Why stay at A-Haven Townhouse?


The first and foremost reason for choosing A-Haven
 would have to be your host, David.
  Having worked in the catering industry for over 30 years,
 there isn’t much he doesn’t know about the business.
 His career started as Chef in one of Edinburgh’s top Hotels followed by several years of Hotel Management and now continuing here as
 Proprietor of A-Haven Townhouse Hotel.

But it’s not just his knowledge and experience of the industry that will impress you. What will impress more than anything will be his genuine welcome along with all the attention and friendliness you could possibly desire. This, coupled with a knowledge of Edinburgh that will make you tear up your guide books, will ensure that your stay in Edinburgh will be a memorable one.
 As all of our guests will tell you, David is the perfect host.
 His permanent smile during arrival and his permanent smile at departure will leave you wondering if it has actually been painted on.
 Of course, you may never want to leave.


The Hotel was built in 1862 and was formerly a house to a very wealthy merchant. Situated very close to Edinburgh city centre and the famous Port of Leith, this residence was ideal for wealthy Edinburgh merchants who needed to be only a short distance from all the city had to offer.

Today, as a busy 3 star Hotel, guests enjoys a tranquil retreat which is only minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. So. you get the best of all worlds really. Very cheap prices, very comfortable bedrooms, a breakfast to satisfy even the most discerning and access to all the attractions within minutes.


Our private cark, with space for around 7 cars, is very popular with guests. As you might expect, it's absolutely free and is secured by way of an electric gate. Guest can use a remote to have the freedom of using their car if they wish.




Unlike other establishments, we will always try to give you all the information you need on arrival so that your holiday gets off to the best possible start.

Of course, if all this attention and pampering is not what you're looking for, you can have the option of total privacy if you so wish.
