Il Palazzo, der Palast, the Mahal

Apartment - Private room · Stuyvesant Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11233, United States

The Space

Il Palazzo is located on a tree lined street of a Brown/Limestone Block.
The spaces you sleep in are a beautiful alcove located off the living room with a window and curtains you can draw to make a caravan feel and a separate bedroom with a sleigh bed. A small, child-sized floor mattress is available for those traveling with children. The entire apartment is full of architectural details from the 1930s.
Breakfast can be provided, organic granola with milk/non dairy alternative, fruit, bread or bagels. There is also coffee from the Park Slope Food Co-Op and a French Press for you to use at your leisure and an extensive tea selection. Please let us know in advance if you will be having breakfast here because we don't want to waste food if you plan on enjoying one of the many delightful brunch options in the neighborhood!
The space is shared with me and my roommate Rachel who is an actress and often is traveling for gigs, our rooms are at the back of the apartment. We have a dog each. Pina is my dog and weighs in at 6lbs. Pup is Rachel's who has traveled with her for eleven years since they met in New Mexico.
The apartment is at the top of the building on the fourth floor and is a walk up, this will insure you keep your exercise regime and not get in trouble with your trainer when you return home. We are happy to help you with your bags. It is equipped with wifi and a netflix account for you to use at your leisure.

Guest Access

Guests have access to the main living area, the dining room, the shared bathroom and the kitchen.

Interaction with Guests

We are usually around (either myself or Rachel) and love to chit chat with our guests. One the things we love about AirBnb is getting to meet people from all over the world and learn about their lives!

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood, Bed-Stuy, is the best! People make eye contact and greet you when you walk the streets. The best Italian Restaurant, Saraghina, in Brooklyn is one block away. Georges Andre, a sweet little coffee shop with amazing vintage furniture is less than a block away, they have delicious coffee and pastries. Bread Love, our local bakery, small grocery, and coffee shop, is about five blocks away and is a great place to pick up breakfast, lunch or dinner on the way home from a busy day of sightseeing. They now serve dinner Monday-Friday from 4-8pm and brunch on Saturday and Sunday! Small organic grocery store on the corner.

Getting around

The Utica A/C train is six short blocks or about five long legged minutes away. The A train connects with the air train from JFK at Howard Beach and gets you to Il Palazzo in forty minutes. You can reach Times Square in thirty five minutes and catch a movie or show at The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) in twenty minutes. Check out BAM's amazing lineup for Winter/Spring 2014!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Hannah was a super host! She was welcoming, accommodating, and easy to communicate with. She took our reservation last minute and got us settled in no time. Her friends were just as welcoming and interesting Lots of stories and baked goods were shared in our short stay! I would definitely recommend staying at Hannah's if you have the chance.

  • Definitely an amazing place to stay in the heart of Brooklyn! We have been warmly welcome by Hannah and her room mate! Spacious and comfortable. We were 2 couples and we feel like home. My friend and my girlfriend did enjoy their stay. There's a nice basket with organic food in the fridge for breakfast. It was nice and quiet! The two dogs are just really funny and nice! Hope to have more time to spend there next time! Plenty of parking.

  • We had a wonderful stay at the Palace.The hosts are simply lovely. And very accommodating and hospitable. I needed the place last minute (i contacted them the same evening i checked in) and they responded quickly and making sure we could check in effortlessly.

    The space is huge. I had booked the entire palace - which includes a master bedroom, a large living room with four large windows and an alcove. You literally will wake up to a stream of sunlight. The living room has a beautiful alcove that has a bed that my friend slept on. There was a nice shelf of books to do some bed time reading. And we really liked how the hosts had provided a tray neatly packed with toiletries.

    The other end of the living room leads in to the main bedroom that has a king size bed with a super comfortable mattress. The room also had a big closet for us to keep our bags. Between the master bedroom, the living room and the alcove, we truly had more space than we are used to when visiting New York City. But that was not all - the entire apartment is much larger which includes a long passageway running along additional bedrooms and has a living room sized dining area and kitchen. So there was plenty of space for us to just chill.

    The stay was all the more pleasant for the hosts were very gracious and had made delicious peanut butter cookies for us!! And they were totally okay with us digging into the food in the fridge or getting huge helpings of home-made granola or enjoying their selection of more than a dozen variety of teas.

    Needless to say we had a wonderful stay. Me and my friend were just looking for a clean place to stay for a night. But we left feeling more than rejuvenated and with promises to return soon to our new friends in the palace.
