The location is great with some nice neighborhood restaurants within a couple of blocks. The Metro is about 2 blocks away so very convenient. The owner is very nice. The room we had was very spacious and clean. The kitchen and bathroom were generally clean but could have used a more thorough cleaning i.e. corners, window sills, etc. It is an older brownstone, typical of the area, with lots of character. TV is very limited and WIFI a little sporadic but workable. We had good privacy and hardly saw the other guests. We had a shared kitchen - see the other reviews. The breakfast was continental i.e. bread, fruit but good - you could cook eggs if you wanted to. All in all an enjoyable stay at a great price compared to the NY hotel options.

First time staying at a B&B in Brooklyn and loved it. The room was clean and big. The bed was comfortable with clean sheets. The bathroom was in the hallway and was just fine. I was glad not to have to share it with anyone. As for the "Breakfast" the owner showed me where the eggs were in the refrigerator and how I could make them myself on the stove. This was not really an issue with me as I was planning on eating brunch at one of Brooklyn's many great restaurants. I went to Pillow Cafe and had an amazing brunch that my wife and I are still talking about. The only issue was parking. The other side of the street opens up for parking at 7:00 PM, so if you arrive before then you will have to drive around for a while until something opens up. Despite the paking, I would stay here again.

This place was a great find for a reasonable price. It also happened to be right across the street from the Oriental Pavilion in Prospect Park, where I attended a friend's wedding during my stay, so that was awesome. Breakfast was a make-it-yourself event, which was perfectly fine with me. Those looking for a huge spread of pancakes, muffins, etc. may want to look elsewhere. I was fine with bread, egg, fruit. There are markets nearby too for any other desired essentials, and having a kitchen available meant I was able to fix myself a pre-wedding-ceremony lunch while I was getting dressed. I loved the relaxed feel of this place, like I was visiting an out-of-town relative who'd given me the keys to his house and told me to make myself at home. I stayed in the 2nd floor king bedroom - extremely, incredibly spacious! Shared bath was not a problem for me. Really no street noise at all that I noticed. The rear bedroom on the 2nd floor faces the back garden that backs up to a frequently used train track. Those who are noise sensitive will want to avoid the back room. TV signal was pretty thin, but why go to NYC to watch TV, right? Beautiful old dark wood, heaps of character, bay window with window seat overlooking the street and then the park, extremely charming without any Victorian frilly fuss like I have seen at other B&B's. I would recommend this place highly.

The location is fantastic! Easy access to subways, Prospect Park right across the street, markets and restaurants within walking distance. The host went out of his way to make sure we were settled in. Breakfast is on your own but the full kitchen and quaint view from the king suite dining area windows over the garden more than make up for it. So spacious and affordable for a New York City location. We will definitely return and would highly recommend the Parkside B&B to our friends, family and business associates!
