The Finest Hotels in Glasgow, Across All Price Ranges

I haven’t stayed at the Glasgow Hostelling Scotland location, but I’m recommending it here because of its great location and the fact that my previous stays at other Hostelling Scotland properties have been pleasant. cheap hotels in glasgow CitizenM is a boutique hotel that offers affordable luxury. Spending the night in this place is like visiting the future. In the lobby, you’ll find self-check-in kiosks, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be a helpful staff member around to answer questions or strike up a conversation with. The rooms are small cubes with a king-size bed, mood lighting, and a shower/bathtub combination that would not be out of place in a science fiction film. Guests can adjust the room’s temperature, lighting, window coverings, and TV channels on the iPad provided in their accommodations, or they can choose from a variety of pre-programmed options such as “Party,” “Business,” and “Romance.” In other words, when making plans, leave some wiggle room so you can play around with the features and customization options of your shiny new device. luxury passport holder

Artwork is displayed tastefully in the hotel’s public spaces, complementing the hotel’s tasteful design. The roomy lounge is furnished with sofas, armchairs, and a library of coffee table books. A bar with tasty drinks and interesting patrons can be found on the same floor. There’s a good chance that the hotel’s staff is responsible for much of the positive experience you had there. Despite the lack of quality vegan options, breakfast is also offered in the bar.

Standard Scottish Pubs

Going to The Alfred is like taking a trip through time (or, more accurately, it is the polar opposite of the CitizenM). The former hotel site, now a grand townhouse, is located in the city’s vibrant West End neighbourhood with views of Great Western Road. This is a great spot to base yourself while exploring the West End of Glasgow, as the University, Botanic Gardens, Kelvingrove Art Gallery, and the lively Byres Road are all within walking distance.

My room was a spacious double with a comfortable bed, a classic dresser, and a marble fireplace. Great Western Road and its surrounding trees were visible from my hotel room, as was the nearby pub, The Belle (no pub noise though). The hotel’s most interesting feature was not a guest room, but rather the hallway, with its carpeted staircase and displays of antique memorabilia. The innkeepers are serious antiques buffs, so they’ve transformed the property into a veritable museum. The owners are also responsible for the nearby successful gastropub and event venue, Oran Mor.

Inn at Argyll

Glasgow’s West End is home to the beautiful Argyll Hotel, a townhouse with tartan carpets and curtains, a daily Scottish breakfast, and a restaurant and pub connected to the hotel where guests can partake in pub quizzes and murder mysteries.

Benefits of staying at this hotel include easy access to Kelvingrove Park, the University of Glasgow, and Kelvingrove Art Gallery. From the airport, the 77 bus will drop you off right in front of the hotel; it’s a bit slower than the Airport Bus Service, but well worth it if you’re staying here.
