I am easy going person. Professional, fun and respectful guy in late 30's.
The street parking is close to impossible when we arrived at about 8pm as it is a densely populated area. We struggled cos we had quite a bit of luggage. The life lobby area and corridors are rundown and have a stench which might be less forgiving in summer. The room's window cant be shut completely so it gets cold at night and when the wind blows against the blinds the noise goes on throughout the night. I don't know if its a seedy area but police sirens were often heard at least once in an hour even past midnight. He had friends in and out so the toilet situation was tricky.
Antonin is a polite guy and granted us late check out till 7 pm. Check in is only possible after 6 pm.
I think this property is overpriced for its quality.
Had a great stay over New Years at Antonin's place. We had a good time and Antonin was very easy going and flexible!
Antonin is a good guy, very attentive and kind. We had a late check in, after 11 p.m. And he was waiting for us. The room is large, bed is comfortable. Thanks for everything.
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Staying here was amazing! The location is really residential and very close to the subway,which was perfect for me! Beyond the great place, Antonin is the coolest guy you're going to meet. He was so accommodating and was always available to help you navigate wherever you were going....
Antonin was a great host and his place was terrific. Late meetings and a dinner commitment meant that I had to check in late. Antonin was extremely accommodating about the situation and couldn't have been more easygoing about it. The room is as advertised: big, clean, comfortable, well-appointed. I'd be glad to stay with Antonin again.
I stayed for two nights at Antonin's place for a quick visit to NYC. Antonin was a very attentive and friendly host. He helped me figure out easily how to get to his location and responded promptly to all of my messages. His apartment is very, very clean and well kept. I liked the decorations, amenities (TV, Wi Fi) and atmosphere. My stay was brief, but very comfortable.
The apartment in Brooklyn was within 5 minutes of the subway station and the station was about 15-20 minutes away from Manhattan. Very conveniently located. The Brooklyn neighborhood offers many options to dine nearby, if needed.
The location is right by Ocean Pkwy, which as others reviewers noted, can be relatively noisy at night. However, I did not find this to be an issue sat all. You are located on a 6th floor, high enough where the sound muffles well. If anything, I found the city noise lulling. I would gladly stay again at this location on my next trip to NYC. Can't best the price and ease of access to Manhattan.
Really enjoyed my 4 nights in Antonins. Bedroom is very large and the bed was very comfortable. As a solo traveler I felt safe in the area and a couple of underground stations are nearby. Antonin was welcoming and cheerful. Very glad of the lift as he is on the 6th floor and enjoyed a few movies on Netflix which was nice.
I found locking/opening the front door a bit tricky.
Would definitely stay again but hope Antonin invests in some new towels.
Antonin's place was exactly as it looked in the photo's. He was helpful with recommendations of places to go. I was out much of the time i was there so we didn't really hang out much but had a few chats here and there.
Nice guy, who was really understanding when I woke him up at 3am as my key wouldn't open the door.
I liked the apartment and the room. The kitchen wasn't unclean, but wasn't sparkling either, is the only constructive feedback i'd give, otherwise a great place to stay.
The apartment location was about 4-5 mins from the Subway and a good line to get into Manhatten. Brooklyn is obviously Brooklyn so it does take a bit longer to get to the touristy bits but that's why the apartment was a good price.
Not as glamorous as the pictures led me to believe -- took forever for the hot water to come on in the shower, the toilet was difficult to flush, there was another person crashing on the living room couch (between our room and the kitchen) which we weren't informed about in advance, and the bedroom window faces Ocean Parkway, so traffic noise was a nightmare. Antonin was slow to respond to my emails/phone calls (I contacted him twice, wanting to know if we could check-in early, and didn't get a response from him until two days prior to our arrival). The bedroom was indeed very big and the bed was really comfy (like sleeping on a cloud).
