“No alcohol available at this hotel”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

Stayed here for one night. Fantastic location opposite Central station. In amongst plenty of bars and eating establishments. Perhap this is fortunate as although the hotel has a lovely bar area, there is a sign up at the reception desk saying alcohol cannot be consumed in the hotel. Not sure why this is, but I can only presume it would be something to do with the lack of a drinks licience. Rather strange for a hotel. They must surely be losing money on this! Anyway, apart from that, the hotel room was adequate. Resembled a Travelodge or Premier Inn type room. Next door was an Indian restaurant called Bombay Blue. Not sure if this is actually part of hotel, but it had similar fairy lighting in the window so might well be. This was a superb restaurant. We had the buffet at £12.95 and it was fantastic, (although they do have an a la carte menu aswell). Plenty of choice (starters, mains and a few deserts) and loads of flavours. Bottle of wine was £13.50. Very reasonable. I would definately recommend it. On the whole, this 3* hotel was fine. Handy for shops and bars. Just a pity we weren't made aware that they couldn't serve alcoholic drinks prior to booking. Not that I am a big drinker, but I do like a nightcap before I retire to bed after a hard day shopping!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the main road could be a bit noisey if you are a light sleeper

Stayed here last night, hotel is lovely and in a great location and was a great value for money. Definitely request a room to the back of the hotel as we were on the first floor overlooking the main road and the noise was awful and we didn't sleep well cause of it! Would definitely stay again just in a different room!

I stayed for a couple of nights at this hotel. The hotel had recently been found to be selling alcohol without a license and so they are unable to serve alcohol or let you drink alcohol on the premises.

The door to the bathroom was too big for the door frame so you had to just wedge it as shut as possible

I ordered a cooked breakfast but due to a mix up between the waitress and the chef it was not cooked. Unfortunately, rather than make the breakfast the chef went in the huff with the waitress and didn't bother. The waitress didn't tell me any of this until I had given up waiting and went to leave.

the staff had been very helpful but i needed a nice breakfast to get me on my way rather than just smiling faces.

We booked the hotel for a short midweek break for my 50th Birthday. Location is excellent, right next to Central Station. Staff very pleasant. Our 3rd floor room was compact but clean and tidy. We had twin beds - I found it comfy but hubby didn't!!
Had expected it to be noisy but it wasn;t;; maybe that was due to us being round the back though.
The handwash/shower gel smelt nice in the bathroom!
We had booked bed and breakfast so were very disappointed when we went down for breakfast the first morning to discover piles of used crockery on all the tables and only 1 member of staff rushed off her feet.
Breakfast selection was poor on both days; cold meats and cheese left out on the table in extremely hot weather. As vegetarians, we opted for cornflakes and fruit juice!
Would recommend that they invest in some better quality loo roll - thin, cheap stuff doesn't really fit with the overall feel of the hotel.
Will use this hotel again.

Room Tip: Ask for a back room; its probably much quieter than a front one!

We stayed at Artto when visiting Glasgow to watch Bon Jovi at Hamden Park and spending a few days sight seeing. The hotel is a great place to stay, just over the road from the central train station, train out to Hamden Park takes about 10 minutes, and the hotel is very centrally based with plenty of bars, restaurants and shops within walking distance. Our room 308, could do with repainting but was very clean, large comfortable bed. Plenty of hot water, good shower, large soft towels. Not over large but plenty big enough, with lots of storage. The breakfast was very good. With all the basics covered, staff extremely helpful. We booked the city sightseeing open top bus online before we travelled and used this to travel round the city getting on and off at the various sights. If we went to Glasgow again we would definitely say here again. Great value for money

The hotel is in the heart of the city of Glasgow known as City Centre. It's located on Hope Street. The hotel is good & staff is very polite & helpful. Try to book in advance & don't forget to haggle. There rates keep changing so better book earliest. Rooms are good but a couple of rooms are bit tiny so better check before confirmation.
You can book the room with breakfast facility. Scottish breakfast is worth to have.
There's a bar & an indian restro Bombay Blue on the ground floor.
Overall, its a good hotel & provides value for money.

Room Tip: Look for rooms on 2nd & 3rd floor with road side view. No swimming pool in hotel.

We were looking for an inexpensive hotel close to Central Station before catching a train to London and Artto fitted the bill. Small but our room had everything that we needed. Nice little bar on the ground floor and close to restaurants etc. We were the only ones in the restaurant for breakfast in the morning and the food and service were fine. Good value for the money.
