Welcome to Panoptic’s Guide to the best hotels in Glasgow!

Whether it’s a holiday or a few nights away, when we want to take some time off, the first thing we do is choose a city we want to visit. Naturally, the next step is to look for accommodation. From endless websites and different platforms, the internet is not short of options – and that can cause a little indecisiveness! But if you’re wanting to visit our lovely city of Glasgow then look no further, we’ve got some great hotels for you to choose from!

Kimpton Blythswood Square Hotel

If you’re looking for something fancy, as well as being centrally located then look for no other than the Kimpton Blythswood Square Hotel. The luxury hotel is ideally located in the city centre with a stone’s throw away from the famous Buchanan Street. With its gorgeous Georgian architecture, superior service, well-loved spa and private gardens, the five-star property continues to define Glaswegian luxury as the only hotel in the city with AA accreditation.

Crowne Plaza Hotel

Looking for good views? Then this is the place for you! Overlooking the River Clyde, the Crowne Plaza offers exceptional views and tranquillity while being just a five-minute walk from the vibrant lane of Finnieston and a short ten-minute walk from the city centre. Its laid back ambience paired with its subtle, sleek and stylish interior makes the Crowne Plaza the perfect location for business and leisure trips. Overlooking the hydro, the hotel is also an excellent choice for those attending concerts at the venues nearby – so what’s holding you back? Reserve your place!

voco Grand Central Hotel

A lot of people are fascinated by history, which is why they prefer historic locations. If you’re one of those people, we’ve got just the hotel for you! Directly adjoining Glasgow Central station, the construction of the building was completed in 1883 and has a history of welcoming high profile celebrities from JFK, Winston Churchill, Maradona to The Beatles – they really have seen it all. Plus, you’re in the heart of Glasgow, what more could you want?

Hotel du Vin

Want to get away from the city centre? Then let us take you to the West End. Hotel du Vin Glasgow at One Devonshire Gardens is a luxury boutique Glasgow hotel with an excellent reputation for service and style. The boutique hotel has 49 bedrooms and suites, each with extremely comfy hand sprung mattresses, fine Egyptian linen, deep roll top baths and plasma TVs. The hotel even has a well-stocked whisky room to promote the Scottish whiskey culture. The great part? It’s only a 30-minute drive from the famous Loch Lomond for those wanting to check it out, so it’s a win-win situation!


YOTEL Glasgow is a great alternative for those who don’t want to spend too much money but also want to be centrally located. The newly opened hotel is located across from the famous central station which enables visitors the freedom of travel. Each room – or cabin as Yotel likes to call them, is equipped with features including the space-saving adjustable SmartBed with gel cooled mattresses, refreshing rain showers, Smart TVs and free super-fast WiFi to encourage guests to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device).
