About this listing
If you are looking to be close to The City(only 3 Subway Stops from Manhattan) and all its amazing landmarks --for an affordable price-- this is the place for you!! Mine is a small apartment in Astoria/Long Island City just 10 minutes from Manhattan.
You'll feel free at my home.
This room can be rented in conjunction with my other property to have the whole apartment at your disposition (calendar permitting).
Please keep in mind that you won't find a luxurious place, this is small, clean, comfortable apartment but "NOT A HOTEL".
Visitors are not allowed in the room, you can use the dining room for that.
You may have to share a bathroom with other guests (Max 2, usually couples). Depending if the other room is rented. So please be extremely mindful when using the bathroom time wise talking.
PLEASE CLEAN AFTER YOURSELF, nobody wants the "blue print" from other people, pick up your own hair in the bathtub and look after you when using the toilet. Leave the hand towel well placed.
I offer clean towels, sheets and products for personal hygiene, including body lotion and hair dryer.
I am very flexible with the time you check in and out,(sometimes depending on the arrival-departure of the other guests), but you can feel at home and you'll have your own set of keys to come and go as you please, finally New York is open for you 24 hours!
The subway lines R and M run 24 hours and are just 3 blocks away!
There are tons of good restaurants (718 Restaurant, Grand Cafe, Ovelia, Il Bambino) and bars near by like the Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden or the Studio Square Beer Garden, in one of the most famous neighborhoods in NY.
The museum of Moving Image is very close, the Kauffman Studios and the great Astoria Park with amazing views of the city. A lot of places to go shopping. Parking is easy. Long Island City with its satellite MOMA PS1 museum, the iconic Graffiti Five Points, and the water taxi are just 15 minutes away.
JFK airport is 20 minutes from home and LaGuardia just 10 by car! (traffic permitting).
No smoking at all, not even next to the windows, please.
Please be mindful with the time spend in the bathroom, since is a space shared with other guests. Clean after you, leave the restroom as you want to find it.
Be careful with the keys, the one for downstairs brakes easily and I will have to charge you to replace them.
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour chez Yusnier. La chambre était propre et fidèle aux photos. Nous partageions l'appartment avec un autre couple, ce qui ne nous à pas posé de problèmes. La localisation était parfaite pour visiter New York à seulement 4 stations de Manhattan. Yusnier à su se rendre disponible à tout moment par téléphone. Si nous devions revenir à New York, nous reviendrions sans hésiter au regard du très bon rapport/qualité prix.
We got a good traveldescription to go from JFK to the apt.
Also the description to enter the apt was good.
We had a very nice stay, the apt might not be big but it sure is cosey.
Astoria is a nice and friendly neighbourhood, there's an Sub at 5minutes away from the apt with a direct transportation to Times Sqaure, Grand Central, Battery Park...
We hope to stay there in the future ;)
Logement correspondant au descriptif, même si un peu vétuste. Localisation pratique, proche du métro et des commerces.
Yusnier est très réactif et répond vite aux mails.
Petit bémol : contrairement à ce qui est dit dans l'annonce, les heures de check in et check out ne sont pas du tout flexibles.
Yusnier made us feel welcome even before arriving at the apartment through his emails. He provided all the information we needed in a clear and concise manner, and replied to our questions quickly. I didn't get to meet him, but I did meet his girlfriend. She was really nice and helpful. The apartment was clean, and we found the location to be great. It's not far from the subway, and there are many great restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance. The subway that goes by there made it easy to get to/from most of the places we visited in Manhattan, and it's also easy to get to/from JFK. Last time we were in NYC, we stayed in Manhattan. I was worried that staying in Queens this time would be inconvenient, but it wasn't at all. It took pretty much the same amount of time to get to/from everywhere we wanted to go and we saved a lot of $. Plus, it's much quieter than a place in the city, so we were able to sleep-in and rest well. It was a great, authentic experience!
Yusnier's apartment was so close to everything (in the heart of Astoria). You have everything you need within walking distance. His apartment was easy to get to from the train stops as well.
We stayed in the smaller bedroom. The wifi was super fast and everything was clean. We were also provided with clean towels and an iron.
On a side note, he wasn't in to assist us, but he was kind enough to provide other contact info, for any emergencies.
The only downside was that we were stuck having to take train rides from the city to Astoria, as the trains are rerouted and were not making local stops.
Thank you Yusnier!
The apartment was cute and a great location. Quick walk to subway and lots of places to eat and bars within walking distance. Yusnier was always very quick to reply to my questions and very nice.
Yusnier was very quick to reply and very helpful. Everything was where it was supposed to be as described in the listings and his directions to get to the apartment. The picture shows exactly what the room appears to be and everything was very comfortable. All the basic needs were amply provided and every questions was answered quickly.
