We spent two nights in the Ambassador to celebrate our friends birthday. We thought the location was ideal for us in a quiet area, near to the botanic gardens and the West End of Glasgow. The three bed room was large with a small but well equipped kitchen . Everything was clean and newly decorated,. I was pleased to find...

It is a refreshing change to find accommodation at a reasonable price for a family of four. We had a super spacious room with one double bed and three single beds. There was a well equipped kitchen so we ate our b'fasts there and did not use the hotel next door, I'm sure that would have been fine as it...

This hotel is old and far away from the city. It is not convenient because you need to walk quite far to a train station, especially in cold weather. So if you want to go to shopping or visit Glasgow city, this place is not recommended. The good thing is there is a large room for a family with a...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and for your kind comments. Our hotel is situated in the heart of Glasgow’s West End and overlooks the beautiful Botanic Gardens. There are super transport links to the City Centre, including the subway which only takes a few minutes to get you into the centre of town, our staff...

I stayed in the one roomed studio which was ideal for me alone or would have been fine for a couple. The room was spacious, with a tv, table for eating and a sizeable bathroom with full bath as well as a well equipped kitchen. The bed was comfortable. Check in was speedy and friendly at the Ambassador next door....

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...
