Profile: Central Aberdeen

Profile: Central Aberdeen

Central Aberdeen is a lively center for shopping and nightlife, situated on the hillsides leading to Aberdeen's busy harbor. Union Street is the place to go for big brand stores and the nearby Union Square shopping center. Walk this grand high street of stone buildings to find Aberdeen's best restaurants and bars, where you can sample the local single-malt whiskies.

Aberdeen has a history dating back an astonishing 8,000 years, and has grown to be the North Sea's hub for oil and gas. The Aberdeen Maritime Museum, and nearby Tolbooth Museum, offer intriguing and interactive insights into its fascinating past.

    Chilly

    Radiator was not working in the room, and as the windows were wide open when I arrived it was chilly. They provided an oil filled radiator and this provided some comfort. Brief stay so did not use any other facilities.

    Complicated

    Overall OK, quiet, central location and good public transport access, good kitchen, washing machine... Too many doors needing keycard access, even from the lounge to the toilet. Shower room is weird, you get hit by the door if you try to get dried off/dressed outside of the shower.

    Un peu loin du centre-ville à pied, mais il s’agit d’un établissement très propre et sécuritaire. Tranquille en décembre.

    Très jolie place, la dame a l’accueil est une vraie perle, très gentille, l’endroit est propre et assez commode. Toutefois, ce n’est pas du tout près du centre-ville, il faut planifier ces déplacement en bus ou voiture. Il n’y a pas beaucoup de salle de bain par étage, mais règle général, j’ai eu un bon séjour en je suis satisfaite de mon service.
