Borko's apartment is well located in Dupont Circle, with close proximity to great cafes/bars/restaurants and public transport. We found the apartment easily, and appreciate the correspondence from Borko via text and email ensuring that we had been able to get in and were comfortable. The apartment itself was clean and comfortable, with WiFi, plenty of extra bedding and towels, and the right size for two people. The kitchen is a good size, and well-equipped, making it easy to prepare food at the apartment. It was sweltering in DC while we were there and the air-conditioner was a welcome relief. We found that there was no real room to unpack our bags however - with no real cupboard or surface space remaining.
The apartment is as advertised and pretty much as pictured. It is situated in Dupont which is a great lively neighborhood. It was relatively clean (I cleaned the bathroom again), and had most all the essentials you would need to stay comfortably (plenty of towels & bath needs). The kitchen was well equipped which was important to me as I always try to save money by cooking. On the down side, the place is filled to the brim with the owners personal belongings. There is no shelf, drawer, or closet space to speak left for your use as a renter. Be ready to live out of your suitcase for the most part. I did however have to hunt down trash cans, & there were no trash bags or even shopping bags to line the cans I dug out of the closet (that were filled with misc. things).I was a little uncomfortable having to open closets as everything is filled with their things. If you don't mind this, it really is a nice place in a great area to stay.The host was very responsive and checked in on me asking about how my stay was going, even though traveling out of the country. I was extremly unprepared & unhappy when the cleaning woman showed up an hour & a half early & didn't speak much english & pretty much refused to come back at 12 as scheduled, but instead stayed and ignored me. The host assured me that she was not scheduled until 12, & was out of the country, so it was basically out of his hands. Don't walk around in your pajama pants & bra on your depature day as you may be walked in on as I was LOL Overall a nice place to stay.
just wonderful - great location; lovely building; helpful neighbor when Borko was away; great accommodations for a couple visiting Washington.Thank you so much.
