Hill East Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Located at Eastern Market, this condo is close stroll to the US Capitol, US Senate, The National Mall, Washington Monument, The White House, Union Station and downtown DC.

This one bedroom, 1 bathroom condo with extra sleeping area in the living room (pull down sofa), offers accommodation for one person or family of four. Located in the safest neighborhood of Washington DC, Capitol Hill - Historic District, located within walking distance to the National Mall as well as Eastern Market, local landmark. There are numerous grocery stores, restaurants and high end shopping areas within walking distance.

Capitol Hill Historic District takes its name from the hill, which rises in the center of the Federal City and extends eastward. Stretching easterly behind the Capitol Building along wide avenues lies the residential area known as Capitol Hill. Capitol Hill, one of the oldest residential communities in Washington, has grown from a small boarding house community for members of Congress to an area of more than 150 squares embracing a number of separate neighborhoods.

In the early years of the Republic few Congressmen wished to establish permanent residence in the city. Instead, most preferred to live in boarding houses within walking distance of the Capitol. Nothing remains of this community, and the area closest to the Capitol contains the Library of Congress, the Supreme Court, and the House and Senate Office buildings.

Capitol Hill is the largest residential historic district in the District of Columbia. Almost every street is composed of row houses of different stylistic varieties and periods forming a continuous wall broken only by street intersections. Side by side exist early 19th century manor houses, Federal townhouses, small frame dwellings, ornate Italianate bracketed houses and the late 19th century press brick row houses with their often whimsical decorative elements combining Richardsonian Romanesque, Queen Anne, and Eastlakian motifs.

Within the Historic District, you will find the most luxurious accommodation in the one of the best areas in Washington DC with many restaurants, cafes and places to shop, including the Eastern Market, the city's largest farmers' market and flea market.

This elegantly furnished one bedroom apartment approximately 1000 sq feet with one bathroom and fully equipped kitchen with a small backyard seating area, provides great hotel alternative within walking distance to US Capitol, US Senate, Eastern Market, Union Station and the National Mall.

You will find sleeping for up to four people and enough room to host the entire family, outdoor deck and living room with an eat in kitchen.

Our location is ideal for touring around DC and we are looking forward to hosting you in DC. We are local, so if you have any questions or special request, don't hesitate to e-mail us!

About Jarek Mika

We are family owned and operated. From the left meet Kate, Jarek (sister and brother) and our mom Dana.

We have lived in Washington for over ten years and love this cosmopolitan city where people get up every morning and get to work on changing the world. The most powerful people in DC can alter the course of history and try to make the world a better place. It's a city where philosophical debate and advocacy of issues beyond one's own family or pocketbook rule the day; a city where what's going on in one's head is far more important than what one is wearing; a city where people come from all over the world to experience democracy and learn the principles of our free society.

We get visitors from all over the country and the world. Some come for one time visit with their family, others keep coming back number of times a year as we host many repeat guests related to the federal government, foreign embassies and the US State Department. We take great pride in having our unit very clean (our mom cleans it, so you know it’s spotless), conveniently located within walking distance to all shopping, restaurants and Metro.

We want you to enjoy your visit whether it is once in a lifetime trip with your family or monthly visit for work. We are looking forward to hosting you in DC and if there is something we can help with, let us know.

Great location, good price, nice place, some improvements needed

  • 4 of 5

Visited family in DC and stayed for 5 days. Location had great access to Union Station, Eastern Market, the Capital. Price was reasonable for the DC area. Space comfortable for 2 people, fairly quiet, bed was comfortable. Some TLC needed, especially in the small bath (mold on bottom of shower curtain, missing towel bar, missing mirror on medicine cabinet). Would stay there again if occasion arose.

Great place to spend an entire month...

  • 5 of 5

All that was advertised was provided, great neighbor, great patio, and place was very clean. A couple of suggestions; shower needs new curtain and kitchen cooking pans need to be updated (everything sticks to them).

Place is highly recommended. Would definitely stay there again.

Great property and very conveniently located.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our week in the DC area. The place is very well decorated and comfortable. The location is within walking distance to the Capital and the National Mall. The bed room and kitchen are very nice. The bathroom is a little small, but not too bad. I would recommend the property if you are looking for a comfortable and well located property. The owners were great and responded quickly to our question.

GREAT location and owner communication

  • 5 of 5

Owner was great in providing information and communicating information in a timely manner prior to our stay. They also responded quickly while we were in town. Townhouse was great for our needs in a cute, safe neighborhood with neighborhood groceries and coffeehouses. Would stay here again while in DC!

Great location, upkeep needed

  • 3 of 5

This place is in a wonderful location in Capitol Hill. The neighborhood is convenient and close to many amenities while still having a more relaxed feel. There is a bus line that takes one to the heart of the city and is very convenient. There are multiple drawbacks, however, with the apartment. Many stem from a lack of general maintenance of the place: crumbling wood from dry rot, deferred cleaning of the backyard and patio space, mice in the walls, neglected overflowing trash bins...There were also other issues with staying in this unit that made it inconvenient, such as thin walls and neighbors with screaming kids that woke me up on numerous occasions, the lack of access to a thermostat to control heat, and the over abundance of pointless furniture that clusters the space and makes it feel much smaller. I stayed here for over a month so many of these issues may not bother one with a short stay. For those who plan to spend minimal time in the apartment this place will do fine.
