It was a wonderful time ! We enjoyed every single day. It was simply amazing ! We are very grateful for the hospitality and the kindness of Tee and the Greene Av neighborhood. We feel the soul of Brooklyn thanks to them. Tee was always ready to help calling a cab or giving informations about Brooklyn
Nice place And a friendly welcome !
However, cutlery And things in The cupboard a bit sticky...
Beds are confortable And big bedrooms.
There is a church close to The flat with concert every evening from 7 to 9 am... So Not very quiet place if you don't like music buy pleasant for whom does.
The neighbourrhood is very lively saturday night...
Very easy to The Subway (10/15 mn walking) And laundry And Market close too.
We had an electrical problem during a few Hours, ( no electricity AT all, impossible to have a shower, have diner And AC) so before Booking, make sure that The entire electrical panel had been replaced...
TEE est une personne très agréable et très accueillante. Merci pour son accueil!!!
La location est assez bien située par rapport au transport (10 minutes à pied). L'appartement est correct mais il fait vraiment très chaud sous les toits. La climatisation fait beaucoup de bruit dans les chambres mais elle est obligatoire. Il manque la climatisation ou au moins un ventilateur dans le salon/ cuisine ( il fait vraiment très chaud). La literie est bonne.
Efter att ha bott 1 månad i lägenheten är vi jättenöjda. Säkert område. 10 minuter promenad till J-Z som sen tar en in till manhattan på 20 min . Trevlig och hjälpsam värd . Vi är jättenöjda / Joel :-)
WE have a great time in tee s apartment . safe area , 10 min walk to the subway then 20 and you are in Manhattan . tee good person
If we came back we will stay enhers apartment :-)
Были в Нью-Йорке с 2 по 7 июня 2015. Хозяйка квартиры добрая и отзывчивая. Район тихий и спокойный. Иногда ездят пожарные машины с громкой сиреной, но это во всем Нью-Йорке. Квартира рассчитана на бюджетного туриста, соответствует стоимости. Из минусов - к интернету можно было подключить только одно устройство. Плита газовая, на кухне нету вентиляции и если готовить еду - очень жарко. Рядом есть небольшие магазины и недалеко метро.
В целом могу рекомендовать квартиру для бюджетного туриста.
Tee nous a accueillies très gentiment et nous a fait visiter l'appartement. Il était possible de la contacter en cas de besoin car elle habite dans le même immeuble.
L'appartement est à 5 min à pied du métro J (facile d'accès à partir de l'aéroport) et à 20min de chinatown.
Il y a de petites supérettes autour. Le quartier , qui est populaire, était tranquille ce qui nous a permis de très bien dormir la nuit. Par ailleurs, la literie était de bonne qualité. Les chambres sont pourvues de climatiseurs (un peu bruyants) indispensables en cas de grosse chaleur. Il y avait le nécessaire dans la cuisine (sel, poivre, huile, sucre, différents cafés, thés...) et tous les ustensiles pour éventuellement cuisiner. Nous étions 4 filles et nous nous sommes senties en sécurité, nous étions vigilantes comme à Paris.
Je recommande ce logement qui a un très bon rapport qualité/prix.
Tee was nice and very friendly landlord. We spent here a week. The accommodation was exactly what we expected from the photos. It was clean and tidy. The apartment had everything we needed. The neighbourhood was safe and nice. People there are really friendly. It's about 10 mins to the nearest subway station and then half an hour to Manhattan by train. At the Myrtle subway station there is a supermarket, laundry and few fastfoods. Thank you for a nice stay in New York.
