Wow, if you enjoy living in a mucky home that is over run with cats, this is the place for you!....we did not get the room advertised but an other room that was not cleaned as another person had left that morning
On arriving, the stairs up to the apartment the lights did not work, bikes, trainers & general rubbish on the stairs at the top of the first landing was the stench of cat shit & actually was cat shit! & loads of it! The room was less than average & the area was dangerous, in fact it was in the middle of the Brooklyn Getto! There was even an RIP WALL were all the Faces of Fallen Gang Bangers was sprayed on to keep THIER souls alive!
We booked for 4 nights & left early as it was in safe & I'm from a rough housing estate in Hull!
A cozy stay with friendly hosts.
We met with Regine's room mate who gave us a friendly introduction. It was a fairly late check-in so we were grateful for her patience. She gave us keys to the building so we could come and go as we pleased. The wifi worked perfectly and the bed was comfortable. We met Regine the following, who was friendly and helpful.
The lights were out in the hall, but we were given a torch so we wouldn't trip over errant cats! This was not a problem at all and was actually fun.
The neighbourhood may look a bit scary at first, but it's really not. Everyone we spoke to on the street was helpful and friendly. It's also a very short walk (five minutes) to Kingston Subway station, making it very accessible to Brooklyn and Manhattan.
We left at 5am on our last morning. Understandably, nobody was up yet, so we locked the door and posted the keys through the mailbox.
Would stay again.
Excellent séjour chez Régine et ses co locataires. Régine n'était pas là au début de notre séjour mais nous avons été très bien accueillis par la française Melissa très sympa. Le quartier est sympa et très calme. Le métro est tout près avec deux lignes qui vous conduisent assez rapidement à Manhattan. Une chouette expérience !
Thank you Melissa and Regine.
Regine and her roommate were very friendly and helpful. The room was great and the house was on a beautiful street. We would certainly stay again!
Nice room, very friendly and helpful host - I really enjoyed my stay.
I stayed with my boyfriend at Regine's place for a week in June, 2013.
Regine lives in a wonderful house with lots of space and an incredible roof terrace. We enjoyed every single moment there and felt like we were home. The atmosphere is nice and cozy and you get as much privacy as needed.
We'll definitely come back the next time we visit :)
Great location, nice connection with subway. Few really nice restaurants in the neighborhood (Bunch-O-Bagels for breakfast and Basil for charming dinner (website hidden)). Clean room, towels at your disposal. Nice hosts and great welcome with prosecco. There is also awesome terrace where you can chill after long day. Definitely you need to like cats!
Regine was superb host, it was a real pleasure to stay at her place.
Regine, your sister and her friend were great-I could not have asked for better guests. Remember you can always reach out to.
