A Great Place to Stay in Manhatten

4.6 on October 07, 2016

This is our second visit to Bubba and Bean. It's just as nice as it was before. Clement and Jonathan are only a phone call away and very helpful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and clean. The Lodges are close to many restaurants and the subway station. We did not require a car in the city. Close to Central Park, The Met and easy from here to visit the 911 Memorial and the Freedom Tower and Broadway. You will not be disappointed with staying at Bubba and Bean Lodges. The Pollocks

Dear Jonathan and Clement, We absolutely loved your apartment. It is perfect for 5 or 6 people. Very clean, close to subway and spacious (at least for NY). We will definitely recommend it to friends is they ever go to New York. Thank you for everything. We felt at home in your apartment.

Excellent value and a safe enjoyable place to stay

We stayed at Bubba & Bean in May 2013 travelling as a family. We found the place to be exactly as described and enjoyed our 8 day stay alot.The area was quiet at night and was nice to feel like we were living in New York. The 96th and 103rd street subway stations were within easy walking from the apartment and we felt totally safe in this area.Would we stay here again......most definitely

Excelente atencion y precio en NY

Un lugar impecable para residir en Manhattan. A solo 6 para das de metro del centro Bubba & Bean Lodges fue un lugar ideal por calidad de atencion, limpieza, servicios y precio razonable. Un capitulo aparte son los perritos Boston Terriers que dan nombre al lugar. Pidan que se los muestren ! No sirven desayuno ni comida

feel at home

I went to Mt. Sinai for surgery and stayed here the night before and my wife stayed for the week. We were looking for a reasonably priced place close to the hospital. This blew away any other place for price. When we went there we were pleasantly surprised at what a great place it was. Perfect for a get away, Central park just blocks away, the subway right there for access to everything NY. Jonathan and Clement were fantastic hosts, responsive and keep a great place. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Especially if you are at Mt. Sinai as it is a nice safe walk from here to the hospital.

A very good place in a calm area

A very good place in a calm area close the museums, central park and underground. Great breakfast at my ny bakery cafe close to the lodge!

Great find!

We have been to NYC many times over the years but have never found a value as good as this one. Our room was in the back and extremely quiet. Room was clean and well furnished. Treat basket was yummy and appreciated and local restaurant recommendations were spot on. Location is away from the touristy chaos but yet convenient to subway and in a nice area. Bubba and Bean is a great value and we highly recommend it!

We loved this place.

We stayed here for two weeks in January 2013. It was a lovely, well-equiped room. It was serviced regularly, had free wifi and great heating. The location is good, close to the subway and within walking distance of the Guggenheim, the Met and Central Park. We had a room at the back so we didn't have any of the Lexington Avenue traffic noise. We'd definitely stay here again.
