Breakfast was good if you like just fresh fruit and bread. Customer service was good but only till about 3:00p and there didn't seem to be anyone at the front desk after that. I had to go out and purchase ice at the quickie mart down the street because they did not have an ice machine available. Other than that... More

If you arrive at Pensione Nichols expecting hotel-like amenities and service, or a Bed & Breakfast that caters to huge gourmet breakfasts, fluffy down comforters and 400 count sheets, you will be disappointed. But, if you have in mind a welcoming, somewhat funky and entirely charming "off the beaten path" European style pension you will be delighted. Plus, the location... More

We booked after purchasing 2 Living Social coupons. It seemed like a great deal and we were looking forward to our little Seattle B&B getaway. We came in on the Clipper boat from Victoria quite late and arrived at the Pensione around 9pm. We were advised in advance that no staff would be around. We were emailed the entry code... More

I’d like to start out by saying some good things about Pensione Nichols B&B. The location is great, it’s a block from Pikes Place Market. The owner was very friendly and the price was reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. Some not so good features include: Sharing a bathroom with other guests, flies in the living room area,... More

This hotel has a brilliant location. Be prepared to share bathrooms, however plenty of hot water and towels. Great breakfast - fresh fruit and wonderful breads (which change every day) with great Jam and Peanut butter. If you are a Tea drinker ask for Fresh milk in advance,otherwise it's cream and best for me was to turn to coffee instead.... More

My friend and I stayed here the night we came to Seattle for the Beyonce concert! It's so cute and very European style/feel. We shared a room with a queen and a full, and although we shared a bathroom with the floor we were the only ones staying there that night so we had the place to ourselves. There's a... More

The location was perfect for walking everywhere. Lindsey and Eddie were very welcoming and provided great information on the local area, things to see and do. Loved the large apartment and delicious healthy breakfast.

If you want to do something a little different from your average hotel, this is a very neat experience. Plus the location is amazing! Our room was gigantic, the hotel could not have been more charming, and the view was absolutely incredible!

I was looking for an inexpensive B&B near a conference, but wanted to know if they could arrange for a mini-fridge to be in my room. I left two messages kindly asking them to call me and let me know if it were possible, and never heard back. I'm sure the positive reviews are accurate, but I never got a... More

This is one of the neatest B&Bs I have seen. All the aspects you would want in a stay are there: clean, cozy, perfect location (RIGHT by Pikes Place Market), safe, etc. Although, I have to comment mostly on the staff. The staff was incredible. They were kind, respectful, helpful, funny, insightful, and easy to work with. The manager specifically... More
