Rachel communicated well and made every effort to provide hospitality. The location is just what I needed as a sole traveler and was pretty accessible.
Rachel's flat is very good .. It is situated in a good and quite position 5 minutes from East Brodway subway.. In walking distance there is china town , little italy and canal street.. Brooklyn bridge and Manhattan bridge..All around there are chinese restaurant, supermarket .. Dunky Donuts .. With subway we need 15 minutes to arrive in Times Square ..
The flat is cosy and confortable.. Our room is large with a Big bed .. 2 Big Windows and the wifi is good! The bathroom is confortable but need to be a little more cleaned.. Anyway I suggest this place for te price and the position ... We didn't meet Rachel but she was very patient and nice to give us all information how to reach her flat... We arrived At 9 pm and she left the key of te flat to the minimarket in the street .. Very kind people :) thank you Rachel :) hope to come back in Ny
Overall our stay was OK. The location was good & Rachel replied mostly within the day. But there were some things that bothered us: kitchen & bathroom were filthy, we saw a cockroach - & the neighbours & pipes were loud at night.
Rachel was really welcoming and I felt like an old friend staying at her place! A great airbnb experience and I would love to stay with her again some time. The room was just as described and the location was really convenient.
I really liked the place where this flat is: Situated in between of Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge - a perfect view every time you leave the house. The flat is good, the host very nice. Recommendable!
I enjoyed the stay at Rachel's apartment. The apartment is very central and close to different subway stations. Rachel was helpful and a nice host.
Good location close Chinatown. The room fits one visitor perfectly. By the way, Rachel's band is amazing. I was impressed by their performance at the cafe when I went to pick up the keys. Rachel was so nice. Thank you!
