Nos encanto el apartamento, la situación era inmejorable, a una parada de metro de Manhatan y con la boca de metro en la puerta de casa. El apartamento es muy comido y con mucho encanto. El barrio es genial. Lleno de buen ambiente y cafés preciosos para desayunar, cenar o tomarte una cerveza tras haber estado todo el día recorriendo Manhatan. Ahora que conocemos la ciudad sin duda nos volveríamos a alojar en el apartamento de Josep, mucho mejor que en el centro de Manhatan. Josep fue encantador, nos dejo el apartamento limpio y preparado para que nos (website hidden) muy fácil contactar con el si lo necesitas para cualquier cosa. Ademas fue un detalle que nos regalara una botella de vino y que hubiera comprado un adaptador universal para poder conectar nuestro ordenador.
Además pudimos dejar el equipaje en su casa hasta las 17 horas del día que salíamos (nuestro vuelo salía a las 22 h) y aprovechar esa mañana recorriendo (website hidden) gracias por todo Josep.
We just returned home from a marvelous week-long stay at Josep's apartment, visiting our kids over Xmas. Josep met us with the keys and was very friendly and helpful, even though our flight was late. His place is cozy, comfortable and stylish, with a good bed and very nice linens. The location is awesome-a couple doors down from the subway and smack dab in the middle of anywhere you might want to go. The apt. itself is "traditional Williamsburg" and you feel like a resident of the neighborhood, not simply a visitor. Though we did not cook, it was nice to have a fridge and be able to make our morning coffee & tea. One big plus is the beautiful garden courtyard, available to residents of the building. All in all, my husband & I had a terrific time and I would highly recommend staying here.
The reservation was canceled 19 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had a great stay in Josep's apartment. It is excellently located right next to Bedford Ave station (L line) - which will get you into Manhattan in 10 minutes! The price was very reasonable and the accommodation was spacious - the lounge room is a bit of a useless space as the TV is in the bedroom (and doesn't have free to air/cable - only netflix) - we purchased a digital tv aerial and hope it's still there as it picked up shows such as Good Morning America - half the fun of travel for us is the TV in another country!
The bathroom is incredibly tiny - no bath, shower only and very small. You brush your teeth in the kitchen sink.
The kitchen is well equipped - cooker (gas, self lighting); microwave, kettle, toaster oven and importantly the fridge. We shopped at the foodstore up on 3rd and Metropolitan (which has a great gluten free range). There are also plenty of corner stores around for things such as milk. Kindly, others had left basics like milk which was helpful when you first land to make a hot drink. We did the same leaving milk, eggs etc
The big issue for us was the heating as we stayed in December when it snowed - we asked Josep about the heating and he indicated that there was no control for it (you are able to turn it down/off once it's on; but you can't turn it on) - this proved to be a cold point for us as several days we were out and back around 4pm before we went out again for dinner and the apartment was very cold. We ended up using the electric heater/fan/space blower that Josep advised us about.
The other sore point was the noise - we live in a very quiet apartment and unfortunately arrived on a Friday night when the local restaurants/pubs were busy. The other noise came from the garbage trucks and the banging of the bins. We weren't used to this noise and as the bedroom faces the street, you hear this easily. There is no noise from neighbouring apartments apart from people walking in the apartment above.
There is wifi in the apartment which is great for overseas travellers!
All in all, a great apartment with a host that was easy to contact and very polite! He waited at the apartment for us when we landed to collect the keys and was available via whatsapp to ask questions (where do you put the rubbish etc). Would happily stay here again.
Todo perfecto : el piso, la ubicación, el barrio y el anfitrión. Realmente fue una experiencia genial, muchas gracias Josep !
We had a wonderful six days at Josep's cozy Williamsburg apartment! It is in a fantastic location, right next to L train, and very close to the Williamsburg bridge (train), which makes it easy to head into Manhattan... We also took the East River Ferry down to Dumbo and walked along the waterfront - beautiful and great walking! The apartment itself is clean and comfortable - although we weren't in it all that much - to much to do!
This apartment was a phenomenal, modern, and very spacious 1 bedroom 2 bath, in a not so modern city. I was very happy with the functionality of everything in the apartment. The location was great, as you could walk anywhere in the Colonial City with no problem. Tons of great restaurants within minutes from your door. Josep was very consistent communicating with me, addressing any concerns I may have had. The apartment has a washer/dryer which was extremely convenient, and Serafin, the doorman, was helpful as well with any concerns I had. Will stay here again on my next visit to Santo Domingo.
Our stay in Josep's Santo Domingo apartment was great! The apartment is very bright, with a kitchen with every pot, pan and plate you could possibly need, and great air conditioning. The location is wonderful; you are right there on Plaza Espana, a short walk to the pedestrian street, and just a little bit further and you are in Malecon. Lots of places to eat within walking distance as well a a well stocked supermarket. Even the frequent rain didn't mar our wonderful stay. Thanks!
We loved our time in Williamsburg and Josep's apartment was a delightful and incredibly convenient place to stay. The apartment is ideally located within Williamsburg and is literally two doors from the subway, so you can be in Manhattan in 5-10 minutes. The apartment has a lovely design aesthetic and some unique art, which we enjoyed. Josep also had an incredibly good book and magazine collection. The bed was comfy and there were plenty of plush fresh towels and linen. The only downside to the apartment was the bathroom/toilet, which was perhaps the smallest I've ever seen! But not unmanageable and it certainly didn't diminish our stay. There was also no cupboard space to hang stuff, so we continued to live out of our suitcases. Josep was a welcoming and helpful host and we would certainly come back to stay here, as well as recommend it to others.
josep was a perfect host. kind, polite and helpful. we felt very comfortable and at home in his nice apartment in the very cool and relaxing neighborhood of williamsburg. we'd be in manhattan in less than 10 minutes with the subway. thanks for entrusting us your place, marie
