The Apartment

Guests will enjoy this apartment with its great location just to the east of the United States Capitol. The 8th Street Apartment is a one bedroom English basement-level apartment in the Eastern Market neighborhood on Capitol Hill

This one bedroom apartment features a queen-sized bed in the bedroom and a full-sized sleeper sofa in the living room and can accommodate up to 3 guests.  The bathroom with shower (no tub) is located off of the bedroom, and there is a galley-style kitchen - perfect for budget-minded travelers and those who would like to cook light meals and save on dining out for each meal. 


The 8th Street Apartment offers easy access to all that Capitol Hill has for visitors to enjoy, and is approximately a 10-15 minute walk to the U.S. Capitol Building, Library of Congress, Supreme Court and the National Mall. The Eastern Market Blue/Orange line metro is a quick 5 minutes from this property as well, which can take you to many other locations throughout Washington D.C. with ease. The Eastern Market neighborhood features over 35 restaurants and one of the country's oldest operating fresh food markets. Our guests enjoy browsing the famed Eastern Market area, especially on the weekends in good weather, when the farmers and flea market are in full swing. If your plan is to take a bike ride around the city, there are several Capital Bikeshare stations nearby!


Check in time is after 2:00 p.m. and check out is 11:00 a.m. promptly. In many cases, you may be able to arrange an earlier time for luggage drop off.   


Reserved off-street parking is available for an additional $20 per night, plus D.C. taxes.


Rates are seasonal with Spring and Fall being peak seasons for our area.  A three-night minimum reservation is required at all times.  Rates do not include a $75 cleaning fee, the 14.5% DC lodging taxes or the $10 reservation fee.  All of our homes are smoke free.  Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate guest pets.

Reviews for 8th Street Apartment


Perfect for what we needed!

We were in DC for a long weekend to 'see the sites' and this place was perfect for what we needed, we literally walked everywhere even though I think the metro was not far. Took about 20 minutes to walk to the Capital Building. A new Trader Joe's and lots of fun little restaurants not far either. Lou was a fabulous host, very welcoming and helpful. The apartment itself was fine - but it was a very basic basement apartment. November 21, 2017 Susan (Guest)

8th St. Apartment

The apartment is in a great location, and has all the amenities you need except for a washing machine. There is a dryer, however, and the host will do laundry for you as required. The bathroom is a little small, but the shower is excellent. We would certainly stay here again. April 13, 2017 Howard Somers (Guest)

Excellent for our purpose!

Our hostess gave us a warm welcome. The apartemnt space is entered through a lovely garden area. The location near Eastern Market is great, so one can easily walk to nearby restaurants. We stayed there to be near our daughter, so it was perfect for our purpose. October 10, 2016 Nancy (Guest)

Great location!

Great location - right next to Eastern Market with food markets, flea market (weekend), restaurants and coffee shop as well as so close to the Capital (about 8 blocks away). It is in a very walkable neighborhood. The pictures are representative of the unit and the garden is wonderful. Communication was easy. We really appreciated the hostess accommodating us with less than 24 hours notice due to needing to extend our stay in DC for a few days at the last moment. September 29, 2016 Alex (Guest)

Great Time!

Just reporting in on the great time we had in Washington, DC, last weekend and in the 8th Street apartment. Lou and her husband were perfect hosts and the apartment easy and comfortable. Lou’s gardens and outdoor area combined with the spacious and gracious corner lot the one bedroom apartment a wonderful place to stay. We look forward to staying there again in July.

The location, the hosts, the apartment itself: we couldn't ask for more! It just doesn't get any better than this in Capitol Hill, as apartment is separate from a gorgeous home on two lots on the corner. Short, short walks to Eastern Market, Lincoln Park, excellent restaurants. The apartment was nicely furnished with everything we needed, including a huge walk-in closet that served as a grandkid hide-away for fun. Gorgeously designed garden right outside our door with places to sit and enjoy all. Extremely private. Wonderful hosts: knowledgeable, helpful, and never intrusive. We've booked again for next month. Highly recommend. June 9, 2016 Mary Collopy (Guest)

Cozy basement apartment in Capitol Hill

This apartment was perfect for our long weekend in DC. The place is a small 1 bedroom basement apartment, with a small kitchen and bathroom. The interior is a little dated, but the bed was comfy and the apartment was a perfect jumping off point for exploring this awesome neighborhood. The neighborhood is awesome and walkable to the mall and many sites. It's also close to the metro. The host Lou and her husband greeted us on arrival and gave us some tips on the neighborhood. We also paid for the parking space, which was off-street in their drive way. I would highly recommend this place. November 6, 2015 Susan vonThun (Guest)
