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
Great place, great location, very clean and the staff are all very welcoming. Mood lighting works very well in the room. Bar was very nice, great selection of premium spirits and cocktails. The team again were very well trained. Will be back.
Great staff, great quality breakfast and comfy bed but it really lacks having a kettle in the room, not nice when travelling for business and you can’t make a hot drink quickly. If they changed this it really would be affordable luxury- currently for me it’s just affordable.
I stayed there with my daughter on Saturday 8th December. My daughter picked the hotel due to location as we were going to see a show.
On arrival staff member was friendly but we were shown to a computer for self service check in. We asked if there was any possibility we could get into our room early , it was only 12 midday we were told no it wasn’t something they would not consider.
The room was small and reminded me of a basic room on a cruise ship.
The bed was pushed against the wall which meant that one of us had to climb over the other if they needed to get out of bed . How can that be good planning. The furniture was basic and made to look trendy however lacked any luxury . The sink is in the bedroom rather than in the bathroom.
There was no coffee making facilities.
Everything from turning off lights, tv, shutting blinds, turning down heating was all done through a device like a mini I pad.
Very trendy but lacked any luxury. For £170 per night wth no breakfast I would ot stay here again. I like my comforts and this hotel did not meet my requirements . Also not good value for money.
This hotel has everything on offer from mood lighting to. Music remote controlled blinds and also an interface that let's you select the mood and adjust everything to that however if staying with friends it's always good to. Remember you can see everything going on in the toilet and a spectacular sillohuette in the shower
Best citizenM staff yet! Super hospitable and friendly staff. All staff greeted and provided help with a smile. They also gave great recommendations. Location is under 10 minute walk from train and bus station.
