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 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!
Great location. Great price. Comfortable bed. Thank you! I will use your listing again.
This location is great. You are going to be very close to downtown and to a lot of great pubs and hipster bars. On our final night we had drinks at the "Knee High Stocking Company", which is right across the street. One important note, free parking on Friday and Saturday night seemed impossible to find. If you are driving you can save a lot of time by just paying for parking a few blocks away from the apartment.
I would definitely stay here again the next time I am in Seattle.
The location is absolutely perfect. The bed was extremely comfortable and seems fairly new. Check-in and out was really easy. The only complaint was the couch- it looks filthy and kind of smells mildewy on one side- not a huge issue as it's ignorable but I wouldn't want to sleep on it as a pull out bed.
I'd definitely stay here again next trip (though possibly in a different unit).
No fluff and frills accommodation but in an ideal location. We did not rent a car and were able to walk to downtown in 10 mins and within touring the city, we either walked or took the bus. Nicole greeted us at the door and allowed us to drop off our luggage in the storage unit. She provided us with instructions for us to check in later the evening. The place was somewhat tight for 3 people but doable. If you're looking for a safe and ideal place to stay, I would suggest staying here for the price!
Like others, I had no one helping me check in or out (which is fine; until recently, I lived a couple miles away). Ridiculously awesome location, and it's even better for the price! Will definitely be back when I'm in town.
Nick's place was ideal for walking around downtown Seattle. There's a ton of restaurants in the area, and its easy walking to the waterfront and Pike Place. Be aware that if you have 3 people staying, the pullout couch/bed is not the most comfortable - it has a bar that kinda digs into your back. Also, the parking is quite difficult to find during some parts of the day (like mentioned in the details of the description) especially if there is a large event going on downtown.
We had tickets to attend a theater performance in the area, and this was a very convenient place to stay. Basic but comfortable, and close to both downtown and Capitol Hill neighborhoods.
Very professional. A credit to Airbnb. I definitely recommend staying at Nick's place. Location was great. Apartment was perfect. Parking was tricky but I always found one. Great restaurants in the area too. Thanks Nick
I never actually met the hosts as it was a single serve apartment and we arrived later then we had originally intended, but the key was waiting for us in a lockbox and the apartment was totally cozy for our evening sojourn. They provide all the basic amenities and the bed is rly comfortable. The apartment is very conveniently located. The price and location alone sell this airbnb for what you come home too. :) Thanks Nick for contributing to our awesome weekend in Seattle.
The space was clean and cozy; it was exactly as pictured. It was right on the edge of downtown and Capitol Hill, and it was relatively easy to walk everywhere or find public transit. Messaging with Nick and Nicole made the trip so much easier! They were able to accommodate my late arrival into town, and were willing to let me keep my luggage in the building after my flight was delayed 4 hours. Will definitely check this place out again if I am visiting Seattle! :)
