La estancia en el piso de Bianca ha sido magnífica. Tanto ella como su marido son encantadores, el piso es precioso, tiene una ubicación fantástica y desde el primer momento me he sentido como en casa. La habitación es acogedora, dispone de una cama francamente cómoda y un armario amplio. Sin lugar a dudas cuando vuelva a Nueva York me encantaría alojarme nuevamente en este apartamento.
I had two fantastic weeks staying at Bianca's apartment and getting to know Bianca. The charming room was very comfortable with everything you need and was completely spotless! There can hardly be any better location if you want to explore New York. Because the apartment was so close to everything, I was able to walk everywhere and "come home" several times a day just to rest or store my things. Taking subway was a also a breeze as the apartment was midway between two major subway spots: 42nd and 34th streets.
Bianca was the sweetest host. She gave me a ton of space and helped me out as needed. We even ventured to an art store and had a lovely lunch together. Something quite nice and memorable.
At first, I was a little concerned about the shared bathroom but I am glad to say that it was never a problem, even during those days when all the rooms were full. So, for those of you feeling a little reserved about this, really there was no problem at all. Everyone respected the space and had different schedule, so the bathroom pretty much was open all the time.
Access to the kitchen was also a great help. As I stayed two weeks, I was eating a home a lot and being able to use the kitchen was definitely a plus.
I wholeheartedly recommend this place for visitors. Just a small piece of advice: if you are a lighter sleeper, try booking one of the two rooms in the back of the apartment as you can hear street noises from the one in the front. As for me, it took a day and earplugs (which Bianca graciously prepared for me) and those noises were no longer a problem.
Thanks so much Bianca and Jose for all your help. I had the greatest time. :)
First time user of airbnb, and it was great. Loved my NYC apartment stay. Bianca was helpful, great with communication, and the location was FANTASTIC. I became tired from being able to walk to most places! Times Square is an easy walk, so is Empire State Building. Lots of nice 'little things', I'd stay here again.
I highly recommend it and would definitely stay there again. Bianca was a great host and immediately made me feel welcome. She was always ready to answer questions or provide insider tips.
Location is incredible, only a couple of minutes walk from Time Square, Port Authority Bus Terminal, Grand Central station and Bryant Park. It just doesn't get any better...
You just need to be aware that you may share the place with a couple of additional travelers, as all three rooms may be rented out simultaneously. It didn't bother me though, because the place was large enough to accommodate everyone and give you your own space.
Bianca is a sweet and charming host! She is very accommodating, very friendly and always available. The apartment was clean, spacious and a great location. My stay at Bianca's was really amazing. Thanks, Bianca. I highly recommend the place.
Tres bel appartement.
Tres bien situé juste a l'angle de la 5eme avenue et a 10 mn de time square.
L'hote , Bianca, nous a bien reçu et a nous a mis a l'aise.
L'escalier est un peu difficile en fin de journée, mais il permet de bruler les dernieres calories du dernier cocktail de la journée.
Room was great--only minor complaint was that there wasn't a light source (that I could find) in the room itself. Not a big deal, ultimately. Bianca warned me of street noise, but I didn't notice any.
I didn't meet Bianca personally, but her brother met me to give me the keys. He was nice and patiently waited as I got lost in NYC :) Very helpful. Both he and Bianca made sure to let me know that I could contact them if I needed anything.
Really nice clean appartment in a great area. Room and bathroom was clean. Appartment has easy access to all the main attractions. Host was also very welcoming and would advise on anything. Just note there is 3 levels of stairs to climb to the apartment. Definitely recommend the stay!
Bianca was very nice.
The room and the apartment were like in the picture. We have great time while stay there. But If you have many luggage you have to carried to third floor cause there was no elevator. But the location was great for everything !!
I had a lovely time at Bianca's apartment- it's clean, very very comfortable and stylish! Bianca is the sweetest person and she even helped me carry my extremely heavy bags.
The room is great there is a big dresser for all your things and a very very soft bed (and I am extremely picky when it comes to beds!!).
Over all- 5 stars. The location is amazing, the apartment is perfect.
