Score from 740 reviews Very good
The idea of a vintage type hotel at a reasonable price. The pictures made it look very classy.
The rooms were TINY, door locks were flimsy, and the bed was VERY uncomfortable and noisy. Squeaking and creaking when we got into it.
Location and value for money
Decor a little shabby but authentic
Great historic hotel from 1910, like going back in time. Staff helpful and nice. Furniture looks original too.
I think the bed was from 1910 as well. Bouncy, small and uncomfortable. Bath and shower down the hall felt like camping.
Short bed, shared toilet with broken door, shared bathroom, place in a urgent need of TLC
5min walk to the Clink !! Appreciated the uniqueness of building and the commitment of owners/managers to keep it that way...yes it is old....yes it is well worn....yes you will share a toilet and shower / bath with others, but do not let that stop you. Tea House was lovely, used it morning and night. Price was right for solo trvlr. Room and Public facilities (showers/toilets) were clean . I felt safe. Kept up your fitness regimen (36 stairs from street to lobby :) !
bouncy spring bed may be vintage-accurate however makes one seasick.
I only stayed for about 20 minutes after checking in and seeing the room I was issued. There was a bed, dresser, and sink (with brown already opened soap on it). Before checking in and after checking out the service was mediocre at best. Again, NOT RECOMMENDED
Great location! Good price
BRIGHT lights just outside windows; a shade or dark curtain would help a lot! Very loud just outside windows all night long; a fan would help. Very warm, even with window open; a fan would help. "Breakfast" was meager
Location in the international area was fun. New restaurants for us to try out. The breakfast was exceptional! Not the usual bad coffee and mass manufactured pastry, this was a REAL quality coffee shop with great coffee, and an excellent of bakery quality goods.
Bathrooms down the hall. Men's was closer to our room, but the women's was way down the hall, and crossed the main corridor to the office so really had to dress before those nighttime excursions. There was no privacy for conversation in our room either. We could completely hear every word of the couple next door, and certainly didn't miss the domestic dispute! Obviously not a place for any intimate activities unless you are the sort that likes to go public.
This hotel has character, a fabulous owner who is still onsite at 945pm checking in guests, comfy beds, windows that open, and walking distance to the train station.
The price was great and the staff was super friendly. We had a lovely stay. The location is right in the middle of everything.
This is an old building so you have community bathrooms and shared shower etc which is pretty small. I also was not a giant fan of walking up three flights of stairs to get to our room - it was pretty hot out. Honestly though I just had not been there before so it was unexpected.
The history, quirkiness & character made this place worth the stay. Like entering a time machine and being transported into another era. You certainly can't get that experience at a Marriott or a Days Inn. The location was also fantastic.
The shower was broken and the tub I had to use instead was pretty dusty. The "free breakfast" was just a coffee plus one not-great pastry from the shop below which didn't open until 8am.That being said, I didn't mind much since the uniqueness of the place made up for it.
Wifi worked well, staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice in the morning (if the worker shows up on time to offer it). Although there was only one shower for the whole floor (a negative aspect), it was a nice shower and offered privacy.
Hotel cost much too much and offered very little. Rooms were extremely worn out and dirty, offered no expected amenities from a 2 star hotel. Toilets offered no privacy as there are two in a small room in which the doors did not lock and were only 3 feet tall. While washing your hands at the sink you could even see the guy in the stall right next to you (small doors that expose your knees yet can be easily seen over when standing). The complex also offered no sound insulation causing us to have to listen to a man vomiting all night in the bathroom down the hall. The hotel is located in a poorer neighborhood, and walking north to the city center required passing dozens of homeless and shady characters.
there was no tv in my room
*Staff were friendly and helpful
*The shower was terrible, no water pressure, you could not get the temperature right. * There was so much noise that you didn't get much sleep.
Staff was ENORMOUSLY helpful...printed out our boarding passes in their own office and telephoned us later to say we hadnt picked up one. A warm sense of history; would happily stay there again, Great sources of info about restaurants and places to visit and local transport,etc etc. YAY!
a general problem NOT confined to the hotel is occasional balky wifi system. BUT staff were extremely helpful in letting us use office system
too much light & noise thru window; had to wait for bathroom every time; stairs were difficult, esp. up to 2nd floor to check in
Excellent. Full of history and kindness. Jan is the nicest person I have seen in a while. She hugged me when I left, making me feel very welcome. And I stayed one night only. Brilliant landmark in very good location. You won't go there if you're looking for a Hilton treatment. You will go there to feel at home, just in a bit older building :)
Good coffee house and pretty cheap for downtown Seattle. The location isn't too bad.
There was nothing good about this place at all. I stayed there for a week and not once did they clean my room or provide clean towels. If you want clean towels you have to steal them from other rooms. The shared bathroom was pretty gross as to be expected. There was no AC and keeping the windows open is difficult because of all the noise. Overall this place is not very good. Its fine for one night but anything more than that sucks.
Enjoyed local Japanese restaurants and the atmosphere of historical significance. Beautiful linen.
No hot water in room basin First night bed very uncomfortable
Staffs are kind and helpful, and I enjoyed the lovery room with 100year-old(?) furnitures.
Best breakfast ever, very clean, overly nice lady checking us in, very good location close to public transport and also walkable distance to greyhound buses. could store our luggage the whole day without having to pay too. free water bottles in the rooms :) 24 hour reception!
can't complain! first hotel review ever but had to write one. not a upper class hotel but the sweetest thing you could ever get in Seattle for that kind of money.
Near Chinatown and train station, convenience , full of history value
Very old hotel .
The owner (on check-out) was very helpful and only charged for 2 nights, despite only staying 1 from our intended 3 night stay. The coffee shop / museum which was next door.
-Rude, unhelpful check-in man who watched us struggle with 4 cases up 2 flights of stairs. Then during check in continued to disrespect our nationality. -Were given a room that was tiny, smelly, dirty and had an unsturdy bed. -Not told about any wifi. -No TV / No A/C and dirty old sink in the corner -no complimentary toiletries apart from water and 2 plastic cups provided or info given -Bathroom a distance from room along dark corridor where carpets were worn and dirty -returned to room 6hrs later to check out and bed had not been made or towels replaced (final straw - check out!) -wouldn't class as a hotel, more like the stay expected at a hostel. Very disappointed. If the hotel was refurbished like the coffee shop it would be much more appealing. Being told "we're 110yrs old" is no excuse to have no new modern fixtures and fittings without losing any of the character of the building.
The historical information that was presented on the walls of the café and common room were very interesting. Most of the woodwork looks original, and it seemed that they really want to keep the hotel as accurate as possible. The location was a little off the beaten path, but was still within walking distance of some great places in the International District.
The mattress was an old spring mattress that was neither soft nor comfortable. As I tried to sleep on it, I constantly felt like I was being rolled out of it, and whenever I moved, it squeaked loud enough to wake me up. The door that used to join the room next to me was blocked by a vanity, but didn't fit the door frame. I could see into their room over the top of the door, and the light came into my room. All of the furniture in the room, minus the bed, were very dusty, and the furniture was so large for such a small space that there was no room to really move or get dressed. The ventilation window that is traditionally over the room door into the hallway was boarded up in every room, which meant I had no moving air at all in the room, even with the window open. I actually used the chain-lock to lock the door and propped it open so I could get some breeze. It was not pleasant knowing that anyone could watch me sleeping. Also, the window shade is a pull down, so it's all or nothing when it comes to getting a breeze and not having privacy. The bathrooms are shared, but apparently there is a ladies's room and a men's room, though neither are labeled as such. I used the "men's room" which crammed two toilets and a sink, with dividers into a very small space. The doors actually swung over the toilet seats because it was so tight. The door to the room didn't close all the way, and only one of the stalls had a lock to keep that door shut. Everyone in the hallway could hear and smell the business going on in there. Even though they are shared bathrooms, there are no sets covers for sanitary purposes, and the soap at the sink is the leftover bars of soap from the rooms. I was not about to wash my hands on bars of soap that multiple people have put their hands on. The shower room was decent, but lacked a stool to place my clothing on.
We honestly wanted to like this place. We really did. First of all, I did not really feel like this place provided a good historic experience. If you want a good historic experience, go to a museum. Secondly, they require you to give them your photo IDs and credit card information. They photocopy your IDs and copy down the credit card information, and it is all stored in a binder. The binder is basically kept in a drawer in a room where anyone can walk in and out... The drawer isn't even lockable it is just..there... So basically you don't know who can access your private and personal information. Secondly, the wifi does not work. I asked for the wifi password twice and each time it didn't work. Thirdly, it is SO loud at night. You can here literally everything. Every time someone goes to the public washrooms, you can here it. Every time a car drives by, you can here it. Every time a plane flies by, you can hear it. There were SO many flights and trucks driving by. You can also here everything that the people on the streets are saying. None of us could fall asleep and ended up sleeping for about two hours. Fourthly, do not be fooled by the free breakfast. If you are expecting something along the lines of toast and cereal and fruit etc (aka the most basic breakfasts out there), you will be disappointed. You get a cup of tea/coffee of your choice and a pastry. I don't know about everyone else but we were definitely not feeling an apple strudel with at 8 in the morning. This location is also not that close to downtown Seattle. It's not exactly a convenient walking distance to all the shops. I don't know why this place is so expensive for a night. I think it should be around $70 at most. You're better off staying at one of those random motels along the highways. Oh, and the pillows and towels all had stains on them...
