We had two rooms for our family of five. The shared bathroom was clean and always available, and the kitchen was a great bonus. We had breakfasts and sat in the quiet, tree lined back garden every morning. Thanks for a great resting spot.

I spent 12 days at Menno House and enjoyed every single bit it has to offer, from location, to atmosphere, the garden, the kitchen, the permanent residents and the manager. The house is no frills -full of character building unlike most impersonal hotels in NYC. I stayed in two different rooms, both with pleasant views over the garden and very quiet. It was a pleasure to be woken up by the morning orchestra of the birds. The rooms were spacious, clean, with a comfortable queen size bed, a desk, a wardrobe and a bookshelf. I had breakfast in the kitchen or the garden but did not dine in. There is a bathroom downstairs for the three guest rooms that is clean and never a problem in using it. The permanent residents are young welcoming people, either studying or working for non-profit organizations. I enjoyed meeting and chatting with some of them, others were busy in and out the house but always smiling. Michelle, the manager, is a personable and competent young lady that runs Menno House smoothly and efficiently. I will try to stay there again if and when I go back to NYC.

It's so nice to stay in a place with shared social justice values instead of an impersonal hotel. The location was great for exploring Manhattan, and the room met my needs. Great value for the price. Michelle was really friendly and helpful, and it was nice to have the option of being able to cook even though I didn't take it up.

We (my wife and I) had a wonderful stay at Menno House, we appreciated the warm welcome by Michelle (the manager) and the nice room: it was perfect! (good location, beautiful, cosy, tidy, clean, silent…) There is an “orange book” in the room which is very well done and we appreciated a lot David’s Bagel where we took all our breakfasts: delicious bagels! (2min walk from MennoHouse) We even took some sandwiches for our lunch one day: delicious as well (thanks for the tip!) We look forward to coming again w/ our 2 kids in some years! We warmly recommend this address. We can only regret that we did not stay the first night as well, it would have been a lot more convenient and nicer than staying in a bad and expensive hotel at the JFK airport (Days Inn Jamaica JFK Airport).

It's like a B&B (but you make your own breakfast with your own products. NB: there is the guest fridge). So you get here if you adapt yourself (it's not a hotel!). Nice bedroom (better than the picture), small as all the bedrooms in 4* hotels in NYC. Comfortable bed, clean, 2 minutes to grocery store and to the famous ESS-a-BAGEL. If the weather is good, you can also have your breakfast in the "garden" accessible from the kitchen (I did it one day, it's a luxe in NYC...). Michelle (the manager) is a private person, but available and very kind. I've been to NYC several times, always in hotels. The next time I'll definitely come back at the Menno-House because, when you stay there, you get a kind of humanity and the city appears much better
