Irene's was a wonderful experience. It is in a great, very safe, location and there are several activities very close. Captain Apollos is a terrific host. He is very attentive to the needs of those staying at Irene's and quickly responds to any questions/communications.
The comments below reflect our experience!The apartment has an excellent location, accommodates three people, has good beds, decent space and a well equipped kitchen. There is a good grocery store nearby and a Walmart about 15 minutes walk.USPS deliver parcels without someone to receive.We recommend, for the most demanding of cleaning or allergies, to ask the Captain Apollo special attention in cleaning, so your stay will be perfect! Thank you,Apollo!
Thank you for staying with us. I would add that the modest $50 cleaning fee covers the laundry and making of the beds with fresh linens and towels. All cleaning is done by me and for such a large house it takes at least 3 hours to accomplish the minimal of cleaning all bathrooms, all kitchen details and the dusting, sweeping and mopping of all floors. We have an open check-in and check-out policy and quite often I have overlapping guests on several reservations. I am trying to point out that I am doing the best that I can and apologize if I overlook a few spots in order to accommodate our busy schedule.
The apartment was so good! Great location, walkable distance to the union station and most of the attractions in DC. Capt. Apollo was very nice and had quick response about our questions before arrival. We met upon arrival and he even showed us around the city. Thank you so much! We will definitely stay here again next time.
Captain Apollo is a great, attentive and responsible host. The studio is as described and is nice for short or long stays. Fully stocked kitchen, everything is working. A/C worked fine on hot summer days. Location is wonderful. Strolling to Eastern Market on weekends was fun. I would stay here again.
My stay in DC at this location was wonderful! Irene's location cannot be beat. It is a 10 minute walk to Union Station and only a 20 minute walk to the Capitol. The apartment itself has lots of room to spread out and the bed is SO comfortable! The bathroom is nice as well, though a little extra cleaning of it couldn't hurt. Overall, my experience here was very positive and I would recommend it to anyone wishing to visit DC!
Irene's is a great place to stay when in DC. It is close to all the major attractions and Capt Apollo gave us heaps of useful information on what to see and how to go about it. The neighborhood is pleasant and safe. The apartment itself is a little on the small side but otherwise great. We cook for ourselves and it had everything we could need. There is a medium sized supermarket close by which was veryy handy for us.
The studio was as described in the listing, nothing special to look at but the location is the best thing about this place! Just a short walk to the Metro, the Capital building and a grocery store. Nice neighborhood, parking can be a pain but fortunately Capt. Apollo furnished us with a permit, making it MUCH easier! He also brought us flowers to help doll up the space and some fresh fruit, very sweet gentleman, and very accommodating to our travel itinerary! Would stay again. Thanks so much!!
*Unfortunately while we were staying the apartment next door was having tile work done in the bathroom and there was an INSANE amount of noise from 8 am to 7 pm but that isn't Capt Apollo's fault. For other potential renters, this is an apartment building and folks can be loud in the hallway on occasion.

About the Host, Capt. Apollo
I started in 2009. Every guest has loved my places and their locations. We get people from all over the world and I love being special to them. I will welcome you on your arrival and give you a tour of the apartment to explain everything, then give you details on the neighborhood and the city. Whatever you want, I will do my best to get for you, before, during and after your stay. A new addition to my site is a retreat in exotic Thailand on a river outside the town of Chumphon plus additional houses in Bangkok, and Ranong.
