We stayed 13 nights at the Griffin in June/July 2016. As a family of 5, including 3 teenage daughters 14,17 & 19, we found the apartment spacious, very clean and comfortable. The Griffin is located in a leafy street and is very close to the train station. A local train takes about 30 mins to get to Times Square. There... More

We have stayed at The Griffin several times and it is a great choice if you want a more local rather than tourist experience. We much prefer the freedom and privacy of our own apartment and as the cost of hotels has skyrocketed in recent years it is a much more enjoyable and affordable stay. The Griffin is very close...

We spent two nights at the Griffin Bed and Breakfast in October. We found it to be clean, roomy, and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked with a nice variety of fresh breakfast items to choose from. It is in a basement, but this was not a drawback except for lack of view. Probably stays cool in summer, but... More

We had a lovely stay at this place. We loved the privacy, and the closeness to everything especially our daughter's apt. Thanks for the breakfast and the great shower. It was very cool in the apt and we didn't even use the A/C even though it had been a hot day in Brooklyn. I guess it is because it is... More

We are a family of three from Melbourne and had two weeks stay at this lovely B&B. Brooklyn is a fascinating place with lovely homes, calm leafy streets and plenty of choices if you want to eat out away from the noise and tourist food of midtown Manhattan. Whist there is so much to see on a first trip to... More
