This was my first trip to New York in mid-September. I wanted somewhere comfortable, clean, good location, basic catering facilities, own bathroom, and to feel safe. It's not often you get everything but Bubba and Bean Lodges delivers on all counts.
Jonathan and Clement have something special here. The processing of payment and their communications before our arrival were very helpful. It's well serviced with a couple of grocery markets. The closest subway is just a minute or two away and we felt safe walking between them at close to midnight. The best part was that it's just a couple of streets from Central Park. We were there in about 10 minutes.
The room was more than adequate. Clean everywhere. The kitchen had everything you could need expertly organised in the smallest space (it is a studio room after all - another fun experience). The welcome basket of tea, coffee, milk and sugar (plus snacks) ensured we could relax as soon as we arrived. The AC was a god-send as we had nice warm weather. TV was a bonus for a few minutes but you don't necessarily go to NYC to watch TV. The Wi-Fi allowed us to plan and pre-book any activities we wanted to do.
I could go on and on but in the end i would recommend this place to anybody and everybody. There really wasn't any downside. I found all the positive reviews and photos accurate. New York City is not cheap and that goes for accommodation. Bubba and Beanis excellent value for money to stay on Manhatten.
Top floor is 2 flights of stairs. It is nice but may be a lot of stairs for very young or older peo...
