“Nice hotel”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

The hotel was very pleasant but because it was so noisy outside with traffic! (Because of this wouldn't stay again) we couldn't have the windows open which made for a hot room, and a sleepless night. Why no air conditioning? The breakfast was good. The parking although a little way from the hotel is at least secure and you do get 50% off the price.

Rooms very comfortable, staff both competent and friendly. Evening meal ok but we were rather forced into what we had as 5 items were no longer available at the rather early hour of 8pm. While breakfast was fully available it took ages, breakfast juices and milk for cereals were warm. My wife and I are of the view that while we would be delighted to stay there again we would be inclined to get our grub at a different Glasgow eaterie.

This is a lovely hotel with modern design and an intimate, boutique feel, just off Blythswood Square so central enough. We had a dinner, bed and breakfast package which was difficult to fault - comfortable room and excellent food in the Brasserie downstairs. Apart from the unfortunate apostrophe in Eggs Benedict in the breakfast menu(!), it was a delightful experience.

Stayed here for one night in August 2012 with my wife. Check-in was short and sweet and girl on desk was really friendly and helpful. Directed us to Q-Park which was quite a bit away up really steep roads getting back to the hotel. not ideal as parking option but probably best they can do. Have used it before and guess a lot of residencies in the area have deals with the car park.

Room was nice, very well done and bathroom nice and spacious. Noticed window was open and that it had no air-con when we checked in, couldn't believe a hotel like this would have no air-con. At night, both of us could barely sleep it was so hot even when both of us were sleeping wih no covers at all.

Food was ok. The meal was pretty average, nothing bad about it but nothing great either, especially at the prices they charge. Was so hot in the restaurant though, I had to leave the table go to the bathroom to splash cold water on me cause it was way too hot. Staff were friendly but seemed to take ages for them to do anything, this was much worse during breakfast. We almost got up and left as the service was so slow.

All in all we were really looking forward to staying here but apart from the standard of the room decor and the friendliness of the staff were left really disappointed.

Stayed here one night on business. The hotel entrance / lobby is dark and unappealing and looking rather dated.

The check in process was friendly and efficient.

The rooms however need a bit of updating.

The hotel is located on an unattractive and noisy street. I stayed on a Thursday night and was kept awake for most of the night by cars revving up and effectively racing up the one way street. I subsequently found out this often happened at weekends - it was a combination of normal traffic including lorries and boy racers. The problem with this was that the rooms are not airconditioned. Unless you opt for one of the hotels "windowless rooms" - they have a high level internal window with no natural light as I looked at one as an alternative due to the heat in my room - you have a choice of noise or heat - neither of which is conducive to sleep.

I was told to use the fan in the cupboard which was the only way to cool the room down. However this made little difference so I had to have the windows open for much of the night and I had hardly any sleep.

I would not recommend this hotel if you are looking for a good night's sleep or if you like to be able to control the temperature in your room. I have not stayed in a hotel without airconditioning for quite some time so this came as a real surprise to me.

The bar and restaurant are both below street level in the basement so are dark and a little dreary.

The television was very small and hard to watch from in bed.

Room Tip: Try another hotel!

Once again another fantastic night with my wife at the Mal in Glasgow. Went for an upgrade and stayed in room 555...very nice!

As always one of the highlights was the restaurant and bar and once again the food was fantastic! Many thanks

Room Tip: Be nice to the staff and they are nice back!
