Rennie Mackintosh Station Hotel
Ranked #81 of 93 Hotels in Glasgow
Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

We arrived early, we we're told to leave our bags in the dining room, we had a lot of heavy luggage and only two of us heaving it up all those stairs as the receptionist just sat and watched us not even an offer to help us. We we're out for some lunch until check in, when we arrived back we collected our key and heaved our luggage up the stairs again this time there was two receptionists a man and the same lady watching us heave and pull our heavy luggage up more stairs and no offer of help at all.

We stayd in our room all night, there was a missing ceiling panel in the bathroom exposing wires and horrible dusty cobwebs, somewhat into the night the light stopped working so we called the reception who called out the maintenance man who spoke not one wor do English so it was hard to explain what had happened and was happening, it was the wiring not just the bulb we tried to explain bhut no use he changed the bulb 3 times before he realised it wasn't the bulb, then our window broke and wouldn't close we showed him and he said "no English" ur not dumb dude you can see it broken you don't need English to see.

The next morning having no light so had to shower etc in the dark, bad start to our day, to then go and have a breakfast that was absolutely awful, cheap nasty horrible food and it shows and tastes like it, the ham was off and the orange juice was sour and cloudy and curdled as if it had been mixed with milk, no impressed with anything, when checking out we mentioned all this to the lady on reception the same lady previously, she said nothing about the food etc but about the light and window she said and I quote " well he cant fix anything till youse get out the room" nice really welcoming and professional.

I no it's only 44 per night but there still should be some form of quality and some form of standards. Which this hotel had not one of, pure let down and utter waste of 44 pounds.

Stayed here for one night as I had an interview in strathclyde uni. The hotel has a great location, very near central station. Staff were very helpful and extremely friendly. The room was on the top floor so we had to climb some stairs, but not too bad. The room itself was very large, but very old and drab. However, it was immaculately clean. A very nice touch was two bottles of water and two cookies for free! Really enjoyed that. Breakfast was included and was good.

Only negative thing I could say us that I woke up with a big red bite mark on my leg. It's very sore. I know it's not a bed bug bite, as these bites are painless, and mine is very sore. Not sure how I got it, but the sheets seemed very clean.

My Fiance and I booked this hotel for a Valentine's romantic night away in Glasgow and it is a lovely hotel. It is 2 minutes from Central Station and found it quite easily. The staff look after your luggage till you enter your room while being friendly and helpful. The room was quite big and peaceful which was good. It was a perfect get away. The breakfast was really good too. Brilliant might away for only £34. Definitely going back.

I booked this hotel for my wife and 82 year old lady friend.
Breakfast room decor was Rennie Mackintosh which pleased my wife.
Apart from the excellent breakfast,you get what you pay for.
Shabby room,carpets and bath towels(no hand towels).
They had 216 which faces a brick wall
The washbasin was cracked,the plug was wrong size,but that did not matter as the water soon drain through the crack!!

The location of this hotel was perfect! The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was really nice. I wasn't expecting much from such a good price but was delighted with my whole stay. You get a great selection of coffee tea and even bottles of water :) room was very clean and the bed was super comfy. Can't wait to stay here again next month :)

Would not recommend this hotel its disgusting. Wardrobe was covered with graffiti the top of it clearly hadnt been dusted since the hotel was built. Bath had cracks in it and shower didnt work. The bed sheets themselves were clean but the actual bed was covered in stains. Upon leavin I mentioned this 2 the receptionist and she clearly couldnt have cared less. Yes we went for a budget room but I can honestly say I have stayed in nicer/cleaner rooms that are cheaper than there budget room.

We had booked in this hotel in the last time. It is in the center and on the photos it was seemed like a good one. Unfortunetely it is not. The photos are not correct!! We thought it will be okay for only one night. But NOT! We can not sleep at night!! Everybody had a party at night and we can hear everything from the pub and from the street. When we started to sleep about 10 drunken person had arrived and they were shouting and speaking loud, they countinoue it at our door, i had to go out and tell them to shut up! You always have to be careful to do not hit your head into the ceiling. The room was smelly and window was broken! And THERE WAS NOT TOIlET BRUSH!!!! Receptionist are not helpful and they do not care what happening when you left reception. They do not smiling as well. One of their staff worked in a grey t-shirt. WOW! The breakfast was poor, waiter nearly rude. It is really NOT 3*** hotel!!!!! If you would like to have a nice holiday in Glasgow find another hotel! It was a terrible one. We liked Glasgow, but this hotel is the worst what i had ever tried!! I attach photos to show you what we had..

Room Tip: We had seen another rooms too because door was opened when we went to check out. Other rooms are ter...
