About this listing
This is a fully renovated basement room. Do not book if you have a problem with basements. Not suitable for people taller than 6 feet.
The house is located in Brooklyn only one block away from the subway and 18 minutes away from Manhattan. It features a Queen-size bed that can accommodate 2 people. The house has just been entirely renovated with modern kitchen appliances, bathrooms and furniture. Free WiFi and laundry are available on the premises. There is a plethora of shops and grocery stores in the area. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen and the back yard free of any charge. Free street parking and laundry facility are available too.
As of me, I am European and rather curious about almost every culture there is under the sun. I am an easy-going and very friendly host. My goal is to provide a private, safe, clean, convenient, inexpensive and comfortable accommodation for adventurous travelers from around the world or local people in need of temporary furnished housing. I am available when needed but I do not intrude on my guests. I never cancel reservations unless a force of nature forces me to do so as I do not want my guests to rearrange their plans last minute.
No smoking, no drugs, no open fires, no pets, no children under 7.
Ivo (our host,) provided easy directions and instructions on how to get into, and where to find our room. The pictures are totally accurate, we had a small private bedroom in the basement, which was great in the summer, as it was so cool downstairs.
It is a very basic room, a perfect place to come sleep and get ready in the morning.
The kitchen had everything we needed, and was always clean, the bathroom was great, good pressure and temp on the shower.
The neighborhood seems a little rough at first, I imagine some visitors may be intimidated, NO NEED! Everyone was super nice, hanging out outside on the stoops and always a friendly smile and "how are you." I only wish my neighborhood at home was so friendly.
Very convenient access to the AC and JZ subway lines; the AC directly to downtown Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Bridge and lower Manhattan, and the JZ straight to Williamsburg and middle manhattan/canal street area.
Easy access to grocery and deli's in the area.
Ivo was super nice, we met him on the 3rd or 4th day, and had a great long conversation. He was very helpful and generous with his rooms and even offering us free access to the museums and cheap car service!
We will definitely be looking to stay here again if we get the opportunity to come back!
We spent few days at Ivo´s place. We didn´t see him in person, but there was no problem to communicate with him quicky via emails. The room looks like at the photos. House is near the metro which takes you to the Manhattan. The only little problem was neighborhood - we don´t feel much safe and there were some loud parties during two nights. Nevertheless we enjoyed our stay and it´s a good deal for a little money.
We Gad never met Ivo, which for us is more a business than a host Man, what I find unfortunate. For the price, we can be satisfied with this room, which was very wet, not really clean and very spartan. public areas are functional but dirty as some other guests were not aware they were not alone in using them. Metro is very close which is a good point even if it takes 45 min transport to reach Times Square. we stay on our hunger with this room and certainly not return
La chambre est très humide. Les transports sont assez proches. Il ne faut pas avoir peur des insectes. Et la chambre est au sous sol donc le toit est assez bas. Je le recommande pour une très courte durée.
The place was clean, comfortable, has everything you may expect, kitchen was equipped well. You can freely use,wifi is strong, near public transportation, Easy to reach.
As always Ivo was friendly respose for his guests
The place is recommended highly from me.
Thanx again Ivo
Quartier très sympa et musical, on ne s'y ennuie pas. Le papi du voisinage vous dira toujours un petit mot quand il vous voit passer. Bref ! Si j'y repars je sais ou me loger !
Le logement à tous les équipements nécessaires : cuisine et salle de bain + machine à laver et sèche linge pro ce qui fait que l'on peut rentrer sans avoir des vetements sales dans nos bagages.
Ivo n'était pas dans le logement quand nous sommes venues mais nous avons eu un problème de clé et il l'a solutionné en 5min par réponse mail.
La maison est à 5min du métro ligne C (celle que vous prendrez le plus souvent car plus pratique et nous vous trompez pas avec la 3 qui est a 45min de marche pour le même nom) qui dessert tout Manhattan.
En clair logement parfait pour qui souhaite voyager pas cher et dans le coeur de Brooklyn.
Manque juste un peu d'équipements dans la chambre comme des cintres, table de chevet pour ne pas se relever voir une autre chaise pour le linge.
