I passed a very good stay in this accomodation, the flat is realy fine, there are a lot of space. The bathroom is a few old but all every other thing are very ok.
As a first time airbnb user, I wasn't sure what to expect. I'm a 60 something sport consultant and I'd say my norm while travelling is 3-4 star hotels but my budget dictated a different apporach during the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. All the prices had been 'jacked up' and 'Nice Room with a Great View' was no exception although it did meet my price point.
I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Olenka but was met by Luiz, her roommate. I learned that I would be sharing their flat with two French summer exhange students. Luiz, therefore, left shortly after meeting me and giving me a set of keys. I did receive emails or texts from both of them during my 10 day stay asking me if I needed anything.
The flat itself was old and somewhat rundown. Maybe 2 stars on the hotel scale. It was, however, clean and the bed was comfortable. The view was as advertised although I didn't need the flat for the view.
It was good to have access to the kitchen to make my own meals and also to have access to a washing machine to launder some clothes.
Overall, while it met my needs in terms of a place to lay my head at night (I spent most of my day at Commonwealth Games events), it is probably more at the hostel or student dorm level of accommodation. It may be great for young student type travellers but I wouldn't recommend it for others.
I'd assumed the 'bnb' of airbnb was bed and breakfast which, of course, was not part of this package (I was aware of this in advance) and had hoped to be able to chat with my local host a little more to help me find my way around better. Unfortunately, that was not the case but I managed nonetheless. Glasweagians are a very friendly folk and bent over backwards to help visitors to the Games.
Olenka is an awesome host with an incredible gift for making people feel completely at home in an unfamiliar environment.
She did everything to make me feel instantly familiar and comfortable with my new home for 2 weeks in Glasgow. It's such a shame that she left for home soon after I arrived!
The facilities available within 5 minutes walking distance of her apartment made it even better! The gym, lovely Italian Cafe, grocery stores and proximity to town just sweetened the deal!
Olenka was such a great guest!
Great timing and communication!
She left the flat very clean and tidy!
No problem at all! Great guests, hope you have you back again!
Olenka is a truly good friend and she always can make you happy with her smile and her magical voice!
I had the both pleasures to host and be hosted by Olga. She is one of the sweetes and nicest person I ever met. She brings joy and happiness wherever she comes! I trust her on the highest level and would recommend her for anything.
