My wife and I stayed in the large room located on the top (third) floor. The king bed was extremely comfortable, the bathroom had two sinks, and the shower had four nozzles. The windows are absolutely sound proof, and the air conditioning is quiet. The only amenity that wasn't top-notch was the TV, which was not HD, but who spends... More

Had a wonderful stay at the Ivy Mansion. I found Dona to be a kind and excellent host. She is accessible by text / phone and is keen to ensure your stay goes well, but at the same time gives you space and doesn't bother you. I am an experienced traveler and really just want peace and quiet when I... More

The location was great, room was cute and restaurants nearby were solid. This is why we as travelers stay at B&Bs. Quiet neighborhood feel but walking distance to a vibrant area with shops, restaurants and public transport.

Loved the established neighborhood and the original flavor of the Ivy Mansion. The nearby restaurants, and proximity to the Metro station at Du Pont Circle made our stay most enjoyable. Don't miss the fabulous Phillips Collection gallery, just a couple blocks away.

We really enjoyed the room and it was relatively close to the Metro stop, so that was nice because that was how we traveled around to the various sites. However, it is advertised as a bed and breakfast when the breakfast had to be prepared by you. This was fine, but I felt like that fact wasn't made very clear.... More

This location is excellent for access to Dupont Circle. The owner is quite pleasant and helpful. Our room was adequate; the bathroom had been updated. Internet access. Breakfast is available - make your own. For our purposes, we were very pleased with the location, the rate, and the room.

Quaint B&B located just off the Circle in a quiet neighborhood. Dana is the perfect host-attentive and full of tips on all the sights and restaurants. We were very lucky to have found the perfect place to spend our week in DC.

This is an excellent choice for business travelers and tourists alike. Dana is friendly and knowledgeable, and is quick to remedy any issues you might have. She doesn't cook breakfast,... More

A great cozy stay...Immediately upon arrival, I was met with my wonderful host who gave me a tour of the property. All amenities were clean and functioned perfectly. The floors are a bit creaky and noisy but that comes with the history of the property. Would not hesitate to stay here again.
