We stayed here as a group of 7 friends, sharing 2 rooms in total. (4 bed and 3 bed). Room size was more than adequate for 4 people, lots of space. Same size room for the 3 bed too. Each had private bathroom. Kettle etc is also provided. Property was clean and tidy. The owners and housekeeper were very nice.... More

We had heard great things about Bubba and Bean, so started with high expectations. They were exceeded. Our room was perfect. Immaculately clean, quiet, with so many little extras: paper towels, tissues, hairdryer, coffee maker and everything you needed to cook if you needed to. We stayed a whole week. The hosts were friendly and informative, but not intrusive. The... More

The two of us spent one week at the lodge. This could not have been be better. The room was clean, the kitchen all equiped and we even had a balcony. We slept extremely well as the room was situated at the back. N.6 subway on 96th or 103rd is very convenient and the supermarket on 96th is a good... More

I wanted to introduce my girls - aged 11 and 8 - to New York but didn't want to stay in a bland hotel. The apartment is only a few minutes ride by subway from the centre of Manhattan. I was over whelmed by how spacious our rooms where. Everything was beautifully clean and there was even a welcome basket... More

We were a group of 4 women on our first trip to NYC. Bubba and Bean Lodges is in a great location and I loved the neighbourhood feel. We felt very safe, there were several lovely restaurants close by, and it was so easy to get to the subway, etc. We appreciated the cleanliness, the little kitchen area, the quiet,... More

We echo what others have said about the great location, lovely room and great value. We also appreciated the helpful written materials Jonathan and Clement provided before we arrived, and in the room. When we left they were kind enough to arrange for a car to the airport. We loved being in a neighborhood - there is a good grocery... More

We were a group of 4 ladies visiting NYC for the first time. We found this place perfect for us. The subway was nearby and the bus in front of Bubba and Bean's. We had two rooms with two bathrooms and two sets of twin beds - couldn't have been better! There was a TV in each room, blower driers... More

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
