Colin and his mom were nice hosts, very accommodating and hospitable. The room was just as pictured! The apartment is very nice and everything worked well. Very close to the subway station, with easy access to lower Manhattan. Definitely recommend!
Colin and his mother were great hosts. The apartment is very nice and clean. The neighbourhood is very safe. It was nice staying there, only 20-25 minutes from Times Square. Don't hesitate.
It was a great experience in NY and Colin and his lovely mother helped me and my girlfriend to make it even more special. The apartment was comfortable and had everything we need. The neighborhood was not exactly calm or one hundred per cent secure but the street we need to take the train, Broadway, it was. I definitively would come back to his house on the future.
Der Aufenthalt bei Colin hat uns sehr gut gefallen, es war alles so, wie beschrieben.
Das Zimmer war sehr sauber.
Man sollte jedoch beachten, dass man ca. 25-30 min benötigt, um zu wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten zu kommen.
Insgesamt waren wir sehr zufrieden und würden es auf jeden Fall weiter empfehlen.
Colin was a warm and gracious host. The apartment is great! Huge by New York Standards, very clean and comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet, safe, and well-provided with delis, etc. There's a good Italian restaurant nearby, Unione.
Due to an unexpected hospital stay, my friend, Niki, and I were unable to stay with Colin. He was extremely understanding and even provided alternative nights that we could visit. He was very responsive to our emails and seemed eager for our arrival. Although we did not stay with him, I would recommend him as a host considering his effective communication skills and outward hospitality.
