Actually I should not tell anyone about this beautiful place for fear that in the future it will become impossible to get a room here. My girlfriend and I visiting from Germany were so happy to have found this place. Monique and Glen are wonderful hosts and we felt really at home from the moment we arrived. Glen let us... More

Definitely would recommend to stay here. Lots of character make this B&B special. Rooms are clean spacious. Rooms are all different so it was hard to choose which to stay in. The owners are super friendly people and in my excitement seeing this place in person made them probably think im some kind of weirdo. Lol. Breakfast was served in... More

My husband and I spent a delightful 3 nights at Awkaaba Mansion in Brooklyn recently, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were visiting our daughter, son-in-law, and grandson who live just 4 blocks away from the Mansion; our daughter recommended it because, as an artist, she was impressed by the attractive decor and the interesting story of the Mansion's...

What a treat! Visited NYC for the first time with my sisters to celebrate a 40th birthday. I wanted us to stay in a place with character in one of the boroughs rather than in the city center, and Akwaaba was the perfect choice. It was situated in a walkable neighborhood in Bed-Stuy, within walking distance of the subway which... More

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Akwaaba B & B in Brooklyn this weekend. I was in town for a wedding which also took place at the B & B. This place was amazing!! The owner, Monique, was beyond accommodating and delightful as well as an excellent chef! This was a perfect venue for an intimate wedding... More

We chose Akwaaba because we wanted to stay in a setting we wouldn't mind getting stuck in if winter struck hard. And we made the perfect choice. While the weather was great for January, and we easily accessed Manhattan and Brooklyn attractions, if we got snowed in, Akwaaba and the immediate neighborhood would have also been perfect. Excellent breakfast (not... More

My wife and I were referred by a friend about the Akwaaba mansion in Brooklyn and we decided to give it a try in celebrating our marriage. I must say the service was very good, friendly, and warm. The food served at breakfast was simply great! We also liked the fact that we could come and go as we pleased... More

This inn is a special place. The grace and beauty of the house, its scale, its location on a beautiful street with brownstones galore, the lovely decor, the comfortable bed and lush towels, and the incredible and warm service make it a place that I plan to go to again and again. Melissa's breakfasts were fantastic. The glass sun porch,... More
