The house was really nice, and Vassilis&Tulay are just awesome hosts. They offered us coffe and great conversation, we also loved our breakfast. Room was spacious and very well kept, as the rest of the house. I would strongly reccomend it to anyone.
I knew the neighbourhood already and it wasconvenient for me. My hosts made me very welcome and I enjoyed a chat with them at breakfast and in the evening. The description was accurate.
Vassislis and Tulay are the ideal people to do Airbnb. They welcome you into their home and do their utmost to ensure that you enjoy your stay with them. The room was a nice size, with a comfy bed and it was great to be able to park the car just over the road. We had a great meal on the night and Tulay expertly coached me through making the bread to go with diner!! A hot shower in the morning, a good breakfast and it is only a short walk down to Duke Street to catch the bus into the city, which takes less then ten minutes.
A great place to stay. Thank you!
We had a perfect evening, the home is beautiful, clean, and we were made to feel right at home with some incredible treats and a lovely, generous lunch.
We loved our short but sweet stay in Glasgow. Clean, warm and comfortable bedroom. The bathroom and rest of the house were also lovely. We were warmly welcomed by Vassilis and felt completely at home. Vassilis was extremely friendly and gave us lots of great recommendations for tourist activities and places to eat and drink. He also made us delicious breakfasts. Great location 20 min walk from city centre, and just down the road are a nice selection of eating options and great British pubs.
Vassilis makes us feel like we were at home. Despite the bad weather, he gave us very good advice about places to visit in Glasgow and thanks to him we enjoyed our week end in this city. The breakfast is perfect, the room is tidy and very clean. I would recommend this host if you want more than a simple room but also meet very friendly people.
Wir haben uns bei Vassilis & Tulay sehr wohl und willkommen gefühlt. Die Unterkunft liegt relativ Stadtnah in einer ruhigen Umgebung.
Das Frühstück war reichhaltig, lecker und brachte uns gut über den Tag!
Wir können Vassilis & Tulays Unterkunft wärmstens empfehlen!

We love exploring new cultures, places, cinema, good food and good company, and when we are at home, watch our favourite series, a good movie or some stimulating documentaries ! If there is a good company we are always happy for a round of Trivial Pursuit or any other board game !
