How to Find the Best Aberdeen Hotels with Venere

Aberdeen is one of the largest and most northerly cities in Scotland, and is sometimes referred to as "the Granite City" for its gray buildings. Although the ancient gray buildings of this windy city may paint a grim picture from the 19th century, Aberdeen is wealthy thanks to its vast oil reserves courtesy of the North Sea as well as a booming technology industry. Whenever the sun decides to shine in the north of Scotland, the granite buildings take on a sparkling quality which helps give the city a unique charm. Aberdeen offers everything that a modern tourist attraction should, including a mixture of historic and culture centers, as well as sandy beaches (albeit facing the North Sea), sprawling shopping streets, and an active nightlife. Finding your ideal hotel in Aberdeen could prove to be a stressful experience, especially if you have budget expectations. However, thanks to Venere you can feel rest assured that you will find the right hotel for you with the aid of thousands of user submitted hotel reviews, photo galleries, and Google maps location services.

What's Aberdeen Like?

The Granite City has a little something for everyone. Hidden amongst the 19th century cottage buildings, bustling shipyards, and modern city center are plenty of metropolitan attractions, from shopping streets, to nightclubs, restaurants, and theaters. One of the most charming attractions is Footdee, one of the oldest streets in the city, with its narrow roads and tiny cottages. His Majesty's Theatre is an inspiring theater where you can catch live plays and musical acts surrounded by baroque design. No trip to Scotland would be complete without a castle, Craigievar Castle to be exact, a 17th century home which was once owned by the brother of the Bishop of Aberdeen.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Aberdeen

Aberdeen experiences a relatively short Summer, lasting only from July to August. Temperatures rarely rise above 18°C, and constant wind coming in from the North Sea will make it feel a lot milder. You can find a VisitScotland tourist information center on 23 Union Street, where you can get the latest on any events and attractions going on in the city. The city can be easily traversed by foot, so a comfortable pair of walking shoes would be recommended. Aberdeen is connected to an extensive rail network operated by First Scotrail, and includes connections to Inverness, Glasgow, and Edinburgh. The Venere website offers a Google maps applet to enjoy a virtual tour of the area around your hotel in Aberdeen, so you can find all of the local attractions and transport hubs.
