Just spent 4 weeks there and should go back for 3 more weeks soon. The staff are friendly, the rooms are spacious and there is a good selection for the breakfast and dinner. They is a great gym, swimming pool and sauna, massages and treatments are also available. My stay was very comfortable and I definitely recommend this hotel!

Although not a new hotel the Althens Thistle looks the part and is in generally good condition. Most importantly the hotel in general and the rooms in particular are clean. Spacious rooms with good facilities. Comfortable beds. Staff, although not all fluent in English, were smart, friendly and helpful. Restaurant food good quality but a bit on the expensive side...

Had a great 2 night stay at Thistle Altens Hotel, Aberdeen. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was excellent, we were upgraded to an executive room. Bar was nice and prices were quite good for a hotel. Will definately be back.

We recently stayed here for 2 nights whilst on a birthday shopping trip. The rooms were very comfortable, spotlessly clean and in a recently refurbished condition. We had several meals in the restaurant where the quality of meals and service was very high. The leisure club was clean, modern and well equipped. We would recommend this hotel without any reservations.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights recently and had a wonderful time. Staff very friendly and helpful.. Room very comfortable and clean. The icing on the cake was Partick Thistle staying the night.. Alas they got beaten by Aberdeen!

Room was fine and big, all food was lovely. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Great having pool too but shame jacuzzis weren't working. Room was very hot with no way of controlling the temperature.
