I'm the first owner of this gorgeous 650 sq ft condo apartment. A steel factory converted into condos several years ago. Many of the original building structures are preserved. The space includes high ceilings, a full bathroom (with a great deep tub), a large kitchen with an island/bar (all brand new appliances: dishwasher, espresso/coffee machine, blender, etc), a laundry closet with washer/dryer, and the rest of the space is divided into the bedroom and living room. The living room has an exposed brick wall, on which is a mounted flat screen Smart TV. The view is of the Williamsburg Bridge and the Domino Sugar Factory. I have electric blinds that completely block the sunlight from coming through the floor to ceiling windows if you want to sleep in. A queen size bed plus a couch accommodates up to 3.
Williamsburg is an amazingly vibrant neighborhood with many bars, restaurants, art galleries, shops, yoga studios, etc. The apt is 8 blocks from the L train (Bedford Ave) which is 1 stop away from Manhattan (14th St &1st Ave). The L train connects to an array of trains as it runs east/west on 14th street. Alternatively, if you are heading downtown (the Village, SoHo, Financial District, LES, etc.) a cab ride is anywhere from $10-$15 since the apt is very close to the Williamsburg bridge. Its incredibly easy to hail a cab on the corner since the intersecting street is the way traffic goes to get back on Williamsburg bridge. However, my block is very quiet.
This is my home and I would kindly ask you treat it with care. Please communicate with me prior to booking the place, I'm very open and will try to accommodate you in any way I can.
I also have a locked storage unit where you can leave your suitcases if you wanted to store your luggage after/before check-out.
Prices have increased for 2014 since the income I receive from AirBnB is now taxed.
This was a truly wonderful place. Ideally located in the heart of Williamsburg (but just off the beaten track, so no worries about noise), the apartment is in a newly, and beautifully renovated condo complex. The apartment itself was beautiful, immaculate, and very cozy. The area is wonderful: there are more bars and restaurants within a very short walking distance than you could ever reasonably desire. A great cinema, where you can eat and have a drink while watching a movie, is right around the corner.
I never got to meet Magdalena, but communication with her was invariably very quick. What can I say? A great airbnb experience. I really hope to stay here again when I am next in NYC,
My husband and I stayed in Magda's apartment for one night. Magda was prompt and courteous in her communications with us. The apartment was fantastic - clean and comfortable. Also, my husband left his glasses after we checked out and Magda was very gracious in allowing us to retrieve them later that day.
A fabulous SECOND stay at Magdalena's! My husband stayed here in June (be sure to read that review) while visiting our daughter, and my August visit was equally pleasant. With our daughter subletting just a few blocks away, Jeff and I hope Magdalena's place can be our go-to weekend bnb for many future visits!
Host and organisation for change over were second to none, and made our stay in a great part of town extremely enjoyable !
Magda's apartment could not be better located in Williamsburg! You are walking distance to everything. The apartment itself is beautiful, really well designed, and fitted out, amazing kitchen, and super quiet at night. Would highly recommend.
Magda's place is spotless and really gorgeous! It is situated perfectly to explore everything in Williamsburg. She is a wonderful host and very easy to communicate with.
Magdalena is a great host with a wonderful apartment. Easy in, easy out, comfortable stay. Definitely recommended!!!
My stay at Magdalena's space was short but perfect for my trip! She was very responsive, and was able to accommodate my last minute request. Upon my arrival it was a wonderful relief to be able to get FREE street parking just steps from her door! She made the check in process easy as well. Her home is VERY clean, comfortable, and well designed. The neighborhood was quiet and had plenty of places to eat and window shop too. I definitely recommend this space for your future trips to Brooklyn!
Magda's lovely place was super clean and in a great location. She was a fantastic host, and made the check in/out process really easy. Would stay again.
Magdalena is a fabulous host. Her studio is gorgeous, modern, clean and comfortable with high ceilings, a full bathroom, large kitchen and new appliances. The living room has an exposed brick wall with an amazing flat screen TV. You will LOVE the view of the Williamsburg Bridge and the rooftop patio! Communication with Magdalena was extremely quick and easy. And check-in, check-out was a breeze. In the summer heat, the AC is a wonderful bonus, as well as the washer and dryer for visitors who are staying longer than a weekend. The neighborhood is safe, and it's an easy walk to both the L and the JMZ. Gina is going to Williamsburg in August, and so sad the studio isn't available the weekend she needs it, because it's absolutely perfect in every way!
