Great host - the best! Fabulous location close to Central Park and Subway.
John has four rooms for rent. One room has a privat bathroom. We had for one week room number three and shared the bathroom with two other rooms (four people). We checked in without any problems. Our key for the appartment were at the doorman of the house. The room and the bathroom were clean when we arrived. During our one week long stay there was no cleaninglady. The livingroom has AC but the room had no AC. During our stay the weather was not so hot, so it was ok. The room was ok but it didnt look like the one in the pictures. John sleeps on the couch. He is polite and helps with any Problems. The appartment is right next to the Central park. The subway is one block away. From middtown the taxidrive to the appartment costs about 13 Dollars. So for sleeping their it is totally ok!
Location was excellent, close to subway station and Central Park. In the description it is not well stablish that the house has 4 rooms for rent so you need to share the bathroom (that was the worst of it) so it was a surprise. Nevertheless it was clean.
The room is not the one of the pics but still was good. It lacks AC in the rooms so it can be too hot for summer so we needed to sleep with the door and window open.
OK experience. The vibe of this multi-unit host was somewhere between a hostel and a hotel.
Photos were not very accurate of room or location, although clean and very accessible.
Host was kind enough to allow a late pickup of bags, and was very responsive.
Still, just a little too impersonal for me to want to return; however, maybe that's unfair to this particular host - and maybe more of a general comment on NYC as a whole. Although shared some brief but good conversation with host's roommate who showed an interest to make a connection with guests.
Si nous n'étions pas déjà passé par trois locations très positives avant d'arriver à New york, nous n'aurions probablement pas renouvelé l'expérience avec Airbnb. L'expérience dans l'appartement de John n'était pas tout à fait ce pourquoi nous pensions avoir payé.
Les clefs nous ont été remises par le concierge. Nous n'avons pas rencontré John. Néanmoins, nous avons pu l'avoir au téléphone à propos de quelques mauvaises surprises aux quelles il a tenté de répondre comme il a pu. La chambre qui nous était attribuée ne ressemblait pas du tout à celle que nous avions loué sur le site. Bien qu'averti dès la réservation que nous serions avec notre fils, il n'y avait qu'un lit pour deux dans la chambre. C'est la locataire de la chambre d'à côté qui nous a indiqué l'existence d'un matelas dans l'armoire. Un matelas gonflable, ce qui n'était pas précisé. Je pense qu'il est important de le préciser dans l'annonce car pour ce qui nous concerne nous n'aurions pas loué si nous l'avions su. Le matelas gonflable (2 places) dans une chambre déjà bien petite nous aurait paru très encombrant s'il n'y avait pas eu un trou sur le côté! John a très vite proposé un nouveau matelas gonflable (1 place). Les draps que nous avons dû chercher dans l'armoire sentaient encore la transpiration pour la plupart. Il est important de savoir qu'il n'y a pas de climatisation dans la chambre, seconde surprise. Ce qui nous a value à trois dans une petite chambre par près de 29° Celsius, des nuits très peu reposantes. La salle de bain, empruntée par les locataires des différentes chambres, n'est pas souvent nettoyée. Et comme nous avions payé pour neuf nuits, nous nous attendions à ce que nos serviettes de bain soient changées au moins une fois. Il nous a fallu le demander et cela n'a pas été sans remarques!
L'endroit reste très bruyant même si il n'est pas, selon John, aussi bruyant que d'autres quartiers de New York. Le point positif reste sa localisation près de Central Park et le métro à 7 min à pied.
