A new addition to the Glasgow Hotel scene is Grasshoppers.

So just where do you fit in a 30-roomed hotel in an already crowded city?If you commute by train then you've likely walked by the entrance to this bold little hotel on many an occasion. Located right next door to Central Station, you enter Grasshoppers via a doorway on Union Street and then take the elevator to the top floor of the Caledonian Chambers building and it's there that your expectations of a traditional hotel will be challenged.

On my arrival, I was immediately welcomed by the charismatic owner and a glass of Prosecco, just as a group of fashion photographers were leaving. As I was shown around each of the rooms, I couldn't help but notice an air of joviality. Somehow, it felt like more of a social gathering than a typical hotel and therein lies the appeal. From the 30 individually designed guestrooms to the communal dining area, called The Kitchen, where dining alone is frowned upon to the MissPrint handmade wallpaper, Grasshoppers is an interesting exercise in pushing the boundaries of the 'guest experience.' Staff are recruited from non-hospitality backgrounds, instead the focus is on personality and making the guest feel at home, and it works!

Every room has its own Sky box with Sky Sports and Sky News. Then there's the tube of Smarties, the ground coffee and an endless supply of free tea and cakes served throughout the day.

As the Caledonian Chambers was designed by James Miller for the Caledonian Railway Company, you'll never be too far away from the sound of trains pulling into the station below.
