    L'appartement bien qu'en sous sol est agrable. Dommage que la jolie terrasse ne bnficie pas d'clairage . Accueil trs sympathique. 28 September 2017 - 02:22:00

    We totally enjoyed our stay at the reading room suite. It was impeccably clean, and extremely well equipped. It was exactly as pictured - very nicely updated. The block we were on was beautiful and we felt perfectly safe walking the 5 minutes to and from the A/C line subway stop even late at night. Inside the apartment, we had bottled water, laundry detergent, dishes, a hair dryer and flat iron, first aid items, clean linens (and plenty of them!), books and board games for all ages - everything we needed to make our stay a breeze. The huge patio was fantastic! Jason was incredibly hospitable- he met us when we arrived and helped us carry our luggage in. One night we texted him to ask where we could get some wine and bottled water and he brought it to us, we didn't even have to go out! Just as an FYI, as it is a basement apartment, if you are a tall person, you will need to duck walking up and down the stairs in and out of the apartment. But that's 10 seconds out of your day, and the ceilings inside the apartment are quiet high and the apartment doesn't feel small or closed-in at all. We would definitely stay here again! 20 July 2017 - 01:59:00

    We loved this home and we will be back. It was very comfortable and large enough for my whole family. The beds and bedding were of good quality. We felt safe and very relaxed. Very close to the A train about a 3minute walk. The host gave us a map and great instructions on how to get around and find things. Loved the patio. There is a grocery store 2 blocks away which we used to prepare a full breakfast and dinner. Loved it there! Thanks Jason and Mom for making our stay great! 20 July 2017 - 11:20:00

    Recently, my party of 5 girls stayed in this lovely home for 4 nights. It was perfect for our group. It is exactly as pictured, is in a great location with easy, easy access to the express train into Manhattan. It was quite spacious for New York and Jason was very attentive to our needs. You have a refrigerator for all of the tasty foods you will want to buy and a washer and dryer so you can limit the number of clothes you need to bring. We definitely plan to return on our next visit. 24 March 2014 - 19:49:08

    Just returned from two weeks staying in this apartment with our family of 5. This apartment was an excellent choice for our stay in New York City. The apartment is exactly as advertised - clean, spacious and very well equipped with excellent air conditioning and wi fi. The washing machine and drier were very useful - especially if you're traveling with kids. Jason and his family are very welcoming and helpful. The neighborhood was very safe and the local people were very friendly. The apartment is very well located very close to the subway station with access to the A train get you into Manhattan in about 20 mins. Going in the other direction the A train will get you to Rockaway beach in about 35/40 mins. There are several good places (Peaches, Saraghina, Emeline's, Daddy Green's pizza) to eat in the local neighborhood as well as in areas like Smith St, Brooklyn Heights which are only a few stops away on the subway. If you have the time I recommend you read one of the books by Elizabeth Nunez (Jason's mother), there are several in the apartment and really worth reading. This apartment is a really good choice as you can access all of the major sites whilst still experiencing living in a real neighborhood. Highly recommended. Thanks, Jason!

    We were in Jason`s apartment 6 full days. Being a family of 5 were really comfortable. The apartment is very close to the subway, which allowed us to manage easily to explore the city. It`s fully equipped (even with soap for washing machine, for example), spacious and really comfortable. A special mention for the generosity and kindness of Jason and his mother, who were always watching us and our consultations, as well as some details of care and remarkable generosity. Widely recommended. Surely we will be back sometime Jason. 19 February 2016 - 13:24:37

    My stay at the reading room exceeded my expectations. The property has the details you will find in any European capital. The exquisite details and Architectural flair gives one the impression of charming library along the Thames river in London. I would recommend staying here for any family that loves a cultured environment while thriving in an energetic city. The staff and owner has exceptional attention to detail while providing the warmth a weary traveler would need after a long trip. Exceptional Value for this modern boutique hotel 20 May 2017 - 14:54:00

    It's in a basement, without windows in the common area with the hideabed, so it's easy to oversleep! Helpful and friendly hosts. Good value. 07 November 2017 - 01:19:00

    Jason was awesome! He meet us and gave us some pointers for our stay. He even called me on the 2nd day just to check on us. We will definitely be back. 23 October 2017 - 22:17:00

    Hello, Stayed from Oct. 24 -31 2017. Family of six . Children 15 , 11 and 8 . We really appreciated coming home to Brooklyn after being in Manhattan all day running around. There is a great convinience store just a block away and an Italiann bakery near by great for coffee. Jason was awesome !! The house has everything you need . AC .. a lot of towels and is just great overall ..We totally recommend it . We were visiting from Mexico and enjoyed getting a feel of the normal life in Brooklyn did some really good shoping in Brooklyn too. Thank you Jason for everything. 01 November 2017 - 02:03:00

