This is a quirky little modern hotel in the center of Glasgow that gets just about everything right. Staff are attentive, knowledgeable, and incredibly hospitable. They really go the extra mile to ensure a good stay, right down to staging themed game nights in the hotel corridors to go along with the Commonwealth Games. The bed was very comfortable, plenty...

This place is just lovely. Accessed through a door on Union St (right near Central Station), this hotel is delightful. Rooms are modern, very clean and stylishly decorated and the staff (especially the Irish manager) are over the top accommodating. Compared to the Ibis/ Jurys/ Travelodge/ cardboard cut out hotels out there - The Grasshopper is a real experience. Top... More

I stayed for one night with my son whilst visiting Strathclyde University. I knew that the hotel was located in an office block, but still managed to walk past it, so you need to look out for the entrance to Caledonian Chambers and take the lift to the 6th floor. I arrived very early and although my room wasn't ready,... More

My wife and I stayed at Grasshoppers Hotel recently during a short trip to Glasgow. Trip Advisor Reviews are very accurate because we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this excellent little hotel. The Manager Sean and his wife administer a top class hotel. Breakfast is excellent and plentiful while the iconic ‘cup cakes’ are a pleasant (if calorie-laden) bonus! Rooms... More

Without the Flag flying above the door, you would not know that there was Hotel situated at the Top Floor of an Office Building next to Central Station. After getting out of the lift on the 6th Floor you can tell you are in a comfortable and bright Hotel with a tray of Cup Cakes to welcome you. The Rooms... More

Absolutely loved this hotel! It is on the 6th floor of an office building and we did walk past it at first as it's a small door next to the station which is easy to miss...but it was a haven when we got upstairs! We were early but the lady on reception went to see if she could let us... More

I love staying in penthouses but his hotel is probably one of Glasgow's best kept penthouse secrets. It's based in the Caledonian Chambers, on Union Street, on the sixth floor, and the first thing that hit me when I walked in, was it's appealing surroundings. It felt like I was walking into a nicely decorated, every so Scandinavian style house,... More

We stayed for one night - very nice hotel, friendly staff. The room was very stylish and despite the location (next to the central station) it was very quiet. We would return immediately. Try the cupcakes.

Stayed here when I went to Glasgow for the Eminem gig last year. The hotel has character and the staff were really friendly. Great location as its a close distance from the train station. Would definitely stay there again!
