Iv stayed here twice now, and am very pleased with the staff and their service. Last time I lost my phone on the metro. They did everything they could to help me stay in contact with people till I could get to the store and get a new phone. Their service is excellent. Clean rooms, very nice staff, and I LOVE the older style elevator. Close to metro, go puff friendly. Parking is ruff but we made it work. They have paper that explains all parking options. Has a bar and comedy club inside. Everything was just wonderful, and they are very accommodating. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

VERY basic--small rooms, old decor, few amenities. But excellent location: 5 min. from Metro, 2 min. from Rock Creek Park (great for running), many restaurants in this lively neighborhood. Bathroom was clean, bed was comfy. Reminded me of an old European hotel. By far the best bargain in DC, if you don't mind bare-bones lodging.

Surprised at first, not sure if it would be good. It was way nicer and cleaner than the other hotels we stayed at during our trip. The room had a Pergo floor and my grand-daughter spilt Coca-Cola, I dried it but since it had rained and my white socks were wet I wiped it more to get rid of any stickiness. After I looked at the bottom of my socks and they were still white. Highly recommend this place but take the 3rd of 4th floor if you retire early, there is a bar and restaurant on the first floor.

Good location, near Dupont Circle Metro Station.

Pros: Location
Cons: Maintenance of the building/rooms, and upgrading of furniture. Replace bathroom appliances.
Location: about 2 1/2 blocks from Dupont Circle and the Metro stop. Lots of local restaurants and bars in the area, all within walking distance.
Hotel is old, European elevator (small), maintenance is done poorly (bathroom door had no normal handle/latch. They installed a sliding chain lock because the door hung so poorly it would not meet the latch hole. There was a gap at the top of the door frame). Shower is small and uses partial curtain and partial sliding glass door. Bathroom lighting was terrible in that it was blinding. They used 100 watt bulbs in all fixtures. Caulking and painting was done poorly. Furniture is old and stained. For the money I would not stay there again. For young people, there is a club in the hotel called the "Bier Baron" that apparently has a good reputation in the city. It got quite a bit of traffic at night. They have food and entertainment as well as beer, wine, and liquor.
