I can't say enough good things about this B&B. A friend and I stayed here while in town for a conference, and it was such a nice retreat. The antique decor is unique and beautiful, the resident dogs are adorable, and the bathrooms are clean and spacious. The rooms are simple, but clean and comfortable. There are three highlights: 1....

Comfortable vintage B&B in a fantastic location! Clean, quiet with a welcoming atmosphere, resident owner, and staff. Very comfortable common room to relax in. Above average continental breakfast with a generous fresh-cut fruit bowl, good bread and condiments, OJ and French-press coffee pot. Views from the common room and back deck are terrific! (See photos.) I will make it my...

The location is very good and directly around the corner of pike market place! The breakfast is ok, there is not a lot of choice, only strawberry jam and peanut butter every day. Unfortunately, one of the bagels we got served was very hard and dry, seemed to be 2 days old. The other bread was good and the bowl...

My brother and I recently stayed in Pensione Nichols and thoroughly enjoyed it! Exactly as advertised with a little extra added charm. It's a very old, well kept building. The continental breakfast was very good with great coffee! The dining room/living room is gorgeous! With a big grand piano and a view that can't be beat! The location is also...

A true gem of a B&B in the heart of Pike Place Market. Comfortable, quiet, and charming with an accommodating proprietor ready to meet your every need. The view of Elliott Bay from the communal "living room" is spectacular! I can heartily recommend staying here!

A former Seattle resident, I'd often walked past Pensione Nichols and wished I had a reason to stay there. Moved to Portland, and found the opportunity this weekend, when I brought my sister up for her birthday. We shared a room with two very comfortable beds made up with down comforters and a variety of pillows. While it had no...

In town for sister's 70th birthday and scored with this charming B&B. We watched the harbor action from our front 'porch' and comfy living room. Nice little kitchen, comfy beds and all very clean. Dropped down to the Market, caught a movie and strolled over to the SAM. Proprietor was there for us. Loved it.

I stayed for a night and was really impressed: great location, huge beautifully-decorated room, airy shared areas full of antiques and cool things to look at. I had to leave before breakfast so didn't get to try that alas. Be aware you have to go up a flight of stairs and there isn't a lift, also that not all the...

My husband, adult daughter and I stayed at the Pensione Nichols B&B for three days between Christmas and New Years and had a very good time. Our room was spotlessly clean - as were the shared bathrooms. We were welcomed warmly by both Lindsey and Michael who took good care of us throughout our stay. The B&B is centrally located...
