Staff here are very friendly and accommodating. Quite a small room for 3 people. Some of the lights in our room weren't working, light shade had cobwebs on it and the toilet doesn't flush very well. On the positive the beds are comfortable and it's very central. Ok to stay for a couple of nights.

I can't think why there have been so many negative reviews about this place. It's a good little, fairly inexpensive city centre hotel. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful giving us local information and ideas of places to visit. Ok so there is no lift. For me it wasn't a problem but I can understand that it may...

Terrible front desk service. Would not recommend. I was inadvertently charged on approximately 50 euros in excess on my card in advance without permission. Do not give this hotel your card details - not even to secure a booking

I'm not sure if many of the other bad reviewers here paid more for a small double room than I did, or if because of the Rennie Mackintosh name they were expecting WAY more, but for 49 pounds, at a weeks notice, for a Saturday night, in Central Glasgow this is certainly a cheap and cheerful option.

The small double room was clean, modern and central location. BUT very small and the walls need filling and repainting. The chair in the room has seen better days also. The wifi is too slow for a city hotel. I was disappointed after seeing it on bookings.com.

The hotel is in a very good location and has clean rooms. The problem is that there is zero soundproof, a lot of noise from the doors opening and closing is coming into the rooms.. The Wi-Fi was poor as well.

Our stay was lovely. The room was a small double room, the shower pressure was awesome. The room was nice and clean and the reception staff were welcoming. Our room was actually ready a few hours before their check in time, which meant we got to check in early. They have free unlimited wifi which also helped.

We stayed just one night as going to a show. Very good location. Very compact double room but it was warm and comfortable. Plenty hot water. We had a quiet room. Breakfast was adequate. No toiletries supplied.
