Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Alamo is in an unbeatable location in the west end on a lovely, quiet street. Our room was very comfortable, but a little on the small side. The lounge/breakfast room is good. Breakfast itself is standard fare. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

Oh my god! This place is perfection!!! The host/receptionist which I sadly didn’t catch her name - was the kindest and lovely soul! All staff very helpful. And location prime west end of Glasgow. The room is so regal - we had room 2, and our bath plug was broke but they automatically upgraded up to another room which was very kind. We will be back next time in the city!!! Amazing !

What an amazing find this has been. I have stayed in the majority of hotels and guesthouses in Glasgow over the years of living here but this blows all others out the water. A peaceful, relaxing and quintessentially Scottish establishment with the most wonderful and welcoming staff. The rooms are authentic, quiet and comforting. The breakfast was plentiful and tasty. The location is ideal, a 20 yard walk into Kelvingrove. You really do feel like you have stepped back in time here - we will definitely be visiting again.

"We have just spent a night at the Alamo and despite the name it was a lovely Victorian Guest House with not a cowboy in sight. The room was amazing and the bed was so comfortable that we nearly slept in for breakfast this morning. The staff were welcoming, helpful and coped with our lateness this morning very well. A lovely quiet location. We will be back "

We enjoyed a lovely quiet room, with a comfy bed, proactive and friendly staff, and a fantastic breakfast! So many hotels in Glasgow review badly because of noise from the street and from other guests, and we picked this place simply based on reviews mentioning it as being quiet. It was exactly this, an oasis of peace and calm and a joy to come back to after shopping, eating, drinking etc. our new go to place in town … thank you!

Fantastic located Boutique Hotel right across the street from Kelvingrove Park and the vivid neighbourhood of Fienneston with Pubs and restaurants. The Alamo Guesthouse is decorated with stylish scottish pieces and furniture. Tasty breakfast is served, both british and continental and thank God NO buffet! The staff is competent, the atmosphere warm and friendly.

We chose Alamo Guest House for our first visit to Glasgow based upon reviews we read. We are happy we did. Alamo is located in a quiet neighborhood, a short taxi ride (6-8 min) from Queen Street Station. The rooms were nice and ours (#2) was comfy and well-appointed. The included breakfast was fantastic. But the real jewel at Alamo is the young staff. Tamina and Lucy helped us immensely. They gave advice, they booked dinners and taxis, and they gave us tips to enjoy our stay. We loved feeling that they cared for our needs. We had two fabulous dinners at local venues during our stay (based on staff recommendations) because Alamo is located near the great restaurant scene along Argyll Street. Lebowskis (the dude abides) had great pub food and beer. Porter + Rye offered great (really, really great) steaks. Both were within a five-minute walk. Don't bring a car here - there's very limited parking. We understand there's a new owner in charge recently and we are pleased to say that they seem to "get it." They prioritize caring for their guests. That's a good thing.
