Old but clean furnishings, all fine for a city trip, rather inconspicuous and neglected from the outside, inside everything was a bit worn but clean. The view from the window of an abandoned building is rather unpleasant. Best close the curtains immediately. but you aren't there for that anyway. Glasgow itself is a great, cosmopolitan and friendly city - we were there by chance on the last day of the Commonwealth Games. The lady at the desk was friendly but not able to speak understandable English, terrible Scottish accent, which we luckily got accustomed to during the stay. Some of ... the Chinese were totally lost and their English was good. read hotel review

Centrally located hotel for a good price, good condition for Britain, bed rather uncomfortable, rich Scottish breakfast (not for everyone, as it is very fatty and heavy) read hotel review

The hotel is in the middle of the city, the centre can easily be explored on foot. Guest parking (car and even be unloading) is very problematic. The hotel garage is 800m far away and in front of the hotel is park/halteverbot. Breakfast did not impress. read hotel review

Highly recommended in Glasgow - hotel Alexander thomso archived

  • October 2011
The hotel Alexander thomson is located on the edge downtown Glasgow in Argyle street, one of the main streets. The train station Glasgow central is also in the immediate area. A bus stop is also not far away. My room was large and comfortable furnished. The breakfast buffet was varied and tasteful. The staff at reception gave a lot of effort, but it seemed sometimes quite uncertain. Due to its convenient location to the sights and good breakfast a recommendable house. read hotel review

  • June 2011
The building was both from the outside, as well as from the inside a little more than ageing from, but you can live with that, because the rooms were clean and in a relatively good condition. Staff friendly and accommodating. Although the building in the immediate near train station is, it was 10:00 p. m. very quiet. There are shops plentiful, restaurants are not far away, you could reach everything good on foot. For a short journey or a city trip we would this book this hotel again at any time. read hotel review
