Do not leave the heater or the air conditioner running when you are not in the apartment.
The flat is exactly as shown by the pictures. The bathroom and the kitchen are small but there's anything you may need. The house is very clean and close to the metro stations. Neighbourhood is simply amazing and very safe.
Maura's place was perfect! A great location, clean, good amount of space and a wonderful kind-sized bed. The pad was perfectly located in middle of Park Slope, with endless bars and restaurants to walk to. I'll definitely be back!
Consider this only if you need a budget option for lodging. Very little has been done to make the visitor feel at home.
Pros: The location is within walking distance of several subway stops. There are good options for dining in the vicinity. The linens were clean. The king-sized bed was comfortable. The air-conditioning worked well. The refrigerator was clean. The price is low.
Cons: Maura, the host, is hard to reach. (As one of the previous reviews indicated: it's more effective to call her home number, as she didn't respond to emails or texts.) Once reached, her manner is very unpleasant and brusque. Though there were a number of extra sheets in the apartment, none of them actually fit the futon! The wireless is VERY spotty. The bathroom is tiny and a bit dingy, as others have noted. The cable TV did not work.
Location is great: you can walk 200 mt and get the bus 63 to metro station or walk 0,8 km and get the R subway to Manhattan (just 30 min ride). Park Slope is really a nice place: nice people, nice places.
The apartment is little but everything is ok. I found it little provided of glasses, but it can be a personal opinion, and we have a problem with the table that is unsteady. We had a problem with the internet: we could access the wifi network but not browser the internet through it. I wrote Maura some messages but we couldn’t fix it. Such a pity, cause we expected to use it.
Nice little apartment, clean, nice neighbourhood with everything you need nearby
L'entrée dans les lieux se fait facilement (clé dans la box à code).
Appartement conforme à notre attente exceptée la salle de bain. Lave-mains et non lavabo (pas pratique pour se laver les dents), aucune étagère (où poser ses affaires de toilettes ?). Le lit (180 cm de large) est plus grand que la salle de bain (-:
La cuisine est très mal équipée (peu de casseroles et peu de couverts).
Le grille pain défectueux a été remplacé dans la journée (merci). Quartier calme et agréable avec commerçants à proximité (même pour les consommateurs BIO).
This small studio is close to many restaurants, shops, and bars as well as train stations. It is in a safe neighborhood, and I felt safe walking around at night.
The place itself was clean enough. The bathroom is kind of dingy, but not terrible. Also, the Wi-Fi signal here is pretty weak, but there are plenty of nearby cafes where you can bring your laptop.
Maura is best reached by calling her. I had a difficult time initially getting a hold of her via email and text messages.
