As a PhD student, my main occupation is studying. Other than that I enjoy a good book or movie, cooking, and go out with friends.
David and Norma were great hosts. The room was very nice and spacy, and the neighborhood is great. I would recommend this place to my friends anytime.
I stayed at David and Norma's apartment for a month while on a research trip to archives in the area. The location is brilliant; it's walking distance from the Library of Congress, Union Station, and the Eastern Market Metro stop. So as a base for a researcher it was ideal. The accommodation was fully as advertised and clean. Our schedules didn't intersect all that often but David & Norma were gracious hosts. A couple issues came up with the internet connection and meeting times but all within their power was done to fix them. Although the internet connection was never quite good enough for me to make web-based voice calls home. It was extremely hot while I was in town so their aircon was quite literally a life-saver.
Very grateful to have had the opportunity to stay here on my trip!
David's place is cute and neat with a perfect location. I enjoyed full privacy during my 7 days staying there. The neighborhood is beautiful and safe, with tons of restaurants and coffee shops around the corner. Highly recommended!
Nous avons apprécié l'accueil de Norma en l'absence de David. Le quartier où est situé l'appartement est calme et sécuritaire et à proximité de services (pharmacies, restaurants, métro). Nous avons aussi apprécié l'accès libre à la cuisine.
David's place was a great way to start my experience with airbnb. He's very easy to communicate with & quick to respond. House is exactly as it appears in the photos, neat & tidy. Room is actually quite large & there's some cupboard space. The Capitol Hill SE area of DC is extremely pretty & very close to the actual Capitol Hill, Library of Congress etc. Also close to Eastern Market metro station. It is a fairly quite, non-touristy area, mainly residential, but has a number of restaurants, cafes & shops, more than enough to keep you buys for a few days!
We stayed with David and his room-matefor 10 days. They were very accommodating with our late check-in time upon arrival. David did provide 2 metro passes which was nice, but we had to request towels, and the bathroom was shared by 4 adults. Even though he and his room mate were good about being quiet and staying out of our way, we felt uncomfortable with the shared bathroom.
The location was perfect, and within walking to Eastern Market and the Museums.
Overall, this was our first experience using Airbnb, and would probably request much more additional information prior to booking from each individual offering the services.
If you want to stay in a cheap student house, this is the place to be. Including underwear in the shower, cheap Ikea bed, closet filled with stuff from the hosts, no cleaning, no lock on the guest room, and a high bill: $100 p/night.
(Location was allright, but quite a long wolk to the subway. Though in a great neighbourhood.)
Not very attempting for the next trip to Washington...
David's guest room was very cozy indeed, clean and spacious. David and his flatmate were very kind --I arrived in town by midnight and they were waiting for me. They provided me with a DC visitor's guide, a city map and a Smartrip card for the metro along with the house keys. This all surpassed my expectations. The neighborhood was lovely and safe, and the walking distance to the Eastern market metro station was less than 10 minutes --quite convenient location. From there it's only a 10 minute trip to Metro Center.
I didn't get to see either David or his flatmate more than once very shortly as they both work, so basically the flat was for my own. Very nice experience overall and I would hit David's again definitely!
The place is really great, the bedroom is clean, quite big and sunny. The flat is very nice and the neighborhood is really quiet and lovely.
Unfortunatly, David wasn't at home when we arrived but it's not a problem for him! He's really well organised and he didn't hesitate to call me on a french mobile phone to give us informations to get to his place.
More, the place is really near to the Capitol, to Eastern Market metro station and to the Union Station.
They were great hosts. The flat was bright, clean and tidy and the bedroom was big and sunny. Location was tops, good neighbourhood and close to Smithsonians, subway. I'd recommend it.
David and his friend Gustavo were wonderful guests! They were very courteous, friendly, and easy to host. Both were easy going and low-maintenance. All around, I thoroughly enjoyed hosting them!
Hello David! It was really nice to have you here. i Hope you enjoyed the Jazz festival. We hope to see you soon in DC!
David and his group of friends were wonderful guests. They came to relax for a long weekend and seemed to do just that.
They were thoughtful, respectful and friendly guests and we would welcome back any or all of them in the future.
