Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • John was a really great host, totally concerned in make our stay as comfortable as possible. The place was good located, Brooklyn Heights resulted in a quiet and very nice place to stay and sleep, with some nice bars and restaurants just a couple of blocks away to go out at night if you want. The subway was close to the apartment, so we can go into the crowded Manhattan in just minutes. So, for us this balance was actually really good. I totally recommend stay with John, the apartment is really nice decorated, super-clean and cozy, with all the necessary to make you feel like home. Thanks John!

  • JB is the perfect host. The apartment is well located, convenient, clean, comfortable and - well - just perfect. I can't recommend it enough. If you want the best Airbnb location in New York - this is it! Thanks JB!!!

  • John's brownstone apartment is perfectly located on a beautiful quiet street in Brooklyn Heights near everything! The apartment itself is immaculate, comfortable and felt like a home away from home. When I arrived, John has placed soft scrumptious towels and scented soap on the bed and the bed itself was extremely comfortable. Needless to say that I will return on my next visit.

  • Great place, great neighborhood, great host! This was our first time using AirBnb and we couldn't have been happier with our stay. J.B was very informative about the neighborhood and gave specific instructions on transportation to his flat. He always responded to my questions fast and provided detailed information. Although he was out of town when we first arrived, he called to make sure that we arrived safely and gained access to the flat. Brooklyn Heights is definitely a fun place to stay while visiting New York. I would recommend this place to anyone thinking about staying in Brooklyn.

  • John's appartment is nice. He's very clean. The place is big and the room he rented was wonderful.John works a lot and when he's at his home, he shared the kitchen and the living room everytime I requested him.

  • My previous plans did not work out, so with little warning , I asked John if he could put me up for the weekend.
    What a really nice person. He was so considerate to meet me early the morning of my arrival, make sure I knew how to work all the keys, explained where everything was, recommended nearby breakfast places.
    My visit was like staying with a friend.
    I will definitely stay with John again.

    October 2011
  • John is a gracious host who made every effort to make me feel at home. His apartment is spotless and very comfortable. The neighborhood is lovely, safe, and close to many restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.

  • Our stay with John was quite the scoop for us:

    We booked with two weeks notice and found his place to be at least half the rate of any of the nearby hotels - not to mention the Manhattan rates. (We walked from the appartment across Brooklyn bridge to Manhattan in about 30 minutes! great trip and view!)

    John was very pleasant on email and flexible about leaving a key out for us.

    The appartment exceeded our expectations: it's a very tidy/ clean place and very charming. All the necessities we wanted were at our disposal and John even helped call internet service when we had trouble hooking up with his wifi - which worked fine.

    John took the time to walk us around the neighbourhood, showed us good places to eat and shop and was generally very attentive to our needs. The one day he was in the appartment, he was very good at giving us privacy.

    In conclusion: 5 stars, worth every dollar and we'd definitely recommend it! The place is clean, charming and John is flexible and forthcoming... And the best breakfast in the world is 2 blocks away!

Hi! 30 year old professional in the city. I keep a tidy home and a quiet space that is perfect if you are in town on business or just need a relaxing place after exploring the city. Brooklyn Heights is a premier location just across the Brooklyn Bridge with spectacular views and plenty of its own unique style and nightlife. The apt is close to many subways on one of the nicest streets in the neighborhood, everyone says this on here but I actually mean it!! Hope to hear from you soon.
