Holiday Inn Express Aberdeen City Centre

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Aberdeen done themselves proud by providing the staff at this hotel. From the first welcome at reception to the check out day, we as a family received nothing but the best customer service. Rooms was adequate for what we needed, and kept clean and tidy. Breakfast in the morning was good and clean with a good selection for the kids. Located perfectly in the centre of Aberdeen, the hotel made it easy for us to get around and made easy for shopping in the city. Good job to the staff for making our stay enjoyable.

The hotel was easy to find although I'm not sure the difference between Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express. They are next door to each other. We parked in the Express car park as the Holiday Inn car park was full. The room was ok, it was large, a bit dated and no sockets next to the bed which is a bit annoying for charging phones. The hotel was far out from the centre but just next door to the exhibition centre, so it depends what your in Aberdeen for. I would like to add the staff were really friendly although I thought I left my diary in the room and so I called the hotel, they said they would check and phone back. They never phoned back, I found my diary so I had no reason to persevere.

For a short business break this was a perfect room. Small but Clean and tidy , the bathroom was excellent with a really powerful shower and all the amenities included. Breakfast was fully stocked and tables were kept clean at all times.

As with most Holiday Inns, the set up Is pretty much as expected. Efficient check in, clean rooms and well laid out . Nice central location at a very good price. Price was good as also included breakfast for two. Would have been a 4 star review but the breakfast was poor. I appreciate its included in the cost, which was very reasonable. However que for the self service buffet was horrendous and the lay out was poor along with the quality. Nice hotel in a good location. If it were an option id skip the breakfast.

We spent two nights in this hotel in August as a wee weekend away before the kids went back to school. Honestly, we chose the hotel for a combination of it's central location on Union Street and price: we got a decent deal on two rooms for two nights (£220). The rooms were a decent size, with a decent en suite, had large fully opening windows and a large comfy bed. The decor was a bit tired, and the wee two seater couch in the corner was a bit worse for wear / lightly stained / falling to bits. A good, albeit limited, breakfast was included in the cost and, since it was free, I can't really offer any complaints on it. There was something to suit everyone. We didn't use the bar in the evening as we spent most of our time out and about, but it seemed nice enough. Staff were pleasant, but unremarkable. Service was delivered with a smile. We'd definitely stay here again, especially if the rooms received a wee refresh in future.

Solid hotel in the centre of Aberdeen on Chapel Street. Rooms are clean tidy and functional. Staff pleasant and friendly and in a very good location close to Union Street. Lovely pie and pastry shop opposite. Basic bar and breakfast but nothing to complain about. Only issue is overpricing for Offshore Europe like a lot of other hotels;£295 !

This property was very similar to the one we stayed in Edinburgh but small. This one had more of a business feel to it rather than a vacation spot. It was quiet and peaceful. The breakfast was the usual standard, eggs, bacon, cereal, toast, pastries etc. It was clean and that's priority 1 for me.

Have stayed on this hotel for many years. Great location in the city center. A bit worn and due for a makeover. Clean rooms good beds. An an OK breakfast buffet. Good value for the money. Will stay here again.

Great Location, small car park, but large council car park 150yds away. £2 to 10 in the morning. Friendly staff, nice bar and public areas. Very Good FREE breakfast. Comfy bed & the only thing that stopped this hotel getting a 4+ rating was the tired state of room, whilst clean there was a 'workman' odour to the room. However we did only pay £53 last minute on a Friday night in August
