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.
Staying at Colin's is my first experience on airbnb and it's indeed a good choice. Convenient on train 1 direct from upper west side to lower manhattan. Just minutes away from house to subway by walk(maybe 7 minutes). And also you can get stuffs from supermarket, good bar/ restaurant in this neighborhood. Will consider to choose again if visiting NYC next time. Thx Colin!
Colin and his mother were fantastic and gracious hosts. I had booked the room for my parents who were coming into town for my graduation and they were so happy with their experience. "Why would anyone want to book a hotel?" they said.
The apartment is a very beautiful (and proper, not a NYC-closet-) apartment . The room was spacious and had all the necessary amenities. Colin's mother was always home to greet us. She was so kind and sweet. We particularly appreciated how they were okay with me popping in and out to pick up my parents.
Overall great experience and we would highly recommend!
Thank you for the great review, and thank you for choosing to stay with us. Your Mom is wonderful. She is so nice and friendly. My Mom really enjoyed their conversations. Guests like your parents have made Airbnb a wonderful experience for both of us.
Prior to visiting NY, Colin was always quick to communicate, answering any questions. He and his lovely mother made me feel most welcome for my week's stay. The apartment was exactly as described. The bed was comfortable and there was ample storage in the room. In the kitchen, I was given cupboard space and room in the fridge. I found the basket of tourist information leaflets to be really helpful.
The neighbourhood felt safe and the subway was within easy walking distance.
If I revisit New York I would hope to stay here again.
En casa de Colin, hemos pasado unos hermosos días junto con mi esposa Mónica, siendo siempre amablemente bien atendidos.
Nuestro alojamiento fué perfectamente ajustado a la descripción del anuncio, o sea, no nos sorprendió nada diferente a lo que esperábamos.
El departamento de Colin está situado en un barrio que tiene todos los negocios que uno necesita para abastecerse de lo que haga falta para pasar un buen descanso (comidas elaboradas, lavanderias, peluquerías farmacias y mucho más)
Si alguna vez vuelvo a Nueva York volveré a lo de Colin sin dudarlo.
Fué todo tal como lo imaginamos.
Grateful for such a warm experience with Colin and his sweet mother. The room was large and lovely. The bed was so comfortable. My partner and I both felt very relaxed and welcome.
