This is a really neat place to stay one step away from public transportation. The breakfast part is cereal, muffins and doughnuts only. Juice, milk, and keurig coffee. It honestly is really closer to a hostel as opposed to a bed and breakfast. I would stay here again.

I wouldn't stay in Room 14 in middle of winter again because it's just too hot. Staff turned off our radiator and I cracked the window, but being on fourth floor, the heat just tide up. There were bits of black sand in tap water. Hm. The breakfast is fine, but it's odd that there is zero place to sit....

Interesting to see the interior of a vintage brownstone. We stayed on the 1st floor and heard the floors and stairs creak anytime anyone came in the front door and could hear the conversations in the lobby. Had trouble finding enough outlets that worked to plug phones and camera batteries in at night. The bed was wonderful but the furnishings...
