Melrose Court Apartment - 304

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Melrose Avenue, Seattle, WA 98122, United States

The Space

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.

Guest Access

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.

Interaction with Guests

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 Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

Other Things to Note

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!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • You get what you pay for. After a long day of travel, my friend and I were ready to clean up and sleep! Unfortunately, the restroom's light did not work when we arrived and we found the pullout couch to be pretty filthy. The springs under the pullout couch did not support the mattress, so we had to take the sofa cushion to provide additional support. Minimal accommodations, but there is a fully equipped kitchen, city maps, guidebooks, plus Shampoo and Body wash in the shower.

    We did not get to meet the host, but Nicole who was helping manage the apartment was very kind and helpful. She answered every question we had promptly and attempted to address any issues we had as quickly as she could. Thank you Nicole!

  • The apartment is in a great neighbourhood and I'd say a 15 minute walk to pike place, it was small but good enough for us, the only downside was that the only bathroom in the suite was in the bedroom so the person who stayed on the pull out couch had to come through the bedroom to use it.

  • This apartment is all about location. There are a ton of great coffee shops and bars literally around the corner, and downtown and the waterfront is also a short walk away. The unit smelled a bit like cigarette smoke and felt humid, but overall met our needs comfortably.

  • Nice place at a decent price. The hosts were very good at communicating and was available throughout the day. It was very easy to get in and get out of the place, given that I didn't have to schedule a meeting time with the host for check-in and check-out. Overall a good experience. The only thing that you should be prepared for is that the sofa bed isn't very comfortable. It works, I still fell asleep on it and what not. The normal bed was much better. The heaters worked, neighborhood was on the most part quiet.

  • Fantastic location!!!!
    Building is a bit old but unit was clean, very confortable bed and it has all the basics you need for short stay in Seattle.
    I book the place within hours of arriving and Nicole's response was quick, helpful and efficient. Thank you so much!!!! Will be back for sure.

  • The apartment was perfect for a place to sleep and get ready. I honestly spent very limited time in it, but it was quiet and had a great location with a short walk to basically everything. Nicole was very friendly and available to answer questions whenever I had them. I would definitely stay here again.

  • Melrose Court 304 worked perfectly for us. Check-in was straight-forward and convenient. Location was really great, right on the edge of Capitol Hill. The apartment wasn't fancy but that's not what I look for. It was clean, comfortable, and very quiet. I would highly recommend. Nick's friend Nicole was very helpful in the planning, booking, and arrival.

  • My family and I enjoyed our stay. The place was clean, convenient and quiet. The only negative I have is that parking is kind of tough, so you might have to circle around everytime you want to park. Other than that I would recommend this place to all who would like to be near the all the action on Capitol Hill and close to downtown.

  • 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.

As an avid traveler, I have always felt the people along the way have been just as important as the place I visited. I traveled alone in Latin America for about two years, and spent a good part of that time working in multiple hostels. I always enjoyed learning about my guests, providing good accommodations, and showing them the best parts of a city. Currently, I live in and manage a 36-unit apartment in the heart of Seattle, and I have completely furnished an apartment for the purpose of providing affordable housing for visitors. One day, I may open a hostel myself, so I consider this a bit of practice and would love to hear feedback from visitors. I'm pretty straight forward about my accommodations and I realize that this location is suited best depending on your travel plans and the type of things you are looking for during a vacation stay, so please be as detailed as you can in a request so I can best meet your needs. I hope I get the chance to show you the best parts of Seattle! ***UPDATE*** Currently I am out of town, but I have a good and trusted friend handling the bookings for me. Her name is Nicole and you can expect the same top-notch service as I have given in the past, plus I am always available by email and phone should you need to reach me directly.
