“Cardozo Guest House”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

Clean, comfortable, quiet and affordable. What more could one want? I should add that it is a good neighborhood, close to the metro, restaurants and clubs with many properties being restored around the neighborhood. I felt safe walking around at night. And I loved the owners collection of African Art. Wasn't expecting WIFI, but picked up an open network somewhere nearby.

Wonderful room at a great price, close to Metro in a vibrant, safe neighbourhood. Stayed for 2 nights and it was a bit weird that I didn't speak to or see anybody in the house but the in and out procedures were easy to follow.

I’ve stayed at the Cardozo House many times. I travel to D.C on business several times a year, mostly with meetings in College Park or Rockville, both easily accessible by the nearby Metro stations. I decline the standard D.C business hotels at double the cost of the Cardozo for the neighborhood comfort and authenticity of a room in an interesting 19th century house whose windows open. In the evening when my colleagues are in some grim suburban sports bar watching a Liechtenstein vs. Zimbabwe field hockey match, I am in a jazz bar on U Street or a great restaurant in Dupont Circle an easy walk from the Cardozo. Comfortable beds, a quiet guesthouse, a neighborhood location close to the Metro, a surfeit of great restaurants -- thanks to Remi the owner for offering the experience of being a Washingtonian every time I visit.

The Good:
We really liked the location. It was close to a metro stop and felt safe. I liked the idea of staying in a residential area versus a typical hotel. The washer/dryer was handy.

The Less Good:
We stayed in the apartment room. It has a lot of potential, and we could tell the past owners must have taken pride in it, but it could now do with a thorough cleaning and some cosmetic maintenance. Several areas of the kitchen were sticky and the sofa had an odd smell. There were chunks of wall missing that were covered by tape. The vents were filthy. Be aware there is no individual thermostat in the room so you are at the mercy of the upstairs guests. The shower stall was odd - the shower door no longer worked, but it was left hanging and a shower curtain was added. After reveiwing Trip Advisor again while we were there, I didn't think asking the management company would be very helpful. I recommend a thorough scrubbing and maintenance work. If it were clean, I'd haven given a 3.

I stayed in the Pembroke room during my week long trip to DC. It was perfect. It is only 2 blocks from the Metro stop, which is great when carrying your luggage or when coming 'home' after a long day sightseeing. U Street is a pretty vibrant area, lots of shops, restaurants, etc. I never felt unsafe, even when walking back late at night. For the location, their rates are crazy reasonable!

Traveling to Washington DC alone for a conference, I was concerned about safety, location, and value. From the booking process to checking out, I was extremely satisfied and have decided to return next year. The room was inviting and clean, the neighborhood offers grocery stores and coffee shops. The National Mall is about a 15-20 minute (safe neighborhoods) walk and the Metro is about 2 blocks from the guesthouse. I highly recommend Cardozo Guest House.
