Couldn't have been happier! Big comfy bed, plasma telly with freeview and all radio channels, a huge and might I add extremely clean shower, bathroom spotless Infact! Can't emphasise just how clean the rooms and hotel in generous was! The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help us. The hotel is also in the heart of the city centre and a stones throw from the harbour when you can see all the beautiful big oil ships leaving for and returning from the North Sea. Will definitely be staying here again.

Stayed just the one night, mostly excellent for less than £50 discounted advance rate in the centre of Aberdeen.

A few niggles; the room was very small, there was only 1 chair, a small plastic one but there wasn't room for much more, I'm not wild about these plastic ship-style bathrooms, but it was more than adequate. It was quite noisy at night with the window open (it seemed stuffy with it closed, there may have been air con but we like an open window) being on a busy road and adjacent to the harbour, but slept fine all the same.

Probably most frustrating was not having any electric sockets beside the bed, just 2 and neither were quite within reach.

Breakfast was nice, though not a massive selection - it was a shame more was not made of the views in the dining area. Menu for other food was fairly minimal.

Bed sliding away from headboard still not resolved we noticed.

Overall though, friendly and helpful, clean, good location, I'd go back.

Dear Valued Guest,
Thank you for your review.
Just a little note on the electric sockets. This is a health & safety regulation not to have them next to the bed or in the bathroom - personally I find it inconvenient too when I am travelling around the UK and staying in different hotels, however it is just something we have to accept as it is purely for our safety.
I am glad you had a good stay with us and we very much look forward to welcome you back to Ibis Aberdeen Centre.
Kind Regards,
Dora S.

Good value hotel with pleasant staff
We stayed at this hotel for two nights and even though we had a few issues we had a very enjoyable stay. The location is excellent being very central and close to both the train and bus stations and just off Union Street. The staff were incredibly helpful and nothing was too much bother for them offering us assistance with a number of issues we had during our stay in Aberdeen.

The room was basic but with everything required for a good stay including tea and coffee making facilities, a little built in sofa, a decent shower and a comfortable bed. There were however two issues which caused concern, firstly the sink would not drain in our room, which was most unpleasant and impractical. We informed reception and they immediately arranged for us to change rooms which we did with minimum fuss. Then during our first night we kept being disturbed with a loud banging noise which we could not figure out initially, but when showering in the morning realised it was likely caused by the banging of the shower doors in the 'pod' bathrooms which vibrated through the building causing us to have a sleepless night. Our second night, we slept much better as the noise was less frequent than the first night.

We had a very enjoyable breakfast with a great selection including very tasty sausages, with a relaxing atmosphere we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast both mornings. Again the staff were friendly and keen to offer assistance when we required a high chair for the little one. We also made use of the multi-storey car park next to the hotel at a discounted rate for hotel guests which was handy in the city centre. All in all an enjoyable stay in a friendly hotel.
