Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbo996 Great location for City centre shopping
The Hotel is in a very good spot for shopping in Union Street and adjoining streets. There you will find all the main stores and shops. The docks and sea is about 30 minutes walk, or you can take one of the buses to reach there.
There are many buses to be found in Union Street, which is 5 minutes walk from the Hotel.
If you bring your on car, The Holiday Inn Express hotel has it's own private car-park. Although this is car park has only 14 spaces.So parking is a bit hit and miss.
The staff are polite and friendly and the room was big and comfortable for a twin size. The beds were comfortable if you like to sleep on a firm mattress.
The room has good facilities and the bathroom en-suite was a good size, clean and tidy.
Breakfast was buffet style . All you could expect for a breakfast. Although with Holiday Inn, you do not get bacon with your cookerd breakfast, which to me was dissappointing as I really love bacon in my cooked breakfast.
However overall I thought the breakfast was good.
I would recommend this hotel to anybody visitng Aberdeen who wants a city centre location, for it's value.
I would definately stay there again if visiting Aberdeen.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by steinview Nice room and pleasant staff . Breakfast poor .
This hotel is a good example of why the express concept works so well. It is convenient, good value and the rooms are better than many more expensive hotels.
The breakfast was poor. Not as good as the last time I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express. The sausages were rubbish and the croissants were more like bread . No bacon ever arrived . Everything in a packet was ok ! How about some Aberdeen butteries for breakfast ?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ManxOnTour Good base for weekend break
We stayed here for three nights over the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of August.
The location is very good - 100m to the top of Union Street (the main street in Aberdeen) and there are pubs are restaurants nearby. The bus and railway stations are about 10-15 minutes walk away as are the main shopping centres.
We contacted the hotel in advance and requested a quiet room and were duly given a room at the back of the hotel. The room itself was standard Holiday Inn Express but perfectly adequate for a short break. The only slight negative was that it was a little warm in the room.
Breakfast is included in the rate and certainly fills you up for the day. Lots of choice and although it was a little congested on Sunday morning, we had no complaints.
Finally, a word about the staff. Everyone was very friendly. Requests and queries were politely dealt with and they are a credit to the hotel.
We obtained a very good rate - hotels in Aberdeen are not that cheap. If you are looking for a reasonably priced base to explore Aberdeen, we would have no hesitiation in recommending this hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by trojan noisy
Being a saturday night, and the hotel being very very warm , we really needed the window open for fresh air, this meant the nightclub noise from just up the street was made even worse, basically a very noisy hotel to stay in, once the nightclub revellers all went home, within an hour the street sweepers started, !!! at around 6 in the morning, I have stayed in many holiday inns over the years and this by far was my worst experience, wont use this one again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BBCB Reasonable hotel for the price
There are a lot of things going for this hotel, such as central location and not bad facilities. Breakfast was again reasonable and the service in general was good with pleasant and polite staff
On the downside was the noise but to be fair was expected from a city centre location

We stayed here as a family 2 adults and 2 children over the weekend - great location, not much parking but we did manage to get space as we arrived a few hours before check in and were able to leave car in the car park - great choice for breakfast, even though we were beside pubs and clubs we never heard any noise. We would stay here again

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PubPuppy Temperature issue solved by staff
Everything about the hotel was good except the advertised free on site parking consisted of so few spaces that all were taken early. Nearby public parking was expensive and confusing. Also, the room was small and inadequately ventilated with no air conditioning and a window with extreme opening restrictions. However, upon complaining to the staff, a fan was provided and the window opening restriction was unlocked, allowing the window to be completely opened, which made the room temperature satisfactory. Pubs and restaurants were within easy walking distance.
TIP - Aberdeen is a busy business center and is not very tourist friendly. I accidentally started to drive in the wrong direction to exit the public parking garage, and the parking lot attendant chewed me out. Aberdeen is a nightmare to drive in, particularly at rush hour on a Friday. I recommend taking a taxi.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rubytuesday Could'nt be better
We booked two rooms here and found both to be excellent . Friendly staff and very comfortable beds. A good selection at breakfast which was constantly replenished , most hotels don't include breakfast at this price, so this was a great bonus . I would recommend to anyone and will certainly stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lockey1963 Recurring false fire alarms
I experienced 5 false fire alarms within a five week period.
If they were smoking related I could understand why the alarms went off. One or two due to shower steam or the liberal use of a deodorant but not five (there may be more that I'm not aware of). Perhaps the type of detector needs to be reviewed ?
I also noticed that the cleaners were regularly propping open the emergency stairwell fire doors to increase the air flow in the main corridors.

The first room I was given smelt like a smoking room. Fortunately the desk staff were able to move me to clean room, though I’m surprised the cleaning staff didn’t notice the smell, it was defiantly a non-smoking room as well. Other than that, enjoyed the stay.
Hotel staff booked a taxi for me in the morning, and this turned up promptly. The desk staff were helpful, friendly and efficient, couldn’t ask for more from them.
