Score from 702 reviews Very good
We really liked how the staff looked after our needs, especially the head chef was super.
Very handy for Queen Street Station and George Square
Steep spiral staircases if carrying a lot of luggage
The racket the other guests were making in the corridor at all hours of the night
Pleasant staff Excellent breakfast
I thought the lighting quite dim
Despite being city centre, I could only hear seagulls, no traffic. Good breakfast with plenty of choice. No need to go hungry! En suite bathroom - basic but fine.
Couldn't get TV to work but was too tired to want to watch it anyway!
I got a very spacious room. Very nice staff. Continental breakfast served was good.
No lifts as we were carrying big luggages.
Friendly welcome. Basic but comfortable and clean. Good shower.
Couldn't get TV to work.
Nice room with all facolities
I can not know the hand Towels and the towels wich you put on the floor when you step out from the shower, they are kept in the same place. Second the window is heavy to open and close.
Very central, a few seconds walk from argyll street. Rooms were clean and comfortable.
Lots of noise during the night from nearby pubs and clubs. This didn't bother me at all but just as a side note for others.
The staff were exceptionally kind and made it easy to use the hotel as a perfect spot for exploring Glasgow. The chef was very friendly and the breakfast was tasty and filling. Very good value for money and looking forward to going back
Good breakfast, attentive chef, thick pile carpeting on stairway.
Woken at 2.30 am by shouting and swearing from street below for over an hour. Night club clientele ?
no lifts; no people to help! breakfast ... just enough!
Friendly helpful staff, rooms basic but clean and comfortable and good value for money, good location for bars, restaurants and shops being within merchant city
Room being on ground floor next to Wilson Street was particularly noisy so sleep difficult but given the location not surprising would request room on upper floors on a future stay other guests in our party in upper floor rooms didn't have as much trouble with noise
Not a smile not a please or thank you,unhappy looking as if they didn't want to help or do anything for customers.
Staff with no people skills

Noisy location at night
Overpriced. No elevator. The hotel is a joke. Please take of your list.
The hotel is based in the centre of Glasgow and was ideal for me since this was my first visit to the city. The staff were polite and friendly. I would definitely stay in the hotel again.
If like me you love a cup of tea in your room after a long day it is frustrating to find only one teabag but loads of sugar. I am sure a couple of extra bags wouldn't break the bank. The hotel is situated next to a bar/club and over the weekend it did get quite loud but next time I will bring ear plugs!
Friendly helpful staff
Although good central location, hotel is in a quiet, poorly lit street, so felt uncomfortable walking back to hotel after dark. Bed faced away from TV, and it was too heavy to move round to make watching TV more comfortable. Tea and coffee making facilities poor - only one old stained tea bag and one sachet of coffee provided. Window in room looked onto a closed wooden door, so no daylight or outlook at all
2 mins from everywhere i wanted to go wld stay again
Breakfast was included (continental). Tea and coffee facilities in room. Rooms were warm.
Windows were very high and was open slightly. Couldn't close the window which resulted in a lot of noise coming from the street.
My room was huge, booked a single room but got a twin. Room was clean as was the bedding. Bathroom was obviously new. Reception staff helpful. I was wary staying alone after reading reviews but I felt safe and hotel exceeded expectations. Would definitely return. Central location to all attractions and bus station as needed to be close as attended the killers concert at Bellahouston Park.
Room was cold but its August so guess didn't expect any heating. Some noise from local nightclub.
The only good thing about this hotel was the location - it was just off Argyll Street which is really handy for the city centre, but then again, so is the Premier Inn!
No toilet paper in the bathroom. No hot water came out of the shower. The pillows were rock hard and we couldn't get the window closed meaning we could hear the sea gulls screaching from the sun came up.
No lift Very basic Very noisy late at night
The room and bathroom were very decent. The location is perfect for anyone visiting Glasgow. Near nightlife and restaurants of Merchant City and near transport hubs.
The staff were very casual and didnt look like they cared. There was something a bit odd about the atmosphere. The room would not lock from the inside.
