Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ee2jay A comfortable corner
My wife and I have stayed at this location on several occasions. This hotel is situated in a very strategic part of Glasgow city centre.
We have always found the staff most helpful and on this occasion were quickly given a change of room when a fault developed in the hot water system.
Another very satisfying experience!

I have enjoyed my stay thoroughly at Holiday Inn Express, Glasgow City Centre, Riverside. Staff were helpful and pleasing. Though I was new to city,i felt at home. Rooms were clean and well maintained.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CV76 Good stay
Stayed here for one night, hotel is well located for city centre so is good on foot. If you have a car then you need to pay for car parking (although you can get a hotel discount rate which seems decent value), or you can get parked nearby on street for free overnight.
Nice quick check in and was allocated a room at the back (quiet). Room itself was as expected for an Express and seemed well maintained and was clean, only comment was the high windows which seem a bit odd. IHG status was recognised which is always a nice perk however small it may be.
Breakfast area was a decent size although a coach party was in at the time. In summary it was a decent stay and represents good value for money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GF10K Good value with very friendly, helpful staff
Stayed for 3 nights on mini break. Enjoyed our stay at the Riverside hotel. Only quibble was the air con unit in the room which we could not switch off completely and the thing kept coming on during the night. Otherwise very good room and facilities. Breakfast good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Susea Room very comfortable and clean
The staff, without exception were all friendly and helpful. We stayed two nights, with three days in between and they recognised us on our return. The hotel was clean, the room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The shower was good and I liked that you could take it off the wall to rinse yourself thoroughly, some lodges have static showers.
Altogether a very pleasant experience, thank you

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GJW1 Excellent hotel & Excellent customer service
The hotel is in an excellent city centre location with very friendly, efficient staff. I stay at many Holiday Inn Express hotels and found the staff at this location amongst the best for customer service I have come across - nothing seemed to be too much trouble - well done! Breakfast service was friendly and excellent with enough staff to ensure nothing ran out - again, sometimes an issue at some locations but not this one. The only negative aspect of my stay was the road noise from outside which obviously is out of the control of the hotel. Being located next to traffic lights doesn't help. However, I am a light sleeper and, despite the noise of traffic, I still managed to get a reasonable sleep when traffic was light. I would certainly stay at this hotel again for its customer service and city centre location.

The room was comfortable and quiet, if draughty! Every member of staff that I interacted with was friendly, attentive and generally superb. They could not have been more welcoming or more helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Angie90 I had a good stay at the Holiday inn express
The staff were very friendly here and our room was immaculately clean. The only complaint I would make is that the room was very cold I think because of a draught in the window. Apart from that it was a very enjoyable stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by marbhtuirseach what it says on the tin
Friendly check in. Best to request a room allocation before arrival, particularly if prepaid. Rooms at back of hotel are quiet. Comfortable beds. Decor let down by the flaking paint in parts and curtains a little faded but for short stays is fine.Free wifi now. Breakfast was a better experience this time; food warmers function better, less of a rugby scrum effect with people milling around, Good riverside location so easy to walk to Merchant City and other central parts.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jameslw Welcoming and, well, spot on!
It was the sort of grim that only Glasgow could deliver... dark, windswept, rain washed buildings sheltering those of us unfortunate enough to be outside, but simply swapping morale for warmth. It was bleak. Then, as survivors of the apocalypse might, we dragged ourselves into reception. It was perfect from that point on. All was done to make us feel much better, not just the veneer ways of usual receptions, but a genuine effort to make you feel welcome and most special. Ice makers. Proper a/c. A good night's sleep. Let down a touch by breakfast, but, by which time, we were refreshed. Perfect.

To be totally honest, I booked this hotel on the internet by mistake of another one the other end of the Clyde River...
Was not my normal type of place to stay in, without a restaurant or bath etc however the staff where very friendly and helpful and the hotel was nice and clean to stay in, even though Croatia where playing Scotland no more than a couple of miles away in the world cup and so the hotel was full of Croatian supporters and Japanese tourists..
Nice hotel, great Italian restaurant and pub just next door and loved the Wi-Fi in the hotel being free.
Only down side is the limited amount of choice for hot food at breakfast...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TWandFZ Clean, central and friendly
The staff were incredible, they went out of their way to help and to make our stay easy.
The location is a little tricky but so easy to get all the best shopping. Breakfast is generous and filing. The beds comfy. My only negative comment is that the family room is a little bit of a squeeze with two beds in it.
Overall a good experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Peter97 Very convenient and good standard
We stayed for three nights as part of a package tour. The room was comfortable with all facilities and good power shower.
Breakfast servery area was cramped, and hot food choice limited. Everything provided was fresh and tasty, though.
The room aircon unit played up on the last night, but special mention to Grace who got it turned off and provided an extra electric heater to make us cosy. She also worked so hard at breakfast the following morning and always smiled - a credit to the hotel.
Nicely situated close to the river walk and city centre.
All in all, I would recommend for a short break.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MimiJB Dog friendly and excellent breakfast
We took advantage of a free night through our Priority rewards visa card. We arrived at 12 noon and after less than 5 minutes at reception were on our way up to the room. As gold elite customers we also had a voucher for 1 free drink at the bar. The room was a standard double but had an extra sofa bed which was great to sit on. It had the usual excellent power shower and as we were on the 3rd floor it was pretty quiet. Plenty of room for the dog to wander round and air con if it gets too hot.
The staff were very nice and friendly and the free breakfast was excellent. Plenty of choice of both hot and cold food much better than the old continentals you got.
We would definitely recommend this hotel and look forward to staying again.

During my 50 plus years of extensive travelling I have never met two amicable, helpful receptionists as Laura and Agnes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Excellent Staff and comfortable rooms
From the moment we walked in received excellent service from very welcoming staff. Rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was a very relaxed affair no sense of being rushed and could take time to enjoy a great cooked breakfast. Hotel in great location for shops and transport links and by booking in advance with hotel itself got a very good rate. Had free wifi throughout hotel and a courtesy paper. Will certainly stay at this hotel again. Highly Recommend it. Thanks to all the staff who made our stay enjoyable and were great with my young grandchildren.
