"over priced rot"
Go somewhere else the prices here make relaxation a complete chore, Its like being in the most overpriced hell hole on earth. I went out after spending £27-00 for 2 glasses of wine in the bar. How this place can get away with this is beyond me.. also look on the receipt there is space for a tip... you wish
"Ok not 5 star though. "
Just back from an overnight stay. Hotel was nice and clean. We had a standard room, if you can pay the extra for business class or superior then I would. We had a superior room on our visit to the Edinburgh one and it was far better than the standard room we had this time. Miles more comfortable bed, better pillows and duvet. The outside the hotel was quite noisy, heard traffic most of the time and being right across from a construction site that started work at 8am didn't make it easy to have a long lie. Then being woken again by a visit from the maid at 9am even though you are checking out that day was a bit odd!!! Almost as odd as 1 set of the bath towels being in the wardrobe and not the bathroom (only found them after the shower!!) as didnt think to look in the wardrobe for towels! The bed wasn't very comfy either and a duvet that only fitted the size of the matress meant a fight over the duvet most of the night!! The staff are very nice and the location is fab however the little things let the hotel down, defo not a 5 star, id say 3.5 for our stay so a little disappointed after the brilliant stay we had in Edinburgh. Discounted car parking good tho.
"Rough Around the Edges"
I stayed here for one night while in Glasgow as one of a group of five friends. The location of this hotel is excellent. It is less than a five minute walk from Central Station, approximately seven minutes walk from Argyle Street Metro Station and approximately ten-fifteen minutes walk from Glasgow Queen Street Station and the main shopping thoroughfare of Buchanan Street. Check in was swift but I was a little startled to be asked if I could avoid certain times at breakfast as they were particularly busy then. I can think of better ways of letting guests know about peak times while letting the guest and their particular circumstances determine when they take breakfast. I made my way to my room on the fifth floor and, at first first glance, my room appeared large and stylish. However, upon setting my bag down I began to notice that my room was decidedly dreadful. There was a large and unsightly stain on the carpet and another one down the side of the bed. The chair was worn and filthy, the wallpapering badly finished and the wooden furniture looked as though a child had been let loose in the room with a hatchet. I met my friends in the atrium bar and we compared notes. I was the only one on the fifth floor. They said that their rooms were not nearly as bad as mine but definitely not five star standard. I found the manager who apologised and informed me that he would investigate why I had been checked into that room as they were aware that it had been damaged by a previous guest. I was moved to another room on the fifth floor, minus the stains and grotty chair but with the same worn woodwork. A bottle of red wine was delivered to my room by means of an apology but a room worth £125 per night would have been preferable. Upon rejoining my friends in the atrium bar, I realised that I was the only one who had not been given a card entitling me to 5% discount on purchases when I checked in. At this point we had a good laugh about it all and agreed that the chap who checked me in just didn't like little Irish lassies! The atrium bar was nice but we all found it quite cold when we returned for drinks after dinner that night. The next morning we met for breakfast at 10. The dining room was busy and the waiting staff stretched. There was a decent selection of well prepared offerings, as one would expect, but it definitely was not a stand out breakfast. A grumpy waitress took our order for tea, coffee, toast and eggs (except scrambled eggs which were included in the self-service buffet) and we helped ourselves to everything else we required from the buffet. This caused a bit of a faff when our eggs arrived to the table as they had to be transferred from the plates they arrived on to the plates that we had picked up at the self-service buffet. We then had to attend to some empty plate gathering and stacking and attempt to attract the attention of someone to relieve us of the gathered crockery so we could make enough room to eat comfortably. After breakfast I packed and went to check out only to be met with the longest check-out queue I have ever seen. It took ten minutes to reach the top of the queue, which was actually a relief because it looked like it would take much longer. My experience was not what I would expect from a Radisson Blu property. Despite the convenient location I would not return.
"Looks very good but with public gym "
The hotel looks very good, the room was comfortable and clean. Good service and good location Close to Central station and to the center. The only wrong thing is the public gym and pool, from an hotel like this the expectation is to have one restricted to hotel guess.
I've stayed here a few times in the past but must say I would possibly hesitate to stay here again. I stayed for two nights and there was never more than one of the three lifts working throughout this time - for the first 36 hours not even a sign up and there were generally lots of folk queuing for the one lift. The room was really nice with a comfortable bed but the shower pressure was non-existent again - I mentioned this previously but it's still the same. Why are they not addressing this issue' - an upgrade of the pump system would sort this. There were four of us all staying on different floors and everyone had the same problem. I would say the staff were very friendly and the breakfast was excellent. It's also a very welcoming bar area.
