Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this apartment for our recent family trip to D.C. My husband and I and our three kids (16, 16, and 20) stayed here for 5 nights. We had initially planned to stay in a hotel, but I am so glad we found this apartment instead. The cost was affordable enough, in relation to a hotel, that we were able to add an extra night in D.C. to explore and have fun. I can't express enough how wonderful this apartment was....impeccably clean, well appointed, spacious, and convenient. It was like being at home! Everything worked perfectly, the entire week. The beds were soft and comfortable with plenty of pillows, the fold out couch was comfortable (great mattress for a pullout by the way), the supplies (trash bags, towels, pots and pans, dishes, etc.) were plentiful, the wifi was fast, and the view of the D.C. skyline was incredible. Mark at Zen Hospitality was gracious, welcoming, and met my every question prior to our stay with promptness and kindness. The staff at Ballston Avalon Place always greeted us pleasantly. We didn't take advantage of any of the amenities in the building except the pool, but that was great as well and staffed with a real lifeguard. Parking was a breeze, as the garage is attached to the building (and a bargain in D.C. at only $10.00 extra for our large SUV). There was a convenient grocery/deli just around the corner. If we ever revisit Washington, I would definitely rent this apartment again. Highly recommended to anyone and everyone traveling to this area. Thanks Mark and Zen Hospitality for helping to make our vacation wonderful by providing such excellent accommodations!

Excellent service, property, and location

  • 5 of 5

We were two families - combined 4 adults and 2 teens - visiting for a week of some work and lots of sightseeing. We chose this property for the 3b/2b layout, location and the great reviews. We booked it 6 months in advance and had last week a fantastic visit to D.C.! Mark was efficient and responsive, provided clear directions and FAQs before arrival, check-in was a breeze, and the property is exactly as pictured on-line. We had plenty of room and never felt cramped with 6 of us moving around the space. The location to the metro was wonderful, a grocery store was just blocks away, lots of light with great views from the balcony, and plenty of restaurants within walking distance. With 2 sets of keys we could split up into groups and were able to use the gym, pool, and other ammenities individually without any problems. It always was very quiet (no noisy neighbors or street noise) and the beds were comfortable with nice bedding. Kitchen was well supplied (though no tupperware so bring/buy ziplocs!), the apartment was clean, and there were plenty of towels and extra linens. We did some laundry late in the week so the washer/dryer was a great perk. Finally, we had reliable, hi-speed internet which was ciritical for us all. Highly recommend this property!

Great apartment with wonderful amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Arlington was an enjoyable experience. Zen Hospitality was easy to work with and provided great service. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. It was stocked with everything we needed during our stay. In fact, we loved the cookware so much that we bought the same set as soon as we arrived home! The location of the apartment was ideal. Lots of restaurants and grocery stores in the area. Very close proximity to D.C. and Reagan Airport. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the apartment to any and everyone. We had one small issue with the toilet, but Mark and Barbara made sure it was taken care of in a timely manner. They were great to work with. We will definitely be back!

Great apartment in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the ballston place apartment in Arlington so a slightly different set up from some of the photos shown I think . The apartment was very spacious with two great sized bedrooms and bathrooms . We were two adults and two kids and had tonnes of space. The apartment was clean and tidy when we arrived and was well equipped with washer/dryer and kitchen stuff . There was a great view off the balcony and we found the apartment lovely and quiet. The block itself was very well attended to - clean and nicely furnished. The pool was a great bonus after a hot day of sightseeing and our boys loved the club room . The convenience store in the basement was very handy . The location of the apartment was spot on - the park opposite was great for our boys and the supermarket two blocks away very handy . The metro stop was a block away and so great for dc sightseeing . Couldn't fault dealings with mark prior to and during our stay - we would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment

Clean and quiet perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end, this property was perfect for our visit. Mark from Zen was friendly and helpful, always available, and accommodated our questions and needs quickly. The property was exactly as described: clean, centrally located, and had many amenities. Everything we needed was here and we felt right at home. The front desk staff was kind and helpful as well. I would stay here again for business or pleasure and highly recommend Zen properties as a go-to for travel needs. Thank you!

A Great First Experience

  • 5 of 5

We brought our 15 year old grandson to see the sights of Arlington and DC. (His first time) We live in a small town, the boy was blown away by the view in the condo, the pool and the hot tub. The layout was perfect for us. Big enough not to feel crowded, small enough to be together when we wanted. This place is very clean. It passed my test and I am so very fussy! Metro is down the block. Coffee shops and cafes galore! We spent a good amount to time in DC, I think the boy got a good insight to our history and the wars we fought. He spoke to a survivor of the Holocaust. he learned and understood WW2, Hitler, D Day, Pearl Harbor..Nam. We felt safe, secure and content in this unit. Every American should bring their young people here to see and learn, and you should stay at the Avalon!!! We are planning to come back.
