    Description

    The Space

    **Please click on "read more" and read everything below before booking** Our place is a bit unusual and we want to be sure it's a great match for your style of traveling. Please read all details below, plus the house rules so you don't miss anything that might really matter to you once you get here (shared bathroom, ladder, etc) • This is studio #7 - a private airbnb room designed as a simple & affordable space for arts-related guests near the heart of Seattle's downtown gallery district. But you don't have to be an artist to stay here - all are welcome! • You'll have this private room all to yourself. It's located among 15 other art studios on the 2nd floor of our building in the Japantown area of Seattle's historic International District. It has an upper bed-loft with a luxurious Novaform queen mattress & very comfortable bedding. Please note that you'll need to climb a ladder to get up into the bed loft. The lower portion of the room has a small love seat couch (not meant for sleeping), desk & chair, and other basic furniture. Free wifi and satellite TV w/HBO are included. Shared bathrooms & kitchenette are very close by. ~~~~~~~~~ important notes: • We don't recommend booking this room if you have trouble climbing stairs & ladders. There is a pretty long flight of stairs to get up to our floor (no elevator), and you'll need to climb a ladder to get up into the bed area of the loft. The couch is small and is not meant for sleeping. • You'll have access to 2 shared bathrooms nearby down the hallway, one with a shower. You can also use our shared kitchenette area with fridge & microwave (no stove). Although there are other artists working in the building and sharing these common areas, they don't live here and most of the time you'll hardly see anyone around. Check out our many reviews for feedback about the shared bathrooms if you're wondering... • Our listing is a little unusual and we want to be sure it's going to meet your needs before you choose to book it. Please send us a note with the secret code word TEDDY (that's our dog) - this will let us know you hung in there and read the whole thing. • Also before booking make sure your user i.d. profile is complete, including a good clear photo of you. It helps with security in our building to be able to identify guests. Thank you!

    Interaction with Guests

    Our style is to give guests total privacy, but to be available if you need anything. Some guests arrive in the evening and might feel uncomfortable asking questions late at night - so we've tried to provide as much info as possible to help you figure things out. You'll see some post-it notes in the shared spaces, which most people find helpful, (but some find irritating - sorry!) There's also a guidebook on the desk in the room which will hopefully answer most of your questions. But please don't be shy if you need something or have questions. We're easy to reach, and often we're close by during the day working somewhere in the building.

    The Neighborhood

    This is a fun & interesting international neighborhood with lots of quirky shops and tons of food choices - including a great sushi restaurant right in our building. There's quick take-out to high end, and everything in between. Uwajimaya Asian specialty supermarket is close by, plus coffee shops & bakeries - you won't go hungry in this neighborhood! • Check our online Guidebook to see all the great restaurants & attractions we've bookmarked in our neighborhood. We also have a guidebook in the room when you arrive with some of our favorite spots nearby for food, plus maps and other details. • We're just a few blocks from the baseball & soccer/football stadiums. There are many bars and clubs within walking distance, and even more just a quick bus ride away. Since the building is right downtown you can also easily visit the Seattle Art Museum, Sculpture Park, Pike Place Market, the Space Needle, Experience Music Project, and many other great Seattle attractions. • Please note that we're right next to the Pioneer Square neighborhood, which tends to have some homeless people on the streets. Along with the conveniences of being right downtown - great public transportation & cool places to visit - this is city life and we don't recommend walking around by yourself late at night.

    Getting Around

    • We're perfectly located for all forms of public transportation: the Light Rail train stop is one block away for easy, affordable access to SeaTac airport; the AmTrak train station is also just a few blocks away; quick easy access to many bus routes, including the Bolt Bus; the waterfront with ferry terminals is just a short walk away. • Street parking is free after 8pm till 7am, and there are many pay-to-park lots all around us. • If you'll be using a lot of public transportation you might want to buy an Orca Card ($5). You can load it up with however much $ you'd like, and then use it for quicker access when boarding the Light Rail train, buses, etc. Orca kiosks can be found near the ticket & boarding areas at most transportation hubs. • When you check out, feel free to leave your Orca card on the desk for future guests to use.

    Other Things to Note

    There is a long flight of stairs to get up to our floor and no elevator. Also you need to climb a ladder to get up into the bed loft. And finally just want to make triple sure you've noticed this has a shared bathroom. (Remember to mention the secret code word TEDDY to let us know our place is perfect for you!)

    Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.

    Place's rules

    Please be sure to read our house rules & our entire description about THE SPACE before booking - and look for our *secret code word*! • 2 guests max - 1 or 2 guests sharing the bed. The small couch is not meant as an extra bed, and unfortunately we cannot accommodate extra guests. • 2 week max • check-in time during winter months is more flexible - let us know what is ideal for you (you can also drop off luggage early) • check-out is usually by noon - but right now during winter months you can ask about a later check-out (you can also store luggage after) • no smoking or vaping of any kind inside the building • bathrooms & kitchenette are shared • you'll need to climb a ladder to get up into the bed • we supply all bedding & towels, and have a very comfortable bed - read our many reviews! The shared bathroom with the shower has shampoo, body wash, conditioner, body lotion, Q-tips & other misc. There's also a hair dryer under the sink, and an iron & ironing board in the other bathroom. • we sometimes have other airbnb guests in a nearby room, so please be mindful of noise in the hallway late at night & in the early morning. • our artist tenants are working nearby, plus other airbnb guests - so please no parties, extra guests or loud music. • kitchenette & bathrooms are shared with the other tenants who work in the building, (none of the artists live here though), and with guests in our other airbnb room. We ask that after using the kitchen, bathroom or shower please look around and tidy things up so it's nice for the next person. There are cleaning supplies under the sinks if needed. Take your towel & all personal belongings back to your room. Even though these are shared areas, usually it's very quiet and it will often seem like you are the only one here. Still, it's important to clean up & leave the common areas nice. Other people are actually here working in the building, and we will all notice your efforts. • in your room please remember at check-out time the airbnb way is to leave things as you found them. This means cleaning up after yourself as much as possible - as if you were visiting friends. Thanks!
