The place is a block away from Capitol Hill. Great location! We couldn't believe we could secure such a place with relatively less money. We visited Washington DC in spring. The whole city is in blossom. It is pleasant walking in the neighborhood. We have a bedroom and living room. Celia made living room very inviting and lovely. When night... More

This accommodation has a great location right across the street from the Library of Congress on Third and Independence. Easy walking to the Capitol, the National Mall, Eastern Grocery, Folger Library, restaurants. Breakfast was always on the table first thing in the morning along with the Washington Post and the New York Times. The townhouse is old and charming. The... More

Celia's Place is located right at Capitol Hill. In fact you can walk to most places very easily. Celia was very welcoming and her home is charming. It is, like another reviewer said, like staying with a family friend. The B&B section has a very comfortable sitting room and bedroom and a private bathroom. The bed was comfortable, but is... More

Great location, helpful and kind host. You're provided a parking pass for the street, and the metro is only a 5 min walk away. If I return to the DC area, I'll most likely stay here again. I would have been happy to stay longer.

We stayed at Celia's for 2 nights in mid May. The B'nB is in an excellent location very close & an easy 20min walking distance to Capitol Hill & the National Mall. It is a beautiful old home in excellent condition. Celia was welcoming, helpful & organised making our stay very relaxed albeit rushed. I would stay again.

Staying at Celia's place was to experience what it would be like to live in the area. It's a 2 story, narrow historic brownstone and you are literally a guest in Celia's home. Celia herself is a smart and charming host with a fascinating history of her own! Her beautiful cat Maggie will greet you from time to time. The... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Celia's place. She and Maggie (her cat) welcomed us into their beautiful home which is conveniently located in a beautiful neighborhood near the Capitol. Not far is East Market where there are any eateries, interesting shops and coffee houses. Celia's accommodations are great! A comfortable bed is a necessity and Celia provides just that!

The house is so close to Capital Hill. We had a great time being able to walk to close destinations and Metro access is easy too. We were warm and cozy even though it snowed and was quite cold during our visit. Breakfast was great and enjoyed reading the paper over coffee at a lovely dining room table. Bed was... More

This isn't a high-end, clinical hotel...it's more like staying at someone's home. The room is very comfortable and clean, and having a sitting room was great. (Plus, there are books everywhere!) The location couldn't be better. I was able to walk everywhere and didn't have to use the metro, so even if this place might be pricier than others, you... More

The location was excellent, within walking distance to main attractions, restaurants and mini marts.our host Celia made us feel very welcome and comfortable staying in her home.The rooms were small however well appointe, homely and clean. This was our first experience at a B and B and would definitely return and also recommend it.
