A Word From Our Hosts

“We have been bed and breakfast hosts for City Lights Bed And Breakfast for over three years and the experience has been amazing to us. We went into this little business not having any idea what to expect. City Lights B & B have been unfailingly helpful and professional and have given us excellent advice. The guests they find for us have been from all over the world and are interesting to get to know. Even those guests who are Americans enjoy talking about living in the heart of Manhattan and sharing their experiences. Even more amazing is that City Lights has kept us almost fully booked. They are expert at managing our calendar, and I assume other host’s calendars as well. We have, as result, a substantial income from three spare rooms. We always get lots of information about our guests before they arrive, so there are no surprises. We have email contact with the guests well in advance. All in all, this little business would not be possible without City Lights. We make a good team.”

"I have worked with City Lights for nearly 10 years now and have been unceasingly impressed with their service. They have been there when i have needed anything at all. My guests have been absolutely fabulous. There have even been some who have invited me to stay in their homes in Europe and other places. Over the years, City Lights staff have been a pleasure to work with."

"As a long term host, working with City Lights Bed and Breakfast, has been a great experience. They are very accessible and attentive and I have appreciated the guidance they have offered me. Through the years many of my guests have asked for my place over and over. With the help of City Lights staff, my venture has been a success. "
