    Accomodation, don't know, but for a reasonably priced and tasty meal, try the Russian cafe, Cossachok, 10 King Street. Wide selection of vodkas available too (as befits a Russian cafe!). Never left there disappointed!

    Glasgow is the best place for nights out :) loads of places to stay like travel lodges, holiday inns etc...all right in city centre. Suggest you go to the garage when you're there! For good food and pubs go to the Merchant City, pancho villas recommended if you like mexican, the Italian Kitchen if you like Italian!

    UNLESS you have hard to walk in shoes on or are totally mortalled- the stairs on the way in/ out hurt when you fall down them all!

    aww shame. There's no other choice though since the shack burnt down! Plus it is across from the canton lauradoll, surely a good enough reason to go!?:shock:

    Although not cheap, the Malmaison hotel is a fantastic place to stay, its right in the centre near to the top of Sauchiehall Street.

    Yeah and you get wicked toiletries in your room there as well! If you can manage stairs then Lucy's right, the Garage is the place to go. I just can't do stairs. Sober or otherwise!!

    Your geography is somewhat out Sellers_bird. It used to be Blythswood Square at the top end of Sauchiehall Street but mainly such delights can be found in the Anderston Area around Cadogan Street. Not that I would know much about that of course.

    Well it depends what sort of budget you have. If your like me (poor) then check out Hampton Court Hotel. I went for the Europeans in April and stayed for 3 nights. The accomodation is basic but you get a reasonable brekkie in the morning.

    Hampton Court Hotel
    230 Renfrew Street
    Glasgow
    G3 6TX

    tel: 0141 332 6623

    The hotel is near to the Glasgow Art School, about 5 minute walk from the city centre and Scottish Academy of Music & Drama. Not far to walk back after a good night out - and the best bit is it only cost me £20 per night bed and breakfast. (ask to speak to Mohinder Singh if you decide to give them a ring)

    Hope that helps
