Somewhere in the Merchant City. Plenty hotels around there.

Hi
There are two options really, the centre of Glasgow - There are quite a few hotels and the pub scene is fun. Someone described to me as what Dublin was like before it became affluent. However, try the West End which is lively and has lots of great pubs and restaurants. See http://www.glasgowwestend.co.uk/

Anywhere in central Glasgow but probably the West End. The central core is not that big and you can easily walk.

Hawkhead is right the central core is not that big but if you centre yourself on the charing cross area ,you get all the fun of the west end of charing cross and the student bars/clubs/and casinos,the former being not just for students but is a reflection on the prices you will pay once you get inside.You can get a good value room at etap hotel 3 people in a room for £32 but it is a walk /taxi to the city or you could try www.american.glasgowhostel.pl ,rooms are same price as etap but its not ensuite but it has the huge bonus of a good well equipt kitchen and in the heart of the Charing cross area.

Definately the Centre. There are premier Inns and Hilton etc aplenty. I would not sta in the west end, but it is definately worth a visit, only a short ride on the underground. Staying central gives you acess to all the shopping of Buchanan St, Princes Sq etc.

Agree that it`s better to stay in the city centre.

Travel Tips for Glasgow

... talk to the locals and get...

by FrancaLingua

... talk to the locals and get a sense of their humour... gaze at the architecture (in many ways, rivalling Edinburgh's, even though Edinburgh gets exponentially more tourists). Some of my fondest memories are clubbing late into the night and then stuffing our faces in the wee hours at Change at Jamaica (is it still there??) ...

I lived in Scotland for two years, based most of the time in Edinburgh, but learned to really appreciate Glasgow's many great qualities. Because of its size and layout, it's not as tourist-site-accessible as Edinburgh, but if you've got a good map and some time, there is a great deal to see. The university has some fantastic buildings.

Let your hair down

by fluffybunny

Glasgow people are earthy and are very pleased to see foreigners come to visit their city. They are very pleased to help in any way they can and don't be afraid to ask for assistance. They are a little shy though and won't make much of an effort to talk to you unless you initiate the conversation.
To see the real people of the city you must head away from the tourist part of town and get on your best walking shoes and simply explore.

NB Once you get them talking they won't stop!!!

Celtic

Celtic play at the excellent Parkhead stadium, and are known as "the Bhoys"
Tickets should be ok to come by, except big euro cup games or against Rangers.

Stadium can be found in the Parkhead area.

JUMP IN A TAXI AND ASK FOR THE SARRY HEID.

Planning

by RPW about Various

Glasgow is such a big place that it's hard to get round some of the pubs that you might intend going to. If you are heading to Glasgow and intend having a few drinks out on town try to make a wee list of where you want to go, it's amazing how close some of the better pubs are to each other. Any time I am taking visitors out I try to make a little agenda up and head in a set area. Taxi drops me off at the top of Renfield St and we can then do about fifteen decent places all in a close proximity. Or get dropped at George Square and do the same, Byres road and then do Ashton Lane etc. Most Glasgow places in town are smart but casual, very rarely coat and tie, jeans are usually ok in most places, a few will perhaps use it as an excuse just to knock certain people back. Shoe wear again depending on the individual and the people who are with him/her. Clubs maybe be a bit more specific.
