Spacious 1br in Adams Morgan
Great 1br with one double bed and a sofa bed with a comfortable memory foam mattress, hardwood floors, lots of windows and light, AC, kitchen, dining room, bathroom in a secure building! Shared gym and laundry room conveniently located on the first floor. The apartment is quiet and sits at the back of the building, just off Adams Morgan, Mount Pleasant and Columbia Heights.
Wi-Fi and flat screen TV with Netflix and Hulu available.
The location is ideal! Not only is it in the Adams Morgan neighborhood, close to a wide range of bars and restaurants, but it's also just a five minute walk from the national zoo (admission is free) and Rock Creek Park. A perfect place to enjoy the DC nightlife, culture and nature.
Transportation: 7 minute walk from Columbia Heights Metro (green and yellow lines) and there is a bus stop right in front of the building with buses (42, 43, S4, S2) going to downtown DC.
For your convenience, there is a Safeway, Harris Teeter, CVS, 7Eleven, and DCUSA, the only mall in DC (with Target, DSW, Best Buy, Bed Bath and Beyond, Payless, Marshalls, etc.), just a 5 minute walk away.

Please return the apartment in the condition you found it in.
Es un apartamento muy cómodo, aún siendo 4 personas quienes estuvimos allí. Desde luego que el apartamento está equipado con todo lo que se requiere para una estancia familiar y de hecho tiene muchas mas cosas de lo que se requiere. Hay un gato precioso y, en el caso nuestro que no hemos convivido nunca con uno, creemos que es un juicioso y divertido gatito. Sin embargo resulta un poco extraño -y para mi- algo incomodo tener tan cerca su casita y la arena, aunque eso nunca fue significativo.
La ubicación del apartamento es perfecta. Adams Morgan es un barrio precioso y cercano a muy buenos restaurantes, a la línea del tren y a sitios maravillosos para hacer ejercicio.
This was our first time using Airbnb and Gilles made sure we had a great experience. Booking was a breeze and Gilles gave us all the necessary information needed to access the apartment prior to our arrival in DC. The apartment was clean on arrival and he was kind enough to leave a parking permit, maps, and restaurant brochures on the kitchen table for us. The neighborhood was quiet, yet located in close proximity to the heart of Adams Morgan and Woodley. The cat -- Katsumi -- was a pleasure to stay with; he greeted us with purrs any time we returned and was very easy going. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this same space from Gilles and Paola the next time we're in the D.C. area.
Even we couldn't meet in person, Gilles was very nice and helpful, and via e-mail he made sure that everything works out. He answered every question very quickly and we knew we could appeal to him whenever we needed. His cat Katsumi is very cute and it was nice to be welcomed by her in the evening. The apartment looks like shown in the photos, only the furniture has changed a little. It's located in a secure environment and very near to the popular quarter Adams Morgan with lot's of bars and restaurants. For sightseeing (Capitol, museums) we had to take the Metro which is only 10-15 minutes away. Altogether we recommend staying here.
Gilles et Paola ont ete on ne peut plus reactifs et accueillants tout au long de notre sejour chez eux. L'appart etait exactement comme decrit, parfait pour un sejour a quatre dont deux enfants en bas age qui ont couche sur le grand canape que l'on voit sur la photo. Appart tres bien situe, bien desservi non seulement par le metro mais aussi par les bus qui descendent et remontent la 16e rue a longueur de journee. Proximite a Rock Creek Park (et le zoo) tres appreciee. Climatisation impeccable (on peut l'eteindre sans probleme si on veut), pression d'eau sous la douche geniale, ce qui est fort appreciable apres une journee de marche. Immeuble impeccable, reception chaleureuse et serviable. Et la cerise sur le gateau pour ceux qui aiment les felins (comme nous), Katsumi le chat: adorable, calin, parfait (voire indispensable!) avec les enfants (ils en parlent encore! Nous reviendrions sans hesiter! Merci Gilles et Paola!
The flat is very nicely located about 10 minutes walk from Columbia Heights metro station (Yellow/Green line) and near many Mexican restaurants. If you're used to quiet suburbs, though, I'd be cautious - the apartment has all of the "city" noise one needs to be used to sleeping through: sirens, busses, trucks, honking, and the occasional noises from neighbors - stuff ear plugs don't really block out. Of course, this can all be part of the charm too of being in the city! The water pressure in the shower is really intense (and awesome too!)
Some of the furniture has been updated since the photos were taken of the apartment, but the look and feel is generally the same.
Gilles was easy to communicate with and we'd absolutely stay in their flat again next time we visit D.C.!
Hi Mike, thank you for your feedback. I'm glad to read that you like the apartment and the furniture upgrade. I'm sorry to hear that the noise was an issue. No guests ever mentioned it before and we consider that we're actually quite lucky to live in such a green and quite neighborhood.
Gilles was a great host. He was very friendly, avaible for questions, we recceivede detailed instructions the day before we arrived (very usefull), and called the morning after our arrival to make sure everything was alright. So good experience. The appartment was clean, bright, quite calm (we were there for new year's eve and I slept like any other day !). We had a car, so we sometimes had to look around few minutes to find a parking spots, but in 4 days it wasn't parked more than a 5 minutes walk from the place. There is a Target nearby and many places to eat. Even if we didn't use them, we could see that we were very close to bus stops. So, if I had to summarize : we had a really good time, would recommend it and stay there again !
A very comfortable apartment with 10 minute walk (or less) to the Metro station and within a block of a dependable bus route. Very safe, well maintained building in an enjoyable neighborhood close to downtown but away enough to get out of the craziness when DC is over-populated when Congress is in session.
Gilles is a very responsive and responsible host!
