We could not have enjoyed another place more than Bubba and Bean's. Lovely 3 story building connected to another similar building, 12 guest rooms available. We had a great "couples studio" with small kitchenette, just perfect for breakfast each morning. Includes all utensils and cooking availability. There is a private balcony and would be perfect for warmer months but it... More

It was an awesome surprise when we got to the b&b,we had seen the pictures but it was so much better in person! it's such a beautiful place and has everything you need, it's very close to the center of the city, only two blocks from central park, it was just perfect, we felt like home every day!

I was very pleased with the clean and pleasant accommodations. The hosts provide clear communications and instructions that made the stay smooth. I was staying alone with my friends in a nearby hotel. My friends were jealous of my room! It had everything I needed, and was close to the subway and great eateries. I am a city girl, so... More

It's a great neighbourhood for living like a local in New York. Close to subway, buses and a couple of blocks from Central Park. J&C make you feel right at home. We had a two bedroom apartment on the ground floor of 1596. It was neat, modern and well set out. Great for a family of four. The only drawback... More

My daughters and I spent 8 nights at Bubba and Bean and found it to be great value for money. We chose Bubba and Bean as we wanted to feel more like locals than tourists, and that is definitely how we felt. B&B is in a residential area with great local restaurants, food markets, laundry service and subway and bus... More

Busstop just in front of the house, subway only few blocks away.The neighborhood is very safe and has nice restaurants. The hosts, and the dogs are great, and there is Victor, who was... More

Just spent 5 nights at bubba and bean lodges and this is just the place for a better value accommodation away from the main New York hub with plenty of space and superb facilities. Contact with owners Jonathan and clement was excellent and we were greeted and shown to our room on the 2nd floor at the rear. Room was... More

We stayed for over two weeks and this was our sanctuary away from the busy streets of NYC. The room was clean, with a table and chairs for two, an armchair, and a kitchenette with full gas stove, microwave, sink, a drip coffee machine etc. The bathroom was modern and clean. Our room was at the back of the building... More

OK, so dragging our suitcases up the three flights of stairs wasn't the leisurely intro that we hoped for. Then we opened the door and the magic kicked in! The apartment was spotless, the welcome basket overflowing and the silence - after Las Vegas - appreciated. Having cleaners every couple of days guaranteed that our comfort was taken care of...

Discovered Bubba & Bean through the Lonely Planet guide which rated it a top pick for families. After much research we came to the conclusion that this was the best value and most comfortable option for a family of four. We stayed in a Superior Room with one king and two king single beds. This was far more comfortable than... More
