We stayed in a family room with two children (aged eight and ten). The room was far too small to be set up with a sofa bed as there was no walkway around the bed which meant having to climb over the person you were sleeping with in order to get in or out of bed. This also meant there... More

We stayed here for two nights as we had some friends and family in this hotel for my son's wedding. Rooms were reasonable, given that it is an "Express" and the staff were very helpful. Breakfast is included in the price and was tasty, fresh and plentiful. The hotel is five minutes walk from the Buchanan Centre and other shopping,... More

The staff here are terrific and they try really hard. The hotel is a typical holiday inn but the breakfast is really very good and varied. It is an easy walk to the concert hall, movie theaters, and Conservatoire. Nearby to bus station. Near Buchanan Street shops and many good restaurants and pubs. It is a very convenient place to...

We stayed at this hotel last Friday whilst enjoying a night at the merchant city festival. The hotel was ideally sited, suitably priced and the staff were very friendly as well. Breakfast was of a good standard although proper egg for the scrambled eggs instead of liquid egg would have been better.

I think the hotel is fairly good if you just need to stay for one night. Good location nearly buchanan bus stop, city center. Good price with breakfast included. Furthermore, good staff in reception. Anyway, even if an express hotel, staff are professional as IHG standard.
