Best Western Glasgow City Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Executive room was a let down. Staff were great and the location is good about 15-20 to city centre but easy to walk.

Hotel was surprisingly pleasant for the price. Staff very helpful. Would stay there again.

While location was good and staff was okay, it was lacking. No elevators. Bedding did not look clean.

I have really enjoyed my stays at a number of Best Western hotels in Scotland. I really enjoy how they are refurbishing older inns and buildings to modern standards and keeping some of the old charm. The Glasgow City Hotel unfortunately didn't quite measure up to the standards of the others I have stayed in.

Hotel staff was so nice. Room was so clean and comfortable. Smaller than most USA rooms, normal for Europe. No elevator as it is a listed building. But there are rooms on the ground floor.

Super modern rooms although kinda small, but who cares! I was barely in the room at all, more interested in sightseeing. Even though they were small they're still pretty comfortable. For the rate I got this was an incredible deal. I would stay here again for shizza.

Quite simply this hotel did not meet my expectations. I had to LIFT my heavy luggage up the stairs to merely enter the building. Granted, I am not a novice traveller & have had to concede to a lot of differences between U.S. & European hotels, yet having to tow my luggage up a SECOND flight of stairs to get to my room only to be met by the stench of what seemed like roach spray was a bit much for me. I soon was under the impression that this hotel had been perhaps an apartment building or boarding house given the layout of my room, which was small, tastefully decorated yet had no room temperature controls; there were two windows which I could open (one of which had already been opened). There was no view to speak of, only a brick wall, window to another room, & questionable apparati that seemed a cross between a fire escape & conduit for miscreants to enter my room (needless to note that my windows were locked most of the time, leaving my room rather stuffy). The wireless internet did not work in my room so I was forced to sit in the lounge area where the television sometimes blared & the wireless signal was sporadic at best. Despite my chagrin over having to come to the lounge every time I wanted to get online (there were a handful of other patrons who begrudgingly came to the lounge as well), I did especially like the espresso machine in the lounge as well as 24hr access to the lounge should I have a late night hankering to visit it. In short, I would note that this hotel was a "good enough" hotel for one who could deal with the noise of the slamming doors (there were two heavy doors that lead to my room; both slammed each time someone entered or left). Likewise, the lack of room temperature control, sporadic wireless service in the lounge only, and quaint reception & lounge areas were pluses while having to manually reset my alarm clock after leaving the room each time (forget visible digital clocks built into the television or automated wake-up calls, this room key-powered electricity only had an older style alarm) and having to take my luggage two flights of stairs were glaring minuses.
