We couldn't have had a more pleasant stay than we had. It was simply perfect. When we were about to leave, after receiving a warm hug from Laura (owner), her husband Raymond offered us a ride to the next metro station and told me "When people offer you something in the US, they really are pleased to do so, otherwise...

We had a wonderful time at the Embassy Circle guesthouse in February. It was the first time we had stayed in a guesthouse in the US but found it a much more pleasurable experience than staying in a hotel. Raymond and Laura have created a beautiful home from home where guests are welcomed and made to feel like part of... More

I stayed at the Embassy Circle Guest House for five days in February ‘09 with my daughters (15 and 19), in the Cabbage Rose Afshar room. I was looking for an affordable, well-located hotel when I stumbled on a favorable comment in a general Trip Advisor review, and decided to take a chance. I’d never stayed in a guesthouse before...

A very comfortable house with wonderful hosts. A bonus were the interesting guests we meet over drinks at happy hour and breakfast. We also received great advice on what to see and where to go and especially great places to eat. Raymond, the host, makes a particular effort to look after guests. He cooked for us one evening, he drove... More

I have travelled to many parts of the world and stayed in many different places. Without doubt, Embassy Circle Guest House is one of the most comfortable, welcoming and clean I have ever stayed in. All of the staff, including the owners Laura and Raymond, go out of their way to know every guest personally and to make them welcome.... More

The Embassy Circle Guest House is welcoming, spotless, beautifully furnished, peaceful and peacefully located. There's good conversation with fellow guests over tasty breakfasts and evening drinks in the comfortable sitting-room. The owners and the staff are always helpful, friendly, informative. To our great relief there was no noisy television blasting away (as one finds in so many hotels these days),... More

This is one of the nicest lodgings I've ever stayed in. The house itself is lovely, with high ceilings, elaborate woodwork and big windows. The spacious room I had on the main level (room 111) was immaculate and comfortable. (Though if you're a light sleeper, you might want to pick a different room, because it was right by the front...

What a wonderful stay at Embassy Circle Guest House! My "home away from home" for the past three nights was beautiful, spacious, comfortable and quiet. Hosts Laura and Raymond Saba and their staff offer such warmth and hospitality that one feels like a member of the extended family instead of just a guest. Their personal touch is evident, and just... More

My husband and I stayed at the Embassy Circle for 4 days and have absolutely no complaints about our experience. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the wine and company everyday at 5pm and the breakfest was also a nice way to start your day in the morning... with conversation. We had wondered if the lack of a... More

For the frequent business traveler there is no better place to stay than at the Embassy Circle Guest House. The Guest House is a lovingly and luxuriously restored embassy. One enters into a work of art where each room has its own distinctive engaging flair. For those interested in the historical reconstruction of older buildings your host, Raymond, will take... More
