Great hotel. We arrived 2 hours before our check in time and we were just hoping to leave our luggage and come back later, but they allowed us to check into our room early! Room was nicely decorated with complementary tea cakes and hot chocolate. Breakfast was very good, a mix of buffet and menu options. Only complaint would be...

We have been looking for a reasonable priced hotel in Glasgow for some time, now our son is studying there. We thought we were looking at Premier Inn's and Holiday Inn Express for the next 3 years, but I came upon this and what a treat. Funky and modern, clean and fresh, great staff, and what a super restaurant. Love...

Unprepossessing from the outside, this hotel makes up for it in spades from the front door to the elegant bedrooms. The highlights are its exceptionally helpful and knowledgeable staff; the welcoming atmosphere everywhere; the wide-ranging and a delicious food in the restaurant and the Tunnocks Teacakes in the bedroom! One of my guests was concerned about driving the the north...

The Urban Hotel is a great place to stay. The decor is brilliant, imaginative and high quality with documentary style photos of the people of 40's - 60's Glasgow throughout.

Agree with all previous reviews great hotel, good food, good breakfast, nice rooms not much to fault. The area will be the issue I think people will mention but I would still stay again. Couple of points shower takes an age to get hot and tea cakes in the room are the best idea ever.
