Seattle Hill House is located within walking distance of the Space Needle, downtown and Pike Street Market, I strongly suggest returning to the B and B via the bus if you wish to avoid a steep hill climb. The bus lines run directly in front of Seattle Hill House. Catch the bus 1.5 blocks down the street at Broadway. The... More

We stayed for 3 nights. It was great! Leanne, the innkeeper, is so helpful and friendly. Breakfasts were great with lots of conversation and travel hints. Capitol Hill is perfectly located to the downtown area and public transportation. Parking is included, if you have car. Enjoy Seattle and your stay at the B&B.

Needed a place to stay while we visited the city, and found the Seattle Hill House. The room was really nice, and the food was great. Everything was excellent, including the service. It is located in a nice neighborhood, with plenty to see and do near by.

First I will say that the owner and her staff great as was the breakfast. The location is fine and parking is handy. However the room (Madras) is in the basement (dark), right below the breakfast room (built in alarm), is in desperate need of refurbishing (think Sally Ann) and must have a mold problem as we sneezed the whole...

We wish they would have let us know they were unhappy with the room- usually one of our favorites! But different tastes for different people which is why there are so many choices to eat and stay on the planet. We were just not a perfect match this time. Will continue to have wonderful service and great breakfast. Have been... More

Cute, comfortable, well located and clean. On site innkeeper, Jack, was a great help, patient, kind and offered terrific suggestions for negotiating buses, and streets. Breakfasts were delicious, creative, beautiful and plentiful. The chef and Jack took care to check for preferences and allergies and made sure I had plenty of time to eat before I had to get on...

My family had the house to ourselves. Felt like I was home! Grocery store, drug store, park are all walking distance. The breakfast and service was wonderful, beds were very comfortable. Close to the freeway if you are driving and new to Seattle. 20 mins from the airport, Space needle and Pike place, you won't get lost. Loved that we... More

This was a lovely note to receive both online in the review and in person.

I was shocked to receive the email from the owner telling me she already charged my credit card for the damage she claimed I did without letting me know first or showing any proof. I did break the glass tray so I left $10 and figured she can always contact me. BUT I have NO idea about what "orange liquid"... More

A very unfortunate experience for us. We optimistically hoped that the "drugs" that were being used by this guest were legitimate. The condition of the room after she left was unbelievable. Garbage everywhere and an odd liquid spilled all over bathroom. We tried to clean up but were unable to. Ended up replacing toilet seat and had to lose money... More

What an amazing place to stay in the heart of Seattle. The accommodations were very comfortable and immaculate. The breakfasts were simply outstanding; drank entirely too much of Seattle's best coffee and ate the best Eggs Benedict; the Hollandaise sauce was very light and tasty. Leanne and Anna were both very gracious. We were a bunch of ladies from throughout... More

I very much appreciated having this group choose us for their stay! They were all lovely and my only wish would be that I could make a career of hosting longer-stay groups of this quality all the time! So much fun to get to know them a bit and see them enjoy themselves! The best part of may career. More

I just returned home from a 5 day stay at Seattle Hill House. Leanne, the owner, was gracious and 100% accommodating. The home is an old Victorian in a wonderful walking neighborhood with parks, shopping, eating, and people watching a step outside the door. The bus runs often from across the street so you can get anywhere, and since we... More

I was honored to be given such a positive review by a woman that truly knows her stuff! A senior reviewer AND the one that planned the trip for her " ladies" it really feels good to know that all went well. The toilet paper? Had to smile!

I was visiting a friend and was fortunate enough to be able to stay at the Seattle Hill House.

Leanne was very invested in making sure that all guests were comfortable and well taken care of. The chef was fantastic. Although... More

Very nice girl and would love to have her back! YES- the eggs benedict - which I personally cannot take credit for- all the chef!- is by far the best! You can taste the lemon and butter in the sauce! So good I cannot order out anymore! :) More
