Connected to Central Train Station! Took our baggage early at the concierge

Hotel was great. Restaurant was way overpriced and service was terrible.

Hotel is beautiful. Great location. We walked everywhere. Parking was easy. It's a short walk away from the hotel. The hotel gives you half off of parking so it wasn't expensive for one night. Champagne bar! Big bonus. Although it wasn't champagne specific. They served everything. Bed was great. Room was clean. The bathroom did not have an exhaust fan. The bathroom walls were a bit moldy from that. It was quiet and we never heard our neighbors. Staff was very friendly and helpful. If you buy breakfast ahead of time at the front desk, it is $10 instead of $16 pounds. I highly recommend this hotel.

If you plan to arrive in or depart Glasgow by train, this is absolutely THE place to stay! It is literally attached to the train station, yet you don't HEAR the train station. However, if you are arriving by car...good luck! There is no loading zone and you will have to find a parking space along the street somewhere. Thankfully, one of the porters was happy to help us unload and carry our luggage while my husband stayed with the car in a no parking zone, before he turned it back in to the rental agency. (We had rented a car from Inverness and wanted to unload our luggage at the hotel before turning the car in. If you can handle your luggage, I recommend turning your car in FIRST, then catching a bus, train, or cab to the hotel.) Our room was beautiful, quiet, and clean. And there was even a fan in the closet, which this lady of a certain age greatly appreciated! If you are exploring within the city center, I highly recommend walking or taking a cab. There are plenty to choose from, since the hotel is attached to the train station. In some cases, it's cheaper to take a cab than it is to catch a bus, and then you don't have to stop every few blocks. We opted for the breakfast buffet, and it was excellent. The cook was extremely helpful regarding my dietary needs, and even cooked up something specifically for me. We also had dinner in the hotel's restaurant twice, and the food was excellent!

Great location in the heart of Glasgow, a real hub of activity being above the Grand Central Train Station. Beautiful architecture and lovely room.

Nice hotel literally connected to the grand central station

great hotel for a good price i would go back and stay at this hotel

This was a very nice and unique hotel. It was overlooking the main concourse of the central train station and used this feature well. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Our only complaint was that the room was cold, likely due to staying in mid-September, when what appears to be radiator heating was not turned on,

In the middle of everything! Great location. Easy access to transportation

Jamie at front desk started us off on a great vacation with a warm welcome and great reccomendations to The Pot Still and other attractions surrounding the hotel. Perfect location to stay for a little bit of everything Glasgow has to offer. Being from NY, we walked everywhere without a hassle or need for public transport. The train station being attached keeps things active and entertaining not to mention perfect of exploring the areas outside of Glasgow. The Scots scream loudly when they're drunk so be prepared to hear loud speaking or the outbreak of group singing at all times of the night since a lot of bars and restaurants surrond the hotel. Loved our stay at The Grand Central Hotel and highly recommend it.

Excellent location. Rooms very nice but no a/c for some of the more humid days.

You don’t even need to leave the station to enter the hotel. Beautiful old hotel that has been nicely updated. Solicitous staff. The hotel has a special rate for taxi to the airport if the concierge calls (the cabs are queued at the station so it’s a quick process). Convenient to walk to the shopping area and other attractions.

Great location down town. It’s close to many sites you’ll want to see and visit. Being right by the train station is a definite plus. Our room was noisy at night but we still appreciated all the other positives. I found the staff to be exceptionally helpful and pleasant! We wouldn’t hesitate to book there again. We had a great stay

We loved our stay at the Grand Central Hotel. The concierge was especially wonderful! We got a fabulous dinner recommendation and booking, and great directions around town. Also I needed to store some luggage for a week until my return and they were perfect with those details. Really, our stay there could not have been better. Well done!

The staff was great, and the room was comfortable and clean. All was perfect except the light was out in the bathroom. Had to take my shower in the dark, and use the facilities in darkness. I had reported this soon after my arrival. Nothing was done, except to say,” we’re sorry.” Actually, only one light in the room was functioning. Quite disappointing.

Great Location and price, the hotel is nice but a little tired

Beautiful hotel in great location but the rooms are very small and there is no TV.
