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 great- great house great host
Excelente experience. I been treated like home. A must if you are in nyc
Coolest apartment in the world! And the landlord as well! 5mins from subway station, great location!
I stayed for two nights in williamsburg and I liked it!
It was the last place of my trip through the united states and it was cool to land on such an alive "planet".
I felt welcome and free to do what I wanted to. Rico is a very open and playfull person.
I loved the cosy bedroom ( I wish I had have more time for sleeping). The noises from the neighbor lofts were irritating for me during the first night, in the second I was allready used to it. The industrial gaz-heater is really impressiv and makes the loft to a warm and comfi place. But it is very loud during the night. Definitly an unique lodge, I recommand it to curious and adventures people!
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.

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 !
