Glasgow is a city full of culture, sights and entertainment, so it is little wonder why it is becoming a favourite amongst tourists from across the world.
Where to Stay
Always cheap, perennial favourites such as Travelodge and Premier Inns can be found close to central Glasgow. However, one does not need to sacrifice taste or individuality to find affordable accommodation near to the centre of town.
Most hotels offer early booking or last minute offers and the Arthouse Hotel, 129 Bath Street is no exception. In a building that used to be the headquarters of the Office of Education, this unique building, built in 1911 is conveniently situated 5 minutes’ walk from either Queen Street Station or Buchanan Street Bus Station. The interior is wonderful, filled with purples, golds and reds. Nothing has been left to chance and the rooms are fabulous. A great place to stay without breaking the bank.
On the banks of the River Clyde the Mint Hotel offers double rooms for as little as £89 per night. Again, sites like lastminute.com can drastically reduce this price. With access to The Glasgow Conference Centre, The Glasgow Science Centre and the IMAX Centre within minutes, the rooms, which all have internet access, DVD players, air conditioning and room service are the last word in affordable accommodation.
Close to Central Station, the Alexander Thomson Hotel at 320 Argyle Street is a real find as far as affordable accommodation in Glasgow is concerned. Very central and close to all the main tourist attractions and amenities, this very well equipped hotel can meet anyone’s needs. Whether you are visiting Glasgow for business or leisure, the staff are only too happy to help.
Affordable Accommodation with A Little More to Offer
Affordable accommodation need not mean that corners should be cut. The Tulip Inn Glasgow as well as offering en suite power showers and other extras in each room, also has many facilities for the disabled guest. Centrally located and with comfortable and well equipped rooms, this is a hotel that is much more than budget.
It is worth bearing in mind that Glasgow, like any other great destination has something for everyone. It’s also worth keeping in mind that either booking early or searching for last minute deals is likely to net you a bargain.
