The Space

The flat is situated in one of the most up and coming areas of Glasgow, with new restaurants, cafes and galleries always popping up. So you won't have to go far to experience some of the best that Glasgow has to offer! From great new fish restaurants to the famous Ben Nevis pub (with live traditional music sessions and many whiskeys to sample) you could easily spend all your time only a few doors away from the flat. Kelvingrove Park is just around the corner and the Clyde river , SECC, Clyde Auditorium and the BBC are only a 5 minute walk away.

Of course if you would like to venture further than this then the flat is the perfect base from which to do so. Finnieston is located right between the city centre and the West End, with each being only a 15 minute walk away. However if you don't feel like walking (or if it's raining as it does from time to time in Glasgow!) the bus stop is only across the road. The Exhibition Centre train station is a 5 min walk away and the motorway a 2 minute drive. There is free parking a 3 min walk from the flat.

More about the flat...
Located right on the main street the flat is a traditional Glaswegian tenement with high ceilings and wooden floors throughout. The room is a large double and even has its own pully! The flat is warm and homely and comes with the loveliest neighbours in the city. You will have full access to the kitchen, lounge and bathroom. There is a good shower and hot water is always available. One of the most unique features of the flat is the large south facing roof terrace out the back. This is an amazing space in the spring / summer and on sunny days we often eat breakfast, lunch and dinner out here.

Short and long stays are welcome and the flat would suit tourists, professionals or short-term students (it is a 10 min walk through the park to the university). If you would like to know more don't hesitate to get in touch and I'd be happy to answer any questions.

  • Catherine was a very friendly and helpful host. Although she was not there at the check in she organised it very well. We spent three nights in her lovely and clean home in the middle of Glasgow, where many shops, restaurants, busses, clubs etc.are nearby. The two cats are really lovely and curius. We had a great time in Glasgow. Thanks a lot and all the best for you.

  • Catherine's flat is charming and well located. ( I advice the Hidden lane tea room nearby... yummy! ) Catherine was a very friendly host and I hope we will see each other again one day!

  • Catherine was a wonderfully responsive and communicative host. She also has two of the most adorable cats I have ever met. It was really unfortunate that we did not spend more time in Glasgow. The flat was homey, clean, spacious, and an added bonus of adorably decorated. It is also located by some really great bars and restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.

  • Catherine's lovely flat is a perfect little slice of Glasgow. The West End location is great for exploring the Kelvingrove park and museum as well as all the funky shops and cafes of the area. There's loads of restaurants and shops on her street as well as several bus lines nearby.
    The room is spacious and comfy and the terrace is perfect for a cup of coffee to start the morning or an evening glass of wine.
    Catherine is a sweet and considerate host who goes out of her way to make sure you feel comfortable. I wish I had stayed longer!

  • Kasia's flat is well situated for getting around Glasgow. The rooftop is wonderful for sitting on. The bed was comfortable and it was very convenient having the pulley in the room for drying clothes on. The room and bathroom were clean and there are multiple restaurants and pubs within walking distance (Bukharah - around the corner on Derby & Sauchiehall was delicious!). We loved Cafe Toscana right across the street for breakfast and coffees. The area itself seems a bit rough. I don't know how often I would have gone out by myself in the evening if I didn't have my husband with me. The flat itself is secure (although a bit hard to find at first) but the number is only on one side of the door and if you are walking you may miss it.

  • Super apartment, super host, super cats - what else can I say? The location was great with all necessary (and even unnecessary!) amenities nearby. Recommended!
