“Excellent, Unique Hotel, Not Suitable for Everyone”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Previous reviews detail this unique, tech-centred chain hotel so I won't linger on that.

Location is super, sleep quality is really top notch on the huge beds and staff are fantastic.

However, I don't believe the hotel is ideally suited to those who are not tech-savvy or who don't want to mess about with a tablet.

For the price the rooms are very small with the shower and toilet pretty much in the middle of the room, so privacy is not great for visiting the loo. The rooms are also lacking hanging space and indeed much space at all.

Not as luxury as perhaps many have said to be honest but an interesting place to stay nevertheless.

Room Tip: City view are better than courtyard.

Stayed for my partners birthday as a surprise, staff very welcoming and service was excellent.
As a young couple the hotel was perfect for us in a great locaton close to everything. Easy to check in as you skip the hassle of a check-in desk. Rooms were clean and tidy and loved that everything was controlled via a tablet, very hi-tech! The nightguard, George as we came in from our night out deserves a mention too as he was very nice and made us feel welcome!! Amazing stay and we will definitely be back again.

We stayed here for one night after a gig in Glasgow.
I loved the quick check in - literally took about 2 minutes and we were straight to our room. Loved the huge bed, the rain shower, the mood lighting.
Location is perfect - very central.
Enjoyed a few drinks back here after the gig, there are lots of wee hidey places you can chill.
If I was staying longer term, I'd prob get a little claustrophobic as the rooms are small, but for one night it's perfect.

Passed this hotel a few times and hoped to get the opportunity to try it out. Glad I did. The rooms may be small ( 2m wide ) but they were fantastic. The bed is MASSIVE (2M X 2M ). Everthing is the room is operated by a Samsung Galaxy Tab. The TV. The window blinds. Even the lighting. You can change the colour of the lighting to suit your mood. Soooooo cool. The shower cubicle with frosted glass changes colour as well. We spent ages just playing around with it.
There is no check in desk. You head to a terminal and check in your self. So NO QUEUES!!
Quiet rooms. Never heard a thing outside the hotel or from inside either.
If you are ever in Glasgow, this is defo the hotel to use. I for one will be back.

As my first visit to Glasgow and first stay in a CitizenM hotel, I can only say my stay was superb.
The hotel is a moments walk from the main train station and town centre and is the way forward for hotels.
The simplest check in I've ever had - type your surname on the touchscreen computer, confirm your booking, select options (breakfast etc) then swipe a keypass.

On arrival in the room, a tablet computer greets you and allows you to control the entire room (lights, air con, TV, Venetian blinds and blackout blind). Technology being used in a perfect way to compliment the futuristic feel of the whole hotel.

Overall and amazing stay. I will be back

Love this hotel. Apart from being walking distance to the shops, train stations and bus station it's all the little touches in your room that make it a novelty.
From the multi-light mood rain shower to everything controlled by a samsung galaxy tab.
The room is small with no iron or tea/coffee making facilities but the bar/cafe sells any refreshment you might need and there's is a communal iron and board on each floor.
The bed is super huge and very comfy.
I would say the room is perfect for a short stay and I hope to stay again.

I came here on business to Glasgow and unfortunately own spent 1 night here. Right away I was impressed with the check it, you do it all yourself on the computer - which is great as I didnt need to stand in line waiting for others to check in/out.

The rooms were out of this world, small but funky! Everything is controlled on a tablet from the lighting, TV to the blinds. The lighting was great and allowed you to change it to many different colours!

There is a wide range of movies and TV channels that can be watched, which is great!

The bar area is nice with some comfy seating. There is also a wide selection of food at breakfast.

Coming to Glasgow? I would recommend this hotel!
