We had a wonderful time staying in Bob and Gladys's apartment. It was located in a great area of Queens, very close to the train. The apartment itself was clean and safe with a large television and bed. Gladys and Bob are the best! So nice and cool, making jokes and always taking care of us. Rarely met such friendly people! I can highly recommend their apartment!
The rooms and parking were exactly as described, which is to say not spacious but more than sufficient. Wifi, TV, heat, worked great. My wife and I appreciated having more room and a more 'at home' feel for a much lower cost than a hotel. In addition, the neighborhood was safe and great for walking to local restaurants, a Rite Aid, food market ... Having the subway station a block and 1/2 away made getting into Manhattan a breeze.
One big surprise was how quiet the neighborhood is. The small amount of street noise and people all quiet down by 9 or 10 PM.
Gladys and Bob were helpful with tips on where to eat and best subway lines into the city. They left us some bananas, milk and bottled water prior to our arrival and then left some cookies and mixed nuts during our stay.
For our first AirBNB stay a great experience.
Bei den beiden war es super. Gladys hat uns ganz herzlich empfangen und uns alles gezeigt.
Wir haben eine eigene Wohnung in der oberen Etage gehabt. Die Wohnung hat amerikanischen Standard, also ein bisschen altbacken eingerichtet, aber sauber. Deswegen finden wir sie vor allem wegen der Lage zur Metro und in Astoria/Queens sehr gut.
This is our first stay in the house of Gladys & Bob and we hope come back as soon as possible. They are very nice. The house is very comfortable and very close to Manhattan and of the subway. *HIGHLY RECOMMEND*!!!!!
The reservation was canceled 118 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Everything was perfect. Gladys was the sweetest host and even attended my film screening (the reason I was there)! She is lovely, the place is very homey and comfortable, and I will definitely stay there again if I have the chance!
*HIGHLY RECOMMEND*!!!!! This is the reason AirBnB is so great.
This is my second stay at Gladys and Bob's place - and I can't wait to go back there again! The apartment is really comfortable and I had everything I needed, but that was not all - Gladys and Bob are such fantastic people! They truly want their guests to enjoy the stay.
I strongly recommend this place to everyone visiting Manhattan and Queens!
