Laura was very graciously flexible about my coming and going at odd times. The location near the subway was so handy and she was a thoughtful hostess, offering me a fan for my windowless room and coffee for my jet lag. I am glad I stayed in her home which was perfectly convenient for where I needed to be in Brooklyn and also to get to Manhattan easy and quickly. It was quiet at night and birds were chirping out the living room windows in the morning.
my stay was decent. Backgrond on the situation i was moving to new york looking for a job and appt while staying here.
PROS: 1) location to subway, 2) neighboorhood seemed reasonable safe 3) she made me a cup of coffee on 2 different mornings 4) her artwork
CONS: 1) the code she gave me to the appt was wrong (genuine accident, i think) but i was left sitting on my luggage until someone came to the building, she wasnt allowed to use her phone that day due to her religous beliefs, so it was awhile 2) the dog nico pees on everything, including my stuff in the time it took me to walk to the restroom; he leaves treats all over the floor and at one point she covered his pee pad with a second pee pad, he also barks all the time 3) one main reason i booked here was because i would be sharing an appt with a girl. However 2 nights a week her boyfriend slept on the couch In the living room which is extremely uncomfortable when walking to the restroom in the middle of the night And on the 2 nights she wasnt at her appartment another male friend of hers (who actually hardly knows her at all) slept in her room. She didnt even ask if i was okay with any of this just told me he would be there that night. 4) the kitchen: I do not cook. So i thought this would never be a problem however i was not even allowed to microwave my food in my conatiner because it wasnt kosher (chicken and cheesey noodles). 5) cleanliness. The dishes are never done. Roaches every night around the sink and in the restroom. Also there is a heavy mouse infestation behind her t.v/ guest refrigerator i heard them there numerous nights and eventually saw one on the night her friend was staying there. if you look she has mouse traps there and mouse poop if she hasnt swept. 6) the room is hot. i woke up sweating pretty often. 7 ) she accused me of smoking in the house when the smell was coming from the outside hall. She said sorry when she realized it wasnt me. She also accused me of having people over and told me i wasnt following house rules when she saw some large shoes. Again appologized when she realized they were my big shoes (size 10) her exact words "Hi Callie, did you bring someone with you last night? I saw a big pair of shoes by the door. It says in the house rules that my guest aren't allowed to bring people." Even though she has strangers staying over.
.... all in all i would not stay here again. I could see how this might work for a night or two but anymore than that i dont think is worth it. i never felt 'at home'. And it was fairly expensive.
l'appartamento è molto bello, la camera spaziosa e comoda e Laura ha fatto tutto il necessario per ospitarmi nel migliore dei modi. L'appartamento è vicino alla metropolitana M (1 fermata e poi la L per Manhattan, circa 40 min). Per me vale la pena stare a Brooklyn invece di Manhattan, prezzi più convenienti e quartieri più a misura d'uomo. Quindi sicuramente consiglio un soggiorno da Laura!
Laura's place was good. A quiet and respectful home. I had no problems and was a pleasant stay.
It was a wonderful experience. I greatly enjoyed the place.
