Comfortable B&B

3.8 on July 27, 2016

The location is rather convenient with the subway station nearby, and public transport in front of the building that goes to the Museum Miles. We stayed here for 5 nights, its a very cosy place and the apartment is very well maintained. And we really enjoyed the home pastries freshly made every morning for breakfast. Both the hosts - Carlos and Cesar, are really friendly and helpful. They are always ready to provide information about the city, and making our stay be more pleasant.


Second best secret in The City

4.8 on July 23, 2016

Convenient, cozy, tranquil--we found Cesar and Carlos to be the ultimate hosts. Follow Carlos to find the best kept secret of the city--wherever he might be the chef! The whole experience was just like being at home, but with a delicious breakfast.


Great place to stay

Carlos and Cesar were great hosts. They were very accommodating with our checking in/out times. The room was clean and quiet (we expected NYC to be noisy). Our breakfasts were delicious - freshly baked muffins or scones each morning. The BnB's location was also perfect - a couple blocks from the subway lines. They also recommended restaurants in the area and they were spot on!


Outstanding!

We have stayed in Carlos&César's place for 6 nights and we got everything we were looking for: very nice hosts (we felt free but not neglected, they have been always there to solve any doubt: gospel services, concerts, mall shopping...) a comfortable place to stay (and it was pretty too!) and a perfect daily breakfast, with no exceptions! We will definitely ask them again whe we go back to NY. Thank you very much, Carlos&César!! G&O


Wonderful Place and Fabulous Hosts

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights. The room is lovely, and certainly larger than any hotel room. The beds were exceptionally comfortable and it was so nice to have a real bathroom (complete with robes). The area is safe and the subway is a very short walk. Carlos and Cesar are wonderful hosts, welcoming and kind. Our breakfast of homemade baked goods and much more was fantastic, not to mention the best coffee I've had in NY. I would stay here again in a "NY minute."


Die beste Übernachtung in New York

5 on January 16, 2015

Ich bin mehrfach im Jahr in New York und übernachte immer hier, denn es ist die beste und leckerste Übernachtungsadresse in New York bei fabelhaftem Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis!


Amazing. Exceeded all our expectations!

This bed and breakfast is everything it's advertised to be and more. The hosts are friendly and welcoming. The location was convenient and neighborhood safe. We enjoyed homemade pastries and to-die-for coffee! This is the best deal in NYC!


Better than any hotel in New York!

5 on May 11, 2014

I brought my mother to the city for her birthday, and we couldn't have asked for better accommodations! The building is a beautiful luxury high rise with a concierge. We had our own living room and dining area, a private bathroom larger than any NYC hotel could offer, and a lovely, comfortable room. The breakfasts of fresh homemade pastries every morning were fantastic - Carlos is an amazing chef! The bedroom has a large TV, closet space, and two incredibly comfortable beds. They even provide free wifi and umbrellas for bad weather. There is a nice laundry room down the hall, so you can pack light if you have a long stay. We could come and go as we pleased, and the innkeepers gave us total privacy. We only saw them at breakfast each morning. Carlos and Cesar are very friendly and helpful, and made us feel very welcome. They had plenty of recommendations for local dining, and provided us with maps and guidebooks of the city. This is the only place I will ever stay when I am in the city!


Great value and a wonderful experience

Carlos and Cesar were extremely friendly, helpful, and hospitable. Their place was cozy, clean, and perfect for a short stay in the city. They made a delicious breakfast for us each morning and let us come and go as we pleased. It’s located very close to several subway/bus stops. We’d recommend “My Favorite Place” to anyone traveling!


Best breakfast in New York and possibly the US

4.8 on November 28, 2013

We stayed at my favorite place b&b for 5 days during our honeymoon in the States. When we arrived a nice room and a bouquet of flowers were waiting for us. Very nice welcome, super friendly hosts. You can ask them anything and they will help you out whenever. So everything is very good or even perfect and then there is... the breakfast. It's not just any breakfast. It's amazing breakfast!! (Made especially for you every morning...) We are definitely planning on dropping by again on our next trip! Thank you Carlos & Cesar :)
