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

If you don't like people...like to watch TV...don't enjoy adventure...or just overall grumpy... DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT STAYING HERE! 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

The extremely friendly arts driven staff hosted us for a phenomenal weekend this past Memorial Day. The location was lovely for our evening out to the McKittrick Hotel with a fantastic relaxing homestyle ready made brunch outside your bedroom door in the morning. We enjoyed the hearing and sharing adventures with other fellow guests over tea in the comfortable living... More

My 4 night stay at the 3B made this trip to New York stand out from all the others. I've always stayed in the theater district of Manhattan. This time I felt like I was visiting friends rather than being a "typical tourist". What a wonderful experience to find a place that was clean, safe, affordable, and filled with interesting... More

I only got to stay one night, but will definitely be back. Everything about it is charming and everyone went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Best shower ever after a 25 hr trip, comfy bed, great breakfast. Thank you so much!
