The house is truly a gem, It has been fully renovated, but I tried to keep all the beautiful details intact, you will experience romance of the old days with comforts of modern amenities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I had a very pleasant stay in Celeste Guest House this May. It is indeed a charming place with nice and friendly hosts. The place and its neighborhood is quiet and clean, and with short walking distances to good restaurants, shops and subway station. A personal written information flyer in the apartment gave much useful information.

We will want to come back to this place, and I will recommend it to my friends and other who want to go to NY.

Charming old place with a great location, near restaurants on 5th Ave, Whole Foods on 3rd Ave and nearby metro stop. Arrangement for the two bedroom "suite" is funky, but it works. Shahla was extremely gracious and helpful both in deciding on the place as well as once we arrived.  That hospitality made the trip.

Pleasant stay in Brooklyn

  • 4 of 5

We were a party of four adults and one baby, and we stayed in the one-bedroom "aqua" apartment on the third floor, and rented the additional bedroom (which is on the second floor). It was plenty of space for our group, and the apartment was clean and comfortably furnished. Shahla even had a high chair for the baby to use, which came in very handy! The neighborhood itself is pretty industrial but still safe and comfortable. When you're at the back of the apartment, you can hear some noise from the subway that runs two blocks behind the apartment. It was warm in New York while we were there, and the AC in the third floor bedroom was quite old and stopped working by the time we left. But we alerted Shahla and she mentioned getting a new one for her next guests. The bathroom was big and while it was a bit rough around the edges, it served us fine. The tub is huge! The kitchen was pretty sparse, but still ample for preparing simple meals. Just two suggestions: we could not open the windows in the kitchen, and it would be helpful to open those to get a good cross breeze in the apartment - it was a bit stuffy at times. The other suggestion is to have a lock on the door on the second floor landing to secure the suite from the rest of the building. Since we were sharing the bathroom, we had to leave the extra door to the bathroom unlocked, which was right at the top of the stairs to the third floor. Having a key to lock off the whole suite would make it feel a bit more secure. Overall it was a pleasant stay and Shahla was very kind and helpful!

Die Unterkunft entspricht den Fotos, gemütlich, geräumig, gut ausgestattet und sauber. Zur Subway sind es 5 Gehminuten und von dort 15-25 Min nach Manhattan. Gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (z.B. Supermarkt) und zahlreiche Restaurants sind in der Nähe. Brooklyn ist spannend und sehenswert. Sehr nette, hilfsbereite Vermieterin und sehr nette Nachbarn. Wir waren mit 2 Kindern (11 und 18 Jahren) dort und können diese Unterkunft wirklich weiterempfehlen
