Overall very nice and clean. The only disadvantage is that walking into the city takes 20 minutes.


Very basic but clean and warm. Not a central location in Glasgow.


Its ok for a budget hotel. Not a all a hostel, not a lot to it but a room with a bed. Bit out of the way, not crazy good money for what you get.


The Ibis Budget is the Ronseal of Hotels "It does exactly what it says on the tin". If you are looking for cheap accommodation for a couple of nights the Hotel is ideal. I would recommend making sure you only stay in the 2 person rooms as the 3 person rooms is a bit of a Squash as its one double bed and a bunk bed for 3 people. There is plenty of places to eat around the hotel and it is only a 15 minute walk to the city centre.

Clean but felt very much like a hospital room. However good value for money. Plenty of places to eat around the hotel and not too far from the train station.


We've spent 2 nights in this hotel for the MTV EMA show. It was a nice room, the view was into another room though. The toilet door should get changed as you can't close it without waking up your friend/partner/person in the next room.


We had a great stay at the ibis budget Hotel Glasgow. The first room was very clean and well equipped. Everything was fine. The second room was a bit dirty and had a problem with the toilet-handle. The employees were friendly and helpful. You can have a breakfast for 4,95 pounds in the morning and you can get a lot of snacks every hour. You can get to the city in 5-10 minutes by car or bus.


This is not a hostel, it's a UK chain of budget hotels. For that, it's very nice. The staff was helpful, it was really clean, and the rooms all have TVs and free wifi. It's pretty far from city centre and not a very pedestrian friendly route, nor is it very close to a subway station. It's next to a few attractions like a cinema, restaurants, and casinos though. Don't come expecting a backpacker's environment.


The beds in this hotel are it's biggest problem! No one in my party got any sleep because the beds are worse than sleeping on the floor they are so hard. The rooms are very basic but thats fair considering the price however the bathroom drain was broken and smelly and the beds were unacceotable!

The Ibis is a great basic hotel with good prices and super clean amenities. It's close to a few good restuarants but a bit of a walk to the main city area.


Very clean and cozy. Placed on the side of the river at about 15 minutes walk from the city center.


ibis is just what it says it is..a budget hotel. The atmosphere was cold and impersonal. Wifi was available if you had your own device- the one and only (coin operated ) computer in reception was out of order. Tea and coffee and even hot drinking water was only available from a vending machine at 1.40 UKP each time. once in the hotel, it was like a vast prison. No outdoor seating area for guests and limited (scottish only) TV programmes.
