Katherine is a very kind and helpful host. She gave us a lot of recommendations about where to go and what to do in the city. Her place is clean and nice and she's always ready to answer questions and to provide help. The only drawback is because the room is facing the street and we stayed on Memorial weekend, it was noisy at night.
We had a wonderful stay with Katherine. She was very friendly, welcoming, great company and went out of her way to help us with public transport advice and sight seeing tips. The room and bed were very comfortable, we had our own bathroom and we were able to use kitchen facilities. Convenient location, very clean and a safe neighbourhood. Highly recommended.
My stay at Katherines apartment was awesome. She answered all my questions so efficiently weeks before we even got to the city. Upon arrival, she welcomed us in her lovely condo. Her space was very spacious, very clean and organized. She even gave us a cabinet of things that we forgot to bring! She took the time to show us around, give us instructions in the place and how to get around. She let us have our own private space and was always available to answer our questions. She even suggested places to eat and help us find a pizza place at 11PM (which was the best pizza ever).
Katherine was an awesome host, super nice and accommodating! Hope to stay with Katherine again in the future. Bonus, she made coffee for us every morning!
Friendly and flexible host. We basically had entire floor with livingroom since her bedroom was in downstairs. Everything was nice and tidy but I bet the room might get really hot during the summer because at least during our stay there was no a/c.
We had a great stay. The flat and the room were lovely. Katherine treated us with some nice cake and coffee. She's a very nice person, very interesting. She had great suggestions on what to do in New York. We always felt safe in the neighbourhood. 10 minutes walk to the Utica avenue Metro stop with line A and C. We could be quickly in Manhattan. We would come back without hesitation :)
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Katherine, très accueillante, souriante et toujours prête à donner de bons conseils!
L'appartement est spacieux et très propre, la salle de bain privative est un plus vraiment appréciable.
Katherine a pris le soin de nous préparer un très bon gateau au chocolat pour nous souhaiter la bienvenue et son café et excellent.
En bref, je vous recommande vivement de séjourner chez elle.
About the Host, Katherine
I love traveling and hosting travelers. As a long-time New Yorker, I have hosted many friends from around the world and am happy to extend my home to the AirBnB universe. The rest of my spare time is devoted to cooking and eating out, music, skiing and reading about the obscure travel adventures of others.
