Alex was very helpful and nice but for us the place was a initially a great disappointment, mainly because we misunderstood the term loft that for me is the top floor. (the apartment was on a noisy ground floor) The pictures of the terrace added to that misunderstanding.
The bedroom was very small for three beds (me and my two almost grown up kids wanted separated beds) but for two people in a double bed and one in a single bed it should be ok.
The place was clean and we could use the living room area as well for storage and to stay. Nice bath room.
The systems with three keys to tree locks where two was hard to open was less than optimal.
The air conditioner was noisy - but actually helped to disguise the noise from the street.
Alex did everything she could to help us, and we were able to keep our luggage until late next day.
The room has so much space and would be perfect for groups of four. Alex is a very down to earth, kind person. Would recommend this place, it is the best location in brooklyn, right beside Bedford Subway, which zooms into Manhattan in 5 mins.
Some great bars and restaurants round the corner as well.
One of the coolest places I've stayed at! So much space and in a very cool neighbourhood.. You can walk everywhere with lots of great shops. The host was so accommodating for me! It was a last minute booking and it went very smoothly - would definitely recommend!
Un super séjour! Le logement est idéalement situé à Brooklyn, à la fois proche du métro qui mène à Manathan en 10 mn, dans un quartier très vivant le soir et tout près d'un parc prisé par les New-yorkais pour la promenade et le sport. Cerise sur le gâteau: il est au calme.
Après un petit loupé au démarrage, Alex n'étant pas dispo tout de suite pour nous accueillir, elle nous a consacré sa soirée du lendemain pour nous donner des éléments de visite et conseils. Puis nous a envoyé régulièrement des petits messages très sympas.
Nous n'avons qu'une envie: revenir.
We have just returned from a week at Alex's ground floor appartment in Brooklyn .
Communication works well with Alex.
The appartmnet is clean and bedding is clean and fresh , with enough towels ect....there were not many knives forks or plates , if you wanted to eat in (but Alex said she was more than happy to get some in if required)
Location is great , 2 min walk to the L line metro .... And to the ferry (5-8 min walk) that takes you wither directly over to Manhattan , or on a trip down towards to wall at area under the Williamsburg , Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges .
All in all a great location for a NY experience .
Alex was super friendly and respectful. She made our group feel welcomed at home. Her loft was cozy, well decorated and in a very convenient and walkable location. I will surely consider her again for my next BK visit.
Alex and her loft were great! If you're really after the "quintessential Williamsburg experience," look no further. Her loft is really cool, great location to everywhere you want to go in the neighborhood, and she is a great host--always with suggestions for what to check out. She knows Williamsburg well-- having been there for almost 20 years, she truly was there "before it was cool."
