About this listing
Beautiful room for rent in a very cool, newly renovated house, only TWO subway stops from midtown Manhattan. Three subway stops from Central Park and fifth Ave. You can throw a rock into Manhattan : ).
The room is located in a three bedroom apt which is fully renovated with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. The bedroom has a full size bed, night stand, air conditioner and closet. The kitchen is also fully loaded with everything needed for cooking and cleaning. I provide a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, pots, pans plates etc. The bathroom is cleaned daily and is also fully renovated. I provide toilet paper and a hair dryer.
There is also a dining room area with a table for four and another high table with two chairs off the kitchen. Great place to eat and hang out after a long day in Manhattan.
Guests have access to their room which has a lock on it for secure privacy and the dining room, kitchen and bathroom areas.
The house is located in Long Island City, one of the most popular and coolest neighborhoods in New York City. Not only is it one of the safest neighborhoods but there are so many cool restaurants, bars and shops very close by.
The 39th Ave Subway station on the N and Q subway line is only a five minute walk away and only two stops from Midtown Manhattan. So from the house door to Manhattan it would only take you 20 minutes. The subway also runs 24 hours.
Other Things to Note
Things I provide: clean sheets, blankets, pillows, hand soap, toilet paper, paper towels and an iron.
As well a blow up bed is available for an extra person at $25 a night.
In order to stay economical I do not provide towels, however, if you need them you could rent them at $3 per towel, which can be paid in cash at check in. Just please let me know in advance.
Hope to see you soon : )
No smoking in the house, please clean your own dishes when done and take out your trash to the front of the house.
Apart bien situé, les communs ne sont pas munis d'air-co qd on cuisine c'est irrespirable. l'air-co ds la chambre 3 fait trop de bruit, il faisait chaud on a du le couper, bref on a tous très mal dormi. nous avons cuisiné tous les jours, les ustensiles sont présents en suffisance. Nous sommes restés 4 nuits (3 personnes) , le ménage ds la sdb n'a jamais été fait.
Sinon Loreta nous a bien accueilli, malgré le fait qu'on ne l'a jamais vue.
Le troisième matelas était un gros matelas pneumatique
The room is perfect located to explore NYC. The facilities are basic, but in general good. Two little things, the floor of the bathroom was not that clean and our airco made too much noise when cooling. I communicated this with Loreta, the next day her cousin had a look at it, but the problem wasn't solved. After communicating this no response.
Overall I would recommend this location, good value for money.
We arrived and our room was still not ready. The kitchen was clean. However the bathroom was not shower was dirty and hair on floor kind of gross. There are 3 bedrooms we were in one and didn't know she had more guest. She should have told us that she had other guest. Especially when there is only one bathroom. Beds are on the floor there was A/C in the room no television but did have wifi. Bathroom did not have enough hot water for 7 people. More like going to a hostel. Somewhat disappointed.
The only positive thing about Loreta's room is the quality price ratio. In the NYC area the room is really cheap indeed. The apartment is also very close to the sub. However, be ready to share a really tiny bathroom with other guests: we were 6 adults!!! and to wait to take a shower! (we knew there would be other guests but the description didn't say there are 3 bedrooms accomodating 6 people at a time). The apartment and the bedroom itself were not clean and the cleanliness also depends on other guests...so...
Also it was hard to reach Loreta via calls or mails and it was quite annoying when it was a pressing need...
Please next time read your reservation itinerary there is all info regarding the house specially regarding the towels policy . Sorry for the towels policy but unfortunately my guests is taking my towels.
It is very easy to reach me true airbnb and I really answer all my e mails as soon I see them. My niece and I coming every day to clean the kitchen,livingroom and bathroom but how long will be clean during 24 hours until we come again is depending how clean the guests are.
How many apartments I have it is really not your business, I always try to satisfy my guests the best I can.
Really enjoyed our stay, rooms were clean, the location was brilliant, and really easy to get to from airport. Just as described
Buen anfitrión, estuvimos cómodos, a gusto y tranquilos. Nuestra estancia fue de 15 días. Tuvimos un par de inconvenientes con la conexión a internet y el agua caliente y en el momento Loreta y su hijo se apersonaron y resolvieron el problema

About the Host, Loreta
I was born in Croatia, Istria, but have lived in New York City for 23 years. I split my time between Rabac, Croatia and New York City. I have experience in renting apartments in Croatia and NYC for over 15 years. I have a son and daughter that are also in the business and they help me tremendously.
I'm a very clean, easy going person, who speaks three languages and tries to make all my guests feel as if they were at home. If you are swimming in Rabac or enjoying the busy city of New York I make sure you have everything you need during your stay and can usually recommend a good restaurant or bar : )
Hope to see you soon!
