We arrived in the middle of the night due to a car break-down. The receptionist kindly called to ask if we were still coming, kept the room for us and allowed us a later check-out so we could sleep in.


Really great location! Not close to city centre, but lovely gardens across the street and nice restaurants on either side of the street. Breakfast is great, and staff very friendly.


The room was small and stuffy (but at least we could open the window), the bedding seemed old, but otherwise the shared facilities were clean and breakfast was provided. Helpful & friendly staff. Location: it's within walking distance of the Kelvingrove art gallery and museum, the gardens, and the University of Glasgow - all worth a visit. Otherwise, it is a little out of the way of the centre of the city. We only had a couple of hours to roam around, so we enjoyed what was to be seen locally.


Smith's Hotel was small and very out dated. But the staff were kind and friendly and the facility was perfectly situated in the city's west end right by Kelvingrove. Our room was quiet and there was daily cleaning of the common bathroom. Our room had a slight oudor when we arrived but we kept the window open\sprayed some cologne. Also I would recommend skipping the breakfast. I could nitpic more but... This is by no means a luxury stay but it was affordable and perfectly located and secure.


Breakfasts are rather good. They serve apple/orange juice, coffee, tea, porridge, cereals, bacon, sausage, eggs, toasts and something else. I stayed in a twin room with shared toilet/showers. The room was just fine: clean and furnished. There was a sink instead of a desk though, which I found a bit odd. Also electricity sockets were placed far from the bed. Tea and coffee in sachets were supplied together with an electric kettle. What I needed and did not find was shower gel.
