  • It was my first time to be in New York and the room was excellent. The flat and room were so clean and comfortable. Location of the flat is very convenient to go to Time Square with Q and B trains. Denise and Emmie are great people. I felt that I was in my home during my staying there. Brooklyn is also very good place to stay because of visiting many famous places such as Brooklyn Museum, Prospect Park and Botanic Garden.

    I can only say a negative thing about the room that neighbors are a little bit noisy Overall, I strongly recommend Denise and Emmie's place.

  • We spent one night here and enjoyed our stay. The room and bed were both comfortable and Emmie and Denise were very kind. The room is close to a subway line, which made staying here convenient for exploring other areas. Overall, we enjoyed our brief stay and can recommend this room to others.

  • My boyfriend and I stayed with Denise and Emmie for six nights. It was our first time going through Airbnb and it couldn't have gone better.
    Check in with the lock box was quick and easy, so we didn't have to worry about our arrival time.
    The room is perfect for two, the bed super comfy and the whole apartment is immaculately clean. And the subway really couldn't be closer! Literally only a few steps away!
    We only bumped into our hosts a few times coming home at night, but they were very welcoming and sweet. We didn't even notice them getting ready for work in the mornings, they're so quiet :)
    All in all it was a great first Airbnb experience, and the best alternative to a hostel or hotel!

  • **English version**

    It was my first experience with airbnb and it's not the last time I will use it.
    I only met Emmie when I arrived but it was only for one night during the weekend. So it was not really to meet us.

    Accomodation:
    The bedroom is really nice, not small even if you stay few nights. There are one window on the street but it was not a problem, I slept like a baby. The bathroom is near your room and the size is correct.
    You can use the kitchen to cook something or just drink and you have the leaving room with two sofa. The accommodation was clean.
    About the transportation it's really easy to go in Manhattan, it's direct via the line Q and the station only 3/5 min by walking from accommodation.

    I recommend this room for the price/ place for few nights.

    **version Française **
    Je recommande vivement ce logement pour vos visites à New York.
    Vous avez la station de métro a 3/5 min de l’’appartement il suffit de prendre une petit rue, vraiment très facile. Vous êtes en direct pour aller sur l’ile de Manhattan en direction de Time Square, ce qui est très pratique. Certes il faut compter 25 min je dirais mais c’est car le métro New Yorkais est très lent
    L’appartement :
    La chambre est suffisant grande pour rester a deux pendant plusieurs nuits. Il y a une armoire à disposition avec quelques cintres. Dans la chambre, vous avez une fenêtre qui donne sur rue mais je n’ai pas trouvé cette rue particulièrement bruyante sachant que c’était un samedi soir. La propreté de l’appartement est normale comme si vous veniez de faire le ménage chez vous, c’est-à-dire que cela ne brille pas partout mais c’est vraiment très correct. La salle de bain est un peu petite puisque les wc y sont inclus mais il s’agit d’une douche baignoire donc de très bon format. Le salon et la cuisine sont accessible et très bien. Je pense que pour New York cet appartement est de très bonnes tailles.
    Je n’ai rencontré que Emmie, étant arrive le samedi en fin de matinée et partie dimanche dans l’après-midi. Ce n’est pas évident de se croiser aux même horaires.
    Pour les personnes seules, le quartier n’est pas du tout in sécuritaire, j’étais seule durant tout le weekend.

  • We stayed only for one night, but it was a great experience!

    Denise and Emmie are wonderful and very friendly, room is nice and clean, bed is super comfortable and it's right next to subway. If there was any noise during the night, it didn't bother us at all.

    We highly recommend this place!

  • Super hospitable, clean and cute apartment, and super comfortable bed. As my first AirBnB experience I'm now hooked. So much better than hotels. Denise and Emmie nailed it!

  • Beautiful, warm people. Location was exactly what we were looking for. Gorgeous, immaculately clean, reasonably priced place with a soft bed. What else is needed? 5-stars!

  • Denise and Emmie were fantastic hosts! We stayed during Memorial Day weekend, granted it was my first time to use Airbnb, I was pleasantly surprised at how clean and welcoming the room was! Soft bed, a fan to keep you cool, towels and books about the city were a great addition.

    They were very helpful in terms of which subway trains to take and although we didn't see them that much, their place felt like home :)

    Overall its a great place to stay if you're planning on visiting New York anytime soon. Their apartment is literally steps away from the subway and restaurants so you wouldn't find it hard to locate transportation and food (there are also corner stores and delis with ATMs)

    I definitely recommend staying here! I might come back next year and stay with them again :)

  • The listing was everything and more than one could want when visiting New York, very close to the subway and a cheap ride to the LGA airport.
    Denise and Emmie are very accommodating and were happy to suggest a number of places to visit while I was in town.

    May 2014
  • My stay at Denise and Emmie's place was wonderful! Although I was just staying for one night, they welcomed me into their apartment and their neighborhood like a good friend. The apartment was very clean, check-in was easy with a lock box, and the bed was comfortable. If you stay here, be sure to explore Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. Also, for a taste of local culture, Flatbush Avenue is great to explore. I've only been back for a day, and I already want to go back; and when I do, I wouldn't hesitate to stay with Denise and Emmie again.
