Gorgeous room on parlor floor apartment with 10-ft ceilings in a renovated and restored late 1800’s brownstone on a quiet block of historic Stuyvesant Heights. The room is very private, in a family owned townhouse style brownstone. It offers a grand room with original carved wooden window trimming and the original parquet floor beautifully preserved; a complete kitchen and bathroom. Futon in room can easily be made into a bed, airbed(s) can also be provided for additional sleeping needs. For additional comfort I will provide a mattress topper for the futon.
The bathroom is very spacious, and comes equipped with flatiron, and blow-dryer. The place is fully furnished with tables, comfortable seating, and good lighting. Kitchen is stocked with coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave, full refrigerator and freezer, coffee, sugar, salt, spices, and basic cooking and serving essentials. Free wireless internet connection available.Tall windows with lots of natural sunlight throughout apartment.Shades on the windows can be drawn for privacy, and to help keep the space cool in the summer (which is easy, given the high ceilings and the cross-draft).
I also live in apartment and can easily be reached. Please note shared bathroom & kitchen. I'm usually out and about.

Reviews of this property
HORRIBLE: BED BUGS . The room was infested with bed bugs. The bites cause spectacular and painful eczema.A nightmare . Go on google to be aware. And back home it's a hard and costly moment :washing,cleaning,steam,freezer for all the clothes and luggages .
the room is large but separated from the kitchen by a simple window panel : noise and lights.
The metro is very close
The room is a spacious, beautiful room, with adjacent the kitchen and bathroom. It is a 2 minutes walk to public transport, only half an hour or less by subway from Penn station, with a frequent service. Cosy restaurants and supermarket close by.
Yoki is very friendly, even allowed us to check in very very early in the morning, as we had an early flight into the city. Enjoyed this lovely room in a quiet, but lively neighborhood.
Wohnlage ruhig in Nebenstrasse
5 Min. Fußweg zur U-Bahn
2 Min. Frühstückscafe
Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in unmittelbarer Nachbarschaft
Restaurant überwiegend Fastfood, ca. 8 Min. indisches Restaurant in der Notstand Avenue
Küche gut ausgestattet
Gutes Preis- Leistungsverhältnis
Auf dem Fotos im Internet wirkt die Wohnung deutlich grösser und heller (reale Zimmergrösse ca. 16m2).
Angabe Wohnungsgröße im Internet 65m2. Nutzbar Zimmer, Küche und Bad geteilt mit Vermieter (geschätzt ca. 30m2).
Das Zimmer liegt ideal, nicht weit von einer U-Bahn-Haltestelle. Allerdings mussten wir Küche und Bad mit der Vermieterin teilen. Entweder habe ich das überlesen bei wimdu oder es war nicht so genau definiert. Was aber kein Problem war: die Küche haben wir nicht benutzt und die Vermieterin hat uns nie gestört, wenn wir im Bad waren. Sie war sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Wir waren den ganzen Tag unterwegs und waren nur zum Schlafen im Zimmer und dafür hat es seinen Zweck erfüllt.
Yoki ist eine sehr nette Gastgeberin und hat uns doch einige Tips gegeben.
Straßenbahn wie angekündigt direkt um die Ecke und in wenigen Minuten zu Fuß zu erreichen, mit guter Anbindung nach Manhatten.
Schlafbereich steht zur eigenen Nutzung bereit, wobei Küche und Bad mit der Gastgeberin geteilt werden. Zimmer sieht aus wie auf den Fotos. Leider sind Ablageflächen für die eigenen Klamotten nur sehr beschränkt vorhanden und
die Beleuchtung des Raums ist doch sehr dunkel ausgefallen.
Wenn man das Zimmer nur zum Schlafen nutzt ist die Ausstattung allerdings vollkommen ausreichend.
We had a great stay at Yoki's place in Brooklyn. The room is very cozy, with vintage woodwork around the doors and windows. The kitchen is clean and well equipped and you will find everything you need if you want to prepare your own meals. Eating out is also no problem, there are countless cafes, restaurants and shops in the neighbourhood. The Metro station is just around the corner, so this is a perfect place for trips to Manhattan. Yoki is an awesome host and this place highly recommended!
Yoki is a very warm and welcoming person and we had great conversations. Her room was our litte, lovely, private space in this never sleeping city. In case we visit NY again (and I hope so) we´d keep taking her room again.
We really appreciated our stay in this appartment in Brooklyn. Yoki is very friendly, honest, and has a great sense of hospitality. In dazzling New York, this appartment was our quiet and peaceful heaven we could return to in the evening.
Yoki was very nice to us and the apartment is located in a perfect place, close to the subway, a supermarket and lots of other stores. We enjoyed our stay in Brooklyn at Yoki's place and recommend this room to other tourists like us, who need a quiet place where to rest after a day in the city.
