Right in the heart of the City Center, Citizen M is ideally located close to the cities main Bus Station, and a short stroll away from the two main train stations. It is also within walking distance (or a short ride in one of Glasgow’s famously cheap taxis) to all 3 of our venues.
Citizen M is a ‘budget boutique’ hotel, an 8-floor luxury hotel offering 198 double rooms, with the most amazing design anywhere in the city. Due to the desirability of Citizen M, if you’d like to stay here we advise you to book FAST, as rooms for 2014 are already filling up fast.
So, if you’re into classic design, this is the place for you. The ‘lobby’ is more like a series of contemporary living rooms, full of Vitra furniture, Eames chairs, and more.
Citizen M’s pricing scheme is based on getting the best possible deals, at the earliest time. So, the sooner you book, the better the price. The normal pricing structure works on 3 different rates. As a friend of Citizen M, they’ve given us a £20 discount on the flexible rate, which means you can book the room at the cheapest available rate, with the perks of the ultimate rate. You can secure your room, with no payment being made til check-in. You are also able to cancel your room up to 6pm on the date of arrival. So, if you’re thinking of coming to Double Sight, we recommend you get a room booked pronto!
