The apartment was very clean upon our arrival. Emma provided clean towels & linens, and most kitchen amenities that are needed for a comfortable long-term stay. We did however, find it difficult to get settled without a dresser. There have been a few problems during our stay which we did not expect, but Emma was quick to have someone assess the issues. The location is great - just a block from the subway and a block from 5th ave which offers a wide variety of cuisine and bars. Street parking is not too difficult, however, beware of street sweeping two times per week. Overall, we have had a comfortable stay in this safe, cozy apartment and would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in Brooklyn.
