The International Guest House is such a great place to stay. The room was comfortable and the whole house was clean, top to bottom. Breakfast of warm muffins was a yummy way to start each day. Evening tea time was really fun. Each night, the host would suggest a topic of conversation, but by our last evening there, so many of us had been there for several nights, the host didn't even need to start conversation. The house is conveniently located between 2 bus routes that take you to the mall and are easy transfers to other Washington DC attractions. The staff at the Guest House were very helpful in finding our way. There are some stores and restaurants within easy walking distance. There is a place to store your own food, so you don't always have to eat out. We will definitely stay there again!
