Karen was a great host, she was there to let us into the apartment even though we arrived quite early in the morning. She gave us the key and answered any questions we had about the apartment or the neighborhood.
We stayed for four nights and there were absolutely no problems. It was such a nice sanctuary to come back to after spending a day exploring Manhattan. The WiFi did drop a couple of times but nothing a little bit of tinkering around with couldn't fix.
It's about an 8 - 10 minute walk from either subway station and the bar next door was a lot of fun if you didn't fancy venturing too far for a bit of socializing. And, the bagel shop on the corner has delicious bagels and a very long menu.
Karen was fantastic. I'd highly recommend staying with her.
Första gången jag använde airbnb,vilket fungerade väl.
Karen fanns på plats då vi kom,sedan såg vi inte mycket av henne.
Internet fungerade ej i två dagar,i övrigt inga klagomål.
Sjysst lgh,bra rum,kanonläge i Williamsburgh =)
Met Karen briefly--very helpful in getting us settled in, and then she was off for the weekend. We had no issue getting in touch with her before or during our stay via text message. Her other short-term renter was only around in the evenings and was super quiet. Parking was easy and free, wifi worked great, really nice location in Williamsburg.
This apt is in a great accessible location. There is a market just a couple of blocks away where you can purchase fresh organic fruits and veggies plus any toiletries you may need for your trip. There are also bodegas, and of course plenty of restaurants and bars.
The apartment was very cute and Karen was great! She let me know right away that the wifi was down but she was working to get it fixed. Later that evening when we returned to the apt, the internet was back up! I didn't see Karen at all after the first day but ran into her roommate, who was also very nice!
The room itself was comfortable and clean (a little dusty, but this New York!). Would definitely stay again!
I really enjoyed my stay in Williamsburg. The place is in a great location. Karen's roommate was super helpful and let us in in the middle of the night after our flight was delayed. The room was pretty hot as it was in the middle of summer, but we managed to borrow a fan from the living room so it wasn't that big of an issue.
The only thing that was good about this place was it's closeness to Manhattan, and it's because the place is located in a really cool neighborhood. Here are the things that did not work as I expected, compared to my other Airbnb experiences I have had:
1) The communication with the host was really bad. I was never able to reach her by phone when I had a question or when there was an issue. She would only respond to text messages, and that took here more than a day in most cases. She was not even there when I was there so I would expect a host to respond to my calls/messages within a fair amount of time.
2) Internet stopped working and again, called host, she did not respond. No internet for 2 days...
3) The post is very inaccurate, the room that I have stayed in was totally messy and dirty, so you better not trust the photos on this post.
4) When I arrived, I was not able to find the entrance to the apartment, so I called the host again. She did not pick up the phone and her roommates that she gave my number to, and who were there when I arrived, needed very long to come outside and open the door for me.
If you stay at a place for $100/night, it would be fair for the guest to expect a clean room and a host who responds to calls/messages. I had neither of these two, and because communication and cleanliness is really important to me, I give this place a low rating and would not recommend anybody to stay there. Instead, look for places that got good reviews!
Karen was really helpful and able to accommodate my last minute booking. The apartment is really comfortable and in such an awesome location!
