We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bubba and Bean. The room was huge, the kitchen very handy and it felt like home. We even had a wonderful courtyard full of flowers where we would sit for breakfast and plan our day. One night we (two women travellers) felt a little uncertain walking home late one night, and Jonathan walked five... More

The studio is located in the Upper Manhattan Area (Spanish Harlem), 5 mins walk to Subway Line 6 and a ride to downtown Manhattan would take 20 mins. If you don't mind walking and are comfortable about catching the metro trains, you can go one stop then switch to the no 4 Green Line and this is an express line... More

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

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
