Housed within a modernist glass cube, citizenM Glasgow is a sleek and stylish hotel that celebrates classic European design and the latest 21st-century technology. A spiral staircase leads to the sprawling first-floor Living Room hub, where guests check in, eat, drink and relax. Bold red, black and white furnishings abound, with ’50s chairs by Ray and Charles Eames and groovy Panton-designed classics from the ’60s and ’70s. Art books, iMacs and free WiFi let you work, play and be inspired, and large picture windows look out at Glasgow’s skyline.
Bed and Bath
Guestrooms are compact, at 150 square feet, but they’re kitted out with cool furniture and gadgets by Dutch design agency Concrete. There’s a petite sink unit, and a separate rain shower is cocooned by frosted glass. The extra large kingsize beds (six feet by six feet) come with Frette linens and offer stretch-out room for couples — but sharing with a friend is tricky without an extra duvet. The Mood Pad lets you tinker with lights, temperature, TV and wake-up calls. Drop the electronic blinds and create an ambient lighting show.
The public spaces are large, sociable hubs full of iconic pieces by Vitra, Panton and Eames. Helpful “ambassadors” man the check-in and service areas, including a bar that serves cocktails and beers until 2 a.m. canteenM is a functional self-service food area with a wide choice of beverages, sandwiches, warm dishes, salads and sushi. At breakfast choose between continental (pastries, muesli, yogurt) and a full cooked Scottish breakfast of bacon, sausage, beans, tomatoes, potato scones and black pudding.
How to Get There
Been before. New what to expect. Was not a dissappiontment. Met at reception by a wonderful smiley french girl(sorry i didnt get her name). Very polite. Our room was beautiful/ clean. Every bit of space is utilised so well. Asked for additional pillows. Very prompt and polite. As we were having a great time we decided to pay the £29 for the later checkout. Glad we did as we didnt fancy carrying our suitcase around Glasgow as we were still enjoying our weekend. Highly recommend this hotel.
I have never stayed in such a modern hotel! The entire room (lights, blinds, TV, apple play etc.) could be controlled with an iPad that was easy to understand and use.The movie selection was also up-to-date with lots of new releases for free. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and sleek. It is also located right next to tons of bars, restaurants and shops and is a short walk away from Sauchiehall Street. Only thing I didn't like was the wet-room bathroom (no walled shower) made the entire floor wet after every use. Great 2-night stay overall!
The staff at the citizenM are so helpful, polite, friendly, and just all round brilliant. Not a single negative comment about my stay! Very happy and will definitely be staying again. 10/10 would recommend
Interesting hotel with clean rooms and an amazing lounge and bar. Great location.
Rooms are not large but are equipped with nice showers and hairdryer, a safe and somewhere to store luggage. More interesting hotel than most chains or budgets and a lovely breakfast with great service
Excellent technology that actually worked.
Very comfortable bed.
Check in quick - may be confusing for people unused to technology. (My granny was just like WTF)
Blinds that allowed room to be dark!
