“We will be back”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We spent 8 nights in the Malu room with a shared bath. The room was spacious and nicely decorated, the king sized bed was very comfortable and everything was clean. However, it was the personal touch and a high level of service that made this place special. In addition to the airport pickup and Amtrak station dropoff, David was there to shuttle us to and from the metro station throughout our stay. Chef George's breakfasts were exceptional and varied including fresh fruit, eggs made to order, sausages, hash browns, homemade apple butter, etc. On the morning of our departure, we were provided with freshly baked banana bread for our train trip (and this was after breakfast!) Both David and George went above and beyond to ensure that we enjoyed our time in DC. We truly felt like we were staying with friends and thoroughly enjoyed our morning chats! We will be back!

Great place! Spacious rooms, tastefully decorated, lots of charme and personal touch - and the best: George and David the owners, they really seem to love what they are doing and do their very best to assure an awesome stay. I extended my stay TWICE and stayed 5 nights instead of just 2 nights initially planned.... well, I guess that says it all. - The neighborhood is totally fine, quite residential and a walkable distance to the nearest Metro station Benning Street.

My wife and I stay almost exclusively at bed and breakfast places. We like to talk to other people from different parts of the world or country and especially like that the hosts usually can tell us sights to see, the "in" places etc.
However, This was the first time we took our daughters to one. One is 16 the other is 10. Jorge and David couldn't have been more inviting. The girls were complaining all the way from NYC to DC that we weren't staying at just a "hotel " but when we left they had to admit they had a great time staying at their first b&b.
Jorge was most gracious at trying to cajole our 10 year old to eat stuff she may not normally and was incredibly open to making any breakfast any of us wanted. The food was great (above and beyond any other b&bs we have been to )
David was great with my older daughter too who was interested in travel and hearing about the islands he comes from.
We all enjoyed ourselves immensely and couldn't recommend this place enough. This would be the only place I would stay on a return trip to DC (if it was available )

Thank you again David an Jorge

My 17 year old daughter and I made this our last stop on our east coast tour. We had an amazing time with David, George and other guests. Awesome food, clean,,spacious and comfy rooms with all of the amenities. Malolo B and B was truly one of the highlights of our trip. We highly recommend this spot for anyone visiting the DC area. We can't wait for our next trip:) Aloha and Mahalo, David and Chef George!

We traveled to the Nations Capitol as a family celebration, and happened upon the Malolo B@B for our home away from home on vacation. David and George we extremely friendly, accomodating and treated us like family. We were promptly picked up at the air port. We were given metro passes, detailed the uses and ensured we had ease of moving about D.C. The rooms were spacious, clean and the food was awesome. Breakfast was a treat with fresh fruits, eggs cooked to order and awesome service. We even had Chef George cook us a multi-course meal for dinner that rivals any five star hotel or restaurant. We left every day for our adventures feeling like we were home, and were treated with the friendliest, courteous and family friendly atmoshere. We had a White House tour and an Evening Parade at the Marine Barracks (Highly reccomend), David was kind enough to personally drive us to both events and deliver uis to the front door step. The Malolo experience was so wonderful, my two daughters were so sad to leave, and miss the friendly treatment and wonderful service from these two incredible hosts. I would reccomend any trip to Washington D.C. be it business, pleasure, weekend or vacation stay with the Malolo ..... It just doesnt get any better !!!! Awesome, Outstanding, Incredible, Friendly.... Running out of adjetives to use, but this was a memorable and very, very happy experience !!! Thank You just doesn't seem adequate !!!!
David and George are wonderful, great hosts, friendly, helpful and hilarious..... You will feel like they are family when you get there, during your stay, and when you have left !!!!Memories were made there with my family, and we are very gratefull, and have some lasting memories !!!! David and George are the Very Best !!!!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are clean, brightly painted, and clean !!!!

Stayed over the fourth of July week end. Had a weather delay coming in and they accommodated that as I got in a half a day late! The property is awesome, my room was excellent, clean and well appointed, I got there on the fourth, David and Jorge had friends for the DC area over for a cook and I was asked to join in the fun. Dinner was excellent! I don't think I've ever felt as at home when traveling. I have done a lot of travel all aver the world. I will come back and stay there again on my next visit. I have already recommended them to friends and associates.
David and Jorge are truly concerned for their customers and go out of their way to assure you have a great stay.

Room Tip: I had the largest room and it was at the top of the stairs on the second level, but all rooms looked...
