There is a shoe off policy in most of the house. Although we are fabulous cooks, no meals are provided. Visitors other than registered guests are not permitted unless arranged in advanced.
We really enjoyed our stay at Lorelei and Alex. They were able to accomodate us from the beginning by first letting us book the room last minute and letting us arrive before the check-in time. We always had quick answers to our emails prior to our arrival and Alex even offered his help to guide us on the way to the location. The place is nice and clean, also really close to the subway !
I appreciated the comfort of having our own bathroom and fridge, Lorelei and Alex were also very thoughtful by putting cold water in the fridge for us.
They are great hosts letting us have our own privacy but also very available for questions or chats. They gave us good recommendations about the neighboorhood and restaurants.
I would highly recommend the place.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Alex et Lorelei ! La chambre correspondait à la description : nous nous y sommes sentis à l'aise et tranquilles.
Le logement est propre et charmant. Nos hôtes, très amicaux, ont tout fait pour qu'on se sente bien !
L'emplacement est idéal pour le métro. Il y a des commerces à proximité.
En bref, adresse à conseiller !
We really enjoyed our stay in this house.
It was very comfortable, spacious, homely and clean as shown in
Lorelei and Alex are excellent hosts, very friendly,helpful and warm-
hearted. They gave us many useful information concerning the close surrounding and visits in New York (which you not receive as a tourist).
Subway, busstop, nice restaurants and cafes and a supermarket are not fare away (5-10 minutes walk) It's a nice and quiet area.
I would highly recommend this place ! Lorelei and Alex , thanks for the fantastic time !
Sans aucun doute, notre meilleure expérience airbnb. Lorelei et Alex nous accueillis avec bienveillance et beaucoup de générosité. New-york n'en a été que plus qu'exceptionnelle ! La bouche de métro est à quelques pas et Manhattan à 20 minutes. Le quartier est très agréable à vivre, de bons restos à proximité et une chouette ambiance. Encore merci à eux deux pour cette semaine magique et pour leur humanité si belle. Khadija (qui en profite pour vous dire plus de deux mots ;-) et Laurent
Wir haben insgesamt sechs wundervolle Tage bei Alex und Lorelei in Brooklyn verbracht. Die Unterkunft hat uns sehr gut gefallen und auch die beiden Gastgeber waren immer hilfsbereit (Restaurant- und Sightseeing-Tipps, Wegbeschreibungen, etc.) und sehr freundlich. Man hat sich gleich willkommen gefühlt und während des gesamten Aufenthalts einen kleinen Einblick in ihr Leben und ihre Arbeit als Künstler erhalten. Vielen Dank nochmal für alles!
Lorelei and Alex were the perfect hosts, giving us a warm welcome, many usefull tips and an excellent coffee. Two friendly and helpfull people who made us really feel like home. My girlfriend and I stayed at this nice oasis in the heart of brooklyn for one week and it was the perfect place to discover New York. Subway and bus stops are close by so it is easy to get arround and to Manhattan. There are also a lot of excellent place to eat and having drinks in the neighborhood (Thanks Alex and Lorelei for your good recommendations). The room itself is really nice with everything you need for a perfect stay in New York. I can highly recommend it.
About the Host, Lorelei & Alex
My husband and I are considered by all of our friends to be amazing hosts. We are a mix of nationalities: Alex was born in Buenos Aires and I am a native New Yorker, we met in Jerusalem where we lived for a large portion of our lives. We work together as artists. We love our Brooklyn home and practically did all the work on it. Alex and I are devoted to art and to our community, we created a number of art murals around the neighborhood. Among our favorite activities: hanging out with people, cooking good and healthy meals, we are avid readers and enjoy quality cinema rather than TV. When looking back at past travelling experiences the most memorable ones are those in which we engaged with local people and became temporarily rooted in the place we visited. This is the feeling we would like to give you when staying at our home.
