Like several other people that have reviewed this hotel I booked it back in Sept/Oct 2013 when I found I had tickets for the Commonwealth Games. I emailed them the other day to check up on parking and found that they had never heard of me. When I emailed them back with a booking reference ans the name of the... More

After reading some of the reviews I was rather concerned about what we were getting into. However, I couldn't have been more wrong the staff were excellent being both friendly and helpful. The rooms were basic but clean and functional. The location is amazing and of course you get a bit of noise it's in the city centre but it... More

The hotel was booked last minute and for some bizarre reason was claiming the room had previously been on sale for £2000 and was now reduced to £110. Late rooms really need to look out for this sort of misleading tactic. That said, the hotel was ideally positioned just a couple of streets from George Square and was fairly clean.... More

This hotel is absolutely awful and my room was opposite a nightclub and I ended up calling the police at 4:30am. The hotel staff were unsympathetic and refused to move me to another room, so I endured the same the next night. Two nights without sleep. Very poor to average decor, tiny room, shower that didn't work well and make... More

We booked this hotel in October as we hoped to get tickets for the Commonwealth Games. We did get tickets, YEY! We just got an email to say the "hotel" had changed hands and had cancelled our booking, BOO! So not only are we not going to the games - we'll have to try and sell our tickets, we have... More

Booked to stay here on a Monday night and the room we were shown to could not be more different from the website. We were shown to a tiny bare room with a tiny dirty bathroom. At 6'4" I would expect to fit into most showers but I could hardly fit in the bathroom never mind the shower cubicle. 2... More

In October 2013 we booked this hotel for 2 nights at the beginning of August 2014. Last week we had an email to say we could only have the accommodation if we pay double the original price. Despite contacting the various organisations who promote the allegedly friendly city we have heard nothing and the hotel has cancelled our booking. Basically,... More

Merchant City Inn is perfect for people who wish to: - stay in great location in Glasgow ( 10 minutes to Central Station) - eat delicious Scottish breakfast (served by very friendly staff) - sleep in comfortable and clean room - pay reasonable price. I chose this place on random and I wasn't dissapointed. I would recommend this hotel to... More

Stayed here from the 23rd to 27th June. Having read the reviews posted on this site I approached my stay with some trepidation, however, the management and staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. My luggage was taken up to the room (305), which was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. There is a problem with noise from the... More

We stayed in this hotel last year and since then the hotel had had work done in rooms and new carpets getting put... More
