The Space

You are very welcome to stay in our guestroom - a lovely double bedroom in a 1873 townhouse conversion within a leafy Victorian conservation area. Here you will enjoy a night's rest under the comfy fluffy luxurious sheets, a toasty warm shower/bath (towels provided), and access to speedy WIFI. Also, feel free to enjoy the use of our living room and kitchen; with coffee and tea on the house. A perfect home away from home.

Our place is conveniently located, being just a minute from Hillhead subway (underground) station and the bustling Byres Road with its nice restaurants and cafes offering a wide variety of choices from early morning to late evening. We really like this part of Glasgow ourselves and are keen to share the details of where to try coffee, cakes, croissants, cheese, curry etc.

Most of the Glasgow West End attractions, including the Botanical Gardens, Glasgow University, Mackintosh House and Kelvingrove Art Gallery are within walking distance.

Hillhead subway (underground) station is just a minute walk and will take you into the city centre in 10 minutes.

Your room and the living room overlooks the Kelvinside Hillhead Parish Church designed by the architect James Sellar. It is modelled on the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris.

There are free roadside parking spaces outside our place. However, given our convenient location, it can be a rather busy street. For folks with cars, we are happy to advice on the locations within 100 metres where there are normally spaces.

We have no furry pets.

We take pride in our place and enjoy keeping it homey & tidy. We look forward to welcoming people from various walk of life. We hope to hear from you soon!

note: We are happy to check you in any time after 1pm, but we appreciate confirming this time prior to your arrival so we won't be hanging around the entire day. The latest check out is 12 noon, especially if we are expecting other guests' arrival. We are happy to make other arrangements if required such as dropping of bags early before check in time.

Check In
  • Syinyi and David were very welcoming. They provided a list with excellent coffee shops, bars and restaurants as well as museums and other things worth to see. Great location close to Byres Road and the bed was super comfy.

  • Our stay was short but exciting and David and Syinyi were more than welcoming and helpful. We heard and exchanged stories and were guided to places by the hosts! I give them and their location the highest recommendation!

  • We only met Syinyi briefly and interacted mostly with David, but both were fantastic hosts. They are very much into the local food scene, which was awesome for us. They didn't steer us wrong. The flat was very clean and bright, and David was adamant that we make ourselves at home. Location wise, it was awesome, just a short walk from the subway. David was also quite flexible and accommodating about checking out and holding our luggage while we took our last stroll around the city. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

  • We had a lovely stay in Glasgow. Syinyi and David are very hospitable. They gave us good tips and a very handy map of Glasgow.

    June 2014
  • Syinyi and David live in a very nice house in a dynamic part of town. Pubs, restaurants, shops, botanic garden are in walking distance. The subway is around the corner. As we arrived they gave us a warm welcome and provided us with interesting infomation about Glasgow and especially the West End. So in a couple of hours we knew what was going on in the neighbourhood and where to go. Their house is like the picture shows and we had a very nice room.
    We will return to Glagow for sure and we would like to stay with Syinyi and David again.

  • Supertolle Wohnung! Supertolle Gastgeber! Besser geht es nicht, wenn man stadtnah wohnen will. David hat uns viele gute Tipps gegeben, egal, ob Stadtspaziergang, Essen gehen oder ein nettes Cafe.

    June 2014
  • Syinyi and David,s modern and comfortable townhouse was the perfect place to begin and end our 5 weeks in Scotland. Proximity to the subway and ease of getting to and from the International airport were assets.David and Syinyi were friendly and helpful in every way.The nearby Botanical Gardens were a delight. Sharing their bright and airy home was a pleasure.
