This was our first Airbnb experience and it exceeded our expectation by a lot! We got a spacious and clean private master bedroom with walk-in closet and huge bathroom (with bathtub!). Location is very convenient, just about 3 metro stations away from downtown and walkable distance to U street where all the nice restaurants frequented by locals are. Joel is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. He recommended us to go to U and 14th street for restaurants and we ended up going there for most of our breakfasts and dinners because we like the area and the food so much. He also told us about city bike sharing, which was a great experience, and saved us a lot of time from walking to places. Definitely a great place to stay!
Good location, about three short blocks from the subway, and the same distance from a number of bars and restaurants. Safe neighborhood. Joel himself was very hospitable - I got a large private bedroom, walk-in closet, bathroom, and even a small porch to myself, as well use of the kitchen and living room.
I had an erratic schedule, alternately sitting in my room working on the Internet or traveling around town to meet with people, and this place was a great central location to do all of that from. I would definitely recommend it.
Joel is the ideal host to stay with in DC!
On our way to Charlottesville, VA a friend and I stopped by in DC for two days. As the price for a regular hotel room would have exceeded our budget, and all hostels in town were either booked out or seemed kind of sketchy, we decided to check airbnb. Joel's profile looked very promising, so we posted a request immediately. We planned our trip quite spontaneously only two days in advance, so we were really happy having a positive response from Joel only a few hours after that. Everything else from booking through arrival to our departure went smoothly and problem-free. Joel was a very friendly host who was ready to help with tips in terms of nice DC neighborhoods, good restaurants etc. Our room was excellent! Everything was in perfect condition, neat and clean. Whenever I am back in DC, I would want to stay with Joel again!
Joel was a great guest, easy to communicate with & respectful of our Lodge. We highly recommend as a guest. Thanks for staying with us!
