Clean, gorgeous rooms and wonderful 5* property - Located very well to everything and staff were brilliant. Only fault would be that they need to have curtains or blinds in the rooms to stop the light getting in.The rooms were not dark at all - They had wooden slats as blinds, thus letting in all the lights from the surrounding...

Very good location for World bank-IMF visits- Huge- 70s era rooms- great location. I would give it 4 stars except for the fact that even after being gone all day to work I still have to chase housekeeping most days to clean the room. My particular package included "daily" cleaning- whatever that means..- I would think serviced apartments especially in...

I booked a room for seven days based on pictures on Internet. The room I received had no bathroom counter, no kitchen island, no bathtub and no maid service. We were woke up by trucks apparently servicing the buildings, picking up trash dumpsters and their back up alarms and honking between 3:30 and 5:00 in the morning every day. The...

Thank you for your time in creating your review. The suite that you were checked into was an ADA suite; as the property was at capacity. The ADA suite contains all of the same amenities as a standard one bedroom suite, however has a shower stall and more open space for the mobility of a wheelchair in the suite. We...

The location is perfect, in between the World Bank and the White House; everything is within walking distance and safe . Close to restaurants, clubs and the most important buildings of the capital .

Inflexible and no sense of how to deal with repeat customers. Staying over the stipulated 11 am checkout time is nearly impossible - too inconvenient for someone. And bear in mind you never know if you get the extension or not until the request is reviewed the night before; and I bet you the answer is almost certainly no. So...

Had a one bedroom, 1.5 bathroom. The location was great as most sites were within walking distance. Also a perfect distance for participants of the Cherry Blossom Run. We walked to the start and also walked back after the 10 mile run. Would definitely stay at AKA again.
