Be part of the longest running film festival

The Edinburgh International Film Festival holds the title as the longest running festival in the world. This two-week festival takes place every year in Edinburgh since it was first held in 1947. The only recent change was that the festival period was moved from August and is now held in June every year.

This international festival brings film enthusiasts flocking to Edinburgh each year to be part of this vibrant festival. Visitors come to see the screening of feature length films, short films, animations as well as music videos and documentaries.

Local as well as overseas newspapers laud the Edinburgh International Festival as ‘the’ event not to be missed. Over the years, this festival has expanded to a truly amazing event. It is no wonder that people come from all over to be part of this festival. Many avid festival-goers book accommodation months in advance.

A great place to rest your head

Serviced apartments ranging from luxury apartments with several bedrooms, mid-range with well-appointed fittings are very popular. Groups of young festival-goers often club together for a highly economical serviced apartment in the mid or economy range. As serviced apartments charge per apartment and not per person, this is an excellent saving for groups.

Serviced apartments are not only hugely popular because of the economic price. These apartments appeal to families and groups because of the comfort and relaxed atmosphere they have.

People have total privacy, well-appointed accommodation where they can come and go according to their own schedules. Festival-goers can attend whatever festival events they wish and return to their apartment without inconveniencing anyone.
