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 kettle!
I have a small room (8x13 feet) 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 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. 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 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.
Pamela est très gentille et a fait en sorte que nous nous sentions comme chez nous, avec chaque matin, un bon petit déjeuner qui nous attendait. Ce qui permet de bien démarrer une longue journée new yorkaise. Appartement très bien situé, à 2 rues des city bike et proche des transports en commun. Pas très loin du pont de brooklyn : peut se faire à pied. Et vue magnifique. Merci à pamela pour son accueil, toujours chaleureux
Pamela is very kind and attentive.
she always greet to me with smile and simple English conversation.
(I can't speak English very well.)
This trip is my first visit to NYC and use "Airbnb".
So, I was able to spend with confidence in all respects.
I am very grateful to her.
We had a great time in New York ! Pamela was very nice and helpful anytime we needed. She's always had a tip to give to us. But we allo had all the privacy we wanted. The room was as described, small but nice. It's a bit noisy even at night but we live in a big city so it wasn't a problem for us. Breakfast was nice and changed everyday, perfect before exploring NYC all day. Pamela nicely provided us conditioned air , useful in this beginning of September!
Thanks again for all !!
Alchemy was a magic way to start our NY holiday. Its location was perfect for exploring a host of Brooklyn neighbourhoods - just set off in any direction to discover something new. Pam was a fabulous host. She kept a low profile but was friendly, attentive and kind when needed, and always happy to share handy tips and local knowledge to enhance our holiday. Although small, the room is bright, cheery and well equipped. Pam has thought of everything: breakfast, a kettle, maps, even earplugs to dull the sounds of Brooklyn buzzing at your doorstep, inviting you to explore. We highly recommend Alchemy.
Great location for visiting New York City: a few metro stops from downtown Manhattan and walking distance to several shops and restaurants. The room is exactly as described and the apartment has a special charming flavour. Pamela is a host worth of a special mention. She was so kind, respectful and ready to help us in many ways that we simply felt at home. She suggested us great restaurants and prepared for us delicious breakfasts!
We strongly suggest anyone not to miss the chance to spend some days at Pamela' s place!!
Great location, unique building and fantastic host! Thank you Pam for a memorable stay. The homemade baking in the morning and thoughtful suggestions made for a very easy stay. I loved that the space was central to restaurants and shops (so close to
The Brooklyn Barneys!) as well as several metro stations. We will definitely stay here again!
Pam is an awesome person! warm personality and very responsible. I really enjoyed staying here! I felt like living home. The room was pretty clean. a light breakfast would be served every day!
Trader Joe and Key food is a min walk. many interesting shops are near by. close to the subway.
I would love to stay here again if I have a chance to come back to Brooklyn in the future!
