Phyl made my friend and I feel extremely welcome throughout our stay. He was quick to reply to all of my messages, was extremely organised and provided a very friendly environment for our stay in New York City. He was keen to give advice on where to eat and go out in Williamsburg, and was always striving to make us feel at home. The apartment is in a fantastic location, right in the heart of Williamsburg on the main street. The highlight of the place for me was the wonderful balcony where you can see the empire state building night and day. The bedrooms are very comfortable, the main living area and kitchen is extremely spacious and clean. It is only one metro stop from Manhattan and (in my opinion) is probably a better bet than staying in Manhattan as it is far more spacious than any airbnb room you would be able to get in the main city for the same price. We found it convenient at all times of the day. Would absolutely stay there again without question, I cannot recommend it highly enough.
