birthday treat

Hotel was gorgeous. Accommodation was central to were we wanted to go. Parking right beside hotel which made life easier. Hotel was clean, Staff were friendly. Definitely value for money. Only major down fall was the bed was extremely uncomfortable. It was like lying on a hard door. Couldn't sleep ended up in agony for the rest of the weekend. So wouldn't recommend this hotel due to comfort reasons.

Central location

Pros: Friendly staff, great central location, huge rooms. Cons: Rooms are difficult to warm up because they're so big and there was quite a lot of noise from the street from a nearby bar and roadworks, but given it's central location that's to be expected.

Great city break

The area was a little noisy on the first night but it was so central and a perfect spot for sightseeing in the city. The room was comfortable, cleaned daily and the staff were very friendly - great for a lady travelling alone! There are supermarkets just around the corner and coffee shops, bars and restaurants galore so whether you choose to cook or to eat out the venue is perfect.

Concert base camp

Wonderful location in historic Merchant City. Staff friendly and helpful. Perfect base for visit to the City, Springsteen concert at Hampden Park and day trip to see friends. Transport links to airport and train station a short walk. Huge room with cooking facilities if required. Deals with airfare providers and concert ticket agencies. Enjoyeds our time there and look forward to coming back soon.

Open top sightseeing bus from George Square is a must to gain a perspective of the City and plan more detailed visits to galleries, etc.

Location is the best part

I understand the hotel is renovating the rooms and that is a good idea. The individual temperature controlled idea needs attention. We stayed in August on the 4th floor and our room was unbearably hot for most of the five days. There was no air conditioning so we opened the windows as wide as possible and used the fan that was in place in the room. The hallways were also very warm. The room was very spacious with good internet connections and an adequate kitchen. We used the microwave but did not really cook. The bathroom was huge with a very small "bar" sized sink which was not easy to use. The staff were in place but the only one who showed personality and made us feel welcome was Malcolm.

Perfect place to stay in Glasgow!

We were thrilled with the huge room we had, including a complete kitchenette, king comfy bed, and all sorts of extra bathroom toiletries. The hotel is walking distance from just about everything in Glasgow, and the staff are extremely helpful. They even have a shuttle driver that was easier to book to return to the airport than a cab. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Update Needed

The hotel was nice, clean, well-located and spacious, but some of the ammentities noted on Obitz need to be updated or clarified. There is a shuttle service available, but it is not free and is only available very early or late in the day. Also the continental breakfast is provided at a cost. The Obitz site makes these services appear to be at no cost.

The very best from all 3 of us.

It was a pleasure to find ourselves in roomy comfort, very, very clean, superb staff giving every assistance to our stay. Mapping out points of interest and giving a verbal history of same, Malcolm certainly knows his Glasgow. What more can we say, oh yes, plenty of establishments within walking distance, with choices for all appetites. Could not have been more central. We were very satisfied indeed. Would recomend to anyone. And, to know you are world wide was an eye opener. Relatives who came to visit us were most impressed.

Come out door onto Albion Street, turn LEFT, walk up a block or two and you find 6 eateries under one roof, excellent.
