“Good but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Good central location. No car park but public car park nearby. My room was small and limited on natural light but clean & nicely furnished. Only ate breakfast there which was pretty average. Free wi-fi and friendly staff.

Great city centre location, convenient for West End, Sauchiehall Street areas.
Generously sized room, very comfortable. Excellent buffet breakfast.
WOuld certainly recommend this for a weekend city break if an advance price deal is available

Stayed here on Friday night and it was perfect for our needs. Huge, clean room with lovely bathroom. Very comfortable bed. The room was right on the street but it was surprisingly quiet. We were not disturbed at all. Breakfast was buffet-style and the bacon and scrambled eggs were really good.

Well done for a budget hotel. We will stay again. Thank you.

Room Tip: Room 203, right on the front but even so, it was quiet during the night. Not much traffic and no ni...

Paid £63 through viva rooms, room only. the room was small, but nicely decorated. very clean, it did have a wondow but it was too high for me being 5,3" but there wasnt much of a view from the back of the building, we jus wanted a room for the night that was in the city centre and was clean and comfortable. and this hotel ticked all the boxes for us. the guy at the front desk was helpfull and friendly

First of all the room was a little small, and the wi-fi didnt work sometimes in Room 110 not great if you were on Business.

Very close to the City Centre, ideal location.

Stayed for 3 nights.

Room was clean and tidy! & Price was very good!

Didnt have Breakfast/Dinner so couldnt comment on that service.

Reception staff were very friendly.
Will deffo be back soon!

Room Tip: Room 110 - not great wi-fi connection, sometimes was lost, not great when your on business! - Was al...

Staff are great, friendly and helpful. Rooms are small but clean and ok. The hotel is near the west end and is about a 10 minute walk to the heart of the city centre where the main shops are. Overall pleased with the stay and 3 nights under £200 cant complain plus free WIFI...FAB!! Food not amazing here, worth going out for dinner :) but breakfast is ok.

Booked in here because I wanted to be central for work purposes and it was perfect.
The price was good as were the amenities. Room was bigger than expected and well presented.
Breakfast was average, not the best but still consumable.
There is a problem with parking in that the hotel doesn't have any and the on street parking gets busy towards the end of the week.
