global citizen of the world looking to thrust the human experience forward by helping us all do better.
The reservation was canceled 7 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I was extremely disappointed. I had stayed with this host before, and the location was perfect for what I needed to do, despite limitations of the actual space (no AC, too much light in the bedroom, sharing the single bathroom with quite a few other people, no closet space).
This host refused to respond to our request, over a month in advance, to add a fourth person to our reservation. We were forced to find another accommodation for two of our party. Despite this, our host refused to correct the reservation to make it for the actual 2 people who were staying there! She charged us for three people, despite the fact that only two of us were there. If she had responded to us in a timely way she could've charged for 4 people.
I made repeated attempts to work it out with her without success.
Due to the location, I would have returned again and again. She has lost my future business and my goodwill.
Valerie's place is convenient as its location. It is very easy to get to the city, which made us trip a lot more fun and less suffering on roads. Also she helps you with so many tips for entertainments in the city. You can use the kitchen and the living room all you want. there are great places to eat different types of food and enjoy other cuisines in the neighborhood as well. So you may not use the kitchen at all:) and even though it was snowing outside we were just wearing tshirts at the place. so it's really warm. hope everyone enjoys their stay! I'm sure you will.
This was perfect for my short stay in Brooklyn. Located in a great safe neighborhood.
Valerie was great! She was so hospitable and the room and place were just what we needed.
Valerie was extremely accommodating and a pleasant host. This apartment is in a great location and has most of the amenities you need. The bathroom is nice, she was very accommodating of our late to bed-late to rise schedule. After the trip I now consider Valerie a friend, she came out to the Lower East Side and watched our band played and hung out as well. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay personally, but in an effort to be fair and honest I will list the small complaints made by band members: cat odor, living room occupied (this isn't common though Val explained, just a full house at the moment.)
Once again, I'd recommend this place to anyone, and it would be even more cozy if we weren't travelling in a flock of 5! Thanks for everything Val!
Valerie was a great host. We arrived in the city at an early hour, and she went out of her way to ensure we had an easy arrival/access to the apartment. When we met for the first time, we shared great conversation and she really is a people person, which is important for any good host. Val also gave us some neat tips on places to go for entertainment and eat. The location of the apartment is very good for connections to the subway - 2 mins from the apartment and you're on the G line. I wasn't sure what to expect of Brooklyn as an area to stay in, but we met some very nice people during our 3 day stay. Even the local store owners around the corner (handy for buying groceries), were kind and helpful. Overall, this is a great place to stay if you're in NYC for a short time.
Valerie was an incredible host. She made you feel comfortable in her space and was quite accommodating. The apartment is in a great location to the G train, which makes getting to Manhattan quite easy. Overall, I recommend this spot for anyone needing a nice place to throw their bags down and go enjoy the city.
My husband and I stayed here a weekend. Val was extremely accommodating. She kept in touch with me a month before our stay to iron out specifics, give directions to her place, etc. so she's really on the ball. She works a lot, so she had her roommate let us in and hand over the keys to us, and everything went off without a hitch. When we entered the room, she'd already laid out towels for us, and the room was really clean, and nicely decorated.
Both the room and the apartment are spacious and the bed is comfy. There's a huge window that lets a lot of light in. The neighborhood is nice and diverse, with a lot of good restaurants. The apartment is quite convenient to the G train - just a block or two away. From the G, you can transfer easily to the A train, so there's easy access to Manhattan.
As a hostess, Val is the nicest person - charming and very hospitable. She's interesting to talk to and has a lot of great stories. She takes the time to get to know you and offer you anything you might need - food, drinks, restaurant recommendations, etc. - even though she is super busy with her job. I would totally stay here again.
This was so neat - I was looking for a place near my daughter in Brooklyn, and it turned out that Valerie was in the same building! I had already booked with her when I realized the happy coincidence!
Valerie and her girfriend were great guests, even though they stayed for only one night. Beatiful girls inside and out! It was a pleasure to meet them and chat with them, and I am really honored that they choose my place. Highly recommended them to all Airbnb community.
