We stayed here one night on a theatre visit to Glasgow and were delighted with our find!
Yes, the hotel and reception is on the sixth floor of a city centre office block entered through a shared foyer and lift from street level, the keypad entry is only necessary after 5pm and we did not feel the need to 'fumble' as the doorway is well lit and the keypad large!
We took the train to Glasgow and the hotel is only a 1 minute walk around the corner, but I can see how the double yellow line, lack of parking near the hotel can be a major problem, as it is with most city centre accommodation, but I understand the hotel has an arrangement with a nearby multi-storey, which may soften the blow a bit.
Our double room was spotless, stylish and very well appointed with Sky TV, electric fan and complimentary water, tea and coffee and cupcake, very welcome!
We found the room a tad on the small side and there was no wardrobe only hangers on hooks, but understand that there are bigger rooms available and as we were only staying for one night it was more that adequate. If you are planning a longer stay request a larger room.
We cannot comment on the noise from the street as our room backed onto the spectacularly lit station roof but being on the sixth floor I cannot see it being a great problem.
There is a very comfortable resident's lounge with tea and coffee and wine available.
We ate out that night so cannot comment on the evening meal. The breakfast room was again spotless but as it was very busy that morning it felt a bit cramped but the self service food was freshly prepared in sight and was piping hot and delicious.
All the staff we met, the reception staff, chef and servers were courteous and friendly and could not do enough for us.
We highly recommend this hotel.
