Reviewed July 7, 2008

Booked 2 twin rooms through Hotel Connexions for a weekend ( 2 nights) in Glasgow with my sister, my daughter and her friend for a girlie weekend - we went to see Kylie at the SECC.The hotel is very handy for shopping, buses and the station.The staff were all friendly and helpful, the continental breakfast was very good, food kept stocked up and tables cleaned promptly and the rooms, although small were clean, comfortable and very quiet.
Would definately use again for a cheap weekend away.

Standard Holiday Inn Express room. Comfortable and clean with no frills. Hotel itself very central, convenient for bus station and rail. Staff friendly and helpful. Not too noisy considering inner city location. Continental breakfast adequate.
Recommended for short stay where you need to be at the heart of the city.

The 2 for 1 deal is totally flawless!
Me and my best friend stayed here over the weekend before Christmas 2007 and had a brilliant time!
The room was of good size for the money you pay, and the bathroom was brand new and spotless!
Loved the late breakfasts on a sunday, we didn't have to get up until 10:30!
Breakfast was mainly hot rolls, croissants with jam and butter, fruit juices and a coffee machine which instead of those crappy wee plastic cups let you fill up big mugs with hot coffee, expresson,mocha, latte, chocolatte?? Brilliant.
Location is perfect, next to the bus station, train station and near the shops and cinema.
If you fault this then you expect WAY too much.

Stayed for 2 nights at this hotel - got a great deal of two nights for the price of one.

Hotel was 5-10 min walk from centre of Glasgow, e.g. sauchiehall street & central station.

Room was adequate size and bathroom spotless & new.

Price on arrival (if not booked in advance) was advertised as over £100 per night - which to be honest if we had paid full price we would have been a bit disappointed as the hotel, as you would expect, is tidy but basic. However, by booking online you are probably going to get a much better price like we did.

Breakfast was continental (and included in price) and consisted of the usual bread buns / croissants loads of different cereals etc.

The staff were superb and couldn't have been more helpful. Reassuringly, when returning late the reception vetted everyone who came in which made you feel very secure.

Overall impression of Glasgow, lovely city and extremely warm and friendly people.

Stayed: February 2008

Traveling by train? This location is very convenient to both stations. The rooms are small but well designed. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom very nice. The room and the hotel was clean and well maintained. Staff was low key, efficent and courteous. The free breakfast will get you off to a fast start. Rooms are heated with wall mounted electric oil filled units. Get the bed close to the heater if you get cold at night.

Just spent the night in the this hotel. Rooms clean and warm and reception was efficient. The hotel's location is very good for shopping or the theatres in Glasgow. Two minutes from Sauchiehall St and the Buchanan Galleries. Also very handy for the two main Glasgow rail stations. The bar is NOT cheap and is a typical Express by Holiday Inn bar, but I cant overly complain as I expected what I got! The Italian restuarant next door is very handy, reasonably inexpensive but I have had much better Italian meals in my time. It was OK - just! All in all I would return to this hotel for a one night stay if I needed to visit Glasgow Centre.
