Allen's place in Adam's Morgan was great for our stay in DC. The basement apartment is extremely well located, a few minutes from bus and metro lines (15 min walk to Red Line @ Dupont Circle) as well as from multiple ZipCar parking lots. We used this central location as a very convenient starting point for our trips inside and outside of the city. There is a large number of restaurants (fast food to gourmet) within a couple of minutes walk from the apartment, so finding the right eating / dining situation was easy and convenient. A full-size supermarket (Harris-Teeter) is also about 5 minutes away on foot and offers a great choice of all types of packaged and prepared foods. The basement is very practical, with one master bedroom, a bathroom, an adequately equipped kitchen, a dining area and a living room with a convertible sofa bed. Importantly for families, there is a washer / dryer combo in the apartment. Also, the air conditioning system works well and the apartment offers a nice respite from the outside heat and humidity. Allen provided us with an inflatable bed + linens for the fourth member of our party and was very responsive to a couple of request we made on arrival. We would stay at Allen's basement apartment again.
