The Kalorama Guest House - Washington
It is ok, but over-rated. Good part is that it has home like feeling, run by just one person Jack who is also friendly. But the property is a bit old. The bathrooms are generally big but the water is either too hot or too cold. The breakfast has limited choices. The price is very high for the kind of facilities it offers. No elevators also.

A guesthouse conducive to genuine conversation
Jack is a great host....this feels like you're visiting your cousin's charming old house with complimentary wine and cookies and a great breakfast. The rooms aren't huge or furnished with the most recent decor (though the shower and bathroom actually are). But it feels authentic and cozy and thus guests actually talk to each other.

Wonderful host, great breakfast, great location.
Jack was an absolutely wonderful host. The breakfast was outstanding, the location great for my conference. He went above and beyond, including fresh baked cookies and wine for arriving guests! Will stay there every time if possible when I return to D.C.

Welcoming, accommodating, location, andvalue.
Excellent location - convenient to National Cathedral, DuPont, or Metro, extremely welcoming staff, accommodating, and clean. Re-purposed house into a welcoming hotel with shared bathrooms, suitable to a night or extended stay.

Jack could not have been nicer or more welcoming and when I was running late at the end of my trip, he used his own Uber account to call me a quick cab. The guest house is clean and attractive, with coffee/tea/water and free WiFi available at all times, and the bed was perfectly comfortable.
