Very nice apartment close to Eastern Market
Well-appointed, clean, quiet neighborhood, and close to Union Station and Eastern Market.
We stayed in the Penthouse for a four day weekend. It was so comfortable. The decor was fabulous. If you enjoy contemporary furnishings this is the place for you. Very well appointed with everything you need. The location was perfect (right in the heart of Capitol Hill. Stores and restaurants were just a few blocks away. Just to say we were very pleased with everything. Would definitely stay there again.
Great location, fun kitchen-equipment, some mishaps
We loved walking to the Mall by the Capitol every day on our way to museums! Lovely neighborhood! The kitchen is like something from a Jacques Tati film: pneumatic bar stools, a dishwasher that opens by knocking on its door, a fully automatic espresso machine.... this was all really fun.
Overall we were comfortable in this apartment, as it was fairly clean and bright--but it is not really suitable for more than 2 people (as advertised.) Moreover, the host failed to provide two promised extra mattresses for our tween kids, so we had to make due for them on the sectional in the living room, with linens scavenged from the closet. Heating from the mini-split units was erratic, and there was no indication how to use the fireplace, so the apartment was sometimes cold.
Also, the host had given us the wrong electronic code for our apartment door. We were able to get in on our arrival, because, as it turned out, the door was never locked unless activated from an exterior button--which we didn't do until the morning of the 3rd day (no instructions were provided). When we returned that day at 8:00pm, we were locked out. Host was not reachable, ("out of the country"), and a call to his 'friend Sam', got no answer either. We spent a rather agonizing 2 hours in late evening with our kids, frantically calling/emailing the host, other hotels, and finally a locksmith. Luckily an email (or something) got through to the host, who finally called back and gave us the right code for unit 3 (instead of unit 2). After an exhausting day, we were able get in at close to 11pm.
At the price we were paying per night, this was not acceptable.
I presented all of this to the host for a response: his offer was a free night on our next visit.
With such unreliable communication and problems, we will not be returning.
I don't believe he intentionally gave us the wrong code, but he failed to deliver promised arrangements, and in combination with no back-up help provided, resulting in real stress for my family, I cannot recommend this place to others (especially with kids), in spite of it's wonderful location.
When you request to book my house, I explained that we only have one queen size bed. You respond:
“We are generally pretty flexible when traveling as a foursome.
I certain that our daughters would enjoy “camping” on the sofa, if you could provide adequate lines/ pillows.”
I did provide them.
That was our deal.
After, i said That i will try to provide 2 ikea mattress ( from my Nighbor)
He was not available and I had to leave country a day after you checked into my house.
Providing extra mattress was not our deal.
Texting you Wrong code was my fault (every human do mistake)and I did apologize for that.
I was available the same day you checked in and I wished you make sure everything was ok. Specially the door code.
Not leaving my house door open all day while you were see sighting. Thanks god nothing happened. When you texted sam he rich me immediately And I called you less that one hr.
Also the dish and the dishwasher soap was under the sink cabinet.
Please make sure to find the right place for your next trip.
Lovely place with great appliances and lots of room
We had a wonderful time in this well appointed, large apartment. It's beautiful and nicely decorated. The apartment had lots of natural light from the many windows. The owner responded quickly to every question I asked. This is a great place to stay in a very nice neighborhood.
Very clean and modern with now amenities.
A beautiful and comfortable place. Everything we could ever want.
Thanks for staying in my apartment
I hope to have you guys again!
