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 through a lock-box, instructions are privately messages 48-72 hours before check in. There is someone that lives on the property to attend to guest needs, so there will be someone available for 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 comfortable pull out sofa that is the equivalent to a full size mattress. 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 and this unit is located on the 3rd floor. Guests with disabilities or trouble climbing stairs should 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!
Nicole (who helps Nick manage the apartment) was very friendly and prompt to respond! We used the locked storage to hold our bags before checkin, and Nicole made it a very smooth process. Overall, the apartment was quaint, clean, and had good furnishings. Thanks!
Great neighborhood and location! Nicole provided lots of information about how to get to/from the apartment and everything we needed to have a comfortable stay. Thanks!
The entire experience was simple and easy. Let ourselves in with a lock box and checked out the same way. The place is clean and orderly. Everything is spelled out clearly. And it is in a great part of town!!! Many bars and restaurants within walking distance.
Nick's place was a perfect fit for our stay. Great location, 15 min walk from the space needle, 10 min from downtown and light rail station. We where in town to run the rock-n-roll marathon. We had a great time and a worry free stay.
My Gf & I had a great time! From the instructions on how to get to the apt to where to eat and places to see, they were the best of hosts! We will definitely rent this property again.
The place is located on the border of Capitol Hill and downtown. We caught a movie. Saw Bruce Lee's grave site, the space needle, glass garden. Pike's market. All the while we took public transit. Very efficient. Cheers to Nick & Nicole!
Great stay at Nicks place (304 Melrose Courts). Its not high end. Small and sparse. But it was clean. Bed was very comfortable. And the location and price were both great. You can walk straight down Pine street to the wharf and all its sites. And Capital Hill is very cool. Lots of great shops and bars, etc. Good communication throughout.
All in all a very positive experience.
The location of the apartment is very convenient，also it is pretty safe, I lived with my parents, so I slept on sofa bed in the living room. Actually the windows can't block noise and the blind windows can't stop the light from the corridor. So I suggest two people to live in this apartment will be better.
Nicole who manages the listing was very responsive and provided clear instructions on the check in process. There were no problems finding the place or getting access. The location is great! There are not many hotels in the area and I found it conveniently located. The sofa in the living room was not very comfortable to sit on for any length of time. The listing, as well as the book of guest information in the apartment, stated laundry soap could be found in the apartment and there was none. Since my stay was so short, I did not contact Nicole to ask about it but was counting on doing a load of laundry since I'd already been on the road a week before checking in here. There was quite a bit of street noise throughout the night, but it is Seattle. If you are a light sleeper, you probably already travel with earplugs. Also, there is no microwave here.
Overall, this apartment is a great deal for its price. The check-in/key pick-up was very easy and the check-in time was flexible. Parking on the other hand was a bit of a pain point; we got lucky one night and parked on the streets but opted for a paid lot on the other night. As other guests have mentioned, the location of the apartment is perfect. It is a reasonable walk to both downtown and the popular capitol hill areas (or a very short uber/lyft ride away). Lastly, the apartment itself was a bit smaller than expected, but we didn't mind as we were mostly out. I would definitely recommend this apartment!
Great location! Nicole was pretty good with correspondence and we had no troubles finding or accessing the apartment on arrival. It's pretty basic but pretty clean. We did notice a bit of mold in the corner of the bedroom ceiling but hopefully that will be addressed soon. The TV worked well with the digital box and the bed was super comfy.
