“Best b&b ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

Well placed for nightlife pub/micro brew places to eat things to do transport links. Very warm welcome from host Bennett who provides a great quality breakfast every morning. The inn is fantastic, with lovely spacious rooms and great decor. Not a place for kids as the glassware is displayed everywhere and looks very expensive, great place to enjoy a bottle of wine on a wet seattle night in front of a nice fire

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

Great hospitality in this delightful property in central Seattle. The location is perfect - within reasonable walking distance of the downtown area (about a half hour walk to Pike Place Market)
and a few minutes walk from the eateries and hostelries of Capitol Hill & Broadway.

The house is smartly decorated and the rooms really tasteful. The host gives a warm welcome, with lots of tips for what to do in Seattle, and serves scrummy breakfasts.

I would definitely stay here again!

We stated at Gaslight Inn for two nights, and found it simply delightful. In the quiet Capitol Hill area above downtown Seattle, this B&B is about a 30 minute walk downhill to the harbour (and a longer walk back -- take the bus!). Our welcome was warm, our room lovely, and the breakfasts provided great company and a good selection of warm and cold things to eat. There were also some nice restaurants and bars within walking distance -- the Zink restaurant/bar did a happy hour with appetisers which was plenty of very nice food for a decent price. Highly recommended -- we would definitely stay at the Gaslight Inn again!

This was my first time staying at the Gaslight Inn and it was a wonderful experience. The location is excellent; everything I wanted is within walking distance. The atmosphere is calm, quiet, and comfortable. Breakfast is delicious and enough to get one started for a day of sightseeing. The room was so very comfortable, quiet and peaceful. The owner and his staff are pleasant, responsive, and a great asset to the Inn. I cannot think of a better place to stay while visiting Seattle.

We returned to the Gaslight Inn for the second time and again had a wonderful stay in a astonishingly Jugendstil athmosphere. Absolutely our first choice in Seattle. Capitol Hill is a perfect location ; Stephen is a great host.

Room Tip: we liked the 106 with a great view to the city

My brother was terminally ill and in critical care at one of Seattle's premier hospitals. All I can tell you is that each evening when I would return from spending hours and hours in tremendous grief and despair along side my brother, the Inn staff were remarkably supportive, genuine and courageous in their kindness and hospitable care toward me and my husband. The hotel service was impeccable and the room quality and comfort was, well,... frankly remarkable. The Gaslight Inn was all there was between our nights being met with peace, comfort and restful sleep, or with restless and irritable fatigue. I assure you, our nights were heavenly, which consequently made the prospects of another heart-wrenching day at the hospital achievable. A 5-star rating is far short of being enough. I highly recommend this charming hotel and its wonderful staff!

If your destination is Capital Hill area, be sure to stay at Gaslight Inn. Bennett (Steve) is a fantastic host. He provides you great advice on where to go and how to get there. Our room, 102, is very spacious with a comfortable bed and pillows. The temps in Seattle were around 80, even without air conditioning the room was very comfortable. The continental breakfast provides just enough to get your day started.

All of the pics on Gaslight's website are extremely accurate!

Room Tip: We had room 102, it has a mini fridge, full bath and another water closet (sink only) off the main b...
