What a fantastic and unique DC stay one can enjoy here. The volunteer staff is tops. The rooms are clean, beds comfy, bathrooms clean and the cookies and tea time - wonderful! Meet other guests at breakfast, in the social den or at tea time, and feel at home. Stay for a night and you'll not want to leave. I... More

I'm so happy I found this place! The guest house is on a nice quiet street, in a decent part of town, and has excellent public transportation. For my $40 I got a comfortable room, breakfast, and cookies at tea time. If there are several guests, you may have to share a room (I stayed during a slow week and... More

I usually book through hotwire or priceline but decided to try something different since the prices were so high in DC. I wasn't sure about sharing bathrooms and did not know what to expect. We were greated by Sheryl who was so friendly and informative. She gave us a tour of the house and showed us our room. Every evening... More

Stayed 2 nights for $45 per night. Outstanding value. This is a lovey, peaceful place run by members of the Meminite Church who volunteer to run the house. Do not let that put you off staying here as the only religious elements are bible quotes hanging on walls, an invitation to afternoon tea each day, and a brief prayer over... More

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... More

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... More

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.
