We really liked staying at Oresres' place, it's clean, comfortable and very cosy. The room is spacious and has all what you need including a few extras like a mini fridge, a microwave and a filter coffee machine. The bathroom is superb, very nicely designed and the shower is something to look forward to after a long hot New York day. The apartment also features a great outdoors terrace that Orestes is kind enough to allow access, and while he wasn't around during our stay, our host Gabriela was very welcoming and made sure our stay was comfortable and allowed for our privacy.
The location is excellent, only one stop away from Manhattan with the subway station around the block. The area itself boasts a number of attractions and a few good restaurants.
This will definitely be our preferred place to stay whenever we visit NYC.
Orestes a été accueillant et sympathique. La chambre était parfaite et la salle de bain privative est un plus . Nous nous sommes sentis comme chez nous. Le logement est très bien situé: métro, restaurants et supermarché sont à 2 pas. Nous recommandons sans hésiter la chambre d'Orestes!
An very nice place with an very spacius bathroom. The shower was very interesting.
It´s very clean and the connection to manhattan was very good.
Orestes is an very kind host and very helpful.
It was very nice to use the garden for our morning coffee and breakfast.
We had a great stay here for 6 nights.
I would recommend this place for everyone.
Orestes thanks for your help.
I think it´s not our last time here :-)
Really nice place and in a great location. We were booked to be in a room on the basement level but for our first night we stayed upstairs as the previous guests had to stay another night. That was fine with us, the upstairs room was a good size, comfy bed and a huge shower in the bathroom. The next day we did move to our downstairs room and just as nice. Good sized, comfortable bed, TV in the room, a sofa and a small fridge. Bathroom was awesome. Large shower area.
This airbnb is less than 5 minutes to a subway stop that takes you right into Manhattan. Also just as close to a grocery store and several restaurants many of which are the fine dining type.
Orestes left for the weekend we were there but Christian was there and was very helpful and accommodating. We loved their dog Kiki. Very friendly and quiet. We would definitely go back to this airbnb.
Nous avons passé une très agréable séjour chez Orestes. La chambre est spacieuse et bien équipée. De plus cet hébergement est situé dans un quartier très calme et très bien situé : à quelques minutes de Manhattan, à deux pas de plusieurs lignes de métro (E, M, G, 7) desservant directement les principaux sites touristiques de Manhattan (E, M, 7), l'aéroport JFK (E) et à proximité d'un supermarché et d'un dinner typique.
L'accueil d'Orestes était très agréable et nous recommandons donc cet hébergement sans hésitation.
yes Orestes was very pleasant , the room was most comfortable with the AC being very welcome. The bathroom was spacious with a lovely shower.
The neighbourhood is great with many restaurants and shops around. Nice location to the East River beautiful vistas and access to Brooklyn and Manhatten by ferry . easy to get to the two Metro stations.
This place is a gem in the artist community of Long Island City! Thank you, Orestes, for making our stay a truly memorable one!
About the Host, Orestes
I enjoy NYC tremendously but love traveling and have visited
over 40 countries. My house is filled with artwork from those travels.
I work my design business from my home studio, in a restored 1890 landmark townhouse with all the modern amenities.
My house has been used for filming scenes for Sex & The City, The Sopranos, Gossip Girl & White Collar.
My photography column,"Orestes'LIC", appears every month in the local paper.
I love Asian, Spanish & Cuban food, along with a good bottle of red wine.
Talking about travel, art, design and photograph,is my favorite pastime. Sorry,I dont shop or know where the best electronics bargains are located !
I love giving great walking tour information of different parts of NYC, and info on non-touristy places to eat real food in the area.
I will provide you the privacy level you require to make your stay here is as comfortable as possible.
Enjoy a great, clean, stylish place to stay, only 7 minutes from Manhattan!
