Excellent excellent location. Stayed here for 4 nights and it was right next to the Christmas market set up in the centre of the city. Has a lot of shopping and restaurants nearby with very easy access to the subway.

The room I was in was small but well equipped and housekeeping service was great. Great cafe downstairs as well where I had breakfast one day and it was excellent.

The size of the room did not impact on the amazingly comfortable bed, the large TV, kettle and coffee station, and the infamous glass box bathroom. Yes, the frosting on the glass was still a little revealing but it is exactly as shown on the website pictures so can’t complain there. More importantly, the bathroom was very modern and impeccably clean.

The location of the hotel was ideal and perfect for us to explore the centre of Glasgow in the short amount of time we had…there were christmas markets happening at the time in St George’s Square which were awesome and right at our doorstep. I almost didn’t want to get out and explore though because the bed was too comfortable to get out of!

The complementary wine and cheese didn’t go astray and the breakfast was excellent; huge buffet of cooked continentals as well as fresh pastries, fruit, cereals and coffee. Very good value for money.

We were visiting Glasgow for the first time and we stayed in the Z hotel which is really close to the George square and the Christmas market.

Nice touch for the hotel they provide a free glass of wine and some cheese when we arrived.

The room was really clean and so was the communal area. The hotel is quite modern. The hotel has sky in the rooms which is a nice touch.

The bathroom is just a glass screen (frosted) in the room which isn’t that great as you can see through them. Other than that a great experience

Staff were really helpful and welcoming. Would recommend this hotel.

Everything in the executive lounge is free and the service is very friendly.
