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.

Guest Access

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.

  • Great! Excellent location, very friendly innkeeper! 100% perfect!

  • 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.

    February 2014
  • Alexandra is a kind and gracious host. Her home is within walking distance to some great restaurants, bars, and the convention center downtown. I felt safe walking and parking in this uptown neighbor hood. The king bed room was clean and the bed was very comfortable.

    October 2012
  • Alexandra was generous enough to let all 10 of us stay at her place for the duration of the Great American Beer Festival! The King room was cozy and comfortable and Alexandra was a fantastic host, opening up her whole home to us. Staying with her made our stay in Denver easy, convenient, and way more enjoyable than staying at a hotel.

    October 2012
  • Wonderful host. She went above and beyond and picked me up the afternoon of my arrival. Excellent fresh and healthy breakfast, clean rooms, and home. Great communication before and during my trip. She's considered every need, accommodated dietary preferences and even had pitchers of water in the room to help with altitude sickness and the dry air in Denver. There are few public transportation right nearby, but there were rental bikes less than a block a way which was a really nice perk. Restaurant options in the neighborhood are diverse and tasty. I would definitely recommend staying with her!

  • Alexandra was such a wonderful host. She was thoughtful about all aspects of my stay. Before my arrival, she had asked about breakfast preferences, she made sure to let me know tips about airport shuttles and upon my arrival to her home, greeted me, once there she made sure to make my stay comfortable. She has a map for each guest, she has good system to make sure each person in the house has a comfortable place to stay. Her home is cozy and very near to all downtown activities. I stayed at her place during a national college admissions conference, it was nice to not be in a hotel. The guests I met at her house were from all over the world and it was great to talk about world topics, quite a treat. I would recommend Alexandra, she has been hosting since 2008 and her home is a pleasant place for anyone visiting Denver.

    October 2012
  • Alexandra was a great host. We were traveling with our 7 month old son and she had everything we needed and more! She let us borrow a stroller to walk to all the yummy close by restaurants. She even had some baby food! When we left early in the morning she packed our breakfast snacks to go! We loved staying in her home and Hudson already misses her friendly hellos!

    October 2012
  • Alexandria was a great host. Very welcoming and knowledgeable. It was a great location and the bed was huge and comfortable. I recommend staying here!

    September 2012
  • Great place to stay. We spent an extra night beyond what we had planned and Alexandra made it easy. Highly recommended.

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!
