... it a lot, but it does take quite a lot of energy to continually speak a foreign language. Also, I am not used to living on my own, it is the first time I do not live with my parents and so it takes quite some time and energy to get used to doing everything myself.
I am looking forward to tomorrow! My mum and a good friend will come over! I think it will be good fun to show them around!
It’s funny to notice that my Dutch is actually getting worse, ...
... security though, such as the lady who had decided to wear around 30 clips in her hair and when the beep went and she was told to take them out looked affronted! Cat glided through and Ally waddled otherwise his (belt-less) shorts would have been round his ankles! We got on the train for the last time and then made our way to the gate, arriving in plenty of time to a holding area full of Scottish accents and either very white or very sunburnt people. Soon it was time to board and ...
... were all talking the people around. One guy was lying on the ground not moving from what I could see. I didn't want to hang around so kept walking through the park. Found a big stature and walked on the big green house. Walked around and looked at the plants then went and had a scone with my last penny's. the. Walked through to the big cool fountain before walking down the path to find the palace bit couldn't so walked past this really cool building before waking past ...
... agonizing last I got to the entrance. I slogged in to the bar and asked for a room. They were full, I could camp for free on 'the other side of the bridge.' In my state of mind it was a little like being told I was on the wrong side of the tracks - that I didn't belong here and they certainly wouldn't tolerate my kind...a walker. They catered to rock and mountain climbers and there were people in the bar dressed in expensive gear, bragging abot how many munros they had ...
... pretty city, in Rajasthan, which is the land of the kings, lords, palaces and temples. It’s a hot state coasting in the mid 40’s over summer and not much rain apart from the monsoon seasons leading to all sorts of water shortages. Udaipur however is different, surrounded by mountains and home to 7 beautiful lakes, some of which will dry up by the end of next month. It’s also where Octopussy was filmed which also encouraged Tim to test his Bond skillz on the bike. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Glasgow Loft Apartments
Top notch apartment.
We had a great stay in April and would love to stay there again. The desk staff are fantastic and are quite helpful. The cleaning staff on the other hand are pushy and rude. They came into our place and started cleaning while we were still in the apt. It would've been nice if they "waited" for us to leave. Other than that, the suite is very large (about 900 sq ft or more) and all the amenities are there. As another reader mentioned, the Selfridges & Marks & Spender shops are both very close and are having the kitchen makes dining at home quite nice. Buchanan Bus Station is close as well as the subway and train connections. Wonderful pad and we'd definately recommend it to anyone.
Stayed at Glasgow Lofts in May whilst on a business trip to Europe and the U.K. During the course of the three week trip I stayed in nine different hotels and this was by far the best. Don't be put off by the outside appearance, once you go through the doors and up the lift it all changes! We had two bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with a spa bath and a seperate shower - the other with a shower) and a lounge with open plan kitchen. The lofts are modern and beautifully appointed - light wood floors and cupboards, stainless steel and granite fittings, washer/tumble drier, dishwasher, microwave, convection oven and definately the most comfortable bed of my entire trip. Lots of thoughful touches - detergent for the washing machine, some muffins (with a welcome note attached), bottled water in the fridge and a packet of savoury biscuits as well a really good toiletries. One block down you will find a pedestrian mall with many busy shops - these include Selfridges and Marks & Spencer so you can stock up on microwavable dinners. Free wi-fi internet (very unusual for the UK!) was also much appreciated. I certainly won't be staying anywhere else on my next trip to Glasgow.
Just returned from agreat stay in these lovely apartments. Very modern and comfortable. The floor to ceiling windows were novel BUT offered no privacy as the apartments were overlooked by Travel Lodge and flats. So when in bed the blinds had to be closed! No safe deposit box and we were not offered use of the gym or swimming pool! A great stay though
Loved the interior - don't expect much from the outside
These are apartments as they state ie don't expect hotel service.Tthis is for those who prefer flat type accomodation when away. We found a bit of difficulty locating the entrace as it is tucked away beside an entrance to a furniture shop. From the outside the tower block looks like 60's style flats but the interiors more than make up for it. Rooms are fantastic and location just paralell to Sauchiehall St behind the Theatre is great for out and about night life in the city centre without having to worry about taxis if you are willing to take a 5-10 minute walk. Would we stay again? Most definitely.
Huge, modern, great location!
The apartment was beautiful. Very modern appliances with floor to ceiling windows in the large open kitchen/dining/living room and in each of the two bedrooms. The location was great, too. Karen, who checked us in and out, was very helpful.
Talk about the wow factor ...
The Loft was perfect. My husband and I made use of the 3 for 2 nights option offered on Expedia and stayed the Fri-Mon.
Talk about the wow factor - as soon as you open the door you walk into an open plan kitchen and living area which looks out onto the Glasgow sky line with floor to celing windows. The apartment we stayed in had a fully equipped kitchen (with all the means to cook a meal if you really want to), 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms!
It is extremely clean and well kitted out. It is at the top of the shopping area, with a M&S across the road if you run out of milk.
I would recommend this accommadation to anyone wanting to be near the shopping or theatre district of Glasgow.
This place is so good it should be kept a secret!!!
Stunning from start to finish ! Loved the jacuzzi, loved the whole thing!!!
A birthday treat
I really enjoyed an overnight stay here and would definitely stay again and recommend it. The concierge was extremely helpful, the apartment was spotless and thanks to laterooms I got a bargain deal on the room rate.
I was a bit hesitant about renting a flat as apposed to staying in a hotel in Glasgow, but as I have tried most of city?s hotels I thought I should give it a go, and what a pleasant surprise Glasgow Lofts turned out to be.
