I highly recommend both, Dietmar and his 1 BR apartment. The apartment is surprisingly large (I guess 700 sft or so), very well equipped and maintained. Whatever one needs is there (really, everything) and Dietmar is just one floor away to take care of any question you may have. It has been a great and wonderful experience staying here.
This was our first experience with airbnb, and it was so good that our next airbnb experience will have a lot to live up to! First, the apartment was incredibly spacious. It had a nice sized bedroom, a bathroom, good sized living room, and a fully equipped kitchen. It was very clean and had new and high quality appliances. It felt like an IKEA Model home. Dietmar, our host, was very accommodating and available. He went out of his way to help us with things like: how to order a cab, printing up our vouchers and airline tickets, and making sure I had some extra things that I needed. The kitchen was stocked with all the necessary condiments, every kitchen utensil you could think of, and some food items: including beer and ice cream!
I booked this Airbnb for my parents, who were visiting DC for the weekend. They insisted they write their own review, which I've inserted below:
I have been reflecting on our stay at Dietmar's apartment and wanted to share what we thought: It was amazing! It was all that you could ask for in a very nice hotel, but even more. It was very tastefully decorated - we loved the European design. Better than a concierge, Dietmar had anything that we could ask for already on hand: An amazingly comfortable bed, food, movies, reading material, toiletries and much more.
Everything was immaculate. He even had umbrellas, which came in handy due to the heavy rains that we experienced on our first day there. There were dishes and utensils that allowed us to have family over and cook together, hosting a family brunch on the last day we were there. Afterwards, we all walked to the zoo, which was only a few blocks away.
There were movies to watch and great reading material, even a new newspaper from our first day there. I told Justin that Dietmar must have the "gift" of hospitality. We had a very restful and comfortable stay at this apartment and would stay again in a heartbeat.
It was a great pleasure staying at Dietmar's place during our one week stay in Washington. We couldn't have chosen a better place! The location was great, the appartment was very spacious and perfectly equipped with everything we needed and more, and Dietmar was an extremely forthcoming host. We can only recommend this place and will surely choose the same place if we visit Washington again.
This apartment was just as described in the pictures. It is very clean, modern and the host is there for any questions you may have. I would recommend this apartment for those who wake up early, as you can hear every step very loudly from the apartment above. Overall, we had a great stay here and it is in a great location.
Dietmar has a wonderful apartment. It is clean, spacious and very comfortable. He provides basic food, which is a very nice touch and makes things easy. The apartment is within easy walking distance of the metro and close to restaurants and shops. It is very easy to get downtown to all the sights. A great value and I would recommend Dietmar's place highly.
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful apartment. It was spotlessly clean and had everything in it to make our time there very comfortable. Dietmar was very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. It is very well situated, only 10 minutes from the metro and 20 minutes from Downtown Washington. We would highly recommend it.
I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed staying in Dietmar's wonderful apartment, we had such a wonderful vacation in DC that we are already planning a return visit. This would be our first pick for lodgings because it is so much more than just a lodging! After long days out exploring the city, it was such a joy to return to a home and spend the evening in comfort. Eating our evening meals in a fully eqipped kitchen, and enjoying a movie before retiring. It is a perfect distance from the metro (about 15 minute walk), so no car rentals are necessary. The place is clean, comfortable and fully stocked with anything you might need for a short or extended stay. I considered it a home away from home. Thanks so much Dietmar for hospitality!
Great apartment and location. We all enjoyed the amenities provided as well as the decor. Very easy to get to everywhere we needed to go.
I spent 13 nights here while I worked at the Smithsonian and had a great stay. Check-in and out was very easy, and the apartment was spotlessly clean and well equipped. The place is deceptively large and very comfortable. I stayed during an exceptionally cold-snap but the place was warm. The area is very handy with a metro stop nearby and Giant grocery store plus countless liquor stores on Mount Pleasant. I would definitely look-out for this place again when I next travel to DC - all round a great experience and great value. Thanks!
I know Dietmar for many years and have stayed at his beautifully renovated basement apartment. If you are looking for a place to get some good sleep (in a spacious and very comfortable bed), some rest from sightseeing or visiting friends, for a clean and well-attended place that is located in one of the nicest neighborhoods in Washington DC, this is your place!
