The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is the single greatest celebration of arts and culture, and this year celebrates its 75th anniversary. So you know it’s going to be big! From 05 – 29 August 2022. The city of Edinburgh welcomes creative energy from around the world. With artists and performers presenting shows for every taste and audience. Performers include big international entertainment through unknown artists launching their careers and include artists from theatre, comedy, dance, physical theatre, circus, cabaret, children’s shows, musicals, opera, music, spoken word, exhibitions and more. It’s an event to attend at least once in your life.
One thing though – it’s vital to book your accommodation ahead. So often, as soon as the festival ends, people book for the following year and venues sell out ahead of time. But where to stay? That depends on what you’re looking for. Do you want the space and freedom of a holiday apartment, or would you prefer a hotel? Or, why choose? Why not have both?
Native Edinburgh: Ideal Festival Accommodation
Tucked in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed New Town. Native Edinburgh is in the centre of all the festival action, making it the perfect location for your stay. With history, gorgeous design, and a central location – on Queen Street opposite Queen Street Gardens, only a short walk from Edinburgh Castle and Princes Street Gardens – this Apart Hotel has it all. Each apartment is either a studio or one-bedroom, providing space and all the amenities you’d expect from a luxury apartment while also benefiting from every extra you’d expect from a boutique hotel. That includes a restaurant and lounge bar, excellent room service if you need a lie-in after a big night, and cleaning for your space. It’s also close to transport links so you can quickly and easily zip around the city to stay amid all the festival happenings.
And speaking of our in-venue restaurant and bar – which we call The Counter – is perfect for a night at home. With curated food, drinks, and events, the venue highlights local produce during the day while spotlighting local talent at night. Outside of festival times, we host neo-soul jazz nights and spoken word poetry while providing a space for up-and-coming creatives to perform. Check the website or ask at reception for special festival events that will be taking place. With speak-easy vibes and cocktails galore, The Counter will entice you to spend a night in.
