The hotel was conveniently placed, older building but fully equipped including air conditioning. Missed a coffee maker in the room but no problem borrowing an iron. Very friendly front desk staff. Loved the old fashioned elevator!

Don't go to this hotel. Very dirty and really bad service. When we looked at our room the air con unit was nearly on the pillows. Nowhere to hang your clothes not even a coaat hanger. When we complained we were told "what do you expect for the money you paid" We paid$150 a night. I am glad we were...

Found this hotel on Booking.com. Rate was very very reasonable for a 1 night stay, especially for Washington DC. Only downfall, the "Queen" room really only had a full size bed. The rooms were very small, but exceptionally clean. Bathroom looked as though it had recently been remodeled. Staff was very friendly. There is no parking at the hotel available,...

Visited Washington at conference time when at least 15,000 had arrived for one conference so the city was packed, accommodation scarce and very expensive. This place was pretty much a glorified backpackers with awful old beds, dreadful mattresses, a 1940's lift, paint peeling from walls in chunks and everything creaks. Needs a serious overhaul. $5 breakfast available - apparently fruit...

The location is great: convenient to DuPont Circle, Rock Creek Park, and the Metro. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and I had no problems with my reservation or check-in or check-out. On the downside: the lobby area is shabby, I strained my shoulder trying to open and close the manual doors on the antique elevator (I eventually...

Was notified at 830pm after landing from a flight that I was rebooked to their sister property - the windsor inn. It was too late to find an alternative, but there were zero accommodations made for THEIR error. To make it worse I was told "oh come on, it's a cheap bed and breakfast who cares" Horrible service, blatantly did...

I know that Washington is one of the places on earth that hotels are really expensive. As in Rio de Janeiro for instance. But charging 500 dollars a night to a guest house self called as hotel must be a joke. Just take a look at the picture I took and the furniture of my room. At least the room...

This is near DuPont Circle, so very conveniently located. We could cover all the monuments and National Mall on foot. This is between National Mall and Georgetown, so we covered both. Its a very small hotel, near the Indian and Indonesion Embassies. The room size is extremely small, but had TV and WiFi. The breakfast was not worth the $5...

The rooms are simple and clean and the hotel rates a 4 for those who are not put off by the untidy hall that serves as the front desk area. Fortunately the worst part of the hotel is where you enter and the staff is courteous and knowledgeable. It is in a very good area for eating and hanging out...

I chose this hotel because of location and cost. Was pleasantly surprised after reading a lot of the reviews. Yes it isn't 5 star but if you want 5 star pay for it!! Was welcomed by receptionist and given cards to our room (410). Lift is a bit of a challenge with the sprung door but I only used it...
