About This Listing
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.

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.
I had a sadly brief stay with Syinyi and David. Syinyi was out of town, but David greeted me after arriving in Glasgow. He was incredibly welcoming and we had a nice chat after I got settled in. Their home was beautiful and well maintained. I had everything I could possibly need there. Along with David's awesome maps, guides, advice, and general good spirit, my stay there was perfect. I wish I could have stayed with them longer! I would certainly love to grab a pint with them the next time I'm in Glasgow!
The neighborhood was pleasant and near to lots of shops and food places as well as the subway. It was accurately described and just a treat to stay in! I would highly recommend them as hosts, especially if you've never stayed in Scotland/Glasgow. The bed was super comfy and their was a chocolate on my bed :)
I will certainly be looking them up my next trip back! Thanks again!
With 284 positive reviews, it's cleat that David and Syinyi are experienced hosts who will make your trip to Glasgow special! The location of the flat is AMAZING! You will be in the heart of the West End (definitely the coolest area in Glasgow) with tons of options for eating, drinking and shopping! David gives EXCELLENT recommendations- which made our visit extra special. They are both extremely patient and helpful. I was especially grateful they allowed me to use their washing machine! I would definitely recommend this AirBnb locale to anyone looking to stay in Glasgow!
Handy location for West End. Friendly and welcoming host. Compiled a personalised list of local eateries and cafes for us which was really helpful local knowledge. Comfortable bed and clean room. Thank you.
Amazing! David (and Syinyi) were the best hosts I could have had. Great apartment, great location, loads of tips for restaurants and things to do.
