Our trip to DC was last minute. We contacted Embassy Circle and they were very accommodating. We were there for two nights and only wish we could have stayed longer!! Laura and the staff were so warm and welcoming. We truly felt we were guests in their home. They made us feel welcome and went above and beyond to introduce... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the guesthouse, it is located in a stunning area. the engaging conversations with the host and other guests was wonderful. Breakfast was delicious and the evening wine very good. I would have liked some cheese and crackers though! We stayed in the Cabbage Rose Afshar room which has twin double beds in the basement...

The owners, Laura and Raymond were outstanding at hosting and fostering conversation among the guests. The house was absolutely gorgeous; the renovation that Saba's had done was beautiful. This was one of, if not the best, B&B we have stayed in. Walkability to Metro, and Dupont Circle was only a couple of blocks.

This B&B is superb. Elegant accommodations in a very chic part of Dupont Circle among the embassies. The hostess, Laura, could be mistaken for a southern girl with her warm hospitality. She sits and visits with all guests in the parlor and over breakfast and encourages all guests to visit and engage in conversation with each other. She is well... More

I almost have no words for this very special place. Not only is it a stunning house with elegantly appointed sitting and dining rooms but our room on the first fl.was large, extremely comfortable and furnished with great style. Only a metro ride to all of DC's attractions The best thing for us was the hospitality offered by Laura and... More

Staying here was the icing on the cake of a wonderful trip to DC. Betty welcomed us and took us to our beautiful 2 queen bedded room on the lower floor, she also had pre-loaded Smartrip cards which we took advantage of to save the faffing about at the metro station. Breakfasts were varied and plentiful with fruit, cereals, various... More

We stayed at the Embassy Circle Guest House in February for 4 nights. We had a wonderful time! This B&B is very luxurious. The bed was very comfortable and we slept wonderfully each night. I was a little nervous about needing to keep up conversation at breakfast, but it turned out to be no problem! The nightly wine hour helped... More

This was our second visit to Embassy Circle Guest House, and we had another wonderful experience. The elegance of the house, the lovely paintings in the public areas and bedrooms, delicious breakfasts, and comfortable beds were much appreciated after long days of sightseeing. Our room, Ivory Esfahan, was just beautiful - very large, with a comfortable sitting area and every... More

We had 3 wonderful nights in Washington, enhanced by our stay at Embassy Circle. The b&b is very elegant, situated in the embassy belt, and only a 5 minute walk from DuPont Circle metro station. DuPont circle is on the red line that runs directly into the main areas of interest. Laura and Noelle are charming hosts, conversation during breakfast... More
