Because we had a family of four (my wife and I with two children aged 5 and 7) we were looking for options that were both affordable and accommodating for four persons.
Stayed at the Albion for three nights. The location in Glasgow was nice, a very short walk to Great Western Rd. which had plenty of eating and drinking places along with shops. A metro station was 2 minutes away. We stayed over a weekend and there was plenty of free parking directly in front of the hotel at no charge because the meters do not charge after 6 p.m. on Friday. The river was across the street so there was a small greenbelt instead of more buildings so this added to the calm and quiet. The hotel is on a street that dead ends where it would connect with Great Western, so there was little to no traffic. The Botanic Gardens, with a nice playground, were a 10 minute walk and Kelvingrove Museuem, which was really a nice place to take the kids, was a 15 minute walk (or $8 cab ride).
We were driving, so the fact that it was an easy location to find and was not directly on a busy road was convenient. The on ramp to the highway was 5 minutes away by car.
The people at the hotel were very polite, helpful, and professional, and the breakfast was good. We had a family room with four beds and it was decent in size, especially by European city standards. The building is obviously older and there is no lift/elevator (we were on the third floor) but the rooms were nice and tidy. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to others.
