          I rented 3 rooms with a shared kitchen/diner during last years Fringe. The rooms were quite basic but were cleaned regularly and any problems we had (e.g. the door closer broke) were sorted within a couple of hours. The reception staff and room staff were...More

          This is modern student accommodation that they let during the vacation. It's quite a big set up. The rooms are small; the bed is intimate for two, and you get a little bathroom with a shower and loo and a kitchenette. It's clean, everything works,...More

          Old Town
          Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
          labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
          this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
          visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
          that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
