Firo and Maria are very nice people. We really have a very nice three-days there. The room is cozy and clean. And the neighbor is very quiet.
Porfirio and Maria were wonderful. They welcomed me with much kindness. I arrived some hours before the scheduled check in, but Porfirio and Maria let me check in in advance. You can park for free just before their building in Brooklyn. Thank you Maria and Porfirio !
The family was very nice and welcoming without being the least bit intrusive. The room is quite spacious with a closet, mini-refrigerator, computer and desk, as well as a window a/c unit, which I needed since I was there in August. I was a tad leery about sharing an apartment but, again, Portirio and Firo were not the least bit intrusive. Lovely stay.
While the room was very simple, it was also very clean - which was the most important thing for us. We only spent one night, but our stay was comfortable. The hosts were very nice and polite.
I was so nervous about going to New York for the first time by myself, but Maria and Firo made me feel so at home and on such short notice. I booked a stay with them the morning of my flight because my prior arrangements fell thorough and they were so quick to respond. I really believe that they made my whole trip. The room was great and they were the best hosts, and if I don't have a place booked for my next adventure to New York they'll be first on my list! It was overall such a great experience and stay with them. I highly recommend Maria and Firo to everyone(:
Firo and Maria were a good hosts , friendly and flexible, family atmosphere. The room was clean and large at 5 minutes from the subway . The neighborhood is safe and quiet .
