We really enjoyed our stay at Brian's place. The studio was very nice, clean, and easy to access. The metro was also only a couple blocks away. Located in a lively neighborhood, the studio was surrounded by well kept townhouses. There are also many bars, restaurants, and shops within 1-3 blocks. While the area is a bit more lively, the apartment is located in the back of the building, so you are away from the noise of the street. I would definitely stay again, and recommend to others.
