The comfortable bed, friendly staff, beautiful brownstone, location to the train station
Very clean and tidy, nothing like the horror stories you hear from many NY bookings. Building is old but cozy, Prospect Park subway station with very convenient Manhattan bound Q line is 10 mins walk away. Many small shops, eateries and two launderettes around the corner. Fully equipped shared kitchen with gas stove, pots & pans and shared fridge at second floor. This is the first time I booked somewhere with a shared bathroom but it was never a problem as I'd have to share it with one or two other rooms at most and it was always very clean. On some weekdays I even was the only guest on my floor. Would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone looking to stay somewhere cheap in Brooklyn.
Wifi signal is weak at the top floor. Was ok for browsing though and if one needs to download something fast they can sit in the spacious entrance lounge. No elevator (common in NY) might be an issue for people with mobility issues. There's no air conditioning, only a small fan, so I'd avoid visiting during NY's muggy summer.
Closeness to Manhattan (20 min on the Q train) Stores in the vicinity to get groceries + have quick breakfast The hostess is v. discreet and yet v. mindful The BnB is very well equipped and clean, with a lot of charm, like all the brownstones in the peaceful street Safe neighborhood ; amazing park down the block. Michelle, you are the BEST :)
That we had to leave at some point.
Wonderful friendly staff and great location.
Nice owner Nice room Kitchen to make breakfast in
Really liked the place near the Prospect Park, and Q Line. Very welcoming and good atmosphere. I am recommending this B & B.
Maybe they should be a bit more frequent with the cleaning/changing of sheets a s o.
Very clean, spacious bedroom. Shared bathroom but also very clean with a great walk in shower. Common area downstairs. Short walk to subway or to Kings Hospital.
Lack of parking, but hey, it's New York. We found ESP parking on Clarkson near the hospital, about a 5 block walk away.
The building had been renovated and redone not long ago, from the look of things, and this "historic" building shows well. The tall ceilings and hard wood throughout are warm and pleasant to experience. The friendly staff helped out as asked. The location is about as near perfect - a block from local coffeeshops and vegetable stands, etc. The subway across Brooklyn is about 3 blocks away. The newly refurbished bathroom is spacious and well done, and clean.I recommended to others and will return.
The room was a bit sparsely furnished, and this aspect may be part of a work in progress. The renovations are not quite done- the trim around the door in the bathroom was not yet installed. I stay at many B & B facilities on business travel, but this one is the only one without a phone number to call in case of need. We were on the 2nd floor- up one flight, and down one from the kitchen and thought we had a private bath, but not so- there was a timing issue at one point, but it was a small matter.
Terrific location, just blocks from Prospect Park and the Botanical Garden, and just two blocks to a subway stop that goes straight into manhattan. Michelle, the proprietor, was very nice and helpful and made our stay comfortable.
The Morgan Suite had a very comfortable bed. The kitchenette on the 3rd floor was convenient to keep some milk and things on hand for morning. The shared bathroom was no problem at all, and there was some shampoo, conditioner, and body wash as well as a hair dryer that all seemed to have been put there for guests. The towels were very clean and soft. The location was very convenient to the subway, a nice grocery store, a nice bakery/coffee shop, and a good, child-friendly taverna.
The owner was not there to greet us on check-in and there was no information in the room about how to access the free wi-fi, optional breakfast, or check-out procedure. The owner was also absent at check-out, so we just left the keys in the room. The owner had lost track of the credit card information I used to book the room and then claimed that the card had expired (it had not), so I got an email from her two days after our stay asking me to email her my credit card information. No thanks! She did accept a PayPal payment, so that seems to have worked out. (This confusion might have been due to booking the room on this site.) The sofa bed in the Morgan Suite was extremely uncomfortable as a bed. On our final night there, there was also someone walking up and down the halls and stairs from 1AM until 6AM, which kept us up. Can't blame the owner for that -- that's just the risk of staying in a BnB. There was a hole in the bathroom window, so it was cold, and there was a pretty large wad of hair near the shower drain. Finally, the BnB advertises that children are "welcome" with adult supervision, but the owner followed me and my children up the stairs to tell us that there was to be "no playing" in the house. I assured her that we would keep the kids in the room while we were in the house, but she insisted that they were not allowed to play in there either. Plenty of BnB's exclude kids and that's fine, but if kids are not allowed to play, then they are not "welcome." I would not recommend this place for anyone traveling with a child and I would not recommend the Morgan Suite if you actually have to use the sofa bed as a bed.
Quiet street in a somewhat busier neighborhood. 200 meters to Subway station (Prospect Park). Excellent wifi at least when I was visiting. Hostess Michelle was very friendly and helpful.
Shared bathroom, although this is not a dealbreaker considering that there's only two rooms per floor.
What a beautiful house, and the room was such a delight. It immediately felt like home, and I love Brooklyn with the diversity of food and activities. Brooklyn museum and botanic garden on walking distance, prospect park is a brilliant opportunity to jog a few miles. Thank you Michelle for staying at your b&b, I will come back certainly around august to see Brooklyn by summer.
Very friendly owner. Easy to get on the train as station is close.
After making my reservation for 3 nights a month ahead, I needed to change it to 2 nights. I called Lefferts about 12 hours after I had just made the booking to ask if I could change my reservation to 2 nights without a fee. They said that was fine, so I called booking.com to change the reservation. While I was on the phone with booking.com, booking.com called Lefferts to confirm that this change was allowed. They confirmed. I received a confirmation email with the changes. The day I arrived in nyc to check in, the woman at Lefferts greeted us by telling us our reservation was cancelled. She said there was a mix up and booking.com should have told us. Seriously? You didn't have the brains to tell me yourself that I wouldn't have a place to stay in nyc?? First of all, it was ridiculous that they cancelled it because they said over the phone that the change is fine and that my reservation was confirmed. The woman made up reasons like "there was a 3 night minimum" which there was not. Thankfully I was not charged for anything. I am astounded by how terrible their management is.
Michelle was extremely helpful and friendly. The room was huge and extremely comfortable...especially the massive bed. A very quiet street and very close to a subway station for a 25 minute ride into central Manhattan. No problem at all with the shared bathroom since there are just a couple of rooms sharing it.
It's a beautiful old property in well maintained original condition and that means a few minor irritations like squeaky floorboards if you get unlucky and have some other heavy footed guests. Not really an issue though.
The inn keeper Michelle and her daughter were amazing. The place was very clean. A metro station is less then a 5 minute walk from the inn. The train takes you directly into Manhatten. Lots of resturants in the area, quiet side street. We stayed there 1 week and were very happy to have stayed there. The kitchen has a fridge/stove/microwave/coffee maker and eggs/coffee etc are provide to make yourself a good breakfast.
Lovely old building. Clean rooms. Friendly and helpful owner. Good connection to Manhattan with the metro from prospect park (5min walk).
Staff very nice. Very clean. Great value in NYC.
Acessability to innkeepers. Little things would improve stay - coffee carafe, wastebaskets in rooms, a second chair in room, continental breakfast items.
