I was in DC for a conference and wanted to stay a few extra days to take in the sights. A friend suggested the IGH and who could beat the price?! But really, it's more than that. It is the sense of safety and community that really makes this place. By eating together, having tea and checking in at the... More

I had an awesome time at IGH. I received a very pleasant welcome; much more pleasant than I expected. The rooms are neat and I found the staff to be friendly. It is the perfect place for you if you're visiting Washington DC on a limited budget. I would recommend IGH anytime anyday.

Not only is this a fraction of the cost of a conference hotel, it supports meeting people of all ages from all over the world by serving tea at 9pm and breakfast at a simple but elegant dining room. Sleep 2-3 to a room under hand stitched quilts and A/C. Exceptionally gleaming and clean. Guest refrig, microwave, computer, WiFi, off... More

We stayed at international guest house for 3 nights. The place is super clean and comfortable. The hosts, Anita and Andy, were very kind and helpful. They provide breakfast and tea time in the evening. We felt like home. It was very pleasant to stay there. As for the transportation, it's around 20-30 minutes away from downtown. There is a... More

We stayed for here for 4 nights when visiting Washington. We were warmly welcomed by our hosts Orv and Clita , and shown to a spotlessly clean room which was attractively furnished and the beds were very comfortable. Orv helpfully explained about the local buses and where to eat locally. We were able to buy metro cards at the guest... More

Had a delightful overnight stay at this guest house. It is set on a lovely street with accessible parking in front. The volunteers who manage it do an outstanding job. Everything is spotless.The Ladies Restroom which is located on the 2nd floor is large and most likely recently updated. There is a separate tub and shower. Guest rooms are on... More

Last weekend my friend and I had the pleasure of staying for the first time in the Int'l Guest House. It felt like a fun trip into the countryside, only we were in the heart of D.C. - beautiful patchwork quilts on the beds, homemade breakfast family-style with all the guests, and the most gracious, friendly, positive, interesting host/hostesses. The... More

The International Guest House is such a great place to stay. The room was comfortable and the whole house was clean, top to bottom. Breakfast of warm muffins was a yummy way to start each day. Evening tea time was really fun. Each night, the host would suggest a topic of conversation, but by our last evening there, so many... More

The price is what catches the eye (it's great value), then perhaps the location (it's a bit out of the way) - but investigate further and you'll find one of the most interesting and unusual accommodation options in DC. The IGH is run by Mennonites, a Christian group who advocate simple living and nonviolence. Though I share these convictions, I... More
