This boutique hotel is located not far from Dupont Circle and is an easy commute to the National Mall. It is walking distance from the trendy restaurants on U Street. Parking was not an issue for me, and the S2 bus stops on the next corner. Everything from carpets to couches shows signs of wear, but everything is clean. I... More

The good points: - the hotel is located in a good area on a leafy street with restaurants on 17th street. Also about 4 blocks to Dupont metro station and more good restaurants. - The rooms were clean. The bad points - gentleman... More

This is a nice hotel in a safe area. Smallish rooms (by American standards), but we didn’t mind too much as the rooms were very clean. The rooms have a wardrobe, desk, chair and aircon but there was no fridge or safe. The staff were pleasant and helpful. There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room, however, tea coffee...

This is a very small, but cosy and comfortable hotel. Located in a great, safe and chic neighborhood, very close to Metro station and with buses across the street. Also restaurants and convenience store/supermarket very near. The rooms are small, but EXTRA clean and very comfortable beds. Bathrooms are big compared to the room and very clean. It doesn't have...

The area is good because the bars are soo far away from the museums, at this hotel you are walking distance from both in the middle of the long walk in between them. Staff were fine, always handsome men. No breakfast which is a shame. Room was soo small but weren't in there a lot so didnt matter. No fridge... More

Stayed in DC for 2 nights out of a 4 week holiday, and by far the worst hotel out of the 9 we stayed at. I understand it was a budget hotel but literally nothing worked; our shower was only hot half the time, the TV was fuzzy and constantly cutting in and out, the heating system didn't work and...
