This is a plea, not only to the Mint Hotel but, to most hotels. We like to hang up jackets, coats, scarfs, hats, bags, etc. on coat hooks. We also like to hang up towels robes, soap bags, etc. on hooks in the bathrooms. The Mint Hotel didn’t have any coat hooks and only had two hooks in the bathroom. This seems a fairly trivial complaint but it is so annoying having to leave stuff on the floor when few hooks would be much appreciated.
Anyway to the review. We enjoyed our stay at the Mint Hotel. Check-in was quick with the staff attentive and pleasant. The room was small but comfortable but view to the north from our first floor room was not the best I’ve seen. The air-conditioning took an age to change temperature, therefore we were too hot at night and room was cold when we came in from the cold outside. Would have preferred a large TV rather than the apple mac system provided. The bathroom was small with superb shower and good lighting (this is another gripe: poor bathroom lighting for us contact lens wearers). Breakfast was good. A large cooked breakfast menu and good continental buffet, but please allow us to finish our cereal before bringing our cooked breakfast. The hotel’s position is bit out of the way for the city centre, requiring taxis, but good situation for the SECC.
Overall we enjoyed our stay but will probably stay nearer the city centre next time

We had stayed here a couple of times before and found it to be amazing value for money and we were happy to return when visiting family in Glasgow - however we were shocked by the price rises as of January! The hotel underwent a chain rebranding (from City Inn to Mint) in January 2011 but the hotel was NOT refurbished and remained exactly the same as it was before the rebranding - sadly the prices did not remain the same. Room prices jumped by an average of 25%, they also now charge £20 per night extra for a river view room (this used to be free when available) and now parking has gone from free to £5 overnight or per stay. This was all a bit of a surprise and way above inflation rates and (as the hotel has not been refurbished) this seems very harsh and was a bit of a shock.............
HOWEVER..... it is still a good hotel - bang on the SECC site and a short stroll from the IMAX - and still represents good value for money based on other hotels in the city. The rooms are calm and clean and the showers are fantastic. The rooms are a little small, but not cramped, and the beds are comfy with opening windows for fresh air. The restaurant has good value fixed-price menus with good food and I've never found the staff rude as a couple of reviewers have suggested. There does seem to be an issue with front desk communication (on a couple of stays we have asked for simple things - more milk, tea etc - and despite assurances that we would have it sent up.... no sign of it!)
If I had not stayed before the HUGE price jump, and sneaky extra charges like the parking and supplement for the river view, I would be content with the value for money and even with all that I am sure that we will stay again.
***OH - handy tip - check out the Trip Advisor room availability for this hotel because there are better deals available than are shown on the hotels own website****

We only stayed at the Mint Hotel because the Crowne Plaza was full but what luck that turned out to be. Clean, bright, friendly, helpful staff and excellent food. The rooms were small, ideal for one a little crowded for two, but very comfortable and the window opened. Great that they have smoking rooms. We had lunch in the restaurant the first day and it was so good we went back for dinner. Breakfasts are freshly cooked and as good as any I have had. We will definitely be back.

Good location within 5 minutes walking distance of the SECC. Clean and comfortable rooms with Apple Mac and free wiifi. Not generous with amount of tea and coffee in room and slow to provide more when asked. If you want to eat after a show at the SECC we reccomend "Yen" oriental restaurant opposite the hotel. Open until late and very fast service and good food. Check you haven't been put in a smoking room- they smell of smoke.

We have just returned from a great trip to the mint hotel and really enjoyed it, the service we got from the staff was warm and helpful from the receptionist to the waiting on staff. Although I do agree the room was on the small size it was very well laid out and bright and airy. We had an amazing view overlooking the river which was the icing on the cake. The hotel was very busy on the last morning due to the strictly come dancing tour but the staff were very efficient and never flapped. As we were in glasgow for the football location was key and the hotel didn't disappoint. Will defiantley use this hotel again when we come to glasgow.
