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.

Having trouble completing an airbnb booking? We require all our guests to have airbnb Verified ID.
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.
Great stay at Syinyi and Davids place in the west end. David was looking for me in the street as I approached looking lost, so that was nice. Really friendly guy. Lovely big bright room and everything was spotless. This a great place to stay in Glasgow. Thanka
Thank you - everything was great!! Syinyis boyfriend David gave us a very warm welcome at our arrival and provided us with lots of useful information about the city. The flat also is very nice and located at a perfect location in Glasgow (West end / near Byres Rd, with all the nice cafes, pubs, restaurants and shops).
I definitively can recommend this place and we will probably be back soon :-)
Another fab stay! Thanks so much guys. I'll be back.
David was a great host! Everything was made to make us feel at home and David & Syinyi gave us some great tips to discover their city- excellent to make the most of our journey!
The flat is very clean and furnished! Well located in the beautiful area of the west end of Glasgow.
I highly recommend this place with very warm hosts! :)
David made us feel very welcome. The information he gave us about places to go and things to see helped us make the most of our short stay. The location was great- an interesting area and a nice walk along the river into the city centre. We managed to get a parking space just up the road. The flat was warm and comfortable. We would highly recommend this room!
David was a great host, great area to stay, flat was quiet, warm and clean. I would recommend to anyone visiting Glasgow.
