NEWLY RENOVATED APARTMENT NEAR CONVENTION CENTER AND U STREET CORRIDOR

Downtown - Washington DC Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Junior 1 Bedroom Apt / Sleeps 3

Newly renovated, junior 1 bedroom English basement apartment, with 4 full-size windows, offers plenty of natural light. Sleeps 3 adults with a queen bed and twin sofa bed. You'll have a comfortable night's sleep with 500 thread count sheets and tempurpedic pillows. Full bathroom with bathtub and shower. Washer and dryer in unit. Full-size kitchen appliances include refrigerator, stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and iron. Kitchen has granite countertops and is fully furnished with plates, glasses, cookware, utensils, etc. The apartment has all the conveniences of home. For travelers with small children, a highchair and Pack n' Play are available upon request.

The apartment is located just north of downtown, near 2 yellow/green line metro stops—just 3 blocks from Howard University/Shaw metro stop and 4 blocks from the Mt Vernon/Convention Center metro stop. Reagan National Airport is also located on the yellow line, so the commute from the airport is very easy. Washington DC is a very walkable city with good public transportation. You won't need a car while you are here. If you are traveling with a car, there is plenty of street parking available. Street parking is locally zoned, but we will arrange for you to have a parking pass for a $25 fee.

We are walking distance to vibrant nightlife, like the U street corridor, Logan Circle and Chinatown/Gallery Place. Only 3 metro stops to the National Mall and all of the historic monuments. Lots of restaurants within walking distances. 

For extended stays, we will have the apartment cleaned weekly for an additional $50. Nightly rate does not include the Washington DC lodging tax of 14.5%.

We live upstairs and are happy to answer any questions or make recommendations. The apartment has a separate alley entrance, and you will have complete privacy.

About Greg Sitzmann

We moved to DC together in 2005, the year we were married. It was going to be a short-term stay, and here we are eight years later. We absolutely love our city.

Greg Sitzmann purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Greg Sitzmann chose Downtown - Washington DC

The nice thing about the English basement apartment is that it's only a couple steps below ground. So it really feels more like a first-floor space. The ceilings are high. And the four tall windows let in plenty of natural light.

What makes this apartment unique

Our neighborhood, Shaw, is also called Old City. It has a great neighborhood vibe. Subway stops are convenient. But if you like to walk, it's a beautiful city to see on foot.

Loved this place

  • 5 of 5
I loved the location and the owner was easy to deal with. Walls are thin but I am not a light sleeper so was fine. I thought there was a door on the room but it was not kinda of open but divided. I would stay here again if I did visit that location.

Clean, Convenient, Very Helpful Hosts

  • 4 of 5
Place was clean and well organized when we arrived. Not cluttered with nicknacks.
Comfortable space for three family members, we stayed for over 3 weeks.
Quiet location (which is not that common in D.C.). I liked the private access from the alley way.
Hosts were great. When we needed to have a package dropped off/stored in advance of our arrival (and during the stay) they were really easy to reach and accommodating. When we needed a fixed Ethernet connection to the Internet, they were able to provide and it worked without interruptions.

Storage in the entry way was useful.

Convenient to walk to the Giant grocery store, the 70 bus and both Shaw and Mt. Vernon metro stations.

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed the apartment very much. It is comfortable and had everything we needed. The grocery store and the Metro train station are only a few blocks away. We took the train everywhere and we were able to see everything we wanted to see in DC (some of them more than once). We learned how to navigate the Metro lines and loved the convenience of not having to rent a car. The owners were wonderful and easy to contact. I recommend this property if you would like to explore DC via subway, bicycle and/or on foot.

should improve with practice

  • 2 of 5
Vacation rentals are my favorite thing and I was happy to find this clean little place at a reasonable price. Unfortunately, there was no information before or during my stay about internet access, local restaurants or how to use the washer or TV. The house is nice and has lots of character, as does the neighborhood, but footsteps on the ceiling are tough for light sleepers.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. While we do provide visitors with info on how to access the apartment's wifi, we need to do the same for the TV and washer/dryer. When visitors express an interest, we send them a PDF of neighborhood highlights that include restaurants, coffee shops, etc. That is info that we could easily add inside the apartment. These adjustments will add up to a nice improvement for visitors.

Clean & Quiet

Clean & Quiet
  • 4 of 5
I stayed only two nights there. Quiet street, safe to walk. Very clean room, fully equiped kitchen. The reason I take one star off is the room is a little cold for my parents and my baby. There was an heat/cool AC, but was not powerful enough to heat up the bedroom.
