Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 August 2010

We stayed in this hotel as tame guinea pigs, before it officially opened, but the staff we dealt with seemed excellent. The room we had was around seven feet wide with a perfectly square (and very comfy) bed filling the far end under the window. The en-suite is a self-contained pod, although the sink was in the bedroom and was tiny.

The room is controlled almost exclusively by a Philips electronic remote control called a moodpad. To be honest, it's a bit flaky but it does condense control of the heating, lighting, TV and blinds into one compact place. The room was very high-tech and beautifully furnished, impeccably clean and really good fun for an evening, with loads of movies and plenty of choice for adults...

There's no storage space other than under the bed and a tiny clothes rail, so if you're staying for more than one or two nights, you might struggle for room. Also, part of the CitizenM philosophy is automation, so there aren't many staff and there's no restaurant - just a self-service area on the first floor where you can at least get drinks, sandwiches and things that can be microwaved.

We had a great time here, and for short-stay travellers, it's a great place - much more fun than the usual four and five-star hotels in Glasgow.

My wife and I were among the first paying customers at this newly-opened hotel. Overall, both the product and our experience of it were very good.

There were three or four minor niggles. Let me comment on these briefly: short delay at check-in because of technology glitch (staff apologetic and provided me with drink while I waited); room rubbish bin not emptied and sink mirror not cleaned properly on first night; hot water was not too evident on the morning of our departure day; there is a bit of a disconnect between the `budget` branding and the cost of the self-service drinks and snacks available.

However, the postives far outweigh the negatives (and I could put down three of the niggles noted to staff and systems needing a little time to `bed in`.)

The hotel is a fantastic design concept with spacious, artfully-presented public areas and a pleasant bar area. Others have undersandably commented on the relatively small size of the rooms and limited storage space. While this is true, the public spaces including bar, tv areas, computer area and provision of free wifi (throughout the hotel) compensate well.

The rooms themseves really are good. The Moodpad - the all-in-one tv remote sized control pad - handles everything from ambient room lighting to tv, aircon, blinds and shutter. (I have provided a few photos of the room.) Although I didn`t use the in-room telephone, I noted that the call-rates were based on Skype/VOIP rates. This is revolutionary!

Staff came across as being genuinely friendly and helpful. There was that all-important `can do` attitude in evidence. This is worth a lot, and the hotel management is to be credited on this in terms of recruitment/training as well as embedding the right philosophy in the staff. Representatives of management were friendly and `active` in their response to my mentioning minor room-related issues (eg checking out functioning of the aircon system)

So, visit CitizenM for a comfortable,stylish, arty and hi-tech central Glasgow hotel experience that represents excellent value for money.
