Bubba and Bean (BB) Lodges
Ranked #7 of 79 New York City B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 January 2012

My sister and I stayed here on our 6 day trip to NYC in February 2008. Jonathan and Clement were friendly and helpful from the start, and the welcome pack was much appreciated. The location is fantastic and really does feel like living as a local. Our room was spacious and clean with good kitchen facilities. Unfortunately B&B was booked up when we returned to NYC but we have recommended it to everyone we know who visits the city.

This was our first visit to New York and we had been in touch with Jonathon and Clement prior to arriving. They were extremely helpful, but also not imposing. They left us alone but were available if needed.Location is great, feels like it would if you lived there, close to subway, shops and restaurants. Will definately return.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back of the building which was extremely quiet

My mom and I stayed for 8 days at Bubba and Bean lodges and we loved it! The room was spacious with two twin beds, wonderful kitchenette, flat screen tv with amazing cable channels, large bathroom and lots of storage space for all of our shopping! The location is excellent, a few meters from the metro stop and a very short walk to central park! It was so nice to be able to leave the busy crowds of times square take a quick metro ride and be welcomed back at Bubba and Bean late evening which was beautifully decorated with Christmas decorations on the outside. There are many supermarkets along Lexington avenue, very close to B&B so buying breakfast items and snacks to store in the room was very easy. There are many restaurants in the area and the pizza place next door made excellent pizza. This is definitely the place to stay at in NYC. The hosts are very friendly and helpful and definitely made our stay in NYC enjoyable. We will definitely come again, from South Africa

I stayed here last 2 and a half years ago and I've just got back from a second trip, I cannot fault this place, it is perfect. The rooms are clean, a good size, nice kitchen facilities and storage for all of the shopping bags! The room was really warm and very comfortable for relaxing after a long day walking around Manhattan. The guesthouse is in a really good location, less than a minutes walk to the subway, many places to eat and convenience shops for milk etc. I would suggest a bagel and coffee from the small place next door, the guys are really friendly and the coffee was the best we had during the whole of our stay! I cannot recommend this place enough, I miss NYC!

We recently had the great pleasure to stay at Jonathan's & Clement's lovely guest house, Bubba and Bean in Manhattan, They are wonderful hosts, very accommodating (we arrived quite early in the morning before opening time & were met by their lovely handyman who took our luggage to store until we came back later, at which point we found the bags in the spacious closet in our flat!), the flat is spacious, clean, comfortable, there is a great kitchen with all that you could need (including snacks), bathroom & shower are clean & nice. When we made a few helpful suggestions to improve the room they were done immediately - great service!! There is a delicious pizzeria on the corner, subway & bus stop right there. All that you could ask for! We look forward to staying there again!
