Functional hotel - provides a bed for the night and decent enough breakfast when time is a factor. Very confusing stair lift configuration but apart from that all good! Walking distance to all Glasgow has to offer.

I decided to give the hotel a score of four based on the helpful staff and its cleanliness. The location is good, on the riverside and within a few minutes walk of the centre of Glasgow. The minus points of the hotel are that it does not have a restaurant and does not have its own car park. There are restaurants nearby including the Al Dente (Italian) next door. There are also public car parks nearby, some appeared to be more secure than others. If arriving by train the nearest station is Argyle... Read more

The Hotel has now finished its refurbishment of the bedrooms which are very outstandingly decorated in smooth grey and warming colours. Carpets are really luxurious. The bathrooms have also been upgraded with new showers installed. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Ideal place to stop off for a weekend break and in a very central position for shopping and conferences. Stayed for both business and pleasure.

Checkin speedy and efficient, I am a member of their points scheme and everything went very smoothly. Hotel close to St Enoch's , Argyle Street and stations. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. Breakfast was help yourself and a good variety to choose from.

We came for a few days and found the staff very friendly and helpful the room perfect for our needs and there was even a microwave and some cutlery and crockery for use if you wanted to make something yourself rather than eat out. I brought my chromecast as I hate generic TV and I was able to keep myself entertained watching Netflix whilst relaxing at night before bed. I mention this as I find this a big selling point for me as some places don't let you plug things into the tv. I sometimes bring... Read more

Stayed here with my wife and Child, didn't have any double and single available but the room was spacious, clean and had all mod cons that you require, location was good but parking was poor, there was an open space very close to the hotel but it didn't look safe when you see the bar just down form the hotel. They had a rate for a more secure parking in a Q park complex.

We arrived as part of a group and reception staff were very friendly and efficient and all 40 of us were checked in in no time. Our room was spacious, nicely decorated and immaculate. The window looked out on to Stockwell Street, a busy thoroughfare, but it was so well insulated that you could not hear any traffic and we slept soundly. It is ideally situated for the city centre and only 15 minutes walk from the Central Station. We plan to return to Glasgow at some time for a long weekend and thi... Read more

Convenient location, very comfortable beds and pillows, good bathroom. Breakfast was comprehensive and tasty - much nicer than the offerings in North America. Plenty of tables and chairs even at busy times. Too bad the guests insist on using their fingers to grab food instead of the tongs prominently laid out everywhere. Location is convenient but difficult for loading /unloading as it means stopping on the road in traffic.

Within easy access (walking) for the airport, this is a modern well-appointed hotel built for that purpose. Stayed for two nights on the way in and from a holiday destination so was just expecting the basics. Had a very newly appointed room which had been upgraded to a high standard. Very good nights sleep. Meals were fast and convenient and of reasonable quality. Staff were very helpful and friendly and sorted out membership of IHG reducing my second nights bill - thanks.

There??s a lot to like about this HI Express in addition to the competitive price and cheerful friendly staff. It??s located on the corner of a road bridge across the Clyde, within a couple of minutes stroll from the covered St Enoch Mall and shops in pedestrianised Argyle Street. The main stations were close by and so too were stops on the Glasgow Airport shuttle bus. (airport 15 minutes by bus, 10-15 minute walk to stop nearest hotel. Bus every 10 minutes, 15 mins on Sunday) Rooms were go... Read more

Very good value for your dollar. There's a nice car park directly across the street which is very convenient. The location of the hotel to the universities, the high street, and the city life. I did have a very bad experience with my room - My room was located on the far back of the building next to the alley.... I couldn't keep the window open due to the smell of rotting trash directly below the room. But, the bigger issue was the quality of sleep.... Due to the location on the alley, it was n... Read more

This follows the typical Holiday Inn Express formula, relatively cheap and cheerful but with comfortable rooms and everything you need. The location is convenient walking distance from the major shops on Argyle Street and the restaurants and bars in Merchant's city. The rooms fairly quiet, modern and a good size: the bathroom includes hand basin, shower and toilet. The breakfast in 'The Great Room' has improved over time and now includes cooked elements including beans, bacon, sausage and scra... Read more

From the moment I stepped in, I knew I was going to like this place. The staff were brilliant, even before 7am they were happy, joking, and full of life. The room was bigger than I was expecting for a city hotel. Comfortable bed. The only noise I could hear was the pouring rain. I like it when hotels have an extra layer of security, and this one did. You had to put in your key card before you could get into the lift area, and it also looked like there was a key swipe at the main entrance, so I... Read more

I've stayed here a few times but not got around to leaving a review. The staff are uber friendly - cheery, yet laid back. The hotel has everythign you need for a stop over late night/early morning flight etc. I was impressed enough on my recent visit to write a review - which for airport hotels I don't normally do. You know what they are like - high traffic, go through the motions etc. But HI Express isn't like that. Sure the rooms are functional - but they are designed really well to meet both ... Read more

Biggest disadvantage of this hotel is the lack of car park or even a pull-in to unload heavy luggage, it has special terms with a nearby NCP facility but getting to the hotel from there involves crossing two busy roads. The staff were fantastic and the room up to the standard one expects from a Holiday Inn. The breakfast buffet was acceptable even though it was equipped with one of those 'conveyor belt' type toasters that never seem to work properly - in this case it just warmed the bread on the...

Stayed in this holiday whilst on a self-drive road tour throughout the UK, the hotel offered excellent value for money, therefore have difficulty finding any creditable faults. The only real criticism I have and is applicable to all of the other Holiday Inn??s that we found in the UK is the absence of any mechanical fresh air ability into the room other than opening a window. The was a mechanical ventilation system in the toilet, but did not appear to be working. Other than this, the hotel was ... Read more

The best part of the hotel is the location. Situated right in Glasgow city centre, it is walking distance from the royal mile, city centre and river Clyde and even the peoples palace. Rooms are clean and beautiful and very spacious. Breakfast is good but a little more variety would have been welcome specially for chicke eating people. Overall a good experience

Booked for a transparent price that included breakfast and parking this hotel turned out to be an excellent choice all round - comfortable room, well soundproofed and convenient parking nearby. Breakfast was good quality and there were plenty of tables available despite the hotel being busy. I didn't eat dinner there as there was a nice looking Italian restaurant directly next door, but perhaps next time I will give the evening menu a try too.

We stayed for a Saturday night at the end of July and had a good time. The hotel is an easy 5 minute walk from Glasgow Central station. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and spacious. We had drinks at the bar, these were reasonably priced, they also have bar meals. The hotel is across the road from the river and the Clutha pub which is also very friendly. I would happily stay there again.

We were in town for a conference that was around the Royal Glasgow Concert Hall, so this hotel was a bit of a walk, but we liked the peaceful setting on the river, and the proximity to the Merchant City district.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights . Room was air conditioned, clean and comfortable. Great breakfast which is always included at this hotel. Another great thing being so close to the city centre only 5 min walk to Argyle street, is that there's a car park about 200 meters from the hotel, and hotel offers discounted rated to its guests. Would not mind stay there again if i do visit Glasgow once more. Thanks for all the helpful staff.
