Everything is super convenient, the place is located at 34th street and 28 Avenue . the 30th Avenue are restaurants of many and various parts of the world , Japanese , Greek , Colombian , Italian and many more .

We are only 15 minutes from Manhattan ( NYC )

  Astoria is a beautiful place to stay and sleep
this room is ideal for travelers looking for a place to sleep well and wake up rested and refreshed to go out and see how interesting NY is all time

It is also Ideal for one family of three (couple + 1 kid).
is ideal for a woman traveling alone because it is a neighborhood of families, who work and go to school from Monday to Friday and therefore is quite silent, and I work during the day so the apartment is silent, for almost all the time.
However, call, and make sure this place has what you are looking

Welcome to NY.
one of the rules that need to put it in writing is that no visitors are allowed, and if for some reason it is imperative to do so, can not close the door to the room (this is where I live and I can not afford to disclose my place of privacy, before renting the room you passed through the verification process, bring someone unknown, put us both at risk (you & me) this is NY.
see you then

Regards

Betsy

2)-If you want to use the kitchen (electrical appliances, dishes, utensils, coffee maker, toaster). everything is left as it was found, in order and clean.

3) - this is non-smoking apartment (I I suffer from severe allergies to cigarette smoke)

4)-drink in moderation (it's a quiet neighborhood).

Interaction with Guests

first time in the Big Apple?.
or maybe not, I'll be here to help with whatever you need.

My working hours are quite flexible, I'm home quite early and I'm at home several days a week, if you need help with directions I'll help, Astoria has a very fast service and frequent trains 24 hours a day.

  • La casa es tal y como aparece en las fotos. Está bastante limpia y es bastante acogedora. Tiene aire acondicionado que funciona bien. Está muy cerca del metro y en un barrio con mucho ambiente. A mi, particularmente, no me gustan los gatos, pero el suyo es genial y está muy bien educado. No molesta para nada.
    Betsy es muy simpática y te ayuda con todo lo que necesitas.
    Nosotros tuvimos un problema, ya que ella se marchó de vacaciones y se cerró la puerta con una llave que no teniamos. Tuvimos que llamar a un cerrajero y pagar 200 $ por algo que nosotros no teníamos la culpa. Y la verdad, que nos sentimos un poco desprotegidos porque no recibimos ayuda de Besty en ese aspecto, la recibimos al día después cuando ya era tarde.
    Quitando ese detalle, si queréis ir a NY, os recomiendo ir aquí, sin dudarlo.

  • He tenido la gran suerte de haber elegido la casa de Betsy para mis primeros 4 dias en New York y quiero compartir mi experencia para todo aquel que se encuentre con la duda de si este apartamento es o no una buena opci'on para su viaje en esta ciudad. La habitaci'on que ofrece Betsy es tal y como aparece en las fotos, grande, con muebles suficientes para el equipaje, est'a provisto de un minifrigorifico que permite tener tu comida y bebida fresca y al alcance. Adem'as ella te provee de champu, crema hidratante, cepillo de dientes, pasta dentrifica y papel higienico de buena calidad, asi como plancha, secador de pelo, paraguas, etc. Ella es amable hasta la saciedad, hace todo lo posible e imposible para que no te falte de nada y te sientas agusto en su casa. El agua caliente y la presi'on en la ducha son fant'asticas. En la cocina tiene todo lo que puedas necesitar para cocinar de forma muy comoda. El aire acondicionado de la habitaci'on es increible tanto para el frio como para el calor. Y sobretodo vive en un vecindario espectacular, puedes volver a cualquier hora del dia o de la noche y esta todo abierto, supermercados, fruterias, restaurantes, bares de copas, algunos de ellos 24 horas al dia, con lo cual cuando sales del metro te encuentras a multitud de personas alrededor, nunca tienes la sensaci'on de que sea inseguro. Las personas que viven alli, son amables y deseosas de ayudarte con todo, ha sido increible encontrar un vecindario como este en una ciudad que en principio crea respeto por lo grande y multirracial. Por otro lado estes donde estes, siempre encuentras una estaci'on de metro por donde pasa las lineas que llevan a su casa, ya que son las principales que recorren Nueva York y nunca tienes que hacer transbordo, decides regresar y en menos de 15 minutos estas en la casa de Betsy sin tener que cambiar de linea. Desde la estaci'on a su apartamento no hay mas de 3 minutos andando, solo que como tienes tanto donde comprar y donde sentarte a tomar o comer algo, siempre terminas tomandote tiempo para disfrutar del barrio. Y ya por ultimo nombrar a Sebastian, su gato, el siempre esta ahi esperando a recibirte y a irse de tu lado con solo una orden, es el gato mas educado que he conocido jamas.
    No creo que haya en New York un apartamento que pueda ofrecer en conjunto todo lo que ofrece este, incluyendo a una anfitriona jovial y simpatica con la que compartir todas las experiencias del dia cuando llegas a casa. Habla ingles y espanol porque tiene origenes latinos. Sin duda el precio no hace justicia a todo lo que esta gran senora ofrece. Eternamente agradecida a tu hospitalidad BETSY!! Besos de Rosario y Nieves.

