This is my HOME not a PARTY SPACE!! If you are interested in having a party or a large gathering at my apartment please do not enquire. Thanks for understanding!
The reservation was canceled 79 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Leticia's home was everything we needed and more-- the photos don't do it justice! It's spacious bright and very clean.
Picking up the keys was easy and Leticia was readily available to answer any questions. I would highly recommend staying here. If you are driving, be sure to be aware of the parking signs!
Thanks again a lovely stay!
We live in Brooklyn and needed a great place to stay for a night out without our sweet son. We love Franklin Ave - just two blocks away - and so we went with Leticia's place. Its BEAUTIFUL. This is what AirBnB is all about. Great price, huge comfy bed, very nice bathroom with a shower on one side and a deep bath on the other. Great artwork too. We didn't cook because the whole point was to be close to Sunshine Company and their delicious brunch, but the kitchen looked great and the whole place was very, very clean. Hotel clean. She was responsive, flexible and kind. We booked just a few days before we needed a place (another option fell through) and she was very quick to get back to us. Thanks Leticia - it was great.
What more can I say? Everything previous reviewer said is true: Leticia is a great host. she is very friendly, very helpful and accommodating. Her place is clean and comfortable. The neighborhood is safe and quiet. Parking is not a problem but you do have to pay attention to what street sign says. In all it was very satisfying experience.
Leticia'a apartment was beautiful, new and within walking distance to public transit. It was the perfect spot to stay for a long weekend! I will definitely consider booking again for future trips to Brooklyn.
Leticia was a great host, and her place was a delight to stay in. She had a bunch of suggestions for places to eat/things to do/etc. I wish I could have stayed longer, and I'd love to stay again (for a few days this time) next time I'm in the area. The view was spectacular, the place was very tidy and peaceful, and overall it was a very nice shelter for our short stay in NYC.
This place is astonishing!
The pictures understate the breathtaking features of Leticia's place! Not only the location within a nice foot walk's range to the metro station Franklin Ave. are great: the apartment is quite new, clean, tidy and guests have access to a private balcony overviewing the Crown Heights surrounding and the Manhattan skyline!
Moreover, guests have access to a shared roof top terrace with an even more awesome view.
Letitia is a great host, she was lightning fast in communication and gave us a warm welcome and a guidance as well.
This apartment is a real insider's tipp, if you want to stay in NYC!
We absolutely loved Leticia´s place and (email hidden)e area is nice, very close to transportation and we had great restaurant's around. The appartment is comfy, clean and very well organized.
Leticia is a great, attentive hostess and everything went well.
It was a really great experience and we highly recommend this place!
Leticia was a wonderful host and very knowledgeable of the area. Please DO take her advice when it comes to restaurants. We looked like super stars when meeting up with friends at restaurants she had suggested. The apartment is gorgeous with great view of the city and close to transportation. I wished we could have stayed longer but we would definitely recommend her to all of our friends. Thank you Leticia!
I almost hate to review this place because I want it all to myself! Leticia is an excellent host- the best of what AirBnB is all about. The apartment is beautiful, spacious as described, lots of windows, well stocked, very comfortable, and well situated. If you haven't stayed in this area, you may be surprised by the transitional look/feel of some of the blocks, but it was friendly, full of food and coffee options, close to major subways, and the museum and park are great day places for exploring. The commute into Manhattan is a breeze- you get can anywhere in one train and they run all the time. Just plan. I will always check with Leticia first from now on when I am in New York for business. I am very very glad to have found her and her place here.
