Really good hotel - great location and unbelievably quiet despite being in the city centre. Very well appointed and excellent value with a great breakfast included as part of the rate. You'll struggle to better this in Aberdeen city centre.

Excellent location in Aberdeen city centre. Ideal

Excellent location in Aberdeen city centre. Ideal for business trip and/or for easy access to pubs and restaurants. Hotel itself is,spotlessly clean and staff are helpful. Only issue is that the website stated "parking available" - which was only for about 8 cars on a first come, first served basis. There is free overnight parking in the public car park at Chapell St. But only until 8am, so expect to have to finish your breakfast in time to either leave before 8am or else walk down the street to put money in the meters...

Pros: Nice and clean, excellent staff. Hot food in the morning was a surprise as we thought that it would be strictly cold continental breakfast only.
Location: Close to the city centre shops which has 4/5 shopping malls.
We loved it so much that we stayed a 2nd night. Hotel lovely in every way. Lovely location not too near to the city centre so traffic noise was non existent. LOVED IT

Ideal for city centre events,theatre and shopping

Pros: It's centrality, yet off the main thoroughfare (Union Street to those who don't know the city
Location: Main shopping malls within 1/2 mile or take a short bus ride for 3 stops once you have parked the car. Music Hall closed but handy when it re-opens
We have used this hotel on numerous occasions and have always found the location ideal for attending various concerts etc. Staff are always,without exception, pleasant and helpful. Breakfast staff are always checking that food is plentiful.

Everything was good except the car parking situation - a hit or a miss finding a vacant bay!

Pros: my bed was very comfortable
Cons: sofa bed was not very comfortable. You could feel the metal bars from the frame when you were in bed
Location: Union Centre was very good. We didn't do much as only a stopover.
We only stayed 1 night as stopping off as part of our trip. We found everything to be very good, found it easy, very central for town centre, comfortable, breakfast was fine,
