Historical Traveller Reviews of Malmaison Glasgow Hotel
Lovely Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Staying last weekend with my husband who is quite critical he found the hotel to be quite luxurious but with personal touches from the staff. The rooms were lovely with flat screen televisions, CD/DVD players and a lovely bathroom.
Both times we have been overlooking the city centre police station and have had no problems with noise at all and both times were on a Saturday night.
I would recommend this hotel for those who want to be close to the shops and restaurants and we were even at a concert and travelled to the exhibition centre by taxi which was very reasonable.
Decent But Loudfrom isvaradeva
Yet the room was a good size, large enough to have a chaise lounge in the corner. But there wasn't a lot of closet space which didn't bother me but may bother some.
It was about a five to ten minute walk to the center of the city which I liked, but it is up a hill so you should keep that in mind if you are considering this hotel.
The service in the restaurant was friendly, but unequivocably slow. I went there twice and each time I had to walk up to the bar to pay because no one seemed to want to take my check.
I would stay here again, but not before I research other options.
A bit of a rip offfrom Dunedinhen
We were only staying one night and were just using it to sleep in. If I were staying longer then I would have asked to be moved or a reduction in price.
Room without a viewfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Service at breakfast was very disappointing. We had to ask twice for cutlery, they got our order wrong and there was nothing left in the continental buffet, despite being approx. 1 hour left of breakfast. The waitresses were disinterested and the food was average at best.
The front desk staff were friendly and helpful and suggested some good restaurants.
All in all our stay was OK but not the experience we were looking for. We won't stay again.

As stylish as everfrom JCW
Fear not! It seems as though the hotel's had a significant amount of investment of late, and been spruced up. Our room was gorgeous - very, very stylishly decorated, spacious and extremely comfortable. Equipment has been updated - flat screen TVs and free broadband (with rumours of iPod docking stations in the posher rooms). The bathroom in particular was lovely, and the Arran Aromatics toiletries are great.
Staff are professional and friendly. We even managed to let us check in at 10.30am, having been warned in advance of our early arrival. The bar and restaurant are lovely, and breakfast is excellent. (If I had one minor whinge, it's that their new menu doesn't seem anything like as good as the old brasserie menu).
And the hotel has retained its reputation for exceptional value, with a good deal from the hotel's website. Great to see the hotel back on top form. The Mal strikes just the right balance between relaxed style and real professionalism. Very highly recommended.
A wonderfully stylish stayfrom Megandavid
This stunning hotel is a converted Greek Orthodox Church, although you wouldn't guess it from the interior which is lush and subtly designed. The hotel also features a rather gorgeous Champagne Bar in the crypt downstairs overlooked from the top of a metal spiral-staircase and covered by an intricate glass roof. The only concession to the original church is the use of the subdued and atmospheric crypt to house the restaurant.
Our stay was really relaxed & chilled and we found the staff really helpful, efficient and accommodating. Despite a small mixup on our arrival they quickly sorted out the problem and upgraded us. Throughout the rest of the stay they were always more than happy to assist.
We found the location to be perfect as it was a short walk downhill to the city centre. To be honest we were slightly concerned after reading some of the reviews, especially as we have stayed in several design/class hotels in the last few years. That said we checked out the other hotels, we'd considered whilst walking around town and we were very happy that we had gone with the Malmaison in the end.
Don't be deterred by the slick marketing of the Malmaison group, this place and its staff are superb. Highly recommended.
Great Location, Brilliant Food, Nice Staff, Great Roomfrom MarkCMP
The room was a wee bit small, but with a large firm bed and a flatscreen TV with a DVD / CD player; having your own music makes a huge difference when you're travelling.
The champagne bar is funky and has big fat sofas you can sink into, and the range of whisky, gin, wine and champagne pretty fine- there's not many places you can get Cloudy Bay from Marlborough in NZ, but there it was sitting on the short but well put together wine list.
Music is cool but unobtrusive, and from micro Bose speakers throughout.
Staff were friendly and informative, especially in the restaurant, where the chorizo and asparagus salad was outstanding.
Breakfast was full of mini pastries, juices, breads, and the coffee woke us up nicely.
Try the excellent bar "Bia" down the road on West Regent St if you like cocktails or indie rock...!
changing roomsfrom Jingsy
After moaning we got moved to a MUCH bigger room. Great bed, decor, bathroom etc
Lots of free stuff in the rooms as well.
Staff need to smile a wee bit more though!
Top Local Tips for Glasgow
WORTH EATING HERE WORTH EATING HERE ONCE, BUT THERE ARE LOADS OF WELL PRICED PLACES IN GLASGOW.
Nightlife is great. Nightlife is great.
Go to West End! Go to the West End area of Glasgow - much nicer than the city centre. There have a few nice bars and restaurans and the locals go out here. Ashton Lane is also nice!
