We stopped here for five nights over Easter 2012 having come from Engand and really enjoyed our stay. David and Masha really welcomed us to there home and made us feel as if we lived there. Great breakfasts and we met some really nice poeple at the breakfast table.
Brooklyn is full of character and people who are always willing to help you out when stood on a street corner looking at a map when you are lost. You won't stand there for long before one of the locals ask if you need help. The house is a typical large brown stone propertyand the Arches room we stopped in was great and very relaxing. You could even get live Engish Premier League football on the large TV in your room. Getting about is no problem with the subway a short walk away and 29 dollars for a 7 day pass allows you to ride the subway and loacal buses as many times as you want. One of the free subway APPS on your phone makes travelling to and from the B and B really easy. Will we stay here again ? Definitely yes and so should you.
