Interaction with Guests
I'm at work a lot, but I'm always available by cell phone. I tend to keep to myself at home, but I'm happy to give recommendations on what to visit in the city, good restaurants, and help navigating the subway!
This Astoria neighborhood is diverse, friendly and safe. Within a few blocks you can find all kinds of restaurants and shops. The Socrates sculpture garden, Noguchi musem, Museum of the Moving Image are all a short walk away. (Also the best slice of pizza in NY can be found in my neighborhood.)
The N/Q Broadway stop is two blocks away, and it's just a few stops away from Manhattan! Laguardia Airport is an easy 15 minute cab ride.
Other Things to Note
This apartment is on a fourth floor walk-up. There is no elevator. Also I have a small, friendly dog.
This is a non-smoking apartment. Whenever possible I'm flexible with the check-in/check-out time. Just ask!
Fantastic apartment and fantastic host! Lauren responded very quickly to messages/questions, the room was lovely and very big and comfortable, quiet building, and extremely convenient. I highly recommend.
We had a great time at Lauren's place. It was a perfect location for travelling around the city and Lauren helped us with any questions we had. We really enjoyed the neighbourhood too and would definitely recommend the Brooklyn Bagel and Coffee Shop and the Post Scriptum pizza place on Broadway.
Great place to stay. Very close to metro 24/h.
Nice, clean and comfortable room. Lauren is very kind and thoughtful.
I recommend this place to all air bnb users.
Lauren is an excellent host! Communication with her was easy and prompt, making check-in a breeze, and the room was lovely. She provided all the information we could possibly have wanted, and her dog is the most adorable dog in the entire universe. I would happily stay here again.
Our host was very sweet, the room was comfortable, and the nieghborhood was safe. Metro was near by.
Lauren fut très chaleureuse a notre arrivé, elle nous à écris dès notre arrivé à l'aéroport pour nous dire qui sera la pour nous recevoir. Lauren est très discrète, et très aimable. L'appartement est très bien situé, jolie quartier, près des commerces et du métro, a 15min de Time Square. La chambre très spacieuse, avec tous de prévu, rien a dire comme le montre les photos. Nous ne parlions pas anglais il etait donc difficile pour nous de parler avec Lauren. Je le recommande.
Lauren was very friendly and helped us out with our lost baggage. The room with a/c was very nice! Thank you! Would book again!
