About this listing
Large 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, closet and a captain bed. 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.
I don't know what Loreta did for us. We stayed Loreta's house for 10 days. We can't receive any answer of our question, even though she said "Any issues or questions don't hesitate to call or text me at (phone number hidden).".
Firstly, We had difficulty to enter the room. So we made a call several times, but she did not answer. Secondly, we asked the location of market and loundary. Even we asked twice. But she did not answer at all. Thirdly, the wifi of airbnb was not working all day long one day. So we asked her to check the wifi. But I don't know even she receive my message. She never answer the e-mail, phone call and text messages. I really really disappoint of her.
And there is no insect net at a combined sitting and dining room.
So when we after dinner, open the windows to let fresh air in.......the mosquitoes and flies came in too. Maybe she has to put a screen on a window.
However,The air conditioner of our room was very powerful. (But it is very noisy) And the bnb stay clear, generally. That's the advantage of this bnb.
If you check your e mail true airbnb you will find my messages that you never responded. I asked you about your name that I can pronounce because is in Korean or Chinese you never respond. I knock your room door you were not there. My cleaning lady asked you how are you is everything OK you just ignored her and left the apartment not even close the front door. So please just be honest I dont espect from my guests a lot but honestly and respect yes.
The room is clean, the perfect order in the apartment. Hosts privetlivye.Transport and shops near. All meets the stated conditions. We are happy!
Die Wegbeschreibung war falsch.Wir suchten nehr als eine Std. Mitten in der Nacht als wir Loreda anriefen nahm niemand ab und Sie rief auch nicht unmittelbar zurück. Das Zimmer war ok.Wir sahen Sie leider nie.
Chambre plus grande que ce que les photos ne laisse penser. Propre et aménagée en suffisance. Bien situé mais pas toujours bien desservi en métro surtout le soir. Petit inconvénient c'est la fenêtre qui ne s'ouvre. L'ac est dans la chambre mais c'est parfois bruyant donc pour la nuit c'est pas la meilleure solution. Il manque une troisième chaise pour manger dans la cuisine à 3. Sinon Loreta est très accessible, répond rapidement et nous aide pour le séjour.
Great place to stay. Very close to Manhattan and very nice apartment. A very helpful kitchen we I could cook dinner every night.

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!
