My son chose Washington, D.C. for his high school graduation trip since he'll be studying Government - Policy and Politics in college. Staying in the apartment was a much better experience than staying in a hotel. We used a parking permit and were able to park out front or within the block. We talked with neighbors out walking dogs and enjoyed the local markets for a few items. We were able to walk to the Capitol, House and Senate buildings, the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress buildings (Jefferson bldg is stunning inside), restaurants on Penn Ave., Eastern Market and the Newseum. Uber was wonderful for trips back to the apartment when our legs were giving out! There was always a car available within minutes. Bike rentals are all around Capitol Hill, too. Air conditioning in the apartment worked perfectly which was important since the weather was close to 100 degrees while we were there. Beds were very comfortable. Owners accessible. We typically got out sightseeing for the day then returned to the apartment for a couple of hours to get our second wind before heading back out for more sightseeing into the late hours. It was one of the best family trips we've ever taken. Highly recommend 511B!

Great location. Perfect for our family of five.

This is a nice light semi basement apt near to the capital. The beds were wonderfully comfy. We were able to park with a permit and walk or metro most places. I would definitely rent again

Beautiful, clean, and quiet. Hope to return.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect rental for visiting DC. Location was ideal--just a couple blocks from the Capitol building and the national mall (you literally can see the Capitol building when you walk out of the property), and several blocks to DC's Eastern Market and the metro (and lots of restaurants to choose from). If you don't want to venture out on metro, the location is so central that using uber was a breeze and very affordable. That said, we did a ton of walking. The apartment is beautifully decorated and up-to-date. Comfortable, clean, and quiet. Was great to come home to the apartment at the end of the day and be able to relax like we were home. Worked out better than a hotel for sure.

Great location, needs updating

  • 2 of 5

Great location! Very safe area, close to stores and the capital. I understood it would be loud with the upstairs neighbors. They are a very nice family. The condition of the unit was less than I expected. It really needs updating, carpet..painting etc.
