Two Bedroom Apt on Capitol Hill
|Per night||$129 - $179|
|Per week||$833 - $1,183|
St John's, built in 1910, is a charming old building. There are two floors of apartments, 26 in all, 8 of which are now short term rentals ranging from studios to 2-bedroom units, all over several retail spaces along Pike Street. We decided to have short term rentals available after traveling abroad and seeing how much more convenient it is than staying in hotels. This apartment, #304, is on the top floor and has a great view of Pike Street below.
Before we started renting this as a short-term, the apartment was fully remodeled, with new paint, carpets and kitchen cabinets. The kitchen is small-it takes the length of one wall-but it works really well. There is a dining table seating four, and next to that a small living area with couch and large stuffed chair. We have a TV with DVD and VCR and an extensive movie collection, CD Stereo and large, eclectic collection of music. The apartment has cable TV and FREE wireless high speed internet.
The master bedroom is on the corner of the building, with windows looking out on Pike and Harvard. It has a California king bed (it's 6" longer than a regular king size bed...great for tall people.) The second bedroom has two twin beds. These are adult sized twins--about six inches longer than a regular twin. They are pillowtops and are soft and luxurious. All our beds are fitted with 600 thread count sheets. There's nothing like a good nights sleep!
Our parking lot is right behind building. Parking costs an additional $12 daily.
There is a sunny back deck that all the residents in the building share, with lounge chairs and a gas barbecue.
We have full time manager living in the building, Johnny Sidorowicz.
Johnny will check you in and out and is your concierge while you stay with us.
To reserve we require a $250 deposit on Visa or MasterCard, the balance is payable when you check in. Please let us know if you'd like to stay with us.
The neighborhood is great to explore. Capitol Hill is a very up and coming neighborhood and we are in the middle of it. Across the street from us is a large QFC grocery store, open 24 hours, and it draws people. There are restaurants (and fun nightspots) all around us. Seattle's Community College is a block away, and Seattle University is about five blocks. Plus the best bookstore in Seattle, Elliot Bay Books, is two and a half blocks.
The convenience of the grocery across the street should not be underestimated. The store is quite large and truly world class, with a great selection of fresh produce, an excellent deli, bakery, lots of cheeses, and good selection of wines right in the store, and lots more! And, there is a large drugstore above the supermarket.
Along Pike Street, on the ground floor of our building, there are two great restaurants, a sandwich shop, and a hair salon. On the corner of Pike and Harvard is Ayutthaya Thai. If you like Thai food, you'll consider this a find. At the other end of the building is the Rosebud-- an American bistro menu, very moderately priced and very, very good! Between them, everyone absolutely loves the sandwiches at The Other Coast Cafe.

We spent three nights at the St. John's apartment at the end of October. Christine and Johnny the managers were very helpful and made us feel at home. The apartment was within walking distance to everything you would want to see in seattle, pikes market, space needle. The Capitol Hill area where the apartments are is a very nice area with many restaurants and bars. The apartment had everything you could want and was clean and well maintained. Would definitely stay here again and recommend the property
sleepless in Seattle

The apartment is actually nice. However, if you stay on a Friday or Saturday night bring some ear plugs. There is a bar across the street that stays open until 3 AM and the noise is very loud and constant until 3 AM on Friday and Saturday nights. It was impossible to sleep.

The apartment was perfectly located to downtown, and located in a neighborhood with all amenities within walking distance. The building manager was friendly and informative, and very accommodating for any needs or questions we had. The apartment was meticulously kept. We would definitely recommend this building to our friends and family.

