Found just minutes from the M8 Motorway at Charing Cross this certainly must be one of the easiest hotels to locate in the City. From Glasgow Airport, take M8 Motorway heading to the City Centre.

Take right at third set of traffic lights onto Elmbank Street. Arrive at your destination on the left.

Dining

Elliot's Restaurant & Bar
Elliot's Bar Restaurant is a well thought-out bar and adjoining brasserie-type-affair, another Bath Street subterranean drinking affair. This one's aimed at the more tailored boozer, well presented in bright red details over black ash and crisp white linen. The menu spans the globe with some interesting options for a mid-price lunchtime bite.
Massimo Italian Restaurant
Massimo Glasgow opened in 1996, it is situated close to the main attractions in Glasgow city centre and being opposite the King's Theatre makes it ideal for theatregoers and thespians alike. With a warm and modern interior it makes a relaxed and informal atmosphere, perfect for a romantic dinner for two or a family night out. Courteous and friendly staff will make sure that you and your friends or family have a good time and a great meal. All food is freshly cooked to order and only the finest seasonal produce is used. The speedy service and excellent value make it an ideal dining stop prior to a show or as a night out in itself.
Bar Budda Sauchiehall Street
Bar Budda on Sauchiehall St in the bustling city of Glasgow is one of the city's busiest and best bars. For a night on the tiles they have DJ's playing most nights with some party tunes to get you in the mood and some great drinks promotions to top it off. Recently refurbished in March 2008 Budda is a well established Bar with quality and great value for money Pub food. Their menu will have something to tickle those taste buds! The Evening Times calls them one of the 'Best Bars in Glasgow' with good reason; it is the perfect pre-club location now it is open till 2am at the weekend for you to party all night. As a bonus it's FREE ENTRY ALL NIGHT!! And there are some seats outside for you smokers or just some summer drinking.
Breakfast Room
Now serving the best breakfasts in town... Best Western Glasgow City Hotel have invested 50,000 in the creation of a new Breakfast Room. Beginning March 2010, our guests will be able to start their day in the best possible way with a hearty Full Scottish Breakfast in contemporary and comfortable surroundings. ....

perfect retreat after a long exciting but tiring holiday

Absolutely awsome compared to a lot of other places we stayed during our long vacation. It was just what we needed to spread out in and repack all our luggage and really relax before our long flight home to Tasmania, staff and room could not have been nicer, really excelled our expectations.

Location excellent, small single room at a small price

The single room is small, but if you want to spend your whole day in the the room then go to Hilton et al. to get a suite. Radio&TV plus coffee making available in room and also a nice shower - that's really all you need for a weekend in Glasgow - train station around the corner - 200 m or just walk to Sauchiehall Street. Breakfast may be extra - ca. 9 GBP if B&B was not elected.

Fab Girly Night Out!

Rooms were perfect, concierge was brilliant in helping us and very friendly. Thought we were far away from the nightlife but concierge pointed us around the corner and had a great night! Only concern was the toilet backed up and was a little whiffy, but overall a very luxurious, cute hotel. Planning on returning in May!

Good value, nice staff, but tiny room

Warm, clean room, but it was tiny. I had booked a twin but this had a small double bed in the room - 2 sides of which were against walls! Good amenities, including iron/ironing board and hairdryer and nice ensuite. Staff very helpful and friendly. Location ok, but few places to eat nearby - if you know Glasgow and therefore where to head to, then this would be fine.

Top stay. Loved it. Great location,

Top stay. Loved it. Great location, excellent customer service. Free bottles of red and white wine plus water and Pringles in room. Well turned out. Staff very polite and helpful. Free breakfast, even though we booked Room Only (toast, muffins, coffee, orange juice). Only downside was that Wifi wasn't working in room. However, would certainly stay again - superb.

Surprisingly modern rooms in a hotel that looks past its best from outside. The plumbing is absolutely excellent although bathroom size is miniscule. Excellent value and a great short stay.
