Lawyer from DC
Had a great stay in Vadim's condo in Adams Morgan... The photos definitely capture the space well- it has lots of natural light, an interesting layout, and is well furnished.
Vadim is a very responsive host- he would get back to me quickly to every question or concern I had, before, during, and after our stay.
When checking in, Vadim let us know that there is a decent amount of street noise late at night on the weekends, and this proved to be true (earplugs are helpful in the street-side bedroom). But it was quiet at night the rest of the week.
There was a miscommunication in regards to a housekeeper's visit in the middle of our week-long stay, but overall we had a great time and I would definitely consider staying there again next time I visit DC.
I stayed in Vadim's apartment for three nights while attending a conference close by. Vadim was great to work with - sent detailed instructions and communicated via text. His apartment was as stated and was comfortable for myself and work colleague.
The only cons were the noise level - a bar nearby dumped their glass bottles in the alley every hour and those leaving the bars caused quite a raucous! In addition, there was limited hot water if the tub was used and we couldn't find any extra toilet paper.
The pros were that the apartment was very secure - four doors with locks just to get in and I felt really safe. The apartment was well cleaned, too. It had just what we needed for our stay.
I'd recommend Vadim's apartment to others looking for a place to land while in DC.
We stayed at Vadim's place for a week and enjoyed our stay very much. The place is large and neat and had easily enough space for my colleague and me, each of us with access to a separate bathroom. Location is great, while (as mentioned) sometimes noisy during the night (not only weekends). Earplugs help, though. The house itself was quiet, which we appreciated very much. Many of Washington's sights are within walking distance, two supermarkets are just around the corner. Vadim told us everything we needed to know and was easy to reach and really friendly. So, it would be nice to visit again!
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 (email hidden), 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!
