Central location; good price

Hotel is conveniently located on argyle street, very close to central station. in spite of this, we found the room to be very quiet - we stayed over the weekend. plenty of pubs & restaurants nearby. room was perfectly adequate. buffet-style breakfast was good.

Overnight stay

I was a bit wary of booking this hotel as i had heard previous bad reports about the condition of the rooms and also the type of clientel that use it.
i must say i was pleasantly surprised by the room i was allocated it was large with two standard sized beds well furnished and with a large flat screen tv on the wall, the bathroom was also quite big with a shower over the bath. had to wait for about ten minutes in the morning for breakfast as the hotel was full and everybody seemed to have gone at the same time. however it was worth waiting for as it was a help yourself buffet with all the usual cereals and cooked breakfast items. very friendly staff , will definitely use this hotel again if the price is right

Third stay at alexander thomson

This is the third time we have stayed in the hotel, and each time we can't quite believe it is such great value for money. the location is superb, very central and great for any aspect of glasgow life. the staff are always so helpful and the breakfasts are amazing. there was only one point about our stay, the room was very warm and the windows were very heavy. if i had not been with my partner i would not have been able to open the windows. i will definately continue to use this hotel when i visit glasgow.

Glasgow visit - november 2009

Room was small. it had one chair for a double room with two occupants. i requsted anothr chair from reception but this was not provided. there was no shaving point in the room which was unusual. unfortunately some of the guests were a little rowdy and we were wakened on three of our four nights by individuals talking loudly as they passed in the corridor on their way to their rooms. there was also a lot of traffic on argyle street throughout the night.
