We stayed for one night (Saturday, January 2018) to attend a concert in the city centre. Because we got an Advance Purchase rate booked back in October, we paid a bit extra for an Executive Double which came to £82.
The room was great, it was quiet (overlooking rear of hotel) and the superking bed was fantastic. Nice bathroom with bath and shower.
No complaints, the hotel is nicely decorated to a good standard, it’s very clean and we found the variety and quality of the breakfast good as well.
There’s not much availability of any food and drink at the hotel, but Sauchiehall Street is a 5 minute walk with a Tesco, Boots and a plethora of restaurants, pubs and takeaways.
Fewer cafes can to be found in this area, but we discovered one about 10 minutes walk down Sauchiehall street towards the city centre.
It’s about a 25 minute walk from Queen Street station- we found the easiest route to be via Sauchiehall or Bath Street. A taxi is about £5.
We would return, it is a good standard for a 3* hotel, however probably only if we got a good online deal - the ‘rack rates’ are much too high.
A great option for a weeknight business stay - a quick check online showed some pretty good deals available. A very good alternative to the nearby Hilton (I’ve stayed there too), if you’re not bothered about all the amenities of a larger hotel.
