This is close to the 103rd st subway station and meant we could get to anywhere we wanted to go. Being in a residential area we had lots of dining options and easy access to laundry service. Jonathan and Clement were great hosts who were there to answer all our questions. Our room was exactly like the photos and bigger...

We recently spent 4 nights at B&B Lodges. We booked the two bedroom/bathroom with kitchenette. We were 2 couples traveling together and this option gave us enough room for getting ready each day. We liked having the kitchenette. It was well appointed with cooking supplies and utensils. A quick trip down to the grocery store one block down and we...

Just returned from a great week in New York . Great to be just a small way out of the main downtown area and only a ten minute walk from the quieter parts of Central Park . Very close to subway gives easy access to all areas of New York . Current exchange rates make NewYork very expensive for U.K....

This is the place to stay! Not a hotel. It's home away from home. Subway is literally one short block away. Grocery stores, restaurants, laundry/dry cleaners, everything at a stones throw away. The room we stayed in is the only room with a door that goes outside to an adorable fenced rooftop, with a small table & chairs. It's also...

I almost gave up the idea of taking my 3 teenage sons to NY because of the hotel prices, but B&B changed my mind. This is a charming guest house. Prior e-mail communication with owners was excellent. The ground floor flat was perfect - 2 lovely bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, the all-important fridge and air-conditioning and the WiFi was outstanding -...

We stayed here for a full week on our first trip to NYC. We were quite nervous coming from the UK not knowing what to expect, which wasn't helped by driving through Harlem on the way to the apartment. However I had done my research and knew NYC is very safe nowadays so wasn't worried. The apartment block is in...

We've stayed at Bubba and Bean twice, once as a couple and once as a family. The hosts are wonderful, the accommodations are comfortable and the location is very handy being close to a subway stop. We will go back,
