              Getting there.

              Glasgow International Airport is 10km away and demands a drive to reach the hotel, so there is a regular bus service available every 20 minutes from the airport to the Buchanan Bus Station.

              By car from the airport follow signs for the city center and leave the M8 at Junction 19. At the traffic lights turn left into Pitt Street and 2nd right into West George Street. Continue 5 blocks to Hope Street and turn left, then 2nd left into Bath Street. The Abode Glasgow is 1 block along on the left - look for the arched doorway opposite the Sauchiehall Center.

              Getting around.

              Central train station is within 10 minutes away and a bus stop is a few minutes away from the hotel.

                How central the hotel was to all the amenities. We also had a room looking out onto bath street which I liked.

                The room temperature. Although the air conditioning was up full, the room got warm really quickly.

                Arrived at hotel at 0730 (off the sleeper train from London), normally a bit early for check-in. Was given a room immeditately.

                Bed was comfortable, but a bit soft.

                The Central location.

                I booked 2 x rooms and requested rooms away from the noise of Bath Street - we arrived to find we had 2 x rooms on the first floor on Bath Street. It was very noisy through the night and we all had interupted sleep.

                I was absolutley gob smacked by the size of our room it was fabulous, and the stain glass window was absolutley beautiful. For the size of the hotel I was surprised at how nice and warm it was, not to much but certainly not cold which can be very off putting. It was very cozy. Toileteries were very fresh and not sickly. The art throughout the hotel was fantastic, really impressed by it, it makes you want to take a look round the place just to view all the wall hangings.

                I can honestly say I didnt find much to complain about apart from maybe you should have some kind of eye catching sign or sketch in the lift to prompt people to close the gate when they get out of it. I know you have a sign but it is a bit lost to some people.

                Helpful and friendly staff

                Nothing is worse than a trendy hotel which looks tired and tatty.Disappointed that since my last visit the restaurant had closed and there was no mention of this when booking. Instead I had to eat in the breakfast room in the basement with booth type seats adjoining the bar. Food was good but no atmosphere, compounded by loud hip hop music and funky lighting! Surprise surprise there were no customers drinking in the unwelcoming and uncomfortable bar.

                The room descriptions used by Booked.net are not the same as those used by the hotel. So if you think that you have been given the wrong standard of room there is no easy way to clear it up!!

                We attended a 60th Wedding Anniversary at the hotel, that is the only reason for staying there.

                We did not appreciate being kept awake until 5.30am by the room next door and having to phone for the duty manager to sort it.

                Bar and reception staff were extremely helpful and freindly. We were allowed to check in early and the barman was attentive and made us feel very welcome. The decor of the hotel is funky and public areas are cool - the rooms have nice touches - bathrobes toiletries etc not expected for the price.

                The rooms are due a little bit of refurbishment - signs of shabbiness were beginning to show.

                Old style builing and reception are beautifal. Staff friendly

                When booking the "luxury double room" as it was decribed it was far from our expectations. With a view of frosted saftey glass from our window and a metal security fence over window says enough, also bathroom was small and basic. For the money we paid not impressed.

                The rooms are comfortable and the hotel style is great

                It's fine although the staff are a little cold... The experience is quite transactional ( you're just a number to them) and they don't make you feel welcome. This can make the hotel a lonely place for the business traveller

                The location in respect of the city centre. The service recieved by the staff at the hotel.

                The room was extremely small, the light fittings dated, the double glazing was substandard so was extremely noisy. The furniture needs replacing.

                location, checkin staff and style of the hotel

                the bar staff - they tried to substitute a cheap rum into a pricey cocktail without letting me know which I thought was pretty poor.

                Very comfortable room

                The room was inexpensive but it was extremely noisy overlooking bath street.
