I stayed in this hotel in July 2015 for 2 nights and it absolutely was a bad choice. The only thing I like about the hotel is its location, the bar underground and the staff. Where shall I begin? The rooms are so small and make me feel claustrophobic. They have the most olds hook type of ventilation system with... More

This was one of the worst places I have ever experienced. The room had a soggy wet carpet with bugs in it. The beds were uncomfortable. The room smelled moldy. The staff were unfriendly. To enter the building you have to walk through a cloud of cigarette smoke from the people going to bar downstairs. The whole lobby smelled like... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights arriving the 14th of June 2015. At first I was very sceptical to stay here based on the reviews, but with the great price for the location I decided to give it a go. I was pleasantly surprised. We arived at 6am in Washington DC after an 18 hour international flight.... More

Excellent location, safe neighborhood, easy walk to the metro. Comfortable room for the price. It was older and somewhat small but a good value for the price. Also, it was quiet on the night of the 4th, so a major plus.

I've been trying to stay at this small hotel (A European style inn, really) ever since it was the Brickskeller Saloon, and finally found an opening for one of my business trips to the District. After all, how can you beat staying at a place that's located in one of the most favorable locations in DC, for a rate that's... More

We stayed here 4 nights. Rooms were rather small but large enough for 2 queen beds. Bath with shower only was very large in relation to size of room. Breakfast is available for additional $5 per adult. Husband & 11 year old grandson checked it out but decided we should go out. There is. Bagels & etc around the corner... More

The baron hotel in washinghton dc is a miserable tramp. Starting with facts: The hotel has stairs to enter in no disabled person can enter. The elevator... More

Let me start by saying that I did not stay here, for which I am now so thankful. I booked a room at this establishment via booking.com at a rate that I felt was reasonably priced, given the 2 star rating for this "hotel". After a long day and arriving in the Dupont Circle area close to midnight, I went... More

First of all the cost is less than half of the local hotels and a quarter of the cost of the hotel where my conference was held. Dwight at the front desk is great and very helpful. Room was small but very clean, and a wonderful shower. The bar in the Hotel is amazing with about 500 beers to choose... More
