There are not a huge amount of options within Astoria and the reviews on this were a bit mixed when we booked. However, my mom wanted an older house to get the authentic feel of Astoria. The reviews weren’t lying about the woman that runs this place. She’s certainly older and she has a very sarcastic sense of humour. She said one or two things that could easily be taken as offensive, but honestly we didn’t see her again after check-in. Well, we only stayed one night as well. The room was like a doll house, creeky beds and very old floors and walls. But it definitely felt like we were staying in the 1900s and that’s what we wanted. The doorknob to the bathroom fell off in about two minutes so we mock-fixed it and carried on. There was free wifi in the house which was very useful. The breakfast was served by a young college guy who was working there in the summer. Coffee or tea, fruit and bagels and lox. It was extremely tasty and we sat with another couple and gabbed away. This place was cute but not very welcoming or warm. I’m not entirely sure if I’d stay here again but it wasn’t bad.
