George Gittens was an excellent host and he bought us breakfast. He is a health expert and vegan chef. The building is a Brooklyn Brownstone built in 1931. It has many original details and characteristics still intact. The beds were extremely comfortable and the rooms are spacious. The property is in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn which is a very safe and sought after neighborhood. There are many restaurants and tourist attractions nearby. George Gittens is a historian of the neighborhood and has lived there all of his life. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Brooklyn.

George Gittens, a vegan chef and holistic health consultant is an very accommodating host. Make sure to ask him for his GET WELL CD. He paid for my breakfast and he knows the area very well and was able to inform me about different venues in the area. The house was built in 1931 and still has its architectural features still intact. It's comfortable and clean. The neighborhood is very safe with great restaurants and multiple tourist attractions. It is near trains which gives you easy access to Manhattan.
