Stayed 1 night in Grand Central Excellent hotel staff very friendly and went out of their way to help. Very near shopping location and only 15 mins on the bus to airport. Would definitely stay there again

The hotel is situated just right on Central Station. Whitin two steps you can explore the heart of Glasgow. Its Victorian architecture, a few years ago restored original features and modern touches combine to create a certain elegance.

The Grand central Hotel is very well located : train station, airport shuttle, city center etc. The building is very impressive, both outside and inside. The rooms are very comfortable and the crew is most welcoming. Perfect for a tourist trip to visit typical European architecture!

Excellent location. Magnificent building. Surprisingly quiet in the room, bearing in mind where you are. Champagne bar lovely too. All in all it's a 👍👍 I have nothing else to say but I can't submit my feedback unless I've used 200 characters so please excuse these extra words. It's also worth noting that the people really do make Glasgow

I was born 5 mins from here. I know it's history. Danny Kaye, Sinatra, Roy Rogers (and horse) Gene Kelly all stayed. .. Corridors like 'the Shining'... Giant chandeliers. Art Deco. Spacious rooms. The staff were warm, friendly, helpful. Fantastic deal. One nighter for 2 with lovely dinner, plus breakfast that would feed small 3rd world country. Value for money.... More
