Most helpful review

Murano house is a modern, clean and comfortable student accommodation to live at. In my first year at university, I’ve really enjoyed my colourful room, en-suite toilet, 4 person flat and the common room. I love that we’ve had a TV, dishwasher and a weekly cleaner which is above and beyond other accommodations. The Wi-Fi is world class and much better than eduroam. I regularly get 300+ mbps on my phone and 1gbps on my Ethernet connected PC. Great for big downloads and gaming. There is always someone at reception to ask for help or to collect your packages. It is also situated in a great location of leith walk with plenty of shops and restaurants. Murano house is the perfect accommodation for me :)

The location is ideal with lots of shops and cafes nearby, and really good bus links to the centre. The area feels really safe and has easy access to the tram, but is just off the main road so is quieter than other nearby accommodations. The reception staff are super friendly and helpful. There are lots of social events arranged, particularly in freshers which was great for meeting people. The Unite app makes it easy to sort maintenance issues quickly. The WIFI was complicated to set up but works fine.

Good experience overall but there were huge maintenance things over the year, like random times when they'd paint your room, upgrade the mattress, change your lights etc... was hugely annoying

Rent is extortionate. Everything about this place feels like you're being scammed because you have nowhere else to go - I didn't even apply here, or anywhere with rent within £200 a month of this level, it just makes money off the lack of options a lot of students have. Buildings poorly constructed (my cupboard door fell off), always at least one washing machine broken, and when they do work it's £5 to wash and dry (of course, they usually reveal they're not working after you've paid), fire alarms dodgy and go off at random times for a few seconds (last night it was once at 11 and once at 4am), in general if you can avoid going here, do. At least at other accommodation you'll be paying less.

Murano house is a great place to live. The staff is particularly nice (like Allan at reception) and the RAs are always giving us a lot of activities to do.

The unite staff on reception are really nice and friendly, of which Alan is especially engaging whenever I need to grab a parcel. Cleaning staff are efficient and leave the kitchens spotless

The Staff are super nice and friendly, the house is really ok, just quite expensive considering what you can get for the same amount of money. Clean enough, even though my room was still a little dirty when I moved in. Heating doesn’t turn off in my room, always super warm, and the light are really old and emit a lot of heat also. A little outside of Edinburgh, but the bus is close.

Really lovely when it was new, however the commute is a hassle and the wifi is terrible. It is very isolating being so far from campus and all the other halls.
