Came on a wee trip to Glasgow to celebrate my friend Retiremnt party and fell in love with the city and our wee apartment. Glasgow has so much to offer and so friendly. A wee bit rough around the edges though.
Im glad we choose to stay in these apartments rather that a hotel. So much more room and it felt like a wee home. We loved being able to cook our own breakfast in the morning. Only fault would be the freezer is a bit small if you were staying a longer ammount of time. apart from that everything was perfect. We were surprised how quiet the area was as we weren't far from the West End buzz.

Have stayed here previously and was in a different apartment this time, a little bit larger so a bit more space. As before kitchen well equipped with everything I needed. Staff very welcoming and full of information, so far have not stumped them at all. The location is great, very quiet but with everything you need within a 10 min walk.
Would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Stayed here on business and was pleasantly surprise at the space and cost. Stayed for three night and got one free. I've stayed in the sister hotel to these apartments but would recommend the apartments first. Especially if you need room to work

Stayed here in October 2012 with 3 friends for a gilry night out in the West End. We chose this accomodation due to the cost and location which were both excellent. 5 min walk to top of Byres road.

We booked a quad room but 5 could have stayed as there were enough beds in this self catering apartment. We had a lovely clean bathroom, kitchen/dining area and huge bedroom that also had a large sitting area with TV. What a comfortable, clean, spacious, self contained accomodation.

The staff were so helpful at check in, showing us to our room and took pride in showing us around, probably one of there best rooms.

I have given this a 5 as it suited our trip perfectly. If you were staying longer and hoping to be cooking meals-kitchen is small and was short of a few utensils and bathroom is situated in kitchen/dining area, but no complaints from us.

We rented out half of all the apartments in the Embassy (only has 8 apartments) for a family wedding at the nearby hilton hotel. Apartments were great and very spacious. Just what you need when you have 15 people getting ready. Had everything you could ask for and very clean. The woman loved the hair straighteners in the bathrooms. Reception is in the hotel next door and we had a few beers in the hotel while the party got ready which was a bonus. We didn´t expect a bar.

Room Tip: Every rooms is great but room 5 is especially large

We stayed in the family apartment at the Embassy Apartments and were extremely impressed. The apartment was extremely well equipped, spacious and clean. The bedroom could sleep five and was decorated very tastefully in keeping with the Georgian period. After a long flight from Australia it was wonderful to climb into the crisp white sheets and have a peaceful nights sleep. The kitchen and bathroom had everything you would need for self catering and the reception staff were friendly and courteous. There are restaurants and cafes within walking distance plus a lovely park over the road. We would definitely stay here again.
