For the last several summers our business requirements have presented a trip to Washington DC. Each time we go we look forward to staying at the Kalorama guesthouse with this host/owner Jack. His attention to detail and gregarious nature always add to the enjoyment of these trips. We Harley suggest you take it vantage of this opportunity when traveling to this region.

Another great stay at Kalorama with Jack.

The Kalorama Guest House, owned and operated by Jack Shrestha, is a gem in the heart of our nation's capital. My wife and I have been guests at Jack's place for quite a few years and always considerate it the first priority to secure a reservation when knowing that either business or pleasure are going to take us to DC. The warm and consistently friendly atmosphere, the homey ambience and more than ample breakfasts make staying with Jack a pleasure as opposed to a sterile hotel.

Charming B&B

My Favourite place to stay in DC / Bethesda

I first selected this inn due to it's location near the red line on the metro. It's really easy to get around. The inn is in a great neigbourhood with a fine italian resraurant just minutes away and more choices a little further. The room I've stayed in (same room each time) is comfortable and perfect for one person. Breakfast is fantastic and when you get back at the end of the day, wine and cookies will greet you in the lobby. :D

A fantastic experience! Loved it!! Great value - highly recommend.

Kalorama Guest House was a great choice for my wife and I on our visit to DC. Everything was just as we expected, and Jack, the host, could not have been more helpful and friendly. He made it seem as though we stayed with an old friend, in an quaint historic house, that just happened to be located in a perfect location to visit DC. If you're wanting everything brand new, modern, and with all the fancy bells and whistles - see an over-priced high end chain. If you want a personal, friendly, decent, great location place to see Washington from - I highly recommend Jack and the Kalorama Guest House.

Home away from Home

The host, Jack, is friendly, helpful, and gracious. The Guest House is quiet and restful, in a lovely residential section of DC. It's near transportation and restaurants. The "continental" breakfast was more than adequate - Jack cooked some hot food each morning.

Very hospitable!

Jack and his staff were super nice and accommodating. It was a bit like staying with extended family. He gave us complimentary beer and wine and invited us for conversation among friends. Such a beautiful home and neighborhood.

I will stay here again

I had a one night stay here for a quick tour of the DC area and I could not have asked for more. We parked our car in the very safe neighborhood and caught a tour bus for the day. After the day of touring, took the train back, had dinner in the neighborhood and got a good night's sleep. Breakfast was excellent. Walked to the zoo before taking off for the rest of our road trip. Jack was all you could ask for in a host. Knowledgeable about the DC area, public transportation, neighborhood restaraunts. I loved the house and our room. I hope to bring the whole family back soon.

Well worth a return visit!

I stayed for two nights at Kalorama Guest House and I'm so happy not to have chosen any of the close hotels. The rooms are clean and the neighborhood is paceful. Mr Jack is very attentive and kindly help you for everything.
