You get what you pay for. This time, I think it fair to say we got a little bit more. The location is bang in the centre of town and the room was clean. The service was good and prompt. All told, a good experience.

Most of the centre of Aberdeen is within a short walk from the hotel. Our room was clean, modern and surprisingly spacious for a budget hotel. The included breakfast, although rather bland, was more than adequate. As others have mentioned, the hotel car park is very small and the nearby multi-story park can be relatively costly depending on the time...

Easy and fast check in, and friendly receptionist. The room was large, and had separate toilet. The continental breakfast was simple. Hotel had bar in the lobby, and two elevators. Hotel was located in a quiet area, and only a short walking distance to shopping and restaurants.

Great Location for a night out/ shopping trip to Aberdeen, good sized clean rooms great price but breakfast disappointed us. The cooked items were cold and the orange juice tasted like weak flavoured water.

The Holiday inn Express in Chapel St. is in an xxcellent location in Aberdeen city centre. The location is ideal for those doing business in the city centre and/or those who want to be in walking distance to pubs and restaurants.
