We’ve also been on a tour of its facilities and rooms and bring you the inside track on the standard you can expect when you go to stay there on our website www.hotels.tv/glasgow. But first here, a quick summary of the main points we took in during our visit and a score out of 100 for the Merchant City Inn, a budget Glasgow Hotel:
