An affordable room in one of Brooklyn's most convenient and and upscale neighborhoods. Continental breakfast included! In-room mini frig and coffeemaker!
I have a small room in my loft where I live and work, in the Cobble Hill section of Brooklyn. It’s centrally located within three to four blocks of the F, G, R, 2, 3, 4, 5, A, and C trains, and a ten minute walk to the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge. It is located in one the trendiest neighborhoods in Brooklyn, complete with fabulous restaurants, watering holes, and shops! The new Brooklyn Bridge Park is only four blocks from my front door. It has a very comfortable double bed, which also folds up to a sofa, a small frig, and Nespresso machine. There’s wireless internet, hairdryer, and iron with ironing board for your use. The room faces a busy thoroughfare, and can be a little noisy at times, a fact of life in an urban environment! To remedy this, I have equipped the room with a white noise machine and earplugs for those who are light sleepers. A simple continental breakfast is provided every morning. The bathroom is shared, and has a bath with shower. I live in the back of the loft and work in the front. The guest room is just off my studio in the front. I have it set up so there is have plenty of privacy during the early morning, evening and at night. During the day, however, I will be working in the studio adjacent to the room. This is usually not a problem, since most guests are out during the day, seeing the sights of this wonderful city. If you expect to be spending a lot of time in the room during the daytime hours, this may not be the best arrangement for you. And if you don’t mind two long flights of stairs, that would be helpful. This is a 150 year old landmark building, so no elevator! Previous to my art career, I worked in the hospitality industry, so I know a thing or two about inn keeping, and will do everything possible to make your stay an enjoyable one! I am gay friendly!
Please note that I am less likely to accept a reservation from someone who does not have a photograph that shows their face (without sunglasses), and some information of themselves on their profile, as well as at least four I.D, verifications, especially if you have no previous reviews and ratings. Thanks.
I offer access to guest room and shared bathroom. I do not offer access to the kitchen.
Interaction with Guests
I give the guests plenty of privacy, but try to make myself available in the morning, to offer tips and recommendations.

Other Things to Note
There is a small frig in the room with juice, butter and jam. There is a nespresso machine in the room and tea is also available. Every morning at 8am, I deliver a bagel, scone, croissant, or something "bready" to a shelf just outside the guestroom, to have with the provisions already in the room. Please let me know if you have any allergies or food restrictions. Gluten free breakfast options are available!

You should not mind two flights of stairs.
Please note that I cannot have children staying here due to the fact that I do not have the window guards required by law for children to live here. Also, my studio in the adjacent room has many tools and sharp objects that a curious child could hurt themselves with.
Awesome host, very flexible and kind. I had an issue with the taxi arriving from JFK and Pamela solved it quickly and very efficiently, sparing me a lot of trouble.
The place is as warm and hospitable as described, although it is true there's a bit of noise in the morning because of the street.
Pamela is an excellent host!!
She kindly told me about some vintage shops and jazz bars where she recommends, and how to ride a bus...etc.
The room and bathroom are also nice and clean. I felt like home.
I found that there are many excellent shops and restaurants in Brooklyn.
I enjoyed exploring around Downtown-Brooklyn, Dumbo, Williamsburg,and some flea markets in Brooklyn.
I thank Pamela very much and want to stay this room again!
Pamala was a wonderfull host, she made us feel at home immediately, helpfull and kind. I will definitely recommend her :-)
Great neighborhood, and very convenient with a Trader Joe's and 24-hr RiteAid right down the block. Pam is great-- warm but gives you all the space and privacy you want. Definitely recommend!
Pamela was very prompt in her responses to my questions. She was friendly, welcoming and the experience was great! The room is as seen in the picture. She provides a little breakfast for you every morning, and there is a tiny fridge in the room with orange juice, plus there is tea, coffee and whatever else you might need. Plus Brooklyn is a nice little neighborhood to explore, outside of Manhattan. Place is also near to the subway and walking distance to many great restaurants in Brooklyn
Pam is the greatest host I ever had. She asked us if we drink coffee and she put coffee, tea, orange juice, and milk in the room. Every morning, she made break fast for us. That was amazingly great! The location is perfect, close to everything I need. The room is exactly same as the pictures on the list. The room is really cozy and clean. Overall, I had great experience with her and her charming apartment.
I had a great stay at Pamela's! The location is perfect, Cobble Hill, close to subway station Court St, Borough Hall or Bergen St. Pam's place is warm, charming and perfectly clean. The room is confortable, just the right size for me, and I appreciated to have a small fridge and a coffee machine for breakfast! Pam is an excellent host, nice and very welcoming, I felt like home and I definetly will stay again!
I am an artist and have a small craft business in my loft, where I live and have my studio. I am lucky to live in one of the best neighborhoods, in one the best boroughs, the greatest city in the world. Looking forward to sharing it with you!
