Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by baz1967 great hotel
Arrived New Years eve, stopped at other HI express in Glasgow but was first time at this one. Very close to Buchanan St Bus Station.
Couldn't fault anything during my stay. Would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Glasgow on a budget, there are obviously better hotels in Glasgow but not many at the value this hotel offers with a comp breakfast thrown in.

Good clean and friendly hotel,offering excellent value for money. Room ok although the temperature and shower flow were variable. When eating breakfast the cooking smells were a little off putting. However these are relatively minor problems and we enjoyed our stay,hoping to return again some other time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jaypee Good room and very quiet at night
Stayed with my wife and young grand daughter. Location was great as we were at the Panto in the Pavilion. The room was as good as we expected and the staff at reception were extremely polite and helpful. The free breakfast was an added bonus although the sausages were not to my liking, certainly not local produce.
Small note went to Dimaggio's for dinner. Poor value food and over priced soft drinks. Will no be back there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mayone comfortable, well placed hotel
My husband and I stayed for two nights at this hotel. It is well placed for many amenities. We visited the Pavilion Theatre, the multiplex cinema, the Concert Hall and the SSEC (£8.00 for a taxi to the door). We travelled to Glasgow by bus and the bus station is just a very short walk away - I have a heart condition so I mean a very short walk.
The double glazing in the hotel bedrooms means the traffic noise is kept to a minimum. We really appreciated having a very comfortable small sofa in the bedroom, nice to have somewhere to sit after a busy morning and recharge the batteries. The room was warm, but not overbearing.
Staff all very pleasant and helpful, particularly the hard working girls in the breakfast room.
Not only would we recommend the hotel, which we already have but we will return ourselves.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peter68 Short Stay in Glasgow for Shopping
The hotel is perfectly placed for the excellent shopping experience that Glasgow has to offer and discounted local secure car parking makes it an ideal to visit by car although bus and rail stations are within easy walking distance.
There is no extra charge for Wi-Fi although it can be a very slow at peak times. I visited in December and felt that the room heating was not very efficient and could do with an upgrade to become more cosy. Having said that the breakfast was excellent, a choice of soft and hard pillows ensured a good night's sleep and the staff throughout were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend anyone visiting Glasgow to give this hotel a try for its central location, warm welcoming and value for money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anna56 Great value - excellent location
PROS: This was our second stay at this hotel. We went for X-mas shopping last year, and now again. It is only a 5 minute walk from Buchanan Bus Station (the main one, with buses every 15 minutes to and from the airport). Also, only 5 minutes' walk from a great shopping street - with all the major stores. It takes about 15 minutes to walk down to Argyle street, but we actually preferred the pedestrian street closer to the hotel, and the Buchanan mall.
The service was excellent - both at the reception desk (friendly advice about sightseeing, with maps and realistic walking distance estimations), cleaning (friendly, smiling, cheerful maid coming in every day, not minding to be put "on hold" for some time as we were getting ready to go out), and breakfast staff, smiling, too, never stressed, even if the breakfast room was almost full).
Free Internet service is another plus.
CONS: Small TV screen (but still, it was a flat screen) and very slow Internet connection. Elevators often busy - and taking some time to accept the room keys (cards) - but, then again, this was Christmas season and the hotel was full! There was constant buzzing from some source outside (air conditioner?) which kept me awake. And finally - it was a little cold in the room, with only one radiator, but we may be spoilt from having plenty of geothermal heat in Iceland.

The Hotel was clean and welcoming and the room was very good . breakfast menu was good but could have done with some information in the room describing the use of machines for drinks and toast. the staff in the resteraunt hurried about their duties so quickly they barely had time to say good morning. Overall though our stay there was excellent

I cannot speak highly enough about the staff at this hotel they always make us feel so welcome and the reception staff recognise us each time we stay, also the girls in the breakfast room do a great job and we get the same recognition, can't wait until my next visit and roll on the 2 for1 deals

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beffysb0y Simply the best
This is my hotel of choice when visiting Glasgow, which I do on a very regular basis. Centrally located with parking close by it is an ideal base to visit the city centre. The staff are fantastic and provide a warm welcome to all customers, they make my regular stays away from home that bit more bearable. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough for its location, service and most importantly the friendly, high quality and efficient staff who create the experience.

We stayed here for a shopping weekend. It was an ideal base because it was so central. We also parked the car in the Buchanan Galleries car park for only £10 per 24 hours, fantastic value parking as we were hotel guests. We will stay here again.

ALTHOUGH HE WAS FROM DUBLIN HE KNEW ALL ABOUT GLASGOW AND RECOMENED PLACES TO GO AND SEE. THE CLEANLENESS OF HOTEL ROOMS WERE GOOD. BREAKFAST WAS SUFFICIENT. I WILL DEFINETLY BE RECOMMENDING THE HOTEL TO OTHERS AND BE BACK AGAIN. THANKS AGAIN

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stobieman Convenient hotel
We stay at this hotel at least twice a year,as we had a concert at the Royal Concert Hall it was a very convenient choice.Mark the manager(?)gave us a friendly welcome. The room we were allocated this time couldn't have been further away! At the back of the hotel, room 277 was not up to the usual standard we felt. However,it was only a pit-stop for two nights! At breakfast we were pleasantly surprised to see bacon now included in the choice of sausages,scrambled egg and beans,sometimes the said items could be replenished quicker than they were.
When we checked out Mark said see you again and no doubt he will!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Battersea2 Great location, breakfast rotten
Well located budget hotel with comfortable rooms.
The breakfast 'experience ' is pretty dire and quite stressful over the weekend. The dining area is too small to accommodate weekend traffic with many guests unable to find a seat or table.
In addition, having stayed Sunday and Monday nights there was no bacon available as it had run out according to breakfast area staff. This further restricted the already limited choice available.
The hotel appears to have a habit of running out of things as there was only a single type of draft beer available on both nights of our stay.

we stayed here for one night but had to leave at 6.30 in the morning and as we booked to have breakfast we were disappointed that we were not told breakfast service didn't start till 7.30 think that times should be made clear before booking.

The Hotel is very central - could not be better.
Parking nearby and discounted thro the hotel.
Very good price and value for money for such a central location.
Breakfast was good - I have seen bigger choices - but this was more than adequate for a city break.
Staff friendly and helpful.
I would stay here again.
