Perfect location for this cozy loft!

  • 5 of 5

The loft is located in a great spot in downtown Portland, perfect for those who really want to experience city life. There are great views of the city in two directions through the many windows. The proximity of the streetcar makes it easy to zip in different directions--you can be at Powell's famous bookstore in just a few minutes or head to the waterfront in just as short a time. Everything is close by.

The loft is equipped with a wood-burning fireplace that heats the place up fast and makes for a wonderful atmosphere, especially when it's raining outside. The claw-foot bathtub was deep and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to make a full course meal, but with so many unique restaurants nearby I rarely ate indoors. This place was a true gem and I enjoyed my stay very much!

Small, but comfortable. Good location.

  • 4 of 5

It's a nice little loft. Definitely a good and walkable downtown location. If you come to Portland without a car, you will get along fine, but if you bring your car, know that you will have to find your own parking. There's a lot across the street that is easy to use for overnight parking. Also, it probably won't make a difference if you aren't coming to town during an August heat wave, but the air conditioning unit could get the loft close to comfortable, but still on the warm side for my husband. And the washer is great, but without a dryer, laundry was hard.

Okay place, clean.

  • 3 of 5

Pros: downtown location, comfortable bed, near food store, apartment gets good natural light; iron and ironing board; blow dryer, washing machine; across the street from a metered parking lot.

Cons: not comfortable for eating in the kitchen as stools are too tall for counter; dryer is in the basement and requires coins; the tub/shower is uncomfortable to use; there is no dresser to put your clothes in, so you must use your suitcase.

Habitable, pretty comfortable.

  • 3 of 5

Nice floors, stove, good space for 1 or 2 people, but too cozy for 3. Hallways smell funny. Floors were really creaky. Fridge is nice and ceiling light in "living room" area doesn't work. Nice to have kitchen utensils available. Not bad.

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

This is a great flat in the heart of Portland. We were there for the marathon. We were able to walk everywhere even with the slight rain. Slept three comfortably. Everything was in working order, clean, and as Shawn described. Our 8 year old son loved the old school elevator in the building. Close to grocery, restaurants, and food truck row. Walking distance from the art museum. Great property.
