East Glasgow apartment owner charges £ 20,000 for five night stay during COP26 summit
An owner of a Dennistoun apartment is charging a whopping £ 20,000 for a five-night stay at the property during the COP26 climate summit next week.
The apartment, located at Finlay Drive, discovered by Glasgow Live, was advertised on hotel and property booking site Booking.com under the term “Glasgow Scenic Views”.
The apartment reads: “Offering city views, Glasgow Scenic Views is an accommodation located in Glasgow, 1.5 km from Celtic Park and 1.6 km from Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome. With free private parking, the property is 700 meters from Glasgow Necropolis and less than 1 km from Glasgow Cathedral.

“The apartment has two bedrooms, a flat-screen satellite TV, a kitchen equipped with a microwave and an oven, a washing machine and two bathrooms with a shower. George Square is 2 km from the apartment, while Buchanan Galleries is located The nearest airport is Glasgow Airport, 13 km from Glasgow Scenic Views. “
A five-night stay at the property between Monday 1 November and Saturday 6 November – during the COP26 climate summit – costs £ 20,000 (including taxes and charges) for two people or £ 18,000 for one person. The prize is non-refundable.
It comes after Airbnb blocked a greedy host from Glasgow who demanded an additional $ 2,000 from a guest for their COP26 reservation.
The Glasgow owner was banned from taking bookings for the COP26 event after asking his guest from America to pay extra or be canceled.
