“Quieter than an ant's flatulence”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

I hate hotels with thin walls, echoey corridors and zero soundproofing against the outside world. So I booked this place with some trepidation: it's on one of Glasgow's busiest thoroughfares and many fellow guests would (like us) be there for the nightlife. To be honest, I was anticipating external and internal noise until 4am or so.

But it has to be the most sound-proofed hotel I have ever stayed in. We couldn't hear a peep from our neighbours; there was absolutely no noise from outside; any sound from the corridors was muffled down to almost nothing. And this was in the party capital of Scotland on both a Friday and Saturday night.

When ants pass wind, the noise level is 0.0000235 decibels. The average noise level at this hotel was 0.0000000000438 decibels - that's a billion times less loud than the average ant's bum burp. We had a great stay.

Hi misterpastry

Thank you for your lovely review of your stay at Premier Inn Glasgow City (Buchanan Galleries). We are very lucky in that when they were building our lovely new hotel they listened to alot of guest feedback and really put alot of effort into soundproofing the rooms. In this hotel we are lucky that no rooms back onto the noisy delivey alley or lifts and that streetnoise can't be hear through out triple glazed windows from the street. Our doors are thick to prevent sound in and out of the room. The doors also release special bars which lock out any noise when the door is closed!

Its lovely to hear this all helped make your stay so comfortable with us.

We all really enjoyed your facts about ant's flatulance!! Very interesting, the team all enjoyed this information during a recent meeting.

Thanks again and I hope we can welcome you back soon

Warm Regards

My wife and I returned back from Glasgow last night having spent three nights at the Buchannan Galleries Premier Inn and we were not disappointed! We were allocated a room on the 16th floor with excellent views across the city (day & night). The room was very clean and comfortable. The service of the reception staff and of that in the restaurant was very good - nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was a very good and their Premier breakfast was of a premier standard - not hand a full English like that in a while (except at home!).
Superbly located - 3 minutes from Bus station, 5 minutes from Queen Street rail station and 10 minutes from Central station means that acess from all over the UK is possible with the minimum of fuss.
We would definitely stay there again ? The staff are a credit to their management and company - 5 stars all round.
Called a Premier Inn and lives up to their title!

Room Tip: Get a higher floor, if possible, if you want the panoramic views over the city.

I felt guilty almost staying here for the 35 pound I paid to stay!
The hotel is immaculate and our room was spotless. Even the parking they direct to you is very close by. I could see my car from the window of our room. Check in easy just input our name in the usual automated check in systems. Stayed on floor 10 so even a good view of Glasgow. Needed a taxi and the desk ordered one and it was there within 5 mins. The location is perfect for Glasgow city centre. You walk right out side and there are all the shops and there is a Costa/Starbucks nearby if you want to eat somewhere different for breakfast. We stayed overnight on a Sun and the parking I think was 8 pound. The car park is very secure as to access you need to scan your parking ticket.

We were visiting Glasgow for the weekend, and this met our needs perfectly. We had a family room on the 15th floor. The kids each had a single bed (rather than sharing a sofa bed, which is often the case in some hotels). It was spacious, comfortable and quiet. Great location for shops and restaurants, and at about £90 per night for a flexible rate, I though it was pretty good value. Enthusiastically recommended!
