Alexandra's Uptown King Bed Room

Bed & Breakfast - Private room · E 19th Ave, Denver, CO 80203, United States

The Space

Thank you for visiting my King Bed Room Site!

This is a fantastic location very close to Downtown Denver, which is a quick and easy 10 to 15 minute walk away. My home is close enough to go quickly wherever you want Downtown, but it is remarkably quiet and very restful. I am located in the upscale "Uptown" neighborhood, just east of downtown, in a working-class Victorian home (not elegant, but roomy, with character, lots of light and high ceilings). The common rooms (living room, dining room and kitchen) are available to guests for meeting space, or for just hanging out. In the summer, a large evaporative cooler and ceiling fans help keep the whole house cool. The small, fenced garden in back is a work in progress, with a small patio under the grape arbor, and the front porch is ideal for watching the world go by.

The house itself can accommodate up to 10 guests. I have several kinds of accommodations: queen bed in private room, double bed in private room, king bed for up to 3 people (best with small child or children) in private room, and large double sofa bed in living room for families or groups traveling together and who will book the queen bed room as well. There are other sleeping possibilities as well. Family/group rates are negotiable. The two bathrooms are shared. Two-night minimum stay preferred.

This particular room, the King Bed Room, is the largest and most comfortable room in my home. The mattress, topped with memory foam, is great! The bed is large enough to accommodate two to three adults, or two adults and a child. Although a bit cramped, it is also possible to bring in a trundle bed for another adult or child. The whole room is lovely, quiet, airy, with a spacious feel. The king room comes with two night tables, a chest of drawers, an oak roll-top desk, bookshelves, a table for luggage, a closet, a couple of chairs, with mostly South and Central American themes. This room is on the second floor of my home. The King Bed Room has direct access to the upstairs bathroom and laundry complex, which is shared with me, though we each have our own, separate access. The room is lockable.

I provide all bed linens and covers, pillows, towel sets, hair dryer, tissues, shampoo and conditioner, body wash and soap.

All taxes (totalling 14.75%) are included in the cost of each room, as are breakfasts. I charge a cleaning fee of $10 per room because of the need to sanitize everything a guest might touch or use, and to clean thoroughly before and after each guest's visit.

Some amenities in my home are Wireless Internet/WiFi, basic cable TV, baby grand piano, fully equipped kitchen and dining room, with Wedgewood china for dining, and all the fixings for a great breakfast, as you like it.

Very nearby are 4 grocery stores, from the basic to the gourmet; a number of liquor and fine wine stores; multiple coffee shops and some Internet cafes; Denver's many beautiful parks, and numbers of great and some renowned restaurants and eateries for breakfast, brunch, lunch, tea, dinner, and dessert. Churches, some beautiful and historical, abound, and many offer some of the most beautiful music and the most interesting services and dialogues around. Entertainment venues too are close by, from Brew Pub Tours to the Denver Performing Arts Complex, movie theaters and world-renowned book stores, excellent museums of all kinds and sizes, including the brand new Clyfford Still Museum, and our wonderful Denver Museum of Nature and Science and The Children's Museum. The gold-domed Colorado State Capitol, the Denver Public Library, the Denver Botanic Gardens,the Downtown Aquarium,and the ever-expanding Denver Zoo are easily reached. Most of these great amenities are within 2 to 3 miles of my home and can be easily accessed by foot or by public transportation (the RTD). The sheer number of great hang-outs of every kind is really astonishing. Denver is truly a Great City!

It is an easy 15-minute walk to downtown or less than 5 minutes to transportation throughout the city. My home is in a perfect location for a wide variety of Denver convention, dining, shopping, athletic, cultural, and entertainment experiences, for individuals and for families. You can avoid the high prices of Downtown, while enjoying all of its offerings just a few minutes away.

There is very easy access to major highways through Colorado. Come for the brilliance of the Colorado blue sky and sunshine and all the amenities that Uptown and Downtown Denver have to offer!

Supervised children are very welcome. Pets and smoking are not welcome.

  • Alexandra was so sweet. Fantastic stay.

    March 2014
  • I had a great stay. Alexandra is so warm and caring. Her home was comfortable and in a great spot. It got a little cold for me when I was there and she turned the heat up and had a space heater. Breakfast was good as well.

  • I staid with three to four colleagues at Alexandra's home and we all had a marvelous stay. She was a delicious and very accomodating guest who showed us around downtown and even took time to accompany me to the music store to buy music sheets. I look forward going to Denver again to enjoy her company! :)

  • Un grand merci à Alexandra pour ce séjour sans problème à Denver.
    Alexandra est une hôtesse rare, sympathique et attachante. Pour le petit déjeuner, une grande variété de produits de qualité sont à disposition. En espérant avoir l'occasion de retourner à Denver..

  • Alexandra is a kind and gracious hostess, and a mix-up over the date of my arrival quickly rectified with a findable key so I could let myself in. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The bathroom next to this bedroom has two doors, so the privacy element might be a concern to someone more fussy, but I didn't get disturbed. I was using the room as a place to crash during a business conference with long working hours, and it worked out well, since it's five minutes' cab ride and 15 minutes' walk from the Convention Center. But, be warned, Denver cabs are hard to find, even by phone! I got stranded in this non-business area a couple of times.

  • Alexandra was very caring and concerned for our stay. Her home is centrally located and charming-- very near some great spots and the bike share program. She provided a lot of information prior to and during our stay.

    October 2013
  • We enjoyed out stay at Alexandra's very much. She was very gracious in making sure we had everything we needed and gave us suggestions for restaurants and things to do. Her home is very convenient to downtown and was a great home away from home.

  • Alexandra is an amazing hostess, warm and kind. She was flexible with accommodating the five of us (including three children). Alexandra went the extra mile to help us in many ways upon our arrival to Denver. She graciously offered to drive us around the neighbourhood to visit our son's school and the new place we were due to move into. She also helped to babysit our twins one evening, which i am ever so grateful of; her grandchildren and sons are so very lucky to have her! 

    Her home is full of character, we love it - very cosy and homey indeed ! Not to mention, her back garden of various kinds of fruits and veg plants were a hidden gem - our kids had great times picking tomatoes and cucumbers, then watched her make some pickles. We had many fond memories at her bnb , she made our stay truly unique and one of a kind, better than any hotels. We highly recommend her bnb to any family visiting Denver. Our children miss her so much. And so do we! We are delighted to have met you, I hope we can stay in touch, wherever we may be.

  • Alexandra is a great host, the room was as described. We had a very nice stay at her house.

About
Denver native, former teacher, musician, chaplain. Spent 4 years in Bolivia and speak Spanish. I love my home and its location so close to everything. My neighborhood keeps growing upscale, but my home remains surprisingly quiet! My single family home is a true oasis in the city. Seven wonderful grandchildren and their parents make my life a blessing. I have really enjoyed welcoming and getting to know my guests from all over the world and the USA, and look forward to many more!
