Fabulous hosts, warm , inviting and very creative. Loved our visit here and would totally recommend this lodging for future excursions. Fantastic location - an easy walk to the local subway and local shops. Highly recommend this place and the hosts. Liz and Vern Nicolson New Zealan/London (based)

Robert could not be a more accommodating host. I forgot my dopp kit and he provided a toothbrush and past, had the wrong charger and again he loaned me one. I am an early riser and my second day there had things out 1/2 an hour earlier than usual. Will definitely stay there again when an overnight in brooklyn is called for

Loralei Bed and Breakfast was an absolute gem of a find. From the beginning, Robert and Lance were timely and efficient in their responses to our emails and phone calls. They also gave us tips on how to get from the airport to their neighborhood in Brooklyn. The house itself is old and beautifully furnished, and the rooms cozy and comfortable. The owners themselves were extremely friendly and warm and made us feel very welcome. I gave the dining a 4/5 only because meals are not included at Loralei. However, breakfast was plentiful, healthy, and fresh. In addition, there are plenty of excellent restaurants very close by. The Loralei is in Brooklyn, but for us this was actually a plus, as the neighborhood is quiet, residential, and clean. We went for a few lovely walks. The Loralei is on a direct line into the city; it takes about 25 minutes to get to Times Square. All in all, a truly lovely place and I will stay there from now on.

Hi After just a little of more than one year, just to recap how wonderful my experience was and is of staying at the Loralei Band B. I can only say ... Thank You Rob and Lance for a perfect New York Experience (more expensive hotels on 5th Ave have NO REAL chance of equalling this experience) because that's only tourist NYC and with the Loralei guests will experience the REAL NYC believe me I speak the truth!!!!! And I have NO financial gain or other wise in stating so. Honestly!!!!!!!!! Pete in East Yorkshire England Loralei ...... HIGHLY RECOMENDED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was perfect for us ! Our intention was to get as much as possible out of New York so we needed a calm place close to the subway and we got it ! We will never forget Robert´s concern - he was always there with good solutions whatever we brought up from our adventures in NC. We started every day with a great breakfast too !
