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.
A very welcoming house in a great area of Glasgow. Clean, comfortable and relaxed.
Syinyi and David are exceptional hosts. They made real efforts so my parents would feel comfortable, even despite the language barrier. Their tips on the nearby cafés and restaurant proved extremely valuable as for their general advices on the country.
The beautiful apartment has a remarkable view on the very nice west ends, and is conveniently close to the subway.
We couldn't wish for better !
David is a great host. Just his insight on the cafes and restaurants on the area justifies to come here. They have a priceless map on places to go. Nice conversations and humor too. The house is just as in the images, plenty of light, modern and comfortable. Having been 5 times in Glasgow the zone where they are is the most vibrant one I have stayed. Overall a fantastic place!
We've had a great time at David and Sinyi's place. David sent us an e-mail before arrival with recommendations of restaurants and things to do. This was very thoughtful and handy. The location is great, outside the centre but in a very lively neighbourhood with the subway around the corner. The place is clean and light. We enjoyed our stay and recommend the place.
David was a great host and local expert! The flat is beautiful and in a perfect location in Glasgow's West End. Highly recommend :)
Everything about our stay was excellent. It was easy to find the place using the detailed instructions we were given, David was standing on the doorstep waiting to greet us, and we were deluged with helpful and very friendly advice and information about every aspect of our stay in Glasgow, some of which David had thoughtfully prepared for us in writing beforehand, down to exactly which kind of coffee is best in each cafe. We tried one of the restaurants and had a terrific meal, and one of the coffee shops, which was also a winner. The room was lovely and the flat warm and comfortable. We wished we could have stayed longer. We visited the university so the location was perfect, and we were so glad we stayed in the West End as it was busy and interesting. Thanks Syinyi and David - you really were perfect hosts.
We are enthusiastic Glasgow dwellers who are keen to share local insights with our guests. We thoroughly enjoy our airbnb hosting experience and are excited to welcoming more guests to our home. Please drop us a line - we look forward to hearing from you!
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.
