Interaction with Guests
I work late and often so sometimes my guests don't even know I am there. If they need something I am always a phone call, email or text message away. I live in the other bedroom that has its own bathroom so my guests get plenty of privacy in their own bedroom and bathroom.
This neighborhood is quiet and has everything you need with plenty of bars and great restaurants just blocks away. There are running trails along the river and over the bridges into Manhattan. The subway is a few blocks away and can take you to Times Square in only 25 minutes.
There are plenty of buses and the subway to take you anywhere you want to go, as well as taxi thoroughfare straight into Manhattan. Plenty of parking if you have a car or rental car. You can take the subway from JFK airport ($65 by taxi) or the bus and subway from LaGuardia ($10 by taxi) airport or the NJ Trainsit and subway from Newark airport ($85 taxi).
Other Things to Note
I am an amazing host. Just read my reviews. I go out of my way to make my gusts feel welcome and make sure they have a great NYC experience.
Each room has a dedicated heating and air conditioning unit. These units use up a lot of energy so if you are not in the room please turn them off. Keeping the curtains closed and using the fan to circulate air tends to cool of the room quickly as well.
Professional cleaners come every two weeks to clean entire apartment and spare bedroom (this cost is included in rent).
No smoking in room, but smoking on the balcony outside the living room is permitted as long as windows are closed and no butts are left outside.
Two sets of keys are available. Fresh towels and sheets will be supplied. Coin operated laundry machines are in basement as well as extra storage space if needed. Elevators service all floors. Please no drugs or late night parties. Thank you.
Michael is one of the reason why airbnb is such a great travel experience. The room is fits the description perfectly, is clean and you will have your own bathroom. The flat is very comfortably located and the area is hip and has everything you'll need. Michael is a great host and helps you with all your questions and needs. If I return to NYC one day, I will definitely look for Michael's place.
Michael was very nice to us during our stay.
We didn't see him a lot as we were always out, visiting.
The few times we had time to speak with him, it was a pleasure.
We felt like we were at home and we would recommend this place for everyone.
Thank you Michael,
We hope to see you again one day !
Die Eltern meines Freundes haben sich total willkommen gefühlt! Vielen lieben Dank dafür Michael. Du hast immer sicher gestellt, dass sie sich wohl fühlen, standest vorher immer in Kontakt mit uns und warst stets hilfsbereit. Daher würden sie jedem einen Aufenthalt bei Michael empfehlen! Ein toller Gastgeber!
Wenn man einen entspannten und netten Aufenthalt in New York verbringen möchte, dann ist man bei Michael genau richtig. Das Zimmer und das Bad waren sehr gepflegt und sauber. Michael ist sehr hilfsbereit und hatte stets ein offenes Ohr für alle Fragen. Alles in allem ist diese Unterkunft sehr weiterzuempfehlen.
I can't even describe how was to be hosted by Michael.
Michael is the best airbnb host. He answered all the questions very quickly. He was very kind, gracious, and hospitable. When we arrived at NYC he was already waiting for us. The place has an amazing location. It's not in the middle of Manhatan but is not too far away.
Very nice and quiet place with everything you need. Lots I'd eat placec around, good public transportation and safe place. You can explore history of music, play piano or just watch tv. And if you lucky you will meet Michael. If not, maybe you meet Leah. Worth being there.
hola! he leido otras evaluaciones de Michael y creo que son exactamente asi de buenas, Michael es una maravillosa persona y lamento no hablar ingles y que él hable español porque creo que es una persona con muchos conocimientos para poder orientar al turista en New York, el departamento es mejor de lo que imaginé y la zona muy tranquila y segura,el subway me llevaba a los lugares que tenia pensado ir,espero no haberle causado alguna molestia ya que yo llegaba siempre muy tarde desde Manhatan y no todos pueden recibir pasajeros en su casa que esta cuidada con mucho cariño y poner a disposición todas las cosas para que nos encontremos como en nuestra casa, GRACIAS MICHAEL !! UN FUERTE ABRAZO ! Y SIN DUDAS RECOMENDARÉ A MIS AMISTADES ESTA POSIBILIDAD DE ALOJARSE EN NEW YORK.
