The Aberdeen Altens Hotel, Aberdeen
Good Service, 24 hour room service, free wifi, nice and clean rooms and at very safe location.
Sohail, us5 night business trip
The Aberdeen Altens Hotel, Aberdeen
The hotel is located in an industrial area with only a Burger King around and about 10 minute drive from the city. There is a Tesco and Lidel about a five minute drive away. No washing machines in the hotel. They will send out your laundry but the turn around time is several days so that may be an issue if you need something washed right away. The gym is good ( treadmills, Erg and weights), breakfast is decent ( limited choices if you wish to eat healthy). The room was large enough for two adults and two teenagers. The carpet was worn out and stained. It does need replacing. The hotel itself was quiet.
