Interaction with Guests
based on mutual interests :)
It's historical, quiet - good place to retreat to after a day of Manhattan! It's close to all places in the city
Quite a few trains and buses!
Other Things to Note
We have two friendly, curious and energetic cats, Xuxa and Vasya. Hope you're cool with animals! :)
It was great staying here - Boris and Paula were friendly - for instance Boris gave us restaurant recommendations for our first night in the city but we didn't see much of each other after that.
The apartment had a balcony that was great in the sunshine and having your own bedroom and bathroom on the upper level means that you feel like you have your own space within the apartment.
Location-wise, the places is a thirty minute walk to the best bits of Brooklyn and a couple of subway trains away from Manhattan.
Boris and Paola were very welcoming. Their place is awesome and their cats were so sweet! The subway station is closeby the house so that was good too!
The loft is so special! We both like the cats and the old piano in the house. Boris and Paola are very nice and easy-going. We had a great time in their house.
My girlfriend and I stayed with Boris and Paola for five nights, they provided everything we needed and the second floor of the apartment was entirely for us.
The apt and the bedroom are exactly as they are shown in the pictures. The location is not perfect but it is located two blocks away from the subway, so you can get everywhere from there.
They are great people and will be contacting them without any doubt the next time I go to NYC.
The place was great, Boris and Paola were both very nice. The neighbourhood is rather calm and the apartment is close to several subway stations so you can easily move anywhere you want. We highly recommend it! If we have the opportunity to go back to NYC we would be glad to book for this place again!
Der Aufenthalt bei Paola und Boris war super und ist auf jeden Fall weiterzuempfehlen :)
Das Zimmer und Bad war sehr sauber allerdings etwas kleiner als wir uns das vorgestellt haben.
Die Küche und sämtliche Küchenutensilien durften wir verwenden was für uns ein riesen Vorteil war! Die Gegend an sich empfanden wir als sicher!
Boris und Paola waren sehr sehr hilfsbereit und super nett und zuvorkommend, und gaben uns auch viele Tipps zu New York :)
Was das Parken des Autos betrifft gab es auch keine Probleme! Es gab in der Straße immer einen Parkplatz! Man muss allerdings berücksichtigen dass mehrmals in der Woche eine Straßenreinigung kommt und man deshalb das Auto umparken muss!
Die ubahn ist ca 5 min zu Fuß entfernt! Wenn man direkt nach New York möchte muss man 1x umsteigen! (Fahrtdauer ca 25 min)
Die Verbindung ist super ! Empfehlenswert ist es auf jeden Fall sich einen ubahn plan zuzulegen. Desweiteren würde ich empfehlen sich ein wochenticket für 30$ zu kaufen (ubahn + Bus frei).
Ein Geheimtipp ist noch der Stadtteil williamsburg direkt in Brooklyn ;)
We had a great week in New York staying at Boris & Paola's apartment. It was really nice having our own floor which often made it feel like we had our own space. The room is small however it was fine as we spent all day exploring New York and only came back to sleep anyway. Because you have the whole floor, you can utilise the space outside the room for bags, shopping etc which was great. Having our own bathroom was fantastic as well. Although we didn't see them very often, they were lovely hosts and quick the respond to any questions we had. The apartment is close to a subway, however keep in mind that it is 2 separate lines from Manhattan. However, the surrounding Brooklyn area is very interesting as well. Overall a great small Brooklyn space, with easy access to public transport and good cafés. Additionally their two cats are really cute.
