Great Location But Too Much Noise

The apartment itself is wonderful: great amenities, friendly attentive staff, and amazing location. However, there is heavy 24hr construction operating across the street of the apartment building. I would not recommend this place until after all the construction is over and done with.

Expensive, but worth it

You're definitely getting what you pay for with the Olivian. The apartment finishings are really that of a high-end condo building, and the amount of storage each unit offers is incredible. The modern style allows for tons of natural light, and combined with the very high ceilings units feel spacious. Management does a good job with organizing social events to stimulate the community vibe, and in general the shared spaces are very nice.

Seattle Resident

The Olivian is a great place to live. I feel very safe living here and it is in close proximity to all downtown shopping and transit. They have nice finishes throughout the apartment. The staff is friendly and courteous, however the rent keeps rising, with no negotiation options.

Seattle Resident.

This is a very safe apartment building. The staff is friendly and courteous. The 24 hour concierge/security is good to have. They offer hot chocolate and coffee throughout the day. They have a great gym and I love living here. I think the rent is a high compared to other buildings and they won't negotiate.

Condo Environment in a Rental

While we were not thinking we wanted to live in downtown Seattle when we moved west, other units could not compete with the Olivian in terms of building and apartment quality. Our bathroom is the nicest I have ever seen in an apartment rental, and the amount of storage space through various closets and pantries is insane. Our one bedroom unit has 5 closets, one of which is walk in!!! We have also been so pleased with the way the Olivian takes care of us, too. The concierge know our names and apartment numbers, and any maintenance requests are handled incredibly quickly. We are almost never bothered by neighbor noise, which was something about which I was originally worried. Do I wish I was pay less in rent? Absolutely. Do I wish there was a grocery store nearby? Yup. But I recognize that this in terms of downtown apartment living, this is pretty much as good as it gets!

general

The Olivian is quite spectacular and the gothic-style architecture is stunning. With more than 20,000 square feet, it's the perfect place to throw epic parties. There are no nearby neighbors so we haven't had any issues with noise complaints. The mansion is metro-accessible so it's very easy to get around. It would be nice if there were nearby dining and nightlife options. While a little over-priced, the Olivian has been an excellent place to live.

Downtown Seattle Reviews

4 reviews
In the center of all of the Amazon buildings, so bars/restaurants/Whole Foods are full practically 24/7, but easy walk to the market, the stadiums, and convenient delivery services. I wouldn't recommend living here without a car.
This building is close to shopping and restaurants/ very safe area / there used to be minimum noise, however, there is construction of a building across the street, which is very noisy at night.
Pros: super close to offices if you work downtown. There are a lot of great restaurants in downtown, Belltown within walking distance. Grocery shopping is surprisingly easy with city Target and Kress nearby.

Cons: Lots of homeless people around. While most of them are harmless, occasionally one or two may try to pester you. Stay away from 3rd ave. Also - you are pretty much guaranteed to smell people smoking pot on the street if you walk around here. Some people on 3rd even look like they can sell you some. Well - it's legal, but still, not something I want my baby to get accustomed to...
New restaurants are also popping up like Skillet, Marination, Potbelly. Again, close to my work and the bus lines. Very close to Whole Foods too so that's convenient.
