June was wonderfully welcoming. The room was just what I was looking for: a simple, affordable place to rest my head. Great neighborhood.
Perfect spot for a traveller like myself- June is a gracious and accommodating hostess as she allowed me to store my luggage on my first day in and last day out do I could explore the city until I checked in. She also arranged taxi service to LaGuardia for me. The room is small but comfortable and the bathroom is communal. The location couldn't be better for the adventurous food lover as Marlow and sons is a few blocks away and other great spots are close by. Also the M train to Manhattan is a short walk. My new go to for accommodations when I slip into NYC for a weekend
Really nice host! Flexible and obliging. Everything was as described. Area really safe with a lot of bars and restaurants within walking distance.
Great place to stay and June was very accommodating. The room is as expected for price but it is warm and cozy. Great if you don't need much space. Williamsburg is awesome and there are plenty of bars and cafes around Bedford avenue. I would stay here again
June was the greatest host, she took care of everything and was very informativ and a good communicator. Felt safe and home at her place. The neighborhood was close to Bedford ave and Marcy ave subway which made several opertunities getting to a and from the place, bedford ave which is 1 block away is very cool.
we had great time at Vincent place! His mother June was a wonderful host, friendly and too helpful.
The room is small, but you know it reading the Airbnb description so no unpleasant surprise!
the room, the bathroom and the apartment was very clean.
The apartment is in the middle of Williamsburg: very close to restaurant and bar in Bedford Av.
what can I say: cheap, clean and close to nightlife... one of the best choise I made on Airbnb!
This space is perfect for anyone looking to use the apartment as their base to explore Williamsburg and surrounding Brooklyn neighbourhoods. Its super close to a tonne of shops, bars, restaurants and music venues as well as several subway stations. The rooms are small but clean and equipped with everything you need (mini fridge, plasma TV and a microwave). I had a great stay here and would definitely go back.
