Airbnb has really taken over the holiday rental industry in Europe and around the world. While it is a great idea to ‘live like a local’ when on your vacation, there are some major drawbacks when comparing Airbnb to serviced apartments.

Customer Service

When you book an Airbnb, you are booking a room or house belonging to an individual or family. Your host may be very friendly and generous with their time and knowledge but they won’t be professionally trained like our staff. If you have a complaint, you need to contact Airbnb directly about it so you may be left waiting for hours or even days to have an issue resolved. On the other hand, our highly trained and professional staff are always on hand, at any hour of the day to give you recommendations, help you with any issues you may have and answer any questions you may have about beautiful Glasgow.

Standards

When a property is signed to Airbnb, the owner sends in a couple of pictures and describes the room and they are accepted as a host. There are no standards of cleaning, décor or facilities that must be adhered to. When you book a serviced apartment, every single one of our apartments is decorated to the highest standards. Our housekeeping team are thorough and each apartment is inspected before letting. Our facilities in each apartment are top notch and each apartment has its own personal kitchen and living room area.

Safety

Another hugely important and absolutely essential feature that Airbnb doesn’t offer are safety standards. Here at PREMIER SUITES Glasgow, the most important thing to us is your safety. We ensure to have the highest quality safety features in each of our properties, just in case the worst were to happen. Our safety equipment is regularly inspected and all of our staff are fire safety trained. We always have at least one fire marshal in the building at all times too.

Transparent Pricing

When you book with us, the price you see is the price you pay. Unlike Airbnb, we don’t charge any extra deposits, all tax and insurance is included and the service/housekeeping charge is already built into your final price. When you book an Airbnb, you may be delighted to find a nice room at a reasonable price, but this is not the price you will pay at the end of the day. Our transparent pricing system and best rate guarantee ensure you are always getting the best value for money and what you see is what you pay.

Longer Stays Allowed

Unlike Airbnb which are more suited to overnight or weekend stays, our serviced apartments encourage longer-term stays. We offer you all of the home comforts you cannot live without, including a full-sized kitchen, separate bedroom and all of the privacy you need to live and work from Glasgow for as long as you like. We even offer long-stay discounts so can be sure you are getting the very best deal. Our apartments are even pet-friendly for our long-term guests (28 nights +).
