a gem – My wedding party stayed at the Pensione for almost a week. The staff was very accomodating. The surroundings were comfortable and the views breathtaking. It reminded me of several places I've stayed while in Europe. The rates were great and being in the Pike Place Market was fabulous! My friends had a great time shopping without having to get into a car or walk more than a block. The food was delicious. The breakfast fruit was fresh and the homemade jam was delicious! My family always uses this B and B. Check it out..you won't be sorry!
Sleepless in Seattle – This is not a modern hotel. Very steep stairs to negotiate. Shared bathrooms, one phone line, no desk in room. The furniture is "antique"... old and broken down (mattress had a hole in the middle of it). Lighting was non-existant due to low wattage bulbs (hard to read in the evenings). Our room had no cieling fan, requiring we open the window onto 1st Ave for ventilation and listen to city traffic all night. The breakfast consisted of bread, jam, some sliced fruit, juice, coffee (nice snack). Given the proximity to Pike's Market, much more could have been done. The owner is not on site, leaving the 2nd/3rd shift to a couple of kids. This place has lots of unrealized potential. New blood is needed.
Dog Friendly – This has become my home away from home when in Seattle. The location is great and my dog is also welcome. I travel here on business, but would not say that it caters to business travelers.
Very spacious, great view – My husband and I stayed at this B&B for two nights after spending over a week in Alaska and before going home to the East Coast. It was wonderful! We had a suit with a balcony and great view. We cooked dinner one night with fresh food purchased at the Market close by. We had a great time, watching the water and sky chaning the color while we ate. In the living room with safa and comfortable chairs, we were so relaxed. If we were back in Seattle, we will be sure to get the same suite at this wonderful B&B!
wonderful – This is the perfect hotel for travelers who are looking for a great view, a great location, great service and relaxing surroundings. The decor is unique and charming. but ensure you get a room either at the front or the back of the hotel. A very friendly and informal atmosphere.
