Looking for affordable accommodation in NYC was a challenge (unless you are happy to settle for room the size of a cupboard and communal bathrooms). Luckily I discovered Bubba and Bean - thank you Lonely Planet! Not only does the room come with a bathroom but a kitchen and cupboard as well! Not only this but you are literally a... More

This is a nice and clean place with full kitchen and easy to make your own meals. The neighborhood consist of a mix of old people, families and school. Easy take aways nearby. B&B lack a place to hang around as it have no lobby etc so is not so suitable if you travel solo and just need to relax... More

This review is long overdue. Bubba and Bean turned out to be a great place to make our home base for a five day trip in NYC. It's a neighborhood, safe for returning from subway late at night, with plenty of storefronts nearby for breakfasts, lunches, incidentals. Shopping and finer restaurants are just a 5-10 minute walk, and we stayed... More

We had a great 3 nights stay at Bubba & Bean - it is in a safe neighborhood with several laundromats (big plus), eateries (including pastries, pizza, Dominican food etc) and shops. I would consider this to be a "heartland" of NYC - so was a welcoming change for us to get to see another side of NYC! Room is... More

We stayed at Bubba and Bean for 9 nights in total and would definitely choose to stay again if in New York. We changed rooms during our stay (we knew about it in advance) and both rooms were essentially self-contained apartments with no breakfast. The room in what seemed the newer part of the building was larger – in fact,... More

Really enjoyed Bubba and Bean. Hosts were nearby but not at all intrusive. You looked after yourself and had everything you needed to do so. Shops nearby, open late, made self-catering easy. We enjoyed the genuine Mexican food on offer. Catch a cab? Why bother. The subway nearby meant that you could get anywhere really quickly. Buses and cars take... More

This was our second stay at this B and B. We're loving it. Nice apartment with kitchenette, very clean. Great hosts. Good restaurants in the neighborhood and close to Central Park and Guggenheim Museum.

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

Great spot close to the Subway, great pizza next door, laundry next door cheap and efficient, great pharmacy and easy to catch a cab, really Central to come home to, felt like we lived in Nee York, great couple of...

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
