To be honest I fell in love with this place before I even got there, from reading the 3B website, and it did not disappoint! We were due to arrive in New York at 7:30am after taking the over night bus from Toronto. We contacted 3B beforehand and arranged to drop our bags off so we could go explore until... More

I stayed at 3B over a weekend in early March 2014. In short, it was great. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Physically, everything was fine. I got a large room, which was clean and attractive, as were all the premises, including the one and a half baths. Breakfasts were irresistibly good, and I speak as somebody who usually skips... More

This B&B was our last accommodation on our trip, and we really left the best till last. As soon as you walk into the apartment it actually feels like it's yours and you actually live in Brooklyn, it just has an amazing atmosphere. The room we stayed in was cosy, warm and inviting. The staff who sadly we didn't get... More

We stayed at the 3B for two nights in December and found it fabulous! We were in NYC to visit our daughter and her husband as well as to enjoy the Nutcracker and holiday sights. The location is perfect with easy, fast access to all the NYC and Brooklyn have to offer. Many others have correctly commented on the ease... More

I stayed at 3B for a few nights before flying to Africa for a year and I couldn't have had a better send off! The breakfast was fantastic, the people who work and live there are kind, compassionate and great to hangout with. My room was clean and comfy and I must say, I kinda' want to return there when...

Deciding to crash at 3B was probably the best decision of my trip. It's all you want from a Bed & Breakfast with the added bonus of feeling super homey, as if you're having a sleep over at a friend's place. That is, if your friend wakes up early in the morning to make you breakfast every morning. Actually, its... More

The pictures and reviews online hit the mark with 3B. The place is just as what everyone described it to be. I was impressed not only by the feeling of "home away from home", but even the hosts, who were extremely welcoming and took time to know/spend time with their guests. Among my favourite part of the stay was that... More

I stayed at 3B for 8 nights and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The bunk room is spacious, bright and clean and the beds were very comfortable. The home-cooked breakfasts were delicious and there was always great conversation with the staff and guests over the breakfast table. The location is excellent. It was my first time in New York but I... More

I've been all over America and had thousands of different sleeping accommodations, but this is the only Bed & Breakfast that I have ever slept in twice and most likely it's the only one I'll ever stay in a third time. Usually, I love trying new things and checking out new places so I tend not to stay in the... More

I travel to NYC frequently and have stayed in many places in Manhattan and Brooklyn. 3B was warm, inviting, clean, hassle free, and fit my budget. It will be one of my go-to's in my monthly travels to the city (I'm going back next month, in fact). The subway is extremely close with direct lines to most places in Manhattan,... More
