Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • 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.

  • Einfach perfekt!

    Betsy ist eine liebenswerte Frau, welche zusammen mit Sebastian (ihrer Katze) den Aufenthalt in New York versüsst. Die Wohnung und das Zimmer sehen exakt wie auf den Bildern aus. Alles ist sehr sauber und man fühlt sich sofort zu Hause. Betsy selbst ist eine interessante Frau, die viele Geschichten zu erzählen hat und die sich hervorragend um ihre Gäste kümmert. Es fehlte uns an nichts. Die Wohnung liegt nur ein paar Gehminuten vom Subway weg, mit welchem man in ca. 15 Minuten in Downtown Manhattan ist. Ausserdem ist die Wohngegend sehr angenehm und sicher.

    Dear Betsy, thank you very very much! We had a wonderful time and I’m sure we will see each other again!

  • Eine Woche haben wir bei Betsy gewohnt und es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Betsy ist eine sehr freundliche, zuvorkommende und hilfsbereite Person, die sich wirklich toll um ihre Gäste kümmert. Ihre Wohnung liegt nur wenige Minuten von der Subway entfernt, so dass man schnell in Downtown ist und in Astoria selbst gibt es viele nette Restaurants, in denen man super Essen bekommt. Bei unserem nächsten Besuch in New York werden wir ganz sicher wieder Betsy einchecken :-). Thank you Betsy!

  • Betsy was a wonderful hostess! Everything she promised in her profile, while she announced her place was there: the toothbrush, shampoo, conditioner, towels, good and warm heater, whatever, everything perfect like in a hotel, with one exception: in a hotel I'd never have the warm and kindness from Betsy. I felt completely at home, because she made me feel this way. She was very worried about knowing if it was everything good for me, asking if the water of the shower was good enough, if her cat was "annoying" me (and he wasn't at all, he's a very sweet and educated cat), and she was always saying: "Joana, if you need to cook anytime, help yourself!" I was very busy, and we didn't have enough time to spend together but in one of the days we had a snack together, and I really felt very welcome! I totally recommend Betsy's place, and her apartment is in a wonderful neighborhood and close to everything!

    Thanks for everything Betsy, and special thanks for the Airbnb Team, I really felt very secure in doing all the process of reservation and payment through the website, I can really see that you're trustful company!

  • It is my first travel to New York city and I'm pleased, that stayed here! House is placed very close to subway station! Only 3-5 minutes slow walking ( yes, in this 5 minutes you also have time to take a cup of coffe )! Comfortable room with vintage furniture.
    Do not worry about loud sound from street - it is absent here!
    If you feel along - do not worry, here also live wonderful cat "Sebastien" ( (website hidden) ) VERY FAT and like warm hugs ( if you can pick up him )!

  • Betsy was an excellent host who made us feel welcome in her home. She took a lot of effort to ensure that we were comfortable and was really helpful when we had questions. I highly recommend staying with her!

  • The house is pretty and extremely clean, and it is placed very close to the public transportation: subway, buses, etc. that connect you with the rest of the city. Betsy is a great professional, she cares about all those little details that make your stay so delicious, and she is a better person. The room has high speed internet that works wonderfully, it is warm and the bed is huge and very comfortable. Upon my arrival to NYC I had to wait in the airport until late night and she was so nice and patient to wait for me that late. The following days she showed me the neighborhood, places to do some shopping, and other practical pieces of advice for newcomers... Betsy was very helpful to get my first flavor of the city. I definitely recommend you to stay at Betsy's.

  • Betsy is one of the friendliest and warmest people I have ever met. She is very caring and thoughtful and always makes sure that you have a comfortable stay. She is also a lot of fun to talk to. Her cat Sebastien is such a sweetheart. I highly recommend her place for a safe and comfy stay in the City.

  • Betsy was the kindest and most gracious host. If you are looking for a place to stay that is close enough to Manhattan but also quiet and relaxing, I highly recommend staying at Betsy's place. She will absolutely make you feel at home. When I come back to visit NYC, this is where I plan to stay. The room was clean and nicely furnished with all the essentials. The apartment is a few minutes walk from the subway station and Times Square is a short ride away. There are restaurants nearby if you don't want to eat in NYC. I had a great experience all in all. Thank you Betsy! I really enjoyed staying at your place!

  • Betsy is a gracious host, and accommodating. She keeps her place clean and neat. Her place is conveniently located within 3 blocks from the subway station in a safe and quiet neighborhood. There are many restaurants and several street food vendors within short walking distance.
