About this listing
Hello there! I look forward to hosting you in my home :)
Before making a booking, please look over the picture of the floor plan and read the information about the bathroom/shower in the section titled "The Space".
I live on the 30+ floor of one of the newest condo buildings in the heart of downtown Bellevue, and here's what's included in this reservation (please see the floor plan in the pictures for details).
-The bedroom used to be the den in my condo. I added a door for privacy and converted it to an extra bedroom. It is definitely small, and it is perfect if you are looking for something affordable/simple in the area.
-The bedroom is furnished with a queen bed, night stands, lamps, and in-ceiling lights
-The bathroom is private (not shared) and it is across the hall from the bedroom. Note: it is a half bathroom, which means it has a sink and a toilet (no shower). You can see this more clearly in the picture of the floor plan.
-A shower is available in the fitness center in my building (on a different floor), and it is professionally cleaned regularly. You are welcome to use this shower, or use the shower at your nearby workplace/gym (LA Fitness is right next door).
You'll have access to the shared elements of the condo and building amenities.

Interaction with Guests
A little about me:
-A geek at heart, I work at Microsoft and absolutely love it
-My interests are fashion, nutrition, meditation, and psychology
-A great host! I’m happy to chat or join in on adventures, and enjoy down time on my own as well
-Downtown Bellevue is incredibly upscale, posh, and elegant – the place to be if you appreciate the finer details in life
-This is the real heart of downtown Bellevue, staying north of 8th and south of 4th just doesn't compare. Plus, you'll get tired of waiting at the lights to actually get to downtown Bellevue! (those two streets have notoriously long lights)
-Bellevue Transit Center and several bus stops are just one block away
-The 560 bus or a taxi is the best way to get to my place from the airport
-Parking is not included, bu let me know if you are bringing a car and I can help arrange for parking at a nearby lot
Other Things to Note
I have another spare room in my condo that I also make available on airbnb. In my experience, when both rooms have guests, the guests have gotten along great! If you have a particular schedule or special requests, please let me know and I'm sure we can accommodate :)
I'm flexible with reasonable advance notice, just keep me informed of your plans. Noise is rarely a problem, I can sleep through fire alarms :)
A few requests, please:
-Put trash in the trash bin
-Wash used dishes, or rinse and place in dishwasher
-Keep hallways clear of obstructions
-Most importantly, have fun and enjoy yourself!
I recently stayed at Amin's fantastic apartment in downtown Bellevue for couple days. Everything was great. The place is absolutely beautiful very clean quiet .Great view from the 32 be floor.
Amin is a very gracious host, very friendly. He is extremely knowledgable of Bellevue and the surrounding area and can help you find whatever you need from nice restaurants to shopping etc.
Highly recommended to anyone!
Check in was quite easy, Amin was very helpful, friendly, and quite organized. I didn't spend much time in the apartment but the apartment is very nice. The shower situation is admittedly a little weird. It didn't end up being a big deal but it's good to be aware of. The shower isn't a private spa style shower with toiletries as I would have expected, it is a gym shower with a clear glass door in the middle of the locker room. If that's not your cup of tea, might want to go for Amin's premium listing (I would have but it was booked already).
Amin was an awesome host. The location was great, pretty much anything you could want is nearby. I'd definitely recommend this place.
Very professional process - everything was ready, clean, and easy to figure out how to get to the gym, etc. Amin was very responsive, and I had no problems at all! Loved the location as expected, right down the street from work and above LA Fitness. Amenity area was beautiful - great stay!
My second time staying with Amin and it's always such a pleasure. I had a good time chatting with him and his friend!
The building has a friendly and helpful receptionists, so the check-in was super easy - I came quite late, got my keys at the reception and went straight to bed :-).
The location was just perfect for my purpose, but even if you're not visiting a company next door, it is a great location with all important things in walking distance.
The flat has some amazing views and the room is pretty comfortable. Highly recommended!
