Edinburgh Festival Apartments

It’s only 100 days to the Edinburgh Festival 2013 and Apartments in Edinburgh are really starting to fill up. We are getting lots of enquiries for Edinburgh Group Accommodation as well as Festival Apartments in Edinburgh. We have lots of groups returning who stayed with us during the Edinburgh Festival last year who are looking for Festival Apartments in Edinburgh again this year.


Coming to the Edinburgh Festival this year but don’t know where to start? We have out together a great top tips sheet below to make sure you make the most of the Edinburgh Festival 2013! First thing is first – Edinburgh Festival Accommodation!


This can be the hardest (and most expensive) part of coming to the Edinburgh International Festival so you want to get this sorted as early as possible. Thankfully part one of our Edinburgh Festival 2013 guide is Accommodation!


The Edinburgh Fringe 2013 runs from 2nd to the 26 August 2013 with the peak time being the weekend periods.


The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is very popular with the locals as well as people around the UK so the first tip is come Monday to Friday if you can and avoid the weekend periods. During the Edinburgh festival accommodation can have a longer minimum stay so always try and come for 4-5 days at a time.


Here are some VieAmhor Edinburgh Apartment recommendations….


Our Victoria Terrace Edinburgh Festival apartment is the perfect Edinburgh Festival Accommodation especially if you are visiting the Edinburgh Military Tattoo 2013. Located on Johnstone Terrace this Edinburgh Festival Apartment is right the foot of Edinburgh Castle Esplanade which make picking up tickets, queuing for the event and getting home (when taxi’s are impossible) easy peasy!


Or why not check out our St Giles Edinburgh Apartment is one of the best for Edinburgh Festival Accommodation, it’s the only Edinburgh Apartment that has full height floor to ceiling windows on the first floor on the entire Royal Mile Edinburgh! Edinburgh Festival Street Acts perform right outside the window so avoid the crowds and watch from the living room window!


If you fancy luxury Festival Accommodation then head straight to our Royal Mile Mansions Edinburgh Apartment. Overlooking Edinburgh’s Royal Mile this amazing 2 bedroom flat sleeping 5 is perfect for your Festival Accommodation needs and has the added bonus of being right across from the Edinburgh Festival Ticket office.


The Grassmarket is also a great Edinburgh Festival location and you will always find lots of street performers and buskers displaying the best of the new talent! We still have availability in our Grassmarket 2 bedroom Edinburgh Festival Apartment and the Lothian Road Edinburgh Group Apartment sleeping 10, both perfect Edinburgh Festival Apartments to watch the Edinburgh Tattoo fireworks. Did you know out Grassmarket 2 bedroom Edinburgh Apartment has a roof top terrace looking onto the East side of Edinburgh Castle and gives a prime viewing of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo fireworks display which happen every evening around 10pm. 



If you need to be even closer to the action our Bristo Square Edinburgh Festival Accommodation looks onto the Udderbelly and the Udderbelly pasture. There will be no taxis required to take you home to this Edinburgh Apartment making it the perfect location for the Edinburgh Festival 2013


All you need to do is press the button, wait for the green man, cross the road and you are home, hey presto! Collecting a chippy from the famous late night Chip shop a few doors along is optional but highly recommended.


We are also delighted to have a brand new Edinburgh Festival Apartment for the Edinburgh Festival 2013, a beautiful studio Edinburgh Apartment in a quiet courtyard right in the middle of the vibrant Grassmarket, heart of the Edinburgh Festival. We have full availability in the Edinburgh Festival Apartment and with online pricing and booking you could secure this amazing Edinburgh Festival Accommodation before it gets snapped up!
