basic in the extreme. matress very thin, pillows dead or dying about 2" thick. It was clean, the tv was nice a few more channels would have been nice. Lack of privacy for washing & showering. good location paid £30 one night and £59 second it was worth 30 but not 59 I wonder if the youth hostel would have been better.

Stayed for two nights during Easter 2010 with a friend on our short car trip around Scotland.
We found there just what we needed; a good place to rest and sleep. Nothing fancy, but you don’t need lush bathrooms, posh furniture and great view from your window when you just need a comfortable sleep in a quiet place.
The location is excellent. It is just by a cinema complex and food places like McDonald’s. It is also only a short walk from the city centre and a good starting point for a stroll across the river.
Even though we were by car we only walked around, everything is relatively close.
As far as I remember we managed to catch free wireless internet in the room. Also the few-storey parking adjacent to the hotel was free. The staff at the reception was friendly and helpful, and the area used for breakfast, by the reception, is a good place to sit with your food or plan the next trip.
A typical Etap Hotel and definitely a good value for money.

I would just like to thank the man on reception.....think his name was rob.... Although the etap hotel was fully booked on 5/9/11 he helped to find another hotel....we must of been there for over hour while he searched on the Internet and phoned other hotels trying to find some where for myself and a work collegue to stay. Every hotel in Glasgow and within a 95 mile radius seemed to be fully booked, however he found us the last 2 rooms in the Glasgow pond hotel and they was lovely rooms so thank you once again, his customer service was excellent!

The rooms were okay. They look like rooms of a youth hostel but at least they were clean. Don't wonder if you find a bunk bed above the double bed.

The bath is directly in the room, so it is not in a seperate room. The shower is seperated by a milk glass door. This might be a bit of a problem if you don't share the room with a close one.

Beware that the fire alarm might go off very early in the morning without any reason...

There is a limited choice of dishes for breakfast and coffee as well as juices are only available through a dispenser.

We stayed here at the last minute after a mix up with our booking in another hotel. It is in a retail park with a bowling alley, Nandos, cinema etc and quite central, about a 25 min walk to the city centre according to Google maps but we got a taxi which was less than a fiver. We paid £39 for the room which is the same as we've paid to stay at Ibis in the past, but beware - this place makes the Ibis look like the Ritz! The bed was made of MDF, the mattress was 3 inches thick and there's no in-room tea and coffee making facilities. Crucially, it has FREE parking, better than any of the other city centre hotels and is modern, clean and reasonably comfortable.
The breakfast is £3.75, exactly half the price of Ibis but is purely continental. Not a sausage or peice of bacon in sight, IDEAL for me as a veggie, I could enjoy my breakfast without the stench of burning flesh! I only really wanted a coffee, and the smiley man behind reception said as long as one of us was paying for an all you can eat breakfast I could have coffee free! Bonus.
We didnt have any disturbances from other guests for the whole stay, despite the hotel being completely full, check out was effortless. All in all would stay again - wont be returning to Glasgow in the forseeable future though!
