Wonderful flat. We had 6 adults and had lots of room. Very big kitchen and living room. Very well furnished! About a 5 min walk to restaurants, food stores, and bus routes. Edele was very easy to work with. We had no issues at all.
We were met by the host and she gave us a quick run-down of all the facilities of the apartment - it had everything we could have asked for. It was in a quiet location, fairly central, about a 15-20 min walk from the castle, and supermarkets close by. There was ample parking outside the door. We had no complaints at all about the apartment and would recommend this apartment to anyone travelling for sightseeing purposes with their family. The apartment was very clean and tidy, and included a washer /dryer.
I booked this flat because I had stayed in this apartment complex on another Edinburgh visit. It is within 20-30 minutes walk of many popular sites to visit. The theaters are just about 10 minutes away as well as the Vue cinema (great place to catch a movie) Grocery stores, pubs, and other cafés are close, too.
With a lot of heavy suitcases, we really liked parking right outside the door of this ground level flat!
Inside, the flat is very well lit by the sun as well as artificial lighting. At night it was easy to close window coverings to ensure a good nights sleep.
I look closely at reviews for rentals and book those that are well reviewed.
Edele's Murphy's Place Apartment is one of the best we have stayed in based on over 18 years of travel in Europe.
Edele was a very friendly and professional hostess. She has put a great deal of effort into making her Hopetoun Flat a home away from home. We appreciated the ability to wash our clothes while we relaxed in the spacious and comfortable living area watching the television before or after a day of touring about the area.
The wifi was very strong and dependable which is a seeming necessity to most of us travelers.
The kitchen contained everything we needed to cook up some meals. Seating for meals was easy in the large dining area.
The showers had great water pressure and were easy to use. In addition to the comfortable beds, the bedrooms had closets with generous amounts of hangers and space for our clothing. We had easy to access wall outlets to charge our phones, etc. Everything in the flat worked well and it was just very relaxing to spend several days there.
The parking lot easily accommodated the 9 person van we drove. (Just five ladies, but much needed space in the van for all our luggage and space to spread out on a 17 day trip.)
I was extremely happy with this lovely flat and enjoyed working with Edele. She kept in touch with me at appropriate times and made booking and paying for the flat a pleasurable experience. I highly recommend The Hopetoun Street Apt-Murphy's Place. I hope to return for another visit!
Edele the owner was very helpful. Sent over useful information and was very communicative throughout the booking process and ahead of our visit.
The apartment itself was fabulous for us and the family which included 6 adults and 2 toddlers. It was extremely spacious and had everything we needed. The fact we didn't have to take our own cots, bedding etc was really helpful as the car was full as it was! Very good location and parking was also a huge plus.
I'll definitely be staying here again if/when we return to Edinburgh
Wonderful, clean and spacious apartment for our family - we are 2 adults and 3 (big) children, everything you need for a family. Apartment is well equipped and really home from home. It is easy walking to centre, a great location and the communication with the owner, Edele was fab. All very easy and would definitely stay again. Nicola
