Portable hotel erected in centre of Edinburgh for festival season
The Snoozebox is a series of portacabins which are driven into place on the back of a lorry and take just 72 hours to turn into a "village".
The owners are bringing the hotel to Scotland for the first time to set up during the festival at the empty Caltongate site between the Royal Mile and Calton Road.
The accommodation will have rooms, a restaurant and bar. The compact rooms will cost £149 a night and sleep two adults and a child.
The hotel has already been set up at Silverstone and Goodwood for the racing and at Windsor for the jubilee.
Graham Birse, from the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce, said: "We need to provide our visitors and artists with the best quality accommodation at the best available price. This seems to be an innovative and effective solution."
The Caltongate site has lain empty for the past decade as the land has changed hands. Planning permission was granted for a hotel, conference centre, offices, shops and new homes but the company who owned the site went under.
The hotel will be in place between August 6 and September 3.
