I live in Washington, DC, and enjoy traveling around as well as learning from others. I am in the international development field, grew up in Paris and now live in DC.
Nice place, clean and very well located. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the place to anyone.
Cyril was a great host--very communicative and easy to get a hold of when needed. The apartment was perfect for a stay in DC. It had a very comfy bed in a quite large bedroom, small but usable kitchen, and sizable lounge. The location couldn't be beat, within walking distance of all the sights. We were very happy there and wouldn't hesitate to stay again if in DC.
Excellent location and lovely flat - we're really pleased we booked this flat.
Perfect for couples or singles traveling together with sofa bed in living room. Great location near Dupont Circle; many good restaurants, grocery store, and drugstore nearby. Located on a tree-lined street, wonderful old building, but modern apartment, and very quiet. Cyril was the perfect host--never intrusive (met us on arrival, then left), but always available by phone.
Location, location, location. Dupont Circle metro is just a short walk from Cyril's apartment along an interesting street. We cooked in quite a bit, so finding Safeway just a couple of blocks away was very helpful. The apartment's appliances include an electric range, a dishwasher, and a refrigerator. It's also got a great shower.
We didn't need to use the A/C -- unfortunately it rained hard most days we were there -- so I can't say how well that works, but the main part of the apartment and the bathroom heat up well and quickly. The bedroom stays cool.
Cyril is very knowledgeable and helpful about restaurants, how to get around, and so on in the neighborhood and the DC area.
The apartment is attractively furnished and decorated. It (email hidden)d-in look because it appears to be where Cyril lives when he's not renting it to guests. So, on the one hand, everything you need is there (except a microwave). On the other hand, so are his personal effects. It's not a neutral ground. It's like staying in your uncle's friend's Florida condo while he's on a cruise.
Cyril was warm and cordial, meeting us when we arrived and walking us through getting into the building, the apartment, and so on. So, getting the key was easy, as was returning it. The building is secure and the lobby staff friendly. Cyril was also very responsive in answering my questions beforehand as well as after we were settled in.
While the apartment could accommodate 4, I can't recommend sleeping on the sleeper sofa. Our party consisted of a 6-year-old boy (who missed not having a working TV), his mother, and his grandmother.
I would recommend it to friends and would likely stay at Cyril's place again myself.
We had a good time at Cyril's apartment, a very charming and clean place. It is located in a good neighborhood with lots of places to go out and a supermarket nearby. Cyril was very helpful and responsive before and during our stay. I hope next time we're in DC we get to stay at his place again.
Great location, great apartment. Quiet, cozy, comfortable. The rooftop views are indeed wonderful. Next time we do something like this, Cyril's place is top on our list.
My parents stayed in Cyril's apartment for four nights when they come to visit me in DC, and everything was great: a clean, secure building and apartment; convenient location. The space was very comfortable and tidy. Cyril was accommodating and very responsive to questions. I would definitely recommend staying here, especially if you want a place where you can prepare food or crash and hang out in the evenings or with a family.
Cyril's place is very close to the vibrant Dupont Circle region of DC. It was easy to access by foot from GWU and the nearby area; it was also very close to the metro and buses! It's tidy and quaint; my teammates and I loved the decor, as well. It was a comfortable place to spend a weekend, for sure.
We enjoyed our time at Cyril's apartment - vey clean and comfortable. Great location as well! It is very close to the Dupont Circle metro station and within walking distance to other vibrant areas.
Cyril (respectively his dad) was an awesome guest. Everything went smooth, the communication was friendly and nice, the apartment has been left in perfect condition. I'll definitely host him again and so I can fully recommend him to any host!
Cyril and his father were great guests and left both apartment homes in perfect condition. I hope to hear from them the next time they need a place to stay in Chicago.
Cyril and his father were great guests and left the apartment in excellent condition when they moved out. I look forward to hearing from them again the next time they are in Chicago.
