I live in this apartment, and host travelers like yourself in the spare rooms. This is the perfect spot for those on a budget, who still want to stay in one of the best neighborhoods in NYC. Hotels in this area typically run from $250-500 per night. From here you'll have easy access to the L and J/M/Z subway stops to get you anywhere in the city.
Be aware that many Airbnb listings which claim to be in Williamsburg, are NOT actually in the neighborhood. This place is in a prime Williamsburg location right off of Bedford Avenue, which is the bustling main street that runs through the neighborhood.
I host guests in 3 of the rooms in this apartment, so it's similar to a hostel environment (except that you get your own room!) where you'll have the opportunity to meet and interact with other travelers. The apartment is on the first floor of the building, and includes access to an open outdoor space. The room is small, but spacious enough to comfortably accommodate 1 or 2 people. The area is very safe, and the apartment has never had a problem with rodents, roaches, or bedbugs.
Williamsburg is the artistic and cultural heart of Brooklyn, with some of the best music and nightlife in NYC. Many would agree with me that this is the best neighborhood in the entire city. There are TONS of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, boutique stores, music venues, and everything else you can possibly imagine close by. When you check in, there'll be a list of some of my favorite spots in the neighborhood waiting for you on your bed.
You'll be within walking distance to the Bedford L & the Marcy JMZ subway stops, from which the entire city will be easily accessible. For subway & bus directions anywhere in the city, I recommend the website & app HopStop.
I always provide a clean room, with fresh sheets and towels for every guest. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any question or if there's anything I can help you with.
This place is in an optimal location off Bedford Ave. Very close to a number of great places, including Blank Coffee (on Broadway) and The Rabbit Hole. Very close to subway lines M and L. Interior in the room is minimal (bed, lamp, chair, mirror) but functional. No windows directly to the outside. Communication with Dom was efficient, no problems.
Everything was great. Dom was very flexible. Wanted to stay for a few extra days but since he was fully booked he easily found another room for me to stay in the same (very cool) building last minute!
nice place, it was really good for us. close to subway, bar, restaurant, basically great spot !
Dom's place was perfect for us. It was clean and cozy, easy to access and close to where we wanted to be. Exactly as he said it would be.
The place is in a great spot. There's delicious restaurants and a bagel store on the corner like no other. The setup is run like a co-op, so lots of people coming in and out. We had our own small room and the heater worked great. Dom allowed us to arrive early and drop off our bags - very helpful.
Small Predicaments: Dom doesn't answer his phone at all and he was frugal in his texting. Dom could have been more hospitable as a person, which would have made us feel more comfortable. The apt could have been cleaner as well.
I'm frankly confused by this review.
I woke up early on a Saturday morning to accommodate an early check-in that had been discussed but not confirmed until 4 am.
With regards to the instance in which Jon tried to reach me by phone and was unable, which related to a key exchange, I had already provided him with instructions via the Airbnb messenger and explained to him in person that my cell phone receives poor service in the apartment and that he was better off reaching me via the Airbnb app.
I do regret that I was unusually busy with work this weekend and was thus unable to chat as much as I would have liked.
We had a very nice stay in New York. The location of this place is very good. 10 min walk to the train station, so you are relatively fast in Manhattan. The appartment looked like presented in the pictures.
Communication with the host was also very good. Everything went right. Dom was also flexible. We could leave our baggage in the apartment after check out time and grab it again later in the afternoon.
Dom was a fine host. He was easy to communicate with and provided a clean safe environment to stay in. Although we didn't need them, there were adequate kitchen facilities available for our use. The location was great and gave us easy access to all the places we needed to go.
Everything went well and we had a pleasant stay at Dom's place.
Dom's apartment is in the perfect location in Williamsburg. He made it very easy for me to pick up a key and I had a great time!
Great price and great location in Williamsburg.
