“Great apartment in a lovely city.”
Reviewed April 18, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Lovely spacious apartment, well fitted out, very clean and tidy. Edele was a lovely host, she greeted us and give a quick tour of the apartment. The site is well situated to walk or drive to Edinburgh or further afield. 10 minutes quick walking and you are in the heart of Edinburgh. So lucky with weather, sunshine every day !!.

“Perfect, stress-free stay!”
Reviewed March 25, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

First of all, Edele is wonderful! A group of us--six humans and a service dog--stayed here while attending a conference at Edinburgh uni, and from the first enquiry she was so informative and helpful! (And flexible, as our numbers fluctuated a little bit between the time we asked and the time we arrived.) She's so easy to deal with; renting as a group can be a pain but this worked out very easily. The directions to the the property were also easy to follow, frankly much easier than Googlemaps.

The flat itself is excellent--clean and roomy and comfortable. There are three bedrooms (one double, two twins), all with comfy beds and enough room to unpack and make yourself at home. Two bathrooms--one ensuite to the master bedroom--one with a huge deep bathtub.

The kitchen was well-stocked with pots, pans and dishes, so we were able to get a few groceries and fend for ourselves over the days. There's also a large dining table so we could all sit together, and a dishwasher to deal with the inevitable detritus of six students cooking. There's also a great lounge with sofas and a TV, so after a long day of working or sightseeing or both, we came back and were able to just chill out together watching TV and playing board games. We weren't squished in at all, but very comfortable!

The internet was reliable and fast--essentially for us, as we were finishing presentations and such last-minute!--and everything was easy to work and to find. There's also a box full of takeway menus and a list of useful phone numbers.

The flat is about a half-hour's walk from Edinburgh Uni, 15-20 minutes from Waverly train station (depending on how fast a walker you are) and 10 minutes if that from a bus stop. The number 7 and 14 buses will take you to South Bridge, close to the uni, the Royal Mile, the National Museum and such. It took us a little longer sometimes because there was a blizzard, but what can you do about the weather?

Anyway, tapadh leat Edele, we'll be in touch when we next come back!

Liked best: I wanted to keep the kitchen. It's huge and glorious.
Liked least: Nothing, really. I guess it could be transplanted somewhere closer in, but then it would be loud, so this was better.

Management Response
5 Mar 2013
Thank you for your kind comments. Since your visit, another guest mentioned the hot water issue to me, so I had a plumber fix the problem immediately (the water pressure needed to be adjusted). The apartment has a combi boiler therefore there should be constant hot water regardless of how many showers guests have, it is now working properly again. I am very sorry all was not as it should have been for your stay. Kind regards Edele.

“Very cozy place, conviniently located.”
Reviewed February 24, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We stayed at Edele's place with extended family 'n kids and enjoyed the super convinient location (walking distance to Princess street) and few minutes to bus route. Couldnt have picked a betetr place for a short stay with family. Edele had been extremely helpful and responsive to any needs or changes during the stay. Free parking was another big plus. Highly recommended place and host, Five Stars.

“Spacious apartment with all mod cons for a relaxed stay in Edinburgh.”
Reviewed February 22, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Clean, spacious, warm and nicely decorated flat in a quiet residential area. We really enjoyed our stay at this Hopetoun St Apt! Just needed to figure out how to pronounce Hopetoun.

“Lovely modern spacious apartment and perfect location”
Reviewed January 31, 2013 for a stay in November 2012

Murphy's place was ideal for our party of 6, very spacious and modern and the location was perfect, less than a 10 minute walk to Princess Street.

I couldn't fault the place and Edele (the owner) was very helpful. When visiting Edinburgh again i will definitely be booking tthe apartment for our visit and would recommend Murphy's place to anyone.
