Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit in New York. Lloyd war ein toller Gastgeber. Das Bad und der Flur wurden jeden Tag gereinigt. Wir haben gar nicht gemerkt, dass wir das Bad teilen mussten. Wir waren ganz frei und konnten kommen und gehen wann wir wollten. Das Apprtement war sehr schön, nicht frisch renoviert aber sauber und absolut ausreichend für unsere Bedürfnisse. Zur Begrüßung hat Lloyd den Kühlschrank mit Wasser und Milch gefüllt. Handtücher und Bettwäsche waren sauber und ausreichend vorhanden. Die Bettwäsche war gemütlich und sehr sauber. Wir würden dieses Appartment jederzeit weiterempfehlen. Die Ubahn war direkt um die Ecke mit einer tollen Anbindung nach Manhattan. 20 Minuten Fahrtzeit muss man aber schon einplanen.
Alles in allem ein unvergesslicher Aufenthalt!
The room looks exactly like the picture, it was clean and nice. It's really close to the train and you can be on Times Square in 20-25 minutes.
Marylyn is really adorable!
If I'll go to NY again, I'll stay here for sure.
We never got to see Marylyn, but we got taken care of Lloyd who were very nice to us.
The place is located very close to subway, 2-3 mins walking distance. People in the area are cool and friendly. We only stayed for 2 nights but got a great stay in Brooklyn. Once we figured out the maps and how the subway are planned it was simple to get into Manhattan. Lloyd gave us all the information we could have use for and also helped us call for a cab since we don't have american phones.
If you have short time in NYC as we had it better to stay in Manhattan, around grand central or up to central park. But if you got time and like to stay a little bit outside this is a perfect stay.
I had a great stay at Marylyn's studio apartment. It had everything I needed to enjoy my time in New York -- a wonderful kitchenette, and excellent internet. The location was very convenient. It's a really fantastic value!
This is my second time staying here and again I highly recommend.
It was perfect for my needs - the rooms are clean,well kept and comfortable, the hosts are warm and helpful without being cloying or over-solicitous, and the subway is just a block away and 4 stops to Manhattan on the A train. The room with a kitchenette is very well furnished with cooking facilities and tv, and fast reliable wireless internet. Marylyn let me keep my bags in the house after checking out, since my flight was in the evening and kindly arranged for a taxi to take me to the airport. Will probably stay here again when next in New York.
I would recommend Marylyn's home to everybody!
It was such a lovely experience staying there.
The kitchen had everything we needed, the bed was comfortable,
the bathroom was clean.
To make things better Marylyn and her husband Loyyd are both sweethearts.
Really good place to stay
Really good place to stay
I was a little turned off by the neighborhood initially, but soon discovered it's really not that bad. I never felt unsafe, even walking alone at 2AM - there are always lots of people around.
As to the place itself, it's very well-kept and very nice overall. Marylyn was very accommodating and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay in Brooklyn.
One minor note - the airbnb posting mentions access to a kitchen, but it's actually only for coffee/cereal, so don't expect to be able to cook here.
Great value for money!! lovely hosts quiet street even at night , police at the metro station just around the corner 2 minn walk and when I asked people living in the neighbourhood for directions they where super friendly and helpful I even made friends just getting some lovely Caribbean food from Mellanies on Fulton St!
I highly recommend this room and neighbourhood for adventurous travellers who want a complete experience of New York and like to experience culture. I would stay here again!
