Tips / Destination

A trip to Glasgow doesn’t have to break the bank. Here are some of the top choices for budget accommodations in the city.

The Z Hotel feels like it should be a lot more expensive than it is, with an almost boutique vibe. It’s also bang in the middle of town near George Square.

Another fashionable choice is GoGlasgow Urban Hotel, where serious thought has been put into the design of each of the 117 rooms. It’s a top spot for when you want to feel fancy without paying through the nose.

For those really penny pinching, a hostel is the way forward. Euro Hostel Glasgow is the pick of the bunch, famous for its cleanliness and easy access to Glasgow Central Station.

If you want a private room cheaper than almost all of the competition, Point A Hotel is worth a look. The rooms are compact and facilities are basic — plus your room will only be cleaned every three days — but those who just want a place to rest their head probably won’t mind. It’s far nicer than getting woken up by drunken bunk mates in a 12-person dorm.
