lovely experience outweighs minor drawbacksPosted Oct 22, 2014 on Hotels.com
First, the positives: a great location, and a unique experience. You stay in a private home that is a B&B and you experience authentic jazz the way it used to be (provided you stay Fri/Sat). And, it is on the affordable side compared to most NYC area offerings. Minor drawbacks: you don't get some of the conveniences of a hotel such as daily/frequent room service, own bathroom, and on-time convenience (the breakfast was offered in a very leisurely fashion so I missed it 3 out of 4 mornings). Overall, I loved the place and the location, the nearby Le Paris Dakar cafe and the Nostrand Av Subway stop with A express to Manhattan were fabulous. And the music nights were delightful.

First B&B experiencePosted Oct 19, 2014
Pros: The room, Debbie and the proximity to some cool places to eat and the subway was 5 minutes away.
Cons: Debbie couldn't find our room key so we only had a key for the front door. Would have liked a key for our room but no biggie.
Location: There is a nice little café right at the corner of Macon & Nostrand. Or walk down to Fulton the subway is right there or walk along Fulton to Outpost
This was our first time staying in a B&B. Wasn't sure what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised and happy we chose to stay here instead of a typical hotel. The room was big, the bed was comfy and there was plenty of room to store our clothes. There was also a little area in the room tucked to the side with a private sink (the shared bathroom was just outside our door but we were the only ones on our floor for the duration of our stay). All in all the room was well decorated and we felt right at home. The house is on a quiet street in a fun part of Brooklyn. What really made our stay there great was our host Debbie. She was so welcoming and really makes you feel right at home. I really wasn't sure what it would be like staying at a b&b....but as she put it, "it's your home!"... and it really did feel that way!

It was awesome! There was the best Jazz show I have ever attended on Friday night. It was close to everything. Very clean. Very comfortable. Will definately go back.

Great Conversations, Interesting AmbiencePosted Aug 1, 2014
Pros: The owner's treatment of her guests, closeness to the subway, food and historic ambience.
Cons: Lighting in the room is very dark (using all lights available), but not a problem.
Location: Close to the A express line, not far from the weekend Brooklyn flea market and other Brooklyn landmarks.
Reading previous reviews, it's apparent that Debbie has listened to reviewers' comments. Extra towels, wash cloths, lotions, etc. are all provided (not that I was looking for that, but I did note that people had complained about this). My stay was very pleasant (Green Room) with air conditioning and ceiling fan as a respite to the summer's heat. Breakfast was served every day and I enjoyed conversations with Debbie and other travelers. She looks out for her guests and if you ask, she will help you. I loved sitting out at her backyard table in the morning, how conveniently close the B&B was to the subway stop, and the uniqueness of the place. There is a sink in the room with a toothbrush holder. If you are someone who enjoys adventure when you travel, talking to other travelers, and learning about the area and your host, you will enjoy this experience.

Great valuePosted Jun 28, 2014
Pros: Wonderful host, location, value
Cons: better wifi reception on 2nd floor
Location: all night pizza place near the subway was very tasty late at night after a few beers
I had a great time in this B&B and would recommend it. The room was clean and comfy. The shared bathroom was excellent. The host was a delight and I wish I had been a bit more sociable and woken up in time for breakfast at least once (my fault :)) or been there for the jazz gigs. The location was great as it was only 5 mins walk to the subway and decent little shopping district. The only downsides were the wifi didn't work amazingly on the 2nd floor although on the ground floor it was very quick. Also the key to my room couldn't be found but all the other guests were nice and nothing was missing. Overall I would definitely rate this B&B as excellent.

Best place in Brooklyn!Posted May 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
My husband and I loved it-- much better than our last NY stay in a hotel in Manhattan-- loved the neighborhood, great proximity to museums, and Debbie -and Spencer- both helped us out, made our stay that much better. A real neighborhood, in a beautiful brownstone, and a place worth getting to know. Highly recommended!
