We have stayed at the Albion before and enjoyed our stay so booked it again for a weekend in Glasgow. It is located on a quiet street just yards away from Great Western Road with numerous bars shops and cafes. There is an underground station nearby, a park to walk in if you wish and on street parking which is... More

We have been coming to the Albion Hotel for breaks for 20 years. Okay it's not posh, it doesn't have a restaurant or bar but it is clean, comfortable, has friendly staff and is in a great location, 200yards from the underground and a 5 minute walk from the bustling Byres Road area. We stayed in one of their apartments... More

Very many thanks for your kind words, this has been passed to all the staff concerned, it was a welcome change from so many negative reviews regarding the rate's during the Games, as we stated in our replies we thought we had pitched it just right with the hope that people would realise we could have charged a lot more...

I booked this "Hotel" for 2 nights during the Commomwealth Games at £80 per night + £9 per breakfast. Tried again today for later in the month & low & behold its now £62 + breakfast. Its not really a hotel more of a guest house. Bathroom is the smallest I have ever seen. you have to close the door... More

The rates for all hotels in Glasgow during the Commonwealth Games were higher than normal as hotels work on a supply and demand basis, our prices fluctuate all year round, depending on time of year, day of the week etc. However our rates were still very reasonable in comparison, you state that you paid £89 in total per night, the...

Stayed 2 nights with my wife while visiting the commonwealth games. Would certainly not normally have paid what I did for this sort of hotel, but due to the games, accommodation was at a premium. Reception was efficient. You are charged on arrival. When we got there the hotel was very dark as they were testing the alarm system in... More

As you may have noticed while looking for a hotel room during the Commonwealth Games, although our prices were higher than normal compared to most of the other hotels in Glasgow ours were very reasonable, we could have set the rates even higher but were of the opinion that the level we chose was appropriate for our type of hotel....

Had a short stay here while watching the commonwealth games. Arrived early but was allowed to leave my bags which was a very welcome help. The room was big, clean and comfortable. We were upgraded to one of the apartments next door which was excellent. The shower room was large and sparkling clean,. Breakfast was filling and tasty. Location is... More

I was totally appalled at the treatment I received from this hotel. I booked through Booking.com which I have done on several occasions without any problems and, without me being aware, the hotel took the full payment from my account. I wasn't prepared for this as it has never been done before and it left me in financial difficulty. I... More

We booked a triple room at the Albion in January as we were going to the Commonwealth Games. It was difficult to find accommodation in the city but the Albion was very reasonably priced. Even though we couldn't check in as we were early, we were able to leave our luggage so we didn't have to drag it around. The... More

My wife and I took the kids on a three week trip through Rome and the UK that culminated with a three night stay in Glasgow. Having just recently visited with our Glaswegian Family during one of their recent visits to Canada, our stay in Glasgow was relatively short. For this visit to Glasgow, our Travel Agent found the Albion... More

I booked the Albion back in Jan.2014 to ensure accommodation. Whilst other hotels were raising prices for bookings during the duration of the games, the Albion quoted their daily standard fees. The hotel was well located being very near subway and other public transport. The pre purchasing of parking vouchers enables guests to leave their car at the hotel for... More

Many thanks for the very kind comments about the hotel and our staff, these will be passed on to those concerned and will be much appreciated especially during this very busy time. We have taken note of your remarks about the poor water pressure and we are having this investigated by our plumber and if we can remedy the situation... More
