“A fantastic place to stay in DC”
Reviewed 9 January 2011

Really recommended by us because of the friendly and cosy atmosphere. IGH is run by Mennonite volunteers but you don’t notice that except from a little morning prayer before breakfast. In the basement : a kitchen with refrigerator, microwave and dishes, but no stove – some chairs and a TV set (no TV in the rooms) – ping pong table – ironing board – for a small charge : snacks and internet. Everyday at 9 PM super cosy “evening tea” : guests and volunteers exchange stories. Our room type : 2 single beds and 1 play pen (with a small surcharge) – but still a very cheap stay in DC. Shared bathrooms, but very clean. Breakfast : simple but very good. At 8 AM. Orange juice, homemade muffins (!), toasts, cornflakes, milk, coffee, tea. Places tot eat nearby : none. Parking space : 3 place in the back without extra charge. More then enough though. Most guests come without cars. Public transportation every 10 minutes nearby on 16th street and 14th street.

International Guest House in Washington, DC is a bed and breakfast run by the Mennonites. The volunteers who runs the house are retirees. They took care of every basic need and yet feel like at home. Their special tea time is a great way to tell stories of your travels or experiences. This includes their home bake goods! Best part is like having a grandma or grandpa over and really make you feel like at home. A sweet home away from home. All the modern conveniences included. Plus there is a huge game room! Ample parking on the street and plenty of public transportation nearby.

This B&B was fantastic. The hosts were very warm and welcoming and the rooms were clean and comfortable. You were really made to feel welcome and the hosts gave you lots of information about their city. In a nice neighbourhood too. A good affordable choice for DC.
