Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Washington, D.C. neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $1,500/month.

↑ Only a few blocks away from the Cleveland Park Metro station, renters can find this one-bedroom, 398-square-foot apartment. The $1,500 per month includes all utilities. Unfortunately, no pets are allowed, and there is no off-street parking. The unit overlooks Rock Creek Park. Shared laundry is available in the building.

↑ If looking for a great location by a ton of restaurants and retailers, this one-bedroom English Basement unit is on the market by 14th Street NW and U Street NW. Asking $1,500 per month, this 1,356-square-foot rental offers a washer and dryer, hardwood flooring, and exposed brick. No pets are allowed. The nearest Metro station is only two blocks away.

↑ Next up, by Fort Totten, this $1,450 per month English Basement unit is up for grabs. With one bedroom and 1,457 square feet of space, this apartment comes with an updated bathroom and kitchen as well as an in-unit washer and dryer. Small dogs are allowed. All utilities, cable, and internet are included in the rent.

↑ In Southeast’s River Terrace neighborhood, this two-bedroom, one-bathroom townhome is on the market for $1,500 per month. According to the listing, it includes a washer and dryer and a close location to I-295. There is no indication as to whether or not pets are allowed.

↑ Last on the list is this Glover Park unit. Unfortunately, there aren’t too many details available on the one-bedroom, but it does feature hardwood flooring and a rear porch. The 700-square-foot listing says that the kitchen has been updated, but it doesn’t really look all that spruced up. The listing price is $1,500 per month.
