We spent 5 nights in this place. The rooms were fancy and comfortable. The location was good because there were a lot of places to go like supermarkets, restaurants and safe enough near this place. Also it was not so far from Manhattan. Mitty was extremely kind to us even though we could see him only a short time. Apparently, we spent a wonderful time in NYC thanks to him and his family. I strongly recommend this place to anyone!

Mittys home is in a great location in Brooklyn close to plenty of transit, restaurants, Prospect Park, and the nexus of great Brooklyn neighborhoods. I would say the bed was also comfortable which for me is one of the highest priorities wherever I stay. My partner and I also had we had plenty of privacy for a shared house. My only sizable issue was the lack of closet space provided which was very minimal. He did apologize for this but it would still have been nice to have a few shelves to put things in/on. Also the lighting in the room could be a bit improved. It was unseasonable very hot the first few days we were there (90f) so it was warm in our room but it was not unbearable. 99% of time I expect the temps in room to be no issue. Overall the home provides a good value anyone who wants to explore Brooklyn.

Thanks James! Glad you appreciated the great location, top quality bed, & privacy. The big walk-in closet offers plenty of hanging space but indeed, some drawer space will be made available in the future, as well as another lamp & fans (of which we have plenty; just didn't expect this untimely heat). Okay, take care & happy to host you again.

Our time at Mitty's was great. We stayed at master bedroom for four nights. He was very kind and helpful. The location of the house is perfect and pretty much you can get to any subway line within a short walking distance. Also, it is very close to some of the great Brooklyn neighborhoods. The half bathroom in the bedroom was not that usable since there is only a curtain separating it from the bedroom. There were other guest in house during the stay but we did not have any problem to get to use the main bathroom. The bed was super comfortable and at night the street was quite. Thanks Mitty!

We had a great time in Brooklyn staying at Mitty's place. It's a super convenient location with easy access to trains, the park, and some great shops and restaurants. Unfortunately we weren't able to meet Mithy as he was out of town, but he was super responsive to emails.

Mitty was an excellent, welcoming host. He shared a lot of advice about places to visit in the neighbourhood, made us feel very welcome in his home, and I found every conversation we had both compelling and interesting. The room was an excellent size, had great light, was beautifully decorated and was very comfortable. The bathroom was spotless, and the shower was strong and well heated. The neighbourhood was also excellent. The house is close to a street full of interesting cafes and restaurants, and is a very short walk away from an enormous park. I felt safe, comfortable, well connected to the subway, and very content staying at Mitty's.
