Our stay at "A Gem At U Street" was perfectly relaxing after each day of touring DC.
Our host was so, so nice, and very helpful. We will definitely stay again on our next trip to DC. This is truly a gem.
It was great!!! DC is a great city with a cool attitude and places for hang out, museums, lots of good restaurants and a water front. This place is close to much places and Uber functions at a 100%.
Place is not as small as I expected from the pictures.
Welcoming snacks was a nice touch from the owner!
Location - very good (just couple of stops to the Mall).
Plenty of choice to eat within walking distance. It's actually in a middle of very popular and busy district.
This is a cozy gem in a super cool, historic neighborhood. Ben's Chili Bowl, Lincoln Theatre (part of Black Broadway on U Street), and the African American Civil War Museum are all within walking distance. The host is attentive (I was glad umbrellas were provided). It's not officially a bed and breakfast, but with Trader Joe's around the corner, a full size fridge, and a cooktop, no problem. One can easily travel anywhere in the city (I didn't have a car but walked and took the Metro). However, currently, the escalators at the U Street Metro, 13th Street side, are under repair so there is an annoying slow and tiny elevator. I hope to be back again.
