The Kalorama Guest House, Washington
The big disappointment was advetised transportation to/from the airport. When i called to schedule a few days before travel i was told that amenity is not available even though it is clearly printed in the properties file. It was one of the main reasons i chose this property, to avoid cab fares.

Amazing service and location; great values
Great location and great service. Good breakfast buffet (both cold and hot foods). Charming bohemian house, full of character. Great value for this neighborhood. Highly recommended.

Jack is the friendliest innkeeper I have ever met! He greeted me at the door with a big smile and a friendly handshake, and makes it a point to call every guest by name. If you need ANYthing he is eager to help! He’s also a really nice guy to chill with and chat for a while. This is a great place, and it’s like a two block walk to the metro. Def visit the Cathedral nearby.

Nice place, need to warn guests about the stairs
Lovely simple affordable place in a great location - but beware, you may be carrying your luggage up three flights of stairs.

Review of Kalorama Guest House
The manager was very helpful and made every effort to meet our needs. He definitely deserves five stars for his professionalism. The breakfast was good and plenty was available. The Guest House is located in a great neighborhood and is close to good restaurants and a Metro station. The only negative aspect to our stay was that parts of the building are in need of refurbishment, such as new carpeting and painting. With a few key improvements, I would give it the highest rating.
