Very nice apartment with a wonderful view to NYC (from our windows and especially from to ROOF !)
Everythings around are also very nice (the neighborhood, attractions around, very quiet place)
Ankur was a lovely host even if we didn't find the time to see him a lot during our 3 days at NYC. He was very gentle and make everything necessary for our pleasure.
We travelled with our son and Ankur appartment is very well equiped (toys from his son, kids bed, etc.)
Ankur was a good host. His place was clean and comfortable. The room guests stay in is his children's room - when they are out of town. He takes all their personal items and puts them in a closet - so the room is open with a view of the Hudson River.
The location is good - several blocks from public transportation and somewhat removed from the hectic pace of the city life. Right outside the door is a park along the Hudson River. At the end of the block is a "city bike" station which is very convenient.
During the time we were there it was hot outside - and I would have preferred to leave the air conditioning on low all the time - but Ankur prefers to not be "fuel-ish" and to keep the air off - except for when it is needed. His wifi worked fine and the living room is comfortable.
Because I was with my wife and we were out most of the time we did not spend a lot of time with Ankur and he was friendly and willing to share ideas and make suggestions.
I would stay here again - although my wife as it turns out prefers more privacy - even if it is a little more expensive.
The bed was comfortable and the building where Ankur lives has a marvelous roof deck that almost no one uses - WE DID - and greatly enjoyed having the roof deck almost entirely to ourselves most of the time and views from the roof.
I hope this helps.
My stay at Ankur's place was very comfortable. The room was clean along with the bathroom. Ankur was very friendly and communicated with me each and every way. The bed was so comfortable and I slept like a baby. I definitely recommend Ankur's place. The area is very safe and the views are phenomenal. You can go to the Solarium and get a beautiful view of NYC. The apartment is a few blocks from the subway but not a bad walk and Duane Reade shopping center is only a short walk away.
Ankur was the best!!! He is really nice and a great host!!
His apartment is very comfortable and has an amazing view. Next to the river and you can go to the solarium on top and u ll find a great view as well.
The area is really quiet,very close to Soho, perfect to relax and walk everywhere.
Everything was perfect and he was really helpfulll!!
THANKS A LOT FOR HOSTING US! hope we can go back and stay at ur place again!!
Amazing appartment (shiny and quiet), in a luxury building, in a rich corner of New York. There are a bathroom near your room and you don't have to share it with your host. We were three people and your host acommodated us by adding a confortable airbed in the bedroom. The view is incredible from all the place of the appartment. And the top-roof has chairs, sleeping chair, tables, coach and a 360° amazing view on New York (no need to pay and wait on line at the Empire State building). The Whole Food (email hidden) walk is very useful to eat because is open until 11 pm. Every morning, we went to the bakery 'Le Pain Quotidien" (5 mm walk) to buy some bread and we ate our breakfast in the appartment (Ankur left early to go work). We used Ankur's fridge to put some dairy. So everything were fine, wonderful place to stay. Thank you Ankur.
Thanks Ankur for a great home base for our trip to New York! The use of your apartment was great and your hospitality was impeccable. We couldn't have had a better experience for our first trip to New York. The apartment was walking distance to many sights that we wanted to see, from the Staten Island Ferry to the Brooklyn Bridge. Anything that was further we took the subway which was a short walk from the apartment. The doormen were very nice and the view from the room was fantastic! If you stay here, you must go up to the Solarium! What a gorgeous view of the city! And the sofa bed was the most comfortable sofa bed I have ever slept on! Who knew! We would stay again in an instant!
Nous avons passé un super séjour chez Ankur! Nous avons été conquis dès notre entrée dans l'appartement qui possède l'incroyable avantage d'avoir une vue imprenable sur l'Hudson river et l'Empire state Building... Et si vous vous penchez un peu, vous devinerez la statue de la liberté au loin! De plus, l'appartement est situé dans une très belle résidence avec terrasse accessible sur le toit, le tout à moins de 10mn de marche d'une station de métro très bien desservie. La chambre est très spacieuse et confortable et le matelas à air fourni pour la 3ème personne est également parfait! Ankur est tout à fait charmant et soucieux du bien-être de ses hôtes. Il a pu nous acceuillir à 8h le matin pour déposer nos valises nous permettant de profiter pleinement de notre premier jour. Je recommande vivement et avec grand plaisir cet appartement et son propriétaire!
