Nous avons adoré habiter chez Rico, il est super gentil et accueillant. Le quartier est un beau mélange d'industriel et de jeunes artistes. Il y a de bons restaurants, épiceries 24 heures, brocantes le dimanche et métro...c'est un quartier animé et festif le weekend. J'y retournerais n'importe quand. Nous nous sommes senti en sécurité... Et je suis tombé en amour avec Bogart le chat :)
I felt so welcome at Rico's! His house is like a little museum, all those memories and stories, really amazing. From the first correspondence till the last goodbye he was the best host ever. Rico took me to his friends, showed me the best places around and let me borrow his showerstuff and bike. Everything to make me feel at home and let me live a New York life.
Thanks Rico!! I will be back :-)
He's amazing. His apartment is amazing. The neighborhood is amazing. Stay to have wonderful experience.
Rico was super welcoming and made sure he connected with me several times before my arrival. It was great (and reassuring!) knowing that my host was prepared and looking forward to my stay.
All directions were accurate and it was easy to find his place, he was out when I arrived but was back within minutes of me emailing him which was great!
The place is exactly what you see in the pictures, Rico has taken a lot of care and time to create his world and it is wonderful to be able to share it, for even a couple of days.
They were having problems with the gas whilst I was there so no heating/oven/hot water. Rico was very apologetic and there was a shower in an empty flat that tenants could use. There was nothing Rico could have done and I can only imagine how frustrated he and the other tenants must be! (But must admit that as a female I didnt feel entirely comfortable showering in an empty flat on another floor ).
Rico was a generous and considerate host and I was lucky enough to join him and his (amazing!) friends for a night out- so my stay was totally worth it just for that! Big thank you to him for being open to introducing me, just another airbnb guest!
Totally easy to use the subway to head into the city and cafes etc around the loft anyway.
I would recommend Rico and his place but am hoping that they have the gas sorted!!
Thanks again Rico for a great stay
ps Bogart is a boss
What could I possibly add to the verdict of previous reviewers who have stayed at Rico's fantastic little Brooklyn empire? Rico and his loft are two of those things that are as unseperable as Baywatch and red bathing suits: Step into his world and you'll have a good idea of what the inside of his mind looks like. Rico is the most welcoming and generous host, bursting with positive energy and relentless amazement for life and everything that comes with it. Take a leap and embark on the journey he may take you on, you will do everything except for regretting it. Without a doubt one of the greatest places you can stay in, cannot wait to come back!
Every thing is just as pictured here: bright, colorful, spacious, welcoming and comfortable, just like Rico. This place is nothing short of paradise with a warm hearted and witty host. Enjoyed every minute!
Great host. Authentic loft in a great location. Ideal for party people.
Rico was a very welcoming host that greeted us with hugs on arrival. He has a cozy space filled with an eclectic assortment of art. The place was quite large for a New York apartment and was comfortably warm on our bitterly cold weekend.
We stayed in the loft space which has a single mattress and a small TV. The ceiling above the bed space is low, which was fine for us but may be an issue for taller people. The neighborhood has a real New York feel and if you're looking for a genuine New York experience you will enjoy this but if you're more comfortable with the touristy New York, you may be out of your element here. I would recommend this place for singles, art lovers and couples but parents with little kids might want to look elsewhere.
Street parking was readily available for free which is rare in New York. Once you park your car you really won't need to use it again. Rico made sure we knew how to navigate the location and walked us over to the subway which was very convenient.
There are ample bars and restaurants within walking distance. Rico recommended a local breakfast place that was amazing (I can't remember the name of it but they had lemon poppy-seed pancakes and brioche french toast that was fantastic). We enjoyed our stay and hope you will too. :-)
Rico went out of his way to make us feel welcome - he showed us around Bushwick the first night and even came with us to dinner. He showed great hospitality, offering beverages and food for breakfast. The loft is very convenient to two subway stations, and only about 10 minutes from the Lower East Side. If you want to experience a funky slice of bohemian Brooklyn, this is a great place. If quiet privacy is a high priority, you might be more comfortable in a chain hotel.
Coolest B&B I've ever stayed in. I wished I had more time there and had more time to talk to Rico. Rico was very nice and super flexible with check-in/out. Will definitely come back for a longer stay!!
Rico was very honest, clean and polite!!
Great fellow host, the apartment was left immaculate , Rico communicated well throughout. Very easy going laid back guy. Highly Recommended!
Super chill and easy going. Very nice and had good convos. Fun attitude always.
Rico is awesome!! He was a very respectful guest and has a contagiously happy personality!! :) we would love to have him back anytime!
Una persona llena de buena vibra y mucha luz !! Excelente huésped, respetuoso, amigable y sencillo !! Con gusto lo recibo de nuevo las veces que quiera !
