Accommodation in Edinburgh
Edinburgh's festivals are famous for filling up every nook and cranny with diverse venues, making the most out of any and all space, and accommodation in the festival city follows a similar rule of thumb. Whether it's a luxury apartment on the Royal Mile or a couch in a student's living room, a family friendly hotel or a bed for one in a hostel dormitory, or a luxury hotel with a view to dream of, whatever you need is sure to be on offer.
The trick for not being disappointed - particularly during the summer festival season and Hogmanay, when Edinburgh can feel as if it's full to bursting - is doing your research. Planning ahead helps, though if you do make a last minute decision there will always be somewhere to stay, you'll just need to seek it out.
