  • Rahul and Susham were extremely responsive and accommodating hosts. I had a travel conflict, arriving earlier than expected and Rahul made sure that I wasn't stranded during the day, Susham came home to let me in the apartment. I really appreciated that since I had flown redeye from Vancouver and was completely exhausted. They certainly didn't have to be as responsive as they were, but they made sure I was taken care of. Accommodations were great, warm bed, wireless, coffee/tea in the morning. I was glad I chose to stay with them.

  • The Bedi's were wonderful hosts. Rahul was very helpful with the reservation and with any follow up questions. He and his wife Susham were a delight and a pleasure to meet. Very gracious and warm. I enjoyed our conversations and the apartment is comfortable and in a perfect location. Next to Columbia and very close to Barnard, the #1 line, major bus lines on Broadway, and to a wealth of restaurants and cafes. A very safe neighborhood and very walkable. I will most likely stay there again on my return trip next year!
    Thank you.

  • The Bedis are very welcoming and friendly hosts. I felt very comfortable in their apartment and would stay there again.
    The location for Columbia is fantastic.
    The number 1 subway is a short walk which gives access to all points on the west side of Manhattan from north to south.

  • Rahul and Sushan hosted my daughter Kathryn for several weeks last month. Kathryn had a wonderful time and had only good good things to say about her hosts and their home. In her words, they were extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable and she felt completely at home in the apartment and common areas. The neighborhood is in a great location. It is down the street from Columbia's main campus and is close to 2 subway lines. Kathryn felt very safe both day and night. She would love to stay in the Bedi's home again in the future!

  • Rahul and Susham were excellent hosts and made me feel completely at home during my stay. The room was very comfortable and the location is great. I would definitely recommend Rahul's home to anyone visiting New York and specifically Columbia University.

    August 2012
  • Rahul and Susham are exceptional hosts. They did their best to make us feel at home and gave us lot of tips for where to go. We had outstanding time at the place. I strongly recommend this place to everyone, it is in a perfect location near Columbia University and close to subway station. They offered us free breakfast, free wi-fi and the room has a computer and printer available for use. The place was very clean and lot of fresh towels to pick and use. All in all, this was a fantastic place to stay. We will definitely go here again in future.

  • Rahul's place is in a great location, so close to Columbia University, two great parks and the subway. Only a 15 minute trip to Times Square. I had a mini-fridge in my room so could have some grocery items, and was able to use the kitchen area for coffee, breakfast, etc. Rahul and Susham are great hosts, very friendly and kind. I will stay with them again soon.

  • Very accessible, safe location and lovely hosts that made me feel completely at ease despite this being my first time to use airbnb. I had a great stay, thank you!

    May 2012
  • Great location, such an easy access to Columbia U, the subway station, the church, and eatery. The accommodation was quiet, clean, private, safe, and hosts Raul and Susham were very friendly, warm and hospitable. My sister and I were so pleased to have found a home away from home in NYC. We will definitely stay there again should we go visit NYC in the future.

    May 2012
  • Rahul and wife was very pleasant. We only stayed for a day but they took good care of us. They Made us feel at home and no rush on removing our bags. We really appreciate their kindness and hospitality. We will definitely stay with them again the next time we are back in NYC. Thank you Rahul and wife! :)
