Getting around

The apartment is a 15/20 minute walk from Princes Street and all the attractions of Edinburgh. From Elm Row at the top of Leith Walk you will find buses going to all parts of the city. This is about 5 minute walk from the apartment. The York Place tram stop is 7 minute walk from the apartment. I love to walk and find it easy to get around Edinburgh on foot.

Interaction with guest

I try to meet all my guests and show them around, however, if I am unable to meet you there is a key safe at the property. I live close by and I am available if required.

Very Good

“Fantastic, beautiful and a perfect location”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2017

The owner is a lovely lady who had gone out of her way for us. My wife was raised close to this apartment so it also has brought back many fond memories. We are close to the bus stop, restaurants, Leif Walk, city center, shopping and food markets. We would rate the accommodations as a 10 on the scale of 1-10. We will be back in 2019.

“Pefect apartment in a perfect location.”

Reviewed 23 Apr 2017

This is such a lovely, bright spacious apartment and was perfect for our family of 4 children and 2 adults. It is within a 15 minute walk of the centre of Edinburgh and so ideally located for exploring and enjoying all that Edinburgh has to offer, which is a lot! The apartment is very clean and very comfortable and has everything you need to ensure an enjoyable stay. The beds are super comfy, bathrooms very clean and bright, the kitchen is very well equipped with plenty of utensils, gadgets, crockery and glasses and we were delighted that there is a dishwasher too. Our children were well pleased that there was Wifi and a television with plenty of channels too so it ticked all the boxes for them! I would thoroughly recommend Edele's apartment as an ideal place to stay and would love to think that we might be back at some time in the not-to-distant future.

Had a fantastic time the apartment was wonderful a home from home. In a good location in walking distances to shops and bars etc. Excellent communication from Edele. Would definitely go back xxx


Reviewed 16 Dec 2016

Fantastic apartment, extremely well equipped, very clean and spacious. A short walk to all the attractions. We did take a taxi for 6 of us, from the nearby co-op to the castle, only cost us £7. Edele was very helpful and accommodating with our arrival time, as the traffic was busy. Would certainly stay again.

“Spotlessly clean with everything you need for your stay.”

Reviewed 24 Feb 2013

Edele was very helpful, the location is quiet yet it's only a 15 min walk into town. Good value for the price, only downside was the lack of hot water by the 5th showers but it wasn't a major issue and the apartment is really good value for the price.

Owner's reply: 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.

“Great apartment in a fabulous location”

Reviewed 15 Jan 2013

Great apartment in a fabulous location - close to shops, restaurants, theatre etc. Adele (owner) couldn't have been more accommodating. We (a family of five - 3 teenagers) lived very comfortably in the apartment for almost 3 weeks over the Christams period. There was plenty room to accomodate the 12 people we had (in total) for Christmas dinner. When we come back, this will definitely be our first choice for accommodation.

“Brilliant !”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2012

This is our second visit and once again had a fab time. The apartment is big, airy, and very clean it's like home from home! Edele the owner is a very welcoming person and nothing is a bother to her. We will definetly be back !

“Very comfortable, well heated and central.”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2012

Stayed for a week in May. The weather was very cold with daily temperatures ranging from 7 to 11 degreesC. Coming from Darwin Australia it was a bit of a shock. We did manage to get around a bit mostly by taxi and saw all the big item things, the castle the museum etc. It was wonderful to come home to a beautiful centrally heated flat after our outings. Should we or our family ever visit Edinburgh again Murphy's Place would be the only place to stay. Many thanks Edele for meeting us when we arrived and letting us stay in your lovely apartment.

“Like being home”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2011

This was the second time I stayed at Murphy's Place and the next time I need a place in Edinburgh I won't think twice to book it again. Spacious, clean, fully furnished, in a quiet neighbourhood yet pretty central. To top if off, Edele is always there if you need anything. Totally recommended.

“Excellent, was everything we hoped for.”

Reviewed 25 Jun 2011

We stayed at Murphy's Place to attend a family wedding and from the moment we arrived to meet Adele to be shown round we were delighted to find the apartment was everything we hoped for.Plenty of room for the five of us,exceptionally clean and well presented.An added bonus was the fact we were able to walk to Princess Street in about five to ten minutes.I will certainly be recommending Murphy's Place to any family and friends who intend visiting Edinburgh.
