There are numerous grocery stores, restaurants and high end shopping areas within walking distance.
Capitol Hill Historic District takes its name from the hill, which rises in the center of the Federal City and extends eastward. Stretching easterly behind the Capitol Building along wide avenues lies the residential area known as Capitol Hill. Capitol Hill, one of the oldest residential communities in Washington, has grown from a small boarding house community for members of Congress to an area of more than 150 squares embracing a number of separate neighborhoods.
In the early years of the Republic few Congressmen wished to establish permanent residence in the city. Instead, most preferred to live in boarding houses within walking distance of the Capitol. Nothing remains of this community, and the area closest to the Capitol contains the Library of Congress, the Supreme Court, and the House and Senate Office buildings.
Capitol Hill is the largest residential historic district in the District of Columbia. Almost every street is composed of row houses of different stylistic varieties and periods forming a continuous wall broken only by street intersections. Side by side exist early 19th century manor houses, Federal townhouses, small frame dwellings, ornate Italianate bracketed houses and the late 19th century press brick row houses with their often whimsical decorative elements combining Richardsonian Romanesque, Queen Anne, and Eastlakian motifs.
Within the Historic District, you will find the most luxurious accommodation in the one of the best areas in Washington DC with many restaurants, cafes and places to shop, including the Eastern Market, the city's largest farmers' market and flea market.
This elegantly furnished one bedroom apartment approximately 1000 sq feet with one bathroom and fully equipped kitchen with a small backyard seating area, provides great hotel alternative within walking distance to US Capitol, US Senate, Eastern Market, Union Station and the National Mall.
You will find sleeping for up to four people and enough room to host the entire family, outdoor deck and living room with an eat in kitchen.

Comfortable retreat after long days sightseeing!
Lovely area and everything we needed for our DC visit. Perfect for my husband and I. Very walkable to many sites and close to metro.
I look forward to returning...the apartment was very clean, secure and in a great location. The owner was more than willing to help with anything. The only negative was noise from the upstairs apartment. I could hear every footstep. Not really bothersome, but if you’re a light sleeper, get a white noise app and all will be fine. Fully equipped kitchen, nice sheets, pillows and towels. A Big Bang for the buck!
Cozy Capitol Hill Apartment
My husband I stayed in this cozy Capitol Hill apartment for 6 nights and felt very at home and comfortable. The apartment is located on a lovely, tree lined street of row houses. The area and neighborhood were always quiet and peaceful. The apartment is located within easy walking distance of coffeehouses, restaurants, bars, and a Trader Joe's. It is also an easy 20 - 30 minute walk to the National Mall, or if you don't feel like walking, an Uber ride was never more than 2 - 3 minutes away. We rented a car for a day to drive out to Loudon County (wineries & breweries!). There are several car rental companies located at Union Station which is also an easy 15 - 20 minute walk from the apartment.
Ed, the owner responded immediately to questions and keeps the apartment well stocked with all of the basic provisions. I definitely recommend this apartment and would stay here again.
Great location, lovely space
I had the pleasure of staying here for a week with my 3 daughters. Ed always responded quickly when I had a question or just to welcome is to DC after we'd landed from our flight. The Eastern Market is awesome, and very close. The market is even more exciting if you visit on a Saturday or Sunday because the vendors are out as well.
We spent each day touring the city, museums, galleries, monuments too. It was easy to get around using both metro and Lyft (or Uber) or waking too.
Thank you so much for a wonderful visit!
great location, charming neighborhood
This is indeed a gem. A comfortable apartment in a wonderful location in a charming neighborhood. Would rent again.
Excellent D.C. Location
This Capitol Hill residence was not only a great location for walking to
the Capitol, Supreme Court, Library of Congress and more easily, it was beautifully decorated. The kitchen is perfect and outfitted for preparing meals between tours. The bedroom is comfortable and the living room is quaint. The neighborhood is BEAUTIFUL, quiet and very pleasant to walk
The owner is very helpful and communicates well!
