About This Listing
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.

I ask that you please read my entire listing before booking, to make sure this is a good fit for you. Check in is 2pm. Please notify if arrival is after 7pm. Check out time is 12 noon. We can possibly accommodate earlier or later, if requested. No smokers please. There is no smoking allowed in the building, or in front of the building. No more than two guests will fit in this room.
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.
Our stay in Brooklyn was very nice! The old and charming apartment is well located, near several subway stations, the Brooklyn heights promenade and the Brooklyn bridge. Pamela is a wonderful hostess. Its diversified breakfasts make us discover the american bakery. She is always available to give us advices and is full of attention.
We really enjoyed our stay at Alchemy.
The apartment's location is perfect, 5-10 minutes walk to a metro station, 20 minutes ride to Manhattan.
Pastries with butter and jam for a complimentary light breakfast was a great way to fuel an active day in New York.
Pamela was very helpful and responsive. She recommended some great restaurants nearby and museums in Manhattan.
The only downside was a noise from the street outside but Pamela provided us with earplugs and a white noise machine so it was not a big deal after all.
I would recommend Pamela's place to anybody traveling to New York.
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
