“excellent position for a city trip”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

Visited this hotel last year, went back again in January 2012. Different room this time - very clean and the beds were very comfortable but the the bathroom was very tired looking, reported broken loo seat and they did come and tighten it up but it was very tatty. Breakfast was again supberb and staff very helpful & friendly. This is a great hotel real value for money, found it even nearer to the shops this year and transport around the city is first class. Possibly some of the rooms need a bit of TLC but it is a clean and well run hotel. Would go again.

I always believed in 1st reaction the last impression. Well Aleaxander Thomson Hotel had "WOW" factor for us. We had been for a small break to glasgow, our first visit. We were excited to be in the land of scotches. The best part of the hotel is its location- In the middle of the city centre. Every thing is walking distance.
Nice pretty room. Only a bit small but what the heck, its clean and hygenic. The bathroom was neat. Everyday you get your towels, Water and cookies replenished. The breakfast was scrumptous with few egg preparations, croissants, baked beans, juices, tea/coffee, bacon, yoghurt, parantha etc etc. And of course the Muffins.
The staff were helpful and they are quite caring. Wonderful small hotel to stay. I would definitely stay in my next visit.

Room Tip: Book in advance. Ask for a room with the main road facing. However its less noisier.

I've been in this hotel one Saturday night for a weekend in Glasgow. The room (602), was really clean and the bathroom too. The breakfast of Sunday was very good with a good range of choices. The location is close to the Central Station, few hundred meters, perfect when travelling to Glasgow just for a short weekend: everything (restaurants, pubs, shops,...) is close to the hotel. I was not satisfied about only 3 things:
1-the heating in the bathroom was not working and its window was not sticked perfectly to the frame, so in the morning the bathroom was really cold;
2-the room no.602 is one floor upper than the last floor of the elevator (5th), so if you have a heavy luggage, it's very tricky to get there: a narrow corridor and a spiral staircase;
3- the room 602 (double) is small for two persons with big luggages, it's better to ask a bigger room if you're two.

Stayed here in January , budget hotel in a great location. The hotel has seen better days but at £35 a night it's priced about right. Room had a T.V. With free view and. The room was large with a very comfy bed. Had a good nights sleep but was quite a bit of noise from the street. Breakfast was ok, service was not great in the breakfast lounge. Toilet and shower were a little in need of a refresh. Receptionist team were very helpful. Parking on street if free after 6pm and before 8am. Would stop again if only for location and convenience. There are a loads of bars and restaurants nearby and also a tesco's express shop a few doors along from the hotel.

Room Tip: Best rooms for quiet stay would be away from the front as there is a lot of street noise.

We spent two nights at the Alexander Thompson. The room was large and well decorated and we had the luxury of a full size bath in a sparkling bathroom. There was a problem with the TV when we arrived, the counter staff attempted to sort it out without success but gave us the controller to the TV in the lounge. The next day when we returned the TV had been replaced. The breakfast was average but overall we were very impressed by the value for money for this very central location.
