Bed comfort was exceptional. Transportation options were numerous. Walking at night was safe. Central AC was refreshing after a day of touring. House has another half bath on main level for guest use. Vibrant neighborhood. Plenty of dining options close. Freshly updated historic home. Would highly recommend a stay here. A great value close to National Mall area.
Joel's place is clean, quiet and close to whatever you might need. Checking in was super easy. The room facing the street has a great size and gets a lot of sunlight. Bed is huge and comfy. Did not meet Joel in person as I arrived late most days, but he replied promptly to whatever questions I had and was kind enough to let me do a late check out, as my plane was leaving in the afternoon. There are plenty of nice restaurants and coffee shops in the vicinity, a Giant supermarket and a metro stop 2 blocks away. If you're in the mood, you can even walk to the Mall, as it's an easy, 25min stroll. Otherwise a $5-7 Uber can take you all the way to VA. Would definitely stay again!
Joel's place is very classy. The room by the front is very spacious. Everything was clean. I especially enjoyed the proximity of the apartment to businesses in the Downtown and Shaw area. The street is quiet and clean. Everything went so well that I did not need to contact Joel all but once and when I did he was responsive. I would recommend his spot to anyone.
