“Charming, well-appointed studio in nice Brooklyn neighborhood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I found the Alma Guesthouse through airbnb and was prepared to find a lived-in apartment, given the very modest price - but instead found a stylish, super clean, well-appointed mini studio. Check in was easy, the studio was clean and equipped with small kitchen, convenient shared-bath, and helpful info on the neighborhood. The NY subway is a 10 minute walk through a safe neighborhood with good restaurants, bars and a great coffee shop (within a block!). I would highly recommend it for solo visits or couples; probably not for kids, given that this is a shared space and quiet respect for other guests is the norm.

This space exceeded my expectations. It was spacious, light filled, clean and comfortable. We were in town for our son's wedding and needed a place for his last night with us before being married. The service was great, very friendly people. I would stay again without hesitation, and probably will as soon as I am planning another trip.

Room Tip: Rooms on first floor had window in the front and back, great spring breeze, quiet street as NY goes.

We really loved everything about this place. The appartment is styled really pretty and cosy. The room is clean and organised. Next to fact that you are just a few minutes away from the subway the neighbourhood is great. All kinds of great restaurants, bars, coffeehouses and boutiques in walking distance. We loved to go to the fleamarket or take a walk to Prospect Park. Heather and Fernando are a lovely couple and great hosts. We really felt at home. When we visit NY again we will definitely stay here again.

This is a wonderful mini hotel! The owners are helpful and accommodating. The rooms are clean, comfortable and have kitchenettes. It's well located in Clinton Hill. I was very comfortable and highly recommend this great find!

room is in a great neighbourhood - excellent creme brulee just about over the back fence. close to subway, a few blocks walk, which is great cos you get to cruise the neighbourhood. excellent japanese up the road (mmm, edamame). hosts are respectful and helpful. everything you need is there, including fully equipped kitchen (although why anyone would cook in NYC is beyond me). fresh juice place on the way to the subway. laundry up the road. buses too. also, guest room is the best room in the house - bright, breezy curtains, overlooking the street. all round excellent affordable choice if you want to be near Manhattan and in the heart of Brooklyn.

Room Tip: converse with your hosts directly

We stay for 1 week at the Alma Victoria. It was an awesome week with many beautiful moments.
The appartment was few minutes from subway and easy attainable. The flat was clean and comfortable. We have all we need to cook a small Dinner or make breakfast. In the near there a lot of shops and markets. The family were very nice and we got all information timely for the travel.
At my next time in NY I will come back to this friendly family.
