About This Listing
We have a room in a big, sunny loft, on the second floor. with a 20 ft celling , wooden floor, ping-pong table. Located in safe, nice neighbourhood with bars, stores and restaurants near by. One subway stop from Manhattan. Shared bathroom.
We didn´t met Duda, because she had troubles in her family and was in Europe at this time. But her son Fedja was a perfekt, smart and very nice host. He started to be a friend of us and we had a very nice time together with him!
The flat is large, looks like on the fotos and you must love it. We slept very well and the location is perfekt. You just have to go 2 minutes to the Subway and with it 3 stations to Time Square. It is a quiet aerea and very close to the Waterfront, from where you have a fantastic fiew to the skyline of Manhatten Up- and Midtown! Also from the Waterfront you can go by boat to Mid- and Downtown.
A lot of nice little restaurants are over there!
The room was spacious and light, with a lot of storage space. The apartment was nice and artfully decorated. I found the location on Long Island City perfect. It's just one subway-stop away from midtown Manhattan, with connections to major lines, and at the same time, you can relax far from the hustle and bustle from the big city. There is a beautiful park just around the corner, with a magnificent view on Manhattan's skyline. Also, the landing from the East River Ferry is within walking distance, and the ferry takes you to Brooklyn or Manhattan. There are quite a lot of good and affordable restaurants in the neighbourhood.
I didn't meet Dubravka, but her son made sure we were comfortable, and provided us with help and assistance.
We only met Freddy, a very nice, laidback and friendly host.
The appartment is spacious and nice on a great location! Only thing that could been better is the cleaning. We've spend there 9 nights and only on the day we left there were some cleaning activities.
Great neighbourhood, beautiful (and very clean) loft, comfy bedroom. On top of that, friendly and interesting hosts! A very good airbnb experience in NY! Highly recommended!
Everything was perfect! Dubravka and Freddy were amazing hosts, very friendly and nice, clever and cool people to share conversations and perfect to share a house. They are the kind of people you must meet in your life. Our hosts were very warm, friendly and the house....that is another chapter: the loft is a great place to stay if you look for space, great decoration, new neighborhood one block away fro the best view of Manhattan and steps away from the subway. We stayed for one week with my boyfriend and we had a wonderful time. Don't hesitate and stay in this beautiful loft with these beautiful people!!!!! Thank you Dubravka and Freddy!!!
Duda nous a très bien accueillis, nous faisant visiter son appart et son quartier lors de notre arrivée. Par la suite, elle s'est montrée discrète et nous avons disposé librement de l'appartement, qui est conforme aux photos et à la description.
La localisation est parfaite, à un arrêt de Grand Central, dans un quartier calme avec une vue magnifique sur la skyline !
Great stay in a great place. The room was warm, cozy and with enough room to store clothes. The apartment is beautiful, just like in the pictures, and very clean. Dubravka and her son Freddy were friendly, helpful and discreet.
The neighborhood is very well located, you are in the city in no time. There are some very cozy bar and breakfast places around which still make you feel like a local. Oh, and not to mention the beautiful water front.
