You'll receive a code for the apartments wireless internet when you book. It's a long code, so I recommend saving it to a text file on your desktop if you plan on using internet in the apartment.
Please email me your specific airplane, train or bus arrival time with your booking inquiry. I rent out my home while I travel, so I need to make sure that my travel plans match yours before accepting a booking.
I accept guests with filled out profiles, including a photo, and verified contact information.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION FROM AIRPORTS
John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK)
Take the AirTrain to Jamaica Station. From Jamaica Station take the Long Island Railroad (LIRR) to Penn Station. From Penn Station you can take the subway one stop to 42nd Street, walk, or take a cab.
Time: 30-45 minutes
Cost one-way: $11.25 (offpeak hours) / $13.75 (peak hours)
NOTE: It's possible to save $4-6 by taking the subway from JFK. I don't like this option because taking the subway over a long distance takes much longer and is less comfortable.
Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR)
Take the AirTrain to the NJ Transit train station. Take the NJ Transit train to Penn Station. From Penn Station you can take the subway one stop to 42nd Street, walk, or take a cab.

TAXIS FROM AIRPORTS
I like using a car service called Dial 7 ((website hidden) or (phone number hidden)). You’ll need to reserve a car for a specific time and call the service when you arrive. Dial 7 is a bit less expensive than a taxi.

This is a very nice and clean apartment, just as we expected and is shown in the pictures. The neighborhood is lively and feels safe, many tourists and people around. There are many restaurants close by. The host was very flexible with check in and check out times.
Karolina was a wonderful host and very accommodating with our early check in. Her very detailed travel instructions were extremely helpful in finding my way from the airport to her place. The listing was beautiful and cozy exactly as described in the listing. Would definitely stay here again if I were to visit in the future. Thank you so much Karolina :)
This place was great! Very centrally located, clean, and big for right in the middle of the city! We had a good experience with the host as well. I would recommend staying here and would stay here again.
The stay at Karolina's place was everything I expected. It was great! Karolina was very nice and was always available for questions and she had very helpful answers. :) Her place is great, the pictures are a perfect representation of what the place looks like, no surprises. Very clean, great location, very close to Times Square and Broadway. I had a great time and so glad we stayed at this place with Karolina as our host.
This appartment is perfectly situated. We walked until time square, 5th av., central park, etc. Also very close from the Lincoln tunnel or the central bus terminal. Karolina was very helpful, letting us know that we could buy tickets for pippin for 37$ and it worked very well! Everything was great! The top 3 of our week end : Smalls jazz club in greenwich village (try the cocktail "moon...rhum, basil, grapefruit, etc."), tartine restaurant nearby (bring your own wine), Pippin (broadway show), Brooklyn Flea Market in Williamsburg.
This was our second stay at Karolina's apartment, and it was great. The apartment is only a short walk from Times Square, and is in a safe part of town. Karolina is a gracious and helpful host, and the apartment is spotless. Highly recommended.
We stayed at Karolina's apartment over the xmas / new year period.
Karolina met us at the apartment after we texted her to advise we had arrived at the airport. Karolina was very friendly and gave us lots of good advice about New York sites, Restaurants and Theatre handy hints.
The apartment was neat and tidy and very clean. The furnishings were really nice and the bed and couch were comfy.
The location of the apartment was fantastic and we would book again just based on this. It is approx 5 mins walk to Times Square, Theatre district and a subway station. It is surrounded by a variety of restaurants with choices of any cuisine and to suit any budget. Great for food lovers.
There are multiple smaller supermarkets for those wishing to purchase food to cook but a little walk or train ride to the larger supermarkets.
The apartment has everything you need in the kitchen, including a large fridge, use of the wardrobe and bathroom cabinet.
It was so cold when we were in New York and the apartment is nicely heated so was lovely to come back to at the end of a cold day. We were always warm overnight.
The towels and linen are all clean and Karolina provided toilet paper and cleaning products.
The neighbours were noisy from about 5-9pm each night and argued loudly on a regular basis. This of course was not Karolina's fault but just to be wary you can hear this.
The street noise is loud, as is any apartment in such a great location but ear plugs helped at night, which was the only time we were at the apartment.
There were no curtains in the bedroom or dining area. We used a sarong in the bedroom to improvise as a curtain so that we could get changed in private. It would be great for Karolina to invest in a blind. Please take a dark sarong or piece of material with you if you can.
Overall I would definitely recommend this apartment and would stay here again.
Thanks Karolina. Hope to see you again.
We loved staying in the apartment. It was clean, well located and quite pleasant. Space was fine for two. Karolina was lovely. The only suprise was no TV, which I loved but my traveling companion missed. Anyway, we had an ipad. Who needs TV!
The whole experience was great.
Karolina apartment was perfect for our shopping trip to New York
We would stay again and recommend it to any friends going to New York
This was a FABULOUS first Airbnb experience that very much exceeded our expectations! Karolina was so helpful and accommodating. She was able to provide suggestions and was flexible with our check-in and departure times. The apartment was just as advertised -- clean, quaint, a fabulous location! We would absolutely stay here again on our next trip to NYC.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
