Great location, 98% walk score, next to the Convention Center, includes snacks, WiFi, free street parking, washer/dryer. Read the reviews and you'll know I do everything I can to exceed guests' expectations. Rates from $99 to $219 -- like hotels, depending on season or special events.

The space

Greetings from Seattle. Thanks for considering my place. I've worked to make this the best Airbnb deal in downtown Seattle -- no deposit required, no "check-out checklist" to clean, change linens or do laundry before leaving -- you just leave when you're ready and Nadia, the world's best housekeeper, will take care of everything. The calendar is always up to date, so if you're Airbnb-verified, you can book immediately with Instant Booking. Otherwise, drop me a note and let me know a little about yourself and why you're coming to Seattle.

Here's more...

This is a private bedroom and private bathroom in a condo, just off Pike Street. An ideal hotel alternative: the best in comfort, price, and location -- a half block east of the Central Business District that includes the Convention Center, a 7-minute walk from the Westlake Light Rail link to/from the airport, a block south of the Pike Pine Corridor which encompasses the Retail Shopping Core, and a block west of Capitol Hill, Seattle's most prominent area for nightlife and entertainment. This location has a walk score of 98 out of a possible 100, and a transit score of 100, meaning it's easy to get anywhere from here using Seattle's famous and inexpensive public transportation.

You'll have a totally private accommodation -- chances are you won't meet the hostess unless you'd like to because the guest quarters are separate from the main condo.

As it gets closer to your arrival, you'll get an email explaining where to pick up the keys, along with a lot of other information about getting to downtown from the airport or train or BoltBus and lots of recommendations for things to do.

When you see the location on a map it will look like the building is separated from the rest of downtown by a freeway, but the freeway runs under the city here, so it won't block your walking, and as for noise, these accommodations are on the quieter side of the building with double pane windows.

A parking permit for free street parking is provided for guests who do drive. Parking is on a first-come, first-serve basis, so if you plan to use your car a lot during your stay, you might want to choose another accommodation or pay for parking in the many lots in the vicinity.

You won't need a car -- first, you'll be downtown within walking distance to shopping, theaters, museums, Pike Place Market, two great shopping malls, many restaurants, cafes, and more. If you want to venture out a little, Seattle is known for its low-cost public transportation that's highly accessible from where you'll be staying, and UBER or cabs are easy to reserve (or hail, even), plus their rates are reasonable, especially Uber and Lyft.

Accommodations include a wonderfully comfortable queen-size bed made up with cotton linens and hypoallergenic bedding. Spa robes, too. Once you book, there are no other costs to you, unless you want maid service during your stay. Plenty of extra bed and bath linens always available.

The accommodations include free high-speed internet access (WiFi), Cable+TV/DVD/CD, and your own little kitchen area with microwave, toaster, drip and presse coffee makers, a mini bar refrigerator/freezer -- perfect for breakfasts and light meals, and washer/dryer on the premises.

Nightly rates start at $99. I price the way hotels do, highest during high summer season and special events, low in the off season. Rates can go as high as $219 during special events, like Comicon and Pax, which is about a third to a quarter what you'd pay at a hotel for similar accommodations.

The condominium is a secure environment with an on-site building manager, front desk concierge, and proud to be LGBT friendly. There are two rooftop decks with outstanding city views. This downtown oasis has been a downtown favorite since 1999.

Breakfast: Your mini-bar will be stocked with complimentary breakfast fare including muffins or crumpets, Greek yogurt, cereal, milk, juice, fresh fruit, regular and decaf coffees, lots of teas, butter, jam, and bottled water. Let me know in advance if you'd like us to make a substitution (no extra charge). Plus, we're happy to get special items and have them here for your arrival -- like champagne or a favorite cheese, at cost (no service charge).

This is a comfortable, private get-a-way, a couple short blocks from the Convention Center, a half block from Hilton Suites, right up the street from the Sheraton, and four short blocks to Pacific Place Mall. The location is amazing.

The calendar is always up-to-date, so you can rely on the dates. I hope you book with me.

Siena, your hostess, and Nadia, the great

Guest access

In the email I send you before your arrival, it'll tell you how to gain access to the building and apartment. It's easy and there are no restrictions on the time of day or night you arrive, come and go, or check out.

On a map it looks like the condo is next to a freeway, but it runs under the city, so it's easy to walk anywhere downtown.

Other things to note

Free Zone 21 Parking. There are 60 blocks in a 10 x 7-block radius of the building for free Zone 21 parking. If you can't find parking on the street right in front of the building when you arrive, you might want to take your luggage up to the condo before looking for a space. The parking permit will be on the desk in your room, along with a map showing all Zone 21 parking spaces. Once parked, you can stay there for 72 hours before you need to move your car to another Zone 21 space.
Parking is on a first-come, first-served basis, but since I moved here in 1998, I've usually been able to find a space within a couple blocks of the building, but on certain times, like Saturday nights and Sundays, I've had to venture further out in the neighborhood. With a little (sometimes a lot) of patience, I've never had to resort to parking in a pay lot.
If you have physical challenges, let me know ahead of your arrival and I'll secure a parking space on the street in front of the building or at least within one or two blocks, using my car to hold a space for you and then we can swap places with your car when you arrive.
If you plan to be using your car a lot and going in and out more than, say, once a day -- sorry, but it'd be more convenient to pay the extra money to book a place that includes reserved parking in the building.

