Wonderful Stay with a Personal Touch in the End

54321

Ideally located to explore all to do and see around the Washington Mall, we had a wonderful stay with Simon and Robyn at their Apple Tree Guest House, and Simon's breakfasts were top notch. We had a bit of a glitch in getting a taxi to take us and our luggage to the Union Train Station in time (which is easily walkable if you don't have a bunch of luggage to drag along). Simon immediately offered to take us with his car. Well it did save us the taxi fee, but much more importantly, it saved us our onward journey south on the Amtrak. THANKS Simon! and God bless to you and Robyn and your lovely Apple Tree Guest House

Amply satisfies.

54321

Washington has great architecture, and I enjoy staying in its elegant buildings if I can, rather than in a larger hotel. This building, a beautiful old townhouse appointed with antique furniture, amply satisfies that. It's in a nice area too.

Wonderful time!

54321

Our stay at Gessford Ct. was fantastic. The host was very hospitable and friendly. Breakfast food and company was good. The accommodations were excellent and the location was the best! We definitely would stay again and will recommend this B&B to our friends.

Enjoyable Stay

54321

We spent 3 nights mid-April during the Cherry Blossom Festival at 1921 Gessford. Our hosts were extremely gracious and David makes a wonderful breakfast. The property is decorated in the most interesting array of artwork, yet remains warm and inviting. Being music lovers, they have installed an amazing sound system as well. We found the home to be very comfortable. Parking on the street was not plentiful, but we were always able to find a spot within the block. Overall, our stay was very enjoyable and I would highly recommend a stay here if you are planning a visit to DC.

05/5

Wonderful weekend

54321

Spent the first weekend of March at 1921 Gessford since it was in the same neighborhood that our daughter lives in. The property was very comfortable and homey and the host extremely accommodating and gracious. They also were very informative about things happening in the area and made our whole weekend very enjoyable.

54321

This is a charming house nestled in a great DC neighborhood. It is surrounded by restaurants, just a quick walk to the train and a number of interesting attractions. Breakfasts were delicious and the innkeeper an excellent hostess.

05/5

54321

This was a wonderful place to stay. It was very nice and like staying at friend's house or grandpa's. Carl made lovely breakfast. He was great company. Don had fun and adventurous stories to tell. This is a great location with grocery close by. Easy bus/metro access to great museums at the Mall. We highly recommend this place.

05/5

Very clean, very nice!

54321

Very clean, very nice, had a great time staying there. Felt very safe and comfortable. Excellent location. Close to lots of great restaurants and a quick trip on the metro to get to downtown. Would highly recommend to other travelers.

05/5

Perfect

54321

My stay here was in one word; perfect! The room and accompanying bathroom was excellent, the location in a very nice neighborhood and within walking distance of the Capitol was superb and last but not least, Barbara was the nicest host you will ever meet.

05/5

CLEAN and Wonderful!

54321

We had a wonderful time at the Cardozo guest house! It's very clean and comfortable and in a great part of town. This was our second visit and we would love to come again.

05/5

Great Accommodations and Fantastic Host!

54321

Recently stayed at Brumidi for a quick two night, three day work trip to Capitol Hill. The accommodations were spacious, comfortable and very well kept. The Host was very flexible, warm and attentive to my needs. Breakfast both mornings was delicious. After checking out, I needed to store my luggage, for a few hours - which the Host was more than willing to allow. I highly recommend Brumidi. This is the first time I have stayed at a B&B in DC. I would do it again in a heart beat.

05/5

Excellent and close to the Matro!

54321

I reserved this room last minute for my family who was vacationing and they adored the entire experience. They told me the house was perfectly located , close to the metro station . They loved the house and was able to socialize with the other occupants who were also very friendly.

54321

Barbara Marks could not possibly be a more amenable host, and her accommodations, a large, airy, pleasant bedroom and private bath, are both attractive and immaculate. It is a five star place to stay.

Weekend in DC

54321

My husband and I spent 3 delightful nights at this B&B. We loved it and would absolutely return. Barbara is a charming hostess and made us feel right at home.

Excellent & Enjoyable

A very enjoyable stay in a wonderful guest house. I could not have picked a better location for a week in Washington. Gary was an excellent host and everything ran very smoothly during my stay. Highly recommended.

Great!

54321

Great location, walk able to everything you'd want. Convenient if you US Capitol business meetings in this area. Very Spacious living quarters. Host was accommodating to my needs even though she was very busy. Would definitely stay here again!

05/5

Excellent!

