“Lovely Property, Great Hosts, Charming Neighborhood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2012

My Fiance and I had a wonderful stay at Dekoven Suites this winter. The house was large and spacious and had all the amenities we needed for a comfortable stay. The hosts were flexible and warm and definitely added to the overall experience. It was located in a beautiful neighborhood in Brooklyn which felt safe and quite while providing easy access to the train system into Manhattan. We'd definitely stay again!

Our stay at DeKoven Suites was amazing. It was so nice to find a bed and breakfast that was in a great location and perfectly suitable for my husband and I, and our three children. Our suite,with private entrance, had a children's room which was very large, yet cozy and amply appointed with games, stuffed animals, a large TV, a queen size bed and a single bed . Our separate bedroom room with a queen size bed was very lovely and quiet. Our hosts Susan and Chalo could not have been more helpful. Their restaurant recommendations were right on target and they gave us outstanding directions to anywhere in NYC. We have been telling all our friends and family about this amazing find and we can not wait to back ourselves!

One would never expect to find a place like this in the New York City area. It is so close to the city allowing one to experience everything NY has to offer but then you can truly go home! What a treat this beautiful, victorian experience gives you. The owners are amazing people and make you feel so welcome at any time. Breakfast is yummy, the rooms are appointed with so much personality and warmth,clean and cozy and if you need laundry done it is accessible. The other great thing is that you get a taste of Brooklyn which has its own charm if you don't want to only see the city. Susan and Chalo will give you great tips on where to eat, what to see and make sure your stay with them is the best you could have. I would recommend it to everyone, not only is the price fair but the total package is AWESOME....

Room Tip: If you have kids definitely the basement, laundry there. The upper rooms are all beautiful, you won...

My husband and I chose DeKoven Suites since we had heard about it from friends who also had children in Brooklyn (doesn't everyone?) It lived up to and exceeded our expectations. Our hosts were like "instant family" and took care of everything from calling car service, medical advice, including us in their holidays, and seemingly knowing every "short cut" to anywhere in Brooklyn or Manhatten. The accommodations are spacious and clean, the Continental breakfast even has home made bread in the morning. The train is very close and walkable. We cannot believe that we were formerly paying Manhatten Hotel prices when we could stay in a place like our own home for so much less. I have since brought my girlfriends back ( a great place for a girl's getaway) and stayed for one or two nights to experience Brooklyn. This place is a real treasure... Three cheers for our hosts who feel like family to us!

Room Tip: If you are a family I would go with the basement suite since it is large and there is more privacy...

My husband and I chose this place from other Trip Advisor write-ups and they were all correct. What a lovely safe place and neighborhood. The trees and landscaping of all the homes in this area do not look like any thing you would expect in NYC. It is close to the subway and hearing it in the middle of the night (we had our windows open) was some thing special for us. Susan and Chalo are the best -- made us feel right at home. They had maps, reservations for the 9/11 memorial, ideas for "out of way" attractions to get us going. Within an hour we were taking the very short walk for our first ever subway ride to the big city. You will LOVE IT here. We are definitely coming back. You feel like you are staying with good friends.

we are both from Europe (she is German, I'm French) and we were looking for a quite and relaxing place to stay after visiting the tremendous city of New York in the middle of the summer's heat.
we found this excellent place, with trees along the roads and a garden, close to a metro station, with very nice restaurants around (and it ís a French who is writing !!!) and a park where to go jogging.
but what made THE difference was the kindness and availability of Suzie and Chalo who made us feel so good here, giving us plenty of very good tips to discover the cities of New York and Brooklyn.

We stayed at DeKoven Suites for five nights. As a family of four, we appreciated the space and privacy the suite accorded. Susan and Chalo were lovely hosts, very caring and hospitable. They provided us with traveler trips known only to local New Yorkers. Loved the fresh fruit among other breakfast choices Susan provided each morning. The suite was clean, water pressure in the shower was great, access to the fridge, washer and dryer, and HBO were +++++!!! Commuting by subway to Manhattan even late in the evening was not a problem. Proximity to the Newkirk subway was a bonus. We had a terrific local Brooklyn experience and would do it again. DeKoven Suites is a lovely home, very tastefully furnished with a well landscaped deck. Susan and Chalo's personal touches made our stay all the more enjoyable.
