Well located downtown Appart Hotel with a parking lot only for guests, very practical for a one week stay. The flat is small but well maintained with all amenities. Staff was helpful and professional. Even though they helped for the luggage, a lift could be really useful.

Staff was helpful after calling 3 times to try to figure out where the car park was located. It is in the middle of hustle/bustle and when sleeping with windows open (no a/c) I found that restful sleep just wasn't happening. Breakfast was continental with full breakfast available for a small fee. It is a small apartment like setting and...

Skene House, Holburn, Aberdeen: Something that was a plus and a minus was that our travel partner put us in the center of downtown, which I believe we indirectly asked for, in each city for lodging. Google maps brought us into Aberdeen using an indirect approach; which I’m very glad of. Although it was initially confusing as we were entering...

Overall, the Skene House Holburn was a very good place to stay. The apartment was of good size, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good although because we stayed a longer period of time, it got boring - no variety. Staff in the breakfast room was wonderful and they deserve an excellent rating. Front desk staff was courteous and professionally friendly....

Stayed here for several weeks during work in Aberdeen. Very helpful staff. Located central in Aberdeen with walking distance to most of the things to do in Aberdeen. The buss to the Beach stops in front of the hotel. Our room had anything we needed for staying there.

Booked an apartment door five nights. Had absolutely everything you need for a comfortable stay. Apartment clean and plenty of room for two. Would definitely recommend and probably book again. Also little extras like a free drink included. Good choice of continental breakfast included and cooked items available at an additional charge. Staff friendly and helpful.

One of the best hotel ever been in UK, central location and very nice staff. If you want to come here, get the executive room: spacious with 2 rooms plus kitchen. Breakfast very generous, first drink free at the bar. Good pub at 20 meters. Recommended.
