This small studio is a perfect Seattle hotel alternative for a couple. The low-key historic building is very centrally located - just blocks from light-rail and bus stops. An oasis - with a basic kitchen! - in the middle of the city's action.
Please read this whole description for important details!
Our downtown apartment is small (about 200 sq ft) and outfitted to be the perfect alternative to a hotel, with a super comfy, queen-sized bed and accompanying reading chair. There is a small kitchen that's perfect for breakfast and lunch, though the temptations of Pike Place Market (about 9 blocks, or less than 15 minutes walking) and Seattle's best cafes and restaurants are inescapable. The apartment also features a small table and two stools for eating or working, a coffee maker, microwave, teapot, iron, hair dryer, and of course, all linens, dishes and silverware.
The Vintage Downtown Seattle Studio is very centrally located, and there is no need for a car. In addition to Pike Place Market, you can walk to Pioneer Square to enjoy the Seattle Underground Tour. Stroll to the waterfront to check out the Seattle Aquarium or hop a ferry to Bainbridge or Vashon Islands. Attending a conference? The Convention Center is just 7 blocks away. Here to shop? Walk down to Pike and Pine or Westlake Center. From there, take the monorail to Seattle Center with the Space Needle, EMP Museum, and Key Arena. If you're willing to walk a little farther - about a mile - you could walk to a game at Safeco or Centurylink fields or have dim sum in the International District. If you chose to walk UP the hill you could party with the hipsters in vibrant Capitol Hill. We should also mention the Paramount and 5th Avenue theaters, the Showbox, Benaroya Hall - all within walking distance. We could go on, but it would be endless. In short, the Vintage Downtown Seattle Studio is in the middle of it all.
If you're not into walking (and beware, there are hills - sometimes steep ones), there is a plethora of transportation options. Buses, light rail, cabs, Uber, Zipcar, Cars-to-Go, oh my!
Please be aware that this is a ground-floor apartment in downtown Seattle - near the Renaissance and 1/3 the price. The building across from us has been demolished, and there is a new high-rise being built. There probably will be consistent noise during the day on weekdays. Also, there is regular city noise at night. It does not bother us, but it may bother sensitive sleepers. We can recommend earplugs. We CANNOT give refunds after your arrival due to noise.
Finally, parking in downtown Seattle is difficult. Nearby street parking costs $4 per hour, with a 2-hour limit. Nearby garages typically cost about $8 per hour, $20 for 4 hours, or $35-$45 for 24 hours.
We charge a one-time $45 cleaning fee. This will be added automatically when you make your reservation.

We're a couple of laid-back, former Peace Corps sweethearts. Now, we both teach for Seattle-area Community Colleges, spend time with our young son and our little dog at Greenlake, ride our bikes all over our beautiful city and beyond, and continue to travel whenever we can. We're happy to meet visitors and help out with recommendations of tourist attractions, restaurants, bike routes, etc.!
