Lovely house, not so close to Metro

3.6 on January 30, 2017

If you need a place to crash, this is your place. While I am sure some consider the Metro walking distance, the terrain is hilly, and with poor winter weather, I would recommend getting a car or a ride. The bed was extremely hard, and the breakfast was well intentioned but basic, and prepared by the lovely proprietress who must be in her 90s. I found it very difficult to be served by a dear, hard working woman who clearly deserves to retire but is charging on, as is her right, of course. Overall, a good stay.


GREAT PLACE TO STAY

DISCOVERED THIS BED AND BREAKFAST IN 2014. HAD TO RETURN. MOINA AND LEE ARE WONDERFUL HOST. CLOSE TO THE RAIL LINE INTO WASHINGTON DC (HATE TO DRIVE AND TRY TO FIND PARKING IN D.C.) ALEXANDRIA IS A GREAT CITY WITH PLENTY OF FINE DINING OPTIONS.


Just like home

Nice home, within .7 miles of King St metro stop. Walkable to Old Town Restaurants too. Very cleanly and loved getting to know the proprietor, Moina. What a doll. Shares good stories and provides a wonderful time. Felt like I had come home to momma.


It really is a Treasure!

Moina provides a spotless, comfortable home for your stay in the D.C. area. It's like visiting your grandma! Old-fashioned, cozy and friendly. Moina is elegant, intelligent and fun to spend time with. She made a delicious breakfast for us at whatever time we requested and sat to visit with us while we ate. It just felt natural to hug her when we checked out.


Charming and a very warm welcome

The one drawback was the absence of working wifi. I was in Alexandria and DC on business and this made things difficult for me.


Quiet getaway in Olde Towne Alexandria

4.8 on September 05, 2016

The Treasure House is a warm inviting place in a quiet area,full of vintage and thoughtful items for your use and very close to the free metro line. Moina and Lee are very welcoming. Rather than a menu, they ask you what you want for breakfast and that is what we got. So if you don't tell them, don't complain. We were there for an afternoon and evening in Olde Town and the next day at Mt. Vernon, which is close by. We would definitely stay again.


Quiet Refuge in Alexandria

4.6 on August 11, 2016

This is a peaceful retreat in the Rosemont neighborhood of Alexandria, within short walking distance of the King Street Metro Station. The hosts are experts in hospitality. I have stayed there several times in the last four years and I always have a good experience.


Nice night

3.6 on July 04, 2016

House is well maintained and the rooms are large and comfortable. We selected this location to be within walking/uber distance of some of our favorite spots in Del Ray and Old Town Alexandria. We didn't want a hotel. The Treasure House was perfect for our needs.


A treasure, indeed!

A very charming hostess and a lovely home. Moina was so very accommodating in every way possible. Very nice and clean room. Great neighborhood, walking distance to the Metro and the Old Town area. If you are looking for a lunch or dinner spot I highly recommend Bilbo Baggins!!
