$$$ NAME YOUR OWN PRICE $$$
When the nightly rate is set to $10/night, that is not the actual price, but what it means is that there's flexibility for those dates and you can name your own price. If we can figure something out that works for everyone then I'd more than happy to host you.
Please be sure to click on the "calendar" tab above the photos to see if the nights you're interested in are priced at $10/night.
So again, $10 = name your own price. This does not apply to any other nights on the calendar so please be sure to look at your dates specifically.

Hope was very responsive, even though she was traveling internationally at the time of our stay! Her cleaning lady met us at the apartment to show us around and give us the keys. The apartment was spacious, and the beds were large and comfortable. The drawers were full of clean towels and linens, and the beds were made with clean linens. This isn't luxury, but it has the basics. But the absolute best part of this place is the location. Yes, the entrance to the building may seem grungy, but it is only 2 blocks to the bustling commercial districts of Park Slope, a few more short blocks to Prospect park. Parking was easy on this block, and once we parked, we didn't drive again til we had to leave the city for home. We were in town for a wedding, but also got to have a little vacation in the Slope! Thanks, Hope, for your responsiveness and your warmth. We felt it across the globe!
Hope reacted really fast and saved me and 6 of my friends, after our reservation in NYC got cancelled! The location is really nice, with many restaurants around the area. Also it takes 20-30 mins to get into Manhattan.
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The neighborhood was really awesome. Union Street Station is just on the corner, a stone-throw away from the apartment. Take the R into Manhattan, which only takes about 25-30 minutes. Great location.
Après la reservation, j'ai reçu un mail me présentant une augmentation et une autre modalité de paiement du service ménage, j'ai refusé.
L'appartement ne correspondait qu'imparfaitement à la description :
- pas de wi fi
- divan difficile à installer
- chauffage tres bruyant et non réglable
- pas de climatisation comme annoncé
- 5 chaises pour 6
- cafetières ne fonctionnant pas et vaisselle couverte de poussière.
- propreté moyenne
- difficultés pour correspondre avec propriétaire absent : uniquement par mail, sans wi fi à l'appartement, plutot gênant.
L'appartement est par ailleurs bien placé pres du métro ligne R menant directement à Manhattan.
Lovely and cosy space in a very convenient location. The place is in the middle of everything. The apartment was so beautifully furnished and we both felt very safe and comfortable there. If you are in the front bedroom you'll get some noise from the sidewalk, but that's just a part of being in New York. Everything we could have needed for a trip.
Great stay in Hope's apartment. There were 6 of us - a little squished but tons of fun. Hope was a great host and we'd definitely stay here again! Apartment was clean and comfortable. Neighborhood is great - late night food options are close by, the subway is half a block away. Thanks for a great time!
