“City centre haven!”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

Visiting Glasgow for my cousin's wedding my partner and I stayed in the Radisson for four nights and were not left disappointed. The hotel is located perfectly beside Central station and is a short walk from the city centre - cinema, bars, shopping mall and pretty much everything you could want.

The hotel concierge organised a taxi for us and it arrived quickly, which was brilliant seeing as we were a bit unsure of where we were going but got there in plenty of time (Glasgow really has some beautiful venues, the wedding day itself was wonderful!). All staff members were as helpful as could have been asked of them and the hotel itself was perfect, from the super-soft sheets and free wi-fi to the adjoining gym and pool (which although busy at times was really kitted out with top of the range equipment).

Would definitely recommend most to stay there when visiting the city (maybe suited a bit more to couples and older people than those with small children as the bar area is right in the lobby - but that can definitely be a positive depending on how you look at it) - you won't find a better base for your trip.

This is a very nice modern hotel, in an excellent location on Argyle Street, in the middle of Glasgow City Centre. The hotel is very central for the main shopping / restaurants in Glasgow - Argyle Street / Buchanan Street / Princess Square / Merchant City etc..

I have stayed in this hotel at least once per year for the past 5 years. The standard of room and service has always been consistently good, Clean rooms, friendly staff (excellent Concierge service) and the food has always been excellent.

It is a two minute walk from Glasgow Central Train Station, and a 10 minute walk from Queen Street Train Station - the two main train stations in Glasgow.

(FYI the Airport bus stops on Bothwell Street which is also a two minute walk from the hotel. The Airport bus runs every 15 minutes and takes around 15 / 20 minutes from airport to the City Centre).

We normally enjoy staying here. However, on this occasion we were a tad disappointed because two of the lights in our room weren't working and nor was the TV. (Not that we watch TV much, but the News is always welcome in the morning). The bed was brick hard - think sleeping o. Cement bricks. Today's top tip -avoid room 559.... Unless you like ultra hard mattresses.

Hello Karenina_J,
Thank you for your recent Tripadvisor review
Thanks for the honest appraisal of your stay with us at the Radisson Blu Hotel Glasgow. It sounds like we could have provided a higher level of service during your visit. The 2ns,3rd and 4th floor have softer matresses than the 5th floor which may be more to your liking. I have passed on the information regarding the TV issues and in early 2014 all TV's in the hotel are being upgraded.
I hope this experience will not detract you from choosing Radisson Blu and hope you will choose Radisson Blu in the future.
Kind Regards,
Victoria

This was our second visit to this hotel and the best by far. I was there with my Husband who was in Glasgow on business. The room was large and extremely quiet despite being in the centre of Glasgow. I really could not fault the service we received it was excellent nothing was too much trouble. I can’t comment on the restaurant food as we only eat breakfast but that was good, an extensive range with continental as well as an English breakfast. Also a great base for sightseeing in Glasgow almost next door to Central Station and very close to the Glasgow subway (aka the Clockwork Orange due to the fact its round and orange, according to the locals). Well worth a trip just to experience it. A great few days and would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: Inside rooms facing the inner part are the quietest.

Can't beat location, room was very nice, king bed but still lots of space. Inexpensive given location and quality. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Short five pound cab ride to Kelvingrove
