Stayed here for 2 nights whilst delivering training in the in-house meeting room. Normally stay at the otter Hotel at the AECC so this was the first time here. Rooms are everything expected from HIex and I have to say very clean. Walk in shower no bath but that's fine with me. After reading another review I made sure I...

Nice clean central hotel. Staff were really friendly. Quite at night.. Could not get into the carpark at the hotel, but it was not expensive to park the car at multi story car park just down the street. Great hotel for a night out. 10/10

The hotel is situated just off the main Union Street. Check in was swift with a really helpful receptionist. There is no restaurant onsite but there are plenty within easy walking distance. The room was typical fair. Clean and well presented. Free wifi too. Breakfast was fine and checkout was equally pleasant. I would book again.

Another City, another HI Express. As usual, immaculate room, comfy bed, nice shower, fast free (and hassle-free to log in) wi-fi, and a great all-you-need breakfast too. This is a City Centre location, so parking is a pain. If you're very lucky, you might get one of the 10 spaces in their own car park, but more than likely, you...

Do not book a front of hotel room, couldn't get slept all night due to the noise of people out and about and going to the bakers right across the road, could hear everything outside. Terrible.good location buts that's about it.

ExpressAberdeen, General Manager at Holiday Inn Express Aberdeen City Centre, responded to this review

Many thanks for your feedback Angela D, apologies that you found it a little noisy. Our location in the heart of the city is, without doubt, one of the hotel's greatest assets. Unfortunately though, this does go hand in hand with the fact that the streets can become rather lively, particularly at weekends. The installation of sound-proof triple glazing is...

It was my second visit to Aberdeen. I choose the hotel mostly of it's location, but did not regret. There were only few things that could be better - first the shower room has no heating and it was cold, only in the bedroom there is one radiator, second no fridge in the room, which would be good, just mention,...

Many thanks for your feedback ddjurova, glad you enjoyed your stay. We're hopeful that a major refurbishment will take place soon which will hopefully resolve the lack of heating in the bathrooms. Usually this is not a problem as the heat from the bedroom is enough although, on this occasion, it sounds like the heater may not be operating correctly....

We chose this hotel as we were going to the theatre and dining at a local restaurant so it was convenient. Check in was a long drawn out process because although there were two receptionists on the desk they were checking in a slightly awkward party of twelve women as I entered. Neither of the receptionists acknowledged anyone else at...

Thanks very much for your feedback kateroo1970, it's very much appreciated. Apologies for the delay at check-in, unfortunately this does happen from time to time when larger groups arrive together. Regardless of this, the staff should indeed have acknowledged waiting customers and I will remind them of this immediately. You are absolutely correct when you say that many guests tend...
