A Capitol Place apartment, can be rented as a long term rental, when available.

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.

Comfortable, quiet and roomy stay in Washington

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here for a few days over the Christmas holidays. It was a warm, welcoming, quiet and comfortable stay. It is an older property, though well kept up, but there are some small quirks - heat, light switches and keys all took a bit of figuring out.

Great place for cooking!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Thanksgiving - and I was responsible for several meals and parts of meals while in DC. The kitchen was sufficiently equipped for all my recipes - it was so helpful to have the kitchen so well stocked with cooking tools.

The property is a great location for us - near our daughter and also many of our favorite places - Eastern Market, Lincoln Park, and several restaurants on 8th Street. The property managers are great to work with - no problems with security or parking (we did already have a parking permit from our daughter.) I would highly recommend this convenient Capitol Hill property!

Family Spring Vacation in DC

  • 4 of 5

Great location - 15 minute walk to the Capitol, close to the Metro stop, and Lincoln Park. Much more city ambiance than staying at a hotel.

Quiet residential location with good access to city

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a week as part of a longer holiday - self, wife & adult daughter. We had previously been staying in hotels and this was planned as a bit of a change as we were in DC for a full week. Firstly the booking process and all the instructions on accessing the property were clear and easy to follow. The apartment is in a basement so there is not much natural light. But it is well equipped and maintained, including the kitchen (which we didn't use to its full capabilities). One unexpected omission was that there were no laundry facilities in the apartment, but we found a coin operated laundry two blocks away, so all was well. Bus stops and Eastern Market metro station are within easy walking distance - wouldn't recommend a car as parking is limited and expensive. It's in a fairly quiet residential area. Supermarket, pharmacy and quite a few restaurants are all available within walking distance but not immediately obvious (Google map search helped here!). Would be happy to stay here again if visiting DC.

Old World Hideaway

  • 4 of 5

Very quaint basement apartment full of victorian charm, with all the modern facilities you need for your comfort. Lots of info around the place for tourists, short walk to Eastern Market for bars, restaurant and the metro. Great neighbourhood, very safe and clean. Be aware you're in the basement so you will hear the people upstairs if it's also occupied.
