Q
Do the rooms have space for a lot of clothes and storage?
By member1161833 On 20th August 21
Yeah decent enough space! There's underbed storage for suitcases or larger things, and the wardrobe has drawers at the bottom :)

Excellent location, supermarkets, shops, subway, bus stations 1 min walking distance away which is super convenient. The building inside looks fresh and has a great renovation. Views from the Clyde rooms are some of the best you can get in town. The receptionist Ali is a very pleasant guy and will solve all your problems. Overall perfect place to stay, can't recommend enough!

My time spent at Riverside house was lovely. The location is right in the center of Glasgow, almost on Buchanan Street which is perfect. My room was spacious, modern and clean and the wifi was strong. During Covid, the staff went to many lengths to ensure we were all safe. Ali who is on reception is great, always a friendly face to chat to and would do anything to help you out. I would definately recommend staying at Riverside House.

Location is amazing it’s close to the shops, train station etc. The rooms are clean. If you’re looking for a quiet place- this is it ! The receptionist Ali was really nice and welcoming. Giving 4 stars because i had some issues with my room (heater was broken, leaks in my bathroom etc..) but i guess it was just the room that was given to me unfortunately.

If you want a quiet place to work, this accommodation is perfect. The building is secure and the view over the Clyde is fantastic. In addition, Ali, the manager, is very attentive, kind and helpful. If we have any problems, we can really count on him

The on site management staff, especially Ali are fantastic, always there to help. The building is in a great location right in the city center close to shops and the main train station. The main issue with Riverside is the Company operating the building. During covid they did not provide proper support such as refunds for less amenities provided, staff time on-site etc. also the front door has been intermittently broken for the past week which has been reported numerous times but not properly fixed.

This was my first time staying at Riverside and I could not have asked for a better place to live. I am a mature student and did not have any issues. Ali was awesome. Anything that we needed he was there to help even if we just needed someone to talk to. The Covid-19 lockdown was hard on many of the students, but everything in our building ran smooth and if there was an issue he was on the case even if it was 3 am. I would recommend this student accommodations to anyone.

Been staying at Riverside House for 2 years and have only good things to say about it. In my opinion, great value for money. Situated very close to St Enoch's subway station and Central. Excellent support from the on-site receptionist Ali, who is always happy to help and answer questions.

During the year I have been able to compare with my friends' accommodation and I am very happy to have chosen this one. Riverside is really very well placed (Central Station, shops ..), always very clean, rooms are really comfortable and in general the accommodation is pretty quiet. I plan to stay next year for all these reasons but mostly because of Ali, he is always available and helps us a lot. I know that if he's here I won't have any problem about anything.

I've enjoyed my year here, I really like my studio and I was able to make my room feel very comfortable. I've generally gotten along with my housemates very well and I've gotten along with staff well too. Everyone has been kind, friendly and respectful and generally the handling of measures needing to be taken due to the pandemic has gone swiftly. Being right by the city centre has been really convenient and the experience overall has been good.

Living at Riverside this year has been great and helped me to focus on my studies in a calm and welcoming environment. The river front location is a nice change from the hustle of town while still having easy access to all of Glasgow. Ali is always available at reception for a motivational chat or to help with any problems or advice.

Riverside is very central, clean and spacious. Ali is very helpful and the wardens are nice. There aren’t many social events as people tend to keep them self to themselves but that didn’t bother me as I also do.

Not the best Student Halls. Would recommend looking elsewhere or making sure ur agreements are in writing as staff and management like to forget they promised you something. Not the only one who feels this way. Regret my decision and so does my parents tremendously :(