visiting seattle and the st john's apts
June 23, 2011
i am a returning visitor to the st john's apts in the capital hill area of seattle. i was in a very large studio apt for one month ,mid may through mid june, 2011 the location could not have been better: about a block and a half from a bus stop to downtown seattle. three different buses were at this stop, so the wait was usually only 5 minutes. there was also a bus going to the university area across the street the bldg is across the street from a qfc grocery store with a drug store, dry cleaner and u.p.s. store all located above the grocery store the apt itself was in immaculate condition. the kitchen was quite large and equipped for someone living there fulltime the bed was more luxurious than my own at home they even provided a dvd player and dvd's for the large screen tv and offered not only books to read but maps, tourist touring brochures, take-out menus and more the bldg manager lives within the building so if anyone has any requests he is available and very helpful. as an example when i had extra heavy luggage and /or groceries he enlisted some younger residents to help me carry them into my apt they even provided extra light bulbs in short i hope to be able to return yearly as i just loved staying at the st john's apts

The manager John is a sexist jerk
June 8, 2011
I have lived in Seattle for almost 8 years now. I have been a frequent customer of The Rosebud, a wonderful bar below these apartments, the entire time I have lived in this city. I have never had a problem with any of the customers or staff at the Rosebud until John, the manager of the St. John Apartments, started showing up. He has hit on me and asked my friends about me when I am not there. Recently I turned him down and he continued to ask my friends about me. I told him to leave me alone and he then proceeded to tell my friends that I am a b*tch and that he was "looking for me." Twice I have had to call his boss at the St. John Apartments twice to tell him about John's rude advances and threats. If you're a woman and looking for a place to live DO NOT rent from these apartments unless you have a big burley man living with you for protection. John doesn't know that no means no and doesn't realize that he is in no way God's gift to women. The St. John Apartments are a wonderful space and provide beautiful living quarters for their residents. I am not saying anything bad about the apartments themselves. But John is a pig who needs to get over himself.

We stayed in Capital Hill because it was 1/2 way between the Huskie Stadium and downtown area. There are lots of busses that can take you where you want to go. The off street parking is a fabulous bonus that you don't realize until you get there. We thought there would be soap in the bathroom - but other than that no complaints.

Wish I had stayed here!

Hi, I came really close to choosing this apartment on Capitol Hill, but instead I chose a really nice B&B in the University District. However, now that I look at the location location location of this property, I SO wish I had chosen it. It is in the perfect place so close to everything we wanted to do. We would have had much more flexibility if we had stayed here. Oh well...next time. --Judy from Wisconsin

The accommodations were excellent and exceeded my expectations. The apartment was truly a "home away from home." Mark had stocked the kitchen with basic incregients and there also was a great supermarket across the street. I also cannot underestimate the comfort. The living room area was perfect for company- comfy couch and chair. In addition, the bedding in the master bedroom was exceptional- very good quality. I believe that Mark has thought of everything to make one's stay a extremely positive experience and I definitely will stay here again when traveling to Seattle.
Our stay at Saint John's Unit 304 exceeded our expectations. It was comforting and comfortable not to mention convenient to everything. Only a few steps away is an incredible gourmet grocery including an extensive wine selection, fresh fish and meats as well as a bakery and a Starbucks for all of our in home dining. Equally as close by you have a choice of Thai, American Bistro, Eastern Indian and an excellent Sandwich Shop for dining out. Up the street on Broadway are even more food and shopping options. The point is that I was overwhelmed by this sweet unit's proximity to an endless number of possibilites plus all that Seattle has to offer. The noise was a non-issue and I am a light sleeper. You may notice it a bit at first, but you will quickly get past it. The owner, Mark's hospitality, attention to details and our needs combined with the apartment's amenities, furnishings and decor were all perfect right down to the coordinating Martini glasses! Nothing was lacking except an excessive price tag! If he will have us, I know where we will be staying on all of our future trips to Seattle.
We also have a small, one room unit below 304. Here is what a recent tenant wrote after her stay: I just returned home from a four-week stay in #202, and loved it! The location is perfect for a city stay without a car~~it's a short walk downhill to downtown, a quick bus or taxi ride back up, and is surrounded by shops and restaurants, with a grocery store on the next block. The studio has everything I needed for an extended stay and was light and airy, and the owner and manager couldn't have been nicer.
