We were welcomed by Stacey. She was very helpful. The apartment was a big studio with 2 double beds and a sofa. Perfect for our family of four. It was clean and on the first floor of the building. The 5Av/53St subway station is very close (at the corner).
Our only complaint is the room smells when you enter. A few puffs of air freshener covered it up well and we got used to it after a while. The room would have been 5 stars if not for that.
All went as expected. Easy contact to Viki and to check in, even though we only contacted via phone/ email. Super location to sights and subway in all directions. Apartment was as described with comfortable beds for 4. For more than 5 people it would be crowded. We ate out as is "normal" when in NYC and with such a broad offering right around the neighborhood. Gladly another time when in town.
Description for apartment was very accurate - great space in very central location - we were able to walk to 90% of the spots we were interested in visiting and subway station only a few minutes for those who would prefer public transport. Apartment was a great size for our family - 2 adults and 2 children. Host was very responsive to our needs while we were staying - we had an issue with the stove but this was resolved very quickly for us.
We did have a problem accessing keys to the apartment but this was due to us not having any phone contact - if you are planning to stay here our suggestion is ensure you have phone contact and can advise one hour before your arrival.
This was my second airbnb stay. The room is near the building entrance and the garbage room and when those doors close they loudly slam shut. It is as loud as a shot gun blast. The door slams started as early as 4am and stopped by 10pm. The building has a small number of residents, so the noise is not frequent and it does stop at night when the residents go to bed. The front door doesn't seal well and there is little in the way of sound isolation. You can hear people walking and talking when traversing the building stairs. Using ear plugs to help sleep while in Manhattan is normal.
-The room was fairly clean.
-The bed was comfortable.
-The internet was very fast. 100 Mbps when using the wired connection.
-Minimal street noise.
-The neighborhood has a lot of restaurants.
-Close to the subway station
The bathroom did not have much counter space. The sides of the sink sloped inwards, so where to put things was a challenge. The bathroom had no hooks or shelves to put clothing.
The building is old and run down, which is common in NYC. It does not appear to be "renovated and rebuilt" as the description lists. The shower had a drafty window in the shower where you stand that filled the bathroom with cold winter air. I put tape around the edges to help keep the cold air out. The leather couch was in bad shape and should be thrown out.
Overall it wasn't terrible, but disappointing relative to my first airbnb NYC stay, which was a noticeably higher-end apartment at the same price point. Many hotels in Manhattan would be more expensive and have smaller rooms.
Veronika was very quick and responded to all my questions and concerns. Everything went exactly as planned and the cleaning lady (Stacey) was easy to get a hold of and nice. It looks better than the pictures and the beds were quite comfortable. It's also in the perfect area for a trip tot NYC. I thought it was more spacious than I was expecting and was enough room for us (5 girls). It was clean and comfortable and provided the perfect location for our weekend getaway.
