As others have said, the location close to Central station is ideal. The layout uostairs is a challenge to one's sense of direction. As a single traveller, my room was perfectly adequate, though not tremendously spacious - as a double it might have felt cramped. The tall but narrow window made it a little gloomy. The bathroom was smallish, but... More

I'm afraid to say I have to agree with what most of what the other 2 star reviews mentioned, good location but old decor, uncomfortable bedrooms, bad lift. The hotel couldn't be in a better location, right by Glasgow central, a subway station, restaurants and central attractions. The reception area was small and overcrowded at check in time. The building... More

This is an old hotel close to the station decorated in a weird but enjoyable 80's style. Large rooms, good breakfast included and enormous lounge, dining and bar/t.v.rooms. Helpful staff and reasonable tariff - can't ask for much more

Wonderful location for travellers using Glasgow Central station. Looking forward to using in the future and seeing more upgrading that is obviously in the works One of the best breakfast buffets I have experienced. (Superior to my memories of the GRand Central Hotel).

Good central location in a street that has seen better days. Not an impressive frontage or foyer but made to feel welcome by efficient friendly staff. Room was perfectly adequate and as requested with compact ensuite and a decent selection of TV channels. Buffet breakfast plentiful and good. Lift is small and slow. The car parking deal at £6 per...

A lot of my first choices were fully booked so tried this based on Trip Advisor recommendations. Reception area smelt strongly of BO - only really negative point. Room was large, very clean and shower/bathroom was large and immaculate. Don't expect huge fluffy towels but do expect a comfortable, keenly priced stay. Would return.

A group of friends stayed at this lovely hotel. The refurbished rooms are a great size. They all have lovely high ceilings. We all had a great time. Very central for pubs and shops. Friendly staff. Bar stayed open late. Great breakfast.

Okay budget hotel-centrally located, just a stones throw from Glasgow central and 30 minutes walk from the Hydro. Reception area quite small, receptionist very curt and unhelpful. One small lift for entire hotel. Room was clean and tidy but smelled of bad drains. As it's centrally located, expect a bit of traffic noise etc. Breakfast was okay, but a bizarre... More
