ASTORIA is a lively 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!!!! :)

I stayed at Lina's room for a month. The room looks exactly like in the photo, it is very comfortable and spacious. The apartment is really cosy, beautiful and clean, safe and super quite. I felt like at home; I had full independency, sometimes I felt like I was alone in the apartment because Lina's Mother and Her Husband are incredibly discrete persons, soooo kind and helpful when you need. The building and area are safe, you can find nice restaurants and supermarkets around and you walk about 6mins to subway station. 10min to Manhattan - really cool conditions! I definitely recommend and I will come back!
The stay at Lina's place was great. Lina's parents are very welcoming people. The room is large and comfortable. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe, but all services can be found nearby. The route to Manhattan is easy as you don't have to switch trains.
Thanks Lina, Amparo & Álvaro. All the best
Io e mia figlia di 13 anni siamo state benissimo da Amparo e suo marito: la loro discrezione e' a dir poco eccezionale! Quando abbiamo avuto bisogno di aiuto o di consigli si sono resi subito disponibili. Abbiamo comunicato piu' in Spagnolo che in Inglese con loro.
Lina ha fatto da tramite con i suoi genitori e non l'abbiamo conosciuta di persona, pero' ci ha aiutato a trovare biglietti scontati per Fuerza Bruta che consigliamo se non siete troppo stanchi :-)
L'appartamento e' ubicato in una zona tranquilla anche di sera. Non abbiamo trovate molta varieta' di ristoranti la sera, quindi siamo rimaste spesso in centro. La stanza e' come la vedete in foto, spaziosa e luminosa. Nessun problema per condividere il bagno.
In generale, ottima esperienza come prima volta con Airbinb!
Great pleace! Nice location. Very quiet and large room. Amparo and Alvaro are incredible persons. Highly recommended!
Ons verblijf in het appartement van Lina en haar ouders is ons goed bevallen. Lina zelf woont er niet, alleen haar ouders, maar die blijven grotendeels in hun eigen kamer. Het voelt zo alsof je bijna een heel appartement voor jezelf hebt. Het appartement is leuk ingericht en schoon en de ouders van Lina zijn schatten. De woning is in een leuke buurt gelegen, niet heel bijzonder, maar binnen een klein half uur ben je vanuit het appartement in Central Park. Vooraf stuurde Lina ons een uitgebreide gids over hoe er te komen, wat te doen, en waar te eten. Heel leuk. Kortom: prima en betaalbare plek.
Merhaba ve teşekkürler Lina ve ailesi
Astoria çok rahat güvenli times squara a 24 saat metro var ve sadece 5 durak 5 th Avenue 3 durak
Lina bize taksi bulma ve diğer bütün konularda çok yardımcı oldu kendisi oldukça iyi ve deneyimli bir ev sahibi ayrıca köşedeki yemenli Sami Crescent deli nin çok güzel kahvesi ve sıcak sandviç leri var her türlü ihtiyacınızı karşılayabilirsiniz
tekrar Teşekkürler Herşey için
Staying at Lina's parents appartment was great. Astoria is a nice up-coming hood, where you can find great restaurants and some vintage stores. Travelling with the public transportation took about 25 minutes to Times Square - a bit far distance then expected, but it was okay.
