Loved my stay during the 2018-2019 academic year. I had come for my PostGrad at the University of Glasgow, and although it's a little far from my University, it is well connected by public transport. The bus stop is 2 mins away, Train station is 5 mins, and the nearest subway station is 15 mins on foot. So I did not have any problems for everyday travelling to the University. The management at the reception are the nicest people who'd greet you every time you'd cross the hall. Regular maintenance checks are done. The wifi is decent, the heating/air conditioning is excellent. We'd have socials and free pizza or goodies on several nights. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with my stay here, and will surely miss this place once I move out.

An amazing place to stay, especially if you study at Strathclyde University. Groceries such as Aldi, Spar, Sainsbury and Tesco are very close to the accommodation and do not need to climb to the hills with purchased products. University is 5 minutes walking distance. Train station is also close, but not as close as you do not hear the trains which is perfect. Loved this place and recommended for two of my friends to live in a coming year.

Great place to live!! The location is amazing, even for students studying at the University of Glasgow. It is a 10 minute walk to the subway station, and within 25 minutes you are at the campus. The hall management employees are super friendly, always are up for a chat and directly fix your problems or answer your questions. The fact that there is always someone there gives a safe feeling. The studios itself are very nice, modern, and have airconditioning (!!!). The social spaces are clean and there is a pool and ping pong table, study room and a large tv with playstation in the entrance hall. Also, the windows are double glassed, so there is not much noise from outside. It is probably one of the best value for money you will find in the merchant city of Glasgow. I would 100% recommend this accommodation!

This place is amazing!! VALUE FOR MONEY: It's the best place in Glasgow for its money. The building is new and even the cheapest option of the rooms that this accommodation offers is comfortable enough. LOCATION: The location is perfect. Strathclyde University is just 5min on foot, and you got ALDI stores 3min away as well. HALL MANAGEMENT: They are all so kind and willing to help you whenever the problem is as fast as possible CLEANING! No issues with that SOCIAL SPACES/EXPERIENCE: There is enough room in the building to study like a quiet room, a pool, and a table tennis table as well as a PS4 with a huge tv. The reason I gave 4 stars is that if you are a gym type person you would like to have a gym inside as well something that it was missing but this is not a big issue since Strathclyde sports center is just 5 min away. INTERNET: Fast connections with zero issues OVERALL I'm glad that I have booked a year to Merchant studios, overall it was a great experience!!!

Our overall experience at the accomodation was very pleasant. We enjoyed living here for the past year and would definitely recommend it to anyone who can afford it. The reception and security staff were always helpful and friendly at any time of the day. There is 24h reception so if you are expecting a delivery you can rest assured they will accept it on your behalf and keep it safe for you untill your collection. We had several cases where something needed fixing in our studio and they were always responsive and quick to fix it for us..(usually in the next working day) So if you are looking for a place to live close to uni, in the heart of the city centre and with lots of social events, you should definitely consider this place. -A. and S.

We move into merchant studios to take over someones tenancy, and have already booked for 2019/2020... its a very friendly place to live. Every morning/afternoon your greeted with a smile a hello or even a wave from melissa,scott or david.. the entrance hall is always clean with alot going on at all times wether its people playing chess, or watching sport on the tv.. its a very active building. The staff here are always happy to help what ever the problem, including the night staff. The internet works good no issues.. the building is local to everything. rooms are spacious with plenty of storage..All in all I would highly recommend to everyone. Definitely worth 5 stars!

Great place to stay during your studies. The staff is extremely friendly and always willing to help. I got in as a replacement tenant and everything went really short notice but I could always count on the staff's friendly support. The individual flats are great when focusing on your studies and there are a couple of social events being organized to avoid feeling isolated. The location in the city centre is great although not ideal when studying at the University of Glasgow. The kitchenettes could have been better equipped (no toaster, no kettle...) And the beds and desk chairs are not ideal when you are struggling with back pain. Unfortunately the laundry machines are quite expensive. Overall a nice accomodation when you are looking for some extra calm and privacy to focus on your studies but situated good enough to still go out and enjoy the city.

The best price and location ever for an excellent all-inclusive and spacious studio room! I really like how the room is furnished: a big whiteboard, lots of space to fit in my stuff and keep it organized, a multi-functional microwave oven that helps me create (and be creative of) tons of menus, and an air conditioner that keeps me cozy in every changing season. The staff is super freindly and welcoming, plus very attentive and keen to help. I am very pleased by the flexibility of payment here and will absolutely stay here all three years through my PhD.

Staying with Merchant studios this year was a blast. From the start it was clear that the on-site team were helpful with any questions you may bring to them. Events organised by the onsite team gave great opportunities to get to know one another who live in the building. All the facilities included are in good condition, with easy access to them at all times. The location is amazing with Aldi supermarket being 2 minutes walk away and the Strathclyde university campus being 2 minutes away also. The rooms are great, with everything that you need comfortably packed into the studio rooms. The large windows allow plenty of natural light into the room and air conditioning allows you to keep it at a comfortable temperature of your choice. Extremely happy to have stayed here and have rebooked for next year.

Hi,

 

Thank you for taking time to write us review we really appreciate all feedback. 

 

Our internet provider ASK4 were doing updates around the area, this may have been the time you were experiencing issues with your connection speed, as for our social experience we now almost have a full team of staff at Merchant Studios, we hope now having our friendly night owls on instead of security we will be able to have more events for student social experience within the building. It is good to hear you like the location of Merchant Studios the common room and the hall management.

 

Thanks again,
