Interaction with Guests
We love our guest and they have there own private room and will not be disturbed. You might see Nelson and Anna, our long term tenants, when they are not working.
We are only a few steps away from the Cloisters and other parks which are always a great place for a beautiful walk or a cozy picnic. You can go for a morning jog or enjoy the romantic views of the Hudson River and the George Washington bridge.
The neighborhood is diverse and family friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed and cozy. The area is always buzzing with life, and has plenty of 24/7 supermarkets, corner stores, restaurants, banks, drugstores, and more!
The "1" train is conveniently located right across the street. The subway is $2.50 per ride and you can access anywhere in NYC for that price. Only 15-20 minutes away from cloud-punching high-rises, megawatt billboards, honking taxis - Midtown is movie set New York. Stay here and you'll be a few train stops away of Times Square, the Empire State Building and the Rockefeller Center, plus the bright lights of Broadway and shopping icons Bloomingdale's and Saks. The area's concentration of businesses means that whether you're craving a humble hotdog to a Michelin-starred feast, you'll find it here, and for ethnic eats don't miss to Koreatown and Murray (aka Curry) Hill. Further south, Chelsea is contemporary art's HQ and home to the High Line, a sublime public park on an elevated railroad with the views to match. You can also enjoy free parking on our street or affordable nearby parking garages.
You can easily take the A train at our apartment to:
Chinatown Canal Street
Empire State Building
High Line Park
Natural History Museum
Twin Towers Memorial
...and much much more!
Other Things to Note
There is roof top access to see the beautiful city views! CHECK OUT is at 10:00 AM courtesy of the next guest arriving. If you need too leave your luggage in the hall to pick up later that is fine. Thanks!
No drugs, loud music....
We had a great time staying at Konrad and Bethany's place. Beds were very comfortable, room was cozy (and had a TV and selection of movies, which was a nice surprise). The 1 train is just around the corner and was very convenient for getting downtown - we never even had to change trains to get where we wanted to go. We didn't get a chance to meet Konrad or Bethany, but they responded very quickly to any questions we had. Thanks for hosting us!
We were disappointed by the fact, that we had to share the appartment with?? we do not know. We just heared someone in the late evening making quit a lot of noice. Private room is discribed but we did not feel any privacy at all.
Nice and cosy place to stay. Host is friendly and accommodating as well.
We enjoyed the neighborhood and how close the apartment is from two subway stations. It's really easy to find good Latin and Middle Eastern food near the apartment, including restaurants and small grocery stores. The room and the restroom are a little small but they were clean and the shower is warm. I think overall it was a great experience and we would definitely do it again.
Konrad & Bethany were flexible regarding check in & check out. They were pleasant & friendly. The apartment was cozy & clean. It was very close to the A & 1 lines. It is a working class neighborhood. Staying there made me feel like a New Yorker commuting into Manhattan. And the price can't be beat! Definitely would come back for another visit! Thanks for a great time!
The location is very convenient (extremely close to Subway and Supermarket ). The room place is limited but wifi is great.
Room was clean but small. We didn't saw Konrad, he left the keys and also in the end we didn't saw him. Altough we won't rent it again! We had the Squad in the middle of the night at the door, searching for Konrad. So that was a terrifying expercience for us! After we didn't feel safe at all!
