I love staying in penthouses but his hotel is probably one of Glasgow's best kept penthouse secrets. It's based in the Caledonian Chambers, on Union Street, on the sixth floor, and the first thing that hit me when I walked in, was it's appealing surroundings. It felt like I was walking into a nicely decorated, every so Scandinavian style house, not a hotel. The rooms have high ceilings and have ample space. They have added a SkyPlus box in every room as standard, with movies and sport (if you fancy staying in that is). They have a lounge with fully stocked fridges with a variety of beverages and laptops available. There is also on tap freshly ground coffee and various cup cakes and delights going. The 'Kitchen' is where you have breakfast and where they serve a different three course meal every night. Everything is delicious. Breakfast is included in the price, dinner is optional. Bottled water is free and so is the Wifi. I felt quite at home. Ceiling fans and modern decor throughout the rooms - fantastic. The only gripe (not that I really want to have one, and not that they can do a lot about it) is the street noise. You have to accept that you are in the city and the original sash windows are not going to keep out street noise which starts early and ends late so that's just one thing you need to be aware of. Otherwise it's a five stars from me. You've done an incredible job of this hotel guys. Congratulations! I'll be back.
