Note that the photos are dated: the room has since been completely refurbished, with a new kind sized bed. Will be updating website soon, meanwhile we'd be happy to provide photos on request.

The space

Guest room with own separate bathroom in a beautiful home in the old city area of Capitol Hill, very conveniently located (walking distance from Union Station, Congress, Eastern Market, Stanton Park). Quiet and safe neighbourhood, two streets away from the buzzing 'H Street corridor' which offers a dazzling variety of quality dining experiences. The bed is new and comfortable.

The home owners - with whom common areas such as the living room and kitchen are shared - are a multi-cultural couple, who love traveling and have recently settled in DC. They will be happy to give you advice on great local restaurants and sights of interest.

Two friendly cats live in the house.

Leo and Melanie are friendly hosts with efficient check-in/out process. The description of their home is accurate. The location is convenient for public transports and a variety of eats. We enjoyed staying at their cozy home and quiet neighborhood.

What nice people! Excellent communication before and during the stay. They had a party at their home (which they asked us far in advance if we were cool with that) and we got to join in! So it was a huge bonus to our vacation to meet new people and have a glass of wine after a day spent being tourists. Loved all the fun art around the home and the sweet kitties.

The location is very near from Capical and we only cost 4 dollars to the Museum of Natural History with Uber. The room is very clean and I used the washing and drying machine and kitchenroom. Leo is also very nice.

We had a great stay at Leo's place. It was a beautiful house and in a great location. There were lots of great restaurants nearby and it was easy to get to Union Station to visit the rest of DC.

Leo and Melanie's place is in a safe neighborhood, about 25 minutes walking distance to the Capitol, Supreme Court, and the National Mall. The home has two bedrooms upstairs, including the guest room and adjacent private bathroom. Leo was away on business, but Melanie was there to make sure that I had a comfortable stay. We only crossed paths a few times, but she was always accommodating and helpful.
