What more can I say? This is my NY home. Luckily I've been traveling here more often and therefore have been able to enjoy my trips that much more.
Extremely friendly host, Ron is the best host in NYC, go for it! The loft is quiet, cozy and very stylish, really recommend to go!
Fantastic experience. Ron is a warm and friendly host and his place is amazing (and his stovetop coffee is fantastic!). Very interesting architecture, great vibe and an amazing view. I attended a 2 day conference at the Javits center which was only 2 blocks away, it's a perfect walk from Penn Station as well.
I will definitely visit Ron again next time I'm staying in the city.
Stayed again! And every time I come to New York, this is where I stay. This is my home in New York, and Ron always makes me feel like I'm coming home. Can't say enough good things.
Un très agréable séjour dans ce loft magnifique, qui s'avère même plus grand que sur les photos.
L'accueil de RON est très chaleureux, il sait se faire très discret mais répond toujours présent lorsqu'on a besoin d'un conseil, d'un avis. Son café le matin est excellent et les discussions en soirées très sympatiques.
Merci de nous avoir permis de découvrir NYC en famille et sans stress.
I've been staying with Ron for 4 or 5 years now. His Manhattan Loft is my NY home and I always feel that way. Being greeted at the door with a smile and an espresso is priceless. As always, I enjoyed my time there, the skyline, the beautiful apartment and the best hospitality in NY.
Ron met us outside the buiding the evening we arrived, it felt like meeting a distant relative and it was very comfortable after crossing the atlantic ocean with our three young boys.
We all had an excellent stay in the loft, thanks to Ron and his priceless recommendations, hospitality and invaluable explanations during our week in NY.
