An affordable room in one of Brooklyn's most convenient and and upscale neighborhoods. Continental breakfast included! In-room mini frig and kettle!
I have a small room (8x13 feet) in my loft where I live and work, in the Cobble Hill section of Brooklyn. The bathroom is shared with me. 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! Brooklyn Bridge Park is only four blocks from my front door. Barclay's Center is less than a 20 minute walk from my place. It has a very comfortable double bed, which also folds up to a sofa, a small frig, and electric kettle to make coffee or tea. 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. In the summer that is less of an issue since I have the window air conditioner installed in the guest room window. 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!

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.
