Finnieston is THE hip Glasgow neighbourhood of the moment: ridiculous supply of bars, restaurants and coffee shops and ideally placed for city centre and loads of tourist destinations!
This listing is for the whole flat (2 bedrooms)!
Finnieston... the little bohemian spot nestled between the West End and City Centre that I like to think of as Glasgow's own little piece of New York :-)
With its rich shipbuilding history and unbeatable location, there is no better base to explore Glasgow than from Finnieston!
Finnieston has an off-beat and laid-back vibe... it boasts some nice street art including a couple of cool murals and is home to The Hidden Lane (the flat overlooks it) which houses artist studios, band rehearsal rooms (both Mogwai and Belle and Sebastian have rehearsed there, indie fans!), a wee art gallery and an amazing vintage tearoom which you must not leave without experiencing!
Finnieston has a truly dazzling array of cafés and eateries... from Korean to Thai, Indian, Italian, Greek, Scottish, sushi, tapas, vegan and seafood. It is entirely possible to sample food from a different country every night of the week!
And then there's the bars...
We have the Ben Nevis which has a great selection of Scotch Whisky and regular live folk music, the Ivy which plays host to occasional DJs, the Big Slope with it's pub quiz and great food and The 78 which serves up awesome vegan food and music... a dub reggae night on Thursdays and live jazz on Sundays!
There is an abundance of attractions all walkable from Finnieston... Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Kelvingrove park, the river Clyde, Glasgow University, the Museum of Transport, the West End and City Centre (both about 10 mins), the SECC and Clyde Auditorium.
You can't get much closer to the SECC (unless you opt for a cardboard box in the car park!). It is about 10 mins away by foot and 3 by car. Taxi would be an option too if it's raining or you're in a hurry...
The flat itself is on the main road (Argyle St) in a characterful Victorian "tenement" block. It has high ceilings, stripped wooden floors in the living room and hall and all the original features of the period.
Transport-wise, there's a bus stop right outside our door and we're 5 mins walk from SECC train station. We are two mins from M8 motorway too but unfortunately the council introduced parking controls recently so not so suitable for you if you are brining a car. (There is a paid car park about 10 mins walk towards town that could be an option if you're keen.)
We have wireless internet (WiFi) and cable television. Towels and bedding are provided.
So... go on and book your stay today - I look forward to hosting you!
PS unfortunately, due to a bad experience, I cannot accept young children, sorry :-(
*** SPECIAL NOTE ***
If you book, please, please, please be sure to locate and print out your AirBnB Itinerary! It contains detailed info on traveling to, finding and getting into my flat. This will make your whole experience much more pleasurable and hassle free :)))
Interaktion mit Gästen
I am totally available via your AirBnB app -- hit me up with any questions at all and I'll normally get back to you within minutes (assuming I'm not sleeping!)
There's a back court with a view over the Hidden Lane on the first floor if you want to smoke!
If you're staying for more than a few days, would you water the plants please? (Once a week is fine.)
No candles or naked flames in the flat please...
Oh, and would you mind taking your shoes off when you come in?
Recycling: plastic bottles, paper, cardboard and cans go in... not food cartons or tissue paper.
If you move furniture or items between rooms, can you please move them back before you leave?
If you must unplug wires from the PC or television equipment etc, please can you plug them back in before you go?
For maximum brownie points - and only if you have time before you go - I would really appreciate you stripping the beds!

Love music, love cinema, love travel, love snowboarding, love scrabble!
My wife and I have just relocated to Arizona, so we let out our Glasgow place through AirBnB when we are not using it (which is most of the time!).
Both the Islay cottage and Glasgow apartment are managed locally so you can be assured of a smooth checkin and a relaxing stay, just check our reviews.
Look forward to hosting you!