    Unit is very modern and clean, and has amenities to make your stay very enjoyable. The property managers are very nice and go out of there way to help with anything you may need. 16 October 2017 - 23:09:00

    The property was great. Very spacious. Very comfortable. We were right by a subway stop so getting into the city was easy. Had to search a bit for parking and keep an eye depending on the day, but we did ok. Jason was awesome. Very friendly and helpful. He met with us when we got there and showed us how to get into the city with the subway. He had a map of NYC so we could see different trains. It was a great stay and would love to go back. 05 October 2017 - 20:05:00

    Awesome apartment, safe neighborhood, great weekend. Jason is wonderful and was very responsive to our every need. We have been to New York a lot, but never stayed in Brooklyn. The apartment is one block from the subway and a short trip in to the city. Every amenity you could ever want is here. You can pack light and shop more. 01 October 2017 - 12:46:00

    Die Wohnung ist wirklich sehr liebevoll und ansprechend eingerichtet. Der Sitzplatz drauen ist herrlich, dort kann man den Tag ruhig starten und schn ausklingen lassen. Einzige Verbesserungsvorschlge wren ein groer Kochtopf und bequemere Rollbetten. Ansonsten alles super!!! 04 August 2017 - 13:54:00

    Wir waren mehr als beschreiblich zufrieden, durften persnlichen Kontakt zu unseren Gastgebern genieen. Mit Geld sind die erlebten Erfahrungen nicht zu bezahlen. Es ist die menschliche Aufmerksamkeit welche uns auerordentlich gefallen hat. Ich habe das Gefhl dass wir Freunde geworden sind. Es ist eine Auszeit zu hektischen Stadt und wunderbar sich nachdem tglichen Eindrcken nachhause zu kommen. Ich kann mir nichts schneres vorstellen vor allem die Offenheit die Selbstverstndlichkeit der Nutzung der Resoucen wie Waschmaschine oder des Innenhofes. Ich wrde immer wieder bei Jason buchen. Und seine Mutter ist groartig und hat Ihr Herz am richtigen Fleck 02 August 2017 - 20:31:00

    Nous avons pass un excellent sjour dans cet appartement ! Il est exactement comme sur les photos mais en plus grand ! Un vrai luxe new-york ! L'appartement tait trs propre, la douche trs grande et il y a la possibilit de faire tourner une machine pour laver son linge ! Nous n'avons pas utilis l'extrieur car nous partions tt et rentrions tard mais la terrasse est vraiment grande. La wifi fonctionnait parfaitement (mme 5 le soir !). Jason et sa maman sont adorables et disponibles pour rpondre toutes vos questions ! Le quartier est trs calme, ce qu'on apprcie aprs une journe Manhattan .... Nous sommes parfois rentrs trs tard et nous n'avons jamais eu aucun problme (le mtro est trs sr, la station et le quartier aussi). La station de mtro est moins de 2 minutes pied. Il faut peine 20 minutes pour tre au coeur de Manhattan avec la ligne A. Nous avons trouv cela trs bien. Il y a plusieurs petits deli o faire ses courses proximit, avec des prix tout a fait abordables pour NYC ! Nous tions 5 dont 3 ados et recommandons vraiment cette location! Si nous devions revenir NY, nous reviendrons coup sr dans l'appartement de Jason ! Merci Jason et sa maman pour leur accueil ! 14 August 2017 - 13:55:00

    My best friend and I took our 17 year old sons to their first trip to NYC!! I somehow stumbled on this little gem of a place!!! This place is perfect! The apartment was clean, had everything we needed, the beds were all comfortable. Jason was a wonderful host! We were literally 2 minutes from the train station. We hopped right on it early every morning and didn't return until late most nights. We always felt safe. 18 January 2018 - 21:45:00

    Our family traveled to New York for a week we billed as Christmas and comedy! It was all we hoped it would be, made possible in part because of our wonderful accommodations. The Reading Room Suite is just as billed--clean, spacious and convenient. One block form the A train makes going into Manhattan a breeze, regardless of the time of day. The neighborhood is quiet and welcoming. While we didn't dine in the area for dinner, we do highly recommend both Peaches and Emmaline's for brunch/breakfast. Jason was a wonderful host, gracious with his time and information. We will definitely be staying here again when we next return to NYC! 20 December 2017 - 19:42:00

    We billed our trip to NYC as "Christmas and Comedy." The Reading Room Suite was just the perfect home base for our activities. The A Train is one block a way and a quick trip into Manhattan, where we took in all the sites, improv, standup comedy, Macy's windows, NBC, 30 Rock, and its Christmas tree. The Bed-Stuy neighborhood is peaceful and we always felt safe. Had wonderful meals at Peaches and Emmeline's. The suite is just as described and pictured. Jason is a wonderful host, gracious with his time and information. We look forward to our next chance to visit NYC and stay at the Reading Room Suite! 28 December 2017 - 15:40:00
