Great location on Chapel street so close to union street and all of the city centre. The hotel is brightly lit and easy to find. As all the 10 parking spaces were taken we parked in the council car park at the end of the street free until 1pm on a Sunday. The rooms were basic but clean and had...

We had no complaints about the cleanliness of the room but it was absolutely sweltering hot and the window would only open a few inches. There was no fan. Also, the room was above a generator of some sort and it was pretty noisy. On arrival the staff were unhelpful. The information was on the basis that one had to...

Thanks for your review Pat T We are planning to install air conditioning when the hotel undergoes a refurbishment in the not too distant future. This will certainly solve the problem you experienced with the heat. I'm not sure exactly what caused the noise you experienced as we don't have any generators but I will nonehteless ask our maintenance engineer...

This hotel is conveniently located on a street next to Union Street which made going out in the evening very easy. The room was very comfy and the staff were helpful. There was a small selection to choose from at breakfast. There is also a 24 hour bakery right across the road from the hotel which can come in handy.

Thanks for your review SDDarwin Parking is indeed very limited at the hotel but we are lucky to have a large multi-storey facility just 100 yards up the road. As you may have noticed, our 2 accessible parking spaces are kept locked and only available on request. There are occasions from time to time when guests genuinely need them but...

Reviewed 12 August 2014

Considering the price of hotels in Aberdeen this is a decent basic hotel. Its clean the staff are nice enough and its one of the cheaper places to book. I recommend booking in advance as hotel rooms book up fast if alot of oil workers stranded are in town due to bad flying conditions.

Holiday Inn Express, Aberdeen is nicely located close to the centre of Aberdeen. The lobby and reception are staffed by well turned out courteous staff but ultimately the hotel feels like what it is - budget. The rooms are clean (though the carpet in mine had seen better days) with no frills, only complaint being the wafer thin walls meaning...

This Holiday Inn Express is of a very high standard. The rooms are clean and very well appointed, with a great internet connection.
