Great place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Arlington to celebrate our daughter's 18th birthday and to enjoy a long weekend to Washington, DC. The apartment was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for the comforts of home. The front staff were wonderfully helpful and the metro was within a short walk and minutes from Washington. The kitchen had everything that I needed to cook a gourmet meal. The towels were soft, the showers were great and the beds were so very comfortable. My husband and daughter are vegans so my research payed off; there is a Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and the Bakeshop (has lots of vegan goodies) nearby. The room had a great view. We will be returning in the summer.

Best decision ever. Zen Hospitality is great!

  • 5 of 5

The decision to stay with Zen Hospitality at Ballston Avalon was a great choice. I am in VA once a month and have stayed at hotels in the past. Ballston Avalon was very spacious and had all of the items I needed for a relaxing long weekend. I was able to walk to the Metro, the Giant grocery store and also Buffalo Wild Wings. I will definitely use this VRBO in the future.

A great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was a great apartment for me & my family when we went to visit our son in DC over the Easter holiday. It was nice because it was out of the actual DC area, but DC was still easily accessible by the train, car or a nice walk. Very comfortable beds and everything was nicely kept and clean. There are coffee shops and grocery/liquor stores that were easily accessible. We will most likely be staying here again when we go out to DC to see our son. Thank you for letting us rent your place.

Perfect place for touring D.C.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the 3 bdrm/2 bath apartment and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The apartment worked perfectly and we found everything we needed already provided in the apartment. Thank you for that!

The location was ideal with easy access to the Metro and the Front Desk Concierge was very helpful, providing us with much needed information.

Staying at the apartment really added to our DC experience. Thank you for helping us with the delivery of the needed stroller parts. You definitely went the extra mile and we appreciate it very much.

The only complaint we have is time went too quickly. We wish we could have stayed longer!
