Great value, convenient location, pet friendly

7 management rating Reviewed by on

Cathedral Heights is a great location: very safe, quiet, not too far from campus. Lencshire House is great for pet owners. The rent is reasonable and utilities are included.

Great Value

8 management rating Reviewed by on

The Garfield House is a great value building if you're on a small budget, with studios and 1-bedrooms. They offer 6, 9, or 12 month leases, with month-to-month when the lease is up. The neighborhood is really nice, near the National Cathedral with many restaurants and stores within walking distance. My dog loved the park across the street and the trails in the nearby Glover Archbold Park. The 30s/30n/31/33 bus stop is right out the door, getting you to Tenleytown in 5 minutes or Foggy Bottom in 20 minutes, and the N2 line is a block away that gets you to Dupont Circle in 10 minutes. It's an easy 20-25 minute walk to campus. The rooms are pretty basic, but there is an outdoor pool and utilities are included. Parking is limited in the small lot, but there is easy Zone 3 parking surrounding the building and I've never had a problem finding a spot within 2 blocks. Maintenance workers are really responsive and the front desk workers are friendly. The worst thing is the traffic on Wisconsin; people honk their horns constantly at all hours.

Building is older, but my view is amazing and the value can't be beat. If you have a car, this location works for any working professional in the city. This is a very low key building, lacks many nice amenities but if you're willing to trade for good rent, it works.

Great location and improvements being made to building

5 management rating Reviewed by on

Great location. apartment itself is fairly outdated but management is starting to make improvements, starting with much needed new bathrooms. Apartment has lots of windows facing 16th street providing tons of light and gorgeous views of the city. Great size for a studio in DC, plenty of closet space. Nice front desk workers that know your name. overall not a bad building for the area.

Good deal, lots of space, a few issues

4 management rating Reviewed by on

Parkhill is an older building that recently underwent construction to replace pipes and renovate some rooms. I got a great deal with my rent. (I couldn't afford the space and location anywhere else). There are a few bug and heating issues, but management and maintenance is very responsive! Overall, I'm happy with what I have for the price I pay.

Low frills apartment

4 management rating Reviewed by on

Good, low frill apartment. Management was OK within the building but completely inaccessible higher up when I had billing issues to resolve with the property manager. Friendly front desk, friendly maintenance. No gym, paid parking underground, nice roof top.

Great Apartment

The units in the Meridian are small, but very comfortable and clean. The building is maintained very well and repairs needed in the units are completed extremely quickly and well. Everyone on the management staff has been very helpful. Great place to start out in DC.

Can't beat rent cost

3 management rating Reviewed by on

Rent is low, views are the best city views I've ever seen. Really no amenities to speak of, but Celestine and Donna are friendly and responsive. If you're ok with a slightly dated building and manage expectations, this is a great deal for Washington D.C.

Lovely Studio Living

7 management rating Reviewed by on

From the moment I saw my studio, I knew it was a great deal. It's spacious, has a cute separate kitchen area and a huge closet, and is quite affordable (especially for Columbia Heights). The front desk staff are the nicest people, and the neighbor's dogs are adorable. Some online reviews complain of cockroaches in the building, which I have never encountered. My only drawbacks are that it is an old building, so there is no central AC or heating, and that you must provide your own AC window unit and pay an rather high electricity surcharge in the summer months (sometimes over $100 a month). A bit excessive, but with water/electric included in the rent the rest of the year, it all works out more or less.

Overall, pretty good.

8 management rating Reviewed by on

Very good for the location. The building is old and some apartments could use renovations. However, it's right across from the cathedral with lots of bus stops (N2, N4, N6, 30N, 30S, 37, 96, etc) and only a mile and a half from Tenleytown. As far as city living goes, it's not too bad. Management is friendly and very responsive.

Okay for what it was…

Ok for what it was, had one of the better apartments. no amenities, management was impossible to get in contact with. i was probably charged a bit below what they could have charged for the unit, especially with all the new developments happening around me.

Great Location & Great Management

9 management rating Reviewed by on

We love living here! Yes, the price is more than we'd like to pay but the pool, staff, roof-top deck and location are amazing. We have had quick turnaround from the maintenance folks and the landlord (and her team) seem to know everyone by name! It's a great place!

Garfield House

4 management rating Reviewed by on

Very nice apartment although if you don't have a car, it can take a while to walk to the shops. Nice to have the pool in the summer and all staff is accomodating, but is sure not to bother the tenants too much. A work out room would be nice to have.

Great apartment and perfect location (if you have a car)

10 management rating Reviewed by on

Great experience here. The only downside is that we do not have a car, and this location is not close to a metro (several bus options, though). The apartment has several amenities including a dishwasher, in-unit washer/dryer, a balcony, and included utilities. The management company is responsive and helpful.

The Parkhill is located between Columbia heights and Mt Pleasant, great location, affordable price for DC. Management is easy to deal with, pet friendly. Close to metro and bus stop is right outside. Concierge services available till 11pm, so you always get your packages delivered on time.
