About Karen Karabell

We are Karen Karabell & Rachel Presley, two sisters who manage historic properties exclusively in the City of St. Louis. We find great joy in showcasing our amazing city from the 'home bases' of our unique and lovely guest accommodations.

Why Karen Karabell chose St. Louis

This property was built more than 100 years ago by the Ullrich Family, who operated a bakery on the first floor and lived upstairs. The building is a classic example of Bavarian Revival architecture. We decided to open the Ullrich Suite to honor the family's enduring contribution to this corner of St. Louis (as well as to provide a great place for travelers to rest after they're done exploring).

What makes this apartment unique

Location, location, location! The Ullrich Suite is located in the heart of metropolitan St. Louis. From here it's easy to get anywhere in the city.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at the Ullrich Suite in June 2016 and loved it! Great place full of history. We loved the marble on the walls and that it used to be a bakery. Accommodations were clean and a great size for a family of 2-3. No problem getting street parking. We stayed one night and chose to eat and have a drink next door, which was convenient. No noise coming from the restaurant/bar at all could be heard.

I had an excellent rental experience at the Ulrich. The managers are so nice and do everything possible to make your stay the best. The kitchen is stocked with goodies, the unit is spotless and so tastefully decorated and the bed is very comfortable with luxury linens. This is one of my definite return to spots.

Wholehearted hospitality!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Whenever I travel (VA, St. Louis, PA, NJ, NC, GA) I try to find something other than a hotel. My daughter has been in school at WASHU for the past 4 years and I have stayed in many of the buildings these two lovely women own or manage and this is my first review because I selfishly wanted to keep all their properties to myself. They are the best hostesses with truly comfortable, affordable, accommodations that they have put their heart into. I love old houses and most of these apartments are in old/historic buildings. A place has to be clean -- and I mean immaculate for me- and the bed comfortable for me to give it 5 stars. These all are. Here are my insights on the locations I have stayed in alone, with my husband, sometimes with my daughter, too.

Ulrich - awesome amazing space with a kitchen to cook and host our lasagna party of 12. The bed is in the middle of the humongous studio, which is a little odd, but separated nicely -- I had the best sleep of my life on that bed!!

Anna's retreat - upstairs, smaller, just great!

The Elves - an entire house that creates a magical mystical experience. I want to buy it!! I have been maybe 5 times!! I have hosted many dinners for my daughter and her friends, who have gone in the hot tub afterwards. We barbecued here on the deck for graduation weekend with my father. It is my home away from home.... I will miss it.

Jessie Benton-- great cute adorable one bedroom, it is on a corner so there is traffic noise but the bedroom is an interior room and super quiet. Again hosted pizza party here for six!! Feels like home.

The Abbey - loved being here for two weeks. It faces two busy streets so there is traffic noise, but there are units on the backside of the building, too. Super cute and affordable. I walked out the door onto the SLU campus.

The Bennett-super affordable, cute and very quiet. The location is the best in St. Louis in my opinion because you walk out your door to Left Bank Books and the Central West End. Super fun and the closest of all the apartments to Washu, although most are not far. Huge windows behind lovely curtains that do not really look out to anything but a small industrial type courtyard but as a result the apt is very quiet.

You can't go wrong with Karen and Rachel!!!! Don't hesitate!!

We had a great time in St. Louis visiting our daughter and staying in the Ullrich Suite. We have stayed in SF Shannon's other properties and they are always clean, well-maintenance, and the managers are very responsive. They provided fresh coffee and other snacks and treats. We love to walk in Tower Grove Park and enjoy the restaurants in nearby Lafayette Square.

Our stay could not have been any more enjoyable. The location is excellent - close to everything - the Hill, Botanical Garden, downtown, Soulard, etc.. The neighborhood restaurants & coffee shop were unique and outstanding. Karen provided everything we needed for a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

This apartment was a wonderful place for my husband and I to stay for a night in STL from KC. We loved the beautiful woodwork and spacious living and kitchen area. The little touches like the popcorn, chocolate, coffee, beer in the fridge and excellent soap and lotion were added bonuses. We walked to the restaurant and shopping area easily. The Shaved Duck around the corner is a must visit!
