              Getting there.

              Aberdeen Airport is located within seven miles away, so you should follow the A92 Dundee/Perth Road until you reach a roundabout. Take the B9119 exit and head for the City Centre: Union Terrace is located half way down the main thoroughfare.

              By car from the A90, follow signs for the City Center and Union Street. Half way down the main thoroughfare, turn left onto Union Terrace; The Caledonian Hotel is on the left after approximately 100 yards.

              Getting around.

              Aberdeen Rail Station is adjacent to the hotel.

              Private parking is possible for the guests with cars.

                Excellent location for shops and nightlife, staff were all friendly and helpful, i would definitely stay again.Cheers, Graham

              • Couple
                9.6

                Everything, the room was lovely and the staff very friendly and helpfull.

                Only minor problem was no black out curtains so the sun got us up at about 5am.

              • Older travelers
                7.0

                modern and comfortable. great bathroom and shower

                limited parking which was full and car park padlocked when we arrived, we were told to park in the nearby open, public and chargeable car park which we were not keen to do as it required us to return every 2 hours to renew the parking ticket. We were also concerned about potential damage to our can as it was a Saturday night in the city centre. Our room was advertised as a delux double and although modern and clean was tiny! it was also right above the function suite and we were kept awake till 2 in the morning by the wedding disco.

              • Single
                9.2

                Proximity to city centre.

                The early morning fire alarm which resulted in all guests having to leave their rooms and go to street. No explanation or apology offer for this.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                Very handy for visiting the city centre

                Unacceptable noise level from revellers outside the hotel. The room was not very big and there was no fridge in the room

              • Older travelers
                6.2

                The hotel was clean and the staff were very helpfull. I booked a standard room but was upgraded.

                The cost of the breakfast! First day, we went to BHS and got 5 items for 99p. The hotel was charging £14 each! Although upgraded from a standard room, the room was very small with a blacked out window. This due to having a view of a flat roof between walls so to speak. The room was very warm and we could barely open the side window 5 inches. This then allowed the noise of a generator situated on the room directly outside our window to interupt our sleep.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                The service, staff are very attentive. Hotel is clean.

                Had an executive room but were facing main street, very noisey. Lamps either side of bed were very annoying, shades too big.

                Very well situated for the shops or the Theatre.

                Room far too hot, no way of turning the heating down. Very noisy in the early hours of the morning and very creeky boards up above our room. Never slept a wink all night because of the noise and the heat. Didn't complain because we hoped the noisy people would be just a one off as this was not a problem the last time we stayed here. Room was beautiful and clean though.

                Ideal location for a shopping trip and we had our lunch there and it was first class!

                Staff helpful and freindly. Hotel is in a great location, only 5 minutes walk from the train station. We were given a free upgrade to a suite on arrival which was lovely. Breakfast selection was good and everything was fresh.

                Thought perhaps the breakfast was ever so slightly overpriced.

                Good, clean, centrally located hotel

                Fridge and safe did not work and wasn't repaired despite asking twice!

                It was a bed for the night, nothing more. No atmosphere, nothing that would make me want to ue the hotel again unless I had to.

                The was no free WiFi, which is standard in most hotels now.

                The situation, near to shops and resturants but quiet at night.

                Lack of parking facilities.

                A spacious and comfortable room, free wifi and good room service meant that I was able to work and enjoy dinner in comfort
