Amazing....great, friendly, helpful staff. Great location, easy bus route. Had an upgrade to an enormous suite, with huge comfy beds. Would stay again.

Good hotel in Foggy Bottom
Excellent staff, always jelpful and pleasant. Our original room had a few problems but when we brought this to their attention they moved us straight away and luckily to a more expensive room. Dinner in the restaurant was good but I thought it was expensive for what it was.

Not as good as I'd hoped
Conveniently located a couple of blocks from the Foggy Bottom metro. Large room with kitchenette and dressing area. Some fittings seem very old e.g. kitchen, bathroom, carpet. No privacy curtain/blind on large windows (offered alternative room which I declined as it was much smaller). TV only has a few channels and many weren't working (I stayed six days and nothing got fixed).Lots of airplane noise. Although I've stayed there before, I was disappointed and feel it's getting rather run down.

Lovely hotel.
Great location in a quiet pretty neighbourhood. The front desk staff were extremely helpful. The hotel has good facilities but we felt the kitchen in our room was dated and needed modernising.

Very Good8.0
A good little hotel that has the potential to be great. We understand a renovation is planned & would revisit once complete.
