“Stay at a hotel instead”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

This place was not designed for short term stays. Also had no air, uncomfortable bed and a general "old" feeling. Didn't really feel safe here and saw a few questionable characters outside. Next time, I'd do a hotel instead.

This place gave us the willies! We arrived in the evening and buzzed the door. We could see no one was at the front counter. Then we noticed a phone outside the building , we buzzed the manager. He said he wasnt there but he would send someone to let us in. Well 20 min go by... no one, except a resident ( perhaps a drug rehab patient?) came out to smoke a cig. While the door was open we slid in and retireved our own room keys, from the slot behind the counter.( the manager told us to retrieve our keys) Then we needed to find out where to park? We called the manager back and asked where we parked and all he could say is, "oh you have a car?" then he says, "go around the building and use your key and slide open the gate then once in side you have to use your key to use the elevator.....it was dark and creepy out side, a few men lingering out front, some people shouting and fighting across the street and it was just me and my disabled daughter. No freakin way, we threw the keys back on the counter with a note that said...thanks but no thanks! Dont stay there if you care about safety! Looked like a pretty gross place all around.

Do not stay there. This is the most horrible place ever. Hot, sticky, dirty (a ball of hair in the kitchen sink anyone?), ripped linen, awful smell. We booked two nights but we just couldn't handle it and left at 10 pm after we came back from dinner. Not something you would like to experience on your holiday. We booked it through booking.com as nothing else was available (some kind of conference in Seattle at that time), but luckily a nearby hotel had a room for that night.
They still charged us for the first night but with a discount, $120 instead of $150 - still too much! We were planning to spend two nights in Seattle but after that experience we did not feel like it and left for Vancouver in the morning.
Awful, horrible, dirty place and they ask for A LOT of money,

I have stayed at the First Hill Apartments many times between 2001-2006 and will continue to stay there when I come to Seattle for medical appointments. The rooms are clean, in good repair, the staff is friendly and helpful. It is nice to have a private, fully furnished apartment with kitchen, plus a van with driver to take me to the grocery store or appointments. I am comfortable walking alone through most areas in the neighborhood. Located one block off the main road and near to bus stops, but highway noise is minimal. This has truly been my 'home away from home'.
