Lauren was great, friendly and communicative! Myself and my friends had a great time at the apartment; it's cozy and was in the perfect location for us. I'd recommend it!
I felt welcome from the moment I landed in the city. Lauren met me at the door and I felt like an old friend that had come to visit. She was welcoming and warm and made sure that I was settled in and knew where everything was and rule of the building. I couldn't have asked for a better host.
Thank you Lauren for a nice extended stay at the apartment. The location was ideal for us! :)
Lauren's space was really nicely furnished and very comfortable. I loved the old building and the decor; I felt at home immediately. She was very welcoming and friendly and I enjoyed chatting with her for a bit before heading out to dinner with a friend. There were plenty of amenities available like towels and dishes. I slept very well in the comfy bed and was plenty warm even though it was chilly outside that night. There was wi-fi available but I did not use it.
Two things to keep in mind about this space if you are thinking about staying here. One is the bedroom window looks out directly on I-5, which has constant traffic all night. The building is very thick due to how old it is and the windows are newer, double-glazed ones, both of which cut the noise dramatically but it's still pretty noticeable. It's good to keep this in mind if you are a light sleeper. The other is that parking can be really challenging to find, and it's all paid, though between 8PM and 8AM street parking is free if you can find it. There are a couple of lots nearby. I was able to find a spot right on the street and paid that night for the first two hours of the next morning (a cool feature of the meters there), so I did not have to rush out at 8AM to make sure I didn't get a ticket.
Neither of these is a deal-breaker by any means; just good things to know ahead of time so you can plan. I definitely recommend this space if you are looking for a spot in this area. It's super-close to First Hill, which is a really cool area to walk around in.
Lauren was lovely. She met me outside the building and showed me to the apartment, which was nice and clean as expected from the pictures. The apartment is close to downtown, but also right next to the freeway as described in previous reviews. I thought what people described as white noise would be soothing to me (i usually sleep better with white noise), but was utterly wrong. It was not just the freeway noise that never calmed, but the endless truck deliveries across the road and backing up beeping that kept me awake at night. Same goes for the several car alarms that went off at 3am in the morning for about 10 minutes. None of this is the host's fault, and I acknowledge it might have been an exceptionally noisy night for the neighborhood and the location was fairly described, I guess I am just more bothered by this then others. If you book here, I hope you are a deep sleeper. As it is I was pretty much awake all night.
We visited Seattle for 6 days to experience the city. Lauren's apartment is in a perfect location for downtown. Before we arrived Lauren offered to give us directions to her home. She was a wonderful host and promptly answered any and all questions we had. She was also very helpful with restaurant suggestions. Lauren's apartment was more than I imagined. It had a feeling of home; it was a different experience than a hotel which we enjoyed.
My stay was short but sweet. Lauren was very nice and welcoming. She accommodated my early arrival, which was a relief after many days on the road. The apartment was well-located for me as I was coming and going via train. The bed was comfortable, and I slept like a stone.
Lauren was the best and the most helpful host. She couldn't do more to help us.
Lauren was very friendly and accommodating! She is very connected and easy to communicate / meet with. When an unforeseen issue came up with the room she went out of her way to immediately make it right. The room itself is great. The kitchen was very nice and the location could not be better for my purposes. There was a bit of road noise - not a problem for me but bring earplugs if you are very sensitive.
The apartment was in a great location, easy walking distance to downtown, the ballparks, Capitol Hill, the waterfront, etc. Lauren was a great host, was there to greet me on arrival, explained all aspects of the unit, and was friendly and helpful. The unit has lots of character, big windows, and high ceilings. Very comfy. Would stay again, for sure!
Guest was great. Really nice, polite person. Enjoyed having her stay and looking forward to future stays.
Laura was easy to communicate with a very complimentry of our place. She was a good guest and would recommend her to anyone.
Lauren was a great guest! Her outlook on life is fun and friendly and independent, and I'd love to visit her place as it looks fabulous!
I hardly knew she was here and she looked after my apartment like it was her own, leaving me flowers when she left - I'd happily host her again and would strongly recommend to all. x
