Why Raymond chose Glasgow

For me, the 2 big 'pull factors' for this property are (i) location - being where it is, everything Glasgow has to offer is quite literally on your doorstep and (ii) architecture - room size didn't seem to be a problem when our building was built (@ end of the 19th Century) ... our rooms are large.

Host Raymond has thought of everything! Great flat in a magnificent city. Everything one could need within walking distance -- trains, buses, markets, bakeries. Vibrant, lovely Glasgow at your beck and call. Modern kitchen, great shower, comfy beds.

A perfect location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for an entire week and were thrilled with this apartment. The location is ideal. You can walk everywhere! We used only two cabs for the week...to and from the airport (and that was only because we had a LOT of luggage).

Raymond was very attentive. He met us at the apartment upon arrival and went over all of the specifics (and included an excellent manual with those details in case you forgot!). Other reviewers made comments about the noise. Get a white noise app on your phone and play that while you sleep, you'll be fine. The location makes up for any noise that may have been present on Friday and Saturday night only.

We will be coming back to Glasgow in 2018 and we will be sure to book this apartment again! Great place, Raymond. Thank you for sharing it:)

Great apartment in city centre

  • 4 of 5

A lovely apartment in the heart of the city. Lots of room for the three of us and very central for sightseeing, shopping, restaurants etc. Raymond was really helpful and a great host! The place was spotless and very well equipped. The only downside is the noise - having arrived from the Highlands we may have been particularly sensitive - but Glasgow is a party city! Having said that, by the second night we zoned out and slept well. Would definitely recommend.

Very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The apartment in Glasgow is very spacious and comfortable and a pleasure to be in.

Raymond has set the apartment up well. There is a great lounge room with very comfortable sofa and chairs as well as a dining room table and a lovely view from each of the windows. The photos are exactly what you seen when you arrive.

The kitchen is very cook friendly with everything you need to cook a great meal. It also has a lovely street view which adds to the fun of cooking.

Bedrooms and bathrooms also great size and very comfortable. The whole apartment has a very warm and welcoming feel.

Raymond is wonderful. Answers emails very quickly and was there to meet us when we arrived. He gave us great tips on shopping and eating out. There is also a good book in the apartment that has lots of helpful information about what to do and what to find around the area.

Our only concern is the noise at night. The apartment is close to a nightclub and it can be noisy until the very early hours of the morning.

I would recommend this apartment because of Raymond's great professionalism and help, the high standard of the accommodation and the location.

Very well appointed, everything you need. Central for absolutely everything you want in Glasgow

  • 5 of 5

Raymond is a charming host, met us and gave us a very comprehensive tour of the flat - nothing was too much trouble. We arrived late and complimentary fresh bread, milk and breakfast cereal were bought in ready.

The flat itself - much bigger than we'd expected - the rooms are very large but warm.

Beds comfortable - everything spotlessly clean.

Parking is easy on the street overnight - unusual for a city centre apartment - and Raymond has a great deal with a local car park that saved us over fifteen pounds per day on parking.

The flat is in the heart of Glasgow which makes it super handy for anything you want to do whilst in town. Because its in the centre it can be noisy at night but that's a small price to pay for the convenience of the location and overall set-up of the place.

Outstanding Central Glasgow Location

  • 5 of 5

Having lived in Britain for 30 years and never once given Glasgow a second thought in all that time, I have not come to regret that omission.

Glasgow is great and this rental apartment is fantastically centrally located that you don't need a car.

Or at least we didn't on our explorations. Having said that, our explorations took us to most of the restaurants on our block, an Italian, Japanese, French and a couple of cozy cafes serving the most delicious bacon breakfast sandwiches. In our week, we didn't get time to get to them all. If you want to walk further, say to Jamie's, then it's not far and easily within reach by foot.

The apartment does have a full kitchen and we reluctantly decided to eat in one night, but even 'at home' you're still surrounded by the most beautiful views, it's as if you're in a down town restaurant above the streets.

Exploring without a car was so relaxing, that when we went out of town to Edinburgh or Dumbarton, both Queen Street and Central railway stations are literally only 5 minutes walk, 3 blocks at most, away.

If you're legs get tired from walking, look out for taxi's with their orange light glowing, because they can be waved down in almost telepathic accuracy: it seemed like a taxi was always anticipating your waving arm and would appear almost immediately.

The apartment was easily located off West George Street. Access through a key-fob is easy and quick and saves messing around with locks. There's an elevator lobby but we were close enough to use the stairs most times. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very well apportioned, with two big bedrooms warmly decorated. There's full kitchen, living room with the corner location, giving fine views to West George Street and Renfield Street.

The owner was warm and friendly and gave great advice about what to see and where to go locally, such as the 'Wonder Cafe' across the street.

Now about the weather, to which nobody has control. We'd been living for 4 months in a heatwave at home, without rain and in a drought. Coming to Glasgow in late July, with cooler temperatures was a delightful change. So even the days that it rained could not dampen our spirits; to the extent that we happily took to the upper floor of the open air City Sightseeing Bus tour. If you dress appropriately, the weather is 'ne-bother'.

If we'd be lucky enough to go back to Glasgow, I hope that we could stay in this apartment again.
