The upmarket Merchant City to the east of the city centre is a good location if you want to be within range of Glasgow’s top designer shops. For a quieter stay, however, check out accommodation in the network of streets around graceful Blythswood Square. This area is just a two-minute walk from Sauchiehall Street and a five-minute walk from Glasgow Central Station.
There’s also a good selection of places to stay around Glasgow Central Station, including the usual mid-priced chain hotels. If you’re looking for something a little different, try the Dakota Deluxe, a chic boutique hotel on West Regent Street, which recently scooped an award for Scotland’s most stylish hotel.
The leafy streets and elegant architecture of the university district make the West End an appealing option. Soak up the bohemian vibes around Byres Road or find a boutique B&B in the streets surrounding Kelvingrove Park. The Alamo Guest House with views across the park to the University of Glasgow’s soaring spire is a good bet.
The West End is only a 30-minute walk or a 10-minute subway ride from Glasgow city centre and is the place to stay if you want somewhere close to the city with a more relaxed, residential vibe.
There are several cheap hotels and hostels in Glasgow city centre, but if you’re looking for something with more character try the SYHA Hostel on Park Terrace in the West End. With sweeping views from its hilltop perch, it occupies one of Glasgow’s grandest addresses in a Victorian house overlooking Kelvingrove Park, the River Clyde and the University of Glasgow.
You won’t find a cheaper deal in Glasgow for such an impressive location and there are private rooms as well as dorm beds. Other ways to keep costs down include booking early to find the cheapest deals.
If you’re looking for a true taste of Scottish luxury just outside the city, try the five-star Cameron House Hotel on the banks of Loch Lomond.
The epic landscape of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park is just 40 minutes from Glasgow by car and the hotel boasts Michelin-starred dining, a spa, a golf course and seaplane trips from the pontoon outside the hotel. It’s a great choice if you want to experience Scotland’s famous natural beauty but still be within striking distance of Glasgow city centre.
