Stayed for 11 days Very close to everything! I truly felt as if I was home! Ray and Linda was very good with everything! I will always book this everytime I'm in NYC! Thank you Ray so much for everything!
My girlfriend and I stayed here several nights for our annual birthday getaway. Her mom stayed with us one night and there was plenty of room for three. It's an old building so it has it's odd quirks, which we appreciated. We were out late most nights coming in from manhattan and never felt unsafe, but then it takes a lot to phase us. You really can't beat this price and Brooklyn itself has a lot of fun adventure to offer. We really appreciated this space being made available.
Le proprio est très gentil et disponible, l'endroit est petit et chaleureux, le quartier est tranquille et le métro est à deux minutes de marche… Quoi demander de plus?
I wanted to take my wife for a short vacation in New York since she had never been there. While I was looking for a budget hotel in Manhattan (yeah right!) I took a chance on homeaway.com and found Ray's studio apartment in Brooklyn. Ray was very nice and helpful during the booking process and also after we arrived. He allowed us to check-in early since out flight arrived in the morning. He also gave us ideas about where to eat and a good general overview of the neighborhood.
The apartment is on the second floor of their brownstone building in the Bedford-Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn. If you have problems climbing stairs then you might want to find another place to stay but then again you won't be able to use the local subway stop, either. The apartment had a queen bed (the photo shows a futon but there is an actual bed) and a futon that can be also used. A small window A/C unit worked fine and kept the unit reasonably cool during the hot July days. The apartment was clean and comfortable and it was perfect for our needs. The mini-fridge also was nice to keep bottled water cold and handy. The shower had plenty of hot water. The building was quiet and we were never disturbed while we slept.
The neighborhood felt reasonably safe and it was only three blocks to the Nostrand Ave. subway station. A single woman might not feel safe late at night by herself but we had no problems. The people we talked to in the neighborhood were friendly which made our trip even more enjoyable. The easy access to the A and C trains was very nice since those trains serve many of the hot tourist areas (Times Square, Chinatown, Central Park, etc…) and it made it easy for us to connect with our LaGuardia airport shuttle bus at the Port Authority Bus Terminal.
Overall I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Raymond’s apartment to any of my family or friends. We’re planning our next trip to New York with our three kids and I’ll be staying at Ray’s larger apartment (# 174166) which also has stellar reviews.
Ray and his wife Linda were very nice. The room was clean and comfortable. They told us were the closes subway was. They suggested restaurants, bars and also were we could find convenient stores.
Ray and his wife were wonderful and went out of their way to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and comfortable. As explained in previous reviews, Ray took the time to ensure we knew which subway to take to get to Manhattan. He also suggested restaurants and bars that we could try. The subway is only two blocks away. We had an unexpected flight cancellation and Ray graciously allowed us to stay an extra day on very short notice. This was our first time to New York and one that we will never forget. Next time we take a trip to New York we plan on staying at Ray's.
