Positive Reviews

Right in the heart of Aberdeen

Travellers rave about the strategic, central location of the property. They like the close proximity of the train station, historic attractions, and the many dining options and cafes. Its central location is also very handy for those who are fond of shopping and clubbing, as shopping centres and pubs can be reached within short walking distance.

Luxurious and fully equipped accommodations

All of the accommodations are reportedly fully furnished, modern, and luxurious. Visitors mention that the units are clean, spacious, and well-equipped with up-to-date facilities and amenities. They particularly appreciate that the kitchen area has a complete set of kitchenware, while the living rooms are equipped with Smart TVs.

Excellent bathrooms

One of the highlights of the guests’ stays is the large, walk-in shower in the bathroom. The huge rain shower gives them a special, relaxing bath – perfect after a long day of touring Aberdeen. Moreover, they appreciate that the bathrooms have underfloor heating.

Negative Reviews

Noise issues

Guests mention that the soundproofing of the rooms is inadequate. It is normal for guests to hear conversations, footsteps, and movements of other people from the neighbouring units, the corridor, and the surrounding streets. Those who stay in rooms near the adjacent nightclub, and in rooms facing the street, usually experience sleepless nights. This is particularly problematic for guests who are light sleepers.

No on-site parking

Since the property does not have on-site parking facilities, visitors arriving with cars have experienced difficulties. Guests need to park their vehicles in an area a few meters from the apartments, and have to follow a first come, first serve policy. Additionally, parking there comes with a fee.
