This is a room in my condo. The building is situated in the heart of DC, a few blocks away from U street and a 20 minute walk to Dupont Circle, 10 minute walk to Columbia HIghts and 4 minute walk to the Metro.
The room gets lots of natural light and has a double bed with lots of storage space: two big closets and a dresser. I provide fresh linens and towels. Unfortunately, I can't provide breakfast but you are welcome to use the kitchen for your own cooking. There are three supermarkets within 5 minutes walk (an organic place, a Harry's Teeter and a Safeway - Whole Foods is a little further away).
There is Wi-fi that you can use and I will provide you with a map of DC.
The newly renovated Meridian Hill park is literally next door to the apartment building and there are lots of restaurants and cafes within a few blocks.
The apartment looks out into an internal garden where there are grills that you can use to cook your meals if you prefer.

Becasue of Sandy we had to spend a day insde with the lock down of the city. We felt and were warm, safe and comfortable. We appreicated Ruben's coffe machine! It was great to be able to have a nice hot bath as it howled outside.
Ruben was a great host and his apartment is top notch. He's very flexible and relaxed, but is also interesting and easy to talk to. The bedroom and seperate bathroom provides a lot of privacy and the whole place is immaculately clean.
The neighborhood is nice and it's a pretty quick walk to Adams Morgan, U Street or Colombia Heights about ten to fifteen minutes for each. I highly recommend Ruben's place for anyone wanting a comfortable and convenient stay in DC.
Ruben has a beautiful apartment, very quiet, within easy access to everything in DC....I agree with all the previous comments on this.
he is a charming multilingual businessman who goes out of his way to share travel stories and local information, and he is also very generous....even giving us free passes to galleries he knew we would like.
Ruben is very keen to get to know fellow travellers, and is delightful company...we would certainly recommend spending your time in DC at his place..
Was a very nice room in a lovely apartment. Ten minutes to the Metro, and walking distance to 14th/U Street and Dupont Circle. Ruben was a very good host, although I only saw him twice due to a combination of my flight being cancelled and his work schedule! However, I was made to feel very welcome. Thanks a lot, Ian.
This was my first airbnb experience, and it was a very positive one. The room and appartment are exactly as on the pictures. The bed was comfortable and the appartment is very clean. I could use the kitchen and the appliances.
Ruben is a very nice person, very hospitable. He gave me a lot of 'touristic' and practical advices. He is a pleasant person to be around, very calm, I felt completely comfortable at his place. We had some nice talks and I got to know him a little bit. He is a very interesting person with a wide area of interests. I would definitely highly recommend staying with Ruben in his appartment!
Wonderful Host in great area. Rubens place is in a Hip area that really gives you a great feel for what living in DC would be like.
As for Rubens place, the bed was comfortable and the place is immaculate. Cleaner than most the $290 hotel rooms around town.
Ruben himself is a great host, great for conversation, available yet keeps to himself. He couldn't have been more accommodating and next time I'm in town I'll book further in advance so that I can stay there again.
Ruben was an excellent host during my weekend in Washington and in his house. Very kind and helpful. I recomend him as host if you go to Washington. The house very clean and beautiful.
Ruben fue un excelente anfitrion durante mi estancia en Washingto y amable. Recomiendo su casa para alquilar la habitacion ofrece a todo aquel que viaje a esa bonita ciudad. La casa muy limpia y ordenada y con mucho detalle.
Ruben has a beautiful and very clean home. It is in a nice location with plenty of green space. Ruben was a nice guy and offered me helpful hints. I really enjoyed my stay.
I spent almost a full month with Ruben. The apartment is beautiful and immaculately clean. I was extremely comfortable in my private bedroom/bathroom. The neighborhood is also great with lots of restaurants and bars in the immediate area. It's about a 20 minute walk from Dupont Circle metro and a 5 minute walk from U-Street metro. Ruben is very nice. He is friendly and quiet without being overbearing. He travels a lot so there is a good chance you will have the apartment to yourself. I can't recommend Ruben and his apartment more highly and would certainly stay there again.
Great room in a great location. Just about 10 min away from metro station makes this location priceless. Everything was very clean and neat. No problems of any kind.
Ruben is a great host. He is very polite and accommodating. I would definitely choose this place again for any future trips to DC.
