I would never recommend this property to anyone. Beyond the location there is not one good thing about it. Our room was dirty including bed sheets and cups - it had clearly not been changed from the previous guest. The manager was rude, uninterested and unapologetic about the disgusting state we found the room in. There is a nightclub next... More

This hotel is a good value for the price. It is only one block from the Argyle Street shopping district and easy walking distance from attractions such as George Square, Glasgow Green, Museum of Modern Art, Buchanan Street, etc. Being in the center of action has its drawbacks, however. Local pubs close at 3am, and they don't do it quietly.... More

I've stayed in the Merchant City Inn twice now for nights out. The hotel is cheap and cheerful and is perfect if you're looking for a base in Glasgow's busy Merchant City. The rooms seem to vary in size, the first stay the room was quite small but on the second stay we were given a much larger room. Furnishings... More

I have stayed in many city centre hotels all over Europe but Merchant City Inn, Glasgow must rate as one of the best! The staff are welcoming and helpful from start to finish and the facilities at the hotel are excellent. The crowning glory were the breakfasts - excellent quality, amazing variety, very satisfying and they made the hotel even... More

I would never recommended this hotel to anyone. The bed and pillows are like stone and a member of male staff was acting very inappropriately towards my girlfriend after I asked him not to, we couldn't wait to leave in the morning.

Loved this hotel for our overnight stay back in February. Friendly, extremely helpful staff, lovely clean room, cosy little ensuite shower room and good breakfast the next morning. Ideal for all of our needs for an overnight stay to do some shopping. Would definitely stay here again - fantastic value for the little money we paid.

reasonable priced for the visitor who wants to be close to the main attractions and sight seeing tour bus stop, good price for B&B and then enjoy the city! better do not have much baggage as you have to carry it up. Little noisy from a disco across the road. close to M&S and shops. friendly staff.
