Einfaches Wohnhaus, das zum B&B umgebaut wurdePosted Oct 28, 2015
Das Zimmer war so eng, dass ich mich kaum um die eigene Achse drehen konnte. Das Bett war ungewöhnlich hoch, aber bequem. Die Fenster amerikanisch-schlecht isoliert. Die Dame war nett und hat sich Mühe gegeben, hätte es aber ein Problem gegeben, hätte ich nicht gewusst, wie ich sie finde. Zudem hat es von außen keinerlei Werbung, so dass man sich erstmal einen Ast absucht. Die Ggegend war für Brooklyn ganz okay, aber man musste lange mit der Subway fahren, um nach Manhattan reinzukommen.

Absolutely beautiful Victorian home.Posted Oct 2, 2015
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.

Det hedder bed & breakfast, men ingen morgenmad?Posted Sep 8, 2015
Generelt har det været ok, men bilegenheden er en smule utryg, men samtidig noget af en oplevelse. Ligger i nedre Brooklyn og bære stort præg af at størstedelen af indbyggerne er fra Jamaica og hvad dertil høre.

Beautiful place in unique locationPosted Sep 8, 2015
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 finePosted Jul 7, 2015
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.

Comfortable room and convenient to bus and subway.Posted Jun 2, 2015
Pros: Would not call it a hotel, but a charming row house. Quiet, comfortable but not for anyone with difficulty walking steps.
Cons: Latch on the front gate repaired and shades as well as the sheer curtains to keep out light.
Location: Local neighborhood, with corner store etc. One block from the B41 bus, which goes up and down Flatbush . Close to Brooklyn Zoo and Prospect Park.
Not for older folks with bad knees or hips, no elevator. Charming row house on quiet street. Access to kitchen and living room. Breakfast is not provided, but cereal and coffee, tea and water available. Bathroom next to room, large and clean. Staff very friendly and accomodating. I asked for a bedside table for my c-pap and she brought me up a card table that fit between the bed and large leather living room type chair. Perfect for reading and writing material along with the T.V. remote for when you just want to relax.

A clean, well-lighted room...Posted May 5, 2015
Pros: I loved the excellent room rates, the clean and safe facilities, and the easy proximity to Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Cons: The Ebony Room doesn't have a chair, so the tall bed is the only seating. Perhaps a Shaker-style chair that hangs on the wall might be an option.
Location: Great range of restaurants, corner markets, and easy access to the beautiful Prospect Park.
I stayed in the Ebony Room for four nights, and this is the best bargain in New York. Located in a charming neighborhood just east of Prospect Park, just a few minutes' walk from the Prospect Park MTA station, with frequent service on the Q and N trains. Flatbush Avenue offers a widely diverse selection of restaurants and shops, all very convenient. The Ebony Room is just large enough for a twin bed, with a good-sized closet. The bed was excellent (a fine, firm mattress), and the room has lots of light. The shared bathroom just down the hall was spacious, spotlessly clean, and it was never a problem getting in. (There's another lovely bathroom on the first floor in case the 2nd floor one is occupied.) The shared kitchen contains modern appliances (refrigerator, stove, microwave), and is the perfect place to make breakfast or a snack. (Guests can request a full breakfast in advance - for a modest fee - but I never took advantage of that.) I felt completely safe here, and I will definitely return for a future stay.

Adequate, but would not stay there again.Posted Apr 28, 2015
We stayed here because of its proximity to prospect park, where we were attending a wedding. Other than the park, there is not much within walking distance. The room needed a deep cleaning - lots of dirt under the bed and in the window sills, several of the wood flooring pieces were loose or missing. Michelle overcharged us for the 3rd person we had staying in our room ($40 instead of $35 a night), and tried to charge us extra for a late checkout even though the website states you can request a late checkout until 12:30 for no additional cost.
