Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by two2gether Good location
Visited many times. Usual good location and jump off point for anything in glasgow City.
The hotel is relatively cheap and cheerful aka value for money. Rooms generally clean. Best to get a room away from the main street as still get very low background street noise.
Reception staff usually very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast, fair selection. If you have particular needs then may be best to give a miss or ask way in advance. This last visit was disappointed with the breakfast area - took staff long time to restock/ clean/ clear area. Can get busy. ... was there for a Sunday morning.
Overall experience good.
Breakfast area / service - in need of improvement all around.
Best thing location. Good reception staff and clean and comfortable guest room.

We arrived at the hotel at 9:00 am. From the airport. We were welcomed inn and offered a free breakfast and they held our luggage so we didn't have to drag it all over the city. I believe that this was fantastic...we arrived back at the hotel at 12:00 so tired and they were able to check us in early. If we are ever in Glasgow again we would not hesitate to return. Thank you!

Receptionist on arrival went out of her way to make us feel welcome. We were early and were offered a complimentary breakfast whist waiting. She answered all our our questions efficiently and was very professional and friendly.

Hotel is located in the best area and service is good, but same cannot be said about food, juice next day was diluted, variety of food was much restricted. Everyday egg scramble , someday egg omelette can be there !?

Please clarify this

Another excellent stay at this city centre location. I have stayed here on several occasions and have never had any reason to complain.
Hotel was very busy during this stay but staff still managed to make you feel welcome even during a hectic breakfast period. I will definitely continue to use this hotel.

Hotel was in a good location close to the River Clyde and Glasgow's Merchant Quarter.
Room facilities were as one would expect for a hotel of this level.
Breakfast choice was a bit limited.
Staff were helpful when I asked for information on nearby pubs and restaurants.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Visitor to cultural hull BEST HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS SO FAR
UPON OUR ARRIVAL WE WERE GREETED BY A LADY FROM THE MANAGEMENT TEAM. SHE HELPED ME WITH OUR LUGGAGE AND TOOK ME UP TO OUR ROOM WHILE MY HUSBAND WENT TO PARK THE CAR NEARBY. THIS IS SOMETHING YOU DON'T OFTEN GET EVEN IN TOP CLASS HOTELS!
THE SAME LADY LATER RECOMMENDED PLACES TO DINE CLOSE BY. WE TOOK ONE OF HER RECOMMENDATIONS AND HAD A LOVELY MEAL.
BREAKFAST WAS THE USUAL HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS STANDARD. THE ONLY COMPLAINT I HAVE IS THE PLATES WEREN'T WARM. IT IS FAR BETTER TO HAVE WARM PLATES FOR HOT FOOD THAN COLD ONES. THE BREAKFAST AREA IS VERY RELAXING AND PLATES AND TABLES TIDIED REGULARLY.
THE HOTEL ORDERED TAXIS FOR US AND EVEN CHASED UP ONE THAT WAS LATE.
OVERALL A GREAT EXPERIENCE AND THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS EITHER MYSELF OR MY HUSBAND HAVE STAYED IN. WE WILL CERTAINLY BE BACK.
I AM ONLY SORRY THE GUIDELINES SHOW I CAN'T INDICATE THE NAMES OF THE STAFF WHO PROVIDED SUCH A GREAT SERVICE.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RomanHoliday Great value, great breakfast!
This hotel was a last-minute choice for an impromptu stay in Glasgow, the last stop on a month-long holiday. But for the economical price it vastly exceeded my expectations. The breakfast generous and varied, far from the cold-buns-and-weak-tea I expected. The staff were helpful and friendly (apart from one cold, unwelcoming woman on the reception desk, ironically) and the location was excellent.

I stayed at Holiday Express Glasgow Riverside on an exceptionally hot day, so the ice dispenser in the lobby was really welcome, and we made good use of it. Apart from that, the rooms was quiet and clean, the bed comfortable and the staff really polite and friendly. Recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Engelsman return visit even better than before...
Had found this Hotel perfectly adequate on a previous visit and even better this time around.
Had a quiet room at the end of the corridor, with all amenities working perfectly.
Staff were friendly and efficient, recognised my previous stay and were helpful in every regard.
Would have loved to stay here during the commonwealth games!

Now I've stayed at many a hotel, but this is the first one that has offered me a 'grab-and-go' breakfast when I didn't have time for a sit down. Excellent.
Plus the staff were above the norm - the reception chap was friendly and offered good appropriate advice and the girl running the bar in the evening was friendly and funny - and she even laughed at my jokes. Now that's good service!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Convenient for shops and train to Hydro
Stayed here two nights while at an Eagles concert in the Hydro. It was very convenient for the train station in Argyle Street where we took a train out to the Hydro in the evening which took about 6 minutes and cost £1.70 each. The breakfast was excellent and the staff were constantly checking to see if anything was needing topped up. The room was quiet, quieter than the Holiday Inn in Theatreland (beside the Buchannan bus station) and it had air conditioning which the Theatreland one didn't.

Never having been to Glasgow my wife and I spent four days using this hotel as our base. Very happy with our choice of Holiday Inn Express. The Hotel is close to the City Centre, and we were able to walk to the main shopping and restaurant areas.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dajfiel A bit worn around the edges
This hotel is ok, but it does seem a bit worn
My main gripe was that my toilet roll holder was incapable of staying in the holder.
Then my colleague makes the same complaint about his room, so there's a good chance that more rooms would have this annoyance...

The staff were very welcoming from the minute we walked in and very helpful with room allocation and information about the city. The breakfast - although described as continental - included hot food too. The room was comfortable - although being on the 1st floor by the road - was a little noisy from the passing traffic - however we slept well in the comfortable beds.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by chapster628 Great staff, but parking not great.
Just spent one night there, but would stay again if in Glasgow. The staff was great, the room was good, and the bar/restaurant was comfortable. Our only issue was with the location relative to parking. A parking lot is nearby, but one has to unload luggage on a busy street before taking the car to the lot. Fortunately, the staff runs out to help.
