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 2 minutes walk 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.
You will be able to get into Glasgow city centre in 10 minutes via the subway (underground) or a 40 minutes scenic walk.
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!
The Glasgow West End has been awarded "The Great Neighbourhood Award" in the prestigious 2014 Urbanism Awards.

We unfortunately do not secure room reservation till the booking on airbnb is complete. The bookings will be on first come first served basis.
I am fairly easy going but have a few rules which are based on showing respect for other people within the flat and neighbourhood:
tidy and wash up your stuff after using the kitchen for your own food preparation
keep noise down after 11pm
no visitors of guest(s)
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.
David was very warm n friendly. He let us know the best spots for good food in glasgow west end. Near subway. Very convenient
David hat uns direkt bei Ankunft an der Haustür empfangen. Er hat uns ein riesen Spektrum an Informationen über mögliche Aktivitäten und Lokalitäten gegeben. Er war immer für ein lockeres Gespräch zu haben und gab einem somit das Gefühl, sich sehr wohl und heimisch zu fühlen. Syinyi konnten wir leider nur kurz kennenlernen, da sie die Woche über beruflich in London war. Doch können wir auch nur gutes über sie sagen. Beide sind sehr gesprächig, nett, hilfsbereit und offen. Gerne wieder!
Das Zimmer war sehr sauber, das Bett mehr als bequem und befand sich in einer ruhigen Umgebung. Wir durften die Küche und das Wohnzimmer mitbenutzen - für Kaffee und Tee war gesorgt.
Insgesamt eine Top Location mit Top Gastgebern - 5 Sterne!
A wonderfully welcoming, comfortable, homely stay with charming hosts. They provided lots of local info, I'd love to explore some of the cafés and restaurants they mentioned! Lovely comfy and spacious room, nicely furnished, thoughtful practical features like hair dryer, mirrors, hanging space. Spotless clean. The nicest comfiest bed ever!
David and Syinhyi made me feel very welcome, I felt at home! The flat is very calm and in a great location, in the West End, and so close to the subway, you can get to the center within minutes! David gave me lots of tips on where to go for dinner or coffee. Unfortunately my stay was too short, I need to go back to Glasgow!
I had a delightful stay with Syinyi and David. They are wonderful hosts. They are so quiet that I actually thought they had left the apartment completely for me! David was fantastic sharing with information about various restaurants and the "best coffee" cafes in the city of Glasgow. Sunday morning taxis can be difficult to arrange the same morning...so David so kindly ordered me the Sunday morning taxi, on Saturday night. David also woke up early Sunday morning to make sure the taxi knew which apartment where to stop to pick me up. The apartment is immaculately clean, the bed in the guest room...well it put me to sleep so deeply, as it was so comfortable...and the street is totally quiet. I cannot thank Syinyi and David enough for their warm friendly hospitality.
Amazing area of Glasgow, lovely host and just a really great experience! Would definitely return!
Magic!!!Very nice apartment in a very good location. It was definitely good value for money, would stay here again. The host really kindly .

Personally, I enjoy eating, cooking, and trying out new food, as well as talking about good food. I would be more than happy to share what's nice and delicious in the Glasgow food scene.
