Also known as the "Granite City", Aberdeen is situated on the North Sea coast of Scotland. Famed for being the oil capital of Europe, the city has long been a popular destination among tourists wishing to experience Scotland's glorious architecture and rich history. Aberdeen is located close to the Highlands and is known for its beautiful gardens, lush parks, and seasonal floral displays.
Accommodations in Aberdeen tend to be pricey, but there are several bed-and-breakfasts and guest houses offering reasonable rates. Guest rooms are typically at their cheapest on the weekends, as local hotels are regularly booked by business clients and oil workers on weekdays. An affordable alternative during the summer season is to book one of the self-catering apartments offered through Robert Gordon University and the University of Aberdeen.
You'll find a wide variety of accommodations in Aberdeen, ranging from youth hostels in the city centre to sprawling victorian mansions on the edge of town. A good selection of hotels and bed-and-breakfasts can be found in the city centre, particularly around the railway station and along Bon Accord Street. There is also a wide selection of guest houses, which can be found on the south-west side of the railway station -- particularly along Springbank Terrace, which runs between South College Street and Willowbank Road.
Most of the hotels in Aberdeen carry a three- to four-star rating, but many of them have services and amenities comparable to five-star accommodations in other parts of the world. One such hotel is the Soprano St. Magnus Court Hotel, which is situated close to the railway station and features a restaurant, a wine bar, and modern, stylish guest rooms. For travellers seeking a "greener" experience, the countryside and coastline offer converted Victorian mansions and comfortable guest houses set on acres of lush, manicured gardens.
Although "cheap" is a relative term when it comes to Aberdeen accommodations, there are several mid-range hotel chains are represented throughout the city; they include the Holiday Inn Express Aberdeen-Chesapeake House, the Hilton Garden Inn Aberdeen, and the Residence Inn by Marriott Aberdeen at Ripken Stadium. Among the more modestly priced chain hotels in Aberdeen are The Days Inn Aberdeen, the Travelodge Hotel Aberdeen, and the Super 8 Aberdeen MD, all of which offer guest rooms for under $75 per night. For the student and backpacker crowd, the Aberdeen Youth Hostel - SYHA offers cheap private rooms, a shared kitchen, free Wifi, and meal plan options.
The Bauhaus Hotel, located in the city centre, is a boutique hotel offering large, contemporary guest rooms, 32-inch flat-screen TVs, and extensive amenities ad services. Closer to the beach and more classic in décor is the Hilton Treetops hotel, where visitors can enjoy spacious, comfortable rooms, an indoor pool, and a sauna. Malmaison Aberdeen, located on Queen's Road, is another attractive option for those seeking the ultimate in luxury. The hotel boasts eight different room styles, two private dining rooms, a whiskey snug, and a swanky brasserie.
I think Aberdeen is the most impressive of the Scottish cities with the granite buildings and stone streets. Beautiful and strangely haunting and well worth a day or two.
