Come stay in Historic New Center, just 3 blocks north of the Fisher Building. There are three adorable blocks of turn of the century homes, including one street with a pedestrian boulevard.
The house is a short distance from many of the attractions and amenities in the Cass Corridor and Cultural Center, but far enough away to be quiet and low-key. There is ample, safe on-street parking along the block in front of the house. We have spacious common areas for working, enjoying a cup of coffee or just relaxing and writing down a list of things to see in Detroit.
There is internet at the house, as well as a washer/dryer for those who have longer stays. Down the street there is a drugstore for last-minute sundries, and on Grand Boulevard there is a donut shop, two diners (including one that features chicken and waffles!), convenience stores and also a cafe in the beautiful Fisher Building.
We are near two "high-frequency" bus lines, Woodward/53 and Dexter/16, as well as the Fenkell and Hamilton routes. There is also quick access to I-75, I-94 and M-10 for those arriving via car.
We have a 4 bedrooms, which are inhabited by me, my partner, and two other roommates. We all have different and busy schedules, but if you manage to meet all of us you won't be disappointed - everyone is friendly and loves guests. :)
Hannah & Aragorn are great host! I had wonderful time in Detroit. I would recommend this place to all my friend!
Good neighborhood. Contacted Hannah and Aragorn really on short notice. They made everything possible even though they where out of town. House and room are really great and we enjoyed our time in Detroit.
I enjoyed my first stay so much I came back to Hannah and Aragorn's house a second time :) They are the greatest hosts! I did have a wonderful time with you guys. You made my stay in Detroit so sweet :) I will not forget our great conversations and meals. I felt home and wish I can come back some day. I do consider Hannah and Aragorn as my friends.
The room is bright and clean. The fan works very well and the bed is very comfortable. The house also has all amenities you may be looking for: clean bathroom, large kitchen, wifi, laundry-machine, dryer, etc. It's the best option if you are looking for a nice place to stay at in Detroit, with caring and friendly hosts :)
Hannah and Aragorn has got to be the finest Americans I've ever met. I'm pretty sure both of them will be thinking, this guy is overstating, "We are not!". But I'm not saying they are perfect, but what I'm saying is that, they are incredibly sweet, kind and helpful people. And they know their City. Detroit is one of the best American cities I've ever visited, anno 2013, and the reason for that statement, are part the personalities of Hannah and Aragorn. When I come back to Detroit, I hope they are still around, and they will have another request from me. Their house is great, so is the location, and they are both very knowledgeable in and out about Detroit. Can't wait to come back, and have both of them in Copenhagen, should they ever come by. If you're from Europe, bring Hannah some strong liqourice!
Me and my friend Nana, we loved staying at their home for the 8 days that we did.
I did enjoy my first stay at Hannah and Aragorn's house a LOT. First of all, they are very nice and caring hosts. They did everything they could to make my stay confortable. I should let the reader know that they cook at lot, very well, and easily share meals with their guests. Both are very knowledgeable about the city they live in and love: Detroit.
The house is amazing! Exactly what you can wish for! Perfect location, north of the Fisher Building, close to bus routes that go to Downtown and in walkable distance from diners and grocery stores. It's a 20 min bike ride to Downtown.The house is such that even when other guests are present, you always have your own space. It is clean and very welcoming. By the way, the house is located on a quiet street and in safe neighborhood. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who needs/wants to spend some days in Detroit.

Was good stay with Hannah and Aragorn in Detroit. Was safe area and easy off/on with I-74. They were very hospitable and very good hosts. The house was clean, comfortable, organized and homey. Nice walk-in closet. Bathroom was also well-kept and clean.They made us coffee and tea in the morning. Can control room temperature to your liking. I recommend guests to stay in this nice home; for the price, its well worth it. Thanks Hannah and Aragorn for your hospitality and making us feel welcome.
We just stayed there for one night, but everything was perfect. Hannah & Aragorn waited for us, since we came a little late, they gave us a lot of bar & restaurant tips where we can go. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Would definitely stay there again. Street parking was no problem at all.
Hannah and Aragon are good hosts, the room is fine and the bed very comfortable. I arrived late one night and left early the next morning. I enjoyed my brief conversations and Hannah and Aragon. I would certainly stay there again.
Awesome room - comfortable, clean, beautiful, with individual thermostat in room to control temperature. So nice and peaceful, I didn't want to leave! Place is in a fairly happening part of detroit, but I had no problems with street parking. Didn't feel unsafe. And VERY friendly hosts - I even went out to dinner with them the night of my stay.
