A great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was a great apartment for me & my family when we went to visit our son in DC over the Easter holiday. It was nice because it was out of the actual DC area, but DC was still easily accessible by the train, car or a nice walk. Very comfortable beds and everything was nicely kept and clean. There are coffee shops and grocery/liquor stores that were easily accessible. We will most likely be staying here again when we go out to DC to see our son. Thank you for letting us rent your place.

Perfect place for touring D.C.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the 3 bdrm/2 bath apartment and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The apartment worked perfectly and we found everything we needed already provided in the apartment. Thank you for that!

The location was ideal with easy access to the Metro and the Front Desk Concierge was very helpful, providing us with much needed information.

Staying at the apartment really added to our DC experience. Thank you for helping us with the delivery of the needed stroller parts. You definitely went the extra mile and we appreciate it very much.

The only complaint we have is time went too quickly. We wish we could have stayed longer!

Perfect for 2 couples!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect! It was close to the Metro, easy to find, clean and welcoming. We saw other people in the hall, but never heard any neighbor sounds when we were in the apartment. For those who have more challenges walking, it was a uphill walk to the Metro. The arrangements all went according to plan. We would definitely stay there again!!

Amazing property, convenient to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression was the high-class area it is located in. The Arlington neighborhood is convenient, has tons of amenities. The apartment itself was clean and well-appointed. We felt like we were at home. The apartment was just two blocks from the VA Square Metro, a Starbucks, convenience store, grocery, restaurants, etc. We used the kitchen for most of our meals. Thanks to Zen for providing such a wonderful experience!

The location of this property is reason enough to are close to a variety of restaurants and public transportation. For anyone who wants to see Washington D.C., public transportation is a must! The apartment is spacious, clean and has a wonderful view of D.C. There are numerous amenities and the building personnel are very accommodating and friendly. Having a parking option is nice as well. Zen Hospitality was a great choice - I will definitely stay with them again!

Wow! What a great "Home away from Home"!

  • 5 of 5

We were delightfully surprised when we arrived at the beautiful apartment building in Ballston to check in for the Memorial Day weekend. We really liked the underground parking garage that was secured by a gate, needing a pass to enter. The apartment was very nice and extremely spacious. We had quite a large amount of luggage and it was very easy to get a cart, unload the car, and take the elevator up to the unit. That was a relief to us. It also had a terrific kitchen that was fully equipped with anything you might need, including starter packs of coffee and snacks. The location was wonderful. The view from the balcony was beautiful. Although we had a car, we barely needed it as we were so close to the Metro. There were plenty of restaurants and shopping venues in the area. The building staff was so friendly and helpful when we needed information. We will definitely return as we travel to Washington about 3 - 4 times a year. We will also recommend this to anyone that needs a great place to stay in Washington.
