About this listing
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.
Living room, dining room, kitchen, refrigerator (with advance planning), laundry room ($3.00 US for wash and dry), patio and porch areas in season.
Interaction with Guests
I generally have a great deal of interaction with my guests. I enjoy getting to know them and am available during the days and evenings. If the need arises, I am also here at night. If a guest prefers no or less interaction, that is fine.
No smoking in the house or outside on my property. If a guest is a habitual and heavy smoker, please do not book with me, as the smell hangs around in the places where the guest has been.
No pets - too many people are highly allergic, including your host. No exceptions.
Guests are responsible for cleaning up after themselves in the kitchen and dining room, putting dishes in the dishwasher, and generally helping to maintain a level of cleanliness in my home. POTS AND PANS DO NOT GO IN THE DISHWASHER, but must be washed by hand.
Because of the shared nature of the bathrooms, if a guest leaves splashes or little brown things on or in the toilet rim, seat and/or bowl, there is a toilet brush for the bowl and the inner rim, and there are disinfectant wipes for the seat (both sides) and the rim. The next guest to use the bathroom will be glad not to have to see, smell, or come in contact with the remains of another guest.
Please take off your shoes just inside the front door. I have a whole collection of frequently washed slippers for men, women, and even children, and I invite you to use them.
Alexandra is a wonderful hostess! Having two toddlers, you never know how a host will respond. She was very gracious, and didn't mind the toddlers. She is also great at communicating, as well as informative upon check-in. I really appreciate how she handles everything to make sure you are comfortable and your needs are taken care of.
She has an older home, but she makes it very comfortable, and homey.
It was definitely a home away from home for my young family. We would definitely stay with her again!
We stayed with Alexandra two nights in her king size bedroom. We had a shared bathroom. Our host was very informative and friendly, giving us ideas of places to see and eat at in downtown Denver. She provided a variety of items for breakfast. We loved the close proximity to downtown, yet it was quiet enough at night. The bathroom is shared with the host, so she was very careful with our timeframe. We loved Denver.
Wonderful! Alexandra is a great host, very helpful with restaurant tips and directions. She provides a nice breakfast and her home is clean and in a great location to get to the downtown. I would definitely stay here again!
Alexandra was a lovely and fantastic host who could provide us with all the important know-abouts of Denver and made us feel like being at home. Her place is conveniently located near delicious restaurants and the rent-a-bike station that makes getting around in the city really easy.
I would stay at Alexandra's B&B again without giving it another thought.
Our stay at Alexandra's was quite pleasant. She is extremely detail oriented, thorough, and runs a tight ship around her house, while still maintaing a level of warmth and hospitality. She made communication very easy and was sure to accommodate to all our needs. Also, the king bed was extremely comfortable and the room nice and cozy. It was a great nights sleep! It shares a bathroom with the host but wasn't problematic at all. If while you're traveling you would enjoy a motherly figure to guide you through your stay within the house and out and about in Denver, then Alexandra's home is the place for you.
Alexandra was a great host! She was very warm and welcoming and kept her home extremely clean. I loved the cozy and relaxed bed and breakfast feel to the place.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Alexandra was very friendly and thorough in orienting us to her place. Everything was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the food available for breakfast was top notch. The house is old and charming with a wonderful homey feel unlike the sterile sameness of hotel rooms. The location had easy access to downtown without being right in the noisy hustle bustle and was very close to many wonderful restaurants. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!

About the Host, Alexandra
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!
