Koo Yuen purchased this house in 2012

Why Koo Yuen chose Penn Quarter

Unique Historic Home built in the 1800's for Chinese Association. Very Downtown and Chinatown. Yet the living environment makes one feels in a Grand Manson setting with the amenities that are common only in the luxurious lodging places

What makes this house unique

DC Gallery Place and all the Great entertainment and Great Eats are steps away from this Grand Home.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The place had enough space for the 12 people staying there. We had a few problems but the owners took care of everything, great to work with. We could walk every where and had a great time.

Amazing location with friendly, easy to reach owner and property manager.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of six adults and four children from age 2 to 15 stayed here in May 2018, and we had plenty of room. We were amazed at how close and easy it was to get to the metro station. We were also able to walk to the Smithsonian museums on the mall and to most of the monuments.

We had rented a car and contacted the manager about the parking, which was occupied by the neighboring restaurant staff, and he assured us that we could park there. A car is not necessary in this location.

The owners were kind to provide a pack and play at our request.

I could not give this property five stars for the following reasons:

The house had four bathrooms all with showers but only the one off the kitchen had enough water pressure to take a decent shower.

When we arrived the floors needed a decent mopping and the rugs and carpeting could have use a cleaning.

It had rained for a week straight prior to our arrival and the roof was leaking in several rooms and the hallway upon our arrival. My family watched the walls and ceilings swell with water and the paint actually fell off the ceiling and walls in places. We contacted the manager immediately and did not see anyone through our stay. As a home owner myself I was concerned for their property. I can’t imagine treating a customer that way if hospitality was my business.

Finally, a reasonable supply of the typical necessities of a home like hand soap, paper towels, clear instructions on what to do with recycling and trash, and checkout were below the highest rating I could give.

Perfect location, plenty of space, new furniture!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of nine adults staying in DC for a week. This place is perfectly located, just a short walk to most major sights, and of course close to the metro station if you'd prefer not to walk. The owners have bought new furniture and photos have not been updated to reflect this; we were pleasantly surprised by the new couches/chair in the living room and two of the upstairs rooms having bunk beds instead of single beds. The bedding as well appears to be new. We ended up having more than enough space. The one minor annoyance was its location next to 6th street: the road noise could be quite loud at times, especially in the bedrooms facing the street. Other than that, our stay was wonderful, I would definitely rent this place again.

This place is all about location. Easy to walk to the National Mall, convenient location for using the metro, and 5 minutes from a Safeway grocery store. The pictures shown on line were not exactly what we found to be true in person, but i think that was due to improvements made in the VRBO. some double beds were switched out for double bunk beds, which by the way, were very comfortable. It was clean. We could have used a cookie sheet for baking pizza... but all in all, it was a fine place.

I would stay here again.

good location; poorly maintained

  • 2 of 5

We did not love it but cannot remove that icon. Why is that?

The location is good. The entire space needs a deep cleaning, bathrooms in particular. The kitchen furnishings ae both inadequate and broken. The HVAC cannot be programmed for comfort on both levels. The mattresses need to be replaced. Sofas and chairs are worn out and the sheets and towels are virtually threadbare. We would not recommend, nor would we choose to stay there again

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stayed at this location for a week and really enjoyed ourselves. The house is very spacious and was close to everything. Two blocks away is the subway that takes you anywhere in DC. Plenty of restaurants nearby as well. The house had a great charm and was a joy to stay in.
