My husband and I stayed at this inn for 6 nights and it was an excellent experience for us. The inn was very easy to find and the taxi driver had no problems with the directions that were given to us. We arrived at 8pm and the owner David promptly showed up to check us in when we arrived.
We stayed in the Opal Room which was very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. The shower was good although the water pressure was not too strong. Toiletries and fresh bath/face towels were provided for our stay.
The breakfasts made by Beverly, the innkeeper, were very tasty and we had something different each of the 6 mornings we were there. The meals were exactly as described on the Inn's website. There was also a sideboard with a kettle for boiling water & a wide assortment of teas, fresh milk ,sugar and honey, which we enjoyed very much at night. The almond biscotti laid out each day was yummy and there were also small dishes with chocolate, biscuits and nuts in the living room, for guests to enjoy all day.
The Inn has 2 computer terminals for guests to use and the access speed is very fast. The den also has many brochures and guidebooks which were useful for us. It also has a list of the nearby restaurants and a catalogue of their menus for guests to refer to which we thought was an excellent idea.
The location of the Inn is extremely convenient, with 2 buses (Nos 8 and 43) only 1min walk away which took us to the downtown area in less than 10min. There are plenty of eating outlets just 5min walk from the Inn along the main street of Broadway, which also has a QFC supermarket.
We rented a car for 2 of the days we were in Seattle, and there is free onsite parking in the Inn, which was very convenient.
The Capitol Hill district is a pretty one and there are plenty of interesting things to explore, like Volunteer Park, the Chapel of St Ignatius, Pike/Pine district and Broadway. It is a safe district and close to downtown. In particular, the 11th Ave Inn is one of the closest B&Bs in Capitol Hill to the downtown area, as compared to others like the Bacon Mansion or the Shafer Ballie (we considered these other options before booking the 11th Ave Inn).
We would not hesitate to recommend this Inn to anybody who wants to visit Seattle and stay in a safe and convenient area. We were given a discounted rate for the Opal Room as we stayed a total of 6 nights and we considered it very worth our while, given the level of comfort that we enjoyed.
