Suzanne's place is definitely small, but cute, and in a beautiful neighborhood. Plus Suzanne is a great host!
Overall our experience with Suzanne was great! We had some difficulty getting the keys initially but Suzanne did a great job of communicating with us and coordinating when to meet up. Her apartment is in a great location in Brooklyn... Super artsy and fun! I would definitely stay here again.
The room is wonderful and the bed is really comfy! Location of the house is close to metro and hence easily accesible. Suzanne was also a very good host! She was very accomodating and answer all our queries even if its late at night! Highly recommended(:
About the Host, Suzanne
Hi, I am a quiet and friendly individual interested in sharing my space in this great neighborhood. My place is clean and cozy. I have musical instruments but can coordinate practice so as not to interfere with quiet time.
I am out most of the day and some evenings at work. I speak English and Spanish.
