Cynthia was an excellent host! The place was clean, comfortable, and cozy. Really enjoyed the location (a 10 min walk from Howard University) close to all the D.C. area sites. Overall excellent stay and will be back!

Cynthia was a great host!

  • 4 of 5

Cynthia was a great host, and she helped to make our stay comfortable and convenient. Never having been to Washington DC before, we were a little lost. But Cynthia gave us directions and advise on the Metro system, such that we had no trouble getting around. The provided food and snacks and made us feel very welcome. When there was a problem caused by some renovations that were not completed in time, Cynthia bent over backwards to accommodate us. The only complaint I have is that we couldn't get the apartment cooled off enough for my taste. There was an AC unit in one bedroom that just couldn't quite cool the living room/kitchen area. That being said, we were there on July 4, which was hot and humid, and was the worker who was doing the renovations had been coming in and out all day. It would probably be OK for a normal person, but I like it to be VERY cold. Other than that, it was wonderful!

Not the best.

  • 1 of 5

In general I felt like the apartment wasn't clean. The apartment as a whole could use some attention. It has a musty smell. I guess to be expected since the "AC/fans" have water in them to help cool the apartment, lots of moisture in the air from them. The worst part is the bathroom. The removable shower head is still broken(since 2015) see other review. To turn the water on full force will flood the bathroom floor because the shower doors don't shut all the way. Even with the extra globs of caulking that has been added. The bathroom door will not close all the way so no privacy. The current pictures of the bathroom should be updated to what you really get when you arrive! The bathroom ceiling also has a water leak as well, that has attempted to be repaired. We left two days early because I was getting sick with a sinus infection & ear ache. Cynthia was nice and helpful. She did have breakfast items in the fridge like other reviews. I just wish the pictures of the bathroom would have shown me what I was really getting. Because I would have stayed somewhere else. That is my review of the apartment.

Great location and amenities

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious apartment with comfortable beds and nice decor. The kitchen was well equipped and stocked for breakfast when we arrived. Cynthia the host was helpful with recommendations and directions to restaurants and the metro stop. She even provided metro cards, so we didn't have to purchase our own. We just added the money we needed for the trip. The closet metro stop was only about 4 blocks away. Highly recommended!
