I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Murphy’s beautiful home. It’s an extremely impressive apartment in a really excellent location. As all the other reviews have already attested to, Murphy is a superb host. After a lovely week in the house, he made delicious crepes on my last night for pancake Tuesday, which left a great final impression.
I stayed with Murphy for two days in a stormy and cold Edinburgh. This did not matter a thing because Murphy and his home is so full of warmth and welcoming.
As a host Murphy is super friendly, helpful and generous. The neighbourhood is right on the doorstep of great neighbourhoods like Stockbridge, Central town and the train station. The house is very clean and full of character. I would love to come back and stay with Murphy and his schnauzer Hermin.
Murphy was an absolutely amazing host! Arriving in Edinburgh alone on New Years Eve was daunting to say the least, but he made me feel so welcome and at home it really made my transition easier. He was so hospitable and willing to help out in any way he could, from food, sim cards, even to dropping me at my next accommodation with my suitcases. Hermann was an absolute delight, I can honestly say he made my stay even more enjoyable than it already would have been. I can't recommend Murphy enough to anyone thinking of staying in Edinburgh!
Murphy is a great host. He is welcoming and full of recommendations and helpful tips pre-arrival and when you are staying. The house is large and homely. The room is massive. Herman is a cute and well behaved dog. He is adorable! I can't recommend staying with Murphy enough. The house is clean and tidy. The kitchen is massive and Murphy allowed me to use it as much as I needed. He is a great guy and makes you feel comfortable and right at home while you stay. Thanks Murphy. You are awesome!
Our three nights staying at Murphy's place were thoroughly enjoyable. The location is excellent; 5 mins walk from the centre & station (which ensures you avoid the worst of the crowds) and yet only a 10 min stroll down the hill to the bohemian Stockbridge quarter - a hidden treasure rammed with lovely cafes, restaurants and independent stores.
The flat itself is warm and welcoming, reflecting Murphy's character with charming individual touches in the decor. Our room was genuinely huge, and the bed gave us necessary comfort after long walks in the city during the day.
Murphy was an superb host; diligent to our needs but at the same time relaxed and very easy to talk to. For gastronomy-lovers, his flat represents something of a pilgrimage, and the kitchen is stocked with everything you could need to cook up a storm. Murphy's dog hermann is an absolute dude, too - we would've happily taken him home!
My two word review: Highly recommended.
We normally try and book a whole apartment when we travel, but liked the sound of Murphy and Liza's home so much we decided to just rent a room there - and we are so glad we did!
Their place has all the qualities we seek out when choosing a place. It's full of character (high ceilings and roaring peat and coal fires!) and Murphy and Liza are super friendly, unpretentious hosts. We spent many late nights chatting with them and petting Hermann the dog. Everything is super clean and comfortable and it was a great place to come back to after long wintry days exploring Edinburgh. Their neighbourhood is also fantastic and you have great restaurants, cafes and a farmer's market less than 10 mins walk away.
We'll definitely be eager to return!
The location is great, the appartment is indeed stylish, comfortable and spotlessly clean. In addition, Murphy is a fantastic host.
This was a one-of-a-kind airbnb. Ideal location, cool artwork, and a great room. Murphy struck a great balance between being professional and welcoming. Everything was clean and tidy, and Hermann is a wonderful dog. We had a great time!
Murphy was a great host! He welcomed us with his happy dog Herman. Herman was very well trained puppy and sweet! The room we stayed was very good size and had a closet and a desk. The room had every thing we needed. The bed was so comfortable that it was hard to get up in the morning :) Murphy's friend Fiona was very kind too! We were really happy to meet them and get to know them. They made our trip to Edinburgh extra happy and fun! The location of his place was perfect! Walking distance to everywhere, and it is very centrally located. We really had great time at Murphy's place and we recommend his place 120%!
Big and cozy room, the apartment is super charming and so well located you can walk everywhere. The host is very friendly and helpful, and there is the bonus of Herman, the dog. It feels like home and it's also lots of fun! When I come back to Edinburgh I will definitely stay here again.
Very nice people. Everything perfect.
Murphy and his friend were very nice, kind people. They looked after my apartment very well. Thank you!
Murphy and Lisa are good people and they where the perfect guests. They treated my apartment with a grate respect and left it neat and clean. I recomand them as guests.
Rien a dire de special sur ce voyageur. Tout s'est bien passe.
Murphy is a very nice quy and his dog Sherman is quiet and lots of fun. I can recommend him as a guest to anyone.
Very friendly,interesting people...perfect guests...!!!!
Very sympathetic pair with a cute cuddly dog.
Murphy and his friend were great guests and left everything in a very good state. I would totally recommend him!
Murphy was a great guest. Very outgoing, prompt on arrival and left the apartment in perfect condition! Would definetly host again!
Murphy is a super easy going guy - we would be happy to see him in Bangkok next time.
Not only is this flat a haven of comfortable sofas, convivial kitchen and fun chatty people - who know how to entertain - but it's so central that getting to any major event or location takes no longer than 15 minutes by foot! This is easily on of the best places in town to stay and I'd happily recommend it.
Murphy's hospitality is excellent, he is a very good cook, his knowledge of local hotspots (be it food, art or music related scenes) is also vast. Very amiable chap who keeps a tidy home.
I would happily recommend this place to anyone thinking about visiting Edinburgh.
