Stayed here a few months ago. Money was a bit tight and our options were limited. The hotel was easy to find and in a good location. The room was ok, a bit below par (we weren't expecting much for the price). The toilet was on a raised platform which made it difficult to use, we can laugh about it... More

Location is great, just around the corner from the train station and the city center. Also a lot of pubs and restaurants nearby. The neighborhood itself does not look too good and I could understand some people don't feel too comfortable around there. The rooms are basic but clean, breakfast is included and decent. The staff is not too welcoming... More

Lifesavers! Last minute booking as I overstayed in Glasgow missing transport home and they were happy to accommodate. The staff are friendly and the rooms were nice. No rush to kick you out in the morning either. Overall, a nice establishment.

The Alexander Thomson Hotel in Glasgow is a nasty shock on arrival; surrounded by boarded up buildings, pawn shops and doubtful underwear shops, with a black and grubby looking facade and entrance, and a woefully antiquated reception desk. We were promised by the person who'd booked and paid for the two day stay that we would have the best room... More

Budget hotel, of course not top-category but absolutely worthy for the price you pay! Huge breakfast - also this average quality, but massive and included in the price. Perfect location, super-close to the station and few steps from the centre. For few days, definitely suggested! Maybe for a romantic weekend look at something better...

This hotel is very central which is great. When I checked into this hotel I noticed that that receptionist seems like they have a chip on their shoulder. Very unwelcoming and want payment upfront, no excuses. My room was on the 4th floor so I took the lift which is tiny and extremely slow. I got a double room which... More
