  • Not 100% what I expected from the airbnb visuals, but serviceable. If you need a place to stay close to Franklin station - this is the place.

  • This was a very nice, stylish apartment that was very conveniently located near the subway. There were some nice cafes in the area too - especially Outpost for coffee/sandwiches, Hill Cafe for brunch and Peaches Hothouse for southern-style dinner and cocktails. There is also a supermarket round the corner on Fulton. The apartment had everything we needed and the daybed in the little room of the bedroom was perfectly comfortable for one. The only problem we had with the apartment was the noise from the street as the windows in the bedroom + side room do not properly close and are covered with plastic that rattles a bit in the wind. The bus stop opposite and other traffic can be quite noisy and disruptive if you want a lie-in but we didn't find it affected our sleep. We appreciated Adreinne's independent approach (self pick-up of the keys, wifi password provided) and she was very understanding and flexible when we had some confusion at the end of our stay. Airbnb were also very helpful about this and overall we were very pleased. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment.

  • I enjoyed a comfortable and convenient long-term stay. The street outside is a bit harsh, as other reviews have mentioned, but you can head out in any direction and find many of Brooklyn's gems close by. Tatsu Sushi, Outpost, and my favorite, Alice's Arbor, just to name a few. There is much more if you venture out a little farther. It's really great to have the C train right there. The flat is cozy and sufficiently supplied. The bedroom is a bit noisy, but I could live with it. Adrienne is a quick responder to questions and problems, which is all you can really ask for. As an added bonus, I had a car while I was there and I could almost always park right in front. Crazy I know.

  • We were 4 people staying in the apartment and we found it clean and comfortable, although it was a little bit cold in the main bedroom.
    The location is excellent; extremely close to the subway, and finding street parking nearby is very easy. Communication with Adreinne was excellent and she was very helpful/pleasant. I would definitely consider staying here again the next time we visit NYC.

  • The apartment was comfortable and very clean. Luminous and spacious. Very close to the subway. Adreinne was helpful and well organized. There is not intercom or telephone, so if you will receive visits or your lost baggage, you must be waiting at the window...

  • Nice apartment was east to get to Manhatten and close to Prospect Park. Enjoyed being in Brooklyn as it is a bit more 'realistic' than staying in Manhatten less tourists, and a well price nail shop near by. Close to food outlets for and last min essentials, aundry shops and a drycleaner.

    A/C wasn't installed when we arrived but this was sorted out very quickly with 2 units put in.

    Apartment is near a rail station so that meant being woken up at 8am every morning by the noise in the main and second bedroom but I guess you could buy earplugs or something.

    Apartment was well decorated but not much entertainment in the house ie no tv or radio.

  • Paul was gracious and allowed us to enter the apartment 1 1/2 hours earlier than he expected us. He still needed to do some cleaning up but he was pleasant and conversational while he did it. He showed us the "plumbing problem" which was that you had to turn the shower on with a pair of channel lock pliers. He said they were waiting for a part but from the looks of those rusty pliers, I think they had been waiting for a very long time. Both my husband and myself were nearly scalded the next morning trying to adjust the water temperature with those pliers. By the end of our 4 night visit we had it figured out but I do hope if you stay here, they have this fixed. The apartment is quite noisy because it is on the street. If you close the french doors to the bedroom, you will have a relatively quiet night. However if like my daughter, you have to sleep on the couch in the living room, you will not get much sleep. The apartment is right on the street and across from an all night bus stop as well as an elevated train. The kitchen was nice to have for fixing meals and everything was clean. The bathroom is big and spacious. The french doors that separate the bedroom from the main living area are glass so don't count on any privacy if there are more than two of you staying in this apartment. The apartment is convenient to subways that go directly into Manhattan and though a very busy area of Brooklyn, we felt relatively safe. You do have to unlock and re-lock 5 locks using 4 keys to get into and out of the apartment so if someone was actually trying to molest you in any way, you would never get into the apartment fast enough to get away!

  • Communication from Adreinne was very good and prompt. We were 2 adults and 2 children (one of which was a baby) and we stayed for 8 nights.

    Location
    Directly opposite the subway station with a shuttle to Prospect Park is very convenient. There wasn't much by way of places to go or hangout in the exact neighbourhood. A few blocks down Fulton there was a place called the Outpost, and down Franklin across Fulton we noticed a nice looking Espresso bar on our last day. If you are looking for a place to lay your head at night while exploring NY, then location isn't a huge issue.

    The Apartment
    It's very much like the photos. However when we arrived it was not clean. There were bed linens left in a cupboard, so I made up the beds. I opened a window to air the place and was overwhelmed with dust balls flying through the place. Under the bed, around the furniture etc. It had been some time since this place had been given a good cleaning. Adreinne was very responsive when I contacted her, she sent her assistant Paul who came a couple of hours later and did some cleaning. He was a very nice chap and even offered to go get me some bottled water.

    This apartment is up 3 flights of stairs. Not a problem for able bodied people. I arrived alone with baby, stroller and large suitcase. Adreinne very kindly asked her neighbour below who came along and carried up my case. It was also no problem leaving the stroller in the hall below.

    Overall Adreinnes place is a good choice. It's reasonably priced and the location opposite the subway is ideal if you're exploring the city.

  • Our stay at the Brownstone went well. The place is very similar to the pictures, the subway is right across the street, and it's very spacious for two (or I imagine, even up to 4 people).

    Because the subway and bus stop are right outside the window, it is extremely loud! We turned on the fan and took some Tylenol PMs to help. If you are a light sleeper, I would not suggest this place.

    Adreinne was easy to contact through our stay when we had trouble with the heat. She was very helpful and kind. Thanks!

    January 2012
  • We all really enjoyed staying in this place. Its right across from the subway station and very easy to get around from. We never saw Adreinne but she had everything set up for us so it wasn't an issue. All in all a very nice place to stay in Brooklyn.
