My wife and I are long time Williamsburg residents and have watched this neighborhood change dramatically. Come and see for yourself!
Bill and Mitzi were great hosts. The space is huge, affordable and in a perfect location for enjoying both Brooklyn and Manhattan. The room and shared bathroom were very clean. I definitely recommend this space!
Unbelievable room and host, both of which deserve all the praise they've received in the other reviews. The pictures don't do the room justice: it is enormous and clean, clean, clean. Bill and Mitzi are two cool people and made the visit so much more enjoyable. They're funny and had many excellent recommendations for the area, but give you plenty of privacy while you're staying with them. There are also three cuddly kitties that love when you stop and give them some pets as you come and go. The area of Williamsburg where the apartment is located could not have been better. It was hip, clean and safe, and had that unmistakable New York vibe without all the craziness and tourists that come with staying in midtown Manhattan. We hope we can visit again soon!
Bill is a gentleman and a pro, and staying in his VERY centrally located Williamsburg loft has been my favorite AirBnB experience thus far. First off, the place is very much in Bedford, rather than the fringes of Williamsburg that are really Greenpoint or Bushwick. Secondly, the place is BIG (don't even need to add "by NYC standards", but let's say it's huge by NYC standards). There is no wide angle lens magic in those photos--just purely wonderful post-warehouse space converted into NYC real estate jealousy.
Honestly, the worst thing I can say about staying with Bill is that you might be tempted to just stay in and soak up the great loft vibes rather than spend as much time as you'd like out in the City. He has a guidebooks, hot cocoa, and all kinds of other random sundries a traveler might need. His cats are awesome. Staying here is basically everything this site is about, and I recommend him without hesitation.
Bill and his wife are great hosts, very friendly and welcoming. The room is huge! Bigger than it looks in the photos but warm and cosy even during a chilly November weekend. The block itself has a lot of character and is kept clean and well decorated.
I'd definitely recommend it!
We had the most wonderful time staying with Bill and Mitzi. The room is fantastic, best location in Williamsburg, close to several restaurants and cafes. Bill is very relaxed and easy-going. The apt is great, nicely decorated, with a cool industrial look. What can I say: the perfect stay! Every night the cats would come visit us: they are adorable and super sweet.
Dont hesitate: stay here if you can!
Super rental in a very nice part of Brooklyn, Bill and his wife are realy awsome...
The room is huge, everything was perfect, I will suggest anyone going to New York to try Bill's Loft...
We had a realy good moment at this place.
My first experience with airbnb, and what a wonderful one! Bill & Mitzi are super hosts, and made me feel very welcome. I really recommend this place for a NY stay, the room is big, clean and awesome, and the location is great. I had to leave at 3 in the morning and they both woke up and helped me carry my stuff down and made sure I got a car to Newark. super service! Thanks so much!
Beautiful and spacious room in Williamsburg. Lots of attention to details. Tea, Coffee, Candy, .... we couldn't have had a better place to stay! Bill and Mitzi were wonderful hosts.
Great, spacious and clean place, perfect location in Williamsburg (and Manhattan only one metro stop away), and very friendly people!
To put it in a nutshell: We just had a wonderful stay at this fabulous appartment! Not only is Williamsburg a vivid but relaxed neighborhood, Bill and Mitzi (+ the cats) are also wonderful hosts who made our stay as pleasant as possible! Thank you again! We highly recommend booking this room!
This space is located in the center of Williamsburg with access to terrific restaurants, nightlife and the local Art scene. The room is huge, bright and captures all that is cool about loft-living in brooklyn. If you are looking for a taste of what this neighborhood has to offer, this is a terrific place to stay. Its within walking distance to the subway, food, bars & nightlife as well as great shops. Also you can easily get to the city via the L train a couple blocks away. Last but not least, you are a short walk away from the river with a lovely green park and stunning view of NYC. Why stay in a crazy expensive hotel with generic furnishings when you can live like a local.
