The location is great next to the Beautifull Botanic Gardens. Also just 10 minutes walk to the Subwaystation. Shops like Tesco Express and other placets to eat are just 5minutes away. Nice, clean appartments. But in room 2 there is no airsuction above the cooking plates ! Baking an egg activated the fire alarm. That could be better. And if... More

First stayed here last September and after booking a double room at the Ambassador Hotel next door, found we were "upgraded" to an apartment next door. This apartment was light and airy and had a large living space with sofa, chairs, dining table and chairs plus a large comfy bed. We were very pleased with our stay and had no... More

We are sorry that your stay with us was not as you had hoped. When you stayed in September and were upgraded that was done to suit the needs of the business at the time, you were upgraded to a 3 person apartment because that suited the hotel, however when booking to come back you booked a 2 person apartment,...

I stayed for two weeks in Embassy Appartments in Westend Glasgow. Westend is the best region of Glasgow to stay, nearby Byres Road and Great Western Road. Subway, busses, taxi are on walking distances 5 min. walk. University building, Kelvingrove Parc, Kelvingrove Art gallery, Botanic Gardens, Ashton Lane more than worth visiting and on walking distance of Embassy Appartments. The... More

I live in Glasgow so don't usually need to stay in a hotel here.. However some work on my flat meant I needed to find somewhere to stay for a few days and a self catering option appealed more than staying in a hotel. The only apartment free was huge with 4 beds and separate kitchen/diner and shower room. However... More

Me and my partner stayed at the embassy apartments for 3 nights. The location was just brilliant, 5 minute walk to Byres road and hillhead subway. We stayed in apartment 1 which was massive! Looks right over the botanic gardens. The apartment was spotless, nice and warm, with everything you would need for a short stay. All the staff were... More

My parents stayed in the Apartments for 4 nights, between Aug 29-2 Sep having seen the photos advertising it online and it's having access to free parking. On arrival, they had to squeeze their 4x4 through a narrow alleyway to access the car park and the lighting back to the Hotel was extremely bad. On entry to the hotel we... More

This review has undergone a thorough investigation and we feel the following points are relevant. Firstly we have always understood that Tripadvisor reviews can only be posted by the actual guest and not by someone who has not actually stayed in the property. The actual date of stay was at the end of August and this review was not done... More
