Large bedroom featuring private bath, comfortable queen bed/w/eider down duvet in a quiet, sunny, Victorian house in Capitol Hill. Located 15 blocks from Downtown & Convention Center, 1-2 blocks from 3 bus routes, 10 minutes from Cherry Creek & major highways, its a great house in a great location.
I only open this room when the other airbnb room I have is occupied and in the event that two requests come in at the same time and there is an overlap of only a few days. To see pictures of the house and for a further description, please refer to "Private Suite in Capitol Hill"
Guests are welcome to use the common areas of the house and garden.

Cynthia was a wonderful host! She goes above and beyond for her guests, making them feel at home. I could not imagine a better experience! She communicated with me to coordinate my arrival and made it a point to be home to welcome me. I was staying with her while visiting my daughter who lived in a studio apartment in the same neighborhood. Her home was even lovelier than I imagined. I had my own room with a bath that was spacious and included a library of books and movies. It was wonderful to be able to be in a beautiful neighborhood where you could walk to everything. My daughter and I were able to walk back and forth from her apartment to Cynthia's home easily and this made the stay so special. Cynthia even made soup for me!
This is a lovely Victorian home, tastefully decorated and a great location to explore the city. Cynthia is a warm and hospitable host. An artist and linguist, very well informed about the city she is a very interesting person to get to know. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
Cynthia was very welcoming. The house was quiet and clean. I would love to stay at her place again I felt like at home there.
I honestly can't think of any way my experience could have been better. Cynthia was very warm and welcoming while still respecting the privacy of her guests. The house is a beautiful place in a safe, fairly quiet part of town, but still central. It's an easy walk to Colfax to catch a bus or cab anywhere. I will certainly stay here again on my next visit to Denver.
Cynthia's home is wonderful, and I would definitely stay here again, if I was in town for a visit.
Cynthia was warm and welcoming. She met us when we arrived at noon and allowed us to check in a few hours later.
The neighborhood was OK and very close to the park and to my niece whose wedding brought many cousins together from all over. This was our first time at an air bnb so we had nothing to compare it with, except a bnb. The room was clean and large enough for the two of us. It had its own bath. The only issue for us was that there was no door or true separation from the bedroom. We didn't realize this ahead of time from any of the reviews. So light from the bathroom or the noise of running water might disturb someone going to bed before their partner. There was a screen between the sleeping area and the closet and desk, but it was inadequate. The faucet on the bathroom sink was not long enough so there was barely enough room to rinse a toothbrush or wash your hands without hitting the back of the sink. Water leaked from the handles as well. My husband had an issue with the toilet and tried to fix it without success. He mentioned to Cynthia what he thought the problem was. She knew about the issues and planned to fix them.
In a regular bnb the host usually establishes a time for breakfast. So the set up at Cynthia's was new to me. You just take what you want when you want it. That is fine, but Cynthia might have been more clear in indicating to us where everything was for the bnb guests. She generously got us cereal and decaf coffee when she learned I preferred it to regular coffee. The problem was that the second day, I couldn't find the coffee. She had left it in a cupboard not near the other coffee which my husband later suspected was for the guests, but we didn't know that. So I just went out to a café for coffee. I learned the next day that another guest had done the same thing since he didn't seem to know he could just make his own coffee. That morning, after he returned from the café, I invited him to share the coffee I had made.
Street parking can be challenging, so Cynthia generously found us a place on her driveway the night of the wedding. Guests should be prepared to drive around awhile if they get back late. There were no spots to be had at 10pm that night, so we were grateful we didn't have to look for one then.
Cynthia loves art and speaking French and German, so if you share those interests, it would be great.
We spent five nights at Cynthia's and felt right at home. Our room at the front of the house was light and airy (though with some noise from the street since we slept with the windows open). The bed was comfortable, and there was always plenty of hot water for the shower. Other guests were quiet and polite. We were welcome to cook ourselves breakfast if we wanted, but we stuck to making toast and tea and getting out the door. We sat in the living room and visited with Cynthia a couple evenings, and didn't see her at all other days, depending on our schedules.
Neither the house nor the neighborhood was ever elegant, and both show signs of their long, hard-working lives, but the house is a homey and comfortable Craftsman Style brick bungalow, clean and cluttered in the way most real homes are. The neighborhood seems safe and pleasant, and is certainly pedestrian friendly and a bit quirky, with a population mostly a lot younger than we are. Parking is on the street, and sometimes the nearest spot was up the block a ways, but we often were able to walk to our destination and not move the car at all.
