Firstly, Bubba & Bean not a typical serviced apartment or hotel. The rooms, carved into an old but refurbished townhouse in East Harlem are clean and serviced every other day with fresh towels and other goodies which made it very comfortable. There's no check in desk but the posted number near the door is always answered or returned quickly. Secondly,... More

We stayed at Bubba and Bean Lodges for 6 nights. From the moment we arrived we were made welcome by the owners. Our studio appartment was so clean and very comfortable. Our room was at the back of the building and was very peaceful. The welcome basket with coffee, biscuits, fruit, sweets etc was very thoughtful and much enjoyed by... More

Bubba and Bean BB is located in a small townhouse (6 rooms). We travelled with our kids and booked a room for four. The room was smaller than I expected. There was no place to sit after a busy day in the city. It would have been nice if there was a small couch so we didn't have to sit... More

My wife & I stayed in this apartment twice during our recent visit to the east Coast USA. Looks can be deceptive as from the outside it doesn't look much, however on entering the 1st floor apartment there was heaps of room for extra luggage. Jonathon & Clement were both helpful & leave a list of places to see, restaurants... More

We booked B&B Lodges following a friend's recommendation as we were looking for a non-hotel place with a personal service. I feel really torn about this place. We were welcomed by Jonathan who was reachable and helpful throughout our stay (3 nights) and throughout the booking process. They make a big effort (and succeed) to make the lodge look good... More

Not only was it outstanding value considering the location which was very accessible everywhere by train and taxi but it was well appointed, quiet, had a wonderful small kitchenette ( well... More

First of all, BB Lodges gets a 5* rating from me because it far exceeded all expectations I had prior to my arrival. I stayed in #4, @1598 Lex. I was looking for someplace affordable with a neighborhood feel to it and knowing Manhattan fairly well, fully expected to find a cramped, older looking room with a bathroom/shower. I was... More

Found the location very quiet for NYC, and the best thing was it was very clean and handy to have two bathrooms and bedrooms, as we were two couples sharing the one apartment. Stayed for one week and place was kept very clean during our whole stay. Easy to catch Bus or Train from this location. Would stay again if... More
