Awesome location really close to everything. Enjoyed my stay and Lauren was really accommodating. Thanks.
My aunt and I came to stay at Lauren's place for three nights in Seattle. The location couldn't be beat and the apartment had everything we needed! Lauren was very responsive and set up the queen size air mattress for me prior to our arrival. It was very comfy to sleep on. It's a lovely character building and the apartment has a clawfoot bathtub and big bay windows. There were a couple of environmental factors that can't be helped - the apartment faces the I-5 so there is traffic all the time, and there are streetlamps right outside so it's bright at night (I always sleep with an eye maks and earplugs and I slept right through every night) - but these wouldn't prevent me from staying there again. Also, it could be a bit chilly (older building, one-pane windows) but there was a space heater there to address this. The towels were fluffy, kitchen well equiped and because of the extensive cable TV network we got to watch the last Downton Abbey on Sunday night! Walking distance to everything downtown - Pioneer Sq., Pike Place Market, shopping district, Seattle Art Museum, etc. I'll be sure to stay there again in the future!
Lauren's apartment was great. Super clean and had everything I needed for an amazing stay in Seattle. It was in the perfect location to get downtown for work and also close enough to get to capital hill for bars and great restaurants. I saw everything I wanted and Lauren's place made it easy.
I was in town for a conference and had a great stay at Lauren's pad which was conveniently a few blocks from the convention center. She was responsive to requests and even left a few elysian brews in the fridge for us *delicious*. I was there during an unusually cold week so it did get a tad bit chilly for a southerner like me. But, Lauren dropped off an extra space heater which definitely kept it warm in her apt.
PROS: For the price, this apartment was amazing! The hotel next door had rooms for $300 a night. It's about a 15-20 minute walk to the Pike market and a 15-20 minute walk to the Capitol Hill are. The fact that the hotel next door constantly had taxis out front was also a plus. Wi-fi, cable TV and a full kitchen for this price definitely can't be beat. Lauren was nice and down to earth. The apartment was nice and well furnished.
CONS: Not sure if the apartment was fully cleaned before we started our stay here. Also, it took a little long to get our towels, we got there in the morning but didn't get towels until 10:30 at night. That said, we are aware that this isn't a hotel and that Lauren is probably a busy person. This was our first time using air-bnb so I'm not sure if this is the norm. Also, the radiator leaks, which wasn't too big a deal for us, just an unexpected small pile of water in the morning.
OTHER NOTES: The freeway noise. It didn't bother us at all, but I can see why it would bother other people. It never woke us up in the middle of the night or anything, but if you're a light sleeper it might. We usually like to have some white noise while sleeping so it was perfect. Also, the cable got a little spotty sometimes, but honestly we weren't there to watch TV.
CONCLUSION: We had a great time and this was a great place and we would definitely stay here again. I would definitely recommend this place.
Lauren was a GREAT host! She met us at the building and gave us a tour, we chatted about hosting and she gave us some food ideas. The apartment was close to the Public Market, shopping, and waterfront areas which we enjoyed very much. We had a wonderful time during our first trip to Seattle and it was wonderful to expand our airbnb family! I would recommend this place and definitely stay here again! Thanks, Lauren!
Lauren is a wonderful host and this apartment is perfect for a business trip or a visit for fun.
As previous guests have already mentioned, Lauren's place is in a good central location, perfect for getting about to key tourist spots in Seattle. The apt itself was very comfortable, although there were some minor issues regarding accommodations, (i.e. shower was blocked up and would not drain, and there was no toilet paper)
I would have rated it five stars if not for these issues, as everything else was perfect! Overall pleasant stay, and I would recommend this place to any first time Seattle goers.
Great location to downtown. Lauren was more than accommodating. Unfortunately we were late getting flying in and Lauren went above and beyond staying up and helping as getting settled in. Look forward to coming back to Seattle again soon. Amazing host.
Lauren was fantastic! The apartment was beautiful and in a great location. Walking distance to many major attractions in Seattle. The space itself was cozy and clean and we had no problems at all. Lauren gave us great recommendations of places to eat and go. Would definitely recommend a stay with Lauren and will do it again on my next trip to Seattle!
