Holiday Inn Express Aberdeen City Centre

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was clean, bed nice and comfortable and the staff very polite. Breakfast was limited and stocks run out of various items and not replenished quick enough. What was on offer was good quality so it has the potential to be very good. The room I stayed in was at the front and suffered from quite a lot of street noise as the window did not close fully due to a fault. On the whole not a bad place for a 1 night stay. Average price is £5 from the train station in a taxi.

pro's - location is a real plus with much accessible on foot. Car parking limited but it is a city centre and there is a cheap long stay on same street. Room size and bathroom are good (and usual) standard for this type of hire. Staff are friendly. Room rate booked close to time was very good for a city centre booking. cons - rooms very warm and difficult to naturally ventilate as windows restricted. In any case at the weekend it is just too noisy to have the window open (there are 3/4 night time venues in the same small street). Soft mattress maybe is personal choice thing but I don't like. Breakfast at the weekend is a pantomime - we had to wait 10 minutes for any tables then queue for 20 minutes to get food. There is one small hotplate which is just insufficient to service demand and throughput. Unfortunately the standard of the hot food was not great either.

Stay at this hotel quite a few times staff are very friendly and nice alecsandria from Romania was lovely look after us at the bar every night would recommend this hotel anytime rooms very clean breakfast in the morning was ace

Would recommend this hotel staff are really friendly alecsandria from romaina was lovely got great service of her at the bar nothing was to much trouble been here a few times wouldn't go anywhere else

Stayed at holiday Inn express aberdeen Scotland fabulous place clean spacious rooms plus excellent breakfast friendly staff bus stop outside hotel would recommend this place lots of places to see A must is the nature reserve and Lossiemouth beach

On arrival the sofa bed in the room had not been made up, again another annoying point with holiday inn they only provide 2 teabags per room. They did not have a great selection of drinks at the bar (for being located in the city centre)?!? I have stayed in other holiday inns in Aberdeen for less money and been very happy however I would not make this my first choice of hotel if I stayed in Aberdeen overnight again. Only positive was the location. Breakfast items were also few and far between

A last minute booking saw me arrive in Aberdeen for 3 nights at The Holiday Inn Express. There's limited parking available (free) under the hotel but there's a perfectly safe Multi-Story 100yrds further up Chapel St. Check in was swift although I had to change room as someone had clearly used my allocated room prior to me arriving - sorted quickly by reception! Standard room, good bed, clean bathroom and within 60 seconds walk of Union Street! Perfect location for the bars, restaurants, banks and shops.

stayed two nights, hotel is now looking tired, but still serviceable and clean. Having stayed previously the staff make this Express. Situated two minutes walk from Union Street with a convenient taxi rank. The breakfast is also worth the value and compares with other venues. Had a problem with wi-fi in the room and he problem was resolved immediately by Agathe, with a room change. The plus points are a good shower, a room to the back, no view but quiet, the area, the staff. The negatives are the decor is now worn, and needs a makeover. Would we stay here again, for a couple of nights yes.

Stayed over 2 nights in June, great location hotel being very central to Aberdeen's nightlife. Clean and cosy room, no view from room but that was fine. Parking - I had to park in a nearby public car park due to no spaces in the hotel one (only 8 spaces avail) but the parking in the hotel car park was horrendously tight anyway with big concrete pillers. Breakfast was good.

People from staff were really helpfull. ..specialy Alexandra. ..breakfast was sufficient. .. it was very pleasant staying in this hotel...I recommend for tourists and also if you are in business trip. ..As location near union street. .restaurants are plenty in hotel area. ..
