The listing description was accurate and getting the keys was an easy process. The neighborhood is great - I actually live a few blocks away and booked Adreinne's apartment for my family.
The location was perfect - close to a grocery store, restaurants and the Metro. The apartment was large enough and everyone slept very comfortably.
Adreinne was very accommodating and incredibly fast when responding to the listing as well as any questions I had. She was not around when my family was staying but she made herself very accessible.
I would definitely book this place again in the future!
It was great staying at Adreinne place, it was a very lively building in a great location. Two blocks from the train station and half a block from the grocery store makes it a perfect place for travelers. The block behind the apartment is full of little restaurants and local stores and they all look delicious. The only downside was a little encounter with a bug that I have never seen before, it was scary, lol. But all in all, is was a marvelous stay. :)
El anfitrión logro que mi familia y yo nos sintiésemos muy bien. La descripción del anuncio corresponde con las facilidades que se ofrecen. Quisiera resaltar lo magnífico la ubicación, en una esquina el supermercado "Giant" y por la otra esquina a una cuadra la estación del Metro "Mt. Vermont/ Convention Center" lo que nos permitió recorrer DC con facilidad. Volveríamos a rentar este apartamento de nuevo y lo recomendamos.
Adrienne was welcoming and kind -the instructions to enter the apartment were easy.
The pictures were a little deceiving and a lot of random things around the apartment need to be fixed (light bulbs, leaky fridge, really squeaky shower knobs, bathroom fan noise, metal sticking out of bed frame). I slept on the pull out couch which was fine but could not find any pillows for me -had to steal from master bedroom, and the sheets did not seem very clean. Just a few little things that were annoying.
Great location and pretty quiet street for DC.
Would probably not stay here again but overall, it was OK.
What a shame that you were not won over by the charm of our apartment. We certainly would have provided new bed linen had we known you were unhappy. Also, the free washer and dryer could have been useful. We certainly clean all sheets and towels before each guest arrives. As for pillows, we put extra in the bedroom because they will not all fit on the couch. We will look into your other complaints - squeaky shower knobs and bathroom fan noise? Our goals are to improve the apartment for the next guests.
All the best to you!
Quirky and comfortable little apartment extremely close to the Convention Centre and supermarket which was a huge bonus. Adreinne was very welcoming and responded to questions quickly. Had a great stay in Washington!
Adreinne was an excellent host who prepared me well and assisted during my stay. The apartment is very cosy and worked well for me, being only a blocks from a supermarket, and a couple of blocks from the metro and the convention centre. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.
Overall, given the price this is a good find. (Rated 4 stars in light of price). Nothing to write home about, but warm, safe and with the amenities you need. Could definitely be nicer but again, for the price, very reasonable.
Access was sufficient with a key box and let-yourself-in approach as expected. The apartment is in pretty decent shape with a generally clean setting. The bathroom is clean but no frills. BYO toiletries. Kitchen had everything you need to cook. Bed was good. The linen situation is okay but I found sheets that had been in the wash for days (they smelled) and had to put them in the dryer to do a load for myself. The pull-out mattress is not comfortable to sleep on and did not look like it was particularly clean either. Would not recommend it for sleeping. The back room where the bed is could use some insulation. Again, not terrible, but room for improvement.
Host was contacted during stay for ice on the stoop which was attended to that day and she explained that they were trying to get better at laundry. Good attention during stay.
The host's attitude towards guests in the listing with instructions is a bit off-putting. While paying a cleaning fee, I feel like I can expect the trash to be taken out and dishes washed.
Nothing terrible and if you're on a budget, this will be a very reasonable find by the convention center. Not a hotel replacement.
