Super Convenient Location + Excellent Customer Service
I have very much enjoyed my stay here! I have rented this apartment in DC for over two years for a number of reasons. The location is unbelievable, especially if you have work on or near the Hill, or want to do your sightseeing on the National Mall. No exaggeration, if you walk out the front door of the building you are looking directly at the Supreme Court building. My commute is a 7 minute walk, and it is about a 12 minute walk to either the Capital South metro stop or Union Station. The Capitol, the National Mall, the Supreme Court, and the Library of Congress are just as near. Eastern Market and the wonderful restaurants of Barracks Row are about 7 or 8 blocks away - roughly a 15 minute walk. This rental has been especially great for a young single woman like me - this building is in one of the safest, cleanest neighborhoods in the District. There is a Capitol Police guard station directly across the street and on the north and south corners of the block. I have never once felt unsafe walking alone late at night in this area. The apartment has high ceilings and plenty of natural light from three large windows. It is nicely furnished with a large television, fast internet, a ceiling fan, and all major appliances, including a combined washer/dryer, fridge, dishwasher, and oven. The floors are hardwood with an area rug, and a tiled area in the kitchenette and in the bathroom. The water pressure is excellent and the taps can be turned to scalding hot if you like. There is ample storage space for a unit of this size - there are three closets, one dresser, and a TV stand/cabinet. The building itself is quiet and the hallways stay clean. The other renters tend to be friendly. It is an older building to be sure, but it has been well taken care of and modernized. If you rent an apartment on the east side of the building your view will be of an alleyway, but you will hear virtually no noise from traffic and other noise pollution typical of the city - very quiet! Most importantly, the Capitol Hill Stay owner is very responsive and accommodating. Any time there has been a maintenance issue it has been resolved either the same day, usually within a few hours, or the very next day. I have enjoyed living here!
