Apartment - Private room · Cathedral Ave, Washington, DC 20016, United States

A bright double room near the Cathedral. I am sorry the pictures are out of date. The furniture has been moved and some moved out. It is still lovely! It is very central and has a 24 hour desk and an outdoor pool.

Your host, Philippa

The Space

bright room near the Cathedral DC

This is a bright double room in a two bedroom apartment in a central location. It is peaceful here, and you can see the red cardinals in the tree outside the window if you are lucky. There is a walk in wardrobe, and wireless internet. It is only a short walk from supermarkets and shops and of course the Cathedral, with a good bus service. the kitchen has everything you need and the bathroom would be shared with one person. There is a friendly 24 hour desk. You walk in on the ground floor, but the windows look out from the fifth floor. It is a very nice building with pleasant people living here. Do let me know if you have any questions.

Guest Access

Pool and desk. Laundry room.

Interaction with Guests

I shall be staying in the second bedroom. Right the other side of the apartment. I shall be around if needed, or working in my room. I like to have company, but I am often very busy. I sort of adapt to whoever I am sharing with. It is fun.

Getting around

A bus stop outside the building. I drive mostly. For a short stay, free guest parking is available. For the energetic, Borisbikes are around the corner.
The least expensive way to arrive from the airport is by Blue Van. This takes a bit longer, but can be interesting. Otherwise there are cabs, Washington Flyers and such, which will tell you their fares. The airports are very well organized. I can give you the number of a good reliable limo service if you would like it..

  • Philippa is a wonderful host, incredibly accommodating and communicative. She offered ample support and explanation and was quick with emails and information even though she is in Africa. I would highly recommend her as a host and her space as an excellent place to stay in DC. The staff at her building are amazing and the location is fantastic for any Uptown NW activities, easily accessible to public transportation, and cab fares in DC are relatively reasonable (as compared to other large cities). The small sunny room I stayed in was a great place for a 5 day stay-mirrors, comfy bed, desk, everything you need. There is access to laundry and a kitchen. It was just swell. I hope to go back!

  • The apartment has a very nice location, and Philippa was helpful in arranging everything. Carmen did a great job in keeping the apartment clean, and I enjoyed my stay there very much.

  • This was my second time at Phillipa´s. Again, i would have no doubt in recommending her appartment in Washington DC. When I left, she was renovating guest´s room: new bed, wall painted, shelves installed. Enjoy!

  • A very nice place to stay. Philippa, although I never meet her in person, is a very caring host and always helpful. The communication was flawless and prompt. Henry is a very personable chap and I enjoyed the conversations we had. The room is very homey, the neighborhood just great. Thanks!

English, grandmother, I have travelled quite a lot. I love being in different countries, as long as they are warm!. I enjoy preparing a clean comfortable flat with plenty of empty cupboards, as I would like to find things myself. Nowadays I like to travel by sea so it is a challenge getting to where I would like to go. But that is the fun of it!
