We arrived at Grasshoppers Hotel in the morning after arriving from Toronto on the overnight flight. Sean offered to keep our luggage while we went out to eat and wander around the area. We chose to leave them in the rental van.
He and the staff were very accomodating, managing to have our rooms ready by 1 pm so that we could nap and refresh. Thank goodness as the teens in our group were exhausted.
The hotel and rooms are modern and very clean. The girls loved the showers. The breakfasts are excellent and the bread is very good as others have noted.
The rooms are a little tight on space and you need to leave your suitcase on the floor but that is the only complaint.
Sean and the staff do their best to make sure that you are well looked after. The staff are all friendly and obviously care about making sure that guests are well treated.
This is a great location as you can walk from the train station in no time at all. Shopping and restaurants are close by as well. Our group loved this place and would go again if ever back in Glasgow.

We stayed at Grasshoppers Hotel Glasgow for 6 nights at the beginning of our trip to Scotland and for another 3 nights at the end and were extremely happy with our choice of accommodation.

We just loved the design of the rooms and felt very comfortable throughout our stay. The hotel is situated next to the central station and therefore it is the perfect base for exploring Glasgow. Most sights can be easily reached on foot and the sights that are a little further away can be reached by either train or bus (e.g. from Hope Street just around the corner of the Hotel). Although the hotel is so central, we enjoyed astonishingly quiet nights - no traffic noise, just the cry of a seagull every now and then. (We booked rooms facing the station.)

But as most of the reviewers have already pointed out, the best thing about this hotel is its people: the owners and the staff! Everybody was so helpful and friendly - we almost felt like VIPs! :-) When booking into Grasshoppers Glasgow you get the comfort of a high class hotel plus the personal touch of a B&B.

Back home in Germany we already miss the great breakfast - the excellent bread and the fresh fruit especially. Joanna and Sean told us that they will soon add a cooked vegetarian option to their breakfast menu. Since we are vegetarians this is just another reason for us for returning to this fantastic new hotel as soon as possible. Thanks to Sean, Joanna, Barry and all the others for a comfortable stay in beautiful Glasgow!

Very welcoming - my wife and I were made to feel at home immediately and the staff couldn't do enough for us. The personal touch was great - we did not feel like we were staying in a hotel but rather stopping with friends in their rather luxurious apartment. The breakfasts were excellent - in particular the fantastic fresh bread!

It's a great base in Glasgow and ideal for those who would like to wander on foot and discover the city centre. We've already booked to come back next year with a few friends
re.

Guests arriving by car should be aware that there is limited space in the busy road outside the building to drop off luggage. We would recommend parking in the nearby NCP (off Jamaica Street) and then walking to the hotel. It's only a 5 minute stroll.

They are very gracious and the rooms are fantastic. Very good value. Amazingly quiet considering that you are next to the station.

It really felt as though I was a VIP guest in someone's personal home. The rooms were modern and beautifully designed, the free wifi was prime too as I was there on business. The kitchen, though, is awesome because you can really get a nice snack and a friendly face anytime that you want during the day. It's sad, but I actually stayed in the hotel as long as possible prolonging my plans to go out and see the city.
