Very friendly and efficient staff make this ordinary hotel special. Our room was low on style but high on space , comfort and cleanliness. It was easy to locate and has good underground carparking at a good price. The location suited our needs but it is not in the beating heart of Glasgow. A ftness centre and swimming pool are... More

The Thistle offered much more than I expected. Most European hotel rooms are rather small, but this room was really spacious. The breakfast bar was amazing--even the haggis was good. The only problem was that the pool closed early on the weekends.

Booked a one night stay for work. It started out as superb but the food let them down badly. The location is great, central and lots of parking under the hotel all well sign posted upon arrival and easy to get into hotel reception... Nothing worse than walking miles in the dark so this was a big plus point! The... More

It's close to the shops on Buchanan street and sauchihall, the cinema, pubs and restaurants, the kings theatre,the bus station and lots more. The hotel itself is lovely, it has a bar, swimming pool, gym and car park!! Which are few and far between... More

The Thistle Hotel has several things going for it. It is well located close to shopping,restaurants and pubs in central Glasgow, it has friendly, helpful staff and it offers an excellent, reasonably priced breakfast buffet. On the negative side, we found the guest rooms to be smaller than what we're used to and the quite noisy in the early morning... More

I am staying here at the moment for a week with work. This is a pleasant hotel, the room I am in is large and comfortable, although the bathroom is a bit dated and worn (however is very clean) The gym here is well equipped for a hotel, and the kit well maintained. Breakfast is great, but think that's mainly... More

King size bed not available. Our travel companions did get get two double beds. We did arrive early ( 9 AM ) and the room was available which was really appreciated after flying from NWK overnight. The hotel was on the CIE tour package and we arrived a day early.

Stayed here for 4 nights on business- (good menu in the restaurant if a bit pricey for what you get), friendly staff, cheap car parking and very good inner city location. Room was basic and clean if a bit dated- better than some of the other hotels in the city centre which seem more like hostels- this hotel had a... More
