Very confused as to how this place as achieved a lofty 98th position out of 108, as I cannot possibly imagine there are ten worse places on the planet, let alone Glasgow.
1/Staff incredibly rude and unhelpful.
3/"Hotel" not cleaned in decades.
4/Reception area is indicative of what to expect....early 1970's spring to mind, and untouched since.
5/Room....disaster zone....3" portable TV not working and if it was you would require magnifying glass to watch.No Towels and the thoroughly distasteful staff very reluctant to provide.Shower area filthy(immediately decided the en-suite area would only be visited in desperation/outbreak of War).Tea & Coffee facilities...pointless. Bedding, Bed and Pillows....not worth a mention....would have slept fully clothed on carpet, but terrified of what I may have seen underneath the bed and what may be living on the floor also.
6/Breakfast, unfortunately, (second thoughts....very fortunately as this certainly would have ensured a visit to Glasgows' Western Infirmary A & E due to food poisoning) was given a massive side step.I dread to imagine what food, cutlery and crockery would have been produced and I'm confident what could be found in the bins on Great Western Road, would have been more satisfactory.
7/Following morning...the (un)cleaning staff(I would use chambermaid, but I would rather not insult that profession), unlocked the room and just strolled in.Likewise 30 minutes later, and would offer no explanation apart from being particularly impolite and again 20 minutes later.
Never ever use this place, if it was free of charge, it would still be zero value for money.
A truly awful/nauseous experience for two people that have travelled the globe a few times over...the website should be made to be just a little reflective of what you have to go through, Health and Safety should be called in, Food inspectors and similar would have a field day.
A choice of the back streets of Kabul or the Botanic Hotel.....Kabul every single time.
