I would return to Washing D.C. just to be able to stay here! The location is fantastic, walking distance to many awesome restaurants and stores, and the night life on U street is so much fun. Getting down to the national mall was just a matter for getting on a bus. The room was so clean and comfortable, and the... More

This was our 2nd stay and we enjoyed it as much as the 1st time. We booked originally for the location and price and came back for that and the atmosphere. Our daughter lives near by in a very small apartment, so we hosted her here in the lovely living and dining rooms. At times, it feels like you are... More

We were fortunate to find a location a block from our son's apartment for our Veterans Day weekend in D.C. Meeting and talking with Sheila when we arrived was a wonderful way to start things off and we thoroughly enjoyed our four nights in the Asian Room. For us, the age of the building was a big plus, as it... More

This was a great find. Clean, comfortable, awesome location and great price! I love the proximity to the"hip" local scene. Diverse neighborhood with eclectic music and food. The accommodations are wonderful. This is a charming B and B. The home is inviting and exactly as advertised. I stayed in the Web Dubois suite and it was cozy and inviting. To... More

My mother, daughter and I very much enjoyed our stay at the WEB DuBois room at the Asante Sana Guest House. The room was clean and big enough for the three of us. The owner was accommodating and helpful and we were glad to be able to find a room close to my aunt. We used the kitchen and dining... More

I had never stayed in a B&B before and I was pleasantly surprised. It was perfect for what I needed. It is close to great food, the metro and the hospital. The home is beautiful and the two kitchens are a huge plus! The best thing is the free parking in the back of the house!!! I have told my... More

We had never been to Washington,DC and so excited to meet our son, daughter-in-law and their kids and see all the amazing sights. They were staying at a place just a block away, that's why we picked the Asante Sana. First thing is the smell of dampness and mustiness. The Silver Lake room is not exactly what we expected. There... More

We stayed here because it is only blocks from where our son lives. We were in the Lighthouse Room and although it is 3 floors up some very narrow steps, I broke my foot two days before and managed to climb the stairs with a crutch. It is located two blocks from the hub of Columbia Heights and just around... More

We had a pleasant stay at Asante Sana Guest Quarters on 3/27/13. The rooms were very clean. The entire house is decorated beautifully and has a warm, inviting feel to it. There are no keys, just an access code which we thought was easy and very convenient. There is no owner to greet you but we didn't mind that. We... More
