I have stayed here a couple of times and love the location, but have been bothered by outside noise.
The rooms we have had have not been huge, though they were the cheaper rooms but are well equipped. If you upgrade your room you do get many extras like cd players, mezzanine levels but you will pay considerably more for this. Personally I wouldnt bother as there are are hotels in Glasgow that I find more comfortable. The rooms here are very modern in their theme and may not be to everyone's taste.
I do however like the bar in this hotel, it tends to be quite busy with large glass window so great for people watching. The bar food is good too, so I would recommend popping in for a drink, especially if going to the Cineworld cinema or the Royal Concert Hall which are on the doorstep along with the bus station and Buchanan Galleries shopping centre.
Breakfasts are buffet style and are tasty and I couldnt really fault them. There is no on site car parking but there is an NCP car park accross the road, this can be a bit pricey though.
So if you are not a light sleeper or want to spend more to upgrade your room, this hotel will be fine. Do check around for prices though as they can vary considerably.
The Glasgow Park Inn, formerly the Langs Hotel, is situated within a few minutes walk from the main shopping streets of Glasgow, yet still situated within a quiet area. This 4 star hotel has 100 rooms, ranging from £89 per night to £350 per experience night.
Glasgow is the biggest city in Scotland, with approximately 560,000 residents. The city is home to two main football clubs (Rangers and Celtic), the second best shopping destination outside London and is home to a number of art galleries and museums, including the recently refurbished Kelvingrove Art Galleries. Add in a vibrant nightlife, and you'll always find something to do in Glasgow.
Located across from the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, and only a few minutes walk to the main shopping areas in Glasgow, this hotel is ideally located for a leisure break. The hotel is best reached by coach, as the Buchanan Bus Station is right next door.
Drivers beware! The hotel has no parking facilities, although discounted parking is available at the local shopping centre (Buchanan Galleries), a few minutes walk from the hotel. This car park does however close at 11pm each night, so best not to park here if you require use of your car during the night. A nearer, and cheaper, car park is situated directly behind the car park, although it is harder to find a space during the day, but this car park has the advantage of remaining open all night.
On entering the hotel, the Reception desk is immediately in front of you, with the restuarant to the left, and the cafe bar to the right.
The Reception desk is small, though never busy as the staff are very efficient. The Reception desk has a waterfall behind it, which changes colour, so it keeps your mind off any wait. It only took a few minutes to check in, and we were informed that our room was not yet ready, but in the meantime we were welcome to enjoy a complimentary drink at the bar - not bad given that we had arrived about 30 minutes before the advertised check in time.
About five minutes after getting our drinks, the receptionist came over to tell us that our room was now ready, and that she would arrange for the Concierge to take our bags up.
One of the biggest and most impressive hotel rooms I've ever stayed in. We had a mezzanine suite on the second floor. The room itself was well designed with a dining area, lounge, and spacious en-suite bathroom on the lower floor with the bedroom on the mezzanine.
The lounge had a widescreen TV, DVD player, and a Playstation, and well as a comfy corner suite, with heater and air-conditioning. The dining area had a dining table with 6 seats, and upstairs was a dressing table, wardrobe, massive queen size bed, and a TV attached to a cabinet on the bottom of the bed. In the bathroom there was a bath and a separate power shower, with room enough for two!
FOOD AND BEVERAGES
The hotel has an award winning restaurant, Oshi, plus a bar (Bbar) serving bar snacks.
Oshi has an oriential feel to it, with a water feature descended from the mezzanine level to a small river through the middle of the restaurant. The food is gorgeous, well presented, and reasonably priced if you're not staying at the hotel.
On our first stay I had sushi, the most delicious lamb shanks (the meat fell off the bone) and a white chocolate dessert. Each course was perfectly cooked and presented.
The BBar sells a range of well priced food, and is well placed to sit and people watch (one of my favourite hobbies!)
As far as I know, the hotel doesn't have a leisure centre, although there is a gym. There are also beauty treatments available, although this needs to be booked in advance, as I don't think the therapist is there full time.
The hotel offers the normal services to business travellers, such as broadband, fax, etc.
This hotel is perfect for a relaxing stay in the heart of Glasgow city centre. The hustle and bustle of the city is only moment's walk away, yet the hotel offers a feel of tranquillity.
**** Park Inn- Glasgow****
Recently through hotelclub.com i was given about £25 off a hotel so my friend and i decided that instead of getting our normal hotel extra cheap we would treat ourself to a nicer one.
Located in the centre of Glasgow,this four star hotel is right next to the Bus station and a five minute walk to the train station.It is also very close to Buchanan street and the gallery of modern art.
As you enter the hotel you see the restaurant to one side, reception desk straight ahead and the bar to your right.Staff were very friendly and checking in only took about five minutes.
The hotel has 100 rooms and every room has a dvd player or playstation,ours had a dvd player.The shower in the en suite bathroom was amazing!!! The best shower i have ever came across in a hotel and i have stayed in a few.It was nice and powerful with several different settings to choose from.The furniture was more old fashioned than i expected but still rather nice.
The hotel has an award winning restaurant called "Oshi Restaurant" which was absolutely dead when we went so we ended up asking them to send the food up to our room.The food was nice but its not really our thing.I like nice hotel rooms with en suite etc but i don't really like the food that goes with it. Luckily Glasgow has loads of nice places to eat.
The hotel also contains high speed internet access i didn't use) and a fitness centre and pool which are nice.
This hotel is part of goldpoints plus-this is free to join and allows you to earn and spend points on hotel stays.Other hotels which include this is the Radisson at London Stanstead .It also gives you money off your food bill.
Prices start from £89.00 per night and go up to £315.00 for 2 nights on one of the experience packages.
In the heart of Glasgow's city centre, one is close to several main attractions.
