I love this hotel. It is a European style/ hostel hotel, with clean bright bathrooms down the hall and a large shared kitchen with plates, silverware etc so you can prepare your own meals. Our room was large with big windows and a comfy bed. It is not fancy. Its an older, charming building in a trendy, clean and safe neighborhood away from downtown with plenty of nice shops, restaurants and coffeeshops to wander around and see. There is a bike path/running trail nearby on a beautiful body of water. The Thai restaurant below them is amazing. You need to find street parking, but its doable. When you arrive, you call them and they give you a key pad number to get in. They are very responsive by phone, and someone is always in the building to help, though it might be the maid. She is very nice. The other guests were all very quiet and respectful. I wont stay anywhere else in Seattle again. This is the best.
