Reviewed June 5, 2013

I've stayed here a few times, and the staff are always helpful, breakfast is fine, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Not much more to say really. Will go again if I need to be in that part of Glasgow, near Argyll st. I mean

This is a great hotel for you're visits to Glasgow,near the station,pubs,shops.The rooms are clean and the bathroom is spacious. In the evening you can relax in the bar of the hotel,the prices there are cheaper then in the pubs in town. Breakfast is in buffet and there is a lot to choose of. I certainly will come back to this hotel when i visit Glasgow again!

This is a very central hotel with clean rooms and a very generous breakfast. Friendly staff. Central station is only around 200 metres away with lots of shops and bars in the area. The rooms look good inside and are kept very clean. Common parts such as corridors could do with a face lift but surely are not a reason for anyone not to stay at this hotel if value for money is a priority.

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times now and have never been disappointed. This is supposed to be a budget hotel and yet the rooms and service are really excellent. Comfortable, clean and better than you would ever expect. On top of this the breakfasts are great with lots of choice and as much as you want. Being so close to the rail station and main shopping area It is in a convenient location. I was really surprised at the modest price for rooms but this hotel is just simply great value for money and I would recommend it to anyone. When I go to Glasgow I will never stay anywhere else . I am a very discerning traveller so believe me if this place wasn't up to scratch , I would never recommend it the way I do.

Room Tip: Don't worry about which floor you are on as there is an excellent lift.

The best thing is their localisation just few steps from Railway/Busstation and close to the center. There is a lot of bars, cafes and restaurants in the nearby. The fornt desk staff were polite and friendly. My room was quite spacious and clean, but a little bit outdated. The bathroom wasn't in great shape too. In there night it was noisy. Good breakfast.
