“Ideal for City Centre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2012

Great little hotel very close to Central Station slightly hidden away on the 6th floor of an office building.Ideal car parking just down the street get your ticket verified by hotel and you get 24 hrs for £6.Hotel appeared new and surroundings were all very modern,Check in and check out speedy with no problems .Good size bedroom with a fab bed and good size toilet and shower.Rooms have that nice balance between modern fixtures tastefully inserted into a traditonal style building.Breakfast was very good with differaint types of milk,italian bread ,sausages and bacon with eggs cooked to type and order,The usual cereal and fruit juices etc etc.Staff were all very attentive to your needs without being obtrusive.All in all a great little hotel and ideal for that city centre break

The hotel is located just a few steps from the Glasgow Main Railway Station. The entrance to the hotel is a bit hidden and the hotel is located at the sixth floor of the building.

The hotel looks modern and new , we were offered fresh milk whenever we needed it for our tea and coffee.Nice touch with the fresh coffee, water and wee treat . The staff was really attentive and helpful. ... Check-in/out quick and without any problems.

We stayed 2 nights in a twin room . Room itself was large enough for 2 , nice comfortable beds, clean. Also the bathroom was large and clean, with nice shower.
During the night yhere was a wee bit noise from the street below , but soon quietened down.
Breakfast were OK, tea, coffee, eggs, bacon, sausages, fruit etc.Staff on hand to serve you whatever you wanted.
One downside no wardrobe but not a real problem.

Lovely hotel right next to central station. Slightly tricky to find and on the 6th floor, but once found was an ideal location for the centre shops and restaurants. Hotel room was modern, clean, bed was comfortable and nice crisp bedlinen. Bathroom was very clean, not massive but shower itself was spacious.
Fresh milk was provided on request and there were kitkats and sweets provided too.Breakfast was lovely, really nice bread and help yourself buffet with eggs made to order.
Staff were very friendly and helpful and gave us tips on where to eat and what to see.

Room Tip: we had a room overlooking the station glass roof, not the best view.

A group of friends and I stopped over for two nights. Location was excellent for shopping and nights out. The breakfast was amazing, and fresh coffee, tea and milk was available in all rooms (plus a packet of smarties). The rooms were very clean and all had sky HD. Only problem was an issue with the booking, which wasn't the hotels fault; however the staff were very apologetic and helpful in rectifying the problem. I would definately stop there again.

From the warm welcome at the reception to check out every contact with the staff at Grasshoppers was a pleasure. The location is perfect for either business or pleasure. Breakfast are substantial and everything freshly made. Although there is no restaurant the hotel now has a table d'hote menu for evening. The rooms contain everything you need plus the complete Sky HD package. Looking forward to going back soon.

I stayed here for one night. The location was ideal as it's right in the city centre. It's a bit strange that it's directly about the station and some offices but we didn't get any noise from this at all. The staff was really friendly, the room was bright, clean and practical and breakfast was lovely. Would definitely recommend staying here. The bed was so comfy I didn't want to get out!

Room Tip: Maybe ask for one away from lifts and breakfast room, we didn't get too much noise from it but I...
