We came to Glasgow in Jan 2011 to see John Barrowman in pantomime and stayed at the Alamo. That was at the end of the 2010 panto run. We came again in December 2011 to see him at the beginning of the 2011 panto run. We stayed at the Alamo again. Due to our personal schedules, we could only stay...

We stayed at the Alamo for five nights over the New Year period. It is a stone's throw from the park, and situated in a lovely quiet terraced street very close to all that Glasgow's West End has to offer. The place has a real homely feel, and all the Christmas decorations and huge tree made it a great place...

We look forward to returning to the Alamo House in April, 2012. The location in only one reason to stay here. It is on a quiet side street across from Kelvin Grove Park and Museum. Each room is unique with interesting antique and comfortable furnishings. Even though some have shared bathroom facilities, we have rarely even seen other guests in...

I setup a trip advisor account on the sole purpose to bounce on here and give The Alamo top marks. Stayed here a few weeks ago for one night when the RHCP's were playing in Glasgow. Katya who was manning the guest house at the time was very friendly and welcoming. The guest house has vintage/classy detail and decor. It...

We had a very nice 5 night stay at the Alamo Guesthouse. It is very well located - across the park from the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. It is a quiet oasis away from the noise of the city but only a short bus/taxi ride to downtown. From the very warm welcome at arrival, the atmosphere is very homey....

We recently had a 2-night stay in Glasgow. A group of 7 of us made the trip but as a couple we had left it too late to book into the hotel where the rest of our party was staying, so I booked the Alamo at the very last minute. I am very glad I did! The price was so...

We travelled to Glasgow for a family wedding, with a particular requirement for a small, quiet guest house which could accommodate us and an elderly parent in adjoining rooms. The Alamo fitted the bill perfectly. Steve and his family run a very nice guest house, situated in a beautiful, quiet corner of Glasgow within easy access of the city centre,...
