What a great place. The hosts are friendly and interesting, the food is delish, the beds are comfortable, the price is affordable, the location is terrific -- within a very short walk to subway trains to anywhere in Manhatten or Brooklyn. We enjoyed our stay. This B & B is a walk-up above a bagel store in the heart of... More

For those who prefer meeting people and sharing stories during their stay, this is the place. Managed by a helpful, unique team of young artists and entrepreneurs,3B is a fantastic place and representative of the local organic farming trend that is sweeping the country. The breakfast is beyond description: fresh fruit salads, omelettes that are crepe-like in their lightness, coffee... More

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay in this clean and comfortable B and B. Breakfasts were satisfying abd the fresh granola and organic fruits and veggies were plentiful. Rotating staff of young people were warm and helpful.

We finally got around to write a review of our stay at 3B. Me and my girlfriend stayed there for a week in April and were absolutely pleased. The connection you get with the owners and the rest of the guests is unique. As well as the all vegetarian breakfast that is made with love each morning. The thing that... More

I have stayed at 3B twice so far--once with a friend and once with my stepdaughter--and both visits were lovely. This is the perfect place for homesick former New Yorkers like me--it feels like being home again. The decor is homey and fun, and it's a little like staying in someone's cool, spacious apartment. Plus there's the delicious breakfast. I... More

We spent only one night at 3B in the summer of 2014 - but we are dying to get back. The team of artists running the B&B are so warm and thoughtful. The rooms are perfect. The location blocks away from fantastic restaurants in Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens adn Boerum Hill. If the weather's nice, you can walk all the... More

Because the 3B is full of new visions, pleasant personalities, great breakfast and happiness:) AND NO TV...TO THAT I SAY, WHOOOPIE! I consider myself very lucky to have stayed at the 3B and the experience. We had a party of 12... More

There's so much to love about 3B - the great concept behind it, the lovely people who operate it, the scrumptious breakfasts, the comfortable bed, the other guests you meet there and the brilliant location just one block from the Jay Street-Metrotech subway. The 3 flights of stairs and the urban street noise at night may not be for everyone.... More

Lovely decor, comfortable beds, friendly hosts, awesome breakfast. I will certainly come back. I walked down to the river, took the subway to the city--it's very convenient. Great common area in the living room, nice light everywhere, and lots of attention to detail.

This was my second time in 3B. I stayed first on spring in 2013 with my family and now I was traveling with a friend. I will be definitely coming back again next year. The place is at the 3rd floor of a 3 flrs. building and it has 4 rooms. One has 2 Queen beds and it is perfect... More
