Obed is in a fantastic location and provided us with exactly what we needed. The beds were comfortable and we were also provided clean towels. There was a fridge and a tv with cable in the room. Obed let us come and go as we pleased just as long as we locked the doors. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks obed!
The apartments location is PERFECT. Mr. Obed was very nice and helpful when we needed. The room is large and wifi works pretty good. He gave us the key of the room and we didn't have access to the rest of the apartment, so we could come and go at anytime without disturbing his family. Comfortable beds, TV and privacy, we had a very nice stay.
Although I’m a very frequent traveler, staying in Obed’s apartment was my first time using Airbnb. I can positively say it was a great experience, and I would never consider anywhere else in NYC so long as he has availability.
The room is exactly as it’s pictured and described. It’s not a 5-star hotel, but it is as clean and well-maintained as you could possibly hope for in a lived-in home. For the rate he charges, the VALUE is OUTSTANDING. Check-in was simple, requiring no more than showing up at the home at the time I said we’d be there. Getting the keys and being shown to the room took no more than two or three minutes.
The apartment is a two-bedroom, one-bathroom home shared between Airbnb guests and Obed’s brother. We had full privacy in our bedroom, only interacting with his brother if he happened to be watching television in the living room when we were coming or going from the apartment. The interactions we did have were very pleasant, and he is a very friendly, kind person. Definitely respectful of privacy, and if it wasn’t for the fact that he sometimes is sitting in the living room, we’d have never known he was there. Although we spent four nights in the apartment we never used the kitchen, but it appeared perfectly fine if you plan to prepare a small snack or meal.
The location is absolutely amazing, the home sitting just steps from Bedford Avenue. There is no shortage of small shops and grocery stores, restaurants, and nightlife within a few minutes’ walk from the building. The subway is less than half of a mile from the home, and I never felt unsafe in the neighborhood at any hour of the day or night. As far as exploring the city, Manhattan is literally one subway stop away. Thanks to the L line’s route and location, it takes less time to get to most points in Manhattan from here than it would if you were actually staying on the island.
All-in-all, staying in Obed’s home was a great experience. The neighborhood was lively and vibrant, and if you’re staying anywhere else in New York City you’re simply throwing your money away.
This Place is in a very convenient part of brooklyn. williamsburg offers bars, markets, subway-stations, laundry-facilities and much more you might need. We saw Obed and his family very rarely because we were all day out sightseeing. But when we met they were always very friendly and helpful. The apartment is very good for 2 persons and quiet to sleep. An ideal start for a journey to manhatten.
Obed is a very friendly and helpful host. We spent two nights at his place in Williamsburg, very close to Bedford Abenue, the heart of Williamsburg. Obed lives on the ground floor. The room is one floor up in the apartment of Obed's brother. The room is spacious, quite clean and provided with a well working air conditioner and a large TV. The rest of the apartment is a little bit crammed and the internet doesn't work all the time unfortuately. But all in all I would recommend the place if you want to expericence the amazing Williamsburg.
Great staying with Obed's brother in Williamsburg. Very easy going, quiet and accommodating. We only met Obed once to check out but he was available on the phone for us. Flexible Check-in and Check-out times which was really good for us. Overall it is a simple room which offers everything you need in a great location!
We stayed at Obed apartment for 11 days. Obed gave us a warm welcome and was able available to answer any of our questions. Williamsburg is a very hip beautiful neighborhood and the apartment is located very close to Bedford Av, where you can find a lot of places to eat and bars. The apartment is also located very close to Bedford Av Station of the L train. The bedroom has been recently painted and now has a new flat screen tv. The bedroom and the bathroom were clean but the kitchen was a bit cluttered that was okay though because we only used the fridge to keep some fruit and water. The AC works really well. We always had clean towels and bedsheets available.The only minor problem that we had was that our last 2 days we did not have WiFi access because Obed changed his router and it was not able to connect properly with ours but Im sure that this is just temporary and now they have resolved it. Moreover, Obeds brother was very nice and allowed us to use his internet connection when we needed to check our bus tickets information.
Everything as described. Obed is an excellent man. Very friendly and always trying to help on what you need. The neighbourhood was excellent. The apartment is perfectly located, 10 steps from bedford avenue in Williamsurg!
Obed is a great guy! My friend and I are studying physics, and it turns out Obed did too, so we had a nice little chat about that when we met him. He offered a few tips, and was very nice and helpful when we needed to contact him later in our stay.
The room is actually much nicer than the pictures show. The beds are a little firm for my tastes, but they were clean and nice. The TV is newer than the pictures...nice, big flatscreen, although you don't get many channels. There is an air conditioner in the room, although the rest of the apartment (to which you have access if you want) is not air conditioned. We never could get the wi-fi to work, so I can't comment on that. As stated, the apartment is occupied by Obed's brother, but we almost never saw him all weekend. The bathroom was a bit janky, but it was clean so that was good.
The neighborhood is pretty nice. Things look a bit sketchy at times, but there are always families walking around and everyone you see on the street is very nice. I never felt unsafe, and I'm a naive country boy who's not used to city craziness. It's in a great location to be able to walk down to the river and see the Manhattan skyline or hit up some bars or restaurants in pretty much any direction you pick.
Obed is very friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was clean, however the rest of the apartment was not: the kitchen was cluttered and the bathroom could use a good cleaning. You get what you pay for, but if you're looking for just a place to stay to explore amazing Williamsburg and rest of New York, this is perfect.
