Ideally located at the top of Historic Old Town. Easy walk to the King Street and Metro. Ten minutes from Washington D.C. Lots of shopping and restaurants in Colonial Alexandria!

Moina was a very gracious host and was always happy to answer any questions we may have had.

The Treasure House is wonderful! We spent a full week in the Prince room and found the accommodations to be very comfortable. The room was small but adequate. The small flat screen TV is attached to broadcast channels. Our room and the adjacent guest room are on the lower level and they do share the small bathroom sandwiched between rooms. However, during this week there was no one in the other room so we had a private bath. We have stayed at other B&Bs with shared bath and it mostly works well. Breakfast was delicious and varied. We seldom needed any lunch and simply ate an early dinner in Alexandria. Monia and Lee are wonderful hosts. Monia knows the area and the history very well. The neighborhood is very quiet and seemed very safe. The neighbors were out walking and jogging so we felt very comfortable walking all around the area. The inn is about 0.6 mile from the King Street Metro station. We walked to Metro every morning and visited museums and memorials on the DC mall all week and never moved the car parked in front of house. Look into a Metro Smartrip card for easy access to the entire subway system. The card can be used for the local Alexandria Dash buses (AT2, AT5, AT6) to get to bus stop at King St and Walnut within 300 feet of the inn if needed. Also there is some reasonable Smartrip meter parking at the Metro stop if the weather is really bad. Great place!

We enjoyed our one night at Alexandria's Treasure House. Moina is a wonderful host,and we had a pleasant visit with her after a delicious breakfast. It was a simple meal but carefully prepared and elegantly presented. The room was nicely appointed and very clean.

The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the common areas offered many places to relax in the evenings. Breakfasts were tasty and filling and Moina shares genuine interest in each of her guests, and offers good suggestions on local places to go. Near the Kings Street Metro, which offers convenient access to all of DC. We look forward to visiting the DC area again and staying at Alexandria's Treasure House!

I had a sudden business trip to Washington DC come and could not find a hotel room within a decent driving distance. My wife located the Alexandria's Treasure House and we made arrangements for me to stay for two evenings. It was such a pleasure to meet Lee and Moina and stay in their wonderful home. The room was great, the garden was spectacular, and I think I may have missed something special when I told Moina I didn't need her to make me a full breakfast everyday! I would recommend Alexandria's Treasure to anyone. Oh, and it's cheaper than a hotel.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Alexandria's Treasure House, and would second the positive comments others have made, and add that the real treasure is owner Moina Ratliff. She's seen and experienced much, having arrived in WDC in 1950 and worked on Capitol Hill for 26 years, and restored several homes in Old Town. Please take the time to visit with her.

Monia made this a truly special experience. With it's impeccable cleanliness and historical art and decor, this B&B is beyond reproach. I will most definitely return. Close to King street and near the ferry that takes you straight to the baseball stadium. So cute. Anyone would be so lucky to get to stay here!

A little tricky to find in this beautiful, quiet neighborhood of Alexandria with windy roads, but the accommodations were excellent and owner Moina was gracious and welcoming. Our room was very comfortable and the next morning Moina served eggs as requested, and we had a fun conversation about the history of the home and life in Alexandria. We'll be sure to stay again next time we're in the DC area.

Coming from the Southwest, the two of us were looking for a romantic get away to ever more into the holiday spirit. We decided on DC and Alexandria's Treasure House. This was an excellent choice. Situated near Old Town Alexandria, this B&B is in a great location for enjoying Alexandria's history and culture while offering very easy access to DC. We were driving a rental car and did not use the readily available public transportation. Alexandria's Treasure House has parking accessible from the alley and street parking out front. Parking during our sightseeing was a manageable challenge and having the vehicle provided great storage flexibility of jackets and such. Alexandria's Treasure House is nicely finished. The rooms are ample in size, very comfortable, and kept very clean. The bed is very comfortable. The breakfasts are very satisfying. Moina's hospitality is delightful. All in all, it would be an easy first choice to stay here again.
