From Miami Florida, but have lived in brookln for 5 years studying architecture at Pratt
Cristina’s apartment is large and comfortable; without dust everywhere it would have been wonderful. However, I found the kitchen and the bathroom cleaned up. The bed is excellent. With the exception of a coffee maker, you will find anything you need for cooking. Traffic outside didn’t bother me but the neighbors upstairs make an incredible noise. Actually, the apartment is located in Bedford Stuyvesant, not in Fort Greene neighboorhood . It doesn´t look very friendly at night, but anywhere I found it is safe. The G train is a local line and you have to commute to Manhattan, what makes the trip longer. Cristina let me check in and check out at my convenience and that saved me a headache as my plane left at 7 PM. I didn´t get any communication, call or mail from Airbnb throughout my stay but fortunately I didn´t need them. All in all I found Cristina’s apartement is a good option for a budget traveler in NYC. I would recommend it to my friends, especially now that it has a new coffee maker I bought (and donated).
We had a great stay at Cristina's apartment in Fort Greene! The location is unbeatable (the G train is at your doorstep) and the apartment provided a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. The neighbourhood is lovely - with a great mix of older locals and hip art school kids. There are a few nice eateries nearby (check Mike's Coffee by Pratt) and we really appreciated the friendliness and laid-back atmosphere of the area. Cristina left us thorough instructions and was always quick to respond to email and text queries we had. All in all, a great stay.
This apartment is more spacious than it appears because it is an open floor plan. The bathroom and kitchen have modern renovations and the floors are all hardwood. We have a small dog so the back door to the enclosed garden worked great. There are stores and restaurants within a block so it was very convenient. We didn't use the bus but the stop was right in front.
The only negative was the noise. We live in the country so the street noises and upstairs neighbors were disturbing. Other than that, it was a comfortable place to stay.
It was simply awesome !! The appartement is great !!! We were three and we had a great time there !!! Even if we did not see Cristina she is available by email!
Christina was a great hostess, communications were timely and helpful. The lovely apt. in Brooklyn was perfect for us, near subway and bus.
The bed was comfortable, the information she left for us was detailed and very helpful. A totally delightful stay, and we were sorry not to get to know her better.
We enjoyed our stay at Christina’s apartment. It is right next to the subway but has loads of great places to eat and drink nearby in walking distance. Christina is very helpful and always quick to respond. Thank you!
Great place, host was very flexible and kind. Highly recommended!
