It was a bit smaller than we anticipated, and the kitchen smaller than expected. Great, safe neighborhood
What a great first experience with airbnb. Talk about Location, location, location! Not only was the condo within walking distance to the Capitol, Supreme Court, and Library of Congress and only a few blocks from Union Station, the neighborhood was quaint and safe and had several little neighborhood restaurants and a little market on the same street. Lovely!
As far as the accommodations, they were extremely clean, nicely decorated, and had everything you might need, including wifi. The host was extremely responsive and provided fantastic information about sights to see, etc. Thanks for making wonderful memories.
The condo was great! Clean and beautifully decorated! Everything you need is there. It is so close to the museums that I was able to walk. A great little coffee shop is right around the corner too!
My daughter and I stayed in a very clean and updated studio apartment. Loved the location as it was close to the National Mall and more important my son residence. It was a great vacation place in walking distance to the metro. No car was need. My son liked the apartment so much he wanted a place just like it.
The primary benefit of this apartment is its location - right near to Union Station, the Metro and the Capital Bike Share Scheme - all contribute to making the most of a visit the Washington DC. The studio is ideal for a couple or single, is comfortable and quiet. There are a number of restaurants and fast food suppliers within easy reach, Kyoto, a Japanese restaurant to name but one, immediately below the apartment.
This apartment is operated by a company and is not your private dwelling of an owner looking to supplement his income. They are clinically very efficient in their communications and process, if a little lacking in the warmer personal touch.
Would happily recommend.

About the Host, Charlotte

We offer studios to full homes for stays of 4 nights up to 8 months. Let us know your travel plans and we will find the best fit for your needs. Be generous and share the knowledge of LUXbnb, your source for short-stay rentals in Washington, with your friends, family adn colleagues.
Our latest addition are vacation properties for Washingtonians. See the Washington Vacations section on our website for homes in the nearby mountains. Take a few days away from the bustle of the city to explore our bucolic countryside little changed over the past 2 to 3 centuries. Visit wineries and orchards, significant Civil War battlefields and historic towns, hike the Apalachian Trail or follow in the footsteps of our founding fathers by visiting their homes. There is plenty to do that beckons you to leave the city for a weekend or a week.
A bit about me...I am a former Californian who, after 12 years in DC, is now an honorary Washington native. Being well traveled both domestically and internationally has given me a great appreciation for the enrichment contact with others brings to our experience. I am well-versed on the "must-see" sights, monuments and museums of our culturally rich city, along with the unique experiences your find only in Washington. We share that insight with our guests in our property Welcome Guides which we send upon confirmation.
We very much enjoy hosting visitors to our Nation's Capital and ensuring that they are able to make the most of their visit.
