While some might think these little apartels are cramped, as a solo traveler I thought it was perfect for one person. Great location, comfortable furnishings, solid wifi, close to grocery stores and cafes. The staff made this stay as good as it was. They were accommodating and considerate before I even arrived - I added a note requesting a room...

We stayed here for a week and it was absolutely lovely. The breakfast had plenty of options and the staff were so friendly. The kitchen had all needed appliances and even fresh milk in the fridge. The laundry facilities on site were an added bonus.

I've been spending a lot of time at these apartments over the last 18 months but business moves on and it's time to share the love. This place is absolutely fantastic, I can't find a single thing to fault it. Staying in an apartment when away on business is much more comfortable and relaxing than staying at some anonymous hotel....

Have been many times, never dissapoints. Great location fairly central but never noisy. Rooms on the ground floor are the best, but understandably more expensive. Top floor rooms even quieter, but a fair amount of steps up! Our personal preference is the first floor (best of both worlds) flat 10 is right on end. BIG plus is the ever present...

We had a lovely one bedroom apartment at Skene House for a couple of nights. The classic building blends into the formal Aberdeen granite look, but, inside, the apartment was very spacious, well decorated, comfortable and cosy. The sitting area was particularly welcoming with colourful lounges and a bay window. There was a well appointed separate kitchen. Everything worked. Staff...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Skene House Whitehall is the best of both worlds - it's a city centre location with a residential feel. Its only 7 minutes walk to the top end of Union Street, fewer than that to the West End boutiques of Rose and Thistle Street, yet benefits from a more relaxed atmosphere due to its private gardens and proximity to the neighbourhood of Rosemount where delicatessens, friendly pubs, cafes and Sainsbury's are within 5 minutes walk. Whitehall's 49, studio and 1-3 bedroom apartments offer business and leisure travelers a range of eclectic interiors providing a homely feel for short or long stays. ... more   less
