10 minutes walk from Glasgow University, the Metro, the Botanical Gardens and Kelvingrove Park. Next to the river walk that takes you to the Art Galleries and Riverside Museum, CharlesRennieMacIntosh House, also Ashton Lane and all the restaurants, the Hydro, City Centre and O2, 20-25 mins, The Stand 15 mins
the photos I took are soooo bad that Kriss (my friend) took these to show what the front room looks like
Two bedrooms and lounge, bathroom and kitchen, parking for bikes and cars is free. Above the Smile! Italian Cafe
Own Bedroom overlooking gardens. Use the lounge, the wifi, the kitchen and everything thats in the flat.
Fresh towels and linen etc. is supplied
Plus a hairdryer
We can supply you with maps, places to go, what to do and see, best transport etc. (We are close to, well, everything I suppose), you really aren't more than five mins from everything in the west end
Just at the top of Byres Rd, 200 meters from the Botanical Gardens and, well pretty much everything really. It's also free parking, but the buses to the countryside are also just 5 mins walk away (on Gt Western Rd).
All buses and the Underground are 2 to 5 mins away
Lovely walks and pubs. Fantastic restaurants, its just a great place to live,
Use the whole apartment
Interaction with Guests
Happy to help. I have maps, local info, guides and travel info, a cuppa tea and a wee chat with an introduction to The Friendliest City in the World n
(That's official! It's an actual Award)
Above a great Italian Cafe, with two others within 200 meters. (but you get a discount from Smile! Cafe because Santino loves AirBnB too.)
Beautiful riverside walk 100 meters away, with over 50 restaurants and pubs within a 15 minute walk. Plus, 9 museums, botanical Gardens, 3 parks all within 20 minutes.
7 minutes (I geekily timed it) to Underground system and 4 minutes to all major bus routes, though, you can easily walk anywhere from the apartment.
Other Things to Note
You can call, text, email me about anything. You really are welcome. Good communication seems to keep the stress of your journey down as much as possible. Also, you can check-in anytime, I've had guests arrive at 6.30am and at midnight (that's EasyJet for you) its not a problem,.
Relax and have an enjoyable time. Your on your holidays!
Dave was extremely personable, patient, and helpful. He was always available and even took the time to book us a cab (last minute) from the airport to his flat and also gave us plenty of recommendations for unique and memorable eating and sightseeing locations. He provided us with appropriate amenities such as umbrellas, hair dryers, towels, etc. My friend and I would definitely recommend booking Dave as your host.
couldn't have been a better stay! Dave hospitality made our stay although we barely saw him while we were there since we were out wandering the town all day! The room was really beautiful, and the apartment is very nice, the area is perfect, cute cafés and some of the best food we've eaten this trip. Easy access to public transit and public parks. A great spot! I totally recommend staying here. :)
Dave has been a wonderful host before, during and after our stay in Glasgow.
Communicating with him before our arrival was very easy and he welcomed us with a nice cuppa tea when we arrived. The apartment and room were very nice and quiet, yet well located in the city.
Dave was a great host as he advised us on what to see and do in the area, he even took us on a tour around West End, on the bank of a river and to Glasgow University which was very worth it!
After we left Glasgow and when we were touring around the Highlands, he was still helpful and ready to help.
As many people, I would definitely recommend Dave for your stay in Glasgow!
Thank you so much!
Dave got in touch to make arrival straightforward & everything went according to plan. Reality is that its very easy to sort everything out given Dave's arrival/key arrangements.
Its the perfect spot in Glasgow to stay, Parking is easy, University is close by, Great eating & drinking to hand & award winning Smile Cafe immediately downstairs. And the flat itself was perfect!
... it had been a very pleasant stay at Dave's :-)
Unfortunately, we could stay for one night only - but if there would have been more, then Dave was able to tell a lot of tips for his city.
THANKS A LOT.
A very enjoyable stay with Dave he was very helpful and informative and had lovely coffee.
Dave war ein angenehmer Gastgeber, der sehr großzügig Informationen und seine Wohnung zur Verfügung gestellt hat (von sehr nützlichen Tipps zur Anreise über den Aufenthalt in Glasgow bis zur Abreise und weiteren Reisetipps für Scotland). Gemütliches Zimmer in den ruhigen Hinterhof mit Garten, wir konnten uns auch in Wohnzimmer und Küche zuhause fühlen. Thanks a lot!
I love walking, reading, eating. Love good friends, conversation and cooking Love animals, sunshine, rain, snow. I'm a wee bit shy but people say I'm a cheery little fella and easy company. I'm five foot seven inches tall (that's not tall) so I don't take up much space. Text me even if you just want any info on Glasgow, I'm happy to help out if I can. Now, if I can just figure out how to add a photo...
