Our stay at The Carriage House was mid May 2012. The house is beautifully appointed with lots of little sitting nooks where you could read or lounge comfortably. The decorations are from all over the world. The breakfast, although continental, was plenty. There was fruit, rolls, croissants, bagels, muffins, string cheese, cereals, yogurts. One thing we found uncomfortable was that...

I have mixed feelings about this place. Depending on what you expect or need for your stay, you might want to give from 1 to 5 stars for this place. Pro: - Location. Just three blocks from the Capitol in a nice neighborhood that can be walked any time of day (or night). I also walked to Nationals games and...

I stopped going to bed and breakfasts when I started to value my privacy and some modern amenities more than "charm". Well, at the Carriage House on Capitol Hill you get both! Once you are in your room, it is entirely private and the baths are nicely updated for lodging with this sense of history and yes, "charm". This is...

We spent 2 days in DC and struggled to find cheap accommodation near the centre of town. We were pleasantly surprised to find a room so close to Capitol Hill and so affordable as well. Not only that, the place was beautifully decorated by the owner; each room had its own individual charm. The beds are very comfortable as well....

Were told someone would be at the house between 2 and 4 but we tried calling from 1:30 to 3:00 and got voice message. Finally at 3 someone showed up. Nice room, old pillows. Very modest breakfast. Good location. Able park right in front of the place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Carriage House. The room was a good size with a modern bathroom and it had a large balcony accessible from the room. The property was playfully decorated with collections of objets d'art from around the world. Breakfast was self-serve in the large sunny kitchen with a good selection of cereals, yogourt, fruit and...
