Good location & very central, across the road from Tiger Tiger & VUE Cinema.

Was dreading the noise with it being a Saturday night but am glad to say the Seagull’s made more noise through the night, there just don't seem to sleep....

Room was modern, new beds which were nice with Pod like shower.

Few hairs in the bathroom that could of done with cleaning.

What spoilt it for me was the front desk staff, wasn't very friendly at all.

There is a sign outside the hotel suggesting FREE late check out on request. Considering the hotel seemed quiet and I am a A-Club Platinum member this was refused.

All in all it's all about the location and this hotel had it....

Very handy location for city centre, comfortable and functional room with and interesting pod-like bathroom. Food at the restaurant okay, onothing exciting but price was fine. Plenty to choose from around the hotel if you fancy something different.
Staff were brilliant, always helpful and it was obvious that they actually seemed to enjoy their job and took it seriously
Will be back

Room Tip: I had a view of the harbour which was interesting!

We had a fantastic time in Aberdeen! The hotel was perfectly situated close to the bus station, the room was very clean and quiet with a great view of the harbour, and we could leave our luggage there after checking out so we could spend the whole day at the Maritime Museum just over the road which was well worth the visit. All in all a perfect stay!

Overall, a really good experience. A couple of negatives, but nothing that would detract from what I would describe as a really pleasant stay and a good weekend overall.

The positives: A decent room, good check in, friendly and courteous staff.

The negatives: Disappointed with poor wifi, lack of towels in room and car alarm (or some form of alarm that went off outside the hotel at 06:15 on sat morning when suffering from the night before. I can't really be so harsh as to blame this directly on the hotel though, even though a room away from the noise would have been good.

Room Tip: Don't get a room backing on to Tiger Tiger - not for light sleepers on that side of the hotel.

Dear Valued Guest,
Thanks for your review. I am glad you had a good stay with us.
Normally the double glassing isolates all the noise from outside, so please accept my sincere apology it was not the case this time.
See you on your next trip hopefully!

Aberdeen for years has been afflicted with low standard, expensive hotel accommodation staffed with surly unpleasant staff. In the past two or three years this has started to change with new hotels being built and others nearly complete. Bed and breakfast accommodation is generally dire so a budget option is very welcome.

I booked the Ibis for a Friday night in March online with Agoda and was amazed at the price of £43. For Aberdeen this was nothing short of miraculous. Undoubtedly this rate will increase greatly during the week but still, it is pretty good.

The hotel is situated on Shiprow near to the docks, a 5 minute walk from the railway station. Taxis in Aberdeen are extortionately expensive so head right out of the station and then left into Shiprow after about 300 yards.

The hotel is in a lovely old Aberdeen area with a maritime museum across the road. The hotel itself though is modern and blends in well with the old buildings in the area. In the same building is a 24 hour gym owned by a separate company and daily memberships are available at a competitive price.

I was greeted by friendly efficient staff and the formalities were dealt with speedily. Thankfully the staff were not Scottish as I find the locals to be unfriendly and unwelcoming to outsiders.

The room was a standard Ibis-type with en-suite, TV and plentiful storage space. The only reason I am giving this hotel 4 instead of 5 stars is the TV and internet system. No wifi and the television settings lead you to believe you have to use the inhouse movie channel and inhouse internet. Yes, you have to use the inhouse internet on the TV screen and a keyboard is provided for this. However, press the "TV" button on you remote control and the TV channels are free. Sadly, the choice isn't very good but it is adequate. I find penny pinching like this by big hotel chains akin to charging for soap ...... petty.

There is a 24 hour restaurant along with a bar that closes around midnight. I didn't eat there so can't comment on the food. I left around 5.30 in the morning and I understand there is a buffet continental style breakfast available from 04.00 which is excellent forethought for those oil workers with an early check-in.

All in all I will certainly stay at the Ibis again due to the clean and reasonably priced accommodation, efficient staff and the central location with a gym next door. I wish there were more like it in Aberdeen.
