Well located for exploring the town centre in the evening. Stayed over during a three day period whist attending an exhibition at the SECC. Staff very friendly, rooms fine for a no frills business trip ... wifi a bonus!

We chose this Ibis in Glasgow as it had a fairly central location (just a couple of blocks away from Sauchiehall Lane and a 10-15 minute walk to the centre) and was relatively inexpensive (we stayed 3 nights priced at £39, £48 and £75 each). We were going to be out all day sightseeing, and just needed somewhere to sleep.

If you've stayed before at an Ibis, then you'll know that the rooms all look the same! The room is a decent size, with a desk area and TV. The bed is decent, and the bathroom is clean and functional.

The communal areas and bar / restaurant area seemed a little soulless (somewhat modern and sterile looking) but we didn't spend any time there. Service at the front desk was efficient.

So overall I'd recommend it for its location, cost and the consistency of the customer experience of the Ibis hotels.

We have enjoyed staying at many Ibis hotels. Our stay in Glasgow Ibis was also fine. It was comfortable and clean, and within walking distance to major sites in the city (not short walks), but hotel is in need of sprucing. Shower hose, for instance, had a leak while A/C was not effective. Service was not the most friendly. The lack of parking was a problem as we had to use public parking which was not conveniently close and very expensive for overnight stays. I still would recommend this hotel.

Many will be familiar with the IBIS chain.

Glasgow check in/check out was speedy and efficient. Room was clean and comfortable. Hotel was quiet at night - weekend and weekdays.

Service was excellent. I rang reception about tea and within minutes the lady from reception supplied some tea bags, milk and sugar.

I liked the option of food at all hours on the premises but never ate in because I was so close to other options. It is a short walk from the rail stations. I would stay here again.

Positives: Rooms are very clean, spacious and the shower is massive.Staff are very friendly. Good sized reception/lounge area.Excellent transport links (underground/taxi/bus) all close at hand and the heart of the city is easily walked in 15 minutes.

Negatives: Not a lot to be honest, bath towels could be larger but thats me being picky. Snack choice for the late night munchies could be better but other than that all good.

Onstreet parking (chargeable) is readily available.
Definitely one to check out for a last minute, no frills deal

My colleague and I booked a room each and we arrived early (12:00ish). I 'politely' asked "I appreciate it's abut early but please can we check in now? If the room is not available then we are happy to just leave our luggage." The lady was quite helpful and offered to check. Whilst she was checking I asked to have my room "away from the lift" (common sense for hoteliers to know this means quiet room). The lady kindly checked with her Supervisor Darren, who was more than dismissive and rejected without looking "your room is away from the lift, all rooms are pre-assigned and cannot be changed." (I worked in hotel industry for ten years and never knew assigned room cannot be changed!" My room wasn't ready but my colleague's room was so he got to check in early! (Nice one)

I came back after the conference to find I was given a connecting room! I asked to speak to Assistant General Manager who I saw a minute ago who then disappear and wasn't even bothered to call me back or arrange to speak to me.

Overall I think this is a hotel ran by amateur. The only helpful staff was the new girl who greeted me.

Dear Sir

Thank you for adding your review of the hotel. I am sorry that we were not able to accommodate your requests as you had wished. We clearly did not handle that as well as we would have liked to. I will certainly pass on this feedback to the team involved.

I do hope it does not deter you from staying at Ibis hotels in the future.

This was my 2nd stay in an Ibis hotel, and it was perfect for me as a solo traveler. I arrived by train, and the directions to the hotel were pretty simple if you Google map them. However, if you are going to walk from the Queen Street Station, it is better to take the Sauchiehall Street route - the rise in the terrain is less steep - especially if you are hauling baggage. It also allows you to see an area that you might want to explore later. There are plenty of shops and restaurants, and some sights leading off of this street.

When I got to the hotel, I was early, but the staff there (all the ones I came in contact with) are very friendly and helpful. When I indicated that I was going to go to the Botanic Gardens, the staff member gave me a map, and advised me of the best way to do so and also recommended an area near there where I could find a good place to eat. All the recommendations were spot on.

The room was fairly large and there was ample space for all my needs. The bathroom was spotless, the room itself was neat, clean, and quiet. TV was available as well as free wi-fi throughout the facility (and it worked just great). There were also fixings for coffee in the room as well. My window opened up to another building about 1/2 block away and if I opened the window, you could hear everyday street noise, but nothing significant. I was in room 530. Access to the elevators to get to the floors was controlled by your room card, so pretty safe overall.

Breakfast was not included in my rental, but I opted to have the breakfast for a fee while I was there. It was plentiful, good, and convenient.

The staff were all very helpful and friendly offering advice for the traveler as needed. The location of the hotel is a little distant from the center of town, but Glasgow is very walkable and there are lots of restaurants, shops, and things to see and do within walking distance.

I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again.
