I offer a clean and simple studio in the heart of Logan Circle, DC's most centrally located and hippest neighborhood. If you are searching for an affordable, easily accessible place look no further!
This first floor studio apartment is in Logan Circle, one of DC's most centralized neighborhoods famous for unique restaurants and nightlife. This building is an easy walk from the monuments, museums, White House and three metro stops. The apartment has shiny hardwood floors, lots of natural light and comes with an internet connection. Their is a window air conditioning unit that is very powerful and can be set to whatever temperature keeps you comfortable. Street parking is available overnight but is only 2 hours between 7AM and 9PM. However for an extra $30 I can get you a two week visitor parking pass which allows you to park all day on the street. I love welcoming people and connecting them to the sights and attractions that this great city has to offer.
The building itself is a medium sized apartment complex - 5 floors with an old elevator. It is a blue collar building, nothing fancy and filled with a diverse mix of young professionals and families .
Responding to recent guest feedback I have rearranged the living/sleeping area of the apartment swapping out older more bulky furniture for newer, sleeker items. Friends and family now agree the place feels much cleaner and spacious. Most importantly the room boasts a very comfortable, new queen-sized bed.
For travelers with computers and tablets with them I also have an HDTV television equipped with an HDMI cable so you can relax to a movie or television series streamed from your device.
Interaction with Guests
Very little. I set things up as much as possible so guests come and go without being bothered. I am happy to grab a beer though with guests if they would like to talk to a local! Just let me know!!
One of the hottest neighborhoods in DC. 14th street is a quick 3 min walk away and is the epicenter of DC's food and bar revival! It is also a central point to other areas of interest in the city including the mall, downtown, Dupont Circle and the U st area.
Close to Mt. Vernon Plaza metro (.33 miles), Mcpherson Square (.6miles) and Dupont and Metro Center (.9 miles). You are within walking distance to all major metro lines. You are only a little more than a mile from the heart of downtown and the mall and can take buses easily as well to get to most hot spots! Cabs and Ubers are also easy to come by and one rarely waits more than 5 minutes. There is also a Capital Bikeshare, (website hidden), for folk who prefer to bike, only two blocks away at 11th and M.
Other Things to Note
Sometimes the neighbors/ first floor location can make the apartment a bit loud during the afternoon but it has always been quiet during the night. My place is a better spot for people looking for a no frills, comfortable spot in a great central location. People who plan to spend most of their time in the room, and are looking for a hotel like experience should definitely look elsewhere.
One great day in D.C.
Great location, just a few mins walk to a subway station. If you rent a capital public bike ($7/day), 8 mins to the White House.
What I love most is the cheery trees besides the building. There are 10+ cheery trees on the street, and April is just the very best time to stay here and enjoy the cheery booms.
The studio is cozy and being well organized. Especially LOOOOVE the bed!!!
1. When we checked in at 5:00PM, the room was NOT CLEANED yet. The housekeeper told us it was because of the late-check-out of last guests. It's quite disappointed as we already arrived @D.C. in the morning (both Charlie and housekeeper knew it) but still couldn't get a clean room in the afternoon. Schedule of check in logistic should be approve.
2. As being described on the Room Page, the soundproofing condition is not so well. You can clearly hear noise from both inside and outside during daytime. At midnight, it was quiet. But it still shock us when the FIRE RING BELL suddenly rang at 6:30AM for one min!!!
It's pretty basic. Would be nice if there was a bedside light. It's in an older building so when the bathtub clogged, Charlie was efficient to get it unplugged. Unfortunately it was on a weekend and had to wait until Monday. Great central location so can't complain.
Great communication from Charlie! He let us check in early and leave our bags in the apartment while we wondered around DC.
The apartment is in a good location with lots of great bars and restaurants just around the corner!
The apartment itself is simple, no frills - had everything we needed. The bed is great!!
The heating was a bit noisy - it is an old building - we used earplugs after the first night after being woken up a few times. If I am to be really picky - a few extra hangers and some shelves in the bathroom wouldn't go a miss!
Otherwise all good - would recommend.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.

I am a Washington DC native who grew up in the city and have spent most of the last ten years in my home town when not living abroad in Africa, Latin America, or Europe.
I am currently a government consultant here in town and travel a decent amount so would love to rent my place out to respectful individual who can use my great location to see all this amazing city has to offer!
