Charming interiors in a quiet spot of the city

5 out of 5
by from New York, NY
Posted Feb 17, 2017
Pros: The interiors were almost entirely original, from the 19th century, and in great condition. If you like historic buildings, this the place to stay.
Cons: Staff were not always on site, but were very helpful when they were.
Location: Close to Prospect Park and Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and the rest of the city via public transport.
Easy check in and was upgraded to a bigger room. Fairly priced. Extremely quiet for the location. Very clean rooms and well equipped kitchen. Comfortable furniture. Very spacious bathroom on each floor. It seemed like some of the other guests were regulars. Amazing interiors, with original woodwork and stained glass.

It s near the subway station. Just 10min walk. I like the building, quaint but comfortable enough. It's on a very nice and quiet street. However the house keeper is not around most of the time. That s the only complaint.

Deceitful marketing!

Pros: The best part is the block, it's nice and pretty quiet. It's not too far from the subway. The brownstones are a nice touch on the entire block.
Cons: See above!
Location: There are places to eat and some neighborhood shopping - all within walking distance. The subway is just a few blocks. Parking is hard to find.
I don't know if the woman who answered the door - if she's the owner or caretaker, but there's no pride in this bed & breakfast, it's very sterile. The "ebony" room is really a closet, there's no dresser, no mirror, a person can't turn around in the room without having to open and/or close the door. There were only 2 sets of towels in a dusty small closet. The bathroom is pretty roomy but there was a sizable clump of hair around a white plastic drainage in the bathtub - it was obviously not well-cleaned. The stove is pretty small and it didn't work, unless the other guests used matches. There are 3 guest-rooms on the 3rd/top floor and only 1 small table and 2 chairs in a small kitchenette. According to the website, the advertisement is $10 for breakfast but that's not true at all. You do your own cooking, but how can you if you didn't know that you need matches to light the stove and it's very small. The main floor is so bland and uninviting, it's as if the guests are discouraged from sitting at the dining room table for too long. There's no one around during the day, some guests arrived a little bit early than check-in, maybe 2 hours, they could only drop off their luggage and go back outside. I know this because I was the only only there when they rang the bell as I was on my way in and out. Even when I checked out, the woman wasn't there... what should be done with the used towels or the key. I would not recommend this bed & breakfast.

Warm Atmosphere, An OK Stay

3 out of 5

Cons: More basic toiletries should be offered.
Location: A 10 minute walk from the station, near Prospect Park, a nice place to visit.
I had an OK time. My room was nice and quiet and had a great bed and look to it. Shared bathroom was fine too. I brought my own towels, because while there were towels offered in it, they were snatched up quickly and unless you want to ask for some, I would advise bringing your own. The b&b is very on-your-own and you don't see anyone else in the building aside from a couple other people who are staying. I thoroughly enjoyed the vintage and homey look and feel to it.

Clean and quiet

Posted Apr 6, 2016
Pros: Good value for money, clean and close to transit
Location: Close to botanical gardens and prospect park. Otherwise I was more interested in going into town or more into downtown brooklyn
The room was clean and close to the subway. It only took about 25 minutes to get to Times Square station. Bus stop at the end of the road. mIchelle kindly arranged for someone to be there to let me leave my suitcase as I was arriving early. Large sized shared bathroom supplied with things that one might need such as hairdryer , body wash shampoo q tip etc.. Very handy as I had forgotten my tooth brush.

We had a great time staying at Leffert's. The hotel is on a quiet street. The only issue is that as it is an old brown stone the floors do creek so you will hear other occupants in the morning but other then that we loved it. It's also very close to the metro and we had no problems coming back at midnight from shows on Broadway.

Absolutely beautiful Victorian home.

The lovely hostess make feel at home with a warm welcome however she is not inquisitive, she ask questions about your stay in order to know your taste to direct you to places you might like. Then, when you are satisfied with the advice she leaves in to enjoy your stay. The rooms are delightful, the beds are very comfortable, and the kitchen and bathrooms are clean. I already recommended this Bed and breakfast to friends and I plane on coming back there next year.

Very clean. Sondra was there to greet us but the lack of sign was not helpful. Residential neighborhood close to shops and transportation. Breakfast is non-existent (boxes of cereal) but nice kitchenette with coffee making possibilities, stove,fridge and micro. Lots to do in area and 30 minutes by subway to the city. Recommend!

The room was in the third floor and it had not elevator, we shared the kitchen and bathroom with other 3 guests and we had to clean clean up our room and kitchen after U.S. for the week we paid there; it was our first time in a bed and breakfast place And I didn't enjoy it.

Perfectly fine

I have stayed here two years in a row since my son lives a couple of blocks away in Brooklyn. this is a very nice place, very clean, and recently painted, with new lamps, and I had a flat screen TV in my room. there is no breakfast served here, but there is a kitchen, coffee and tea pots, coffee and tea, and other cereals in the cupboard. But there are many cute breakfast places around ( I recommend Tip of the Tongue, at 243 Lincoln), and there are delis in which to buy food, and bring to the hotel. You must share a bathroom, but the rooms themselves are very nice and so are the two bathrooms. The only problem for me is that you cannot avoid steps, because the rooms are on the second and third floors, as well as the bathrooms and kitchen. We once had a large suite on the first floor, but you still must climb the steep steps for the bathroom on the 2nd. The neighborhood is beautiful, with tree lined streets and flowers, and the homes are Million $ plus homes. Very pretty, safe, inexpensive, and secure.
