Skene House Holburn's 35, 1 to 3 bedroom individually designed HotelSuites are in an enviable location - where the West End meets the city centre. Across the road you'll fine one of our Partner Gyms; a stroll up a cobbled lane and you'll feel the buzz of Union Street's restaurants, bars and coffee shops; around the corner you'll find Rose and Thistle Streets' stylish boutiques and cafes. The professional business district, which flanks Rubislaw and Queen's Terrace Gardens, are on the doorstep.

Thank you for your enquiry. In general, we only accept dogs as we ask that animals are not left unattended in our apartments. However, depending on length of stay we have accepted cats on occasion in the past. I hope this answers your questions but please let me know if you would like any further information about this.

"I don't know what other rooms were like, but we had asked for accommodations for a family of 3 and we got a huge suite"
"No Lift, 65 Narrow stairs to top floor."
"top floors are definitely quiet"
"Lots of stairs if you get a room up high."
"Lot's of different town house apartments in the complex - perhaps a higher floor to avoid the street noise?"
US$80 - US$125 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
