Awful hostess

Poor treatment and hospitality.

Best Service EVER..!!

The level of service I received from Nicole regarding my stay was amazing, I had some last minute changes, instead of making me feel like a burden she was responsive and caring. In this day in age, most companies, large or small; put the dollar before good customer service, not here..If you want a peaceful stay with outstanding service..this is the place! When I visit NY, this will be my go-to place!

Very nice stay with family

We ´ve been for 2 nights in Brooklyn and we had a very nice stay at Exquisite. It is not very far from JFK and the beaches. Absolutely recommendable.

Great bed and breakfast! Exceeded expectations!

Stay was great and comfortable. I was also a novice in using the subway here, but host was very helpful in putting me through.

Nice tree line street residential area

My stay was pleasant and comfortable for the most part. However the evening into the night was very cold and uncomfortable. I must say that the Innkeeper did try to make me warm by covering the window A/C unit and giving me an additional blanket, since the heat was scheduled to be turned on until Oct. 15 and my stay was 10/6 - 10. The breakfast was just not what I expected; it was self-service which was fine by me. The very basic products were provided in the cupboards and fridge. A bachelor type set up, it wasn't enticing at all. I bought breakfast on the road everyday. No saving there. The bathroom is small but functional and needs some repairs. The shower door doesn't close properly so there's a shower curtain. The shower drainage is poor, the water backs up. The bathroom door and tiles needs some repairs as well. While I'm on the subject the main door to the house needs adjusting so that you don't have to slam it to close. If you rent a car there is parking except for when school is in secession and street cleaning days. Nicole and her son are very friendly and helpful. I would stay there again, and my hope it that my review is looked at as constructive.

Good for budget traveler and people who are Ok with small spaces

Room: It was fine but I think its a little pricey for a BnB that is not in the heart of Manhattan. The price maybe a little costly but the owner/caretaker were very helpful and accommodating. I stayed in the blue room (located in the basement (no A/C and you can hear footsteps and noise that's coming from the top floor). It has a small bed (good for 1 person) and a closet. If you're considering this Bnb, I'd suggest select room from the top floor. Location: It's an hour commute (subway) from Canarsie to Time Square so that's one thing to consider. For lone travelers (specially women) I would not recommend staying in that area because its quite a walk from the train station to the guesthouse and walking on the streets of Canarsie at night time may not be safe unless you're willing to shell out $$$ for a cab ride, then it's fine . Although the street where the guesthouse is located looks peaceful, the surrounding neighborhood I think is not for everyone. I suggest you do some research first about this area so you would be aware of what its like to stay there.
