The staff at the hotel were very welcoming and helpful. The rooms are a typical HI Express layout although the designer who developed the odd shaped desk which juts out into the room needs to be sacked. The bed was way too soft, and putting the heated under the odd shaped desk was fitting with the rest of the crazy...

Many thanks for your feedback 432gavinb It's good to see that you scored the hotel highly for service and cleanliness although I'm sorry you found the beds too soft. The room layout was standard for the brand when the hotel was first built but will undoubtedly change when our refurbishment takes place in the not-too-distant future. Hopefully when this happens...

Typically great Express hotel. Decent room, quiet, reasonable breakfast and a great location just off the main shopping street with loads of eating and drinking options as well as small supermarkets. The only possible gripe is that there isn't much parking but that probably reflects the location.

Many thanks for your comments henry h It's great to see that you enjoyed your visit and liked our city centre location. A lack of sufficient parking spaces is indeed a bit of a problem but we are lucky to have the large multi-storey facility just up the road which is free to use for most of the night. Hope...

Clean and comfortable hotel in Aberdeen. Check in process was quick and easy and reception staff were polite, friendly and helpful. Room had everything necessary for a comfortable stay. Bathroom was clean and fresh though it only had a shower cubicle whereas it would have been nice after a long journey to have a relaxing soak in a bath. Would...

The location of this hotel is great but sadly on this occasion the service level was below the normal standard. The room was stiflingly hot and despite repeated attempts with reception to get this fixed there was never any confirmation that the issue had been fixed. This left me unwilling to put the heating on for fear of overheating the...

Slightly disappointing hotel which is a bit tired and noisy. As ever with Aberdeen the prices are very high - it's a demand/supply thing fuelled by the oil industry. I paid £125 for a small room overlooking Chappel Street at the front of the hotel which was quite noisy throughout the night. On the positive side the WiFi was free...

Many thanks for your comments Willowbank1959 The nature of the market up here in Aberdeen does indeed result in hotels being rather expensive although we are confident that our rates compare well to our competitors in the city centre.

As a regular accommodator of HI hotel rooms this is one of my budget preferences, just off Union Street tucked down Chapel Street it is a basic hotel, no restaurant but a basic breakfast is provided.
