Hello, I am renting out a 200SF (20m2) room in a 1400SF (140m2) loftlike apartment.
The guest room has a full size bed, ac, wifi, tv (local channels only) with dvd player (netflix - you can order movies beforehand!) and a radio alarm watch with ipod console.
For families - there is enough room to set up a bed for children.
There are two more bedrooms in the apartment occupied by me and my roommate. (shared bathroom) And two cats.
I will provide you with the ingredients for breakfast (can adapt to your taste). I will not make breakfast as I might be at work when you get up.
You can use the kitchen and living room at any time for other things than breakfast.
The building has an accessible rooftop with great 360 degree views. Great sunsets behind the Manhattan skyline! You can use my small bbq if you like. There are tables and chairs on the roof.
There is a laundry in the building and a larger 24 hour laundry one block away.
The building also has a gym in the basement. (separate business)
The area is three subway stops (L train) away from Manhattan, located between Manhattan East Village and Bushwick. You will find many neat coffee shops, restaurants, bars, galleries, shops and 24 hour grocery stores within walking distance. There is also a park nearby.
It is easy to get parking one street south of Grand Street. Bicycles can be kept in the living room. There are no stairs between the street and the apartment (elevator in building).
I have been told to be a great host for dinner parties. This is the first time to host travellers. So I am waiting for your feedback! :)
The machines you see on the photographs are not in use anymore and waiting for adoption.
Susanne was a great host and very kind. The apartment/Loft as well as my room looks exactly as of the picture shown in the website. Staying in East Williamsburg is very interesting and somehow i could experience the new yorker way of life. The place is just less than 5 minutes easy walk to the L Subway which will take you direct to Manhattan within 3-4 stops. Bedford Avenue is about 2 stations from the Grand St. I can recommend the Williamsburg Burger on Grand St. coner Manhattan Ave or the Brooklyn Standards for a good quick breakfast. The Thai Restaurant, Lily Thai on 615 Grand St. was good too. The room i had was big enough and the loft was nice. Susanne and I had a funny party on the roof top of the building on July the 4th which we could see the firework on the east river.
I can not recommend Susanne and her place enough. Next time for me in New York i will definitely stay at her place.
P.S. Seppi and Pluesch, the cats are fantastic and very charming:-)))

Suzanne is a lovely host. It is a quiet apartment and you have a secure entrance. I was only there for 2 short nights. It is close to Fortunato Brothers Bakery and other great eateries. Suzanne was helpful in guiding me to a nice morning jog through McCarren Park. Nice space.
The flat was so great and we enjoyed ourselves in Suzanne's house. Suzanne and her cats were very niceful people! We hope return there one day.
Williamsburg is a very good borrough.
Thanks Suzanne and take care!
Me and a friend stayed with Susanne for a week before heading off on a coast to coast road trip. The place was great, cool suburb and she was brilliant. Really welcoming and was patient with us when we both got sick. Can't recommend highly enough. Stay here.
Susanne was a very nice host and the place had several nice touches that made us feel at home.
Susanne est une hôtesse très accueillante et toujours prête à rendre service.
Le logement correspondait à notre souhait. Il est bien desservi vers Manhattan et proche de nombreux commerces.
Susanne is very good host. She really helped me out everything.
We went to Manhattan together.
She took me around there and introduced me her friends.She was very hospitable.
I felt she was my elder sister!
And,the room was very cozy and cool.
My room was spacious and enough for single.
Before I departed,asked her to give me some towels,she sent me a response quickly and kept them in the room.
The location was great too.
This house has a rooftop where is fabulous viewing of Manhattan.
In summer,it seems to nice to spend rooftop for chill out.
Williamsburg is most trendy area in Brooklyn.
I often visit Bedford Av. and enjoied shopping,eating and walking around.
It takes only 2blocks to (website hidden). and 4 blocks to Graham Av. Both are L line.
It was easy to go to Manhattan,especially Union Square.
Therefore,I really appreciate her and recommend you this room!!
We had a wonderful time staying in Brooklyn in Susanne's flat. It was very easy-going, Susanne was very generous with providing food and every type of assistance we needed. Her cats are lovely and the room is good - plenty of space and a few added bonuses such as books on the shelf and a yoga mat in the cupboard! Thank-you Susanne for you hospitality.
We really enjoyed our stay in Susanne's loft. Our room was very comfortable, clean and spacious. Susanne was a great host giving us all sorts of tips (restaurants, farmer's markets around the area, public transportation etc.) and even welcomed us with a nice bottle of wine :). Besides the lovely apartment, there is also an amazing roof-top terrace with a great view over Manhattan (April weather didn't allow us the full enjoyment). Seppi, the cat also deserves a special mention - he is certainly the opposite of Grumpy Cat :) So, if you are on the lookout for a comfy room in the Williamsburg area with a good connection to Manhattan (the L-Train is just around the corner), Susanne's place is the perfect place for you to stay!
The place is very nice, also the room, which is relatively big and spacious. Everything as described on airbnb. Nice building with great rooftop. Close to the subway station (L, Graham Av. or Grand St Station) Nothing negative to say about Susanne either, very nice to talk to, willing to recommend restaurants etc. I would go there again.