54321

The process was quite easy. They provided instructions on how to enter (a little complex with multiple doors, but no problem). The house is a wonderful old structure with requisite squeaky floors in the hallway, transom windows above the doors, etc.—and an astonishing collection of African art in the living area. Quite stunning; we felt like we were in a museum of sorts. Unexpected and truly remarkable. Very clean and inviting. Our room was very large, so we could relax there and not feel crowded. Three bedrooms share a bathroom, which for the most part was not an issue—other than the fact that another guest left the bathroom door closed on a couple of occasions, so we weren't sure if someone was in there! Might be worth adding a little sign to let people know to keep the door open when not being used. The hosts were very accommodating, and very prompt in responding to our communications. They allowed us to store our bags in the front room after checkout time, so we could go to an appointment without having the schlep our luggage with us. Overall a very positive experience!

05/5

Awsome!

54321

Awesome location and historic type house in a quiet neighborhood! This house reminded me so much of the house I grew up in and it was very convenient for my work location and close to restaurants. I ended up working very late several nights in my room and the wireless and connectivity were great. Overall it was a great experience and would definitely go back.

Independence Hall B&B

I had a wonderful stay at the Apple Tree Bed and Breakfast. Beautiful home near Capitol Hill. Welcoming hosts--very kind and extraordinarily helpful. My room was comfortable and provided helpful extras for travelers. I could not have had a better experience and hope I get a chance to stay there again.

05/5

Stunning!

54321

Des Affiches was just as advertised. The residence was beautiful and stunning with top of the line finishes everywhere. It is an absolutely gorgeous home. The room was comfortable and clean. My wife and I visit family in Bethesda often and now we have found a new place to stay. Thank you to the hosts who were attentive and gracious.

05/5

Good Place

54321

I very like that house. The host is very kind and the house is very comfortable! It's really a good place to live!

A Pleaseure to Stay Here!

54321

The Cardozo (and more specifically the Pembrooke Room) was an absolute pleasure to stay in. In addition to it's beauty and attention to aesthetic comfort, it was well equipped for a traveler. Power outlets, ample storage space and a mini fridge with bottled water were all thoughtful conveniences. Would love to stay again if D.C. is my destination.

05/5

Awsome!

54321

My parents (in their mid 60's) just arrived back, and were extremely enthusiastic about their stay. The place is absolutely gorgeous (almost like a museum in itself), in a perfect location (they walked back and forth to the Mall and museums every day). The host was very hospitable, and thought about all the "little things" that made them feel like home (e.g. when they arrived, the lights were on, music was playing and there were fresh flowers...), and provided a great breakfast. They confirmed that it definitely is not a good place to go with kids as there is a lot of beautiful art everywhere. Museum buffs as they are, they have so far bragged more about this experience then about the Smithsonian!

“Washington Holiday”

54321

We thoroughly enjoyed our 9 days at Akwaaba in Washington. The bed and breakfast accommodation is of a very high standard and the 2 ladies who looked after us were excellent and nothing was too much trouble for them. The breakfast was of a very high standard and we also thought the happy hour food and nibbles at 5pm was a great addition. We would certainly use again as the location is excellent a 10-15 minute walk down the road is the White House. We would highly recommend this excellent establishment.

05/5

"An Oasis”

54321

I had been traveling alone for the past 6 days in the U.S. and missing the interaction with company at the end of the day. Additionally, although I had been paying top dollar for accommodation in Chicago and New York, the quality of the rooms left a little to be desired. That all changed at the Akwaaba. Bedrooms were beautifully appointed. The company of the other guests just enchanting. Hospitality of the innkeeper, beautiful. It's location is most convenient for the sightseer. I just wish the stay could have been longer.

05/5

“95th Birthday Celebration”

54321

A perfect place to stay in an inviting setting in the heart of one of of the most exciting and beautiful cities in the world. The guests included world travelers who melded for happy hour that lasted for hours. What a joy to have the best innkeeper and housekeeper in the Capitol of the United States!Merci beaucoup!

“Wonderful, centrally located B&B”

54321

Chester Arthur house was a charming oasis in the middle of DC. The owner was chatty without being intrusive, super accommodating and had great advice about the area. They are dedicated to preserving the house's original architecture. The breakfast was amazing and the chef made us a special to-go breakfast since we had to leave so early. I highly recommend Chester Arthur House.

05/5

“Knowledgeable Host”

54321

Great breakfast conversation with other visitors and Don. Fascinating! Fabulous breakfast made with love. Very nice location handy for many restaurants and access to the National Mall. What more do you need. Felt safe as lone traveler.

05/5

“Great Location and Hospitality”

54321

My friend and I stayed for the weekend before we headed off to college and we couldn't ask for a better residence for our two nights there. A lovely historic home located less than a mile from the White House, it was great having the up-scale amenities and location for a relatively cheap price. We were able to walk most places on our own, and metro stops were right off Logan Circle when we needed to take longer treks. The host, Don, was very informative and easy to talk to. The homemade breakfasts were also the perfect way to start off our day and kept us energized throughout our explorations on the Mall. Would recommend to anyone and will look to say here next time I visit DC!

