  • The flat is very conveniently located and in a quiet area of New York. Just 3 minutes walk from the tube station that will take you to the center in 15 minutes.
    Amy is a great host and she helped us whenever we needed something.

  • Amy was a great hostess. She and her brother were very kind. The place was ready for us although we arrived a little a little bit early and she had left a couple of beers as a "welcome". Nobody does that nowadays.
    Nice apartment in a very nice neighborhood. Subway was only 2 blocks away so we could be in midtown in less than 20 minutes.
    I'd definitely recommend to stay at Amy's place and I will when I return to NY. Thanks for everything!

  • It was my first time using airbnb and it was great! This was like a home away from home. The appartment looks just like the pictures and we loved it! Also Amy and here brother were great hosts. We got all the information we needed from Amy before our arrival and also during our stay. She was very helpful and responded quickly to our emails. The area was great with subway and bus to downtown just outside the door. We used public transportaion our whole stay witch was seven days and it was very easy. I would definetly recomend staying at Amys place. If you find an open spot in the calender dont hesitate!

  • Amy is a great host. We were bumped off our flights and arrived very late but she was very flexible with the chek-in. Her brother and niece live in the same building so there's pretty much always someone at hand. Flat is very nice, ideally located 3 blocks from the gorgeous Central Park, and 300m from the subway #6 which takes you anywhere. She knows NY inside out so her recommendations were perfect. She's also very responsive, at anytime, which is really appreciated. Finally, she listened to the tracks I sent her and liked them, which makes her a very cool and respectable lady :). We highly recommend booking her flat for your trip to NY.

  • Our stay at Amy's apartment was absolutely wonderful. As soon as I booked, Amy was in contact to ask if we had any questions about New York and during our stay she checked in many times to make sure everything was going smoothly and there was nothing we needed. It was so lovely to end our trip in a home away from home, and so close to everything you would want to see in New York. Central Park is only three blocks away, the subway two blocks away that will have you downtown in 15 minutes max.
    The neighborhood is really cool too - perfectly safe and more of an authentic New York atmosphere. We came home very late at night by subway on a few occasions and never once felt unsafe.
    Amy was super flexible with check in/check out and even let us hang around after we had checked out to wait for our shuttle to the airport.
    Oh! And you can't go past the kuerig coffee machine and all the goodies Amy leaves for her guests. It was so great to arrive to beer in the fridge and chips on the table after a long day traveling.
    Amy's apartment is an oasis in a big city, which can be very hard to find. Amy goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is as enjoyable as can be and our trip was definitely made by ending in such a fantastic place - thank you Amy!!

  • We stayed in Amy's apartment for 10 days and it was lovely! Amy was an outstanding host giving us all the information we needed! On arrival there was even a basket of snacks like bananas and chips it really felt like home! She went above and above organizing dinner reservations and taxi services for us! It was a very clean apartment in a very convenient location with only a 2 min walk to the subway! We thank amy for her amazing hospitality and would recommend staying here to anyone looking for an apartment in ny!

  • I stayed at Amy's with a friend of mine from Monday through Saturday.
    Everything was perfect from the moment we booked. Amy is very attentive and gives feedback to any questions. From the beginning on, she made our stay an amazing experience - flexible to our arrival and leaving times, supportive in finding cabs to the airport, giving information around the neighbourhood (just a hint, the french bakery around the corner is amazing!!!).

    The apartment itself is amazing. Welcoming atmosphere, very comfortable but still individually chic. We loved every minute of our stay there.
    The bed is so comfy - perfect for recharging energy to explore the best city.
    You just have to love the bathroom and the rain-shower!

    The location was great, very easy to get to via 6 train and short distances to any location.

    We had a great time in NYC and we will be back for sure.
    Hope Amy will have us then again :)
    Thanks!

  • Our stay at Amy's place was very nice! The place is lovely, plus Amy is a super responsive and helpful host. Since it's located in Spanish Harlem, it's quite a walk into the heart of downtown, but if you do the strolling from the park (Central Park), the sight is worth the walk.

    Also, there is a metro station only two blocks away from the apartment, so overall the commute is very quick. We loved our trip!
