Nous venons de quitter l'appartement Urban Jungle et nous en gardons un merveilleux souvenir ! Tout est exactement comme sur les photos, l'ambiance est cosy, on s'y sent bien.
Le jour de notre départ, nous repartions que le soir et voulions profiter de notre dernière journée à New-York, on nous a gentiment proposé de laisser nos affaire dans le hall (sécurisé), le top !
Found the place (eventually) exactly as described, clean and very well appointed with everything required for a great short stay.
We just stayed at the Urban Jungle for two weeks with our children (3 and 5) . The apartment looks just as on the picture. We immediately felt at home. The J-train is less than 5 minutes walking distance, although the line does not run as frequently as other ones. Eric and the other persons I have been in touch with when I had certain questions (eg. to lower the heating, to have packages sent to the house) were all very accommodating and helpful and I always received a reply almost right away. In the neighborhood itself there is not much to do, but it's a quiet and safe area. If you are a tourist who'll be spending most of the time sightseeing and would like to stay in a cosy, spacious apartment for NY standards, this is the place for you!
Eric is a wonderful and responsive host. The apartment is very comfortable and truly meets every need. All the necessary amenities and great interior design. Eric also offered very helpful suggestions on the area surrounding the apartment, and checked in to make sure everything was ok.
We met a few glitches, but Eric responded to these problems immediately and with great consideration. When we first arrived, the apartment smelled like gas (which was a result of a small problem with the stove which was easily solved). Eric immediately responded to my call and talked me through the issue. The fire alarm ran out of battery, so the alarm went off in the middle of the night. Again, Eric responded immediately and offered to send someone to switch out the battery.
All in all, if you're looking to stay in Bed-Stuy in an apartment with a lot of space, book at urban jungle!
Our stay at Eric's apartment was outstanding. Everything is exactly as pictured and described.
Although we never met Eric, he made check in and check out as smooth as possible. Check in is at 3, but he allowed us to come earlier so we could drop off our belongings- he did warn us that the cleaning crew doesn't finish until 3. We arrived maybe 45 min before 3 and the crew was already gone and the apartment nice and clean.
The apartment is located 2 blocks away from the J train, so it only takes about 20 min to get to lower Manhattan. About 45 min to upper Manhattan.
Is definitely recommend this apartment to anyone checking it out!
We didn't meet Eric or anyone else but everything was ready when we got here and the apartment was exactly as described. As said in some of the previous comments, the pipes are a bit noisy but we enjoyed the fact the apartment is well heated. The neighborhood is quiet and the subway is only a few minutes away so we didn't have the impression of being too far from Manhattan as I first feared. I gladly recommend this place!
We were delighted with the apartment. It was really well set up for guests and the sun streaming in the windows was a real treat during
the cold snap in NY. We'll definitely be back!
