Great location right in the heart of the city, very clean, pleasant staff, nice new refurb and one of the most comfortable beds ever. The breakfast was tasty and generous. The only downside was that there was no double glazing which meant you could hear the noise from the street at night time. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation...

Firstly, this hotel seems to get all its bad reviews from complaints about afternoon tea - keep the comments separate from the restaurant park and the hotel itself. Anyhow, my wife and I checked in fine, went to our room which was bright, clean and well furnished - the bed was lovely and comfy with the linen feeling like the...

Just had a great couple of days at the funky Carmelite Hotel. Staff very pleasant and helpful and the hotel itself is the funkiest place I've ever stayed in. Food was also very good and the location is central for the city centre. Will definitely be back

I can't believe how good this hotel was for the price. Modern contemporary rooms. Very clean, Total bargain and friendly staff. Great location just off Union St. This is one of the best hotels in Aberdeen I have stayed in. I will be trying to book this hotel for my next trip to Aberdeen.

Stayed at the Carmelite for the first time on a business trip. The hotel is nicely decorated, modern, comfortable and in a central location, very handy for getting about. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. My room was very comfortable with everything I needed. The dinner menu had a good choice and the food was fresh and very tasty....

Really lovely and unusual hotel, very clean, good location, food was nice and the suite was brilliant, even down to the toy helicopter and sweets in the room (Japanese suite). Breakfast was very filling and delicious. All staff were very helpful and accommodating.

Recently booked private dining for my parents joint birthday surprise. We had family travelling who stayed over as well. We couldn't fault the service from the moment we arrived to set up until we left.

Aug 1st 2015 at the Carmelite hotel, didn't know what to expect, but we enjoyed it. Cocktails in the evening were great. It was very busy with what looked like a themed hen night. At first I thought it was an s&m theme but it turned out to be Alice in wonderland. We didn't eat here but we did stay...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Carmelite is neatly positioned in the centre of Aberdeen's Merchant Quarter, which is adjacent to the transport hub of rail, bus, coach stations and harbour. The Merchant Quarter is the "grown up" area of the city, full of independent bars and restaurants, and surrounded by the city's 5 under-cover retail shopping centres. An historical Grade B listed building dating back to mid 1800's, Carmelite has undergone major refurbishment program over recent years, introducing a boutique environment on the ground floor of Carmelite Bar & Grill, whilst the 50 bedrooms offer a mix of "Designer" Suites and rooms on the 1st floor, "Dapper" rooms refurbished end of 2012, on the 2nd floor and comfortable standard rooms on the 3rd floor. These enable attractive rates to suit all budgets. Aberdeen is a commercial city, with limited accommodation mid-week, however weekends offer some fantastic deals making an alternative visitor experience very affordable. The 6 Suites are all different, and very quirky - from round beds in turrets, and gigantic sleigh beds, all designer rooms have cast iron baths, monsoon showers. The "Dapper" rooms have un-cluttered designs with a mix of large monsoon shower rooms, double ended steel baths (some designed with 'no taps'), and black-out window blinds. All the bespoke furniture in these rooms were made by A social Enterprise Company in Dundee, called Dovetail. The 3rd floor standard rooms, although not yet refurbished, offer clean, comfortable accommodation, still with all the usual amenities. All rooms have luxury beds made locally by Social Enterprise Aberdeen Company called Glencraft. Designer "Anatomicals" or "Keiji" bath products, 32/40" LED Samsung Freeview TVs, as well as clocks, iPhone docking stations, tea/coffee making facilities, and most rooms with iron and ironing boards. A room service menu is available during restaurant times.The ground floor also is a boutique environment, quirky with a large open plan lounge and dining area, with informal comfy sofas, a Baby Grand Piano playing at weekends, and a dining 4 Poster Bed. The comprehensive bar menu offers superb cocktails, 12 champagnes, and extensive wine and drinks as well as a bar nibbles food options.
