A NEW CITY CENTRE hotel is offering a city first initiative offering free hotel rooms Edinburgh Festival Fringe performers throughout the festival.
YOTEL Edinburgh is the first city centre hotel for the tech inspired hotel group and has officially opened its doors this week.
The hotel is celebrating the launch with a ONE Night Stand-Up inviting accredited Fringe performers to take part in a series of open- mic sessions from 12 noon- 1pm each day throughout August.
The 277-room property will offer 10 complimentary cabins per night, with a total of 240 throughout August.
Those who receive the best reception from hotel guests will be rewarded with a complimentary stay that night in the hotel, becoming some of the first guests to experience the new hotel.
Cabins are inspired by the luxury of first-class airline travel and features space-saving design delivering extraordinary value.
From the VIP Suite to Premium Cabins, YOTEL Edinburgh offers something to suit every traveller’s needs, without compromising on comfort and convenience and without the hefty price tag.
The hotel’s multifunctional public areas provide a sense of community with spaces for co-working and socialising, including a 360-degree cinema room and YOTEL’s signature KOMYUNITI area which offers flexible spaces along with areas to relax and entertain and a full bar.
Stuart Douglas, General Manager of YOTEL Edinburgh, said: “There’s nowhere quite like Edinburgh during August, so to be opening a new hotel this time of year is incredibly exciting. It’s no secret that rising accommodation costs for both performers and guests is an ongoing issue, and so to thank the city for welcoming us with open arms, we wanted to give something back.”
“Affordable hotel rooms in the city centre are like gold dust and we have a unique opportunity to use our hotel to support the performers who bring so much to our city at this time of year.
“Even if they have already secured and booked accommodation elsewhere, they can still escape and enjoy a one-night-stand with us in the heart of the city.
“We’re really excited to see who might come through our doors this month.”