  • Betsy was a great host, always friendly and smiling. The apartment was very clean and well equipped. The neighborhood is also very good, a lot of shops, bars, and close to metro stop. I highly recommend it.

  • Great host and Betsy is a great lady. Apt was very clean and we enjoyed staying there a lot! Would come back any time!

  • It's been an amazing experience staying at Betsy's appartment, she is so nice and she must be one of the best host that you can find ! You could also meet Sebastian the cat who is funny :)
    The apartment is very nice, the bedroom is cute with a nice "Gone with the wind" theme !
    The apartment is well located, not even 5 minutes from the subway station in which you can take the subway line to Time Square and other touristic places you might visit. The subway stop for Betsy's home is "30st"on the yellow line (Q and N).
    I strongly recommend this place if you want to feel comfortable and meet someone to chat with :)

  • Staying at Betsy's was our first airbnb experience, so I was a little nervous... but Betsy's warm greeting and straightforward introduction to both her place and airbnb allayed any concerns I had.

    We loved staying in a typical Astoria residence. The neighbourhood has a colourful and active main street, but it is quiet on the side street where Betsy's place is located. On the evenings we returned from Manhattan around midnight, many others were exiting the train at the same time, the local grocery store and pharmacy were open, and several local restaurants were open, too... so we always felt safe walking home.

    We found the room to be what we expected, but I was pleasantly surprised to find the room equipped with a mini fridge, too. It was very handy! There are locks on the inside and outside of the bedroom door. Our privacy was secured while we were sleeping, and we felt comfortable leaving our passports and other personal effects in the room when we were out.

    The washroom and kitchen are very clean. We enjoyed making our own coffee and tea, and having breakfast at the apartment while making plans each day.

    We didn't see too much of Betsy but really enjoyed chatting with her when she was around. She is an interesting woman with many engaging pursuits! She promptly responded to any questions / concerns.

    All-in-all, we really enjoyed our stay at Betsy's and felt that it was excellent value.

    Thanks for making our first airbnb experience so positive, Betsy!

  • Everything was perfect at Betsy's place: the apartment is clean, the room spacious and finely decorated, it is located very near the train station so going to Manhattan or Brooklyn will take you only a few minutes. And Betsy is a perfect guest. She will make everything to make you feel comfortable and will give you really good advice for you to enjoy NY city, and her cat Sebastian is lovely. If we are to come back to NY again we will definitely go to Betsy's!

  • We spent 2 weeks at Betsy's place. She is a great host, we were like at home. She made us feel very comfortable, she really deserves a 5-star rating.
    The bedroom and bathroom are clean and spacious, the neighboroud is really great with all the restaurants and the subway that connects you to Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens quickly. You can have great breakfasts in many restaurants of the avenue.
    Whenever we go back to NYC, we will go there again !

  • Betsy is a very lovely host. She has everything you could wish for in her apartment (a hair-dryer, smoothing iron, an umbrella and even a fridge for her guests).
    After our arrival she showed us around Astoria and recommended some places to eat or buy groceries.
    Betsy is such a friendly and happy person. Chatting with her was always nice and she always asked us if there was anything we would like to have differently in her apartment.
    Her cat Sebastian is very well educated and has a sweet character and always likes to say hello when you come back home.

    Astoria is very pretty and calm but also very close to Manhattan. You just take the subway N or Q and within 10-15 minutes you are in the middle of Manhattan at Central Park.

    We really enjoyed living at Betsy’s as it was so restful after a day in Manhattan full of new experiences.
