The facilities were standard but the room was very clean. We were on the 4th floor but with there being no lift only a spiral staircase we will ask for a lower floor if we return to this hotel. The cooked breakfast was very good and we're glad we took this option as the continental breakfast selection was very limited.... More

A very nice stay. The service is good, like the breakfast. The room and the bathroom were clean. The room was spacious. It is very well located to visit Glasgow. There are some pubs close to the hostel : that's a positiv point but a negativ one too : there were some noise in the late evening, as we were... More

I can understand the mix reviews. The hotel is in an old building in the middle of a city. Yes there is a massive spiral staircase through centre of building, I thought it gave character and the young bloke on reception carried my bag to my room so no effort there. We were on the first floor, may have been... More

We stayed in the Merchant City Inn for 1 night whilst we were visiting Glasgow for the commonwealth games. I was really worried about going after reading the reviews on here but i was pleasently surprised. I booked the room last October once i knew we had tickets for the games and had no problems at all with my reservation.... More

Recently stayed here on a business trip during the Commonwealth Games. Handily situated near George's Square & reasonably close to Queen Street station. On arrival I was greeted by 2 friendly staff on reception however neither offered to take my bags up the winding staircase. I had a double room which was quite small, it was clean but had a... More

The Merchant City Hotel is a nice and friendly place. The staff is very helpful, even helping to carry luggage up the stairs. They have free wifi and a decent continental breakfast. Only drawback is the stairs.

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
