Stayed for one night on Saturday 11th May. We had tickets to the Ricky Burns boxing match. Made the booking through Booking.com website and got a great price for the double room. The location of the hotel is brilliant if you want to be in the city centre, it's a 5 minute walk around the corner from the Buchanan Galleries... More

A good hotel. Nice rooms, good location and very clean. Strangely difficult to find though, its above the restaurant after the Holiday inn. Easily walk-able to lots of central bars and restaurants. Only recommendation I can give is that the holiday inn next door is a only a few pounds more expensive and is much nicer!
