We were "upgraded" from Ambassador Hotel to Embassy Apt and I first thought that was a nice gesture with the extra kitchenette and larger sleeping quarters and bedroom. However, the portable heaters that was installed around the room didn't provide enough heating in the cold Scottish winter night when temperature plunge to freezing. It seemed that cold draft were constantly...

Many thanks for your recent review, yes we did have a few nights in November that were particularly cold, however if requested we could have provided a couple of extra heaters or blankets.

We had 3 nights stay whilst visiting for a conference. The apartment was very well priced, clean and in an excellent location. The only negative was a slightly tatty bath and shower, and a bathroom heater than only worked for about 10 seconds when that light was originally switched on, but the rest of the apartment was refurbished to a...

We were in room 1 in the embassy apartments. The whole room needs refurbished. Disappointed as web site does not show this room. Other rooms looked far superior. Shower mouldy. Fridge door rusty. Freestanding cooker ancient and not clean. Pillows awful. Felt like I was visiting my granny's house circa 1980.

I visit Glasgow regularly and I have found it very difficult to book quiet accommodation in a convenient location. Glasgow seems to be very popular! Despite some niggles, an Embassy apartment is a good choice. The check-in and out were quick and efficient. Our apartment was spacious and comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. It was great to be...

As a solo traveller I stayed in the Embassy Apartments for three nights in a quiet ground floor flat (#3) at the rear of the building.
