My husband, two daughters (8 & 10) and I stayed here for 5 nights. The apartment was just as advertised. Very clean and spacious. The kitchen was well stocked. We only ate a couple meals there, but it was nice to have the option. The linens and towels were high quality, and everything was in working order. The owners provided a nice guide with recommendations for restaurants and things to see, and there was a bin full of pamphlets for sightseeing and maps. We highly recommend The Heights for brunch and dinner and the Coffy Cafe for excellent crepes.
We stayed at this apartment for 7 nights as we were in town for a funeral and it was perfect for our family. We were able to have ample space for the kids to play and unwind and the kitchen was great for making small meals. The stairs were a hurdle for older family but it was manageable. Overall a great place and would highly recommend.
My family of five spent our trip to Washington DC trip here. Overall, loved the apartment and the location.
The apartment is located in very nice historic building on the top floor, so it is very quiet either from the neighbors or the street.
It is very close to Metro, which is only a few stops from the Mall. We have done a lot of walking on the Mall, so being close to the Metro saved us a lot of energy.
There are many restaurants within one to two blocks of the apartment as well Target, Giant and Best Buy (which came in handy as my daughter forgot her phone charger).
Absolutely recommend this apartment. When staying here, try Maple on 11th Street - great wine bar/restaurant, nice for romantic dinner. We also went to Meridian Pint for a game night, great vibe.
Great experience when staying here.
My husband and I stayed here 9 nights as we toured DC. It became just like home. It's a quick walk (2-3 short blocks) to the metro and lots of good places to eat along the way: Sticky Fingers bakery, The Heights Cafe, Tex Mex and a locally owned El Savadorian cafe as well as others. We loved having the Giant grocery on the way to the Metro. We stopped by most evenings on our way home for something! We felt safe the entire time but as in all downtowns--we kept a watchful eye. There were a few rough houses here and there along the way but lots of people generally walking around and was not a problem.
We are still giving it a 5 although it had not been cleaned when we got there at the 3pm check-in time. Not a real big deal as we took a walk around the area. When we got back at 5--it was sparkling. (It may help to give them a heads up as to what time you are arriving on the day before.) Would we stay here again? Absolutely! Well-priced, comfortable and ideally situated.
Neighborhood was good. Close to the metro and grocery store, restaurants, etc. We were able to stay on budget by eating breakfast in the apartment every day. (We stayed 7 days.) The building itself was maintained nicely even though I'm sure it must be pretty old. The week we were there the temps were in the. 80's and 90's, so it really brought that old musty smell out of the carpeting in the hallways. The apartment was nice and has been updated sometime in the last 5 years or so. Beds were comfortable but there wasn't an extra blanket in the place. Good thing it was warmer than usual and my kids were comfortable sleeping with just sheets on the sofa bed.
Also, the bathtubs in both bathrooms were a little yucky. I'm sure they were clean but the porcelain is worn down from age and should be reglazed. There was mold growing in some of the shower tiles and around the soap dish.
The sectional couch in the living room was comfortable but grubby looking.
Overall, our experience was a good one and we would definitely stay there again as it is less expensive than renting 2 fairly nice hotel rooms with the same kinds of amenities and good location. The apartment was overall a good value, but a little more attention to details and cleanliness would have made it excellent.
When we arrived at 5pm they were in the early stages of cleaning the apartment. Check in was supposed to be 3. Not a great way to start. We left our luggage in the apartment and went off to to explore. We were hopeful that when we returned the apartment would be thoroughly clean. It was not. The kitchen was filthy, the refrigerator wasn't plugged in and smelled horrible. The dishes that were in the cup boards were gross. The rest of the apartment was worn and not very clean. We stayed for three nights with our three kids. It was a sight seeing vacation and we did not plan to stay in the apartment very much. It was simply a place to sleep. It was OK for sleeping, but not much else.
