Very cool Apr 04, 2012
This hotel is very cool, and very trendy, i liked it a lot, it seemed to be different than most hotels, i mean they followed me on Twitter and tweeted to me, haha.

It was a little confusing when i walked in, there were a pair of glass doors on either side of the room, an Elevator and a set of stairs, so i wasn't sure where to go, the lobby is on the "1st" floor, another guest had to tell me. When to check in, it was a very simple self check in on a computer, with staff standing by if you needed help or had questions.

When i walked into my room, it was small, which i knew before hand, so that's ok, and noticed how great the bed looked, it was massive! it literally went from wall to wall, great for me being extremely tall! It was very comfy with good pillows. The was a 32 inch ( or so ) flat screen TV mounted on the wall that greeted me when i walked in, i liked that, there were plenty of channels to watch, and a lot of free movies to watch, now some of them were "Adult Movies" or porn if that makes more sense, if you have kids staying at the hotel with you, the TV does have parental controls so you can easily block those. The rooms are small yes, but there is enough room for one person, or couple that likes to be close, haha. The bed is right in front of the large window that has two sets of blinds that are controlled by a remote ( the same remote controls everything in the room minus the shower and toilet, haha ) so you control how much natural light comes in, also you can pick what color of ambient light you want in the room, i choose blue, the colored light is in the shower which along with the toilet is in a frosted glass room, the shower is GREAT for someone my height, its a "rain shower" so the water comes from the ceiling, there is a normal shower head as well, you can use one or the other. There is an MP3 dock right by the bed, which is nice for charging a device, and for an alarm.

The staff was very friendly, and helpful. The hotel in general has kind of a funky ( in a good way ) feel to it, decorated in a very modern style, with pictures and facts all over the walls, i like the look of the place a lot.

It's in a good location for pubs! i went to a few that less than a 5 minute walk from the hotel, one of which i caught a comedy show at! The worlds tallest Cinema is also within a 5 minute walk.

The only bad things i can really think of are 1) the walls are a bit thin, so you can here other guest a little, not over clearly or overwhelmingly, 2) the confusion i had when i first walked in, not knowing where to check in at and 3) there were 2 fights within a block of the hotel, which is by no means the fault of the hotel, from what i've heard its to be expected when in Glasgow, wee bit of a rowdy crowd, plus they were just drunk teenagers.

All in all, i had a great stay, they bed is hard to get out of, it's just so nice!
