Top notch apartment.
We had a great stay in April and would love to stay there again. The desk staff are fantastic and are quite helpful. The cleaning staff on the other hand are pushy and rude. They came into our place and started cleaning while we were still in the apt. It would've been nice if they "waited" for us to leave. Other than that, the suite is very large (about 900 sq ft or more) and all the amenities are there. As another reader mentioned, the Selfridges & Marks & Spender shops are both very close and are having the kitchen makes dining at home quite nice. Buchanan Bus Station is close as well as the subway and train connections. Wonderful pad and we'd definately recommend it to anyone.
All you need
Stayed at Glasgow Lofts in May whilst on a business trip to Europe and the U.K. During the course of the three week trip I stayed in nine different hotels and this was by far the best. Don't be put off by the outside appearance, once you go through the doors and up the lift it all changes! We had two bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with a spa bath and a seperate shower - the other with a shower) and a lounge with open plan kitchen. The lofts are modern and beautifully appointed - light wood floors and cupboards, stainless steel and granite fittings, washer/tumble drier, dishwasher, microwave, convection oven and definately the most comfortable bed of my entire trip. Lots of thoughful touches - detergent for the washing machine, some muffins (with a welcome note attached), bottled water in the fridge and a packet of savoury biscuits as well a really good toiletries. One block down you will find a pedestrian mall with many busy shops - these include Selfridges and Marks & Spencer so you can stock up on microwavable dinners. Free wi-fi internet (very unusual for the UK!) was also much appreciated. I certainly won't be staying anywhere else on my next trip to Glasgow.
Just returned from agreat stay in these lovely apartments. Very modern and comfortable. The floor to ceiling windows were novel BUT offered no privacy as the apartments were overlooked by Travel Lodge and flats. So when in bed the blinds had to be closed! No safe deposit box and we were not offered use of the gym or swimming pool! A great stay though
Loved the interior - don't expect much from the outside
These are apartments as they state ie don't expect hotel service.Tthis is for those who prefer flat type accomodation when away. We found a bit of difficulty locating the entrace as it is tucked away beside an entrance to a furniture shop. From the outside the tower block looks like 60's style flats but the interiors more than make up for it. Rooms are fantastic and location just paralell to Sauchiehall St behind the Theatre is great for out and about night life in the city centre without having to worry about taxis if you are willing to take a 5-10 minute walk. Would we stay again? Most definitely.
Huge, modern, great location!
The apartment was beautiful. Very modern appliances with floor to ceiling windows in the large open kitchen/dining/living room and in each of the two bedrooms. The location was great, too. Karen, who checked us in and out, was very helpful.
Talk about the wow factor ...
The Loft was perfect. My husband and I made use of the 3 for 2 nights option offered on Expedia and stayed the Fri-Mon.
Talk about the wow factor - as soon as you open the door you walk into an open plan kitchen and living area which looks out onto the Glasgow sky line with floor to celing windows. The apartment we stayed in had a fully equipped kitchen (with all the means to cook a meal if you really want to), 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms!
It is extremely clean and well kitted out. It is at the top of the shopping area, with a M&S across the road if you run out of milk.
I would recommend this accommadation to anyone wanting to be near the shopping or theatre district of Glasgow.
This place is so good it should be kept a secret!!!
Stunning from start to finish ! Loved the jacuzzi, loved the whole thing!!!
A birthday treat
I really enjoyed an overnight stay here and would definitely stay again and recommend it. The concierge was extremely helpful, the apartment was spotless and thanks to laterooms I got a bargain deal on the room rate.
Perfection in the middle of Glasgow
I was a bit hesitant about renting a flat as apposed to staying in a hotel in Glasgow, but as I have tried most of city?s hotels I thought I should give it a go, and what a pleasant surprise Glasgow Lofts turned out to be.
The lofts are perfectly laid out and equipped with everything to make you feel right at home. I was so comfortable and pleased with the loft that I had to force myself to leave daily as I would have been perfectly happy to spend my days gazing out of the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the city, or sitting in the Jacuzzi reading a book.
This really sets the bench mark for this type of accommodation. I travel monthly and have rented flats on three different continents and Glasgow Lofts are definitely in a league of their own. Superb. My only worry is that they will become so popular that I will have trouble booking in the future!
Glasgow Lofts what can I say! Perfect! Luxurious! Home from Home! Stylish!
Some colleagues, friends and I - 9 women in all - checked in to the Glasgow Lofts for a weekend after flying up from Torquay in Devon. We found the welcome warm, the apartments fabulous and all this situated in the heart of stylish Glasgow! Margaret the lady who organised all this for us was wonderfully efficient and we were able to hit the shops less than an hour after we had settled in. (a great base to tour Scotland too with rail links nearby).
These apartments are fitted out to the standard of a 5 star hotel but without the need to dress for breakfast or stick to set mealtimes. Some of my friends had never been to Scotland but will be back and have decided that with the cheap flights available it is as economical to go to Glasgow than it is to go to London - besides Glasgow is more stylish and fun!

Scotland today is about literature, the craggy highlands, hills of heather, Clans, kilts, Royalty, wildlife, history, battles and buildings.
We stopped briefly in Glasgow and admired a clean tidy city with lots of memorabilia leftover from the Games. From here we headed across the Isle of Sky, into the highlands ...

Really looking forward to seeing them again this weekend, and really sad that when we go we don't know when we will see them again. Certainly it is the biggest incentive to try and come back another time. Thank you so much Alicia for making the visit so warm and welcoming ...
... as Hilary said , give it a week and you can face it again.
At the next church we saw the work of a West Country group, again the artistry was exquisite and on to lunch with our menfolk overlooking loch Lomond.
Then to Hill House at Helensburgh to see the Rennie Mackintosh house leaving Mike and Hilary to see the rest of the quilts.

This particular weekend has not been fun at all times, because I was really tired and definitely needed to get used to having two more people around and taking care of them (something I have never really done before, since I have never lived on ...
... morning and successfully find our way to Glasgow's city centre, George Square - only a short walk from our Guest House. With some luck we managed to stumble across the City Sighs Tour Bus - a hop on hop off tour of Glasgow. After riding on top of the bus for a while, it was easy to see that it's such a nice place! So many beautiful old buildings and cobblestone roads. And everything is so green! We decided to stop off at the River Clyde stop where we went ...
