I booked my team into this hotel because of the great deal on 10 rooms or more and because of its proximity to union street in Aberdeen. The location was reasonably quiet with limited car parking...which I was lucky enough to get my small van into. The hotel receptionists were very efficient and friendly. No trouble getting all the rooms...

Many thanks for your review Hugo R It's good to see that you and your team had an enjoyable stay and well done for bagging one of our precious parking spaces! If you don't manage the same next time, the multi-storey is just up the road and is priced very reasonably. Hope to see you again soon. Kind regards Murray...

First time using a Holiday Inn express, normally use a competitor. Room was exactly as advertised though the outside of the building doesn't look as warm and welcoming as the publicity shots but rather drab.

Many thanks for your comments SJC94 Apologies that you felt the exterior of the building did not meet your expectations, we would love to have done things differently but unfortunately, planning restrictions were very tight when the hotel was constructed. It is however good to see that the interior was as you expected and you had an enjoyable stay. Hope...

great stay, unfortunate about the all night bakery across the road, but clean, efficient, good staff, and as we learned, Dog friendly, which we only learned later, would stay here again for sure, if youu need peace and quiet to sleep ask for a room at the back

Many thanks for your review chastity-floozie (loving the username!) Glad to see you enjoyed your stay and yes, we are happy to accept well behaved dogs in all but the public areas of the hotel. The all night bakery is a bit of a double-edged sword; on the one hand it's nice to have easy access to fresh baked pastries...

We got a great price for a weekend night at this property. I found the staff very friendly and helpful. I wasn't expecting the car park machines would only accept coins but fortunately the hotel staff were able to give change.

Great location on Chapel street so close to union street and all of the city centre. The hotel is brightly lit and easy to find. As all the 10 parking spaces were taken we parked in the council car park at the end of the street free until 1pm on a Sunday. The rooms were basic but clean and had...

We had no complaints about the cleanliness of the room but it was absolutely sweltering hot and the window would only open a few inches. There was no fan. Also, the room was above a generator of some sort and it was pretty noisy. On arrival the staff were unhelpful. The information was on the basis that one had to...

Thanks for your review Pat T We are planning to install air conditioning when the hotel undergoes a refurbishment in the not too distant future. This will certainly solve the problem you experienced with the heat. I'm not sure exactly what caused the noise you experienced as we don't have any generators but I will nonehteless ask our maintenance engineer...

This hotel is conveniently located on a street next to Union Street which made going out in the evening very easy. The room was very comfy and the staff were helpful. There was a small selection to choose from at breakfast. There is also a 24 hour bakery right across the road from the hotel which can come in handy.

Considering the price of hotels in Aberdeen this is a decent basic hotel. Its clean the staff are nice enough and its one of the cheaper places to book. I recommend booking in advance as hotel rooms book up fast if alot of oil workers stranded are in town due to bad flying conditions.

Holiday Inn Express, Aberdeen is nicely located close to the centre of Aberdeen.
