About this listing
Our Bed and Breakfast overlooks a beautiful urban park. One mile to Downtown. Close to the Great American Ballpark. Near Eden Park and the Cincinnati Art Museum. Two miles to the University of Cincinnati. Lovely two room suite with adjoining bath
Ethel's home was easy to find and was a convenient place to stay for our short stay. They were very friendly and welcoming! The house is still under renovations, but the rooms we stayed in were not being worked on.
Hopkins park bed and breakfast was absolutely lovely. My friend and I were only stopping in cincinnati briefly, but Ethel and Barry couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating. They gave us all the information we needed about the city, such as how to get to Great American Ballpark.
The host was welcoming. The pictures of the home are not represented in the pictures in the posting. The pictures of the red brick structures are actually of the park and adjacent housing. This home is a small grey house. The interior of the home is in the process of remodeling. It appears that it will look good after remodeling. We decided not to stay after viewing for a few reasons - The home is going through significant remodeling, neighborhood is transitional, we had an event downtown Cincinnati at 7:30 AM and host shared hot breakfast would be at 9 AM– We did not want cold breakfast. it was more convenient and better for us to change plans and stay downtown. Their dog Luna is super cute. If you don't mind staying during construction/remodeling and you're okay with the neighborhood, I think it would be a fine place to stay. Much more affordable than staying downtown.
The location was convenient to Univ of Cinc where we have a son attending. There is also a bus stop nearby. Host was welcoming and Barry offered a nice healthy breakfast and ate along with us. I would definitely return IF the bathroom and the two rooms we had were clean.
The reservation was canceled 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
My wife and I visited for one night, but we felt very welcome and at home. Other reviews have mentioned that the house was in a not-so-great part of town, but from our experience, Cincinnati's bark ("rough-looking" neighborhoods) is much worse than its bite (actual crime). We parked our car on the street, and felt completely safe in doing so. Other reviews also mentioned that the house is undergoing some renovations. That is true, but it doesn't affect the parts of the house having to do with your stay, and is in no way an inconvenience.
All in all, this is an amazing deal. The owners are friendly, the breakfast was delicious, the room was spacious and clean, and with only 2 bedrooms, things never felt crowded. If we're even in Cincinnati again, we'll be looking them up.
Ethel was a joy for our staff to work with. Accommodating, kind, polite, the works! We would absolutely return and stay here in the future!
