The good is the neighborhood,short walk to metro and many fine restaurants and bistros.The bad is the aging hotel,with unresponsive and an unhelpful staff.On my 4 nite stay 10/9-10/13.I had a positive interaction on only one shift.The elevator is limited to 2 people,one must open a sliding door than another gate to enter it takes 2 hands and a knee...

We stayed three nights in the hotel. The room was a bit small and the bathroom was a bit dated. It was clean and the large windows made it nice bright. At arrival we checked in and tried to ask some questions, but we felt the staff was not overly helpful with information. The area where we had breakfast was... More

The Baron is a small but comfortable hotel in the NW quarter of Washington DC in a great location just a 5 minute walk from the Big Bus stop (no. 35) at the corner of P Street and Rock Creek Parkway and a 5 minute walk from the metro at Dupont Circle (via Q Street). I was checked in by... More

We enjoyed our stay in this budget priced hotel. It is within easy walking distance of DuPont circle metro and is close to many restaurants. The rooms are not large and we had a double bed, but all was clean and comfortable. We ate the breakfast there which is quite basic but well priced. We walked from here into Washington... More

Our stay at this hotel was pleasant. The hotel.is located near a subway station but we often walked into central Washington DC, which took about 30 minutes. The room was clean and it was a fairly quiet location. The wifi didn't seem to work too well in our room, but did I other parts of the hotel. Having said this,... More

This place is definitley for young people who are on a budget not a couple on a weekend away. If you're looking for nostalgia this may be for you. The old elevator alone would make you happy. The neighborhood was nice but the room was a closet!! It was one step from the toilet to the bed. There was no... More

Great location in a safe neighborhood (Probably because of it's location near some embassies) with the nearest underground subway at about 10m walk and all the downtown at a 10m ride. Excellent value for money - the room was spacious, clean, quiet and the bed was comfortable.

Great location BUT ragged and very rough. Lobby looks like some college dorm room ... No front desk to speak of and a scary old cage type elevator. Room was bare bones to say the least. If you are trying to save money but looking for a good neighborhood it's a good choice. The owners could spruce up the lobby... More
