This was a nice place to stay, centrally located to everywhere we needed to be and with a good selection of eateries nearby.


Nice place, not too fancy but well kept and in a great location. Parking is $30 per day which I did not know before arriving, available only on first come first serve basis. There is street parking around too, but hard to get a spot and you cannot park overnight on weekdays.


Location is perfect when you're in DC for sightseeing (10 minutes walk from the WhiteHouse), though when it comes to public transport the closest subway station is located >1km away. The hotel itself was fine,good value for money,although wouldn't mind if the staff was more kind, helfpfull and client rather than self oriented....


Not the best hotel, but the location was GREAT! bring your own sheets and pillows if you plan to get cozy, but great for people constantly on the move.

The Hotel is very good for a short stay because you don't need a subway ticket. The White House is just a 10 minute walk away and there are lots of restaurants around. Our room was very small, it was hard to fit the suitcases in there (we were 2, 1 suitcase each), but in consideration of the money we payed and the location it is acceptable. Also our bathroom had seen better times, which you could see at the sink or shower head. Still the service was outstanding! We would definitely come back!

Ideal location for people who want to walk around the Embassy row and museum areas.


It's cheap in a good location. You get what you pay for. Staff were a little rude, didn't really speak in sentences. Customer service 1 out of 10. A smile costs nothing. Bathroom was nice and quite new. Good size shower. Bedroom carpet was dirty. Bed was very very creaky, if one person moves the other will wake. Windows painted closed. Awful scented plug in air freshener. Bed linen and towels were clean.

everything was great! Simple breakfast but sufficient. Location was ideal, my group and I enjoyed walking so it was alright for us to walk 30mins or more to each attractions. We were also warmly greeted by Cookie and she gave us good information when asked. Recommended!

Room smiled very strongly of cleaning products. AC is nice. Parking is first come first serve $30. 20min walk north of white house. If you booked the wrong day, they might be able to change the dates on your reservation. Save during the day; I wouldn't walk around at night. Closest good people zza is domino's. WiFi only works in the stairway and lobby.
