Marcos was very friendly. The room is very basic (as depicted in the ad), but clean and adequate for the business trip I was on.
Marcos was a perfect host and seasoned pro at sharing necessary lodging information. When my cab dropped me off in the wrong location and I had to walk 15mins to the apartment, Marcos greeted me downstairs with a delicious cup of hot cocoa-- wow! Also, he had all relevant lodging information (wifi code, extra blankets and towels, toiletries) immediately available, such that I felt "settled in" within 10 minutes of walking into the building.
Additionally, the room felt like its own suite, with the bedroom and bathroom connected and completely private.
Marcos was hospitable and professional about hosting guests in their apartment. The room and separate bathroom are convenient -- couldn't have asked for anything more. If you need to stay in Arlington for business, this is a great location choice.
This was my first time using airbnb, and Marcos helped make it a very good experience. He is very knowledgeable of the DC area and was very generous during my stay. I was in the area looking for work as well as finding a permanent place. Marcos gave me thorough advice and answered all my questions.The private room and private entrance to the bathroom made the stay much more comfortable. Neighborhood was very safe and the metro stop is a very short walk. Commuting into the city was very fast and easy. I would definitely stay here again and would advise anyone to stay at Marcos' place if they are looking for an affordable, clean and safe environment.
My experience at Marcos's (which was my first airbnb stay) was excellent in all respects. The building was well-located and well-priced for my meeting at NSF. Marcos is an excellent host and his communication before, during and after my stay was great. The private bathroom is accessible from inside the bedroom which made me more comfortable. I can highly recommend this property and this host!
My second time in Marcos' place. The location is great for NSF in Arlington. My experience was just as positive as the first stay -- clean apartment, great hosts. I would stay there a third time for sure!
As all the reviews have said, Marcos is very gracious, and I agree. The pictures are very accurate. I would recommend Marcos with one caveat. The noise from the living room transmits noise directly into the sleeping room whether from the TV set or if they are speaking on their phone. I know from speaking to Marcos that he wants to create a harmoniously environment for his guests and that he is very open to listening and responding to requests to turn down the television or whatever is needed to make your stay enjoyable.
Marcos's condo was exactly as advertised. The airbnb bedroom and bath were like a separate apartment within his condo. Marcos was very welcoming and helpful, especially when my friend discovered she had lost her cell phone (it was eventually recovered). The neighborhood is wonderful, a few blocks from Ballston, and also the northern VA bike trails plus many restaurants and at least one brewpub all within walking distance. Marcos's condo overlooks the pool, not a busy street, so is pleasant for sleeping. The condo has a nice fitness room with several machines that were in great working order.
The location was incredibly convenient, and Marcos is a very thoughtful and accommodating host. It's a great place to stay if you want to be near Ballston or Virginia Square.
Comfortable apartment, great hosts, ideal location for NSF.
Marcos and Maria were perfect guests. They left the apartment neat and tidy. Although we didn't get to spend much time together, I enoyed speaking with them. We hope to have them back in the future.
Marcos and his wife were a very nice couple. We had good communication
they followed all the house rules and left the apartment clean an tidy.
