I booked De's apartment for a third party, so I cannot comment on the place itself, but I can say that De was very accomodating in the process leading up to reservation, which was particularly helpful given that I was a first time airbnb user and made a few mistakes! I really appreciated how understanding she was. Great host.
This was a great apartment and in an excellent location. We would stay here again!
la proprietaria è stata gentile
l'appartamento pulito ma mancante di alcune comodità
Ficamos hospedados 6 noites no apartamento da De. Fomos muito bem recebidos e tivemos todas as instruções fornecidas para nossa estadia. Haviam toalhas, roupa de cama, itens de higiene e também massas, águas, iogurtes e chocolates. A localização era excelente, em frente havia uma lavanderia, uma Rite Aid e ainda uma fruteira/mercado que oferecia café da manhã.
A estação de Subway era na esquina do apartamento, ficava a apenas 20min de Manhattan.
Há apenas alguns pontos que gostaríamos de salientar: as roupas de cama ainda estavam úmidas quando chegamos, tivemos que estender durante a tarde para poder usar a noite; e também, não é um local adequado para bebês. Não sabíamos disso quando locamos, apenas nos foi questionado se nosso bebê era muito agitado durante a noite. No entanto, durante nossa estadia recebemos algumas mensagens da De pedindo que tomássemos muito cuidado com o bebê para que o mesmo não fizesse barulho no apartamento para não importunar os vizinhos. Assim, tivemos que ser extremamente cautelosos durante nossa estadia para não termos maiores problemas. Por esse motivo, não recomendamos locação para famílias com crianças pequenas.
De toda forma, recomendamos o apartamento pois é muito bem localizado.
De is a wonderful host. She is super helpful and communicates very promptly. The apartment is comfortable and well stocked with everything you need for a pleasant stay. The subway station is one a block away, and 10-15 minutes from Manhattan. I loved the organic store at the corner, and there is a very cool wine bar a couple of blocks away (Winegasm). I really enjoyed my stay. Thanks, De.
De’s apartment is located in a quiet area and immediately appeared us roomy, bright and very clean. It is also very well equipped and the kitchen and bathroom have everything you would need to have during your stay.
The bed is large with a comfortable mattress and has helped us to restore after the jet lag and the long walks downtown Manhattan that you can easily reach by means of the frequent metro trains.
De was very helpful and gave us useful suggestion for restaurants and taxi to the airport.
Yes, we recommend staying in De’s apartment, especially if you would like to get some relax after the visit to the frenetic Manhattan.
Arrivederci in Italia
Lovely apartment which was described very accurately. Very clean and inviting. The bed had a very comfortable firm mattress. Plenty of linens, shampoo, soaps, etc. were also provided. De was kind enough to leave snacks, fresh juice, etc. for our enjoyment. The location is very handy, close proximity to La Guardia and a short subway ride into Manhattan. Astoria is a lovely area, somewhat quiet and much less chaotic than Manhattan. De was so accomodating, although we didn't meet her personally, our family members in the area handled all of the details of our arrival and departure. We did text with a question mid week and received a kind, detailed reply within a few minutes.
Overall, a very pleasant experience and we would not hesitate to rent from De again!
