Best Bang for your Buck! at The Harbor House (Staten Island, New York)

5 reviewed on May 26, 2016

My brother, nephew, husband & I stayed here this past Friday - Monday and it was wonderful! We used to live in NYC and my husband is a native New Yorker, so my brother & nephew asked us for a personal tour of NYC. And this was the perfect place to stay. It's quiet, has a wonderful porch, a park is next door, and it's on NY Harbor, so there are wonderful views. We even saw a freighter turn around. It's only a few minutes to the Staten Island Ferry and then you are in the most exciting city in the world! My husband and I stayed in the Manhattan room and loved it! The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was good, and the view was phenomenal! We will stay there again next time we are in the city. Initially my brother and nephew had the Madison room. When I booked the reservation, it had a bunk bed and a sink. When we arrived, the bunk bed had been replaced by a double bed. It was a tight fit for them. The Mr. Moe attempted to rectify the situation, but the first solution didn't work out well. But the next day when a better room was available, the he gave it to my brother & nephew. The room they were given was the Verrazano room! The best room! They were so happy! And the rates! You can't beat the rates! Best in NYC, unless you want to stay in a hostel or flop house!!! Next time we go to NYC, (assuming we don't stay with friends), this is where we will stay!

Sankofa Aban Bnb - May 2016 at Sankofa Aban Bed and Breakfast (Brooklyn, New York)

5 reviewed on May 20, 2016

I absolutely love staying at Sankofa Aban Bed and Breakfast - I am able to park my car on the street out front when I drive. The subway is a block away- Debbie will call a car to pick you up if you prefer. Shopping is very convenient all within a couple of blocks. The beds are comfortable, the breakfast is scrumptious. The Brownstone Jazz Fish Fry on Friday night and Saturday night is an outstanding event with unparalleled talent and I can just go to my room right afterwards. I will return again and again. A great experience.

I love it, highly recommended at Eve's Bed and Breakfast (Brooklyn, New York)

4.4 reviewed on February 28, 2016

I am very happy I booked this place. My family of 4 stayed here for a period of 9 days in January. The apartment is very large and has lots of space. I visited many hotels in the past and the difference is amazing. I felt very safe here, like I was in my own home. The service was excellent - Eve the owner was kind, hospitable and friendly. We enjoyed going into Manhattan with the subway - easy and fast to get around. The area is fantastic - it looks like a postcard with trees and green everywhere. Eve's Place is a breathe of fresh air in the middle of New York. Warm, family feel. Many stores in the local neighborhood for food and day to day items. I thank Eve for everything and highly recommend this place.

Clean, comfortable, convenient and quiet at Oyo Bed & Breakfast (Brooklyn, New York)

5 reviewed on November 19, 2015

I really enjoyed my ten-day stay at Oyo Bed and Breakfast. The place is kept clean, the bed was very comfortable and Sally made sure I had everything I needed on a daily basis. Breakfast offerings are generous and it's make your own, so it fits your schedule. There is a large fridge in the shared kitchen where you can keep food and there is a microwave, kettle and Keurig for heating needs. I lived in Brooklyn for a long time so part of the attraction here is the proximity to friends and other attractions nearby, but it's very convenient to Manhattan. Within about a 10-15 minute walk you have access to the 2,3,4,5,A and C trains that go into Manhattan, usually on an express track. You also have the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and Prospect Park within walking distance. There is a wide variety of bars and restaurants within blocks too. Thank you Oyo!

A wonderful place to arrive, when you are thousands of miles from home. at The Harbor House (Staten Island, New York)

4.6 reviewed on September 30, 2015

What we expected when we arrived was a clean and serious location to stay. This was real but we felt very welcome. The special quality of the treatment by Moe was his real interest to make us feel comfortable in his kindly way. The house and area itself has the exclusive spirit of a place where stories arrive from the whole world and decide to get roots in Harbor Houses garden.

Sankofa Aban-Bed at Sankofa Aban Bed and Breakfast (Brooklyn, New York)

4.2 reviewed on August 13, 2015

...Epitome of a quiet, tree lined, brownstone Brooklyn block. Intimate w/stellar and friendly service. Staying here after a hectic trip, totally recharged my battery. I would strongly recommend Sankofa Aban for anyone that needs that "pause" in the midst of a busy life.

A pleasant surprise ... at Parkside Bed & Breakfast (Brooklyn, New York)

3.8 reviewed on July 10, 2015

I booked two nights here expecting no more than an "adequate" room. I was pleasantly surprised by the spaciousness, elegance and quiet of the front room just one flight up facing Prospect Park. Jan, the host when I arrived, was friendly and helpful. Initially the room felt warm and humid, but a relatively new window air conditioner and the ceiling fan quickly brought relief and never faltered throughout my stay. It is a privilege to stay in one of these town mansions from an era when rooms had finishing touches such as "Greek key" patterned ceiling moldings and parquet floors. I also found the very large double or king-size bed exceptionally comfortable and clean. Highly recommended -- and conveniently close to the park, Brooklyn Museum and Botanic Garden.

A home away from home. at Handfinger's Hide-Away (Brooklyn, New York)

5 reviewed on July 01, 2015

I could honestly write a book on how wonderful my stay with Merrie was. I came to NYC for the first time to bring in the new year with my three best friends. We are all 20 and ready to get out of Indiana. When we first met Merrie face to face it was like catching up with an aunt, she was so easy to talk too and one of the sweetest gals I have ever met in my life. The place was clean, private, food was stocked and parking was easy. She showed us around and answered all of our questions and even told us stories. Subway is right around the corner and it is on the cutest street. Every time I go to NYC I will be staying here. Thank you so much for the perfect NYC trip.

A Stay with Debbie is a Wonderful Experience! at Sankofa Aban Bed and Breakfast (Brooklyn, New York)

5 reviewed on June 02, 2015

My adult daughter and I stayed for two nights over the 2015 Memorial Day Weekend in the Purple Haze room on the third floor. The B&B is about a 5 minute walk from the subway station. The street is well kept and neat. Being a holiday weekend, residents were out late, so putting on the AC solved the noise issue perfectly. We loved the original details throughout the brownstone, such as hardwood molding, pressed tin ceiling, mantles and fireplaces (non-working). Debbie's decorating style involves lots of draped fabric, but it is not frou-frou. It is elegant, even in the shared bathroom which was always spotless. Debbie is a warm and enthusiastic hostess with a great sense of humor. She will do anything she can to accommodate her guests. She has lots of good information to share about the city and her neighborhood. Spending time with her was a highlight of our trip. Plan to attend the jazz and wine performance on Friday or Saturday nights (half price for guests) that Debbie's partner Eric plays bass for. They have a rotating series of other musicians who play with him. Eric is so proud of the neighborhood and will tell you lots about its history and musicians. Be sure to have the Fish Fry at 10:30 (included). Debbie cooks a great fish, broccoli-slaw and cornbread meal. Speaking of cooking, she took us out to the local crepe restaurant for breakfast the day after the jazz evening--which was excellent. Having worked in a B&B, I appreciate that it is a reasonable way for her to manage breakfast for her guests after a late night of jazz the night before. Monday morning, with no jazz the night before, she made an incredible salmon Eggs Benedict with spinach. All in all--we had a full and enriching experience with Debbie and Eric. We recommend this B&B highly--and we have stayed in many, many B&Bs over the last 20 years.
