We stayed three nights at this B&B and enjoyed our time there. Zenobia is a lovely host who wants to make sure her guests feel at home. There are some nice touches like fresh bread and bagels and music quietly playing in the dining room and so on. Serenity is a very fitting name as the area is quiet. It's full of character and tastefully decorated. It's also conveniently located close to the Prospect Park subway station. Like many similar older buildings access is by stairs. If you have limited mobility or heavy bags ask about room options.
We booked this place years ago and stayed here for 5 days. The host Zenobia is one of the nicest people you will even meet. The rooms were big and spacious with a shared bathroom in the hall. The place is not too far from the Subway that takes you right into the city. Otbwas nice to escape the business of the city in the evenings and stay in Brooklyn
A Beautiful house, built in the late 19th century which has been lovingly maintained - It felt like a home on our trip away. Zenobia was so kind and helpful on our trip - we managed to lock ourselves out one night like a pair of muppets and Zenobia came to our rescue. The location is great for getting around and sight seeing- 5 minutes walk from the subway station prospect park. Really nice cafes around too, if you want to chill in Brooklyn and see the Botanical Gardens or Museum. I would highly recommend the Guest House to anyone who hopes to visit New York for some exploring!
Stayed here for a week and it was a lovely quiet space after all the hustle and bustle of New York. A good location for sight seeing as buses and tubes only a five minute walk. It's based in a vibrant area, Prospect park nice for a walk, good local cafes etc. Clean, tidy and I shared a bathroom which wasn't a problem. Zenobia the host is lovely and very helpful.
I spent three nights at Serenity Guest House and could not have been happier. I stayed in the En Suite and it was like the perfect apartment. A sun room with a futon, cafe table, and tv (I had coffee and got some work done in the mornings); a beautiful bath a claw foot tub, and a huge master bedroom with a super comfy king sized bed. The location was great - great coffeeshops, a gourmet grocery, vegetarian friendly restaurants, just a few blocks from the subway, and a short walk to Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, Brooklyn Museum, and library. The neighborhood was friendly and diverse. I really had everything that I needed and found it hard to venture out! And Zenobia was the best host. She made me feel like a member of the family visiting from out of town. She helped me learn the in's and out's of the neighborhood, I cannot wait to go back.…
