Celia's Place
Ranked #28 of 35 Washington DC B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 April 2013

Location: a very pretty neighborhood 2 blocks from the Capitol with public transportation and plenty of good restaurants close by.

Breakfast: Celia offered a wonderful fresh mixed berry/fruit salad, local bakery bread for toast, wide selection of cereals and juices, delicious coffee, Washington Post or NY Times papers, plus delightful conversation as you wish -- in a sunny dining room. There is joyful art wherever you look -- a wonderful way to start the day!

Room: Clean, with a very comfortable bed, TV, stacked washer/dryer in closet. It adjoins a bright sitting room with more fascinating art and a great selection of books -- the perfect setting to ponder all the monuments and museums you have visited during the day.

Hospitality: Celia is a welcoming, delightful, easy going and fascinating hostess! I had many great conversations with her (one of her gorgeous cats joined us occasionally) and learned about lesser known DC history and areas to explore.

I had a brief 2-night stay during cold winter weather. It was a business visit. I found Celia's to be comfortable, like staying in a friend's extra guest room, which was exactly the mood I was looking for. The row house is narrow and the guest room has an attached sitting room that catches the morning sun and has a table to work on and a couch to sit on. Celia had just the right blend of being interested in her guest, and getting on with her own busy life and staying out of the guest's way. I thought it was perfect. The neighborhood has much to offer within walking distance and it would be delightful to return and explore more of the area. I would recommend this to single female travelers for sure.

Room Tip: There is only one room.

Lovely home with wonderful style. With books, artwork, and framed photography at every corner, along with the house's natural historic charm, it is definitely a peaceful and creative space. The bed and couch in sitting room are extremely comfortable!

I'm not a big breakfast person, but there was a large spread for me to choose from.

It's also around the corner from just about everything. When all closes in DC around 11p, there are a string of bars that are open with full delicious menus.

I only stayed in DC for a couple days, so I didn't get to see everything. But when I return, I'll definitely be giving Celia a call. She was courteous, sweet, funny, and very helpful!

Celia's Place is one of the most unusual and interesting B&Bs we have ever stayed in: the house is full of books, photographs and fascinating items connected to Celia's life. Her recommendation on places to see and things to do in Washington were much appreciated and we learnt a lot just from talking to her. All the 'normal' B&B aspects (food, location as advertised, cleanliness, Wifi, general comfort and welcome) were more than met. We hope she will continue to open her house for many more decades, as we'd certainly like to return.

Celia's Place is an ideal place to stay. Warm, welcoming with the hostess' lifetime of collection of books and art adding to the charm. Walking distance to subway, Eastern Market as well as the Mall. Would definitely recommend especially for the single female traveler!
