Sadly It's now gone but it was in a prime position for shoping. Rather noisy at night due to the fact there was a lot of late nightclubs nearby. Never a palace but it was clean and reasoably priced with very pleasant day and nght staff.

Great value for money, but sadly now demolished. A truly sad loss for Glasgow.

Due to the redevelopment of The Buchanan Quarter, this hotel and it's surrounding buildings were demolished at the start of 2012. The new building is at an advanced stage of development, and will include shops, offices and apartments in a style which will compliment the design of The Buchanan Gallaries Shopping Centre, opposite.

I loved how it was just 5 mins to the bus station as we were rushing in the early morning to catch the bus. The staff was friendly and helpful, we were probably the first guests that morning and wanted breakfast at 5am, but they were able to provide simple cereal with milk breakfast and tea, with the reception leading...

What a shame this hotel is. Its location is excellent for the centre of Glasgow and could be so much better. Worn out bare carpets, windows that rattle and the place is just so noisy. To sum up this place in 1 word - dirty!

Stay here for 2 nights in mid Nov. You know that it's an old building, but that's alright, given it's only 40 pounds a night. I was luckily to be given a spacious double room with clean and bright, big toilet. Nice and friendly staffs in the reception. The hot breakfast has scramble egg, bacon, sausage, black budding, mushrooms, baked... More

Good hotel for short stop overs. Hotel is right by the underground and the entrance to Queen street station. (Ideal for trains to the Highlands.) It is also only a short walk from Glasgow Central. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is in need of updating. Furnishings are old and carpets thread bare in places. The plumbing... More
