Stylish and comfortable, except the beds. I'm 6'5'' and a double is a struggle. Close to Subway for easy city access. Free parking and helpful reception staff. Overall no real issues, does exactly what is says on the tin.

The place is impressive to look at from the outside.. The rooms are really basic but at a reasonable price. The food on match day was really bad.. I noticed staff coming in with a box of multi-pack beer as tho it was got at tesco for £10 and sold for £3.50 a bottle..

Good Morning Thank you for your review, unfortunately it appears you have posted this review under the wrong hotel, we have no Tesco anywhere within distance to the hotel, our local supermarket is Asda. In addition you can review our many reviews below and will understand whilst we cannot change our external look which so many of our guests mention,...

This place reminded us of the old motels back in the days, would t call it a 'hotel'. The place was swarming and busy with one elevator over trafficked. The room was old and not on a good way. Very simple and small and there was a strong smell of perfume trying to disguise the bad smell. We immediately checked...

Good Evening I note your comments with regards to the hotel, following redevelopment last year all area within the hotel have been redevelopment fully so I can assume that you have reviewed the hotel from previous owners. In addition there is no record of your check in . With best wishes Graham Urquhart General Manager

the hotel is reasonable, rooms OK, beds are a bit tired, small bathrooms, but the staff are great. The breakfast cooked to order is lovely. The evening food in the restaurant is good. Ribeye steak was tender but if you like medium rare ask for very rare!

Initially found and booked this place on bookings.com then when I visited hotel website directly, found much better deal. Liked this hotel a lot. Quite close to Ibrox, so many football supporters here on Friday night and streets busy on Saturday. An easy walk for SECC and science museum, so good deal for that. Room and shower great, staff friendly,...

We stayed here for a single night to attend a concert in town and we were delighted with the hotel and facilities. The building itself doesn't look very inviting but the interior is clean and modern.

Glasgow Urban has many good points.The rooms are very modern, spacious and have everything you need,including decent WiFi. The staff appear to be efficient and pleasant.
