“Excellent staff”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

I love this hotel,it's perfect for foreign visitors to Glasgow as its 1 minute from Argyll street station and right next to river Clyde.The staff are probably the friendliest and most helpfull staff in Glasgow.Hotel is clean ,cheap,has coffee making facilities in room and free wi fi.I always stay here when in Glasgow and although the breakfast could probably improved on its still very good value.

Room Tip: All rooms are probably same but I prefer top floor as have always found it quiet.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Riverside mid December. We booked via Booking.com and paid £40, which is really good considering the dates and location, just a 5 minute walk away from the centre. Staff was helpful and polite, and we were very impressed with how smoothly everything run. The price includes wifi in the rooms for 2 devices as well as a breakfast buffet. Room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. The only thing we thought could be improved was the quaility of the matress, but overall and in terms of value you cannot beat Holiday Inn Express Riverside!

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the parking area and it was nice and quiet.

Stayed here for less than 12 hours as we had an early flight in the morning. The polish girl on reception was so lovely and helpful and arranged our taxi for the next morning. The hotel is modern and room was a good size. Good walking distance to the shopping centres and restaurants. 20 pounds via taxi to the airport. Free wifi but it was very very slow. Basic but good breakfast included.

I stay in a lot of holiday inn express hotels across the UK but of the older style (combined shower / toilet / bathroom with one door) this is the best by a long way.

Staff - very thoughtful by explaining the various parking options, asked how long id stay the next day to ensure I had the best value parking, so although the hotel doesnt have its own car park it has access / deals with a pay & display NCP in King Street right across the road for £4.95 till 10am next day or with Q-Park St Enoch for £6.50 for 24 hrs, so if your staying the longer than 10am stay in the Q-Park which is just around the corner and is a multi storey. But I stayed on a Saturday and the receptionist advised me to have a look for a space on the street as its free after 6pm every night but doesnt charge for parking at all on a sunday, so she saved me £4.95 minimum as there were plenty of free spaces around the outside of the King Street car park.

Room - Most expresses (esp the new style) seem to have very soft and lumpy mattresses, this hotel had much firmer and comfortable mattresses, very happy with the room and also how clean it was, large flatscreen tv decent range of channels

Location - right next to the main shopping area of Argyle Street with easy access from M8 / M77 / M74 motorways

Considering I only paid £33 which included breakfast I was very happy with the value and would certainly stay here again

I stayed here for Christmas and Boxing day. Quiet and far enough away from the busy area but it's not even 5 minutes until you get to any amount of shopping and dining, not to mention both train stations. Staff couldn't do enough for me.

My husband and I stayed here as we were going to a gig at Barrowlands; the hotel is in a perfect location, ideal for shopping and nightlife and not to mention gigs at Barrowlands. On arrival, we were met with a very pleasant receptionist, I can't remember her name but I think she was Polish - thoughout our stay, nothing was too much trouble and she was always smiling and vey helpful.

Our room was vey clean, couldn't fault anything here at all.

The only downside was breakfast, I didn't find it too bad, but my husband is a vegetarian and thought they could have provided veggie sausages as well as meat ones.

All in all, our 2 day stay was good and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Excellent value for money!

We stayed at this hotel on Saturday and Sunday as we were attending a concert at the Hydro and cannot recommend this hotel enough. Lovely clean rooms nice and quiet the staff were so friendly and could not do enough to help. Special thanks to the wee man behind the bar who gave us the lovely coffee when we came back from the concert very cold from standing over an hour at the Hydro waiting on a taxi to get back to the hotel. (your a wee star) Breakfast was first class plenty of variety , will definitely return to this hotel when in Glasgow as it is also so central for shopping etc.
