What an amazing apartment! Chocolatés on the pillows up on arrival, a surround sound music system with speakers even in the bathrooms, all the basics we needed in the kitchen, and just overall perfect experience. The owner even left his iPod so we could listen to music! Also nice location with a juice bar downstairs - we got juice every morning.
Benji is an excellent host, communicative, nice, and very helpful. The apartment was fantastic!. It's clean, perfectly located, and safe. The building has many amentites ...Gym, laundry, doorman, etc. I will definitely be back!
Apartment and building were fantastic. Five friends and I were extremely comfortable staying at Benji's for my birthday and we had a phenomenal time. This apartment is extremely comfortable and it is the heart of Brooklyn. Amazing location and amenities. Benji was prompt with all responses regarding the apartment and I am definitely considering renting this space again.
Benji was very responsive and left detailed, yet simple instructions for my stay. The apartment was centrally located and comfortable.
Enjoyed the stay!
The apartment was fantastic. Modern, clean, stylish...at least as good as a 5* hotel. Some lovely touches like the use of a Tablet, games console etc. The facilities of the building were excellent.
The location was Brooklyn, but a 2-minute walk to the L station and an 8-minute ride into the heart of Manhattan.
Great local facilities and a really cool area to stay in. Plenty of interesting shops, cafes and restaurants. We particularly liked the nearby small park overlooking the East River with the stunning view of the City.
Benji himself was a great host. He answered our questions quickly and the information pack he left for us was very useful.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Benji as a host or this apartment as a great place to stay.
Building and apartment were phenomenally good.
Well-equipped, large and the building staff were top-notch.
This is a great place to stay.
One warning to note: we ended up paying, effictively, $600 per night for the place.
In Benji's first listing he mentioned was "playing around with pricing" and said that the rate would actually be higher than what he originally listed. But if I was willing pay more, he'd be willing to take the reservation.
I didn't respond because I wasn't. And then a day later he said "you know what, screw it" and processed my payment. Trouble is I'd already booked another place because we were days away. That other place also had a strict refund policy, so I ended up paying for both place.
So my recommendation is that if you are a in hurry to book and need certainty, book somewhere else.
If on the other hand you are willing and have time to open a negotiation, this is a fabulous place.
On the other hand, if you have time to
My mother and brother stayed at Benji's place, however I was over there a lot. It was amazing and the best experience we could have asked for! My mum was hesitant about using AirBnB as many first time users are, and this could not have been a better first! Communication with Benji was frequent and easy - my mother and I would always hear back from him within the day (we only emailed). The place is exactly how it appears, was very clean, sunny and spacious. The location was incredible for us especially, as I live and work nearby, however anyone visiting can be guaranteed that it is a great, central spot. Beds were comfortable, doormen/women were always friendly and the building has great, clean facilities. It really was a luxurious stay for all!
Thank you Benji, we will definitely be recommending your place to friends and hopefully using it again!
This exceeded our expectations! The apartment was spacious and well appointed. Benji was available for any questions we had. I highly recommend this airbnb rental!!
Benji was a perfect guest. Clean, cordial and quiet, what more is there? Oh, one more BIG thing... tidy! He left the flat better then they found it. We'd be happy to host Benji again anytime.
Ben is an awesome "geeky yankee", as he likes to define himself :) We share a lot of topic of interest, and had great discussion !! h is very respectful, enthousiastic and fun, and ready to help whenever he can! He's willing to meet a lot of new people, which he did in only a fex days in paris. He's just pretty lost without an internet access to his email and to google maps :)
