Located in Dupont Circle, one of Washington DC's best neighborhoods, Akwaaba DC offers visitors a central, safe and beautiful Bed and Breakfast to call home while visiting our Nation's Capitol. Situated at 17th and R Streets, in a 1890s historic townhouse, guests can choose from 7 individually decorated guest rooms, each with private bath, or an apartment vacation rental with accommodations for up to 6. The Inn is decorated with a literary theme, celebrating the work of several African American authors, such as Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston and Toni Morrison. Rooms are appointed with quality linens, select antiques, and modern amenities like wireless internet, cable TV and personal refrigerators.
A home, hot cooked breakfast is served each morning in the formal dining room. Choose to dine at the large dining room table; or one of the tables for 2 under the windows. Late afternoons, the B&B serves light appetizers and refreshments.
All of Washington is just steps from the front door, either walking or using the Metro system. Subway access is a little over 4 blocks, less than a 10 minute walk, and a major bus line to the White House is just a the corner. If you are here for a convention at the Convention Center, or to see the Smithsonian Museums and Monuments, you will find Akwaaba DC a convenient choice.
