“Street noise?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

Having done my homework and read some reviews before staying here, I specified a room at the rear when I arrived. Boy I am glad I did!

One of my colleagues stayed in a room at the room and all he could hear was the incessant air brakes of buses all night!

At least all I could here was the screams and howls of the local loonies passing by at 5 am!!!

The room although a double was very small, which is something I would of expected in London but the check in process was straight forward once I had found the car park!

The bed was comfortable but the room was way too hot.

The upstairs bar/eatery was good and therefore was not fazed as a single traveller being stared at in the restaurant which is the norm!

The food was delicious and they had a specials menu of haggis tatties and neeps which was a must!

Breakfast served downstairs in the restaurant was buffet style and was adequate.

Dear Guest

Thank you very much for your review and feedback about your stay at the Mercure Glasgow City.

Noise is a very emotive issue and given our location within the heart of Glasgow we are not always able to prevent external noise which is outwith our control. I do hope that this did not detract too much from your stay.

I was pleased that you enjoyed your breakfast and dinner.

I do hope that your experience has not put you off booking to stay with us again in the future.

Kind regards

For the price a great hotel. Rooms slightly on the small side, and certain areas could do with a refurb. However, everywhere was clean, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly, bar prices reasonable for a hotel, and a brilliant location.

Hotel is very nice. Check in staff very friendly. Room is a bit in the small side. Book your room on late rooms and you'll get it much cheaper!! Overall, a fantastic hotel, with a great location. Smack bang in the middle of the city centre!

This is a great little hotel,close to the best shopping and eating areas of Glasgow.
Only a 5/10 minute walk from both main railway stations
We only stayed 1 night as we were attending a concert at the famous Barrowlands venue, only 15 mins walk through the buzzing Merchant City area.
We are now looking for another reason to visit The Mercure again! The room was a good size with a massive and extremely comfortable bed. The bathroom was modern and very clean ( which is the 1st thing I check!) Breakfast was great with a large choice from the buffet and menu.All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful.
I'd recommend staying here to any visitor to the city.

The location is excellent for train stations, pubs, restaurants and shopping. Breakfast was very good with excellent service. Reception staff were helpful and friendly. Only complaint was to do with the room size. Was very small and had to move furniture the one chair to another place in the room. There wasn't anywhere to store our case in the room. At least one drawer in the room would have been appreciated. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
