... actual stairs, there were rocks piled in random ways and you had to clip in once again and use a rope to climb up. After this we made our way back to the van and headed back for lunch. I wish I had video taped the entire thing because my descriptions do the actual events no justice. I probably won't do it again but I'm glad I did it once. Never thought I was claustrophobic until this day.

Historical Traveler Reviews Artto Hotel Glasgow
Good location, shame about the noise
Stayed here over New Year so bear that in mind. Location great, very central and easy to walk to city centre highlights.
We were allocated a room at front of hotel on busy Hope St, opposite Central Station. We could hear the tv from next door was well as the lift, which was going at all hours of the night. There was also a lot of noise from the street. Room was pleasant if small and bathroom needed some cosmetic attention but was clean.
While there may be a good Indian restaurant next door we found the smell of food pervaded the corridors and our room, which was a little off putting.
If you want somewhere not too expensive with good location and take ear plugs, this is an ok hotel.
Couldn't be in a better location
We picked the Artto hotel because of its proximity to Central Station and reasonable price. We weren't dissappointed with the location, its just outside the station and within walking distance of the main shopping areas. the rooms were very modern and comfortable, but a little rough around the edges. In the evening we decided to try the adjoining curry restaurant which was great value for lovely food.
In summary I would definitely stay at the Artto again. Its great value, the staff are very friendly and the rooms are, on the whole, lovely. Our shopping trip to Glasgow was a great success and I would recommend both Glasgow and the hotel to everyone.
Great location, good price, clean room
Stayed for three nights in August, 2005. The lobby doubles as a bar/small lounge, but the people at the front desk were cheerful and helpful. Great location (across from Glagow Central train station), room was small but stylish but clean, modern, and comfortable. Note: the hotel is advertised on many web sites as being air conditioned -- the lobby is, but the rooms are not. If a central, city-center location and low price are important, this is a good pick.
The good thing about this hotel is that it is very central, and it has an affordable price (I paid £51 p.n.). Though its appearance is generally very good, it also offered a handy buffet based Indian restaurant, and its staff was friendly, there are a number of issues.
We stayed for one night in the Artto Hotel, Hope St. in Glasgow at the end of July. On arrival we were made feel very welcome and as we had arrived on an early morning flight..they stored our bags away while we explored the city.
I was looking for a nice, centrally located hotel in Glasgow for a night's stay after a concert we were planning to go to at Hampden Park. I found the Artto Hotel on Expedia and thought it fitted the bill. It's certainly central, right across the street from Glasgow's Central Station... that's where the praise ends, unfortunately.
Stayed here as I could not get accommodation anywhere. a really fabulous little hotel which is brand new. Rooms are very modern and clean and staff most helpful. Sould definately recommend this hotel and would stay again - with pleasure.
Stylish, and great location!
We stayed in the Artto on a recent girls weekend. If you are going for a shopping trip, then the location is perfect. It is literally two minutes walk from the main shopping street.
The rooms are not massive, but they are clean and bright and adequate for what you need.
The staff are helpful, and they easily accommodated our request to move our friends right next to us, as they had previously been on a different floor.
Above all, for what you get, you cannot beat the price!
Arrived in Glasgow at Queen St. station and made the relatively short walk to Hope St. where the Artto is located. It was very easy to find and the reception staff was very friendly. My room, a single, was really pretty small, but was very well-maintained and had a sweet flat panel TV in it. Overall, the decor was very modern, but my room lacked a telephone. When I walked in the door, I couldn't really believe how small the place was, but of all the places I stayed on my 2 week trip to Scotlan, I probably spent the most time in this very room. The tv was good and aside from Central Station which is very close, there were several restaurants, bars, and 24 hour convenience stores within walking distance. Overall, the price was very affordable, the location was great, the room was extremely clean, and if you're not expecting overly palatial accommodations, you'll be very happy with the Artto.
