Fantastic location and price. Friendly and accommodating staff. Clean, shared bathrooms (we never had to wait to use them). We stayed for four nights in Room 7... it has two large windows facing 1st Ave. My husband and I had a wonderful time :) We will miss the delicious, french-pressed coffee. Hope to come back again someday!

We planned our trip around tickets to a show at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle. Our goal was to get some time together and be able to relax after the show. Pensione Nichols was the ideal location! We received a welcoming email reminder of our reservations with directions, parking suggestions, alternative transportation options, and an access code. We parked the... More

This B&B has many options for rooms, some with a shared bathroom to apartments with their own bath, kitchen, and killer views of Pikes Market and of course the water. The living room also has outstanding views with a very large and comfortable sitting area that includes the breakfast/dining room. It was empty each time I used it for access... More

HMMM... I'm a bit perplexed at all the glowing reviews and lofty ratings left here. It's true that the location is probably as good as it gets. A block and a half from Pike Place Market! Walking distance to probably around 50 different places to eat! As for the Pensione, it's nice enough for me. Standard rooms are very basic,... More

I was reading through my emails one day and stumbled across a Groupon for the Pensione Nichols. I thought, for the price, why not give it a shot. So I went in with low expectations, just thought it would be a cheap Seattle overnight for us. We took the train from Portland to Seattle and walked from the train station... More

I ran across this great place on Living Social. So glad I did. I can't wait to plan our next trip to Seattle which will include staying at Pensione Nichols. We had ridden the train up to Seattle for the weekend and just wanted someplace that we could sight-see and foodie-fix in walking or transit distance. I was a little... More

We purchased a Groupon a few months back and are SO glad we did. It is in the best location. You can look out onto Pike Place because you are literally almost on top of it. Breakfast is served every morning. Super simple, but the staff is so nice and the food was tasty. Very quaint and cute. Highly recommend... More

Loved staying at the charming and very comfortable Pensione Nichols. It's a great location. Parked the car in the recommended garage and didn't need it till check out time. Enjoyed a delicious breakfast in the living room/breakfast area with a beautiful water view. Had dinner at Le Pichet, a French bistro a couple of doors down. Was I in Seattle... More

Whenever we are in the city we stay at Pensione Nichols. It is a very charming building that is elegantly decorated in a vintage style. Breakfast is always delicious and the french press coffee is a perfect way to rev up for the day's adventures. The location couldn't be better - less than a block from Pike Place Market, and... More

Reading the reviews from fellow Trip Advisor travelers, we were directed to this warm, quaint, charming place steps from Pike's Market. As my husband and I were in Seattle for a few days of romance and relaxation, this venue was perfect. Lindsay has owned this property for over 25 years, and looking at the legions of travelers and reviews posted... More
