Interaction with guests

I'll usually be around to make sure you settle in nicely and greet you :) if not I have simple instructions for a lockbox with keys in the building for self check in.

Other things to note

This is an original apt in a true pre-war Brooklyn building they don't make them like this anymore unfortunately so you'll have real beautiful hardwood floors and high ceilings with original details and solid walls with lots of light and space, these kinds of places can and do come with some light wear and tear of course but that's what gives it its charm, so if you're looking for a cookie cutter brand spanking new squeaky clean condo like space this is not the place for you :)

Absolutely lovely, with amazing decor. Apartment set in a Brooklyn neighbourhood. Very accessible to public transport and some nice cafes/restaurants around the area. Very good value and good location for a break in New York.

Ala was very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The apartment was great and situated in an ideal location in Brooklyn. We loved exploring the local area and the subway to Manhattan was really easy. We had to carry our bags around on the last day as we couldn't find anywhere nearby to store them. So my advice would be to bear this in mind when booking flights (which Ala does mention on her page but we clearly didn't pay enough notice of!). x

Response from Ala:
Thank you Rachael! :) As I've mentioned in my emails in addition to info on the listing about that, the nearest bag storage for anyone curious or interested would be near Penn Station, 34th ST in the city, which is nearby with the subway of course ;) A quick 30 min subway ride to be exact. The C train is 6 blocks away from the apt, which would take you there and the bag storage facility I recommended (there are quite a few in that area) is less than a block away when you arrive to the stop. It's also super cheap and near all main public transportation as well as cabs to airports, with flat rates to JFK. Hopefully there will be one in Clinton Hill very soon I hope! All my best, xx -A

I can't recommend this place highly enough. Ala's beautiful apartment was the perfect base in Brooklyn and Ala was a fabulous host, responding quickly to queries and questions we had during our stay. The apartment itself is incredible, full of charm and personality - so much better than a hotel as it makes you feel like you're living the New York life. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer and just spend some time relaxing in this beautiful space. Thanks so much!
