Murphy and Herman (the cute dog) were great to stay with. It was our first time using Airbnb and it was a very positive experience. Beautiful and comfortable, and the location was incredible. We would definitely recommend this lovely home and hopefully stay there next time we visit Edinburgh.
We had a really nice stay in Edinburgh made all the more enjoyable by the recommendations we received, including some excellent food tips. Would recommend to anyone looking for a well located, interesting and enjoyable stay in the city.
What can I say? I spent 4 great weeks in Edinburgh and that is to a large part thanks to the warm welcome in Murphy's flat and the perfect time I had here.
Murphy was a great host, the flat is as awesome as the 5-star reviews suggest, clean, cozy, warm, exactly as advertised. Its in the heart of Edinburgh, so you can easily reach every point of interest with just a few minutes walk, but still in a quiet street and great area.
The atmosphere in the flat has always been friendly and relaxed, Murphy helped out with any questions I had and you can be as private or sociable as you like.
And if you feel like cuddling with someone, Herman the dog is very friendly and cuddly :-)
Can't recommend it more!
As others have attested, Murphy is a wealth of information about Edinburgh and his unique flat is very spacious and welcoming! All of it, including our room, the kitchen, and the bathroom were all very nicely updated and very clean. The light and the views are worth the stair climb. We had the front bedroom, which has a nice view out over the neighborhood and a peek at the water.
It was great to have the means to make really good coffee for ourselves and Murphy also provided granola and milk and some other items so we could get our day going. The wi-fi was super fast and the huge kitchen table was a nice spot to hang out and chat. It's also very nice to be able to wash and dry our clothes without spending vacation time at a laundrette.
The location of this flat is outstanding - we walked easily to the center of town, up to the Royal Mile, and (eventually) to the train station. Murphy also gave us some great eating recommendations, sending us to the nearby Stockbridge neighborhood, which is less tourist oriented but great to visit.
Besides the books and lit mentioned in the description, Murphy provides his own handbook for the flat and for Edinburgh in general; our room was also stocked with 3 or 4 guides to Scotland for further reading.
Murphy is a nice host. You must choose his house if you like food. He can recommend you some good places. His kitchen is amazing! I like his ingredients collections! Some are my favorite. His dog, Hermann is a good boy. Very cute. The room is cozy and clean. It's near everywhere. It's too short to stay and I'll definitely go back to live here.
Murphy was a great host, very flexible with arrival times which for us was much appreciated.
The room was well kept, slippers and towels were lovely added touches that made us feel comfortable and welcomed. Lovely large flat with an enviable kitchen! Thoroughly recommend Murphy's place
The location is great and the apartment is so amazing and beyond my expectation. I really enjoyed staying there and Murphy is so helpful and willing to help. And I still remember the "fried rice", thanks a lot.
Everything is perfect, highly recommend this place. The decoration of the apartment is really nice and I like it. I didn't even go out the last day when I was there and just relaxed and reading in the apartment.
everywhere is in walking distance from the apartment and very safe place.
Murphy is an excellent chap and I totally enjoyed my week's stay at his place. The time and talks/drinks/food I shared with him and his friends and guests were a precious refuge after busy and stressful work days. Murphy was extremely helpful in giving tips and advice on local places and culture - advice you can get only very rarely due to the very rare type of an erudite he is in all aspects of life. The house is immaculately clean and well ordered and the neighbourhood offers a unique variety of options for spending your time at rest and merriment altogether (in my case including an Italian food & wine shop and a musical studio close-by). Herman the steppenwolf dog is a brave, lovable and intelligent little pal who made my stay even more enjoyable and fun. I would highly recommend Murphy as a host and his luxurious flat as your temporary home in the aristocratic heart of the Capital.
I loved staying at Murphy's. The bedroom is beautiful and the kitchen and bathroom are fantastic and spotlessly clean. The bed is very comfortable and the shower is the best ever! Murphy is a great host super helpful on all aspects of staying in Edinburgh. I really enjoyed my time there, if you are thinking of staying here do, you will definitely enjoy it.
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.
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.
