Please note that this not a hotel room with a 24 hours service which is why it's so so so much cheaper, and much more laid back than hotels. Also, the room is in a house that was built in the 1920s so while you can find so many of Brooklyn's characters in it, it's not really shiny. In addition, the pictures are taken by a professional Airbnb photographer. I love those photos but some guests commented that Airbnb photos didn't convey the real look of the room. In any case, pictures are taken for the same room, I assure you. Lastly, please consider picking up after yourselves (towels, bath stuff, bathroom mat, and wash your plates/pots after cooking). At times, guests think that the house is untidy or dirty when it's actually another guest who decided to leave things unwashed... etc. :). In addition, please be advised that when you don't clean after yourself in the kitchen or bathroom, or when you eat in your bedroom that there is a chance that you see a mouse or roach. Thanks for reading.

  • Wonderful host. Bailed us out on the day of during hurricane sandy. Responded within 45 minutes to inquiry. We were in the place an hour later. Natasha was so nice and her place was great. Awesome experience - no hotels in the area because of Sandy - thank goodness for AirBNB.

    November 2012
  • Our stay was great because of Natasha. We couldn't have asked for a more welcoming, easy-going host. The room is big enough for two people to stay there comfortably, the house is close to the subway and the park, it is a good neighbourhod (although it was a bit intimidating at night for 2 Canadians) but we had no problems!! We highly recommend Natasha's place.

  • This picture cannot be the bedroom i got. There are more than one. I saw 4 or 5 gentlemen in the 6 days I was there. My bedroom (rear) was not as nice.

    Response from Natasha:

    No, Richard, you certainly booked the room you stayed in. The same furniture and the same setting and those photos were taken by an Airbnb professional photographer. Next time you have this issue with another host, I suggest that you talk to your host right away and have her or him show you the pictures on the spot for comparison. Also, you may have seen 4 or 5 or even 6 men or people and that's because some people stay with me for one or two nights. Sometimes a couple stay in one room too. In your case, you stayed more than five days. I really wish you had communicated these issues with me when you were here.
