Alexander Thomson Hotel
Ranked #69 of 93 Hotels in Glasgow
Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

I stayed here for three nights and think it was a very good hotel. The only thing that spoilt it was the noise of the traffic and inconsiderate people talking at the tops of their voices at silly o clock. Also the walls were very thin. Found it very clean good breakfast apart from the bacon a bit rubbery. I think if I go again I would chose a room at the back of the hotel. Nice touches are plenty of tea and coffee in your room toiletries and bottles of water which I've never seen before. Nice staff also. I would return here for another visit.

Stayed: March 2014, traveled on business

After reading reviews both good and bad we decided to chance it as we had never stayed here before and i would say don't read the reviews until you have stayed its not as bad as they say.

We arrived after 2pm and went to the desk the women was very helpful and polite, took our details and told us where the room was, the reception area was very clean, when going upstairs we noticed a man in a booth, not sure if he was manager or porter but pointed us to the right direction.

I thought the hotel room would have been really old fashion but i was surprised as it was very nice and tidy and just ideal for an overnight stay, As showing in the picture it was ideal. The bed was comfy and the room was warm and had tv on wall so no hassle getting up to turn it off as theres a remote

There is kettle,2 cups,2glasses,tea,coffee and biscuits and 2 spoons and lots of mini milks and two bottles of water. There is also a table so women can sit and do there hair and also stand and look at them self in the mirror , not many hotels have two mirrors along side each other.

The bathroom was good size and you don't have to take shampoo and soap as they provided it so just remember toothpaste and brush. The shower was very warm and ideal as it had been raining all day since we got to glasgow.

The hotel also has free wifi that guests can use when staying, code is based in the room.

Breakfast was from 7.30am untill 9.30am and good range of buffet and cereals yogurts, and hot drinks and cold drinks etc i felt the sausages and bacon was hard but still nice to eat.

The only bad points were

1. No bathmat in the bath tub
2. The view from the window looked onto a alley at the back of the hotel and lots of trees and 2 big massive buildings

Overall if your looking for a cheap hotel and next to the train station then try this one. For any info just Pm me.

Great location, nice staff just very dirty unfortunately. The bathroom was just plain filthy, wore trainers whilst in there. There was dust all over the place on furniture, carpets, wardrobe & ledges.

Dirty room, cold fried breakfast, rude and unhelpful staff, uncomfortable bed and old thin pillows. Staff and manager need lessons in customer service. Would never stay here again and would not recommend it to anyone

Stayed Saturday night at this hotel as we were going to the boxing at the SECC have to say this is a" gem" of a hotel right in heart of Glasgow and easy walking distance to city centre or SECC and the new Hydro.
Checked in a bit early but there was no problem our room was ready. The room itself was a bit small but for one night was okay the en-suite good and very clean and all the toiletries you require also tea and coffee facilities in your room.
There is a residents bar which is open from 6.00pm till midnight and the lounge area is as good as any four star hotel in the city.
The breakfast was buffet style with plenty to suit all tastes and although the hotel seemed very busy there was no problem getting a tablet and there was plenty of food to go around.
In conclusion when in Glasgow we will definitely stay at this hotel and I would recommend to anybody.

Room Tip: Rooms on road side can be a bit noisy so suggest if you are staying any length of time book a room a...

This hotel is very outdated and run down. the room had a horrible smell, we requested to be moved and the next room was the same it smelt old and stale. The lift is very slow, the wifi was awful kept stopping and not working. The only thing that was good was the buffet breakfast there was lots of choice and it was hot. Definately would not go back here its too grubby.
