“Two day stay at the Aberdeen City Centre Hotel in April”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Off the beaten track but comfortable and convenient place to stay in the city centre. Accommodation is up to date and well fitted out although space is a little at a premium. Staff are very friendly and responsive and nothing is too much trouble. Good value for money and a better experience of accommodation in Aberdeen than I was warned to expect.

We stayed here for two nights in one of the family apartments. Staff was very helpful. Parking was tough to find, but once we found it were fine. it is steep, though. Apartment was a two-bedroom with a kitchen/seating area. Breakfast was provided in the room and was nice. Located just in the great downtown walking area. Great location, but can be noisy due to all of the nightlife in the area. We were so exhausted from all of the walking around and castle-hopping both nights, though, that it didn't keep us up. Great price. Overall, we would return!

Took us ages to find this place it's very hard to find and parking is virtually non existent and when do find car park it fits 4 cars on a steap incline directly off a dual carriageway so a bit dangerous..... the apartment we got was tiny literally no space in living area to swing a cat and only a continental breakfast so we were glad to only stay one night and will NOT be back

We were booked in for four nights, but after 30 minutes we decided we couldn't stay even one night. The room was below street level and it was tiny, like a cell, with a 2ft square window looking onto a corrugated tin roof, and consequently very dim. The room was freezing, and we could not get the heating unit to work. It was an air conditioning unit which, even after asking the receptionist to show us how it worked, still only blew out cold air. It made a fearful racket and I would not have been able to sleep with the noise. There was only a small recess for hanging clothes and a couple of hangers, and the two tiny three-drawer knee-high units for all our clothes were very coggly and the drawers would not open. One of the two chairs was broken. The bathroom stank with damp and was very spartanly equipped. The back door to the car park was open to all, with no locks or security. The car park, once you were able to find the access to it, was on a steep hill, off a very fast main road. It had four very tight spaces, not easy to reverse into or out of on a steep hill. Access was via a busy and fast dual-carriageway road, with a dumper truck blocking visibility at the entrance. The breakfast area was as dim and dark as the bedroom with black stone benches to sit on and stone tables to eat off. The only good thing about this hotel was that we were not charged, thanks to Booking.com's intervention, otherwise we would have had to pay a night, even though we did not stay. We went for a meal that night quite near this hotel. Next door, or rather above the bedrooms was a busy vodka bar, and opposite what looked like a night club. Apart from the noise from inside the bar, there were so many people hanging around outside, with drinks in hand and smoking. You would have had to run the gauntlet of that lot to get in the hotel's front door.

Room Tip: Didn't see into any other rooms, but you would need to be a troglodyte to stay here.

Stayed here for one Friday night, arriving just after 11pm on the offchance there was a room available... the staff on duty were wonderfully helpful. The street entrance belies the quality of the hotel - my room was clean and fresh with everything I needed and the bathroom was amazing! The breakfast (included in the price) was a proper continental breakfast, with meat and cheese as well as the other usual options, and I appreciated the self-service set up as I could totally customise my breakfast. For an Aberdeen hotel the price was very reasonable and the location cannot be beaten if you are staying for a night out in town. Yes, there was noise from a nearby bar but I expected that...
As a bonus, there are the photos of 'Radar' in reception - what a fabulous way to honour what was one of my favourite eateries.

Stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting family, rooms were superb, loved the jacuzzi bath. Great location for city centre bars and restaurants. You only have to go round the corner to find all the shops and shopping malls in Aberdeen city centre.

Thankfully my (£125!) stay here was just for one night. I couldn't have stayed any longer than that. My room was two levels below ground, about 2m x 2m in size, with a barred window that looked out onto a wall! I'm slightly claustrophobic, and this place didn't help.
The bathroom looks impressive from a distance, but once you enter it you find a cleanish bathroom with what I think may be washing up liquid for toiletries and taps and fittings that were close to falling off.
The bedroom area had a TV that was temperamental at best, and only enough reception to get channels 3,4 & 5! With bits of paper and tissues (to name just one element of the lack of cleaning) from a previous guest on the floor the cleaning standards were low. However the only positive - but an important one, was that the bedding was clean (though covered in holes) and the bed was really comfortable. Dueoto the lack of cleanliness I chose not to bother attempting the breakfast in the morning.
It's fair to say I will never stay here again, and would never recommend it.
