About This Listing
Beautiful, creative, artistic environment at the point where three neighborhoods meet. This room is calm and tranquil, with minimal decor and neutral tones.
One block from the subway.
A beautiful and sunny apartment on the 2nd floor it features 2 private bedrooms both with full size beds. Each room accommodates 2 people. Bed rooms are back to back, joined by individual closets, so there's no noise. White in the front and Beige in the back. There's a huge open living room, dining area with a table and an enclosed kitchen. There are plants every where there is sun light, along with art work from my private collection. Apartment is modest, minimal and temperature controlled.
The Beige Room is in the back of the apartment where the light is beautiful. It's very quiet with a tranquil atmosphere, perfect for 2 people, as it's a little bigger than the white room. Fresh bedding and towels are always available.

Kitchen, bathroom, living room, pretty much everything. Guests are encouraged to relax after a long New York City day and make them selves at home here.
I give people space and I'm here if they need me.
I'm always happy to help with directions, guid books and practical NYC insider advice.
The last stop in Williamsburg on the JMZ train, this culturally mixed neighborhood is situated on the edge Williamsburg where Bushwick meets Bed-Stuy. Here you will find an avant garde area known for its vibrant underground scene. This up and coming neighborhood is stirring with bohemian night spots, funky cafes, dive bars, art gallery's and junk shops all in walking distance. Not to mention everything is very affordable and vey close to Manhattan.
The J/M/Z train is One block away, about a four minute walk. The J goes downtown and the M goes uptown.
You can take the subway here directly from JFK.
This is a great station because there are always two trains heading into the city. The J train runs express during rush hour and is 2 stops from Manhattan, very close and very fast. The M runs local and is about a 15 minute subway ride into Manhattan. This above ground train takes you over the Williamsburg bridge and is not as aggressive as the L train rush hour commute.
The L train is available however, about a 15 minute walk to the Jefferson stop. I personally prefer the J or M because its just outside the door.
There are two rooms here.
Unregistered guests are not permitted to stay the night.
Do not let anyone you do not know personally into the apartment...(not anyone)
Gigi is a great host and we spend a very nice time at her lovely appartment. Our room was very clean and nice and we could also use the kitchen for breakfast which was good to start. There is a metro station nearby and it´s quick to go to williamsburg by train, only to go to Manhatten takes a little more time.
This place is fantastic! The Beige Room is a calm oasis in the hurly-burly of Brooklyn -- quiet, comfortable and soothing. GiGi is the best hostess you could ever wish for! She's available, friendly, helpful, beautiful, talented, funny, and just plain awesome. I would most definitely recommend this lovely and immaculate place for anyone needing a room in Brooklyn. Simply the best!
Gi Gi Is an amazing host and very welcoming. The place was spotless and my room was perfectly suitable - comfortable bed, closet space to hang clothes and plenty of light.
Nous n'avons pas eu le plaisir de rencontrer Gigi mais son amie et son chat qui nous ont tres bien accueillis. L'appartement est conforme aux photos, agréable. Petit bémol sur le quartier où ns n'avons pas trouvé LE restaurant ou café dans lequel nous aurions eu plaisir à ns poser. Nous avions tendance à prendre le métro, très bien desservi, pour partir vers le Brooklyn plus branché ou vers Mahattan.
I had a terrific (email hidden)'s place! Felt instantly at home. It felt great to discover that interesting city, and in the evening come home - and really feel at home!! To have somebody to share my experiences with and just: be. Such a relaxing and beautiful place, thank you very much Gi Gi for all your effort to make my time in NYC so special.

About the Host, Gi Gi
I'm an artist from New York and have lived in NYC for 13 years. I love traveling and have been all over the world. The most interesting thing to me is the beauty and hospitality you can find once you open your self up to new things. New York City is an adventure in its self. This is a secure place to begin and end the escapade.
As a host I like to give people space and let them enjoy the apartment. I'm a very social person but also love privacy. Every situation is different and I find it very important to respect people needs on an individual basis. I live here and work here often, so chances are we will be running into each other. I always give my guests priority and make sure they are very happy.
I've had great experiences doing this. I've met the most amazing people and have made life long friends. Sometimes we have a drink together, occasionally a smoke, sometimes we have tea, sometimes we move all the furniture and have a dance party, tend to stay up late talking, do graffiti in the streets, switch up the art work in the house, and sometimes we just simply pass each other and have a nice chat.
Either way, I warmly invite you to stay.
