We stayed in both the Memorabilia and the Regal Retreat....Both rooms were excellent, however, the black memorabilia room was the most, well,memorable...filled with wonderful gems from the past, and terrific books to delve into. The bathroom was a highlight, especially when we returned from dinner our first night to a unexpected, romantic surprise (We won't give it away, because you must experience it for yourselves!!!) Our breakfast table was filled with friendly patrons from all over...Netherlands, Greece, etc... all enjoying a hearty meal, and stimulating conversation....added to by our terrific innkeeper, Monique. We were directed to a great local restaurant, a close subway connection (only 20min to Manhattan with stops!!), and helped with entertainment ideas. It is truly an experience to see this mansion restored....an apparent labor of love. We highly recommend this to all who are visiting Brooklyn.

This was my first time staying at a bed and breakfast and I loved every minute of my stay!!! If you are looking for a relaxing, romantic, and/or homelike atmosphere..look no further. If I plan to go to a city that has an Akwaaba B&B, I will definitely not hesitate to INNDULGE! There's no phone or tv in the room which allows you to spend QUALITY time with your mate. I would even go solo! ENJOY!!

We spent our wedding night in the Jumping the Broom suite. It was beautiful! The innkeeper was incredibly accommodating of our late arrival. The room was candlelit and rose petals were on the bathroom floor when we arrived. In the morning she brought our breakfast on a silver platter! What more could you ask for? Thanks, Akwaaba!
