WE’VE had pop up bars and restaurants – now what’s claimed to be Scotland’s first pop up hotel has arrived in Edinburgh.
With demand for hotel rooms in the capital notoriously high during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Snoozebox popped up in the old town earlier this month and will remain there until September.
The portable hotel has 48 en suite rooms, which offer accommodation for up to three guests.
Rooms are said to be furnished to a high standard, with Egyptian cotton bedding, flat-screen TVs, air conditioning and en suite wet rooms.
The Edinburgh Snoozebox also has its own bar and breakfast area and 24-hour reception.
The firm’s Susan Moorhouse said the Snoozebox is located within walking distance of some of the Festival’s most popular venues, including The Pleasance, Spiegeltent and Underbelly.
“Snoozebox is delighted to have found a central site in this historic city,” she said.
“The Snoozebox Village is perfectly situated for visiting the Festival, and we’re receiving a great deal of interest from visitors who are keen to stay in genuinely unique accommodation in the heart of Edinburgh.
“The interest and positive reaction to the product received so far after only five weeks’ marketing underpins our ambition to expand operations in Scotland generally and become an annual visitor to the Festival with a considerably bigger hotel.”
