                    the staff were very friendly and accommodating. the stay was very pleasant and I would recommend this hotel. Its not in the city centre but its only a 15 minute walk. Value for money is excellent and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

                    i like its location close to Best buy shopping Center at 14th street. i appreciate the inclusion of small Frigo inside the room. it was totally renovated.

                    i feel sorry the Wall-mounted AC didn't work during the whole stay in my room number 210. It was too hot inside and no one has done anything. Thank you for telling them to fix it.

                    Lovely feel to the hotel, which was undergoing renovation when we stayed. The staff were pleasant and helpful. Consider this hotel if you want a simple experience without the usual luxuries associated with the larger players.

                    Good neighbourhood and reasonable price

                    Ran out of food at breakfast and would like at least 2 choces of cereal.t.v. too hard to figure out. Leave instructions. If you turned on the box, the t.v. would go off and vice versa.A fan in the bathroom would be good.

                    Good place, nice ambient.

                    Extremely small space, quite noisy because of aircon equipment outside the window, furniture well behind its lifetime.

                    This is a budget hotel - its fairly clean, centrally located and worth the money.

                    Parking is very poor - You can park in teh street outside but watch out for the times, they vary on each side of the road and can be confusing to foreign visitors. I got towed at a cost of $200. This si a budget hotel and breakfast was a pastry and coffee only. Free/fast wifi made up for this though :-) My room was good but quite noisy at the front of the hotel.

                    Well, it is the closest to the city, if you intend to tour Washington DC.The subway or even the Metro is within walking distance. The neighborhood is very pleasant atmosphere. The rooms a bit cosy, but would have nicer if there was a small fridge and a microwave! And off course there is grocery/supermarket nearby and handy if you would like purchase any drinks or fruits. When I checked on Wednesday, the front desk, Delories was very kind enough to give extra 1-2 hours for me refresh up and time to pack my things. The rooms were neat, and the shower units were clean.

                    The breakfast is almost the same everyday, with the same doughnuts, and other stuff. And sometimes can be overcrowded. The phone lines were at one time were not working, when someone was trying to contact me.

                    The beds were incredibly comfortable. It was a safe and quiet place to stay during our D.C. trip.

                    D.C. temperatures were sweltering and there was never any ice available. Some of the staff were less than accommodating to guests' needs - simply somewhat reluctant to help.

                    Many things here. No natural light as room window view is the emergency stairs. No airvent in Toilet and hence bad smell ; room becomes humid and smell after a bath. Very small compared to other hotel I have lived in USA. Breakfast very very poor quality. Bread stale and not value for money. In brief, worse place I have been in US
