Thumbs up
Nice, small guesthouse in Brooklyn. Not close to anything but the complementary car service definitely helps to get around. Rooms were really nice, huge, clean and comfy. Service was great.

Fabulous Experience
Fantastic stay at the Franklin. We were travelling with a young baby and the Franklin was the perfect place for us in terms of both the fabulous accommodation and location. We used the ferry just a stones throw from the apartment to get into town which was incredibly easy with a buggy. The apartment itself was lovely and large with all the amenities we needed. We'd requested a crib and a quiet room on booking because of our baby - both requests fulfilled! The team on reception were super friendly and helpful with any queries we had. We also ate out in some lovely local restaurants and had some delicious bread and pastries from Bakeri just around the corner. All in all a fabulous stay!

Cozy Room
We enjoyed our stay and our room was cozy and lovely. However we did struggle with heating up the suite considering there was only one unit for all the space and I had to call at about 2am to ask why there wasn’t hot water. It eventually came back on but it was definitely uncomfortable and I felt that the staff were making excuses as opposed to offering solutions. When I checked out and they asked about our stay I told them and they said it was an inverted Hot and Cool sign issue. I think I should have been notified in advance or knowing they have this issue - they should’ve attempted to have it fixed.

It’s a great hotel with spacious rooms and the staff was so helpful and nice. We will come back again and stay here. Easy access to subway, ferry and buses to get to Manhattan and any where else.

Very good 8.0
Our stay at the Franklin Guesthouse was good but cannot say it was great. The room we stayed in-212- was clean and had plenty of space. A microwave in the room was lacking and not available for use at the hotel. The noise level from the hallway and street woke us several times. After 2 nights, we asked for a room change if available. We never heard back from the desk person if it was possible. In addition, it rained our first night and water had gotten on the floor. We alerted staff and was not told if it was investigated. No more issues afterwards as it did not rain any more. The car service was used and the drivers were very friendly. Staff at the checkin desk were helpful and friendly. Able to walk to the subway. Enjoyed Sweetleaf Coffee a short walk from the hotel.
