There was NO heating and there was NO hot water at all in the middle of November. We brought this to the attention of the gentleman on the desk, who tried to fix it however did not manage to fix it, he outlined he could not get someone in to fix it or move us as they were fully booked. The only thing he could do was to give us a small heater from the office, as we were both sat with our coats on literally shivering; it was warmer in the corridor outside!! As it was at this stage 11pm it was to late to travel back home, which would have been a strong option as we did not have running hot water, this meant we didn't even have the facility of washing our hands properly or having a shower or bath. We outlined this to the gentleman on the desk in the morning, who outlined he was told by the gentleman overnight it had been fixed, it certainly had not, I would certainly not recommend these apartments as the problem could not be fixed and surely a basic is heating and hot water!!

Room Tip: Do ask them to check the heating and hot water prior to your arrival, also a huge amount of noise so...

We booked 2 x 2 bedroomed apartments as we had a group of 8 people in Glasgow for a function at the Thistle Hotel which is just around the corner.

We got a deal, booking direct with the Lofts. The deal meant you had to pay up front, but we got a nice discount.

It should be said, that there is a security deposit of £250 per apartment to pay, but as we were on one booking, Mary, the receptionist allowed us to pay £250 for both.

We checked in about Friday afternoon around 12.30pm and Mary checked us in quickly and efficiently. This is before the allotted check in time, but both apartments were ready, so it wasn't a problem.

We had an one on the 5th floor and one on the 8th floor.

The 5th floor apartment was quite a bit bigger, but did not have quite as good a view as the 8th floor from the amazing wall to wall foor to ceiling windows.

Both apartments were immaculate with a high standard of finishing in all rooms.

The bathrooms were big and spacious, one has a jacuzzi bath and both have large double showers.

Because we were going out for the evening, the size of the apartments was much better suited to our group and allowed us to have pre dinner drinks in comfort.

We were warned about excessive noise at check in, but I wouldn't say we were particularly quiet and we had no problems.

There is evening security on the desk and you can't get in without your key, so security is good, and there are safe's available in the rooms.

We checked out and Mary refunded our deposit without question.

Overall, everyone in our group was delighted at the price we paid versus the quality and space we got and all would definitely stay there again.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Book room 5/2 for a double and a twin with a very large, comfortable living area.

Spent a fabulous week in Glasgow this summer with our family. The Glasgow Lofts were pefect for our family of 5. We had a 3 bedroom flat which worked very well. The views from the flat were great - floor to ceiling windows let in the sights and the lights. It was a great location with easy access to shopping &restaurants. They even had a deal with the Thistle hotel which allowed us to use the gym. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We'll definitely be back

Room Tip: Ask for the higher floors - they offer great views

With a great central location the apartments are perfect for staying in the city centre. The apartments are very roomy, very appointed and include free wifi. The best appartments are on the upper floors with quite stunning views through the full wall, floor to ceiling windows.

Another not advertised benefit is that car parking is available at an unbelievably cheap rate in a car park built into the apartment block. This saves a fourtune. When you book, phone the front desk and ask for them to hold a space for you.

Whenever I stay in central Glasgow, I stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for the top most floors for the great views over Glasgow If you want a good breakfast when st...

I am writing this right now from a 5th floor apartment. The noise from the street is really awful. It is so loud I am having trouble concentrating. Before leaving NY, I had read the other reviews and could not have made more effort to secure a high level apartment- for the views and the quiet. I even booked an extra night as we were arriving at 8am and wanted a place to go as soon as the plane landed. Despite all that effort we are on the very noisy 5th floor and I am looking directly across at a lit up office with a man sitting at his computer looking right at me. This is so disappointing. So, if you seek an apartment, then this is an option, but if you are a Glasgow visitor and want a nice experience for lodging in this city, please do not book with Glasgow Lofts.

Room Tip: I wish I could. I was told I would have a high level room and then doid not...
