ASTORIA (email hidden)ly safe neighborhood filled with people from all over the world and known for great food, particularly Greek. There are numerous cafes, restaurants, grocery stores, and fruit stands a block away. We're two blocks from the Broadway Ave subway stop and very close to LaGuardia Airport (but not on a flight path). 40 Minutes from JFK - Late arrivals are not a problem.

SUBWAY (N and Q): Just around the corner. 10 minutes to Manhattan (Lexington and 59th Street), 15 minutes to Times Square. The subway runs all night (every 5 minutes) and is safe to ride all the time. In few minutes you can be in Times Square or in Madison/Fifth Avenue window shopping, ice skating at Rockefeller Center, seeing a Broadway show or just wandering the streets of Manhattan.

I can even get you great tickets (usually but not always) for off broadway, jazz clubs, and comedy clubs ... and sometimes even broadway.. for the crazy price of $10 per ticket!!!! :)

Exelente apartamento para quedarte en tus vacaciones en NYC. Localizado solo a 4 paradas en tren de Midtown, Manhattan. El barrio es excellente, bohemio y famoso por su caffes & restaurantes al aire libre - bastante diversidad de culturas. Lo recomiendo para mujeres viajando solas que no quieran gastar una fortuna por su estadia en NY pero si quieran estar en lugar lindo, con cultura y super seguro. Si estan interesado por favor contactame a mi e-mail or telefono.

  • The room was big and clean and had everything you could possibly need: two comfortable beds, storage, towels, guide books, computer, umbrellas and TV. They also let us use the hair dryer. Only ten minutes walk to the train. Lina answered our questions fast and thoroughly before we arrived. I would definitely stay again.

  • As so many others have mentioned, staying in Lina's apartment was great. It was very clean and quiet, and the neighborhood felt safe. My bed was comfortable and firm, just the way I like it.
    Lina helpfully tried to get us low-priced Broadway tickets, but it didn't end up working out with our schedule.
    My friend wasn't feeling well the last morning, and Lina's mom was very sweet and concerned.
    Despite the fact there were 4 of us sharing a bathroom it wasn't the slightest bit of a problem.
    I would gladly stay at the apartment again. Loved the King of Falafel stand on the walk to the subway station!
    NYC in general these days is so much cleaner and safer than it used to be, and everyone we encountered was helpful and friendly.

  • Maravillosa experiencia, habitación absolutamente limpia, baño cocina y accesorios de cocina impecables, ubicación a cuatro bloques del metro en una zona muy comercial y segura, se puede caminar tarde en la noche sin problema, las fotos son realmente lo que uno ve, los padres de Lina son muy agradables personas, siempre con el animo de colaborar en todo lo que uno pueda necesitar, definitivamente, siempre que vuelva a New York regresare aquí.

  • We had a great time staying at Lina's place, we didn't meet her but her parents were very pleasant and welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable, Fresh towels, wi-fi access was great! Location wise, minutes from Broadway in Astoria, which is a great Neigbourhood! Nice shops, food at every corner!! Great experience over all!
    Thank you very much for the wonderful time!!!

  • I am a big fan of NYC (who wouldn't :) ?!) and was looking for a place that would enable me to discover a new borough of NYC (I previously stayed in Manhattan) and that would also enable me to enjoy both nearby Manhattan as well as much further places in NYC such as Coney Island (South of Brooklyn). And this is exactly what I got staying at Lina's apartment in Astoria / Queens. Located in a very safe area, with convenience stores, laundromats, banks… Within walking distance, you will be welcomed by Lina's parents. The building has an elevator, a laundromat in the basement. The room is exactly as advertised, spacious and with everything you might need (wardrobe, computer, wifi, big flat TV screen…). The room as well as the apartment are ultra clean and very cozy. Lina's parents are indeed very lovely and helpful people and be here if you have any questions (English / Spanish). Lina will of course be here to help you too… It was very easy to keep in touch with her. She even got me a discount ticket for a really amazing show. It will take you no more than 7mn to get to the nearest subway station, really close. NYC is an exciting city… But if at the end of the day you look for a nice restaurant near the apartment, then you can do just that. When you exit the subway station, you will find everything you need. For all these reasons, I definitely recommend Lina's apartment and will definitely rent Lina's apartment again when I get back to NYC ! PS : Lina will provide you with an excellent NYC Guide. Enjoy !

    Mi amiga y yo estuvimos en este departamento 11 días y sentimos que no podríamos haber elegido un lugar mejor. El cuarto está muy bien, es grande y cómodo, tiene una tele gigante, una computadora y mucho lugar para guardar las cosas. Estaba muy limpio, al igual que todo el departamento.
    Los papás de Lina son muy atentos y amorosos, pero no invasivos. Nunca tuvimos problemas para usar el baño. Amparo nos ayudó en todo lo que necesitamos.
    El barrio es realmente muy bonito, la calle por donde uno va del tren al departamento tiene de todo, hay muchos lugares para desayunar y comer en general, supermercados 24 hs, etc. Cuando vuelva a Nueva York definitivamente lo volveré a elegir. ¡Gracias Alvaro, Lina y Amparo!

    My friend and I stayed in this apartment for 11 days and felt we could not have chosen a better place. The room is really good, big and comfy, it has a huge flat tv, a computer and lot of storage places.
    It was really clean (the whole apartment was).
    Lina's parents are very kind and loving, but not intrusive. We never had any trouble using the shared bathroom. Amparo helped us in everything we needed.
    The neighborhood is really pretty, the main street you walk everyday to the subway has everything, there are lots of places to eat and have breakfast, as well as 24 hour supermarket and Walgreens.
    When I'm back in NYC I will definitely stay there again.
    Thanks Alvaro, Lina and Amparo!

  • Notre séjour s'est déroulé idéalement ! une chambre spacieuse et agréable dans une résidence , chez des hôtes très accueillants et très discrets, toujours prêts à aider. Nous avons échangé avec eux en espagnol et en anglais ! Géographiquement c'est le top : en très peu de temps, on rejoint la station de métro "Broadway" et 5 stations plus tard on est dans Manhattan. la ligne de métro est en local sur cette portion ce qui évite les tracas des trajets. Il y a de tout dans le quartier et à toute heure vu que beaucoup de commerces sont ouverts jusqu'à minuit.

    Personnellement nous recommandons ce logement.

    Nous n'avons pas pu rencontrer Lina mais cette dernière a appelé lors de notre arrivée pour nous souhaiter la bienvenue et n'a pas manqué de nous recontacter lors de notre départ pour savoir si tout s'était bien passé. Un grand merci à elle pour toutes les informations qu'elle nous a fournies pour que notre séjour soit bien rempli et sans mauvaise surprise.

    Merci à toute la famille pour leur accueil.
