Positive Reviews

Great location

Many past guests have loved the location of the Capital View, as it is just a short walk from many of Washington's top attractions like the White House and the National Mall. It is also just a 15 minute walk from Union Station.

Hardworking and friendly staff

A number of guests have said that the staff members at this property work very hard and will go out of their way to help you. This is even true in the middle of the night, should you run into any serious issues while staying there.

Full kitchen

Guests have been impressed by the fact that the property has a full kitchen that guests can use. The kitchen is stocked with basic supplies and there is a grocery store nearby where food can be purchased.

Negative Reviews

Rooms are cold

There have been some complaints about the temperatures of the rooms at the Capital View. It appears as though the heating doesn't work very well in this building, which has led to guests complaining about the rooms being too cold at night.

Shared bathrooms

Although guests were aware that they would be sharing a bathroom before booking this property, some people have not been happy about it. There is one bathroom for every two rooms, which means a maximum of eight people could be sharing a single bathroom, leaving some guests waiting.

Uncomfortable beds

A few guests have complained about the quality of the mattresses, saying that they could feel the springs poking into their backs all night long. This led to some restless nights while staying there for these guests.