“A good stay was had at Brumidi B & B”

54321

A lovely air conditioned older home (1869) full of antiques, nice bedrooms and good breakfasts. We were not crazy about the tub in the bathroom but it did have a shower attachment and would not prevent us from staying there again. Good location, about 3- 4 blocks from the Capitol. Nancy, the proprietor, was very nice and welcoming. Would stay there again.

05/5

"Como en Casa"

54321

We were very comfortable, very quiet. Excellent breakfast. A bit oldish but so is the city. Also well located and close to the metro. Difficult to find...the building has no signs or anything. Very Recommendable!

05/5

"Fantastic!"

54321

Akwaaba was wonderful. The house is historic, room was great, and the energy of the home was splendid. The proprietors was kind, caring, and efficient. We made friends with the most wonderful couple from the UK during our stay. We had an early departure and the host prepared a to-go breakfast for us--the nicest touch. We highly recommend and will definitely stay again.

05/5

Stay Here!

54321

Very atmospheric, beautifully preserved Victorian house in a great location, and with excellent hospitality. Don is a fascinating host - could have listened to him for days. Large bedroom with everything we needed, and very helpful orientation to the area. Breakfasts were delicious, and made even better by the beautiful dining room. A pleasure to return in the evenings and find quiet ragtime playing in the sitting room. Will definitely stay here again if we return to DC.

05/5

What a privilege to stay here!

54321

I stayed for 4 nights at the house and was really comfortable. The location is good, but if you have any mobility problems, it would still be a bit of a walk to the nearest metro - though the bus stop is closer.I loved coming in through the front door to peace, quiet and gently playing Scott Joplin piano music, at the end of a busy day of city visits. Lots of previous visitors have commented on breakfast - it does indeed set you up for the day . I much enjoyed a variety of company around the breakfast table and Carl's hospitality and delicious food - sweet one day, savoury the next.Great restaurants in the area too so eating in the evening was no problem. A very up-market part of the city, so as a lone traveller I felt very safe.

05/5

"Great Historic B&B"

54321

We stayed for 3 nights - the place is very central to all 'touristy' needs; it contains beautiful antique furniture in line with the period of the place. If you like sleek modern places then this is not for you...but if you relish the opportunity to live in a character home with great history that is clean & serviceable at a competitive price...then this is where you will want to hang your hat! PS. Carl cooks the most outstanding, delicious breakfasts that will see you through until almost dinner time!! (And choice coffee too )

05/5

"Excellent séjour”

54321

We stayed two nights at the Chester Arthur House. The house is beautiful, it has remained as it was in the 18th century, with period furniture. All other houses of this type have been divided into apartments, because the maintenance of such a home costs a fortune! The guest host preserves this gem. We arrived quite late at night, and we were greeted with kindness by Eric. We slept in the room on the first floor overlooking the street, There are all the amenities one could desire, air conditioning (it gets very hot in July), the wifi (very important for our daughter 12 years for us much less), the breakfasts were excellent, and allowed to start the day. Carl Cook was with us at breakfast, gave us some tips (eg eating at Indian museum restaurant. Excellent). We met as Don, the owner, a fighter who was among other journalist at National Geographic; very interesting and nice. The house is very well located in Washington, There are buses that go directly to the national mall.Le area is lively with good restaurants. It there's a parking space for those who have a car, but to avoid in Washington. The value is unbeatable compared to a hotel room. I highly recommend this B & B

“A Stay to Remember”

54321

If ever we'll go back to Washington, we will consider to stay at Cardozo Guest House. Well-maintained with free refreshments in the fridge inside our room. The common bathroom was very clean although it's being shared by 3 rooms on the second floor. & The Pizza near the stations is recommended.

Felt Like Home!

54321

We had a wonderful stay at the Cardozo Guesthouse - it's a cosy place to stay in a nice neighborhood and inside it felt like home :) We were in the Duxbury room, which was spacious with a fridge containing bottled water. There are two other rooms on the level that you have to share a bathroom with but during our 2 nights no one was occupying those rooms so we basically had the bathroom to ourselves!!! Very clean bathroom and the house is well kept - the housekeeper was lovely.Very close walk to the U street station which has a direct line to be National Mall where all the museums and monuments are. Also walking distance to main road with bars/restaurants.

Cardozo Guesthouse is a beautiful home - the rooms are nice. There is a Trader Joes on 14th street so you can get snacks or stuff for breakfast, milk for your coffee, etc. Just watch out for long lines towards closing. The neighborhood is good, especially if you stay 14th street toward the capitol. The street is very cute with the homes well tended and great little gardens in front of each of them. I've met the same housekeeper on two separate trips, she is a gem. There is a Keurig and a selection of coffee, sweeteners and powdered creamer. There is a small fridge. There is no breakfast, but the location is good (subway stop very close - about two blocks), the rooms are fine and the price is right!
