  • Great location! Friendly coffee shop and cozy Italian restaurant are just down the street. Union Station is a block away and the National Mall is only a few blocks further.

    The place was very clean, nicely decorated, the bed was awesome and the host was super. We stayed 6 days so we saw most of DC but if we ever return we'll definitely stay here again.

  • The place is exactly how it looks in the pictures. It is clean and comfortable. My contact for this place, Rodney, was very responsive on text messages and would usually reply almost immediately. There was everything that I needed for my trip in the place. I was visiting friends in DC and Annapolis, so I rented a car and I was able to get a great parking spot right outside my front door. Ask if it is available. This apartment is about a 10 minute walk from Union Station where you can catch the public transit and there are plenty of places to eat and shop. The Capitol building is also about a 10 minute walk away. I would DEFINITELY stay here again.

  • Great place. Great location. We made a combo business/vacation trip to DC where I worked for 1 day and then we brought our 10-year old son to see the sites. This place is in a great location, close to Capital Hill sites and accessible to the Metro and Bikeshare.

  • This was our second air bnb expereience. The first was fantastic so we were hopeful that our DC experience would be as good. And indeed it was. The photos and description of the place and amenities were accurate. The owner was responsive to our questions and resolved a very minor problem for us immediately upon email request We hope to make this place our home away from home over the next four years.

  • What a wonderful experience we had staying at this apartment! The property was so charming, and it had all the comforts of home. It was very clean, the decor looked fresh and newly decorated, and the location felt very safe. It was also nice having a very short walk to the Union Station metro. Before our trip, we were given an incredible amount of information about getting around DC along with other recommendations for neighborhood restaurants, markets, etc. Rodney also checked in with us (email) after our arrival to make sure everything was running smoothly for us. We would recommend this property in a heartbeat!!!

  • As a first time customer of Airbnb, I couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. From the very beginning Charlotte and her team were so helpful - as I didn't realize the apartment that I initially requested was booked that week - she quickly found us an even better option for a comparable price. This apartment is in the lower level of a cute town home just a block from Union Station - a perfect location to experience the town as a local but be quickly accessible to a variety of tourist spots.

  • We loved our stay at Capitol Court. It was very clean and updated. The owner could not have been nicer and more helpful!! We forgot our printout of a couple congressional tours, and Rodney went out of his way to get them printed for us. The location was perfect!! It included a parking space, so we didn't have to pay extra for daily parking, and we were able to walk to Union Station Metro only two blocks away. We will definately stay at Capitol Court again when we are in D.C.

  • Rodney's apartment is perfect. It was less than a 5 minute walk to union station which is ideal as most of the tours left from there. The apartment was immaculate and very clean. The only very small negative was the shower, the shower head it didn't have much pressure.. Rodney was also fantastic and was easily contactable. If anyone is looking to stay in Washington DC I would recommend Rodney's apartment.

  • This apartment is the PERFECT place to stay while in DC.
    1 block away from Union Station, quiet and safe area. A couple of good restaurants very close. I will definitely be staying here again when i come back into town.

    The small touches like having coffee and tea in the kitchen was a very welcome touch.

    Thanks again.
