after reading reviews we were a bit concerned but they were totlaly unfounded . This hotel is good value and the room was spacious, clean and warm, the bathroom and shower was very good , the breakfast was good. anyone looking for a central hotel they would not go wrong in booking this one , we would use again.

Booked this last minute as we were going for a night out in Glasgow the hotel is central for everything the location of it is the only good thing about it I don't know what the decor is trying to be with samples of Charles Rennie Mackintosh design meets tartan meets early 90s decor. The staff are pretty unwelcoming with... More

We stayed here at this hotel for one Saturday night. As our room faced onto Argyle Street and there was no double glazing, it was very noisy until about 2am. Our room had a blocked up doorway to the next door bedroom and so we were disturbed when our neighbours came to bed at approx 12 midnight. The bed was... More

Lovely hotel, great location. Brill value as we only paid about £40 for the night for the two of us, including breakfast. Nice big room had complimentary bottles of water and a flat screen tv with freeview. The cooked breakfast was good and the waiting staff were very friendly.

First impressions we arrived before the check in time, got a very unfriendly welcome, told no rooms ready, no welcome to the hotel, no smile nothing. We asked if could leave our bag which we could. We re-checked in that evening to a much friendlier staff member who did the usual welcome greeting etc. Got to our room which was... More

Great old hotel close to Glasgow Central railway. Huge room but very comfortable, easily adjusted heater for comfort. Has a small lift which is great. Breakfast was excellent and served in a wonderfully decorated dining room.

We really liked this hotel - came out of Glasgow Central station - took Hope Street exit (quickest way) - just a few yards away opposite the Radisson Blu (you can see it on exit from station) is this old victorian hotel. Reception staff were very nice and friendly - we had room 401 (smoking room) on the fourth floor... More

Booked this hotel a while back and as usual some of the reviews on here were enough to cause slight anxiety. However, as with every hotel I have stayed in, these proved to be unfounded. I honestly do not know why some people find the need to complain about minutae. We were allocated a refurbished room on the fourth floor... More
