I stayed here for a week during the 2014 Commonwealth Games, as a base to work from. It is easy to find and very well located for transport (10 minute walk - mostly uphill - from Glasgow Central train station, 2 minute walk from Buchanan bus station, 5 minute walk from Buchanan Street metro station). It is also 2 minutes... More

Just spent 2 nights at the Holiday Inn. I must say I was impressed with the price & the service was great from the start, as when we got to our room we had a double bed (after booking a twin room) I went to reception & the girl changed our room right away, no question. Before I booked the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Holiday Inn for 2 nights just after the commonwealth games. The hotel is located just off the main shopping street, with Buchanan Street metro less than 5 mins away. I arrived at about 8:30am as I had come up from London on the sleeper. I had requested an early check in (11:00) but... More

My husband I stayed here on the night of the Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony (3 August 2014) and had a very comfortable stay. The staff were very nice at check in, particularly given that it was raining very heavily outside and I was dripping water all over the place!! Our room wasn't the biggest but was more than adequate for... More

Stayed here for 6 nights during Games. Despite full occupancy, we received great service at all times, a hearty self service breakfast and attentive room service. Luckily we travellers able to use Reward points to save us silly amounts of money.

We booked via Priceline for a pretty reasonable rate. I can't remember if we had requested an early check-in or if we were just lucky but we were VERY happy to get checked in early after our transatlantic flight, we basically checked in and went right to sleep for a nap!

Yes, its in the heart of the city for sure. Noisy it is but convenient for the main tourist areas and cultural centres. A good HI hotel but very expensive as all the hotels seems to rack up their prices for the Commonwealth Games events.

I left this hotel with mixed feelings. The rooms were stuffy and dark with very very tiny windows and there was no mini gym or pool - so the place felt claustrophobic.My room also overlooked an industrial row of fans followed by a brick wall. I found myself avoiding going back to the room. On that basis alone I'd not... More

Quite a small Holiday Inn, conveniently located. Check in was quick and the receptionist was friendly. She sorted out a room on the top floor, street facing which was the quietest available. Only one small lift available. My room was a reasonable size given that city centre rooms tend to be smaller. I never know why hotels put dark furniture... More
