“Huge concept but... a few little defaults though!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2011

At first glance, great concept, great design, great location, great price etc.! It's huge and it rocks!
Note also a lot of small details which are really nice: you can choose the type of rooms (view, level, etc. if available), light effects, free movies available (yes, including adult ones without any charge LOL), international plugs in the room (!!), original reception concept with anyway staff available in the area to help if necessary.
For the rest and the down aspects, I'd like to refer to the claustrophobic or too small size of rooms: it really gives you a science-fiction impression (it avoids you to spread your belongings everywhere on the other hand!) but it's well soundproofed too (which is surprising according to the rooms size), the not-so-clean details along the bed and the remote control (for example) and finally the too small bin and washbowl.
The breakfast is fine but a bit tight too: if you wish to change a bit from the traditional & local breakfast, you'll get quickly and easily killed by the low choice, quality and high price of your alternative wish.

I stayed here for one night in November and can't recommend this hotel enough! I paid about £60 for the room and it was just so cool and modern! The bed was large and really comfy, the mood lighting really cool and the shower was really good too! I can't fault this hotel at all.

The staff were really friendly and helpful, the bar area lovely and the location is perfect for the city centre. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Glasgow now.

This hotel was clean, and very funky.
only thing is the room aren't meant for people staying more than 2 nights. The Shower was amazing. The bed was the best feature of the room. we were placed next to a lift didn't get woken up once. the wake up call is the room lights up and plays soft music. It is placed great. Would Recommend it to everybody

this was our second stay in this hotel.......when checking in the staff are very helpful and polite, they asked what we were here for and because it was my birthday we got complimentry drinks.

our room had a seperate bathroom rather than the colourful pod.....but it was to the same standard as the rest of the hotel.

the bed is huge........and very very comfortable.

we would never stay anywhere else when in glasgow and will be checking other cities for a citizen m hotel.

Room Tip: a citty view is lovely esp from the 5th floor.

Stayed for one night with partner & friends.

Cant rate this hotel highly enough. Good clean room with all the gadgets and really helpful staff who recommended local eateries, pubs & clubs.

Free Internet Access with Mac Computers also available for your use.

Nice Central location with only 5 mins from Queen St Train Station.

I would definetly book here again.

This hotel is just what Glasgow has been asking for. We got the room for just £49 (staying on a Sunday) via laterooms.com!

It's ultra-modern and is exactly what anyone could want from a hotel: clean, comfortable and affordable. The building itself is extremely trendy and functional. When entering, there is a large spiral staircase which leads to the reception and dining area. There are many self check-in touch screens, a feature which I found very impressive. It makes for quick and hassle-free checking in/payment. Of course, staff are on hand should you need them.

All communal areas are very modern and so clean. The rooms themselves are unlike anything I have ever seen before. Compact and 21st century, they feature everything from a XXL bed to a remote control touch pad which controls basically everything in the room (the lighting/colours, room temperature, lcd tv which is wall-mounted above the bed, wakeup alarm etc..). The large window with its remote controlled blinds/sunblock panel lets in plenty of light. Next to the bed is a small work space. And underneath, one large pullout drawer which was more than enough space for a small suitcase etc. There's also a pin protected safe in the other drawer under the bed. Furthermore, there's a little chair with the citizenM cuddly toy on it!

The main plus of the room has to be the cool shower area. The funky lighting works really well within the shower space. You have the option of either the 'rain' shower which simulates rain falling from above, or a normal power shower which can be removed if you wish to hold it when showering. Shampoos (one for morning/night use) are also provided.

The LCD tv offers loads of channels, catering to both English speakers as well as tourists/non-english speakers. It offers endless FREE recent blockbuster movies, FREE porn movies and also loads of radio stations. I've never come across a hotel which can boast this feature.

Furthermore, a key plus for me was the fact that throughout the hotel, FREE wifi is available 24/7!! In addition, there is also an mp3/ipod docking station on the bedside table, next to the Philips room control remote!

Do not hesitate in booking this hotel. Its location is very central (next to Buchanan Bus station, a 2 minute walk to Buchanan street and across from Cineworld cinema/ Theatre Royal).

5 star! *****
