Cheap budget hotel, you get what you pay for, even from the staff. We were 5mins early for breakfast one morning as our toddler was getting hungry and breakfast was quite late starting for us, we were quite rudely told to wait the 5mins even though all the continental stuff was already out and we only had to help ourselves??...

Stayed at this hotel for three nights and was flipn terrible. The parking is an absolute joke! Only space for two cars but they squeeze four in by having two in front two behind which means you will get blocked in or you will be blocking someone else and have to play musical cars during your stay. The downstairs room... More

The staff were very friendly and the room was as clean as it could be given how very tired the decorating is. The rooms have had baths en suite added, but just barely. As small as a bath could possibly be. The bath down the hall was far superior in every way. The other more important common area- the dining... More

I recently stayed at this hotel with my partner. We picked this hotel as it is great value in comparison to the other hotels in the area. Very satisfied with our stay - the staff very friendly and helpful and the hotel was nice and quiet. We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

Friendly Spanish receptionist, he upgraded our room for free during our stay so we technically got more than what we paid for. Location is convenient as it is close to the restaurants and fast food and some of the landmarks. We only had the free continental breakfast buffet, but you can order a full English meal for maybe £3. Rooms... More

The hotel is very convenient for visiting the University, Botanical Gardens and Kelvingrove Museum. Also, just a few minutes from Byers road for restaurants and shopping. Given the low cost of my room I was not sure what to expect, but the room was clean and comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast is served in a pleasant room... More

Good location, very friendly, lots of shops and restaurants. Hotel was clean with lovely staff. The only downside was it was noisy, lots of doors slamming and talking. I would recommend ear plugs. But having said that if we were to stay over night again I wouldn't rule it out.

The Kelvin has a fantastic location and the staff is very friendly. You need to be able to climb stairs to stay here as there is no elevator. The rooms are extremely clean. It is a place with a lot of character. We really enjoyed our stay and would come here again.
