About Monica McCarey
The owners, Monica & Duncan, live and work in Glasgow. They are passionate about art & architecture & formed 'unlimited studios' in 2007, incorporating 'us architects' and 'iota', an arts venue. 'City Loft' was completed in 2012 and is one of their favourite projects to date.
Monica McCarey purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Monica McCarey chose Glasgow
We found this great property- a recently built loft on top of a great classical building, but the interior was in a very sad state of repair - so we invested lots of design ideas and t.l.c in the refurbishment. We and City Loft guests really enjoy this unusual property. City Loft is lovely to spend time in but also in a great location for all the city has to offer, so we use it ourselves when we can, and have family stay here when they visit from abroad. The long south facing balcony is a real bonus.
What makes this Apartment unique
We knew this was a new build on top of a lovely old building, in a very handy part of town, but we had no idea what to expect when we went to view it. It is so bright and airy! We got great satisfaction from transforming it from a neglected, unused space into something so unique. It deals very well with guests various needs - for family, friends, business, culture & tourism, short or long lets. It is unexpectedly quiet but in a really convenient location.

Fab apartment. Spotlessly clean and great location. I stayed with my husband, son and his girlfriend for the Trnsmt festival. Was a bit of a walk through Glasgow centre about 20 minutes walk to the festival but great location for visiting Glasgow a great vibrant city. Everything you need in the apartment and Monica couldn’t be more helpful. Welcome pack really appreciated. I would definitely stay again. Festival was fantastic!
Great time with a family of four visiting Glasgow from New York
This is a great loft/flat -- very spacious, clean and ideal sleeping arrangements for our family of four. Communication with the host, Monica, was great throughout -- she reached out to make sure we were Ok and was quick to answer any questions. It's a short walk to the city center, a doable walk to the west end and close to bus and rail transportation when you want to go further or don't fancy the walk. I'd stay here again in a second.
Hello Gary & thanks for your kind & informative review. We're very happy that you all enjoyed Cityloft so much - especially coming from New York - home of the best lofts! I'm delighted it suited your family visit 'home' so well. Haste ye back!
The location is great for walking in to the city for restaurants and bars , the loft it self is qwerky our only real issue was the bed and pillows , both need replacing , we have never slept in such a creepy bed every move woke us up it was awful and the pillows are as hard and lumpy as rock and need replacing , Monica is a very nice and helpful lady though
Thanks for the four star review. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay. I was so surprised and sorry to hear your comments on the bed and pillows though! We've had many guests stay & haven’t had this sort of comment. Having followed up with you, I’m really sorry you found the bed squeaky (but glad it wasn’t ‘creepy’). As I mentioned when you checked in, we provide a variety of pillows to cater for different preferences, but I appreciate your feedback & will be looking into this immediately.
Best regards, Monica
A Very Pleasant Experience
This is a wonderful flat in an excellent location. It easily fits five with room to spare. It is a very short walk to Cowcaddens subway station, Buchanan Street bus station and Queen Street train station. Many fine pubs, restaurants and attractions are also within easy walking distance. Monica and Rick are very friendly people who do whatever it takes to make the whole experience wonderful. I recommend it highly.
Thanks for the great review, Andrew. We're delighted you enjoyed our City Loft for your first family visit to Scotland. It was lovely to meet you all. Haste ye back!
Great location and amenities!
A short walk to everything downtown. Great beds and full kitchen in a huge top floor apartment. Responsive host, Monica went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and happy. A must stay for Glasgow!
Thanks for the kind review Michael. I'm so glad you, Rachel & the family enjoyed your first Hogmanay at CityLoft, and the benefits of being so handy to enjoy Glasgow at New Year. I hope to see you again. Thanks for the booking & Happy New Year to you all.
Cool, comfortable and well-located
The apartment has a very unique styling, definitely hipper than your average rental. It was well-appointed, we never found anything lacking. We really appreciated that it has two bathrooms, washer/dryer and dishwasher. It is a short walk from the main pedestrian shopping street, and even closer to the lovely little restaurant in the Pyper’s Tryst. It’s also less than 15 mins walking to the two main train stations. We will definitely look to reserve it again next time we are in Glasgow.
We're delighted Cityloft worked so well for your stay. Thanks for the lovely review. Sorry a response wasn't posted previously! Hope to see you soon!
Very central, but away from traffic noise, this loft apartment is in easy reach of a great range of museums, galleries,theatre, ballet, music venues, shops, restaurants and transport links. An ideal location for socialising, culture, study or business trips.
