Modern Studio at Historic Colt

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Huyshope Ave, Hartford, CT 06106, United States

Welcome to Hartford! We have traveled all over the world using AirBNB and are happy to welcome fellow travelers to our studio just outside of downtown Hartford.

About the apartment:

Our modern studio is on the top (6th) floor and has over 800 square feet of space with 13 foot ceilings. The studio has a modern galley kitchen which is open to the apartment and includes a coffee maker, espresso maker, and a juicer. The living room is large and comfortable with nine foot windows the length of the room, a number of stocked book shelves, a stereo, DVD player and an HD TV (no cable). The bedroom is set apart in a nook and includes a queen sized bed, and the bathroom is large and clean. There is also a workspace if you are here for business. And if you look really hard you might spot our cute, shy cat Suky sneaking around.

  • I absolutely loved staying at Amanda and Brians place. It looked just like the pictures and was very clean. They were so kind and welcoming we really appreciated how flexible they were about arrival and departure time, which was very helpful. I am allergic to cats but they made sure to clean up well and vaccum. My allergies still flared but it wasn't unbearable. We would love to stay again!

  • Amanda and Brian were excellent hosts. They were flexible with our arrival and departure times, considering flight delays. They were more than accommodating with directions and recommendations with regards to where to go, what to do, and where to eat. Brian recommended a few places that delivered and he was spot on. The space was gorgeous and inviting. Pictures do not do it justice. The view overlooking the Connecticut River is absolutely beautiful in the morning. The neighbors were especially friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Staying at Brian and Amanda's was great! Their apt is very cool, well equipped, and spacious. I did not have the pleasure of meeting Amanda but Brian was wonderful, helpful, friendly, and turned me on to Firebox where we went for a great brunch on Sunday.

  • Amanda and Brian were the perfect host on our recent trip to Hartford. We couldn't have asked for more as the space was warm, comfortable, spacious, and the view was breath taking. All of their neighbors were very friendly too. Communication was clear and they were very flexible with scheduling. I'd highly recommend their studio for your trip to Hartford. If only we had a chance to meet them. Until next time!

  • The place is gorgeous! Wonderful amount of light, great layout and meticulously clean. The pictures do not do the place the justice. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you Amanda & Brian :)

  • Our first time using airbnb was an unforgettable dream, thanks in no small part to Brian and Amanda. They walked us through the booking process, swiftly answered all questions with detail and were quite flexible when the weather attempted to sabotage our trip. As for the apartment, it was Fantastic! super clean and comfortable with friendly neighbors and a sweet sunrise over the connecticut river. We would not hesitate to stay again.

  • The apartment looks exactly like the pictures and the entire house is beautifully renovated with a little "Colt Cafe" next to the entrance. The neighborhood can be a little sketchy and grocery stores are hard to find. Apart from these minor drawbacks it was a great experience! Amanda and Brian were also very very helpful with everything.
