Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Aberdeen City Centre
Average city hotel.
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
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
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
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
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!
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
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
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
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
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.

... the Virgin arrivals lounge for our second breakfast of the day and Mandy got a quick nail treatment, we then headed over to Terminal 2 where our last flight of the holiday was leaving from. The next couple of hours were spent having a look around, shopping and having our third breakfast of the day! Before long it was time to go home and the end to another great trip!
We are up at six to make dure we have time to enjoy the wonderful breakfast you always get at the Sukhothai. We have ordered a taxi for 8.00 which as it happens turns out to be too early. It is a public holiday in Thailand for the King's birthday so rather than being stuck in the usual traffic jams we sail straight to the airport in half an hour.
When we get on board there is the usual commotion getting seated. Two ...
... special and important part of this big day. We had an amazing harpist playing a Scottish wedding song, “Looking at a Rainbow through a dirty window”, which doesn't have the most romantic title, but it truly has a beautiful sound and rhythm to it. At first David was turned around so he couldn't see me, but as soon as we made it to the front, he turned and we saw each other for the first time. I was teary eyed down the aisle (yes I was one of those brides) but I ...
... way home. So that Christmas present went out the window. Well actually I glued it up and gave it to her but it sucked as a teapot and I have been feeling guilty ever since.
THAT WAS 2012!!!
Now, in 2014, I finally got that guilt off my chest.
And then talking to mum, I took back the title of colossal **** by thinking mange toute was pronouced Mang Towt.
... went back to her gorgeous little one bedroom apartment.It is so adorably cute, and oh my good goodness...it was TIDY!You don't realise how much you miss female company until you spend a day with your girl friends and go back to their house...when you live with three guys! Fair to say, I never want to see a dirty dish again...So yeah, that was my getting warmer day...let's hope it stays that way!
