A Capitol Place is a privately entranced, completely renovated five-room apartment. It is the entire lower level of our renovated century old Victorian town house located in the historic district of Capitol Hill, in a well established and friendly neighborhood just off Lincoln Park. It is within easy walking distance of the US Capitol, Library of Congress, Supreme Court, Congressional Buildings, the Eastern Market and Union Station Metrorail (subway) stops and attractions, and it is one block from the City Bus lines. From the Capitol, it is about a ten to fifteen minutes walk to reach the Smithsonian Mall and its Museums. The apartment's downtown neighborhood location, convenient to the monuments, memorials, and museums, as well as to government and business, is equally appealing to the tourist and to the business traveler.

The historic neighborhood is home to Eastern Market, which is a landmark in itself and has been operating for over 100 years. There are second and third generation family operated open food stalls inside and on the weekends it has an outdoor flea and antique market, a farmers market, and an arts and crafts market. Capitol Hill with its town homes with flower filled front yards, and its tree-lined streets with interesting and unique shops and neighborhood cafe and restaurants, offers a friendly, small town flavor and atmosphere, yet it is right in the heart of downtown, Washington, DC.

Most satisfactory!

  • 5 of 5

I was in DC with college students on a field trip and the house was perfect for us. The house was well represented by the photos and most delightful. The location is an easy enough walk to the subway and grocery store. It wasn't real clean when we got there, but I contacted the owner and he took care of it immediately. Definitely recommend.

Good potential in a great location, but...

  • 2 of 5

This rental is situated well for walking to Capital Hill, grocery, a park and light shopping as well as the Metro. Although clean, this basement unit suffered from deferred maintenance including dead smoke detectors, broken blinds and finicky locks and keys... among other items.

The porch floor drain plugged resulting in skanky mosquito larvae infested water entering the unit during a heavy rain.

With limited resources we used bath towels, including our beach towels, to block water and mop up the mess. The hosts picked it all up while we were out for the day and replaced the bath towels, but we never saw our beach towels again.

Regarding the flooding, responses from the hosts was not timely and then only by email, as they never answer the phone or reply to text messages. Same with smoke detectors. Sometimes, they just don't reply at all.

The smoke detectors were *replaced* 3 days after they was made aware. It was more than a dead battery in the antiquated detectors. 2 nights without smoke detectors created a bit of anxiety given the obvious quirky wiring and loose, equally antiquated electrical outlets in the unit.

The kitchen is functional but for the lack pantry space. The cupboards and cabinets are consumed mostly by cooking, baking, small appliances and place settings for a big bunch of folks. The full sized refrigerator was clean and a big plus.

Enough said? I won't comment about the sliding toilet seat or inoperative porch light.

With a small investment of time, upkeep and a few bucks, the hosts might be able to rent this to me again, but only if they replied to inquiries sooner than a couple days, and then only if they return our beach towels. Their selections for mattresses and pillows are superb!

  • 3 of 5

Overall stay was great.The only reason the three star rating was because the last three days and nights People showed up with children upstairs that ran and jumped continuously.They also screamed quite often.The parents had no control over them whatsoever. The first night it lasted till 11:30 pm.

There were four of us (2 adults and 2 teenage boys) in DC for the March for Science. The apartment was a great "base of operations " for us. Thankful to have found it.
