About the property

A small but cosy, neat and fully equipped top floor flat in the centre of town!

Welcome to 62 Skene street!

A lovely, fully renovated, 3rd floor (no lift), 1bd flat in central Aberdeen, small but cosy, fully furnished & equipped, very close to the centre.

A managed flat for complete peace of mind in the centre of everything! The flat is also part of VisitScotland's Walkers Scheme while it is good to host up to 2 golfers with some equipment for one of the city's wonderful golf courses! PARKING PERMIT can bee provided COST-FREE upon request in advance!

If a studio or one-bedroom flat for short and slightly longer stays in central Aberdeen is what you look for, look no further!

Included in the price is, well, everything! Professional cleaning prior to arrival, insurance and 24-h emergency response, management, all taxes and fees! On top of that we make sure you have dispensable stuff such as rubbish bags, kitchen and wc papers covering a whole week and on top of that you should find complimentary bottled water and refreshments upon arrival! Other stored, dry food is also complimentary as this is a living apartment and we love providing for our guests! Fast internet, just a couple of DVDs and all appliances are there for you to use as well as additional electric heaters for the very cold days of the winter!

Situated minutes from everything central Aberdeen has to offer, this 3rd floor, 1-bed flat (please note: no elevator) is fully equipped with whatever you might need for your stay, ideal for one or two people (while a small child can sleep on the sofa for a couple of days). The flat is fully insured and professionally managed with 24-hours response available for complete peace of mind and a relaxed check-in and stay.

We look forward hosting you!

Well worth the climb!

  • 5 of 5

There is a climb of 62 steps to reach Alex's flat, up a musty and unswept staircase, but once inside there is nothing to complain about. The apartment is 3 roomed, with a fully equipped kitchen that doubles as a dining-lounge area. The full sized fridge is accompanied by a proper stove and clothes washer-dryer, with sufficient space for guests' supplies.

Internet connection is fast and reliable.

The bedroom is small but the bed very comfortable. With the window closed vehicle and/or late night reveler noises are tolerable for 70-year-olds, even over an Aberdeen weekend in August.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay in the city of granite (granodiorite actually), due in no small part to the excellence of our accommodation. This submission was written by Allan & Areta Thomas, two retired seasoned Australian travelers.

Great apartment in the heart of city

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very comfortable and cozy. Quite in the center and easy access to bus, shops, bakery etc. Central Railway station is 15 min walk. Main shopping area is less than 10 mins of walking distance. Apartment is well furnished. The manager is very cooperative. Famous restaurant is just across the street. Bar and pubs are round the corner.

In the heart of city yet peaceful and quite. Was the best stay.

Good location

  • 1 of 5

Small flat ok for a weekend good location. But. No wifi after calling the agent and messaging the owner there was a solution was offered when only a day was left of the holiday. The flat was not clean at all. I told both the owner and the agent this and they offered no solution they also told me it was cleaned the day before. There were towels in the washing machine and the dishwasher was still turned on and had dishes in it was not impressed

Owner's Response: Dear Cara, Thanks for the response and the comments-everything is very useful to us. As your stay took place some time ago, we are happy to say that we have now changed our cleaning service. It was expensive and insufficient. We are happy to offer a discounted rate next time. The flat has also now some additional furnishings, better arrangement and unlimited BT wifi internet. We are always keen on correcting any faults and constructive comments are always welcomed!

About Alex

Currently an emerging screenwriter with an extensive background in political and international studies, research and publications.

Alex purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Alex chose Aberdeen

A charming little 1-bed flat capable to host up to two people, possibly with a child if for a few days in the centre of things yet offering enough tranquility and privacy as it is a top (3rd) floor flat with views. This is a Visit Scotland accredited with 3 Stars property also part of Visit Scotland's Walkers Scheme but also capable of hosting a couple of golfers for the city's many and wonderful golf courses.

What makes this apartment unique

An insured, managed flat in the centre of town for complete peace of mind-amenities like a second tv in the bedroom, towels and linen and additional services via the manager (such as airport pick up if there's availability at special occasions and others). 5-10 mins walking to Union Street, a stone through away from Her Majesty's Theatre, pretty close to the train station, airport, port, including all major shipping and oil companies, golf course(s), shopping centres, a variety of restaurants and the main university campus.
