Poor 2.0
Bad review !
Staff were rude and contradicted themselves when trying to con us for £25 as we were 6 minutes late checking out. Ended up bartering with us and we settled for £10 which no doubt went straight in his back pocket

Poor 2.0
Charging for a cooked breakfast £3 when breakfast is included per person is just ridiculous. No lift, to access 3rd floor room on a steep spiral staircase with luggage was really difficult. The rooms need a updating, mouldy and very tiny shower cubicle. Curtains very dirty.....Too overpriced!! Will not recommend!....

A hostel not a hotel.
It is a hostel, a basic hostel, not a 3 star hotel.

Great central location.
Clean and comfortable room. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Great central location. Not suitable for people with mobility issues as it is an old building with lots of stairs, some of them are spiral stairs.

Hidden gem
Clean hotel, comfortable bed, helpful staff, ticked all the right boxes for me. Great central location and hidden away off the main roads so really quiet. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again or recommend.
Martin, gb1 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
Adequate for a One-Night Stay
My single room was very small but adequate for a one-night stay. It was cold when I first arrived, and didn't heat up much - was glad I took my hot water bottle with me. The noise from outside was irritating throughout the course of the night, but being in the centre of Glasgow I suppose that was unavoidable. There was no view from my window - it was blocked by a big bolted wooden door.
