Ideal location for Glasgow nightlife

Park Inn Hotel Website

Cosy seating in the  bar area.  Liked the lighting too, didn’t make it seem like a hotel at all.

park inn room

Large bedroom

Fruit and water were waiting for us in the room, which was well-lit – the main room light can be turned on/off from bed which is always a bonus and mood/ambient lighting and 2 bright reading lights were at either side of the bed.
2 pillows as well, which is handy for anyone who likes to read in bed.

Great location

It may look noisy being on a junction with buses passing but it was actually surprisingly quiet with double insulated windows to keep the period features alive and the noise out.

Overall the Park Inn provides good-value, modern and efficient accommodation in the heart of Glasgow. The gym was small but a good selling-point as you don’t come across too many city-centre hotels with these facilities, and afterwards you can have a meal in the restaurant or simply relax in the atmospheric bar, where they have lager, cider and Guinness on tap, they also stock some Scottish beers and a number of continental lagers and spirits. Breakfast choices were good and the bar and restaurant areas were kept clean both during the night and morning of our visit.

Although it might not be the most scenic location in the world it is very central and very handy for transport links – buses stop at each end of the street on Hope St and Renfield St and it’s a mere 5 min walk from both Queen St and Central stations; a number of good pubs and restaurants are also only within a 5 minute walking distance such as: La Tasca, Tony Macaroni, Lloyds, BlueDog, Cup, Fratelli Sarti, Wagamama, Nippon Kitchen, Opium, Charcoals, Burger  Meats Bun etc. Staff also suggested places nearby worth going for food and drink.

It’s also good to see that the period features of the building have been kept despite the modern makeover inside.  Excellent value for  money we think.

Rooms cost from £88 per night.
