Lawyer from DC
This is a very spacious apartment in the heart of Adams Morgan. We stayed for a week with our two sons and MIL and found it a great location with crucial amenities (laundry/full furnished kitchen/comfortable beds/full bath) - the boys found the bathtub which is more of a jacuzzi - delightful! Vadim is very accommodating. Only down side for us it was fairly noisy at night (Vadim did let us know it can be) after bars close, etc. Also we are from a small town so we're more sensitive to noise of the city.
I stayed in this newly renovated 2 BR in the heart of Adams Morgan for a week while working in DC. While it has some quirks, it's both a great value and an impressive location with an extremely attentive host.
The PROS: The location can't be beat. You've got some of the best restaurants in DC at both the high and the low end. You're close to lots of transportation, an affordable parking garage ($19/day) that's cheaper than a hotel valet, and a Bikeshare station. The host, Vadim, was available by email, phone, and text before and during our stay and we found just about everything we needed within the apartment.
The wifi was great, as was the TV and the spaciousness of it. 3 of us camped out and worked for most of the week in between meetings and enjoyed our time in this apartment immensely.
The CONS: There is only one key for the building's front door. Since this is a 2 BR, you might be traveling with another party that isn't always with you. In that case you need to coordinate coming/going so one of you can let the other one in. The nice bedroom is also on a street with a lot of "walk-by" noise. The blinds don't block out that much light. If you're a light sleeper, you would want to bring earplugs and an eyemask, or just sleep in the second bedroom which is better for heavy sleepers.
BOTTOM LINE: With the caveats, the price, location, and spaciousness makes this too good of a deal to pass up.
We had a great time in Vadim's condo. We loved the neighborhood (convenient to restaurants, shopping, but not so much the Metro...more walking than we needed at the end of each day, but it still worked great). Vadim was a great host. As other reviewers have noted, it was easy checking in and out, and if anything comes up during the stay, Vadim is very responsive and makes sure you have what you need. Overall a great visit.
Vadim's place was great and exactly as pictured. There were lots of windows, comfortable beds/furniture, and a fully furnished kitchen. We stayed for 3 weeks, and it was spacious enough for all 4 of us (adults), and a dog. The location was a perfect central location in Adams Morgan, and allowed us to bike everywhere we wanted. There was only 1 key, which was less than ideal given our longer stay, but we made it work. It would get loud on the weekend nights but we expected this given the neighborhood, and other reviews. There are grocery stores nearby (3 blocks), as well as Amsterdam Falafel and Duccini's jumbo slice for late night eats (yum!). We never felt unsafe in this area, although we were careful as well.
Our main complaint would be the parking situation, which we should have looked into prior to our arrival. However, Vadim took the time to help us by driving back into DC and obtaining a visitor parking permit for us two days after our arrival (Thank you so much!).
Beyond a lovely apartment, Vadim was a pleasure to deal with! He was quick to respond, within minutes every time, to any of our questions/requests/needs from initial booking all the way through the end of our stay. We loved our stay in DC, and I would highly recommend Vadim and his place!
Apartment was exactly as appears on AirBNB - spacious, clean. Vadim was a great host - easy to communicate with and accommodating. The walls do let in quite a bit of the street noise so for those who are sensitive to do that - that's something to consider.
Very nice place in great location- if you have major cat allergies you might be affected, otherwise it was perfect!
Vadim was a great host. Booking process was efficient and simple as it was the first time I was using Airbnb. Arrival and key collection was easy. The condo was lovely and well situated around the corner to 18th St NW, lots of restaurants and bars around, very spacious for 4 people and the Jacuzzi bath, not mentioned, definitely a plus which I really enjoyed!
We had a good time at Vadim’s apartment; only one set of keys were tiny issue to split company with our friends. We felt like at home but only better! I also got the chance to meet Vadim’s as we were 1 hour late checking out and it was great, Vadim was very friendly and not at all annoyed, thank you for your patience.
We would highly recommend and definitely stayed there again if we visit again!
The booking process was easy and the apartment far surpassed expectations. We were two couples traveling from NYC to DC for the weekend and the apartment was definitely spacious enough not to be crowded with 4 people. The bedrooms were lovely and big and the beds so comfortable. The apartment was extremely clean and secure. The apartment is just off a bustling street with cafes and bars which was super easy for us to stroll down the street for some fun. Despite the proximity to a busy street the apartment is generally very quiet. We had such a wonderful time in Vadim’s apartment and the interaction with Vadim was quick and easy. I can’t recommend this apartment and its host enough.
Beautiful apartment and impeccable host. Highly recommend. I was in town with family for work and the location couldn't have been better.
Our stay at Vadim's place was incredible. The place was even nicer than the pictures suggest which is a rarity. He was also responsive, courteous and left excellent notes once we got to the place to show us how to use the tv, lights etc. The location of his place is amazing, walking distance to shops, restaurants, bars and metro. If you're lucky enough to stay at Vadim's place you will not regret it.
