Stayed for 1 night after concert at Hampden. Good central location, handy for train and bus stations. Shared twin room with mum. Room was basic but clean. Beds comfortable and we both had a good nights sleep. Check in is easy, we just picked up our keys from bar below and the most friendly lady showed us to our room. Breakfast was just as relaxed with juice, cereal, toast, pastries on offer and coffee or tea served in friendly manner. I would certainly come back again.

Let's be clear. Rab Ha's is a Bar/Restaurant. It has 4 rooms upstairs which are utilised as a Hotel. I state this as its not a Hotel with a bar (emphasising the difference!). This however should not put you off considering. The location is perfect for all that Glasgow has to offer, being 200 meters from George Square. Its location in Merchant City part of town means access to an abundance of nightlife with good pubs, clubs and restaurants all close by.
It is above a bar so some noise can be expected (but it is Glasgow and it ois in a busy part of town).
The room was spacious and clean and I'd certainly consider using again in future.

Booked a room to stay on New Years eve as we were attending the fantastic Sloans ceildh. We got the room for a very reasonable £65.
The room was small but modernly furnished but a little bit cramped. The bathroom had a broken tile and the shower was lukewarm. We had lunch in the bar after checking in and unfortunately a lot of the stuff on the menu was not available due to a delivery not received, however what food they did have was below par. I had the macaroni and it was watery and tasteless. The breakfast is contential and served in the bar but the toaster was broken and could only do one slice..very shabby.
The hotel is in a great location in the heart of the Merchant City but there are better hotels in the area including the great value for money Fraser Suites. Its a pity because Rab Ha's used to be really good but has went downhill over the last few years, the only thing going for it is the friendly staff.

The rooms from what I hear are fantastic, however I would recommend only using this place as a launch pad for Glasgow, the bar and so called "Restaurant" are far from the standards a few years ago. Very disappointing now, especially given the competition in the area, spend your money elsewhere!!

Near from the bus and railway stations, this hotel is a very good choice for one (or more) night(s) stand. Not only because of its excellent location (three blocks from the Merchants Market and just nice 15 minutes walk from Glasgow Cathedral and Necropolis) but also for the good pub downstairs. Although, at night, the pub was always crowded with people, the noise didn't disturb me or my wife (of course, we joined to the crowd to have some pints). Unfortunately, the hotel have not lifts, so be prepared to climb the stairs with your bags. But the attentive hotel staff always offers to help you. And don't believe them when they tell you that the continental breakfast is simple. It is not, its above average.

Stayed for one night on Saturday. Arrived at 2pm and the bar staff advised our room would be ready in 20 minutes. They offered us a complimentary drink or coffee in the bar. Our room was the deluxe double and it was terrific, very spacious and modern with TV and an Ipod docking station. The staff were very friendly and professional. Our only worry was it might be a bit noisy as the rooms are above the pub. Glad to say we didn't hear a thing either during the evening orat closing time. we had continental breakfast in the bar, again the staff were friendly and professional. The breakfast had fruit juices, cereal croissants, toast tea or coffee. Sunday newspapers were available. Stayed in many City Centre Hotels, but this was the best value and the location is handy for lots of good restaurants and bars. Will definately return
