Alexandria's Treasure House is a little treasure. Moina and Lee are both caring hosts. Moina has quite a story to tell. Her history is entwined with the history of Washington, DC. And she is willing to share if you are willing to listen. We had the on-suite room. It was large and very comfortable. It had the little details that made our stay not only comfortable but charming. Breakfasts are simple but filling. You will never leave hungry. In our opinion, the location was great. It was a beautiful walk from the B&B to the train stations. If you enjoy older architecture, this is a fun walk. There is a hill but it isn't intense. After a long day walking all over DC, the walk from the station to the B&B was a bit slower though. All in all, we would gladly stay with Moina and Lee again.

The room was very nice, large, and comfortable. The breakfast wasn't up to par compared to ther B and B's in which we have stayed.

We loved everything about our stay at Alexandria's Treasure House... but mostly Moina and Lee, who were the most thoughtful and kind hosts that you could hope for- they made us feel right at home. The house is located in a peaceful neighborhood of large houses, a short walk from the Metro and Old Town. The bedrooms and common rooms are in great condition, roomy, and nicely decorated. Breakfast was delicious, and a friendly affair with Moina giving us some advice on the area, and telling some stories about her history in the area. Overall, staying here made our adventure thoroughly enjoyable. We will definitely be returning!

Our room was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The location was good for easy access to the historical downtown area. Our host was very gracious and the morning's breakfast was very good.

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.

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.

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.

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.
