Welcome to Columbia Heights, the best neighborhood to be in DC! 7 mins walk from metro, 15 mins walk to 14th streets' hip new restaurants and bars. The apt is well-appointed in a rustic modern style. Back patio with gas grill and outdoor fireplace.

The space

How to use the TV: The TV is connected to the internet via Roku box, where you have Netflix and Amazon Prime. If you have a Hulu account there is that, as well as other channels. The silver remote is solely for volume and turning the TV on and off. The little black remote is for operating the Roku box and is very intuitive.

Guest access

Guests often try to get into the wrong apartment. The apartment is on the GROUND FLOOR, apartment A. (no stairs!) Your room has an entrance to the shared patio. You can access the whole apartment, apart from the other bedroom.

Interaction with guests

I am available to answer any questions about the space during your stay. I can also provide basic information such as nearby restaurants, metro access, etc.

Wireless Internet

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets

Please take your shoes off at all times in the apartment.

I may ask you to wash and dry your linens and towels IF I am out of the country.

Please be mindful if there is another guest in the apartment.

My stay at Ilona's was a great experience. I enjoyed the apartment, Ilona's company, and the neighborhood. Location of the apartment is excellent, at only 5 minutes from the metro, and close to a few bars, restaurants, shops and a nice yoga studio. Ilona was very attentive and nice: from providing a city guide and a metro card at my arrival, to giving me a lot of advices on the city. We had the opportunity to spend some time together and connect. The apartment is very clean, check in and check out are very smooth. I have been staying in a different room than that advertised on Airbnb, as the other room was not available. But I was notified of this change beforehand, and I agreed to it before completing the booking. I would definitely recommend to stay at Ilona's place!

Good value in a quiet residential neighborhood near downtown/tourist areas. The room we were given wasn't the room advertised/pictured, but Ilona let me know upon booking and sent pics of the actual room available, which doesn't have any connection/entrance to the patio and has a different type of bed (only accessible from 1 side), but other than that the size of the room is very comfortable for 2 people. Shared bathroom was very clean, as was the rest of the cute apartment. Ilona was cool, friendly and easy to communicate with, and checking ourselves in & out was really convenient. About a 10 min walk to metro station. A pleasant stay in DC!

Terrific place - nice neighborhood, easy walk to the metro, communicative host and comfortable place to sleep at a much more affordable price than a hotel. All of the right reasons to use AirBnB!

Illona is very welcoming and her place is super cute!! She is not only a great host- but an interesting and awesome person. The location was very close to 14th st downtown area, and a convenient walk to national hospital where I was working. I'll be staying here again!

I enjoyed my stay at Ilona's apartment. I was able to checkin as soon as I arrived from the airport which was great so I could come and drop off my luggage first thing. It is a nice apartment having everything you need. Bed was real comfortable. Ilona was very nice and welcoming, she was quick to answer my questions and ready to assist me in whatever I needed. The apartment was quiet and thus I slept well. It is about 7 minute walk to Columbia Heights Metro station and the Circulator bus. Other buses stop just a block away. The room was a good size and had lots of closet and drawer space so it was very comfortable to stay there. Kitchen had everything I needed. Bathroom was clean. The apartment smelled great. It was convenient to where ever I was going around DC, it takes about 20-30 minutes to get down to areas around the National Mall. I caught the local bus to get to Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and National Shrine of Saint John Paul II (and came back via the metro). The apartment sits in a residential area, but there are lots of fast food and shops at Columbia Heights metro or by taking the Circulator bus towards Woodley Park. I saw many restaurants on the Circulator route and there are lots of dining options at Woodley Park (20 minute bus ride, $1). Ilona is a great host and I'd recommend this for a single person or couple who wants to visit DC.
