Stayed here with 2 family members while attending an event at the SECC hydro. When booking we requested 3 single beds, upon arrival in the room we found that we have 1 double bed and 1 single bed. When I went downstairs to inform reception, the young man behind the desk argued with me that it was a 'preference' to... More

If you want a hotel very convenient for the centre of Glasgow then this fits the bill. It is extremely reasonably priced and the owners are helpful and friendly I suspect they are new proprietors. However it is fairly rudimentary and does have a rather unfinished feel about it (suggesting some rudimentary renovations by an inexperienced handy man) Having said... More

Stayed here with 4 other Friday's Saturday - Monday. Hotel is nothing special but is good value for money! It isn't a modern hotel but nothing wrong with the rooms, except the double room was a bit on the small side but it's a hotel room what do you expect! The beds were so comfy and the shower was amazing.... More

I had a fantastic stay in the Merchant City Inn. I stay here twice during my time in Scotland, the night I arrived in Glasgow and the night before I departed. I picked it because it was near the train station and had a good price. The room was quite adequate for all my needs. Breakfast was good but the... More

Stayed for one night with friends. Hotel located in the central of Glasgow. Quick easy and friendly check-in. There had been an allocation error with our room so we were changed to a different room. Room was spotless but rather cold on arrival as the heating hadn't been switched on or the hot water - this was due to the... More

Booked on a special offer and paid a good price for the annex accommodation. Clean and tidy, good tv and good breakfast for the £3 extra for the full Scottish For the price I can't complain about much but could have done with coffee as well as the tea in the room. Staff very helpful and friendly
