Overall my stay at this hotel was excellent.The Hotel had a fresh modern look and the reception very welcoming.The position of the Hotel could not have been better with both the railway and bus stations within easy walking distance.The only downside to my stay was the Breakfast the hot food selection was the same everyday and was far from being hot and more towards lukewarm so in my opinion not very inviting.On the third morning decided not to have hot food and chose cold buffet instead which was very enjoyable.I would definitely stop at this Hotel again if in Aberdeen again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nanina good value for money
I stayed in this hotel with my boyfriend at the beginning of August. The hotel is located right in the city centre and has its own parking - even if sometimes you might find it full as it can only accommodate about 10-15 vehicles (anyway, there's a multi storey car park nearby). The staff at the reception were always ready to give you any advice you might need. The room was quite big and very comfortable. The breakfast did not totally satisfy us as there was not much choice in the sweets corner and the quality did not seem to measure up to the standard of the hotel itself. Nothing to complain about cleaningness of room and bathroom. Would definitely return and recommend.

Easy Hotel to get to from Bus Station once you know what number buses to get. Couldn't be handier for shops.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Touristfromusa Very courteous staff and great service
I stayed at this hotel for two weeks during my stay in Aberdeen. The staff were very kind, helpful and courteous and took great care to address my needs and concerns. The hotel is located right in the center of the city and is within walking distance to several restaurants and places on interest.
The only improvements I would suggest are to provide more lighting in the bedrooms and more breakfast food choices. The lights are too dim and inadequate and hence reading/writing and working on the computer is a bit stenuous to the eye. If more lighting with brighter bulbs are provided, I can assure you that this is one of the best hotels to stay in Aberdeen!!
Also it would be nice if you had a few more breakfast choices or vegetarian and rotate/change the menu on aregular basis so that guests are not bored of eating the same food for the entire duration of their stay.

Stopped off for an overnight and as like most other HIE hotels the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was spotless but on a personal note the beds are too soft for my liking - but as it is
only for a night I can certainly cope with that. Would also recommend HIE/Indigo.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tucks47 Breakfasts
As a visitor to Scotland we think it would have been nice to have a taste of Scottish fare for breakfast such as Butteries or Softies ect instead of the NOT very nice croissants that are there as an alternative to bread. Also the scrambled egg is SO hard you can cut it with knife !! so not nice to eat at all. We know that it's a ' free breakfast', but surely it needs re-thinking for all us visitors to your wonderful city and beyond. Lets hope by next year when we return you would have re-thought your breakfast menu.

Arrived at 1am and was checking in and went to our room which was great on 3rd floor, not much to see out the window but that didn't bother me at all.
Large Rooms with comfortable beds, great nights sleep and was really quiet. The staff at the hotel let a friend in to decorate our room for our arrival which was a nice surprise for us.
Breakfast was also lovely although there was not a lot of selection there was no sausages or bacon on offer when we arrived but they may have came out later on once we had went and sat down.

Staff were very professional and helpful at all times. The cooked breakfast hot selection is limited to two items only, sausages and scrambled egg which is poor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Madkendo Perfect overnight stay
Staff brilliant..Helpful, efficient on the ball.
Sorted out loyalty card number and points total without asking.
Breakfast slowly getting their, still room for improvement. Dreadful tables, small and unimaginative as is decor
Front seating area still needs looking at as does bar..
It is always difficult to get a room so that must say a lot about people wanting to stay there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TJW1 Acceptable stay
Express hotel okay, but no air conditioning in the room and the breakfast was bland with a limited choice of cooked food. Car parking at a premium, but otherwise all was acceptable for a one night stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Daryl M Okay, but not particularly good value for the money
I have stayed in this hotel several times. It is overpriced considering what they are offering.
The rooms are very Spartan. They don't have any upgraded rooms, even if you are entitled to one.
The rooms are not very clean. The upholstery on the sofa and chair are stained. The carpets are not very clean.
There is insufficient ventilation, leading to the rooms being stuffy.
There is no air conditioning. If you leave the window open at night, be prepared to get woken up early by the seagulls.
The breakfast is not very good. The eggs are particularly unappetizing.
The WIFI is free, but in the evenings, it's so congested that it doesn't work very well.
This hotel is not one of the better holiday inn express properties. I stay there only because of the location. There are lots of good restaurants and bars within a short walk.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PJ54 Always a pleasant stay.
We always use this hotel when staying in Aberdeen. We usually stay at a weekend as we know all the hotels are more expensive during the week, but had no choice this time. We cannot fault this hotel on anything. From the minute we arrived we experienced no problems - speedy check-in/check-out; friendly staff

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by caithness girl Clean and bright room, excellent service
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay with my three adult children. Our only little complaint is that the bed settee was not the most comfortable and the breakfast scrambled egg and sausage not very nice, my Son wished there had been bacon too. But otherwise excellent variety or cereals, juices, croissants etc. Overall though, highly recommended and I would stay again.. Thank you

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rosstofarian Booked for location
Booked because it was close to my meeting venue the following morning.
All was clean, staff were nice which are both critical.
My gripes are:
WIFI was rubbish, kept dropping out which is no good for working
Price was high - guess this is just Aberdeen being expensive.
"Ironing Room" is a terrible idea. One little box room, miniature ironing board and an iron that you can't easily fill up with water.
Just put an iron in each room, most other hotels seem to manage it.

The street outside the hotel is very noisy overnight so try to get a room at the rear.
Parking is EXTREMELY limited.
Despite these negatives, the staff were very friendly and helpful
