The Hive is Buzzing, Catch that Vibe!!

Review of Hotel Hive
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 27 July 2021via mobile
The Hotel Hive defines hospitality! Ben created welcoming comfort from the first inflection of human voice. I was a weary traveler no more!! Each person on the Hive team seems to have been chosen for their love for the human connection!
My cozy upper bunk gave me a fine connection with nature through the window.
Pizza and drinks on the roof were perfectly fun.
The Hive is a unique perspective to visiting
The Nations City!

Ben was awesome! He was very accommodating and assisted with anything myself or my guest asks. David and Kiara were also very hospitable. I loved my stay at Hotel Hive. I would recommend it! The rooms were clean and the rooftop bar was great. The pizza was delicious.

Quick trip to DC for our senior before leaving for college. Did lots of sightseeing and museums. This hotel was perfect for a great place to sleep and we loved the location. Clean rooms and super helpful and friendly staff. We would absolutely stay again!

This hotel was absolutely amazing. One of the best We’ve seen in all our travels. Clean, modern, friendly. We highly recommend this hotel. We checked in with Kiera who was so sweet. We chatted with her a bit about the area. We also spoke with Ben during our stay who was extremely professional and friendly. We lucked out booking this hotel. It’s close to all the sights and overall perfect. Definitely will return if we are back. Highly recommend

I enjoyed my stay at hive hotel immensely; the staff or so friendly and so eager to help you it was great. I loved the vibe of the hotel it totally fit that city feel and the proximity of the hotel to everything around DC was just great. Any restaurant that my boyfriend and I looked up was literally less than 10 minutes away from hive; also if you’re into museums and monuments it is super close to all of those things as well. The rooms were clean; we stayed in a loft king room so it was definitely a lot bigger than any of the rooms throughout the hotel. I’ve heard buzz rooms are pretty noisy so keep that in mind when booking. It is a micro hotel so that is an adjustment for somebody who’s used to staying at normal hotels. There are no microwaves or refrigerators, I believe a cooler can be requested but it’s not something that comes with the hotel room.As I stated before the rooms were very clean, my only gripe would be with the bathroom door in our room which didn’t shut normally. We kind of had to give her a little nudge to close all the way and then a little nudge to get it open. another slight issue that I had was the rod that was used to close the curtains, one of them was not attached to the curtains. I’m sure these are things that were just unique to our room, overall the hotel has stellar reviews which is one of the reasons why I booked with them and I definitely would recommend staying here especially if you’re looking to go to DC on a budget.
