The flat is situated in one of the most up and coming areas of Glasgow, with new restaurants, cafes and galleries always popping up. So you won't have to go far to experience some of the best that Glasgow has to offer! From great new fish restaurants to the famous Ben Nevis pub (with live traditional music sessions and many whiskeys to sample) you could easily spend all your time only a few doors away from the flat. Kelvingrove Park is just around the corner and the Clyde river , SECC, Clyde Auditorium and the BBC are only a 5 minute walk away.
Of course if you would like to venture further than this then the flat is the perfect base from which to do so. Finnieston is located right between the city centre and the West End, with each being only a 15 minute walk away. However if you don't feel like walking (or if it's raining as it does from time to time in Glasgow!) the bus stop is only across the road. The Exhibition Centre train station is a 5 min walk away and the motorway a 2 minute drive. There is free parking a 3 min walk from the flat.
More about the flat...
Located right on the main street the flat is a traditional Glaswegian tenement with high ceilings and wooden floors throughout. The room is a large double and even has its own pully! The flat is warm and homely and comes with the loveliest neighbours in the city. You will have full access to the kitchen, lounge and bathroom. There is a good shower and hot water is always available. One of the most unique features of the flat is the large south facing roof terrace out the back. This is an amazing space in the spring / summer and on sunny days we often eat breakfast, lunch and dinner out here.
Short and long stays are welcome and the flat would suit tourists, professionals or short-term students (it is a 10 min walk through the park to the university). If you would like to know more don't hesitate to get in touch and I'd be happy to answer any questions.
I don't have a huge list of rules other than the flat is non-smoking.
I would like you to feel at home here and so would like you to treat it as such.
Kasia's flat is in a really useful location in the west end, the ease of access to the city centre makes it ideal for someone unfamiliar with Glasgow to find their way about. It is also close to the park and some of Glasgow's favourite places to eat and drink out.
The flat is lovely, very homely, with two beautiful cats and a roof terrace over looking the hidden lane which catches the sun.
I am writing this review on behalf of the person who stayed in the flat and, although I only met Kasia once, she was kind and helpful and great at anticipating any inquiries that may pop up. She made arranging the booking and settling in the CCA's guest easy.
Thank you Kasia.
Great location . We stayed during the commonwealth games and were close to the Clyde , the city centre and the west end. Argyle road itself is vibrant with lots of good pubs and restaurants just outside the door.
Kasia is a lovely host and we were so relaxed staying in her apartment.
Catherine was a very friendly and helpful host. Although she was not there at the check in she organised it very well. We spent three nights in her lovely and clean home in the middle of Glasgow, where many shops, restaurants, busses, clubs etc.are nearby. The two cats are really lovely and curius. We had a great time in Glasgow. Thanks a lot and all the best for you.
We had the best time in Kasia's flat!!The flat is amazing and it is in the best location in Glasgow! Kasia was very very helpful and nice.She made us feel like home!! Also the cats are the best cats in the world!!!
Lovely apartment, lovely host, lovely cats! Had a really nice stay. Great location between the centre and West End. Kasia is a very welcoming person, almost felt like home. :-)
