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.
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).
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.
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.
