We booked a room for Thanksgiving. After dinner with family, we arrived at 7:40 pm. The room we had reserved had not been cleaned. There were klennex scattered around the room, filled wastebaskets, garbage bags from the former occupants, and bed linens used and piled on the bed. We immediately called the "after hours" phone number that had been provided,... More

We truly enjoyed staying in this fun Columbia Heights neighborhood. The guest quarters were quiet and well equipped with everything we might need. We didn't use the downstairs kitchen but it was a nice touch if we'd been staying in. The bed was outstanding, service was good, bathroom was very nice. Will probably stay here many more times while visiting... More

Although Asante Sana is not a regular hotel, you would not find anything much to complain about. The location is fantastic- walking distance from Columbia heights metro station and bus connections practically at your door step. There are enough restaurants in all budget ranges for all meals- we did not have to do any repeat visit to any restaurant during... More

We booked a room in the guest house, which is the basement level. It was a very charming and sweet establishment when you go in. You are allowed to use the shared amenities available for all guests like the kitchenette and the coin laundry room, which is unique. All entries are used via keypad, so there isn't a key card...

This property was well located and very well maintained. This was our second visit and we were not disappointed. Both times the room has been clean and well appointed. A problem with the hair dryer was quickly resolved. All staff we communicated with were friendly and eager to help. We will return.

We stayed here in January during Snowzilla 2016. This is a converted row house in the wonderful Columbia Heights neighborhood. This is not staffed 24-7 like a normal hotel, but does have normal cleaning services during the day. We arrived after the staff had left, but I had called ahead and they told me how to find our room.

Asante Sana is a converted row house in a great location in Columbia Heights, close to the Metro and shopping. The price was right for a recent business trip, however they unexpectedly charged me for the stay almost a month in advance. The day before I arrived they attempted to charge me again, but fortunately the card number had changed.... More

Stayed there twice because the rooms, bathrooms are clean. Staff is very friendly if you need them. Living room and kitchens are at your disposal. I stayed there with my 11 year old son so it's children friendly. Neighborhood is great and easy to get to subway or buses. You are autonomous in finding your room and in staying there.
