This is a modern well appointed chain hotel of the usual design, nicely positioned almost next to the river and within easy walking distance of the City centre, Merchant City, venues and nightlife. It is opposite the Clutha Bar, site of the police helicopter tragedy in 2013. Parking is available at cost in the NCP a couple of minutes walk...

Having stayed here before. I decided to book again. Very disappointed! Rooms have been upgraded but to be honest they are not a great standard. Obv it was the cheapest in the area for a reason. Will stick to other hotels in future which is a shame.

I returned to the Riverside Holiday Inn Express on my own on a brief business trip. The high standards I found on my previous visits had been maintained and the friendly staff remembered me and asked after my family. The morning I left, the staff were collecting for charity and were all dressed as superheroes. They demonstrated a real warmth...

A clean, comfortable hotel with wonderful and friendly staff. Breakfast had a wide variety of hot and cold foods with plenty of seating in the breakfast area. Staff gave excellent recommendations for restaurants when asked and the hotel was very neat and clean. Good location for walking to everything I wanted to see and do.
