“Not Touristy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

The West End isn't very touristy. It's kind of refreshing really after spending weeks in mostly tourist areas. There are small shops and restaurants lining the streets. It's really an alternative area but there's a lot to see!

“Busy and alternative”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Lots of little places to eat and very busy. Wouldn't take small children as there isn't much for them but worth a visit if travelling as a couple. Lots of places to get a drink and snack or cake!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

With Byres Road night life, great shopping, Botanic Gardens, Art Galleries and Museum, Glasgow University, lots of hotels and SYHA superb hoster all within comfortable walking distance why stay elewhere? Underground Subway whisks you into central Glasgow in 15 minutes.Attractive side streets and cobblestone lanes to explore. You won't be dissapointed.

“West End is the best place to stay in Glasgow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

I visited Glasgow when my son started his Erasmuscourse on Glasgow University. We had an appartment in West End and my son got there a room in an old victorian house. This part of Glasgow really has atmosphere. Great to walk in the old streets. Great Western Road and Byres Road are the centre of West End and are wonderful. Go and visit the University buildings, The McIntosh House, the Hunterian Art Gallery, Kelvingrove Art Gallery, and the Botanic Gardens. You won't regret it.
