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... More

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... More

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.

My minimum requirements are parking (because of mobility issues) and gud if I can get WIFI and brekky. Wifi was fine - parking difficult at best - this is a reasonably large property and there is only about 8-10 places.

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... More

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... More

This Holiday Inn Express is of a very high standard. The rooms are clean and very well appointed, with a great internet connection. There was a lamp not working in may room and the staff ensured it was fixed by my second night (which shows me that the service is really good and works). My only reason for a 4/5... More

My husband and I like to stay in small B&Bs and guest houses when traveling, but sometimes one wants the predictability and efficiency of a chain hotel.

We booked this hotel on the basis of three "frees": internet, parking and breakfast. There are, in fact, very few parking spaces. When we could not find one, we were directed to paid parking down the street. When we balked, a chain was taken down to allow access to a spot at the back. At the desk the refrain is... More

Thanks for your comments lasbris We're glad you enjoyed your stay despite the problem surrounding car parking. Unfortunately, there are literally thousands of 3rd party booking sites out on the internet over which we have no direct control. It is almost always these that provide inaccurate or incomplete information about our parking facilities. Whilst we do indeed have free parking... More
