My boyfriend and I stayed here on our visit to Portland. The Alberta Arts Attic was beautiful, cozy and comfortable! Melinda was a great host, she let us do our own thing but was there with a friendly smile if we had any questions. It's definitely an attic and therefore there is a ladder going up and down, but as long as you're careful it's no problem at all. We loved every minute of our stay! If you like yoga or meditation this is definitely the place for you :)
This is a lovely space. It's original, it's creative, it's cozy. The host was respectful and the space was quiet.
Melinda's Alberta Arts Attic is a beautiful and cozy spot. We loved the detail and care that were so clearly put into designing the space. Rob is a gracious and friendly host, and we felt immediately at home. We would hope to stay here again next time we travel to Portland. Highly recommended for students of yoga or anyone who appreciates the art and architecture of India!
My stay here was lovely. I had privacy, a comfortable bed, and a intentional beautiful and unique space. Bob was over the top helpful and kind. I rented the bike which became a dear friend. The ladder is a little tricky but unique. Only negative was it was chilly upstairs and no shower up there, just a bath (which was awesome). Bob showed me the space heater though so once I was snuggled into bed with it turned up I was fine. Also the weather was unusually cold this week.
Melinda was out of town, so Rob welcomed me instead, and very nicely so. This is a wonderful place in a great location. The loft is super nicely appointed, very comfortable and cozy, just as described. It is great for one person, (for two it might a little cozy), and yes there are steep ladders leading up to the loft, but if you're ok with that then this is a relaxing, quiet, beautiful place. It is nice to have a private bathroom with a nice tub. It is pristinely clean. The location near Alberta Ave is great. All around I would fully recommend this place!
The space was beautiful, just like the photos. Very private, clean and comfortable. Although I didn't meet Melinda, her counterpart Rob was a very helpful and welcoming host. The location is fantastic. Very easy to get to from downtown and Alberta St has some wonderful shops, restaurants and bars. Thanks for such a great stay!
It was a great experience. This magical and peaceful place was a wonderful time. Melinda wasn't there. Instead of her Robert was our host. He was friendly and gracious. Alberta street with all the restaurants, bars and shops it has to offer, is just a moment's walk away. If you're looking for a cozy private place just a few steps from some of the best that Portland has to offer I recommend this attic!
Funky, very comfortable room in the attic in the perfect area to explore unique areas of Portland. Lovely, gracious host who made us feel at home away from home. I would recommend this place to anybody!
I loved my stay at the Alberta Arts attic. The room is cozy,private, and fastidiously clean. There is a fabulous deep bathtub. And the bed is in a dormer that feels like a crib. I slept like a baby and I was very comfortable. Rob welcomed me with herbal tea and help getting my suitcase (I always pack too much) up the ladder to the room. There IS a ladder and you have to be prepared to go up it and down it. But I loved the Portlandia feel of the house and the neighborhood. I would stay here again.
The Arts Attic was exactly what I needed for the weekend--it was peaceful and clean and full of beautiful trinkets from around the world. The space was exactly as depicted, and the bathtub was heavenly. Bob, the caretaker, was warm and friendly.
Melinda and her guest, Ed, were great guests and are already invited back for a return stay. They were here for 2 weeks, during which time we were able to get to know each other a bit. Their warm, friendly personalities make them easy to get along with; I am looking forward to seeing them again.
They took good care of my flat and were easy to communicate with prior to and after booking. I give them my whole-hearted recommendation.
