Good location metro station with many restaurants within walking distance. Old style house with a cozy feeling. Room little small but quite comfortable and enough for one person. Excellent breakfast with chef Kevin.

This is our second visit to this hotel convenient to DuPont Circle. The staff is terrific, even better than the first time we stayed there. We particularly liked their flexibility. It is small and we arrived at an inconvenient time, but they accommodated us. We had to leave very early for the airport, well before the scheduled breakfast, but they... More

We stayed 5 nights at the American Guest House when I accompanied my husband on a business trip last month. This is a charming and beautiful old building that was built in 1899. The accommodations are well maintained and very comfortable. We were on the top floor in room 403, which is spacious with a sitting area and antique furniture... More

Close to everything we needed, only a short stroll to the DuPont circle centre. The room was homely and clean, and the guesthouse was decorated with interesting Americana. Breakfast was included and delicious. Staff were friendly and the free wifi was a bonus. Would definitely return.

Super size comfortable bedroom with classy furniture. Just make sure you don't forget the front door access code (I didn't)! Around half a mile from Dupont Circle Metro Station which is centrally located on the Red Line convenient for most tourist locations.

This is a very comfortable, cosy, exceptionally friendly place to stay in a very convenient location. Delicious healthy breakfasts are cooked for you, with good conversation around the table with fellow guests from around the world.

I have stayed here a few times when other hotels in the area are sold out. It is a charming building in a good location. Easily walkable to Dupont Circle and Adams Morgan.
