    About the Neighborhood:
    Brookland, referred to by the locals as ‘DC's best kept secret', is away from the hustle and bustle of the city and only 3 stops on the Metro from Union station, moments from downtown, the mall and monuments. The neighborhood has lots of historic interest and is home of the National Basilica. Its a wonderful area to walk, run or just stroll. Colonel Brooks our famous local pubs, (great beer and food!) an organic market and other bars / restaurants all nearby.

This is a nice and comfortable apartment in a nice neighboorhood - perfect for two. Clean and modern. Metro and great organic supermarket is a fifteen minute walk away, and a CVS is even closer to the house. We had everything we needed, and we really enjoyed our stay. The apartment makes a great base for exploring DC. more

And I was introduced to the French press coffee maker that I have currently ordered! It was a perfect cup of coffee!!!... more
