We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was clean and comfortable and in a great location. Easy to get around and the local supermarket was just across the road. Adrienne communicated with us well during the booking and answered a query we had upon arrival super quick.
Adrienne was a nice and very communicative host which was appreciated. Her place is decent and the bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable. It's very conveniently located and affordable compared to hotels in that area of DC.
This was a lovely place!
Location - excellent, about 10 min walk to Chinatown, and 30 min walk to the Mall. Also 10 min walk to the nearest subway. We felt safe. Grocery store 50m away.
Host - Adreinne didn't meet us, but was easily contactable by phone and attended to all our questions. The place was easy to find.
Place - spacious, well furnished, all appliances worked. Perhaps a bit cold as there were only portable fan heaters. We had a car, and there is no street parking during the day, so we had to move the car around a bit.
Thanks for letting us stay!
People's Place was great and Adrienne was very helpful. We look forward to returning on our next trip to DC
People's Place was a great fit for what we needed. It's clean, comfy, and located right next to the convention centre. Would definitely stay there again.
The house was warm and inviting - the room heaters were left on and all the rooms were comfortably toasty. Everything was clean and in order. We felt right at home immediately. I was in town for a convention at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and I was literally 5 minutes away by foot. It was great to be able to go back to the house in between session and grab lunch or dinner! The neighborhood was quiet and safe. There were occasional sirens but that's normal for any big city. The house is incredibly comfortable - nice sofas, beds and a TV with cable. Crashing after a long day of professional duties at People's Place #1 felt great!
I only have a minor criticism - the internet signal strength is not the greatest as I could only connect to the internet from the living room. However, this is only a minor issue because at People's Place #1, internet is included!!
Overall, my party and I really enjoyed staying at People's Place #1. It was warm, clean, close to the convention center and inviting. The amenities (TV, Internet, kitchen) made our stay in DC that much better. Thank you!!
We (three scientists) stayed at "People's Place" for 5 nights whilst attending a conference at the Convention Center.
The apartment is perfectly located – a 5-minute walk to the Convention Center. There is also a well stocked Giant supermarket almost across the street – very convenient. And a 2-minute walk to a Starbucks just around the corner.
For sight-seeing, we walked everywhere – the White House, Capitol, National Mall, …In case you don’t want to walk, there is a metro station next to the Convention Center.
People Place is simple but also lovely – it’s an affordable and accessible place for everybody! And there is a washer and a dryer in the building you could use for free.
Adreinne wasn’t in Washington during our stay but she answered our emails immediately and was very helpful.
Of course there are also some downsides. As some other guests already mentioned, the apartment is really dark, there are only two windows. And one of the bedrooms has no window. The sleeping sofa in the living room is very uncomfortable. Some basics like a kettle or bedside lamps are missing. The WiFi only works in parts of the apartment, not in the second bedroom for example.
BUT: Overall, I would not mind staying here again. I can recommend People’s Place to everybody who’s not expecting luxury, but an affordable place to stay in the heart of Washington. Thanks Adreinne.
