Like so many people who have already reviewed Akwaaba we had the most wonderful 3 night stay here. The room we booked - the Toni Morrison room - was really attractively furnished with everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable. The B&B is in a fantastic location; a 20 minute walk to the Obamas' and a 30 minute walk to Georgetown if you feel so inclined. If not, DuPont Circle Metro station is an easy 10 minute stroll. There are tons of restaurants in walking distance ... if you feel like eating after the 5pm refreshments. Our stay was made truly special by Joanna who is the most warm, helpful, professional person we have encountered to date in our 6 weeks in the USA. Our stay began during the shutdown and she was a mine of information about everything Washington has to offer and could point you in the direction of anything you needed. A feature of the B&B that we found such a pleasant surprise was the 5pm 'refreshments'. Expecting a cuppa and a bikkie, we were instead served Joanna's homemade cakes, dips and other appetisers and some very nice wine. Add to this the delicious breakfasts and you will want to stay here for the quality of the food alone. The breakfasts and refreshments are also served in an atmosphere that is really conducive to striking up interesting conversations with other guests. We can't imagine a better place to stay in this lovely city.
