How we got started
Once upon a time there were traveling technology professionals who spent many many (far too many) nights away from home in hotel rooms. The hotel rooms were small and expensive, with a tiny fridge and cheap coffee maker as the only in-room amenity. They thought to themselves “there must be a better way.” So they created Barsala.
Barsala was created by travelers for travelers. None of the founders came from the hotel industry but they understood technology and travel. They also observed that many spaces in upscale apartment buildings sat empty for months, or even years, especially when the buildings were new. So they threw out the old-school hotel playbook and built something completely different.
Since it’s Seattle founding in 2016, Barsala quickly expanded across the United States. We are proud to have hosted over 50,000 guests to date. We look forward to welcoming you and invite you to be part of our story.
