About this listing
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.
Charlie ha sido muy agradable,practico y claro para arreglar el tema de la llaves, el check in y el check out. Su departamento estaba limpio aunque no esta decorado como en las fotos. En las fotos se ve mucho mas lindo que en persona. La zona no es mala pero esta un poco mas alejada de los puntos principales para visitar, metro, bus,etc. Si bien uno esta recorriendo todo el dia, hay tele pero no hay cable, solo la opcion de enchufar computadora (que no lleve).
Destaco la limpieza del lugar, cocina, baño, sabanas de buena calidad y varias toallas. Me hubiera gustado que la decoracion hubiera coincidido con la de las fotos.
Charlie sent us a message before we arrived with information, and responded quickly to questions.
The place was clean, easy to get into and in a very good location.
Charlie was very responsive to my messages and it was simple to get into the apartment. It was as described though quite small. The bedroom and bathroom were both much smaller than the average hotel room. The kitchen could only accommodate maybe 2 people standing side-by-side.
The location within the city was good with lots of restaurants and stores nearby. It is an easy walk to the Metro.
Fantastic! Charlie (and Maria) were not only helpful, but very quick to respond. Only issue was that because of many bikes parked along the front gate, it took a while to find the lock box (it was hiding behind someone's seat and blended in!) But a very nice neighbor walking out helped me locate it. A big plus!
It was very easy to get access to this place as Charlie has a good system for getting in and out. The location was the biggest benefit - the Logan and Dupont Circle areas are within an easy walk, and it was a short 15-minute walk to my work site. Like a previous reviewer, I will have to say that the pictures do make it look nicer. The building is a little run down, and the room felt a little dirty. Overall, though, it was just what I needed for this work trip this week, and - really - the location was great.
The apartment was easy to get to and get into. The place was a bit smaller than it looks in the picture, but definitely comfortable. Had a bit of an issue getting it cleaned since we arrived a little earlier than the regular check-in. Otherwise, it was a good stay! Clean, comfortable apartment and nice neighborhood.

About the Host, Charlie
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!
