In D.C. for a weekend with my two sisters, we found the apartment clean, comfortable, with all the amenities we could need. We also liked the location, with close access to stores and the Metro, but the feel of a neighborhood. The large beds in the bedrooms were very comfortable and the rooms were well-lit.
For us this was not a problem, but I think future renters may want to know that the layout of the apartment was unusual. The master bedroom has a large desk that we had to maneuver around each time we entered the apartment (the master bedroom is the first room you walk into). Also the upstairs bedroom and den are joined by an open door so there is no privacy between the two rooms. The stairs to the second floor are very steep and narrow. There is no living room.
Overall, we had a wonderful weekend. I enjoyed walking two blocks to a coffee shop on 11th St in the mornings. We used the metro and the share bike program, and walked a lot. We enjoyed walking over to visit Howard University and also over to Connecticut Ave for dinner. It felt like we were close to everything. I would definitely consider renting this apartment again.
Tourists without a Car,
Owner's Response: I appreciate the feedback. Just so that my valued travelers know; we have re-configured the layout of the master bedroom and the desk is no longer in the way. I believe the revised layout will be much more comfortable and that the guest will appreciate the new layout.
