Great Location

Stayed here for the world Gymnastics Championships so it was a fab location being so close to Central Station. The room was comfortable & clean & breakfast was good - plenty of choice but sadly as will all so called hot buffet breakfasts it wasn't. It was excellent value for money & I would stay here again. However, on the down side I felt that the staff at Reception were not warm & friendly at all, either on arrival or departure & not once were we greeted on leaving or returning, bearing in mind that we stayed for 9 nights. Another small point was that in our room there was no shaver socket in the bathroom & also the temperature of the shower did vary considerably some mornings. Also, Wi-Fi was not always good. Nevertheless, having said all that I would recommend this hotel

Trip with friends

The staff were friendly and helpful. The room itself was nice, just a few bits and bobs that could be done up - window was loose so rattled a lot, soap dish in bathroom would be good and paint job was bit tatty. It was good for the money we paid. The noise from the room next to us was horrendous and kept us awake from 4am-6am but that was a drunken group. The second night we had a sound sleep. The location was brilliant, couldn't fault it. Overall our stay was good and worth the money we paid.

A good night stay in Glasgow

The hotel is a stones throw from the train station, very close to George and Market Exchange Squares and Buchanon Street. I recommend it due to location alone. The breakfast is excellent! The bar is nice also.

Close but no comfort

+ close to center + adequate breakfast - very noisy especially at night - window didn't close - borderline bathroom but clean Hotel has seen it's best days. If you don't expect too much luxury, it's ok.
