My husband and I spent two nights at the Sofia Inn in Brooklyn. Our daughter lives in Ditmas Park (about 3.5 miles away) and was graduating NYU Polytechnic at the Barclays Center (less than a mile away). The Inn is conveniently located withing easy walking distance to Prospect Park, the Barclays Center (where the Nets play), plenty of great restaurants (we recommend Tom's restaurant just 3 blocks away) and bars,the subway, the museum,the Botanical Gardens and countless other city attractions and had available street parking. We did have to move our car on Friday morning because they sweep the city streets at certain times on certain days and if you park there during that time, you will get a ticket or be towed. The innkeeper failed to mention this to us but our daughter reminded us and we read the signs, noted the times and complied.
The Inn was very tidy and comfortable and our room (West room, 2nd floor) was artfully furnished with nice antiques and a great queen bed (nice linens & mattress, plenty of pillows). Except for the typical steep stairs of a 3-story NY city brownstone (which are not well suited for the feeble or elderly) and the creaky noises from other guests throughout the house, it was perfect. We had a microwave, mini fridge, coffeemaker (tea and coffee supplied), TV, free wi-fi and a desk and we never met another guest in the shared bathroom. The innkeeper was very accommodating and always answered my questions and responded to my emails and phone calls promptly. He also recommended a very nice car service in lieu of taxis that picked us at The Inn within five minutes of our call and drove us into Manhattan during rush hour on Thursday for only $30. All in all, it was a great value for Brooklyn/Prospect Park and I would recommend it and would stay there again.
