Brooklyn native who lives and works in Fort Greene.
My girlfriend and I with 2 of our friends stayed here for 4 nights. This place is super private with really comfy bedrooms. Bathroom is clean. Great location, easy to get on to subway. We had a great time staying here.
The best thing about this place is the access to transport. Having never been to NY I didn't understand how important this really is! You are five minutes walk from catching trains that will take you anywhere and you can catch the air train to Jamaica and take the LIRR which will have you in Fort Greene in half an hour.
Fort Greene is also a great neighbourhood with bars and restaurants etc and feels safe and lively.
About the unit: The bed is comfortable but weirdly high! There's an aircon unit which helps on hot days, the shower has good pressure.
However the garden is totally overgrown - not tidy as pictured, there are many weeds between the cobblestones and there is only a small area that's actually usable due to overgrown vines everywhere. The picture depicts an area under trees where you could sit in the sun but this is so overgrown that you can't even go out that far.
The front door access is shared with the owner's cleaner who came almost every day which made it a bit less private than we would have liked: although the bedroom is behind a locked door, the bathroom opens onto the hallway.
In short - great location as it's such a central point close to transport, however I think the unit and back yard could do with a bit of TLC.
The experience here was "easy". We didn't see Tanya and Toni during our stay, which for me, was fine. The location is exceptional. It's literally less than a 5 minute walk to 3 different subway stations that you can use to go to different parts of NYC easily. There's a grocery store, Starbucks (in the Barclays center), and numerous restaurants within a block. There's a nice fridge, stove, microwave, etc. so if you want to save some money and make some meals you can do that. The wi-fi was easy and worked well. It was VERY nice to have the air conditioner(s) during our stay because it was in the 90's each day.
The residence is old, which is fine, and the floor creaks wherever you walk.
Overall, this was a good place to stay. I wish the entire residence was upgraded like the bathroom, which felt more modern.
Can't beat the location- adorable neighborhood and great subway access. Exactly what we needed for our stay. Simple and convenient.
Non abbiamo incontrato l'host perché ci ha lasciato le chiavi in un box come concordato.
La zona è molto comoda e tranquilla, vicino a diverse stazioni della metro per visitare sia Brooklyn che Manhattan.
Il collegamento con l'aeroporto JFK è comodo.
La camera è accogliente. Migliorabile il bagno comune.
Tanya and Toni were great hosts. We were able to access the apartment easily and get in touch with them if we had any questions. The apartment was clean and located very close to all the major subway trains. My mother loved that she had a kitchen to cook in, rather than eating out for all their meals. Would highly recommend them.
A fantastic space in a fantastic location. We loved our stay in your city. If we ever come back, we know where to book!
Rapport qualité prix exceptionnel ! Le studio est super bien situé, spacieux, propre. le lit est très confortable et le fait que la salle de bain soit au 3e ne pose pas de problème, nous n'avons jamais dû attendre pour quelqu'un d'autre. Le check in et le check out se font de manière autonome, avec un système de boîte à clés. Un gros plus: l'équipement : il y avait même de la climatisation (indispensable à NY en été !!), un sèche-cheveu et un fer à repasser ! Seul "bémol" : une fenêtre sans rideau -> on est réveillés tôt. Et le look défraîchi du studio (par rapport aux photos). Mais à recommander, d'autant plus que le quartier est super et très accessible (à 2 min de Atlantic avenue, avec 5 lignes de métro !)
Tanya and Toni's apartment is great for a NYC visit! And do not forget beautiful Brooklyn!!
It is perfect to explore Manhattan as well as just go 2 min outside and have a drink or a burger!
There were some miscommunication during our check in which wasn't resolved for the first day of our arrival and we were refunded for that first night. Despite the bumpy check in our stay was lovely. Very comfortable and cozy. The backyard was a great place to hang out and to scape from the craziness in the city.
We're happy you enjoyed your stay. Until next time be well.
