“Great Atmosphere lovely meal.”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

I have stayed at this Boutique Hotel in the past but not eaten a main meal there other than breakfast . However put this right on our last visit with my wife. We had a meal in the bar as the restaurant was not open at the time. I had Seafood Chowder starter, which was piping hot and extremely tasty. My main meal was Home made burger with wedges, my wife had venison casserole with red currant and port and mashed potatoes. Both were very tasty, filling and value for money. The service excellent

Well worth a visit.

This accommodation was perfect. Staff is very friendly, smiling and helpful. I needed an adapter (only british plugs!), so they bought one for me and said I could keep it. (which I did, and it was very useful, thank you! ) I've been helped with my luggage on the stairs, both on arrival and departure. The day I checked out, I wanted to buy a bottle of water before heading to the airport, and the guy from the bar gave it for free. Really sweet of him. Really nice and friendly staff, indeed. I was impressed. I had room 4: spacious and clean, the bed was very big and comfortable, and the bath was a lot bigger than I expected. If you're on a long trip, don't worry, there's a lot of storage space in the wardrobe. Very good wifi in the room. Breakfast was continental but good, and enough for me: cereals, pastries, fruits and fruit yogurt, toast, juice, coffee, etc.The location is very central and you have lots of terraces, bars, pubs, street artists and shops, just around the corner. Gallery of Modern Art is a 5 minutes' walk away. Loved this hotel and would definitely recommend it.

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!!
