“Perfect”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We stayed for 4 nights at this hotel. On day one we had already arrived at 9:30, check in to the hotel is from 03.00pm. The very friendly manager of the hotel, arranged that we were already couuld go to check in our room. Top service. Every day a good breakfast that is included in the price. Free wifi, very central. We had a 2 person room with seperate beds, nice room and bathroom. The next time I go back to Glasgow, I stay at this hotel again.

I went to this hotel last week. Frankly I was looking for Premier Inn since everybody is talking about it is spacious and everything. So I wanted to try. But I was lost to find it. Thus I just saw Holiday Inn Express. Then I thought why shouldn't I try it?

First impression was, the hotel is quite far from Central Station by walking distance (14 minutes) but it trespasses many shopping malls and boutiques along the way.

The hotel was good with £76 per night with breakfast. The breakfast was simple but healthy and good for sure.

Room Tip: ask for river view room. it is lovely every dawn and dusk.

Each and every member of the staff are friendly and cannot do enough for you, they are some of the best that we have experienced. It is a shame that parts of the hotel let the staff down. The room on the first night had a lever on one window broken, so there was a bit more traffic noise, the main problem however, was the draught coming in. The commercial sized air conditioning unit had a mind of its own and only blew cold air at full speed, with the noise of an aircraft. We were changed to another room for the second night, with severe apologies from the receptionist. This 3rd floor room appeared to be in much better condition. There is a choice of a hard or soft pillow. The rooms only have showers, so with the Saturday night being busy, (Full of the rowdy brigade) the shower temperature was not at maximum on Sunday Morning, however, that is what the hotel is there for! The toast/croissants/ juices/tea coffee Etc for breakfast are excellent, but we did note rate the cooked stuff!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor, to help reduce traffic noise.

What more do you need. Event though the hotel was busy, everything was efficient.

i was here again for 2 nights and as usual everything was great. The location is super, just behind St Enoch Centre and you get free breakfast which adds to the value, although choose the time you go for it as it can be busy. My only downfall this time was it was the most uncomfortable bed i've had yet and the room's air con unit was very noisy (room 214). i shall request another room next time i stay. As with most budget hotels, the bar is overpriced, but you're not here for the hotel bar. For the money you pay, £43 per night is my average, you get a good standard, with mainly happy staff and a pretty good stay.

The booking information and pricing provided at the front desk did not match the price requested at the check-in date.

No efford from the front desk was made to clarify the situation, the manager was not called and nor the booking agent.
