My wife and I stayed here for one night in January, frankly it was 1 night too many. We needed a dog friendly hotel in Glasgow and found this hotel via Hotels.com. On check in it was clear that the hotel isnt truly dog friendly, it is barely dog tolerant. We were lead down to the basement rooms, ours was... More

Clean and friendly. We were only there for one night and it was just right for the purpose we needed it for. You should be aware that this hotel is very close to the railway and the trains can 'rattle' the hotel are they are going past. bit disconcerting if you don't know what it is.

Have stayed at this hotel on business around 8 times. Each time it had always been very clean with good service from all of the staff. Breakfast is standard self service so nothing amazing but always a good selection of continental and traditional will cooked. Location is good for car access with bars and restaurants only a couple of minutes... More

I had a great stay and would really recommend the hotel. The room was perfect, I booked a single room and it was perfect for a single traveller. Room was modern, well equipped and really cosy and clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly and really went out of their way to help me and even printing off route... More

We enjoyed a night at the Best Western City hotel Glasgow. We were down for a concert, and the venue, The Mitchell, was just around the corner. We were pleasantly surprised to be given an executive room, spacious and comfortable. There are good restaurants and shopping close by, and the hotel is located in a quiet street, away from main...

Room was OK, so was location of the hotel. Close to transport links, bars, restaurants, shopping. Niceish lobby. Would I want to return to this place? Yes, when the construction work is done as hotel's location is totally OK. The room view and location was horrible: the construction area on the entire back-wind of the hotel, not charming. If this... More

Stayed here three nights in a row. Everything about the ROOM was tidy and clean, and an okay size for two people. The BATHROOM were just as neat as the room, but the fans were horrible. After we shut them off (which couldn’t be done without turning off the lights, sadly), they still made awful lots of noise for nearly... More

I stayed at this hotel for two nights in November, 2015. The hotel has no elevator and the room I stayed in was very small. It was clean and the bed was comfortable, but the room was very cold. A heater functioned during limited hours and I woke up freezing at night. I finally asked for a portable one which... More

Location of the hotel is great if you want access to city centre - everywhere in walking distance, handy for motorway and west end too. Perfect if you are going to the Kings Theatre. There isn't any parking but street parking is plentiful but is pay and display. The hotel is a bit tired and dated. Rooms were stifling hot... More
