“Very helpful, clean and central location”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

We stayed for one night on 29 May 2013, having booked the night before and having obtained a very good deal.

We were warmly greeted at reception and were checked in early and immediately (including my request for a particular part of the hotel).

There was a good choice at breakfast and staff again were attentive.

We were able to leave our overnight bag and shopping securely at the hotel after checkout which we continued to shop and take lunch.

Full marks folks.

Room Tip: If available, ask for rooms facing Glasgow Central Station.

I stayed in this hotel before - thought the rooms were nice and the breakfast was great but the service was just below standard. This time around it was so different - the breakfast is still great and the service during it is still horrible( you can wait to get a coffee for 30 min easy- no tea or coffee station so you just have to wait for ages)- but the front desk was brilliant - very helpful and nice staff. Would love to come here again! And It's only 5 min from the train station

Location location so central to shopping and for me this was a big plus. We booked two standard rooms was allocated room 226 and 228 they were spacious, and quiet other than abit of noise from people at the lifts saying goodnight other than that good. The staff are friendly and efficient. My son and I used the pool in LA fitness which is free for guests which was a exellent extra. We ordered room service the food was good, well stocked mini bar, I would stay here again and recommend to others.

This was the best hotel for service we stayed at on our Trafalgar tour. Even so, I wish Trafalgar would get hotels that were a little more homey and less... stark.

We had decent connectivity in the room (which had been an issue all trip long). The room was large and relatively comfortable. The TV didn't work, but the fixit guy fixed the remote.

Our last day there, we were promised a full breakfast and got a slight continental service. Otherwise, the hotel was relatively just "eh". Nothing exciting.

It was close to a lot of stuff to do which was nice. I'd hate to think I'd have to spend all my time in the room. :)

Initially check-in to a standard room, which was no better than a travel-inn.
Upgraded ourselves to a corner suite which was an open plan studio style with living room / bedroom / closet / bathroom.

Disappointed that even for a 400GBP per night suite, the bathroom and overall furnishings were still very dated and standard.

No view due to location - view to neighbouring street only.

Breakfast was superb - and served in the room at no additional cos as we were in a suite.

Electrical voltage of the room was low, and experienced this when using the hotels hairdryer it shorted the whole electricity and twice the hotel maintenance had to come and repair this.

No parking but very efficient and prompt concierge who park your car in the nearby multi-storey for approx 20 GBP per day.

Room Tip: Very basic

Stayed one night at the Radisson Blu at the beginning of a cruise trip to the Hebrides Islands. Location is downtown about a block from Central Station. Room was good size and comfortable bed. Outstanding breakfast buffet with option to order from a menu was part of the room package. Staff very helpful and friendly. Would stay there again if I need to stay in downtown area of the city.

Stayed here for 2 nights in April. Hotel is ultra modern and very attractive with excellent location! As is the case with large hotel chains breakfast although excellent is expensive as is food and drink, however being so central the choice is yours! This hotel won't disappoint!
