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! :)
Boris and Paola's apartment was pretty much what we expected from the description and photos on their listing. We had the whole upstairs to ourselves, which did give a bit more privacy than other rentals offer. Our luggage didn't fit in the bedroom (the room is VERY tight) but we could keep our belongings in the hall between the bedroom and bathroom. The neighborhood felt safe and the apartment is a quick walk to the G train to Manhattan. Our only major complaint was that the bed was extremely firm (I'm surprised none of the other reviews mentioned this) and it did not provide for a comfortable nights sleep. However, considering the prices of hotels and even the other Air BnB listings I saw, it was a great value.
Boris and Paola were amazing hosts! They were very attentive and really cared about making us feel comfortable. They were happy to share all the local spots we should check out and really made us feel like we were staying with friends. Love their kitties too! Thank you, Boris and Paola for making our stay in NY great!
Paola hat uns, obwohl es schon spät war als wir ankamen, sehr nett begrüßt und uns alles gezeigt und erklärt. Das Zimmer, sowie das Badezimmer befinden sich im ersten Stock den man ganz allein bewohnt. Beides war sauber, jedoch etwas kleiner als wir uns vorgestellt haben. Der Weg zur U-Bahn dauert 5 Minuten und nach Manhatten muss man nur einmal umsteigen. Insegsamt haben wir uns super zurecht gefunden und uns sicher in der Gegend gefühlt. Leider haben wir Boris nie kennengelernt und Paola nach der Begrüßung auch nicht wieder gesehen. Sie sind sehr leise und rücksichtsvolle Gastgeber und ein Aufenthalt bei ihnen ist empfehlenswert!
The accommodation served my husband well during his stay in Brooklyn.
The reservation was canceled 23 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Boris and Paula were nice and friendly host, very discreet and calm. They give me some good tips for restaurants and bars.
The neighbourhood is rather calm and safe. The subway station is just 10 min walk.
The bedroom and bathroom were clean. It was really nice to have your own space.
Cons: The room was quite smaller as shown in the pictures, moving around in the bedroom is very tight. During my stay there, the kitchen was particularly dirty and the sink was always overloaded with dishes, so I actually never felt like cooking there. The room was a bit cold at night so I asked for a thicker blanket/duvet. Boris gave me a warm feather duvet but it was rather dirty.
It was in any case a good experience.
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.
