I stayed here for a week and the place was great. Clean and i got mini cupcakes and juice on arrival! Location was awesome also as it was minutes from the metro and a short walk to Fort Greene and Atlantic Ave.
We could not have been more pleased with our stay at Ali’s place. Although we looked quickly at the reviews, which were all great, our goal was to be at a place close to our son who had been injured in an accident and was released from the Hospital to further recuperate at his apartment. Proximity was the primary goal.
Ali’s physical place was everything all have said before, spotless, well cared for and just right; nevertheless, it was Ali, herself who made a significant difference for us. Known for her greeting goodies, she changed that upon learning my dietary limitations. She expressed care and understanding for our circumstances and helped us as a friend though a difficult period. She made suggestions for local assistance from drive services, to food services, to dealing with the police to get the accident report. To us (way older) she was a mother, a helper and guide. Careful not to be intrusive, she made sure that we were ok and offered helpful suggestions about how to deal with our son’s recuperation.
Ali’s Place was for us a home away from home and she was generous and giving. Great place, great host. It doesn’t get any better than this!
The room is comfortable and spacious. Sahr is a delightful lady. She provided us with delicious, home-made cookies and made us very welcome. We would stay there again without hesitation.
Ali is a charming host and made our first NYC experience very pleasant from the drinks in our room when we arrived to the provisions for our first breakfast. We especially enjoyed having the garden area where we could sit at a table with a glass of wine after a busy day. Thanks for your restuarant tips too Ali
Our host was very warm and welcoming. It is a very neat and comfortable room. One of the main benefits was that it was a downstairs room that remained cool and you did not have to climb numerous stairs to access the room. The subway into Manhattan was only two blocks away and was a direct line into the city.
The Waverly was the perfect place for my adult son and I to stay while visiting Pratt Institute and exploring Brooklyn and Mahattan over five days. The studio was cool place to return to after a hot day of exploration of the city. We had all the comforts of a more expensive hotel room, with the added bonus of feeling like we were part of a very nice community. Alli and her son were great host, very hospitable, informative and very respectable of our privacy. I would stay at the Waverly again.
Great place, quiet, close to the subwayif you wanna go to manhattan and in the center of one of the most beautiful architectural places in Brooklyn. Safe and close to one of the most beautiful nightviews from Manhattan (Peer 1 at the brooklyn peer park) Dumbo, etc...
Alli was also a great hostess! she and her Family made me feel like at home in NY.
great place I'll recommend to everyone who wanna stay in NY.
Myself, my partner and our two little ones from Australia stayed with Alli in Fort Greene/Clinton Hill for 9 nights in April. Everything about the stay was awesome.
Our host was a brilliant host who went out of her way with all the little touches (eg. home made cookies to greet us) and was a lovely, lovely person to stay with. Very helpful, very kind.
The room was fantastic. Very clean, very cosy, beautifully decorated and lots of room to spread out for our small family.
The area was awesome. The apartment is in a lovely, quiet street. Very convenient to everything (several subway options within a 5 minute walk), the best flea market I've ever experienced (literally around the corner on a Saturday) and loads of restaurant options just around the corner.
Highly recommended. If we get to New York again, we'll definitely be looking to stay here again!
Our host was a very welcoming host and provided everything we needed, as well as offering help on how to get around the city etc.
The studio space was lovely and clean, with plenty of space, and the subway is just a short walk away.
We had an excellent stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
