“Clean, comfortable, and relatively convenient”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at Murphy's Place for 3 nights in June and had a great time. If you don't mind a bit of extra walking, all of Edinburgh's main sights are easily available to you (there's also a lot of bus/public transportation option, although we didn't make use of them). The apartment is well-equipped, especially if you're planning to cook/eat some of your meals in-house. There were 6 of us total and we didn't feel cramped, even with four of us on twin beds. We would gladly stay here again should we return to Edinburgh.

“Good location but a bit noisy”
Reviewed 27 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A very well equipped and comfortable apartment which was a good base for visiting everything Edinburgh had to offer and the Festival. Parking at the back is a bonus and Edele kindly gave us an extra car parking pass.
As it is a city location some street noise is to be expected. However noises from adjoining apartments plumbing was an issue for us e.g. flushing toilets plus occasionally a noise just like someone drilling into a wall. I can only assume it was a very noisy tap or shower. I realise this is not under the control of the owner but something to consider if you are a light sleeper. It marred an otherwise fantastic week at the Festival.

Thank you very much for your review and your kind words, I am so sorry to read that you had issues with noise from plumbing from adjoining properties. It is good for me to have this information, I am grateful that you have brought this to my attention. I will investigate and have this resolved soonest. I only regret that you did not mention this to me when we met for your check out, as no one else has made me aware of these issues. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday. Many thanks and kind regards Edele.

“Brilliant.”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Easy to book, great communication, fantastic apartment, spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, great showers, everything you need is provided. 10-15 minute walk into town or 2 mins to bus stop. Could not wish for a better place to stay with a group of friends.

“Hopetoun St Apartment - Home away from home!”
Reviewed 21 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015
1
person found this review helpful

The Hopetoun St Apartment was better than advertised. The photos online do not do justice to the size and open layout of the flat. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, glasses, cutlery, and cooking implements and had both a dishwasher and a washing machine (despite Edele's instructions, we managed to fail to wash one load of laundry as intended and it needed a second run through the machine before it came clean - other than that everything was perfect and having a washing machine at all made our stay even easier).

There was plenty of tour guides, maps and books to help us with our sightseeing and the location was excellent. We were a group of fellow runners in town to run the marathon relay and therefore all used to walking but we found little difficulty in the 20 minute walk to the Royal Mile and 10 minutes to Princes street. There are also a lot of good eateries in the neighborhood.

What made the place especially nice was how friendly and helpful Edele was. She really made us feel welcome and definitely helped to make our stay a special one. We are already recommending the place to friends and families, especially those with children as the place is set up perfectly for a group of singleton friends or a couple with up to four kids.

Special note for marathoners: The start of the marathon at Regent and London Roads is only about a 15 minute walk from the front door, making marathon morning very stress-free!

We would definitely stay here again next time we are in Edinburgh with friends!

“Excellent location, excellent apartment”
Reviewed 12 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a 4 night stay here - 5 adults - and loved it. Spotlessly clean (thank you Edele and Nan) and just 15 mins walk to Princes Street. Very comfortable with everything we could possibly need, comfy beds and supermarkets close by. Highly recommend it!
