Handsome building over 100 years old. The integrity of the building has been left in tact, so the room sizes are a little odd, but worth the atmosphere. Lovely back garden sitting area. Excellent hostess. I'll stay here again.
This is a very informal,very freindly place to stay. You will arrive and wonder if you`ve made a big mistake-HOWEVER-you will leave being glad you booked.After spending each day in Manhatten it was great to get back to a real community.This is real Brooklyn-NOT the upmarket version at the Brooklyn Bridge area. We found the location very convenient.If we go to ny again we will stay here--that says it all.Not perfect, but more than adequate.Owner/manager(Zenobia), very freindly & helpful. Not a lover of shared bathrooms or connecting doors between other rooms even though they`re locked.Nothing at this hotel would stop me from using it again. Your initial reactions to this area & hotel will mislead you-I was scared-but could not have been more wrong.Used all the local amenities, day & night & felt safe & secure. No signs up to say this is a hotel.Us British would refer to this as a b&b, or a Boarding House.
The apartment is adorable with a lot or character and it's located in a safer residential area of Brooklyn while still conveniently located to everything you need. A block from the subway, 20 minutes to Manhattan, walking distance to bars and brunch locations, and 10 minutes from the Brooklyn Bridge. It was very private, I never had to see anyone, but they were always available by phone if I needed them and very accommodating. They let me keep my baggage there after check out so that I could keep exploring. I would go back and have already started recommending them to my friends.
It was quiet, comfortable and clean. I prefer not to share bathroom facilities. But, it wasn't a problem.
