With all the competition in DC for hotels, you'd think each one would go out of it's way to aim high for quality and friendliness. No so with this one. It's close to Dupont Circle, so there are many hotels around the neighborhood from which to choose. Skip this one and try the next. The place feels run-down, not old-world...

I booked a room with Agoda, but Agoda did not take payment as I expected. When I arrive at the hotel, the receptionist deducted payment using my credit card details which I had entered on the Agoda website. I was in a rush and forgot to ask for the receipt (was not offered one). When I left the next day...

After leaving an item in the hotel room, I called the following morning. After 3 more days of follow up, I was told it was thrown out. I asked to speak to a a manager, and was only given a generic email address. After several attempts of writing that I wish to speak to the manager, I never received any...

DC has the most absurdly expensive hotel prices you can imagine and this place is just about the cheapest there is and for that is perfectly fine. It reminds me of and old fashioned British B & B in somewhere like Torquay. It has character and the bar downstairs is useful. Perfectly OK and well positioned although the Mall is...

Upon arrival to the hotel, I had called ahead to make sure I could leave my bags earlier in the day prior to checking in that afternoon. I was a bit concerned there was no secure place to leave my bags except under an open stairway. The room was very clean although quite small with simple furnishings. A clean small...

Stayed here while in town on business. I was nervous at first but the hotel turned out to be interesting! Very small elevator so we took the stairs mostly. Quiet rooms. Ok AC (coming from NY we like it cold). Bed was a little small for us. Nice shower, but be careful of the slick floors. Parking is street parking...

Stayed here for 5 nights with my partner. Great location and clean rooms. Building is old and quaint but great value. After reading some reviews I was slightly apprehensive about our stay. I was pleasantly surprised. Nothing wrong with this hotel, you get what you pay for!

This place looks interesting as you climb out of the taxi. It is an older building centrally located. It has a bar, sorry "tavern", in the basement which prides itself on an extensive and interesting beer list. But....going into the hallway the hotel has seen better days. Reception is tucked away at the rest, under the stairs. The elevator is...

Definitely has an off-the-beaten track feel, outdated but quaint. Rooms and bathrooms are tiny but clean, and the bar downstairs is excellent. Great service and a five-minute walk to the Metro station. There weren't many amenities (no fridge) and my TV remote didn't work, but for the middle of Dupont Circle the price can't be beat. The layout upstairs is...

“If walking up stairs are difficult for you, consider a room on a lower floor, though some may be noisy located near the tavern.”

“The elevator is outdated to the point of uselessness so get something on the second floor or you'll be dragging luggage upstairs.”
