Tivemos uma experiência muito boa. Foi a primeira vez que viajamos através do Airbnb, estávamos um pouco reticentes, mas acabamos surpreendidos. O Carlos é super simpático, bastante discreto e atencioso. A casa é muito acolhedora e quentinha. Deixou-nos sempre à vontade. Deu-nos uns bons conselhos sobre onde ir passear e recomendou-nos alguns restaurantes. O Harlem é um bairro que à primeira impressão mete algum respeito, mas no final reparamos que é super tranquilo. Não tivemos nenhuma aventura desagradável, muito pelo contrário, as pessoas com quem falamos foram sempre bastante atenciosas e até foi agradável vermos como se vive num típico bairro de Nova Iorque. A linha do metro duas ruas abaixo também facilita muito a estadia. Falamos com o Carlos para atrasarmos o Check Out, e ele mostrou-se super disponível. Saímos da casa as 16h, o que nos permitiu poder aproveitar ao máximo o último dia da viagem. Recomendamos.
Carlos a été très accueillant, aimable et serviable.
Son appartement est comme décrit sur son profil, propre, moderne, fonctionnel.
Nous y avons passé un super séjour de 10 jours avec notre fils de 21 mois.
L'appartement est très bien situé, au calme, près de la 125th (commerces, restaurants), métro à 5 min à pied desservant la 42th en 10 min.
Un parc est juste à côté également.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Carlos's home for around one week, he was very nice. We didn't have much time to chat with him since we usually went home late, but Carlos was always there if we needed his help. The room was same as the pictures, cute and cozy. The little thing bothered me was the thin wall, we often heard the sound or music from the neighbor. But it was not a big problem, it was still quite in the mid night and early morning. BTW, this area was not so safe and Carlos' home was about three or four blocks from the subway, so if you are a women traveling by yourself, it would be better to go home early. In short, I had great experience at Carlos's home, I would recommend him !
I have lived in the area for 10 years now and never had any problem or feel unsafe, not any of my family or guest that I know.
I understand some people are not used to walk in areas with such a diversity like Harlem; but that, doesn't make it a dangerous area.
I'm surprised to hear that because the area is full of students from Columbia and CUNY and see girls by themselves at any time.
I'm glad you had a good time in NYC.
Wir hatten eine super Woche bei Carlos. Er ist freundlich und sehr offen, er hilft gerne weiter, wenn man z.B. Fragen bezüglich Restaurants oder der U-Bahn hat. Das Zimmer ist sehr schön eingerichtet und es war alles vorhanden, was man für den Urlaub braucht.
Harlem ist an sich eine schöne Gegend, nachts hat man manchmal ein komisches Gefühl, aber Probleme hatten wir dort nie.
Carlos is a very friendly and uncomplicated host. WE felt comfortable in the very beautiful room, which has everythings you need. The Subway is just a 5 minute walk away from the appartement. We strongly recommend this place!
The location of Carlos's apartment is in an older working class neighborhood. It is conveniently located near subway and bus stops. The bedroom has a closet with plenty of hangers and a large bureau. Carlos thoughtfully left refrigerator space for us in his fully equipped kitchen. He is friendly and well versed in what to do around NYC. We would gladly stay with him again.
J'ai à nouveau passé de merveilleux jours a Harlem chez Carlos. Tous était comme decrit! L'appartement situé a Manhattan uptown était très pratique pour atteindre tout les points d'attraction. Carlos est toujours à votre disposition pour toutes vos question concernant NYC Je le recommande à tous pour votre séjour!!!
