Spectacular house with very comfortable rooms and wonderful staff. A very homey feeling too which is nice if you travel alone. Breakfast was excellent, homemade and huge. Plenty of nice restaurants around.

My husband and I live in NYC and we've stayed here three times. Each time it's been nothing short of magical. The rooms are immaculate, beautifully decorated, and cozy, the breakfast is wonderful, and we met guests from all over the world. Walking around the garden in the back and strolling down the street for coffee is so relaxing you...

My husband and I had an intimate 55 person wedding ceremony and dinner at Akwaaba Mansion last year. I cannot say enough about Monique and the entire team who made our wedding night simply magical. We literally pinched ourselves the next morning! Though we booked the Inn early in our engagement, we waited until sort of last minute to put...

I stayed here on my wedding night in the Jumping the Broom Suite and it was nothing short of amazing. The room was dimly lit and romantic and immaculately clean. We arrived late but the property itself is beautiful and has the old school Brooklyn Charm. We were served a delicious breakfast in bed the next morning of delicious pancakes,...

I've never stayed at a B&B quite like Akwaaba. The word 'akwaaba' means 'welcome,' and that spirit could not have been better embodied. The mansion itself has all sorts of feels. It retains much of the original 1860s fixtures. The common rooms have a grandeur, yet they manage to retain a warmth. Sherry was the perfect host. She welcomed us...

My husband and I live in Bed Stuy and when we were scouting out locations for our wedding knew we would want to keep it local. Akwaaba was everything we wanted and more. Our wedding was truly magical and the staff was incredible and gracious. We stayed at the B&B as did my Aunt and Uncle and the rooms were...

My husband recently celebrated a milestone birthday and I wanted it to be special. We had the most wonderful weekend at the historic Akwaaba Mansion in Brooklyn. The place is WOW Beautiful. The Mansion is elegantly decorated and walking into each room leaves you with the feeling like you stepped into history or another century. High ceilings; beautiful porch; lots...

I have stayed in 3 of the lovely rooms in this elegant Brooklyn mansion; each one is so comfortable and spacious. I love the jacuzzi bath tubs, very relaxing. The whole atmosphere is peaceful and friendly. The breakfast is a real treat with individualized service.

We enjoyed our two day stay. Historic home with huge ceilings and historically attractive decor. Great breakfast and very hospitable. Will return on next visit- and great value! Innkeeper was helpful and accommodating. Appointments were breathtaking and very interesting.

Akwaaba mansion is a delight in many ways. We enjoyed spending some of our leisure time on their porch, just watching the world go by. The interior is visually striking, with ornate hardwood floors, chandeliers, and woodwork that exhibit 19th century craftsmanship. The innkeeper was friendly and helpful, giving us good recommendations on restaurants nearby, directions, etc. Also, the breakfast...
