Akwaaba Mansion is a day inn located in the Stuyvesant Heights section of Bedford Stuyvesant. Akwaaba Mansion…More (sometimes referred to as Akwaaba House) is a popular destination for Bed-Stuy residents, tourists and others who are visiting from out of town. The 1860's Italian Villa-style hostel is an historic and beloved landmark. It has four guest rooms, each uniquely decorated with a different cultural theme, private baths and jacuzzis, wireless Internet, a guest library, TV and game room and a glassed-in sun porch.
It boasts luxury. But it has more of an old-school, homegrown, historic charm that seamlessly fuses Afrocentric with vintage. Local civic and political organizations often rent out the house for meetings and small parties, and it has been the location for a number of music videos.
