I arrived at the hotel to find that in error I had booked for the following week. Not to worry, Valeri and Juri were on the job. They immediately cancelled my initial reservations for two rooms and put me in a two-bedroom suite at a savings of about $50! The bedrooms were very comfortable and we all slept well. Juri... More

Spent a night in Aberdeen to go to theatre etc. Apartment was great. Had great sleep...... so quiet considering we were on main road. Clean, everything you needed, lots of room. Bit of a hike up to top floor but we're fit enough! We didn't use kitchen but had fine continental breakfast downstairs in Garden Room. Basic but adequate. There... More

This visit we opted for a suite on a lower floor and were allocated one on ground floor. Excellent if any member of the party has mobility issues as suite is at street level and it is only one flight down to breakfast room. The suite has everything you need for your stay and continental breakfast is included in the... More

We stayed here with our daughter, son-in-law, their young son and our youngest son. Most of us were in a three bedroom apartment and our son had an executive one bedroom place. The staff were excellent, warm and friendly, concierge always available, carrying bags, showing us around and anything we neded was wiftly available. The apartments were spotlessly clean, warm,...

Stayed two nights for business. Staff very friendly, location super. Had nice double bedroom, kitchen, and living room. Perfect for business trip. Only thing I could say is it was a little cold, but then again, it is January in Aberdeen.

An apartment for the price of a single room anywhere else in Aberdeen, we were made very welcome on our arrival and when I had finished signing in the concierge had already gathered our luggage to escort us to our accommodation. Clean, tidy and very spacious, a heated floor in the bathroom, good tv, comfy sofa, table and chairs, free... More

Great apartment - one bed flat. Very Clean and cosy. Well maintained. Parking and great location for the city and a night out. Helpful staff as key didn't work. Would definitely use again and would think of for a business trip also. Excellent!

Clean and Comfortable basic accommodation with all you need to be home from home. Not so sure of the upgrade to a superior room though, for instance the noise outside from traffic the very noticeable and you here people coming and going from other apartments within at all hours of the night. The TV was small and outdated as it... More

Booked only a week before. A fine location and a lovely suite. Breakfast was continental but beautifully fresh with a good choice. Staff could not have. Been more helpful. Parking good and only a short walk to Union Street .
