lisipios

Pieros Studios Lisipios

– $$
– Looks More Expensive Than It Is
– Sun Terrace
– Air Conditioning

A little bit more upmarket than a few other budget hotels in Corfu, these apartments are really nice inside (and out). Timber ceilings, tiled floors, tasteful wooden furniture, a general cutesy/traditional decor means it feels pretty high-end.

But it’s only a teensy more pricey than most hotels on this list. We’d say it’s the best budget hotel for couples in Corfu – the sense of luxury and seclusion is strong here, we gotta say. The beach is a 5 min walk away at Palaiokastritsa, a pretty dang beautiful place.

Another budget hotel in Corfu that’s set in bustling Kavos, Hebes Studios is super cheap but also super good. All rooms have little terraces, they’re self-catering, and whoever does the cleaning is doing an amazing job, seriously.

Being in Kavos, well, you might get a few people staying in the same place who are there to go WILD – maybe you are too! But just bear that in mind. Anyway, lively stuff is just a few mins walk away. Most of all it’s very cheap.
