Radisson Blu – Located next to Glasgow Central railway station, this modern hotel is a popular destination for those staying in the city. Its location also means it is less than 10 minutes walk away from the Hypespotting venue – www.radissonblu.com/en/hotel-glasgow
citizenM Hotel – A boutique style hotel, citizenM stands out for its cool design and modern features. Situated at the top of the city centre, it would be around a 20 minute walk to the Hypespotting venue – www.citizenm.com/destinations/glasgow/glasgow-hotel
Mid-range options include:
Premier Inn – If you like Premier Inns then you’re in luck, as there’s currently four servicing the city centre. The Argyle Street location is very close to the Hypespotting venue, so would provide a handy alternative to those looking for a more cost-effective option near to the action. The other locations are all still within reasonable walking distance and provide further choice for players.
Holiday Inn Glasgow – Located next to Buchanan Street Bus Station, this hotel has recently been refurbished, and so can offer modern, good quality accommodation. It is around a 20/25 minute walk to the Hypespotting venue, but does benefit from being next to lots of city centre amenities and attractions – www.higlasgow.com
Holiday Inn Express – More suited to the short stay traveller than its sister hotel above, this hotel is well situated with views of the River Clyde. It is also only a short 10 minute walk direct to the Hypespotting venue – www.expressglasgow.co.uk
Travelodge Glasgow Central – This hotel is located at the top of the city centre, on the same street as the EasyHotel (below). Offering straightforward accommodation for visitors, it is around a 20/25 minutes walk away from the Hilton Hotel – www.travelodge.co.uk/hotels/209/Glasgow-Central-hotel
Jurys Inn – Very close to Glasgow Central train station, this hotel routinely welcomes a number of short stay visitors. It is not far from the Hypespotting venue (around 10 minutes), and offers easy access to the city centre – www.jurysinns.com/hotels/glasgow
Budget options include:
Ibis Hotel – A well-known chain of hotels throughout Europe, the Ibis has two locations in the heart of Glasgow city centre. With many amenities on your doorstep, they are a popular choice for accommodation in the city.
EasyHotel Glasgow – A favourite with the FGC over the years, this hotel offers a no-frills level of accommodation. All rooms are en-suite, though you will have to pay a little extra if you want a window – www.easyhotel.com/hotels/united-kingdom/glasgow-city
EuroHostel – This well situated hostel is barely minutes away from Glasgow Central train station and the city centre. With a wide range of room options, you can choose whichever suits your budget. The hostel also offers dorms (up to 12 people), and at previous Hypespottings groups of friends have booked a whole dorm, to help keep costs to a minimum – www.euro-hostels.co.uk/glasgow
You can also utilise accommodation search websites such expedia.com or booking.com, where you can view multiple hotel options, and filter by price, room type, etc.
Please remember that despite the numerous options available in Glasgow, in order to ensure that you have your accommodation ready for Hypespotting, the best advice is to book early.
