Sleek Urban Ballard studio w/ patio & fireplace - walk to Golden Gardens Park!

Welcome to the Ballard studio! This sleek urban lower level studio has an open, bright and airy space and is located near golden gardens park.. On a quiet residential street with spectacular beach and waterfront sunsets.

The beautiful hardwood floors give this apartment a warm, welcoming feel, and the stone fireplace provides plenty of old Seattle charm.

The location of the studio perfect to explore and walk around the quaint yet bustling Ballard neighborhood. It also offers easy access to a quick bus ride or rideshare (Lyft or Uber) to downtown Seattle. Nearby is Lucky Santo, La Copa Cafe and Soprano’s Pizza and Pasta.

After your time at the Locks, be sure to stop by Red Mill Totem House for Seattle’s Best Hamburger, voted by Seattleites themselves.

Just two miles on Market St and Ballard Ave is the neighborhood shopping district, with unique boutiques, consignment and antique stores, local breweries, delicious restaurants, the Majestic Bay Movie Theater and intriguing local artwork.

We were in town for a short business trip and didn't want to stay in a hotel during COVID, so we booked this place for one night. Process was super easy, and just what we needed. We loved the location as it is walkable to Golden Gardens (down a lot of stairs- 10 mins) and has a good coffee shop a few blocks away (mandatory) and was out of the hubbub of the city. The actual space worked fine for a short stay, full kitchen, comfortable couch and chair and workspaces, bathroom was fine and the place was clean upon arrival. Smelled like a wood fire but we opened up windows and it was fine by the time we returned from our walk. The bed was okay for us, but the one thing I would say is if you are a light sleeper this may not be the place for you (fridge cycling loudly through the night, little feet running around at 6am upstairs, cars buzzing by). Not awful, just noteworthy.

I really enjoyed my time here. It’s very quiet and centrally located. The studio is very clean and has everything needed for a relaxing stay. I’ll definitely book a stay at the Ballard Studio on a future trip to Seattle!

Well appointed, cozy, comfortable, modern, lots of natural light, convenient, in a residential neighborhood but within a short drive to lots of things...would definitely stay here again.

Very comfortable Queen bed with soft sheets. Bathroom clean with fluffy towels. Nice kitchen for cooking and parking right outside. I gave it 4 stars only because you should be aware there is no TV or radio. I streamed stuff on my iPad
