If I could give this hotel 6 stars I would!! I choose the cheapest room because I was there such a short time arriving late and leaving early. Wonderful, charming hosts; I arrived late they arranged a taxi and wake-up call for the next day. I have run a boutique B&B for 8 years in Dorset so I am in... More

Clean, friendly. My room was small and TV on top of a wardrobe was weird. Breakfast starts at 8-30 which was a slight problem for me with a meeting in central Edinburgh at 9 but to their credit they started early and I got cereal and coffee before my short number 11 bus ride to the centre of town, no...

Myself and my boyfriend always stay at the A-Haven, David and Ian are both so welcoming and couldnt do more to accommodate us. Beautiful freshly cooked Scottish breakfast each morning.very central to the city and the number 11 bus leaves you right to the main shopping streets.

What a great place with brilliant staff. David Kay the owner was a fabulous host and Ian and the rest of the staff were amazing. Went up for the marathon and David put on breakfast early this day for the runners and what a great brekkie. Hotel located conveniently, lovely rooms and a warm atmosphere. Thank you

Stayed here for 2 nights, rooms are dated and basic but for what you use them for its enough, the guy who runs the hotel is very helpful and very knowledgeable about Edinburgh, we walked from the hotel to the city centre and took around 25 mins but there are regular bus services. Would defiantly stay here again.

We came for the Edinburgh Half marathon. Had a great stay. Appreciated the advice and that they left out breakfast for me since I had the leave early for 2 of the 3 mornings. Both Iain and David were very helpful and kind. Hotel was very handy for transportation, which worked very well. Liked the little extras in the room... More

While spending 2 days in Edinburgh- not enough- we stayed at A-Haven which was a great complement to 2 full days of visit. Located just outside the city center, quiet area, secure parking, bus stop straight to downtown right outside door. Rooms are clean and bed very comfortable. David and staff are very nice and friendly, always ready to guide... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel owner David greeted us on arrival and was most helpful and continued to be so throughout our stay. Our room was clean and comfortable as was the bathroom. The breakfast was cooked fresh and the smoked haddock and poached eggs were delicious! All the staff are very helpful and friendly. There is... More

It's a nice, traditional B&B not too far from the city centre. The guys who run it are super nice and helpful. It's not super posh, but for the money it's great. The breakfast is particularly good, with salmon and other higher-end items on the menu.

We were there for 6 nights. Nice & clean bedroom, clean bathroom. Very good breakfast. The staff very kind & always ready to answer our questions about how or where to go around. Also this house of the XVII century (more or less) it's well comunicated with the city centre. (bus number 11 just on the opposite side of the... More
