“Hotel of Choice!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

I ALWAYS book Citizen M whilst I'm staying in Glasgow! It's in a perfect location to walk into the town for shoppin gand Sauchiehall Street. There are plenty of places to eat and drink nearby.

The staff are always really friendly and helpful especially at the self check in!

The whole hotel is so funky and comfortable, the bed is massive and amazing!! The best nights sleep ever! Everything is controlled via a tablet in the room including lighting (You can change the colours), TV, Blinds etc.

There is just one chair and a wardrobe in the room with a small side table and the standard Citizen M Bunny!! WIth a normal addition of a plastic elephant too!!

There is a large shower room with amazing shower!! I've never ate breakfast in the hotel so I cannot comment on that.

I will be back as always :)

For us oldies anyway....
Everything to describe the place has already been said and is on the website - tablet driven, self check in, podlike bedrooms, so if you don't like the idea of this then don't go and complain about it after!
The thing that made it special for us were the staff. From Calum at check in to Joanna at the bar to the housekeeping lady in the lift, everyone was friendly, all happy to help with a cheery smile and time for a joke and a chat :)
Don't think I can add anything more of value other than this is somewhere I'd definitely go back to.

Room Tip: Stay top floor, you get a great view of the city

Everything in this hotel seems to be run via technology, which starts at the reception. Unfortunately we arrived at a quiet time so the place was deserted and there were no signs to show where one was supposed to check in or how to do it. We eventually found someone to help and they were very efficient and pleasant but needing someone to help kind of defeats the object of the exercise.

Our room was on the top floor and as such had a great view but that was mostly ignored in favour of playing with the tablet that controlled the room. It's used for everything from lights, mood, blinds, temperature and entertainment. It wasn't that simple to fathom and some aspects seemed not to work properly. However, the free wifi was great.

The bed was very comfortable but being wedged between two walls, is not easy to get into when one is recovering from a broken leg as I currently am! The bathroom and wash basin were well designed although we could not find suitable socket for a shaver/electric toothbrush. There are however multiple electric sockets elsewhere for foreign visitors to plug in their electrical goods without an adaptor. There are no coffee/tea facilities or tumblers in room. We didn't mind but some people might.

We didn't eat in the hotel but had a drink in the decent bar and thought the lounge areas were very relaxing. The witty quotes on walls and elsewhere were also fun. The hotel is well situated for shopping and other attractions. If you park at a nearby car park, ask at reception for the ticket to be stamped for reduced costs.

Overall, a good hotel for the business person, not so much for family or romantic getaways.

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor for good views.

Always stay here when on a night out in Glasgow. Hotel has everything needed for the casual 1 or 2 night stay. Although there's not a restaurant in the hotel they do provide food at all hours and the cooked breakfasts are fab. Love the design of the hotel and it's very central to the City Centre. Staff are great and are always helpful. Bar shuts at 2am :( . Rooms are small but adequate for a night or 2 and the bed is mahooosive :D. Wouldn't stay anywhere else.

I was told this was a different type of hotel, but I couldn't guess just how different. There are in fact quite a few things to admire about the hotel which belie the rating I gave it. First impressions are very good. The lobby on the first floor in a wide open L-shaped space with beautiful design led furniture and bookshelves and art creating the living room space it advertises. At one end is a relaxed business centre though rather annoying using Apple products. At the other end is a bar/restaurant area for refreshments and meals. Check in is a bit annoying as its all automated. Thankfully helpful staff are there to assist tired travelers who didn't quite get it.

The bar/restaurant really excels. The staff are super friendly and helpful, giving us some really good recommendation for drinks and dinner. Their own bar prices were reasonable for a hotel, and the breakfast we had one morning was rather good for the cheap £10.95, though some items were a little on the dry/overcooked side. The bar/restaurant is a really lovely feature of the hotel, though given its late opening, it can get a bit overwhelmed with party revellers returning to the hotel. I know this being one myself on one night.

So why the lacklustre rating? I'm afraid its the rooms. They are tiny and full of contradiction. The bed is magnificent and so comfortable. But as it takes up one end of the room it is impossible to figure out sleep arrangements for two people. The shower is among the best I have ever had, but placed inside a bathroom pod with translucent walls, it didn't feel very private. And I never will like sinks in a room. The TV and free movies all accessed via a tablet were great, but with a choice of a mahossive bed or uncomfortable smallish chair they were not enjoyed that much. And finally there is no storage anywhere. There were two of us there for three nights with only room to hand 3-4 items and no drawers. We lived out of two suitcases with contents scattered around an already small room. Finally, the iron and ironing board were European style... elsewhere.

If I was a single traveller staying for one night I would absolutely adore this hotel. For a couple on a mini break it left many things to be desire.

Great value for money for a city centre hotel. Quirky well designed rooms with very nice touches. Huge comfy bed, monsoon shower, tablet to control TV and room settings. Good bar with great cocktails.
Rooms are compact but well thought out. Perfect for business travellers

This is an interesting and different hotel. You do the check in yourself! (On the second floor)
Yes, the design is great, but the rooms,.... 10-12 square meter, yep not more, at 80-90 pounds per night, ... I don't think so.
It is my first time in Glasgow, but surely there must be better options.
I'm sorry my fellow Tripadvisor friends: thanks, but no thanks

And the free films and internet (incl adult films) does not change it.

The pics everyone is taken is from the lobby/cafeteria.
