      Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Aberdeen City Centre

      Average city hotel.

      from

      This was a good hotel, with just a few minor flaws.

      The heating in the corridors was on all day and night making them quite stuffy.

      The heating in the room wasnt fantastic and therefore anything below your knees froze.

      The beds in this hotel are some of the softest I have found, tough luck really as I need a hard bed to sleep on.

      The hotel's location is a double edged sword, great for walking into town, however its also on a great shortcut for the local drunks, who wander home from the bar at the end of the road at around 2 am. Even with the windows closed the noise was enough to wake you up.

      However there are a few good points about this hotel, the location, the fact its been well looked after (last refurb less than 5 years ago), and the reasonable price.

      All in all a good hotel to stay at, just remember to ask for a rear facing room.

      Great hotel, clean, comfortable & perfect location

      from

      We based our booking on trip advisor recommendation and we weren't disappointed. Great hotel, nothing flash but comfortable and clean. The location was perfect for us to hit the town for some drinks and meals with friends.

      The reception staff were very helpful with ideas of where to go out.

      Breakfast is perfect if you like a light continental breakfast and don't mind machine coffee.

      Aberdeen also has fantastic shopping that is all in walking distance of this hotel. Great for a short break in the city. There is a great little bakery and gift shop opposite the hotel, and we liked 'Soul' bar in a converted church a couple of minutes walk away on Union Street.

      All the people we meet in Aberdeen we really friendly and helpful and would recommend it. Although we had fantastic weather all weekend which helped!

      Good Hotel, too close to the action

      from

      The Express by Holiday Inn is very modern and has good facilities, all in good condition. Staff are friendly and helpful. The Holiday Inn website price of 55 for a family room for 4 (plus breakfast) made for a bargain overnight stay.

      If it sounds too good, it was. Our stay was over a Saturday night and the room was on the third floor at the front of the building, overlooking the main taxi rank for Union Street and an all-night bakery. As a result, the street outside was filled from 1am to 4am with over exuberant drinkers and clubbers trying to get a taxi home and none too quietly. Even with the window fully shut, sleep was impossible from the racket outside and a very uncomfortable night was endured.

      So, a good budget hotel, but just make sure that you insist on getting a room at the back, away from the main street, or bring ear-plugs.

      Excellent - Great Location

      from

      I stayed in this hotel in June 05. It was great value for money (49 for a double room including breakfast!). Great location, just off Union St beside all the pubs/clubs/taxi rank. The rooms are bright and modern. Only one thing, the heat in the hotel was unreal with not an ounce of air in the room.

      Excellent value and location

      from

      Excellent value for this city centre location. My room was basic but functional and attractively modern, with everything I needed. Bathroom was small but perfectly formed!

      Excellent

      from

      Have stayed here many times at a weekend and have never had any problems. The location is brilliant (no need to get a taxi from one of the dodgy taxi ranks at night). Staff are ok, breakfast is continental and ok. There is some free parking under the hotel but only about 10 spaces so if you take a car be prepared to find somewhere else to put it!

      Does what it says on the label

      from

      This place has everything you need for short stay and being fairly new it is all in good condition.

      The rooms are good, clean and airy. the bathrooms small but with everything you need including a very good shower. Breakfast is self service continental and is perfectly adequate. There is limited free car-parking but there is a large multi storey 100yds away which is free on Saturdays and Sundays.

      The hotel is well located within walking distance of Aberdeen's main street with a large choice of shops, bars and restaurants within five minutes walk including a very good Pizza Express just around the corner.

      The advertised rack rate is 69 but Holiday Inn's own website usually has this hotel at 55 for the room including breakfasts which for a room which could potentially sleep four is pretty good value.

      For good quality no-frills accommodation in a central location it is spot on

      Very clean, friendy in a excellent location

      from

      We stayed at the Express by Holiday Inn for 2 nights in January 2005 and we were very impressed. The hotel is modern, new and very clean with no visable signs of wear and tear.

      We had a room at the back of the hotel and we weren't bothered with noise, even with the window open.

      The breakfast was fine - buffet style with a wide range of options.

      Hotel location is excellent, being a 5 min walk to Union Street.

      Parking is limited under the hotel - approx 10 spaces- but there is a multi-storey at the end of the road.

      Highly recommended and we would stay here again.

      Good Value But Noisy

      from

      We stayed here for one night at the end of March, 2004. The room was a very comfortable triple, the rate was good, and the included continental breakfast had a good choice. The downtown location is excellent. The only problem we had was that we were in a front room on the second floor. It appears the air conditioning was not operational due to the time of the year, and although it would have been fine to open the window, the street noise was too much. There were inconsidate boistrous people on the street until after 2:00 am (mid week!) and the street trafic is quite busy.So, if you can keep the window closed or get a room in the back of the hotel I would highly reccomend this hotel.

      Top Location, Top Staff

      from

      Great hotel right in the city centre, very friendly staff and extremely clean rooms. The breakfast (although continental) was FREE and you can eat as much as you like. Highly reccomended.

      As I left Primark to go catch a bus, I passed an Ambulance parked at a bus stop. I looked around for the person in need of care and found a man in a bright yellow vest who was talking to the medics. I found this set up odd, but maybe the victims wear bright vests for safety ...
