Eleven great Airbnb properties in Edinburgh (just in time for the Fringe)

Heading to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this August and need accommodation? Here are some of the coolest-looking Airbnb options

Accommodation website Airbnb has earned a great reputation in recent years as the go-to service for travellers in need of a place to crash (and for local hosts with beds to offer). Seeing as the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is almost upon us, we've had a look and picked out some of the coolest-looking properties available to rent - and, if you're an Edinburgh native with some room to spare, these places should give you an idea of what the market looks like.

In addition to matching weary travellers with welcoming locals, Airbnb is also hosting a series of cabaret performances in an Edinburgh residence throughout the Fringe, featuring Ali McGregor, Die Roten Punkte, Michael Griffiths, Lynn Ruth Miller, Amelia Ryan, The Creative Martyrs, Jody Kamali, Butt Kapinsky, Tomas Ford and Glenn Wool. You've got to be either a guest or a host to get tickets though, so make sure you sign up.

This one's located not far from Easter Road, meaning it's close enough for getting involved in all the Festival action but far enough away if you want to escape the hustle and bustle. A steal at £50 a night.

You don't get this flat to yourself, but by the sound of the guest reviews, your hosts (and their cats) are incredibly easy to get along with. £49 a night, and with the kind of local expertise money can't buy thrown in for free.
