I stayed here in May 2014. I was attending a conference in downton Seatlle but I didn't want to pay full price for downtown Seatle hotels (non-profit budget), I looked at a bunch of options, but nothing seems to fit the bill. I ran across Pensione Nichols and ot seemed great. I ended up staying in one of the front... More

We recently stayed at the Pensione Nichols for our nephew's wedding. We really enjoyed our stay- found lovely comfortable beds and linens, and loads of room in the suite/apartment 12. We had a full kitchen at our disposal, as well as sleeping for 4 and a great view of Pike Place market and the water. The hotel is super clean... More

Stayed here my first night in Seattle and despite the multiple flights up to the front desk, my stay was a delight. I had the room overlooking the street and the noise was barely noticeable. I should note that I'm a city girl and absolute quiet keeps me awake. You can see Pikes market from the library, you are only... More

Love the honour system. The rooms were a decent size. The whole building is gorgeous and historic. Comfortable bed and day bed. The only two things were: The construction of the new condo buildings across the street. Bylaws I guess for commercial construction is 6 am. So we were awoken two hours before the alarm was set to go off.... More

I am so glad I read the reviews. The staff was exactly as expected - not terribly friendly but just friendly enough to almost seem professional. It was always a mistake to ask for anything - shampoo, early coffee, leaving your luggage for a few extra hours. Yet when they wanted us to check out early, we accommodated them! And... More

I stayed at the Pensione Nichols with a friend while the Blue Jays were playing the Mariners. The location was great, right downtown and very accessible. The inn provides a slip for a parking garage nearby to make it far more reasonable which was a huge plus. They also didn't hike up their prices like many other places did during... More

Stayed for 3 nights (pre & post Alaska Cruise), couldn't have been more pleased. Yes the rooms are a bit away from the norm, yes it is not what you may expect, it is true that this is not slick, over polished nor ultra hip, BUT, we enjoyed it because of those reasons. We met truly delightful other guests and... More

The b&b is located right next to the Pike's Place Market and within reasonable walking distance of many landmarks and places to visit. The rooms are clean and cozy, and there are plenty of bathrooms; the only downside to the rooms are that you can hear pretty much everything in the hallway (and vice-versa), so some soundproofing might be nice....

This is a great place for a short stay. It is clean, and the location is in the heart of everything. The room we had was truly weird. It was in the centre of the building so had no windows and a shared bathroom down the hall. However, we only needed to use if for sleeping, and so it was... More

I researched many places to stay while in Seattle and found Pensione Nichols as the clear leader in value. The nightly rates were high but the central location and close proximity to Pike Place market made up for it. We saved by being so close to top attractions that we did not need to rent a car! Staff is around... More
