I almost hate to post this review because I would love to keep this place a secret. The Pensione is an amazing place to stay. Lindsey, the owner, is available but not intrusive and her staff is wonderful. You'll have privacy, and the most amazing view of the Seattle waterfront from the beautiful parlor upstairs. The location is perfect for... More

Every summer I visit Seattle in August and I stay at Pensione Nichols. The Pensione is charming and situated in the Pike's Place Market. I look forward to an early morning run before having breakfast in a room with a lovely view of Puget Sound. Lindsey offers a warm welcome to her guests. As she serves French press coffee, fruit,...

Our family had a suite on the second floor that had it's own bathroom. This suite slept 5 and was clean and comfortable. Although we didn't use it, a full kitchen was included. The big selling points here are twofold. One...Lindsay. The owner is on site and looks after every guest personally. Two...location. You walk out the front door and... More

Thanks once again to Tripadvisor, we found another gem. This place is perfectly situated in downtown Seattle, close to great restaurants, waterfront, big stores, and Pike Market. Went on a wonderful tour of underground Seattle and highly recommend doing so. This pensione is just like something out of Europe or better - charming furnishings, great bed, lovely breakfast of breads,... More

I love this place. It is right where you want to be in Seattle. Lovely view of Puget Sound, the ferries, ferris wheel, 5 minute walk to Pike Place Market, lots of excellent restaurants close by. You barely have to leave the block! Plus, the owner and hostess, Lindsey is a wonderful, caring person. Her staff is friendly and helpful.... More

My fourth time staying at the Pensione while visiting from Ca. As always it was delightful with a spectacular view of the sound and a warm homey feel. Lindsay and staff were friendly and helpful. Convenient location above Pike place market. Great breakfast too! Would recommend it for families and solo travelers alike!

We booked a room at this bed and breakfast for 1 night so that we could catch the ferry early in the morning. The room that I booked is not the room we got. I had been told that we would have room 1 which is their largest interior room. We were put in room 4 and when I tried... More

I had a great first-time ever visit to Seattle, staying at Pensione Nichols B&B for 8 nights (business & vacation). I stayed in room #5, one of the rooms that shares 2 full baths and one half-bath. First of all, the B&B is located in a fantastic location - can't get any closer to Pike's unless you wanted to sleep... More

We were looking for a place near Pike Place Market. What a find! It was like we were staying in some European hotel. Very basic, simple rooms, clean, functional. No TV. The absolute only thing that might be drawback to some travelers is that our room was on the 3rd floor and no elevator for getting luggage up the stairs.... More

Price and location are great. In exchange for saving money, you give up windows and bathrooms in your room. If you have to depart before 8:30 you are also giving up breakfast (nothing was ready by 8.) No AC. Walls are thin; people going through the halls, running up and down stairs and in community room were extremely audible. Great... More
