The Alexander Thomson Hotel

The big attraction of Alexander Thomson Hotel is its central location, just a stone’s throw from River Clyde and Central Station, Glasgow’s main train station. This recently refurbished three star hotel is named after the famous Glaswegian architect Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson because of the style of the building, which is Victorian with a Greek influence. You can relax in the bar, use the fax machine or get tourist information from the 24 hour reception. A dry cleaning service is also available.
