            I liked its very central location.

            The reality of the hotel was utterly unlike its website picture. The rooms are unacceptably basic; the doors cheap, light and undeadened so every time a door shut it banged loudly. Very poor sound proofing. ridiculously thin bedding and lumpy cheap pillows. Wallpaper torn and damaged. Cupboard door would not shut and so prevented easy access to room. Rugs dirty. Needs overhauling. Compare this with the Jeu de Paume in Paris which has made excellent use of a similarly cramped space.Also building site next door which meant early morning noise.

            This hotel is very convenient for me when I arrive at Central Station in the evening and leave from Queen Street the next morning. In view of its central situation it is excellent value for money.

            It would be helpful if the website gave instructions for walking to the hotel from the main stations.

            It was clean, comfortable and very handy to the centre of the city which is what I was wanting, but quiet with no noise from either inside or outside

            i liked where the hotel was in glasgow near everything, and the staff was nice xx

            only thing i can think off was the hike up to the 4 floor, xxx which gouldnt be helped, but worth seeing the nice rooms

            This was my second visit and I will certainly return, it is ideally situated for concerts/theatre and provides an excellent breakfast !

            The hotel is in a good location, the staff were very frendly a helpful.

            there is so much noise from the bar across the street it was impossible to get any sleep untill after 3am,

            We have stayed at this hotel each year for a number of years now. The staff are extremely friendly. The hotel is well-placed for shopping in the city centre and for the train station. The room and breakfast are excellent value for money.

            There were not too many things to like. The reception staff were quite friendly. Quite well located for shops - which was not why we were there.

            If you enjoy sleep or even just need it this is not the hotel for you. The majority of rooms face onto a street where a night club blasts music and (worse actually) people are shouting and swearing until 3am to 5am in the morning. We were there on a Tuesday and Wednesday night so it is not just a Friday/Saturday thing. No double glazing. No lift but a steep circular staircase where only one person can walk up or down. Breakfast Staff quite unfriendly. Hotel is very tired and in some places damaged. Shower was connected to bath taps and took ages to find right setting. Shower curtain barely long enough which meant constant attention was needed to avoid shower overflow.

            The only thing I would say is the breakfast was good

            Room wasnt very clean, room too small, bed too small, portable tv? Toilet had a smell and was extremely small

            price and friendly. the rooms are basict but still have the facilities.V good breakfast selection

            some late noise on certain nights

            Couldn't have had a better location, 2 mins. Walk to the shopping centre. The shopping centre in Glasgow puts Southampton to shame! It's a definite "must go there again" place. Nice breakfast too, cooked was nice and hot. Staff nice, friendly and helpful.

            The noise from the night club opposite. This started late at night and went on til 3.30 - 4.00am every night. The hotel can do nothing about this because as it's a listed building they can't even put double glazing in. The room was smallest I've ever had in all the places and countries I've been to though spotlessly clean..

          • Single
            5.0

            Location although central absolutely awful as it is next to a nightclub open until 3.30 in the morning. As I didn't get a wink of sleep for three nights anything more than £10 a night for bed and breakfast is an absolute rip off.

          • Single
            7.0

            Exceptionally good breakfast chef, very outgoing, friendly, welcoming, and first-rate cook. The reception staff were really nice and very helpful as well.

            This is a budget hotel so don't expect facilities beyond the budget bracket, but the breakfast is a highlight and well above what you might expect.
