Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This hotel is closed but did not tell us albeit we had a booking of three rooms for two nights and only found out today, the booking was for 26-28 August and it was only an email with the wrong information that alerted us to phone. The staff have been given notice but the guests due to arrive have not been notified.

Horrible expérience I have paid full fare, and got tiny room with single person bed. Furthermore breakfast was à shame. Indeed i went there, and breakfast room was overcrowded with a bus of very noisy and rude tourists. To the extent that I could not find a table where to seat. Empty and set , which rude people claimed to be there booked by tour operator!!! Therefore after 10 minutes useless trial, i gave my plate to one of these rude people, and left hôtel. Hotel staff were totally unable to arrange anything. One of my worst expérience over the last 25 years. Pity for your hôtel. Make sure individual gestion not to suffer same aventure. We do not deserve such. Rgds P bugault

I would not recommend this hotel! Check-in was unbearably slow with only one person on reception whose customer service skills where dire. First room (4) was dirty, cobwebs above the bed, stain curtains, dirty shower! i complained and the guy on reception was shocked to say the least, then gave me another room (114) which was still occupied! Again completely shocked as his computer system told him it was clean!!! Third room (223) was adequate, mattresses in all rooms were dire, could feel every spring, i actually ended up sleeping on the duvet from the single bed underneath! The bedding is cheap and flimsy pillows, from George at Asda! The third room still has stained curtains and stains on the carpet but for 2 nights I made do. Restaurant was not great either, had mega on the first night in the restaurant and was given a basic limited menu, with 3 starters, 4 mains, 2 of which had ran out! My order was forgotten about, enquired where my email was after 55 min wait, no apology. All in all not a good experience and would not recommend.

My son and I have spent 4 nights at the GoGlasgow as a close base for us to attend the Rangers game with Hamburg. Having travelled 4 hours by train from Liverpool we had a concerning start to our stay when the member of the reception team was unable to find our booking, but we got there in the end. If I was purely rating the hotel, I would give it 3 out of 5 for facilities, however as a base location which is only 5 minutes from Ibrox Stadium it is PERFECT for us in that respect, however I am rating the overall experience, which I will give 5 out of 5, which is for one reason only - Jeff!!! I observed Jeff for the 4 nights we were there and he was an absolute whirlwind ; he was EVERYWHERE - assisting guests on reception, seeing to guests requests, and serving at the bar - usually for my son and myself…🙂 Jeff was super helpful to all guest I heard him interact with - it is clear it is important to him the guests have the best possible experience. Added to that he is extremely welcoming and friendly - we had some right good chats over the 4 nights, when he had a moment to pause for breath! Thanks Jeff!!! Luke and I will hopefully see you again next time we are able to get tickets for a Rangers game. All the best!!! Derek

We stayed at GoGlasgow Urban Hotel from the 6th to 9th July 23. When we turned up at the hotel we had a nice welcome by reception. She was really welcoming. We turned up half hour earlier than we said which was fine as our room was ready. We entered our room n was like it's OK. We noticed you hang your clothes over the kettle and cups which is weird, some of the hangers weren't the best with clothes falling off them. My partner noticed stains on the floor at the bottom and sides of the bed. Looked like sick or dog pee that had been left. She also noticed stains on the wall and bed. That first night when we go back to the hotel I went to put the TV on to which we found this also didn't work. We told reception the next day, which they said thanks for letting us know we'll get that sorted. They may do bit the 3 nights we were there they didn't sort it at all. The mattress was one of the worse we've ever slept on. We had two beds in our room. The double was dreadful so uncomfortable. I tried the single bed which was better but still not the best. Definitely need replacing. The bathroom was nice and clean which was nice though. We had breakfast in with our deal. The breakfast was fine what you would expect from a hotel breakfast. A couple of not so great things about the dinning were, the glasses weren't the cleanest. Looked like they hadn't cleaned the dishwasher properly so was leaving stains on the glasses or they were being put in with pots that hadn't been washed down before hand. Also the first morning there was gone off milk out for your tea or coffee. Just horrible. The last night my partner went down as we had no toilet roll left which she was told I don't know where they're kept so you can have this. Which was like a cheap roll of paper with paint or blood on it. Hoping it was paint. I wouldn't stay here again and wouldn't advise anyone else to until, they Improved a lot. Around the hotel is a little run down but very quiet which is nice. Easy to get to two of the Subways with only a 8 /9 minutes walk to ever which was great.

Hotel is easy to find and just off a main road, it had parking when we arrived but I can imagine it filling up fast. The location is about 10/15 mins away from the city centre depending on traffic, Ubers cost us around £9 each way seeing as we didn’t end up staying here. The hotel lobby looks okay although slightly dated. Check in was fast and easy once the receptionist/manager finally came from the restaurant. One thing to note is this hotel operates actual keys for rooms with quite chunky room number tags, not key cards. Hence why you can only have one key and it’s £30 or so for losing it. We were attending a concert and this would have been a hefty thing to carry. Our room (standard double) had a layer of dust, glass marks on the table and dirty towels. The mattress had the depth of half my hand and when you sat on it there was no spring, you just sunk to the bed base. We were also graced with one paper thin, flimsy pillow each. Then, to make things even better unbeknownst to us we opened an unlocked door in our room and walked straight into an occupied room next door. Major security breach, both interconnecting doors should have been locked and not just shut. I went to complain to the desk and the receptionist went to get her manager who had checked us in. She apologised but insisted the interconnecting doors were locked. We were upgraded a suite which was a kind and welcomed gesture. The suite was also unlocked and I was able to walk straight in. The room was huge and looked a much better quality. The bed was big and bouncy and we were even given two pillows each. The room was cleaner apart from water marks on the bathroom glasses, some dust on the ledge of the shower but compared to where we had just been it looked 10x better. There was an annoying buzzing sound coming from outside but the windows were closed. Sockets are few and far between so when I went to charge my phone, I had to crawl on my hands and knees to unplug the bedside lamp. This is when I was greeted with a used condom under the bed. This was the last straw, we gathered our unpacked belongings (since we had been there less than an hour between two hotel rooms) and went to check out. The receptionist/manager did give us a full refund as I requested and allowed us to park for free for the two days we were meant to stay. Just don’t bother, £50 more for us a lovely, clean, modern hotel right in the city centre which we had to book at check out. Take your money and run. I wish I had taken more photos but honestly couldn’t check out fast enough.
