Our Capitol Hill pied-à-terre is a two-bedroom, one-bathroom rowhouse situated just a block from historic Eastern Market. The U.S. Capitol is six blocks away. Museums, monuments, and great restaurants and bars are a short walk or Metro ride away. Enjoy the private patio and Weber grill, a fully equipped kitchen, and cable TV and wireless Internet. Hotel convenience with the comforts of home.

The space

"Hideaway" is what members of Congress call their small, private offices hidden within the U.S. Capitol. Browns Court is a quiet, charming alley between East Capitol Street and Eastern Market, in the heart of the Capitol Hill Historic District.

We've got two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, and a small but full kitchen and living space downstairs. There's a patio out back with a Weber grill, and a combo washer/dryer in the kitchen.

Wow, this is THE best place to stay in Washington DC. So close to the centre and to shops and restaurants. Very calming at the end of a day of sightseeing.

Perfect apartment for a family of 4. Loved the location and would highly recommend. We found Capital bike share useful, but do read the small print!

Excellent and helpful hosts and in an unbelievable location. Quiet, yet easy walking distance (10-15 mins at most) to metro, great restaurants etc and can even walk to US Capitol. Will definitely return and can't recommend it enough.

The house is small but cosy and as described in the listing. The location is perfect for exploring the centre of Washington DC, with everything within walking distance. Communication was excellent and everything went smoothly. Thank you for a great Airbnb experience :)

Location, Location, Location!! This place is just three blocks from the Metro station, close to tons of restaurants, and close to a Trader Joes! (It opened while we were there) It's a charming row house in a lovely neighborhood. We loved walking around the neighborhood and looking at the beautiful homes. The beds were comfy, there were extra blankets, and a super efficient kitchen. Also, we walked to the Capitol and it was just blocks away. We felt safe, we were comfortable, and it was so easy to get around town. Our family of four fit just fine in this place, with one kid downstairs on the sofa bed, one upstairs in a bedroom, and then us in the master bedroom. The hosts were so great, and they provided a great list of restaurants to try. One thing to note is that Eastern Market and some of the Restaurants by there close at 7pm! But the Restaurants by the Metro stop stay open until 9-10pm. Being from LA, where we eat late, that surprised us. Perfect place for a family.
