We were fortunate enough to stay in this beautifully renovated home in SE DC. David and Jorge were excellent hosts and helped us maneuver through the other visitors to this fine city and find fun things to see, fabulous things to eat, and generally have a great time. We were thrilled with the breakfast served to match the taste of... More

We picked Malolo Bed and Breakfast for it's trip advisor rating and we were not disappointed. We loved the restful, beautifully decorated rooms. The breakfasts were fabulous with lots of seasonal fruit, and various hot choices which varied every morning. The hosts were friendly and helpful, and all the guests seemed happy to be there. You will not be disappointed... More

Great hospitality, great company. "The Boys" could not do enough for you. The best B & B experience ever. The breakfasts were generous and there was something for all tastes. It was good to have somewhere where you could just relax, meet people and have conversations of others travel experiences. Malolo was nice and centrally located and with the metro... More

Dave and Jorge, the two owners, are really doing a heck of a job - this is how B&B should be! Clean and quiet rooms, unique furnishing (samoan style), delicious and large breakfast, cost-free transportation service from/to local metro station, free cell phone and, most of all, exceptional helpful and warm-hearted hosts.

A fabulous little place tucked in the hills of DC. A quaint and inviting landscape as you enter the B&B. The inside is comfy and inviting as well. The rooms are spacious, well decorated and welcoming to a weary traveller. Jorge and David are the most gracious and accommodating hosts (Almost to a fault). The food was above and beyond,... More

We had a fantastic time in Washington DC at Malolo B&B. The guys running the B&B do a terrific job, they really definied the word "customer service" new! The house and the room were desperately clean and they spare no effort to make the guests as comfotable as possible. We were brought and picked up to/from train station with the... More

We just completed our stay at Malolo B&B with our 15mo old son. I'm so grateful we spent our two nights in DC with Dave and Jorge instead of in a hotel. We will return the next time we're in the District. They have truly carved out a little piece of tropical paradise in an urban setting; once inside their... More

Coming back home, they talk about chef George and Dave as if they were their uncles. We all have a... More

Malolo worked out very well for us. David and Chef Jorge are extremely generous hosts, particularly with the time they were willing to spend making sure we knew where we were going, how to get there, best options, etc. We went out one night by Metro and they picked us up, and one night we took our rental car -...

This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast, and we felt spoiled. Our hosts, Dave and Jorge, shared their beautiful home with us and served as personal city guides - telling us which museums were "must-see" and offering suggestions for places to eat based on our cuisine preferences. Navigating the Metro system was easy with their guidance,... More
