Interaction with Guests
I live here and will be glad to help with anything to make your travels as easy as possible.
Edward was very prompt at replying to all communication. As he works during the day & moonlights as a DJ, he is rarely home, leaving the place to guests.
The neighborhood is a bit sketchy with a fair amount of homeless around, but none of them bothered us. Metro is about 10 minutes walk away. Supermarket directly opposite with lots of food.
Is particularly suitable to dog lovers.
Appartment was clean. Doorman gave us the keys. 2 Big Beds in a room :-) Ap. next to a subway station. 20 min. to downtown.
Friendly host! 2 friendly dogs.
Nice host (didn't see him much as we had different schedules), nice and functional, well located in Harlem. However, the air conditioning is in the living room which implies sleeping with the bedroom door wide open. I should add that the 3rd person sleep on a double inflatable mattress, which is fine, but as the regular bed and the inflatable mattress are next to each other, there is literally no space on the sides of the beds. Having said that, you can't really complain for the price based on the location of the flat.
Edward's appartement was great. Also really easy to get to by subway. From the centre of NY it's only a 30 minute trip. Edward was always available to contact and answered really quick. We had a great time.
Edward's place was great! Too bad we didn't get to spend more time together because of our short stay, but his dogs were adorable! Thank you again for having us!
The room was very specious, the apartment was tidy. Edward was very accommodating and helpful, building was very safe with a doormen 24h.
The big dog is super sweet and extremely friendly, the small one stays out of your way.
This is really not a big surprise anymore, The place is in E. Harlem, I spent the weekend and the Subway is a little tricky, there would be no Express 4 train, however it just takes maybe 15 minutes extra long, so if you want to stay in the Center, this might not be the place for you. Eddie was very accommodating,he made me feel like the place is also my home. You will be welcome by his 2 precious dog. He also made sure that I am connected to the world as I was having a difficult time with the WiFi password. He came back home from his job and got me connected. He was very helpful, place was clean.
