Colin's place is amazing!!!! Him and his mother were really kind and I am happy that I stayed at his place. Once again, this place is for real. The interior is amazing, the bed was comfortable, and I had a wonderful stay.
A stay at Colin's was very pleasant - he is a welcoming host, responding fast to inquiries and trying to help where he can. The place is just as described.
Colin was great and so was his mom. The place was clean and the bathroom was almost always open. It was a lively part of Broadway at all times of the day. The only thing is that when we first arrived there was some kind of exchange going on at his next door neighbor's apartment and the whole floor smelled like weed. Not his fault at all of course, and it didn't bother me, but my mom was a little uneasy about that. Though as the week went on we realized that we were perfectly safe.
I'm sorry about your bad first night experience. It is one of the bad parts of living in a neighborhood that is changing. Thank you though for the otherwise great review. We hope that you are settling in nicely in your new apartment, and we wish you all the best with your school.
Colin and his mother were very friendly and accommodating. My flight got in 2 hours late and Colin stayed up until after midnight to let me in to the apartment. The apartment was conveniently located and comfortable.
Excellent séjour chez Colin et sa maman. Quartier au top, métro à proximité. Merci à eux deux pour leur accueil.
Colín is an excellent person, the room is so beautifil, the subway is very near.
Colin's apartment is really nice, quiet, clean and comfortable. I really like the decorations in the room. Ms Colin is very kind lady like family. It's the first time to travel in New York and we really had a great time. Thanks for everything sharing in the apartment.
