“Good Location and that was about it.”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

I stayed here for one night on Satuarday 15th of March with my friend. Upon arrival of Apartment we were greeted with a lovely guy with no teeth. He opened the shutter as i had paid £8 to park my car overnight. He asked me to park in a unimosspible in a dark corner. Since my car was far to big to get in that space (Vauxhall Astra) i was told to park up against the wall wich wasnt even a parking space. so what did i pay for. I was booking into a one bedroom apartment and there was a total of 4 us. Before even asking how many are STAYING? he said there is far to many of you. I then explained are friends where here for a couple of drinks and to get ready with us but they will not be staying. NO GUESTS ALLOWED AT ANY TIME?? I have never heard anything so ridiculous in my life. I was paying for the apartment i should be aloud as many people as i like in my apartment at least until a certain time to stop people stayinging over. He ended up letting our friends in for an hour as i explained there acomidation wasnt ready yet.

Aprtment was standerd nothing exciting for the money we paid. 2 of everything glasses, forks, spoons etc so there was no way i could have had friends for dinner anyway.

Later on in the evening after being out we had met a group of people staying in the same apartments. So we all arrived back at the Apertments together. The door was locked and we were greeted with another guy with a clip board. It was like a prison no one iscoming in now give me your keys and names. There is too many of yous and closed the doors in our face. Until we had explained that we were sating in diffrent apartmets etc he wouldnt let us in and left us in the cold and rain at 4am in the morning.

I then went upstair changed into warm clothes and came back downstairs to have a last cigarette to be accoused of a party and noise coming from my apartment when my friend was already asleep.

We had also booked late check out until 1pm to have a long lie and see some of Glasgow. We had 4 hours sleep as the light comming in through the blinds woke us up earlie and couldnt get back to sleep and also cleaners of the other apartments moving things noise and chatting. So we also wasted £30 for a late check out that we didnt even need.

Overall this apartment is Awful the only good thing is the location.

The concept of Glasgow Lofts is a good one- it was really nice to have a very spacious apartment instead of a hotel room. The couches were really comfy and the kitchen was huge!

However, it felt as if you were crashing at your friends flat whilst they were away and they were a bit behind on there DIY and Housework.

The wooden floors were very scuffed and needed replacing, the walls really needing painting, the cupboard had a thick layer of dust on it and when I had to retrieve my shoe from under the couch, it was clear nobody had hoovered under there in a while!

Nothing offensive if you really were in your mates house but housekeeping definitely not carried out very thoroughly.

That brings me on to the spa bath- lets just say it was clear when turning on the jets that they hadn't been used in a while-perhaps fill the baths up with cold water once a week and put the jets on to clean them out? That bit did offend me!

The service wasn't there either- check in and check out was minimal with a simple 'thanks' at check out when we handed in the key. No one asked how our stay was or I would have mentioned the bath! No tea or coffee provided in a ' luxury apartment' ?

However we were in Glasgow to get out and about and that's exactly what we did so at the end of the day we had a bed in a good location and a very spacious apartment. We also booked on late rooms so got a good rate.

There's definitely a market there for what they actually are, but maybe they should drop the pretence of luxury and be honest about it. Also, when check in isn't till 4pm- dust the cupboards and Hoover under the couches every so often would you please? It's not hard! Left with the distinct impression that no one really gives a crap which is a shame as the potentials there.

Stayed here at beginning of March for 2 nights.
Had a 1 bedroom apartment on floor 4
View wasn't great.....back of a Tesco store. But the location was great about 2 minutes walk into the main shopping area.
Bathroom lovely with jacuzzi bath.
Kitchen could do with few more utensils etc heating didn't come on very often, I went to Primark and bought a blanket for the living room.
Bed not comfortable at all, pillows like thin rocks.
Did smell of food in corridor and in apartment nothing some scented candles didn't sort though.
Enjoyed Glasgow but next time it will be a hotel for us!

Had an excellent stay at this hotel. The apartment was very nice and was very clean. We were on the 13th floor and had an excellent view of the city. The only fault with this hotel was the check in and check out time, I thought this was poor.

Just had a wonderful weekend in these apartments, fantastic views over Glasgow from the 13th floor! Apartments bright , airy, warm , comfortable . Security staff friendly and helpful, booked taxis for us and very helpful. Loads of hot water for showers etc, and very comfortable. So central and within walking distance of train station and bus station. Would highly recommend!

Room Tip: Go for a high floor as the views are amazing!

Booked this place for a couple nights shopping trip in the city.
Greeted by a rude security/reception man who layer down the law of what u can't do in there apartment!
The place was not as described in the bedroom there is a big hole in the wall were the door handle has gone thru the wall not even been repaired! We were on the 4th floor with poor view and the decor is shabby needs a good paint.
It all started when we went to go run a bath if we had hot water a jacuzzi bath is no use without water!!!!!! Two nights with no hot water isn't good!the receptionist did try his best but to had no luck! The heating never comes on and the place is cold.
I would not recommend the place at all I am afraid was very disappointed.

Just had two nights in a 2-bedroom apartment on the 4th floor. Arriving at 8pm on day 1, the first thing that hit us was the terribly strong smell of various foods in the corridor emanating from the other apartments which seeped into ours. Once in the apartment we then had to contend with the fact that this was clearly not a none-smoking one! So, first thing the next morning, we went out to buy scented candles and air freshener. On the plus side, the location is not too bad and the beds are comfortable and Craig really does try his best as front of house. On the downside, the view was awful, walls were grubby, rooms very stark and soulless, the floors were scuffed, kitchen surfaces sticky and the plug in the master bathroom would not work properly, so impossible to try out the spa bath. Paid the 5 quid for the daily internet access but then could not get the correct password from the front desk... Overall, the apartment was very tired and in dire need of some TLC.
