  • We stayed 3 weeks in the appartment during june 2013. Everything was perfect and it was just amazing to have everyday, every night (differents colours) a wonderful view of the empire state building !!
    The appartment is really comfortable, really pleasant, functionnal. Everything working well: shower, a great TV, many channels, wifi... The bed is very comfortable. the sofa too ! About kitchen: everything was OK for a long stay.
    The location was just perfect ! Near the high line, times square, madison square park (flatiron building, "shake shak" outdoor...), chelsea market, greenwich...
    Dave was accomodating, quick answer; everything was perfect !
    We highly recommend this place !

  • We stayed at Dave's place for 5 days in total and the apartment did not disappoint at all, it was one of the nicest and spacious places I have stayed in NY in a long time. The pictures show exactly what you will get if you stay here and the views from the window and roof-top terrace are amazing, especially at night time!!

    The location is great! There is a convenience store right beside the building, a few bars & restaurants nearby and a 24 hour CVS just around the corner for any essentials you could need (food, drinks, shower products etc). You can also walk to some main tourist attractions like Time Square in about 15 minutes, the walk is a nice way to see other parts of the city you might miss by getting a cab or the subway. Even though the apartment is on a street between 7th & 8th Ave we didn't find there was much street/traffic noise that could be heard from the apartment which was nice.

    Inside, the apartment was very spacious and clean. The kitchen is perfectly sized and has everything you will need to make a hot meal. The satellite TV is great and the free WiFi is a bonus to have (and is very fast). The bed is nice and big too and very comfortable! Even when the Murphy bed is pulled down there is still plenty of floor space. The staff in the apartment building are very friendly also and happy to help with directions, where things are located etc.

    Dave was great to deal with and responded straight away to any emails I sent him. Really a great host!

    We can't recommend this apartment enough and we'll definitely be looking to contact Dave again on our next trip to NY.

    Sumamente recomendable.

  • Excellent apartment in great position in Chelsea, handy for lots of subway lines, surrounded by restaurants and really good food shops and with that view of the Empire State building that looks particularly good when lit up at night. The apartment was clean and fully equipped {especially now we've provided an extra mug]- and everything worked! The murphy bed was just what the weary tourist needs and so large it could have accomodated us, Mr and Mrs Murphy and at least seven of their eighteen children. Highly recommended!

  • La mia prima esperienza in airbnb, per lunghi soggiorni è un ottima alternativa ai costosi alberghi della zona.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    It was my first time in airbnb...
    I contacted many host before to find Dave.
    Dave is a great host!
    Fast reply and he was flexible on checkout time.
    I met Dave when I arrived on his studio.

    The studio is like in pictures, very comfortable and the bed is wonderful!
    The neighborhood is amazing, subway is at the corner, there is everything you need...
    I was close the "Doughnut plant", where you can eat the most delicious donuts of the city :-)

    Many thanks Dave!
    I suggest it!

  • Dave's place is perfectly located & the pictures are an exact representation of the apartment. There's plenty of room if you're a solo traveler - a couple would be suited fine here as well.
    Dave's apartment has all the amenities today's traveler needs & wants - WIFI, kitchen, spacious bathroom & huge comfortable bed... plus there was on-site laundry!
    Dave also was a great communicator who was helpful & friendly to deal with, and was quick to reply to all my queries.
    You have a great view of the Empire State Building from the window, which never gets old. The only small drawbacks were that the apartment did face the street, so if you're sensitive to noise it might not be the best choice for you (then again, NYC might not be the best choice for you if you're sensitive to noise). The second drawback was that some other person on Dave's floor happens to be a pretty prolific smoker, so the hallway outside the elevators & leading up to Dave's apartment did tend to have the aroma of cigarettes. Once inside Dave's apartment however, you were protected from the scent. I just chalk that up to people having neighbors & there's not much one can do about it, other than to hurry inside & enjoy the peace inside Dave's apartment!
    I would definitely stay here again!

  • Dave's place does not disappoint! Comfortable, clean and in a great location with subway and grocery stores close by. We were here in the winter and the apartment was lovely and warm without having to use any heating.
    If you would like use the bath (which I would have loved to have a soak) you need to know what to do....it's not obvious. I found out later from Dave that you have to put the pole into the tube beside the toilet. This is the plug, early 20's plumbing I'm told. Dave said he was going to add this to his unit instructions, but if he doesn't this info might be helpful.
    Good communication with Dave throughout the whole process.
    This was my first time using airbnb and was a little skeptical at some listing. Thank you Dave for making it a trouble free experience. If I'm ever in NY again I woundn't hesitate in trying to secure Dave's place.

  • One word to describe Dave's place, AWESOME!!! The location is perfect, and the accessability to the Subway incredible. The apartment is cozy, warm and clean. The bed comfortable and the leather sofa was amazing. The view to the Empire State Building is epic from the window and the rooftop. Dave is a really great host. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to my close friends.
