Built in the mid-century for the 1960 World's Fair, The Melrose Court Apartments provides an authentic Seattle experience at an affordable price!
This is private apartment. You will have the entire space to yourself and your guest(s).
There is a full kitchen, full bath, and laundry facilities available on-site (detergent provided). There is a comfortable queen size mattress fitted for two people. The apartment is probably better suited for only two people, but there is a couch in the living room should another person choose to stay. I do not charge for additional guests.
I provide towels and clean sheets.There is a kitchen stocked with dishes and pans for any guests that wish to cook during their stay. Basic cooking oils and condiments are available. A small selection of tea and coffee is also provided for guest use, free of charge.
There is also a television with a Roku box that has Netflix, Pandora and a variety of other streaming channels.
Check-in and check-out is done either in person or through a lock-box (instructions PM'd). There is someone that lives on the property to attend to all guest needs, so there will always be someone readily available for any questions or concerns you may have during your stay.
The apartment is located at the end of Seattle's vibrant Capitol Hill, which makes it at 5-10min walk to Broadway (Capitol Hill's main street) and a 5-10min walk to Downtown. We are located walking distance to the Convention Center and is an ideal place for anyone attending a conference.
Supermarkets, restaurants, gyms, yoga studios, coffee shops and lounges are all located nearby. Capitol Hill is known as one of the more interesting neighborhoods of Seattle and has plenty of character! You're sure to find something interesting just walking around the block.
We are located within walking distance to all major bus lines, including the Convention Center Tunnel Station, which takes you anywhere inside and outside of Seattle. Pike Place Market is about a 10min walk downtown and I have tour maps and traveler guides available to help you enjoy your visit!
Walk Score of 92
Transit Score of 100:
Parking is a bit tricky because I live in a very dense area of the city. There is free two-hour parking around the area that go between 7am-6pm (unrestricted after 6pm), and it can be easy or difficult depending on what day and time you arrive. Much of the parking can be found on Melrose, past Olive Way until Denny Street. I've also been told there is parking north of Thomas street. Parking enforcement does patrol the area so I would recommend moving the car every two hours during the restricted timeframe. Otherwise, there are pay parking sites nearby, that charge a daily rate of about $13. On Sundays, parking is free throughout Seattle.
NOTE ABOUT 3 GUEST STAYS
There are two sleeping areas in the apartment: 1 queen sized mattress, and a couch in the living room. I've been told in the past by other guests that it is a bit cramped for 3 people. Other guests found the space to be enough. The square footage is 440, so please take that into consideration if booking for 3 people. I do not charge for an extra guest.
There is no elevator in the building but this unit is located on the first floor. However, guests with disabilities or trouble climbing stairs should still take this into consideration.
There are not any pets inside the room, nor have there been any pets since the place opened, but some other tenants in the building do have cats. The animals are typically confined to their own units, but it is something to note.
This location is fitted for travelers who are a laid back and would like to experience what it is like to actually live in Seattle. If that sounds like you, please do not hesitate to book!
Prices reflect a 9.5% sales tax for WA state. In the event where a refund is issued, both AirBnB charges and 9.5% sales tax will NOT be included in the refund.
We have just hired professional cleaners to turn our units and are here to address the concerns we've heard from past guests. The cleaning fee goes entirely to the service to ensure guests have a clean room ready for them when they arrive. And always, please let us know how we're doing!
Melrose Court was convenient, quiet, and well equipped. The clean rooms were ample for 2, the bed was comfortable and great coffee was just around the corner. I plan on staying here the next time I come back to Portland!
For the location, it's hard to beat the price and convenience of this spot. Just a couple blocks from downtown with tons of great cafes and restaurants within easy walking distance. Nicole was quick to address my needs including arriving early. Any issues I had with the property are fairly minor.
Stay was great. Apartment was clean and close to the Capital Hill scene!
A perfectly pleasant apartment at the base of Capitol Hill in Seattle. Very convenient for access to the convention center and downtown Seattle and near a lot of great places to eat in the Capitol Hill area. The apartment is well-suited for two people and well stocked with the basic cooking essentials making it easier for people who don't want to eat out all the time. While I didn't actually meet Nick or Nicole (the onsite manager), they were very quick to respond over email and we were able to coordinate key pickups and dropoffs with no trouble. I'd certainly stay here again if I were to come back to Seattle!
Nicole was really friendly and welcoming. The location of the apartment is awesome; it's very close to downtown but close enough to Pike/Pine and Broadway for some good food and drinks. I recommend this place!
Just what my girlfriend and I needed, an affordable pad in a great part of the city. We had very few parking issues after switching rentals to a Fiat. Tricky keeping the apartment warm in the middle of winter, but we survived, otherwise we were lucky to find you. Thanks Nick/Nicole!
Nick was quick to get back to us when we had questions.
Great location. Easy check in and out. Modest accommodations but quite nice for the price.
Clean space, on the darker and older side, and the bed is very noisy but overall it was perfect for the price and you cannot beat the location.
Me and my gf booked Nick's place for a week months before our trip. The apartment looked nice, had good reviews, and wasn't too pricey.
When we arrived at the airport we took the light rail to Seattle and were allowed to check in early, which was great. Once in the apartment, our first thought was it looked better in the pictures. The apartment needed some cleaning. There was quite a bit of dust built up on most of the appliances and when we checked the bed there were a few hairs on the sheets, so we decided to wash them before sleeping on the bed. When we checked out we tried to leave it clean. We wiped many of the surfaces and even threw away a few things that were expired.
Setting that aside, the place was pretty comfortable and it had everything we needed. The location was probably the best thing about the apartment, close to downtown, Pikes Place Market, and Capital Hill. Nick also allowed us to check out late, another great thing because our flight was in the afternoon.
The apartment has lots of potential just needs a bit of work. I would recommend staying a few days but I would probably not recommend staying a week.
