Pros: Clean, Good location,Good Wifi, Good value Cons: Loud A/C and bathroom fan, Stairs at entrance - not suitable for those with a disability, prams or heavy luggage. Despite reading some bad reviews, I decided to proceed with booking The Baron anyway, for 2 reasons: 1) I was not too concerned about the issues noted, and 2) there was a... More

The people here are very friendly. We were there for a show and it was so convenient to stay there as well. The room was a basic room but was very comfy, and those beds were just WOW. The bartenders are amazing and recommended an excellent pizza place just a couple of blocks up. We are in DC frequently for... More

I wanted a low-cost and clean hotel near Dupont Circle. I was amazed when I found this one! The location is easy walking distance from the Metro. The front desk clerks were super nice and helpful. The room was small, but spotless (as was the bathroom). I checked in and took a short nap. Good thing I did, because when... More

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
