9 reviews of The Radisson Blu Hotel Glasgow in English
I stayed here for a corporate function for just one night. I enjoyed a special rate of £110 for bed and breakfast.
The building itself is something of a landmark, with an atrium-like space at the front which forms the lobby and bar. It is very close to Glasgow Central station - take the Argyle Street exit and it is across the road. Staff were friendly and efficient throughout, especially the very helpful kilted doorman.
The rooms are achingly modern, and one surprise is that they have engineered wooden floors - no carpets. This does make it feel a bit spartan, a feeling reinforced by the dark wallpaper and pale furniture. Like many designer places, you had to hunt a bit for the facilities: the tea and coffee tray was in the wardrobe, and the complimentary slippers, hair-dryer, shoe-shine and laundry bags were in a drawer inside the bottom of the wardrobe. And because the bed was so large and the wardrobe doors opened outwards, it was actually quite fiddly to put things away. The other bugbear was the lighting - all a little dim (except in the bathroom, which was floodlit!).
Those are relatively minor gripes, but irritating all the same. On the plus side, the desk was spacious, the wifi was free and had a good connection and the bathroom was both large and spotlessly clean. I found my room reasonably quiet though traffic noise filtered in a little. The bed was huge and comfy. I slept as well as I ever do in a hotel. A nice touch was a choice of soft and firm pillows.
Breakfast the next day was the usual buffet: perfectly adequate but nothing special. They do a range of dishes to order (porridge, eggs in various styles) that might be a better bet. Staff were efficient and I was served good coffee and toast quickly.
Check-out was refreshingly fast, too, despite a small queue.
So I'd be happy to stay there again, but it's not the best modern hotel I've stayed in.
An excellent hotel in the very centre of Glasgow; rooms are spotless, staff are friendly, can’t complain there at all. One minor issue – Get rid of those Nespresso machines, they’re useless! ;)
The Radisson is one of the fancier hotels in Glasgow and it’s price tag reflects this. I’ve attended a few events here and the function halls are quite nicely laid out, with adequately sized reception halls and good visibility and access. The hotel rooms themselves are also very well decorated. It’s location, just north of the city centre, is excellent, with the main shopping and historic area just a short walk away; as well as the Cineworld cinema, which holds the Guiness World Record for being the tallest cinema in the world!
I have stayed at the hotel a few times and am always very impressed with the food and how quiet the rooms are considering that you are city centre.
The breakfast downstairs is well worth getting up for - the omlettes made to order is a personal fave of mine.
I haven’t stayed here but I attended functions in the evening.
The meals were very nice, nicely cooked and good portions. (Especially the tiramisu!) :-)
The house wines were included on our table and while the red wine was acceptable the white wine was to be avoided!
Toilets were clean and stylish.
Handily loacted for Glasgow Central Station.
This is my favourite hotel in Glasgow. From the slightly out-there exterior, to the clean lines of the rooms, it really is the nicest hotel in the city centre.
The rooms are quite small but well laid out and the bathrooms are fantastic, down to the heated floor. The Collage bar is beautifully designed, it isn’t as busy as it should be due to its just off the beaten track location.
The location, as it currently stands, is probably the only thing that’s wrong with this hotel. There are no stunning views, whichever room you stay in. Having said that, it is perfectly located for Glasgow’s shops and nightlife, and the area is on the up, with another luxury hotel planned close by.
the 5* radisson glasgow is situated on the longest street in scotland (if not uk) ! - standard radisson bars/rooms/restaurants/pool/gym (all good) - excellent conference facilities / friendly staff - haunt of local business community during week - 5mins walk to main shopping areas - although location is v busy during week as at very noisy road junction - across the road literally from main railway station and 10mins drive to glasgow airport
I had a lovely room, and pretty large for a city centre hotel, shame about the view, and street noise below, but apart from that, it was pretty comfortable. As always, my favourite thing about this chain is the interent being included in the price, so it’s simply check in and log on, none of the usual spend an hour giving them credit card details etc etc.
