STAY AWAY!!! We had 2 nights booked for a weekend to visit family. Our walk from the subway to the guest house had us closely guarding our valuables in this questionable neighborhood. As soon as we stepped in the hallway, we were hit with the smell of a cross between moth balls and comet cleanser. We decided to book a... More

My husband and I stayed in two different rooms at the ML and loved both! The rooms were clean and tidy with thoughtful decor and everything you could need. Since each room had a kitchen area we were able to store and prepare food as necessary. The living spaces were comfy and the beds were comfortable as well. Not having... More

My husband and I stayed at The Missing Lantern in Suite #4 last week. We were there for 8 days. It was exactly what we had expected. I had called the office 1 week prior just as requested on the reservation. They had told us that no one would be there upon our arrival since it was after hours so... More

BE FOREWARNED -- you are renting a room that is a room without any services whatsoever. No reception, no phone, no alarm clock... no maps... Nothing.. The first thing that put me off was there were 5 Schlage keypad locks to get into the room -- that should tell you something ab out the neighborhood (Bedford Stuyvessant, not the gentrified... More

So....when you book with this place, what you don't know is that the address listed is not the address you may be staying. Not until we received our confirmation did we get the address where we were actually staying, which was quite a ways from 1156 Dean Street (the address on the web site). I am very comfortable in Brooklyn... More

My husband and I pulled up and were a bit leary of the neighborhood, we were just getting bags out of the car when we were approached by a creepy looking man. We decided for our safety it was wise to NOT stay here! We had to go into Manhattan at 5pm on a Friday night and pay top dollar... More

Great location and fabulous price for a New York hotel! Customer service was impeccable. Clean, unique, cute hotel. The only draw back was we wanted to sleep four people and although the bed was big the pull out couch was really only for one person!

I used to stay at the hotels in Manhattan when I visited NYC. Because of Hurricane Sandy, this time I chose the hotel in Brooklyn instead. This actually was my first time staying in the Missing Lantern. I was very pleased with my stay. This place is much spacious and economical compared to the hotels in Manhattan. I feel very... More

I choose the Missing Lantern because of it's uniqueness and it's location. I had an event at Barclay's Arena in Brooklyn. The location is close to the subway at Nostrand and Fulton which comes out right near Atlantic (Barclays Arena). The subway station at Nostrand and Fulton (Which also goes into Manhattan) is a colorful 6 block walk. Nostrand avenue... More
