Artto Hotel
Ranked #71 of 93 Hotels in Glasgow
Reviewed 15 May 2014

I stayed at the Artto for one night, visiting friends in Glasgow. The rate was very reasonable on a night where a large number of the hotels were fully booked or considerably more expensive. The hotel itself is located next to Glasgow’s main train station in a great central location.

Initial Impressions:
The reception and bar area provides a good initial impression – modern and fresh. Staff are friendly. The lift was unnervingly shaky and noisy (I took the stairs after the first trip).

The Room:
There was a slight stale/sour smell when initially entering (window required opening). The room was VERY small – the main door not even opening fully without touching the bed. There were a number of maintenance issues – missing bulbs on the wall, bed and shaving lights, light fitting detached from roof in bathroom, shower unit chipped. See photos. The room was clean. Bed was very uncomfortable. Sound proofing in the room was poor – largely as a result of it being located near the lift, and the door having a one inch gap at its base. There was also construction noise (hammering) for a number of hours late afternoon on the day of arrival.

Other:
Opting for the stairs over the lift, it was disappointing to see that it was at times used as a storage area (which I assume would be in breach of fire regulations). On retiring for the evening there was a large laundry bag half-blocking the stairs, and by late the following morning it had still not been removed.

This hotel is very well located, clean and despite having a pretty busy road right on the doorstep, we never had any noise issues. Our only complaint, is with the reception's staff (night shift). We received a call from them at 04:30 in the morning, where all we could hear was giggles and laughs.

Room Tip: Try booking the rooms facing north.

This hotel was ideal for our short stay in Glasgow because of its proximity to transport, shops and pubs. In addition, there is a superb Italian restaurant (La Lanterna) next door (didn't try the Indian attached to the hotel though). Staff helpful. The room was adequate and value for money even as a last-minute booking. No point in paying 10 quid for breakfast as there's countless cafes and coffee houses nearby. Four stars from me and I would consider staying again at the same price.

Pretty much got what you paid for - there was a construction site outside across the road so very loud and the mattress was all springs but it's cheap and clean and the hotel offers a great location and it's tidy and warm. Budget but ok wouldn't stay too long

whilst the hotel was in an ideal location and the reception/bar area was nice, that's where the pleasantries end. The room was dirty, the door did not lock from the inside and could easily have been opened from the outside with very little force. the lights above the bed did not work which meant having to have the large ceiling lights on or none at all. the shower was broken and did not stay in its holder. the seal on the window was broken and this meant the room was cold and drafty. the hotel was very noisy and the windows provided little noise cancelling from the outside. I would definitely not stay here again

ended up with free breakfast as well.

defo worth a stay

Loved this hotel staff were very helpful & friendly. The bar is always busy too so there is good atmosphere. The hotel is opposite glasgow central train station and in the centre of town so it's an ideal location. Will defo be back
