V&A Dundee visitor guide: Where to stay
The opening of the V&A Dundee will bring thousands of tourists to our fab city and we have lots of great places for you all to stay.
If you’re looking for hotels close to the museum then you’ve come to the right place.
Here’s a run-down of the nearest and best accommodation, picked out just for you.
All of these are less than 15 minutes walk from the V&A.
The Dundee branch of the Sleeperz chain is perfect for so many reasons.
Firstly, if you’re coming to us by train then it is tacked on right next to the station.
Sleeperz is cool, stylish and has great views of the V&A museum from its rooms, which is right across the road – so you’ll literally be neighbours!

If the V&A and Discovery Point have you fascinated by Dundee’s rich history then Hotel Indigo is perfect for you.
In a past life this hotel was a jute mill, but now it has been brought into the 21st Century.
But it still wears the city’s heritage on its sleeves with the mini-museum in the lobby, the locally crafted decor and original features of the mill.
