Great place and location!

Great place and location. I enjoyed myself.

Great place and location!

The Capital Hill Cottage is in a great neighborhood and walkable to the Capitol, Eastern Market, Metro, Trader Joe's, dinning, and there are bike rentals on the corner (100 yds away) if you do not want to walk. The owners came down to make sure everything was okay shortly after we arrived. The cottage was very comfortable, the AC was amazing, there was plenty of room and the bedroom closet was perfect. The kitchen fully stocked with everything you needed for cooking, storing leftovers, making coffee and having a glass of wine. The washer and dryer were large and pods were available to get us started. Couple things to be aware of - there is a TV but you will not be watching the news or other TV shows unless you bring an HDMI cable and have an account with a provider (hulu, Netflix...). However, you are on vacation, why are you watching TV. The other challenge was staying connected to our AT&T service or the Wi-Fi in the bedroom (back of the cottage). But who wants to answer their phone while sleeping. Also, you could hear the resident above walking, but they were in bed early and up around 7:30am. With all that said, the cottage worked perfectly for us and when we are back in DC, we will stay there again.

Convenient Capitol Hill Location!

This apartment had everything we needed for an 8-night stay. Cozy living room, and table for eating meals. Full kitchen. Comfortable bed. As noted, it's a 10-minute walk to the Union Station Metro stop. Easy 4-block walk to Whole Foods and CVS. We would stay here again.

Just right!

We enjoyed our stay in this property. We walked to the Capitol and Bible Museum. We enjoyed the Eastern Market and nearby restaurants. Our favorite was Hank's Oyster Bar.
The property includes plenty of space for two couples. The property is clean and quiet. We definitely hope to visit again.

Fantastic Time!

We stayed here Sat-Tues, 2 adults & 3 kids ages 6-12, and we had a fantastic time! The apartment is downstairs, just below street level, in a beautiful, brick sidewalk neighborhood. We were very close to the Eastern Market metro stop, which made it easy to spend the morning walking past the Library of Congress and Supreme Court to get to the Mall, then hop on the metro when the kids were tired after a day of monuments & museums. The kids got familiar with the streets & shops and were proud of themselves for navigating, and we loved getting familiar with the shops & restaurants in the area. Lovely hosts, lovely apartment & lovely visit!

Amazing space!

Great place and in a location that helps you be mobile throughout the city.

Very clean and comfortable!

The studio was very clean and comfortable. The location was excellent with the Metro very near and plenty of restaurants and even a market nearby. Thanks!

Comfortable, attractive apartment near nice restaurants and public transit.

Free H Street Trolley to Union Station is in easy walking distance. On-site parking space is small, but very handy. Full kitchen including washer/drier.

Great place in DC.

Would stay here and recommend. Very clean, quite, great bed and linens. Fully equipped kitchen. Great location and. Lovely neighborhood.

Capitol Hill Basement Apartment

A well appointed apartment in an excellent location, within an easy walk to Union Station. It's a pity that the wifi signal does not extend to the sleeping area, an issue that could be easily fixed. Ellen, the owner, was extremely helpful with directions to various places of interest.

This was a really convenient place to stay for a conference at the Marriott Woodley Park. I stayed here with a friend and was curious about the toddler bed, but it ended up working out just fine (I'm 5'5" and a side sleeper). It was actually really comfortable. The room it's in is a bit stuffy, but it's a basement apartment. Check-in was super easy, and it was nice to have kitchen with a fridge etc.

Everything was great and we truly enjoyed ourselves. All of the accommodations were perfect and we will definitely be staying here again.

Highly Recommended, exceptional Value for DC!

Prolly one of my favorite AirBnB spaces I’ve stayed in. Super clean, private space. Seems to be recently remodeled. Couch bed was very comfortable. Plenty of towels and soap. Never saw the owners but check-in was easy and communication was great. At one point some of my things were moved across the room. Would highly recommend. I think this is an exceptional value in DC.

Definatly recommended

The place is accurately described and as in the pictures, no surprises! The host were amazingly hospitable. Definitely recommend, and would be back!


Thank you so much for such an outstanding place and service. Great communication and amazing location. The owners walked the extra mile to ensure I felt like home. Highly recommended. I will come back for sure.

Great space and location!

Cute, quaint space with lots of personality. Great area. The market is fantastic and the proximity to sights is wonderful.

Perfect and wonderful!

Perfect for our needs. Unit had everything you would need to be comfortable for a long stay if you desired. The hosts were incredibly responsive, check in was easy, tons of amenities. Also, the listing pictures don't do the space justice!

Everything was wonderful. Thank you!
