Un perfecto apartamento para nuestra primera visita a NYC, el apartamento está muy bien situado y perfectamente comunicado con el metro, con varias estaciones y lineas cerca.
El apartamento también es muy tranquilo ya que la habitación no da a la calle y tampoco hay ruido de los vecinos.
No conocimos a Gene personalmente, pero un amigo suyo nos esperaba en el apartamento para darnos las llaves, para salir dejamos sin problema las llaves una lavanderia que Gene nos habia indicado.
Tuvimos problemas con la TV y con internet que funcionaba a medias, Gene intentó solucionarlo a distancia pero no fue posible. Entiendo que fue un problema puntual ya que no había leído nada acerca de esto. Gene se interesó cada dia por si funcionaba, pero al final fue que no.
A pesar de esto, es una muy buena opción para cuando volvamos a NYC.
Overall experience more than exceeded our expectations. Thank you Gene for hosting and making our stay in New York for the 10days comfortable.
Abt Gene's place:
1. On ground floor hence no need to walk up/down with heavy luggages.
2. No in-house washing/drying machines but self service laundry shops are 2/3 minutes walk away. One on 2nd avenue opens from 7.30am and close late at 9-ish.
3. Food Emporium under the car ramp on 1st avenue, well stocked supermarket with fresh greens, cold cuts, milk, cooked food, anything one needs to make home stay great.
4. Quiet apartment generally and safe street but some occasional noise from passing by neighbours.
5. Good connectivity from nearest metro station 3rd Avenue 59 Lexington Street (lines 4,5,6,N,Q,R).
6. Easy access from JFK airport (give yourself one hour). We took Airporter bus (US$16 per person) one way from JFK airport to 42nd Street Grand Central Station which connects well within Manhatten.
7. Back to Gene's place, there are cutleries, glasses, pots and pans indoor, apartment has sufficient light from hall which opens out to main 61 street facing.
8. Clean toilet and constant hot water in shower (perfect for the cold winter stay).
9. Clean bed linens all ready on check in.
10. Wifi provided in house.
11. Most important point - Easy going and responsive host Gene!
Thank you again and will love to visit NYC again and Gene's place will be my first choice for the next visit.
Gene est un hôte super. Très disponible durant notre séjour, il a su répondre à toutes nos questions sur whatsapp. L'appartement est idéalement situé, à a peine quelques rues de central park et d'une station de métro, de petits commerce et de réstaurants, a quelques arrets de timasquare. Très fonctionnel, nous étions trois et nous étions à l'aise car il dispose d'une chambre séparée. Je recommande cet endroit pour visiter New York.
