We rented this apartment for our recent site seeing trip to DC. It is very close to the U street metro station, so we were able to hop right on the subway to access many sites. It is also walking distance to fantastic restaurants on the U street corridor. There are grocery stores fairly close by as well.
The apartment itself is quite nice. It has a small living room with a fireplace and Dish for the T if you plan to stay in at all. We loved that it had a full kitchen and laundry room. We were able to grab a quick breakfast before hitting the sites each morning. It was great to be able to do laundry mid-trip. The only con - it is a basement apartment, so people walking above you in the early AM will likely wake you if you are a lighter sleeper. However, for us, it got us downtown earlier to see more amazing sites.
The owner was easy to contact and kept in regular communication with us as we needed. We have already recommended this property to some friends we made during our trip. We would stay here again for sure.
