Overall we were happy with the apartment. It is one level down so not a lot of steps when bringing your suitcases. It was within walking distance to metro. There are steps to navigate while crossing a large road which was a bit tricky with the kids and a large stroller. It has a small dishwasher, most pots, pans, dishes, and silverware you need. It isn't a fancy place but it is comfortable and well kept. Shower water pressure was nice which was appreciated. There is a convenience store nearby if something is needed. We also like using the guest netflix account which had some kids cartoons and movies for the adults after the kids went to bed. The main bed was very comfortable but the couch which folded down into a bed is better for kids or very not fussy adults. We did a lot of things in DC and just walked to the Metro and took it just ten minute ride to the monuments and museums. The free parking was an added bonus.
