This airb&b was great. No complaints. It was the perfect location and the price was awesome. I was nervous because it was my first time using airb&b, but after this, I would use it every time I travel. The place was very clean and tidy. I also felt very safe staying there and there was no outside noise whatsoever.
My review is based on the cost per room:
Location 5 stars--I loved this location as it was only a few blocks from Penn Station, and the subway line. There were also many local shops, restaurants and even a grocery store nearby.
Customer Service 5 stars--our host, Jon, was very easy to work with and communicated with us throughout our trip. For example, I had inquired about a subway map and he had Angela, the person who let us in brought one.
Ease of check-in and check-out, 5 stars--Jon had Angela meet us at the apartment and he gave us clear directions on how to get to the apartment. Angela was at the apartment waiting for us when we arrived. Departure was just as simple.
Noise--5 stars. Located on the 7th floor so there was no street noise. We never heard our neighbors, in fact the apartment didn't have any connecting walls with neighbors.
Cleanliness--4 stars. Although it was clear that the towels were clean and freshly washed, the shower had mildew in it. When we arrived there was a strong mildew scent, but I think it came from the towels as many were still damp from the washing.
Appearance--4 stars. The apartment is very large for a NY studio, and although the outside was very well kept up, the apartment needed some work, including some updated furniture.
Overall we were pleased with our stay. My husband says his expectations were exceeded.
The apartment is in a nice neighborhood and just a short 2 block walk to the Penn Station subway. The apartment was as nice as pictured and described. Jon was wonderful to work with, communicated quickly, and even allowed us to check in a little early. He gave wonderful suggestions about what to visit and even had a few goodies awaiting us in the refrigerator. Awesome experience!
Though away for business, Jon was a wonderful host from the time I booked until after I departed. Offering help on anything and replying very quickly always. I did not get into NYC until almost midnight and his caretaker Angela (she does a wonderful job and is very kind) was in the room ready to show me the place and answer any questions that I had about anything. Also stoking the fridge with juice, milk, cremates and bagels was a lovely touch that I found remarkably generous.
The residence itself was perfect for me. The plants, desk space, water pitcher, and really everything else made it really feel like home away from home for me (only things missing were my pups who were still at home ;) )
The location could not have been more convenient! You look out your window and seed Madison Square Garden yet it is totally quiet at all hours of the day and night which is perfect for work and sleep! This NYC oasis is definitely on my list to stay again when I get back to the city. Thanks so much for everything Jon and Angela and I will bug you next time I am up that way!
surprisingly large flat for NYC in quiet but convenient area. Jon was very helpful, accommodated my very last minute change of plan kindly.
Jon's apartment was very clean, comfortable and very conveniently located to Penn station and Madison square garden. There were no problems gaining entry and getting the keys and Jon was in contact via text message throughout the visit to ensure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here!
