Situated on the edge Williamsburg where Bushwick meets Bed-Stuy you will find this 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.
The JMZ train is less than a block away and there's a short cut making it about a 4 minute walk to the Myrtle Stop. This is a great station because there are always two trains heading in to the city. The J train runs express 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 is a great place to stay if your working any where in NYC as the commute is very easy and not as aggressive as the L train 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.
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 theres 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 and minimal, and always nice and warm. Light lounge wear is acceptable as guests are encouraged to relax after a long New York City day.
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.
I am in and out of the apartment and have a studio here where I work and occasionally sleep.

Gi gi is a fabulous host. She communicates really well and made sure to keep up with me as I traveled. Makes one feel at home before they even arrive. She has a beautiful apartment. It's simple but clearly stated. If you have any creative pulse you will adore this place, and if you don't, ask her about and she is really passionate about what she does as an artist: she's great to talk to. The room was perfect. If you need anything at all just ask! Thank you again Gi gi for a great stay.
The location is great too.
So... My stay with Gi Gi was amazing! I don't think I've ever met a more accommodating, friendly, all around awesome host like her. She had a superior knowledge of NYC, and she was always open for chats, hanging out or going out and exploring the city. Her apartment was beautiful, the bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've slept on (though it being NYC, I hardly slept on it!), and her kitty was so fun to play with. The neighbourhood itself was cool, very lively, lots of food places and easy to access from the subway system. The other guests in her house were very cool and fun, and I'm happy I've made new friends! With so many places on offer in NYC, if you want a true experience of this crazy city, come stay with Gi Gi... you will love every minute of it!
Great location to get in and out of Manhattan. Only 1 block to the subway. Cafes and food markets close by. Little skips is about a 10 min walk with the best coffee in the area and Salad Wheel have good fresh meal options. Room and apartment are a good size. GIGI is a great host!
Gigi is a lovely host! She's flexible, accommodating, and incredibly helpful. The room is incredibly comfortable and cosy.
stylish clean and comfy place with a super nice host!
It was a very nice stay at Gigis place in Williamsburg. When I arrived, it got very cold, Gigi tryed to heat the room for me because the heating was not working. The room was very clean and welcoming. I would go bak for sure.
Staying with Gi Gi was really (website hidden) Gi is flexible, easy going and caring - constantly making sure I have all I need and there is nothing that ruins my stay. Her cat made my stay more fun, that's for sure :)
The apartment is in my most favourite area in NYC which, knowing the price, is a bargain.
Next time in NYC, I will try and stay at GiGi's again!
Gigi is a very attentive host, It was cold in the apartment at night and she provided me with extra blankets and even a heater!
The location is central, easy to get to a lot of places in Brooklyn and a quick walk across the Williamsburg bridge to get to Manhattan.
Gigi and her place were perfect! Large apartment, comfy bed, and huge bathroom! Gigi was very kind, very accommodating, and just a wonderful host. Would love to stay there again, and would recommend the experience to anyone.
Gi Gi's place was clean, comfortable, and in a perfect location. We didn't see much of Gi Gi during our stay, however she was easy to contact via email/phone and was happy to help if we needed anything. Overall our (email hidden)'s was very pleasant.
