“Modern so friendly designer hotel....help yourself to wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

If you can forget/forgive the outrageous prices charged by all Glasgow Hotels during the Commonwealth Games.....then this is a Gem of a find. On the 6th floor of an office block adjacent to Glasgow Central Station, this oh so friendly haven of peace is the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed at. The staff genuinely make you feel you are a guest in their home. The rooms are spotless and modern, although rather small; shower room has great power shower; sandwiches available until late into the night, SKY TV with Sports; wine, cup cakes, tea/coffee whenever you wish. The only addition I would ask id AirCon.....the room fan is excellent and quiet, but AirCon really is a MUST at these prices.

Changes towards the end of our trip made it necessary to book a last minute hotel in Glasgow. We wanted something close to the train station and chose the Grasshopper, both for price and location. We weren't too sure as we walked through the lobby, but once up at the hotel level, we were greeted by fresh cupcakes, very cordial and helpful staff and a clean spacious room.
Honestly, the only downside were the lack of air conditioning and the barn door on the bathroom.
Loved, loved the staff!

We like to vary or holiday destination so decided on a week in Glasgow (pre Commonwealth Games). Grasshopper sounded good so we booked. The hotel is definitely something different. The entrance is shared with a variety of businesses including Network Rail and Virgin Trains possibly due to the fact it's at the side of Central Station. The hotel is on the 6th floor so well away from the daily comings and goings of other staff in the building. The staff go out their way to be helpful. If you're not sure what to do or where to go they'll have more than one suggestion for you.
We ate in at the evening a couple of times. Food was great, atmosphere very cosy and friendly. The Grasshopper is a real change from the norm and when we return to Glasgow we will return to the Grasshopper definitely.

Room Tip: It's all good.

Loved this hotel. Very warm and friendly service, gorgeous rooms and perfectly central location. Loved all the personal touches, like leaving cupcakes and wine out for guests. Great city views, amazing pantry style breakfast in the kitchen. Would highly recommend.

This is a quirky little modern hotel in the center of Glasgow that gets just about everything right. Staff are attentive, knowledgeable, and incredibly hospitable. They really go the extra mile to ensure a good stay, right down to staging themed game nights in the hotel corridors to go along with the Commonwealth Games. The bed was very comfortable, plenty of pillows, and the bathroom was clean. The room had those extra little details I love that are often overlooked, like being able to turn off the room lights and control the fan settings without leaving bed. Breakfast was good and the hours for coming down to eat were generous. The room space might be considered small for luxury/boutique hotels, but we didn't come to Glasgow to stay in the room all day and we found it to be just fine.

Other reviewers mentioned the place is hard to find - really pay attention to the signs on the buildings because this hotel is on the 6th floor of the Caledonian Chambers building, but they do have a sign hanging over the sidewalk off the building. Also, try to get a room that isn't facing Union St. unless you don't have issues sleeping through the noise that sometimes accompanies groups leaving clubs at 3 am.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that isn't facing Union St. unless you don't have issues sleeping through...

We booked a hotel ad random in Glasgow not knowing what to expect.
And what a fantastic experience we had at the Glasshopper Hotel.
I phone to know if there was availability in the hotel.I needed a twin room. Unfortunately there were only to singles or a double.I told the receptionist I would think about it. When I phoned back to book a room, the receptionist, had phoned meanwhile for me to another
client, which was alone and had a twin, if he was okay to change room to a double, so I could have the twin. Which was okay for this guest.
I thought this is so pro-active and felt so much that he took care of me. I was touched by his care.
Once we arrived, it felt like coming home. Not only Sean the reception manager but also the ladies serving the breakfast.
Thank you for your care, love and hospitality.

By the way the room are very comfortable and nicely decorated as well ( ha ha )

This place is just lovely. Accessed through a door on Union St (right near Central Station), this hotel is delightful.

Rooms are modern, very clean and stylishly decorated and the staff (especially the Irish manager) are over the top accommodating.

Compared to the Ibis/ Jurys/ Travelodge/ cardboard cut out hotels out there - The Grasshopper is a real experience. Top marks.

Room Tip: Ask for one that backs on to Central Station.
