Having stayed here numerous times previously, upon returning in the month of March 2015 it's apparent that the place has had a bit of a face-lift. With an improved reception and higher standards in their double en suite rooms I was pleasantly surprised. Situated just behind Sauchihaul Street in town it's an ideal location for somewhere to stay especially for... More

Cheap hotel, well situated for charing cross area of Glasgow. Rooms are basically decorated. Found my shower tiles could do with cleaning - grout dirty. No window in room I was in. Dining room nicely decorate. Cooked breakfast adadequate. Parking on street, so could be difficult. If your on a budget it's ideal. If you want more, stay elsewhere. You... More

Now I will start by saying I've not actually stayed in this Hotel but it wasn't for the want of trying, I'd booked a triple room via Booking.com for what I thought was a very good £48, I received conformation and assumed everything was fine only to receive another email telling me that there was an issue with my card...

We found this hotel to be centrally located for all the sites we wanted to visit. We took the express bus to the main terminal and walked to the hotel (a little far, but not too bad - uphill on the way from the bus stop). Each day we visited specific area by foot so didn't use public transit. Breakfast... More

Entered the front door which looked nice, greeted by friendly reception staff but when advised of room location we were led to our not so double bedded room, that didn't have en suite. Place smelt of damp and couldn't wait to leave

Stayed here for one night with my mum and partner. On arrival we were quickly shown to our room which was well located and spacious for our needs. We booked a family room which had a double bed and three single beds. The room was basic but clean enough. The t.v didn't work but as we were only there for... More

I stayed very short notice at The Alba Hotel on a cold Saturday for a concert in Glasgow with an after-show party. Renfrew Street runs parallel to Sauchihall Street, so is pretty central. I booked online. Called to confirm boooking, They could't initially locate my booking, but they later called back to confirm booking received. Nice & reassuring. Staff were... More

We stayed at Alba lodge 27th September for a show at the Hydro. We booked a room on the top floor with ensuite as all other floors share bathrooms. The room was basic but was very clean with fresh towels and complementary toiletries. Also tea and coffee provided with a TV. It is excellently located next to bars and restaurants... More

My experience at Alba Lodge Hotel in Glasgow was a huge disappointment!!!! The staff went through my belongings. When I mentioned that a box of candy disappeared from a plastic bag which I had in my drawer, the receptionist gave me the most unexpected answer: “the lady who cleans the rooms goes around with her daughter and most probably the...
