You get what you Pay. Cannot expect luxury for 45£. But you get a Cheap and clean hotel in Glasgow. Good breakfast for 5£. It's an 10-15min walk to Glasgow Central station. Surrounded by a cinema, bowling and a couple of restaurants. Stayed there twice.

Stayed here for two nights. The room was tiny with very, very basic facilities. The location of it is definitely a massive plus point and although it was basic, it was clean and safe. Would only be staying here again as a means to an end. There are better cheap hotels in Glasgow.

As with all ibis budgets, you get what you expect - basic and budget overnight accommodation. Staff were really friendly and helpful on check in. We were staying in Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games and the chap behind the counter was really helpful pointing us in the direction of the trains and showing us on the map. Parking is free... More

I would probably have given 3 stars if I hadn't paid a fortune for this budget room. But I did pay a fortune so I'm reviewing accordingly. It was not value for money. The hotel was making the most of the Commonwealth Games by quadrupling prices. The room was compact. The bed was comfortable. It was clean. A notice in... More

When we checked in the afternoon staff were very nice and friendly and so helpful...although this was very different when it came to the night time staff ..

Stayed at the Ibis as an overnighter for a concert. The rooms are well designed, like having the shower and toilet completely separated. Towels and linen were spotless and fresh, room was immaculate, and reception staff were extremely friendly.

We stayed here in July. When I was charged for the room they asked if I wanted to be charged in dollars or pounds. I said dollars, they charged me a very high conversion rate. When I left I had some pounds left over and decided to pay it towards my room and get a credit on my credit card... More

Recently spent two nights here with wife and friend while attending Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony. Friendly staff, clean and tidy. Definitely value for money. Centrally located for venues such as SECC and Hydro. Science Centre and Transport Museum also nearby.

First time here was here with my gf, she and I enjoyed our stay, bed was comfortable, and room was pleasant enough, clean too.
