Additionally, it is located in walking distance to The Yards Park and the National's Stadium. The Smithsonian and the most of the DC monuments are within 4-6 metro stops on the same metro line (blue and orange).

We also have multiple zip cars with in a 1-2 block radius. The Yards Park is a great place to play and picnic and is not well known among tourists. It hosts weekly outdoor movies (on Thursdays) in the summer and weekly (on Fridays) live music events from May - August. Eastern Market is a famous institution. It is open 6 days a week as a historic market that hosts a baker, a fishmonger, a butcher, a florist, a grocer among other shops, but on the weekends, it hosts an outdoor farmers market, a huge flea market, and an artist's market - an amazing place to explore, people watch, and venue to discover great finds, great foods, and great non-traditional souvenirs and gifts. We are also within biking, jogging, metro, or walking distance from the award winning Results Gym, Capitol Hill that is in a converted historic school. If you want to keep your workout routine while on vacation or on an extended stay, access can be arranged at cost. Each day visit there is $15. The gym has multiple classes, award winning locker rooms with dry and wet sauna and jacuzzi, a rock-climbing wall, extensive free weights and machines, and basket ball and racket ball courts.
Disclosure: A family lives in the unit above and though well insulated, some noise is audible between floors (not voices or music but heavy footsteps). Metro access is so easy, Regan International Airport - a fast cab ride or metro ride away, but parking is contentious. Off street parking can be arranged at no additional cost. We are perfectly located for a unique and fun visit to our nation's capital!

This apartment was exactly as advertised. It was warm attractive comfortable and served our purpose well. Desiree was so very helpful to us and assisted us when evolved we required it. A great place to stay and close to the subway.
The apartment is very pleasant, clean, comfortable and wonderfully convenient to the Metro. The host was very responsive to our needs, even acquiring a DVD player at our request.
We absolutely loved our stay at Apt on the Hill. We stayed in early Jan 14, and were so close to the metro for all the museums, memorials, galleries and great places to eat and drink. The apt was exactly like the photo, very quiet and warm, and Desiree was prompt to reply to all our questions and very friendly and welcoming overall. We would happily stay here again!!!
Desiree has a lovely basement apt. that is perfectly located to enjoy most of the typical tourist attractions.
- Great Location
- Beautiful apt.
- Desiree is a lovely host.
- She has construction going on in the apt above that can be very loud and even was going on at 9pm on a Sunday evening.
The apartment was lovely. Clean, modern and stylish. Kitchen fully equipped, heating excellent. Good supermarket just around the corner and close to restaurants.
Despite a couple of hiccups beyond her control, Desiree took great pains to ensure my stay was comfortable. I would recommend this place to any single or couple for a stay in DC close to the action.
Nice apartment that is fairly close to the Capitol. The place is clean and very updated. It's easy to walk to the metro and to a local natural food store and drug store to grab breakfast items so you don't have to rush out in the morning to grab breakfast. Also some good restaurants nearby. It's quiet at night which is nice for sleeping at night.
*10 minute UberX ride ($18) away from DCA
*1.5 blocks to the nearest metro
*1 block to Harris Teeter market
*1 block from Capital Bikeshare
*2 metro stations from Library of Congress
-far from NW region where all the good restaurants and bars are ($16 UberX ride away)
-although nothing bad happened, the neighborhood just doesn't feel safe (a few drivers told us the neighborhood is "a lot better now" and that it used to be very bad
-walls are so thin we could hear every conversation and footstep happening above us during construction/painting (apartment is a remodeled basement of the building)
Let me preface by saying that Desiree is a nice person and that her apartment is clean and cosy. She came by when we arrived in the evening to introduce herself and before she left she asked us when we were getting started with our day so she can tell the construction workers. We told her we are getting an early start and it didn't exactly set in that there would be construction going on in same building above us since that is something that is normally disclosed to a tenant beforehand...The next day we got an early start and went on our congressional tour and saw a few sites. We returned to the apartment around 3pm to full-blown construction happening on the building. One person was priming the side of the building causing dust and soot to fall all over the place with a ladder that was in the way of the entrance. We had to yell to the guy to stop for a moment so we can get in the apartment. When we finally got in the apartment all we wanted to do was rest, but that definitely wasn't going to happen with all the noise happening inside and outside of the building. We let it pass as we didn't want it to ruin our trip so early on. When we left that same evening around 8pm I almost hit my head on the now erected scaffolding covering the entire front side of the building. WTF?! We let it pass. The next morning around 8am we woke up to the construction workers arriving. I couldn't let this pass. I sent Desiree an email. She responded with a BS response saying "they were supposed to be done 2 weeks ago and they were only painting." Not exactly a solution to the problem.. in the end, she finally offered to refund us for 1 day on our last day and somewhat owned up to her failure to tell us that there would be construction during our stay. Being the patient people we are, we happily accepted and tried to enjoy the rest of our trip, outside of the apartment. She shorted us $5 on the refund since we paid $120/ni. LOL! Our advice: ask her if she will be moving in or will be having any construction done before you book.
This apartment was great for visiting relatives who couldn't quite fit into our small DC house. Desiree was great about arranging check-in times, checking in to make sure everyone was comforrtable, and having a clean and comfortable place for my relatives to stay. This was my family's first airbnb experience, and it was great!
Very clean and spacious apartment with a lot of amenities. Just a short walk to the Potomac Metro stop and the Metro card was much appreciated. There was a mix up with the cleaning lady when we checked in but Desiree graciously made it up to us.
Agree with the other commenter here about the neighborhood not feeling safe (although nothing bad happened). There was also construction going on but Desiree asked us beforehand what time we start in the morning so we weren't bothered that much.
Had a great time!
We had a wonderful time at Desiree's condo. Everything was just as pictured and described. It was clean and hadn't there been construction work upstairs it also would have been quiet. Desiree left a bunch of hints where to go, maps and metro cards so it was easy to get around. She was very responsive and easy to communicate with. Congress was in walking distance (about 20 minutes). The restaurants in 8th street were nice too. If we come back to Washington, we definetly will see that we can stay here again.