Dear Prospective Guest,

There aren’t really many house rules. Basically, come in and make yourself at home. There’s no such thing as a check-in time that’s too late, so no worries there. Let me know if you'd like an earlier check-in time than 3pm or later check-out time than noon. It can usually be arranged, depending on other bookings. Worst case scenario, we can store your luggage.

All the food and drinks in your private little food alcove are complimentary, so help yourself to what's been called The World’s First Free Mini Bar.

The building is concrete, which means it’s pretty soundproof, so you don’t need to be shy about the volume of music or TV – just keep it moderate after 10pm.

Hold onto the keys and, if you drive, return the parking permit when you check out. The lobby key fob has a $50 replacement cost imposed by the homeowners association that I must pass on to you, should you lose it. With that in mind, no one has ever lost one in 16 years, so I’m pretty confident it won’t be an issue for future guests (my cell # is on the key chain). The parking permit, on the other hand, is $200 should you lose it, because they’re virtually priceless and irreplaceable until new permits are issued by the city every two years. It’s only been lost twice -- once by my nephew and once by a woman visiting a few years ago -- when they returned their rental cars, the agency said they never found the permit. I've since written a reminder on the bottom of the welcome letter, so when guests refer back to the letter to see where to leave the keys upon check-out, they'll also be reminded to return the parking permit. No problems since then.

After you book and well before your arrival date, you’ll receive an email from me explaining how to get to the building, where to pick up the keys, and all sorts of good information about things to do in and around this wonderful city. When you arrive, there will be tourist brochures and a welcome letter on the desk with more information, like the WiFi access code, how to get to the laundry room, rooftop decks, and restaurant recommendations.

I want you to thoroughly enjoy your time in Seattle. I'll do everything I can to make that happen, so will Nadia, the best housekeeper in the world. It’s hoped you’ll book with me. I'm confident you’ll enjoy the accommodations. I'll do everything I can to make your stay wonderful.

This place is in a great location and we were able to walk to everything and we wanted to do. Check in and check out was super convenient even though we were arriving before check in and leaving before check out. The place is the perfect size for 1-2 people. Clean and comfortable! Hostess was great in checking in that we had everything we need. We will definitely be checking for this listing next time we visit!

Siena's place was cozy, close to a lot of great areas/attractions, and full of thoughtful touches (chocolate and flowers left on the desk when we arrived-so sweet!) Siena was super understanding when I wasn't able to respond to her messages. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to stay in Seattle!

We stayed at Siena's place for 3 nights, and it was our home base for our trip to Seattle. Siena provided everything we needed...and then some! There were great things to eat and drink, and that morning cup of coffee was terrific. The bed was super comfortable, and the space was super clean and well arranged, and there was added storage outside. The bath was just fine. This particular BNB provided excellent accessibility to everything we wanted to see and do in Seattle, and we will be happy to go back there. When you go - take Siena's advice about where to eat in the neighborhood. (I would add Stateside, and Siena said she would check it out!)

Siena's Airbnb accommodation is at a great location, right at the heart of downtown Seattle. Pricing is very fair and the accommodation is pretty good. I say that the pricing is fair because hotels in downtown Seattle, although the location is great, can be exorbitantly expensive. Seattle is a very walk-able city, so from this Airbnb location, you won't have any trouble walking to most of the nice restaurants, bars, and cafes within the downtown area. If walking isn't your thing, you could always Uber/Lyft, but I think walking gives you the best views of Seattle downtown, to get a sense and feel of how the town is like. Oh, and Pike Place Market is about 10-15 minute walk, which is quite nice. Siena (the host) is very responsive to any questions you might have and also gives you great tips for where to go/eat, if you need that advice. The fridge is decently stocked with beer, wine, water, and juice, which is an added plus as well, not a bad thing to come back to after a whole day of walking/touring throughout Seattle and the surrounding areas.

As all reviews, it is based on subjective perspective and one's own history experience. My reviews are meant to be helpful for both the public and the host. Sienna was extremely hospitable and communication with her was easy and efficient. She goes out of her way to accommodate personal treats for her guests. Mattress was very comfortable which was a big plus since I have back problems. Great location being blocks away from Pike Place and other interests. The room was quaint and every attempt was made to make the room efficient. Had a little kitchenette without a sink or stove but had refrigerator. Extra closet for putting away luggage and shower bathroom. I think however that it would be less disappointing if the photo of the room was not stretched and realistically represented. The room was smaller than anticipated because of the picture. The building apt condo was built in 1947 so it is an older building but in good shape and appears to be well maintained. I do recommend that the host put a fire alarm in the room. There are two alarms in the hallway of the condo unit and many in the common areas throughout the building but there is no fire alarm in the room you sleep in. Since it is an older building with older electrical wiring, I think it would make one feel more safe. Would I stay again? Perhaps, but only if the fire alarm was installed in the sleeping room.

I moved to Seattle in 1990 and love it here. Beautiful city, wonderful people.
I've been hosting since 1999 and have met terrific people from all over the world. It's gratifying to be able to provide an affordable, comfortable hotel alternative right in the heart of the City.
I'm also a writer and nutritional therapist. I love my work.
