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
Good on general but I'm disappointed that they didn't tell me about my lost clothes! Position good but staff not so friendly. Nice rooms but probably not adequate for couples. I dind't try so many other things from the hotel.
This is one of the funkiest hotels I have stayed at in the UK. Check in is about 30 seconds long with no reception just easy to follow check in terminals.
Someone is on hand to help just in case.
All the rooms are the same so we choose one on the 5th floor it turned out to be a corner room which was massive.
Beds are right up against the wall so makes it awkward for the one on the wall side to go to the loo without waking the other person up.
Bath room was massive with both rain forest shower and normal hand held.
There no irons in the rooms both an ironing room at the end of every floor.
The 1st floor food area is a hive of activity with guest eating, people working, meeting people or just chilling in a relax atmosphere.
All of this was done to the background of some serious rare groove and funky tunes marvellous.
Location is very good as a base to walk to the shops and malls 10 mins away all in all great place .
I stayed here for 2 nights on business in June 2018. The hotel is quite unique and really does feel like a home. Funky furniture, spotless rooms / rest areas, super friendly staff - there is nothing I can fault.
I feel like coming back to Glasgow for this hotel alone.
Stayed here for a night in June, room was amazing. IPad to control the colour, temperature etc even the curtains. Would definitely recommend it for a stay in Glasgow. Can't comment on the breakfast as we never had it but the cocktails were really good.
Stayed here overnight with my daughter on a Saturday night recently.
Have stayed several times before and although thought it was always bit pricey for a tiny room had found it previously to be good standard.
This time disappointed to discover prices had been hiked considerably - probably on account of there being large event on at local Hampden Park.My husband had booked for us so didn't realise cost till I got there.
The room appeared clean enough but there was a dank smell which became worse overnight .
When we returned from our day out the room was cold. Turned the heating to full using the 'gimmicky' iPad but it really didn't warm up and as there are no extra blankets provided had to use bathroom towels to try to get some warmth.
Also one sub standard pillow each .
Poor nights sleep.
On previous occasions we have received voucher for complimentary drinks in the bar . Not this time and when I asked a member of staff she said they had stopped issuing them as people weren't using them !
All in all not a pleasant stay.
Won't be back !
Worst of all this is I was invited to provide feedback by email which I did and I also emailed the hotel management direct . To date no response or even acknowledgement of emails.
