We stayed four nights. The hotel is located near (walking distance) Dupont Circle. Reception is a bit slow but friendly and accurate. The building is old but the room is OK and has all it needs. Not really big but adequate. A great asset is the bar downstairs with the many different kinds of beer (200?) and also bar food.... More

Good value for money, although there is a pub next door, still managed to get a good night sleep. Twin beds are big and comfortable. Good location with easy access to metro. Not the best hotel in terms of facilities but if you are looking to crash there after a long day of exploring D.C it is not bad at... More

I would have rated this hotel atleast 4 for the ambiance and feel of downtown DC.. but first impression's last. We have a confirmed booking via booking.com so we got there early coming from an early flight. We do understand that it is hotel policy that check-in time is at 3PM---but when we were at front desk the person in... More

We took the baron hotel for 3 nights. Thanks to TripAdvisor i knew i won't be disappointed. We've been here a couple with 2 teenagers and there was no complain from the kids side. The location is excellent very close to doupon circle. We also could walk to the mall. The rooms are very clean. The great surprise was the... More

(Good, rather then very good, but better than average) Nice hotel about 10 mins' walk from DuPont Circle underground station. Perfect for what I wanted, although 2 downsides.... Wifi not available in all bedrooms as advertised: 4th floor room NO, but 3rd floor room YES, although good reception in the Reception area & outside front door (smoking area). Secondly, I... More

Within a mile (walking distance) of many destinations in town, I thought the location for the price was very good. Restaurant & bar downstairs and market & food around the corner. The room is not fancy or very big, but we use our rooms for sleep not as a destination and we slept like babies. With the bar downstairs we... More

The hotel was conveniently placed, older building but fully equipped including air conditioning. Missed a coffee maker in the room but no problem borrowing an iron. Very friendly front desk staff. Loved the old fashioned elevator!

Don't go to this hotel. Very dirty and really bad service. When we looked at our room the air con unit was nearly on the pillows. Nowhere to hang your clothes not even a coaat hanger. When we complained we were told "what do you expect for the money you paid" We paid$150 a night. I am glad we were... More

Found this hotel on Booking.com. Rate was very very reasonable for a 1 night stay, especially for Washington DC. Only downfall, the "Queen" room really only had a full size bed. The rooms were very small, but exceptionally clean. Bathroom looked as though it had recently been remodeled. Staff was very friendly. There is no parking at the hotel available,... More

Visited Washington at conference time when at least 15,000 had arrived for one conference so the city was packed, accommodation scarce and very expensive. This place was pretty much a glorified backpackers with awful old beds, dreadful mattresses, a 1940's lift, paint peeling from walls in chunks and everything creaks. Needs a serious overhaul. $5 breakfast available - apparently fruit... More
