The spacious basement in my Capitol Hill row house is the perfect place to stay while visiting DC!
With a separate entrance, a private bathroom, and an interior door that separates the basement from the 1st and 2nd floors, this bedroom includes a full-sized bed, a wardrobe, and a small seating area.
Bedding, towels, and various toiletries (shampoo, soap, etc.) are provided.
Guests have their own bathroom in the basement as well as a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, TV, DVD player, and iPod dock. The bedroom also includes Wi-Fi, heating/AC, and a laundry area.
Guests are welcome to use the kitchen, which is on the 1st floor of the house. The kitchen has new appliances and is well-stocked with lots of cooking supplies, spices, etc.
My house is a 105-year-old row house in an ideal location, just half a block from the historic Eastern Market. In addition to its proximity to the Market and to the restaurants and bars on Barracks Row, it's within half a mile to the Capitol building, the Library of Congress, and the Folger Shakespeare Library.
This fabulous row house is 6 blocks from 295 and I-395, about one mile from Union Station, 1.5 miles from Nationals Stadium, and 4 1/2 miles from Reagan Airport. In addition, the Eastern Market Metro plaza features Capital Bike Share, so it's easy to bike around town.

Ellen was lovely. The room was very clean and comfortable. Ellen stocked the fridge with yogurts and beverages. The location can't be beat, there were plenty of restaurants and shops around. I was able to malk to the national mall and museums easily and when I got tired a cab ride was less than $10 each time.
This was the first time I used the Airbnb website to find a place but so glad that I chose Ellen's pad for my last two nights in DC!! It had everything I needed - a very comfy bed, excellent location, spotless decor etc. Can't recommend highly enough if you simply want somewhere both comfortable and central!! Would love to go back with my wife in the future!!
Spotless, exactly as pictured. Provided an unexpected and much appreciated basket of treats & breakfast foods. Ellen was responsive and flexible. It was like having my own place just a mile walk from work. Thanks for making a business trip a pleasure.
I had great time staying with Elllen, probably the best I have using this service. He place in large and comfortable and is located within walking distance to all the major sights!!!
Ellen went out of her way to issue that my stay with her went well. I would recommend staying with Ellen to anyone.
My stay in Ellen's place was just lovely! She was very helpful with pre- arrival, and made sure I got into the house. Her basement was quite charming, and the location was really good since it's near the metro, good restaurants, Eastern Market, and the Capitol/ Library of Congress. The room was spotless, there were essential pieces of furniture, and Ellen was kind enough to leave some breakfast snacks. She was also very understanding with check-in/ check- out. Overall, highly recommended. I'd love to stay at her place again next time I'm in DC. :)
Great location to discover Washington DC, 10 minutes walk to the capitol. Also Close to many restaurants, bus stop and subwaystation. The room is clean, comfortable and very silent. Ellen was very helpful and always there when I needed help with something. Def a good place to book!
Ellen's apartment is excellent in all respects. The separate entrance and bathroom make it a superior place to stay. It is a short walk to the capitol and even closer to the Eastern Market and Metro…great restaurants right around the corner on Pennsylvania. Ellen is an excellent hostess who obviously cares that her guests have a
great visit to DC. Spacious, clean and stocked with coffee, snacks, breakfast foods and other extras. I was there a full week, and took advantage of the washer/dryer. I am looking forward to returning in the Spring, and will definitely plan to stay here again.
Ellen was very friendly and responsive in her communication. The apartment was really clean and had lots of nice touches like tourist info, toiletries and snacks. We really liked the location because of 1) the nice cafes and restaurants around 2) We were close enough to walk to most of the monuments/museums around Capitol hill. We would definitely come back and recommend this place to others.
It was beautiful! Ellen is a very lovely, friendly and helpful host. She brought a tasty breakfast for us, cause we don´t like cerials, and a lot of coffee for us!
She excused herself for the shutdown of the gouverment. But we saw a lot before. She always had new and very good ideas for our trips, for example the Easter Market.
We like Ellen very well. When we visit Washington again, we hope staying at Ellen´s home. again Thank you, Ellen!
This is a great apartment in a great location. It has everything you need. We had a great time staying here and Ellen, the host, is very gracious and helpful. I would definitely stay here again!
