I had a great stay! The best part of it was how clean and quiet it was. The neighborhood seems quite safe and not too far away from a subway station. Definitely recommend it!
We really enjoyed our 10 days.
The studio was indeed cozy. We found everything exactly as advertised. The pictures posted are a perfect representation.
WiFi was fast and reliable. Lots of hot water from the shower. Heating made it snugly warm (we were there in winter with up to -7°C).
Martha was nice and friendly and practical advise for us when we needed it.
We were allowed to leave the bags in the private hallway between checking out and going to the airport.
Would like to be back soon,
The hosts were great. Respectful of privacy. Very clean room.
Had everything in the room that I would have needed just like a hotel. Wifi connection was good. Neighborhood felt pretty safe and was a quick walk to the subway. Walking distance to the mall. I would stay here again.
Very nice room: clean and tidy, it had everything we needed to be comfortable, and check in/check out was very easy-going. Martha was a nice lady who was available if we had any questions. I would definitely stay here again when I am back in the area.
It is really a clean and comfortable studio. And also, the owner, Martha, is very kind.
I highly recommend staying with Rafael in Queens! I needed a short term place to stay while looking for a permanent home in NYC. I am new to the city and was unsure of where would be a good place to stay. Rafael's studio is quiet and clean, close to the subway and has a laundromat right around the corner. I was able to orient myself to the city without going crazy. Rafael was very helpful and easy to deal with. Overall, a great place to stay.
Great stay! I stayed here for just over a month and was very comfortable. As I enjoyed my stay I thought I'd flesh out the details a bit for you, the next guest. To clarify the description a bit this is a private entrance large bedroom with a large bathroom. There was a refrigerator, a microwave, a full set of dishware, glasses, cutlery and tools to clean them with. The bedroom is sunny, clean, quiet and recently refurbished with new floors and new furniture from ikea. The bed is a comfy queen, and there is a closet with plenty of room as well as two drawered side tables.
Internet via wifi was provided and is fast and stable, and has a strong signal in this unit.
The unit is in a converted home, where the upstairs has been converted into rental units and the downstairs is the hosts residence. So the on street entrance leads to an entry hall that provides access to all the units, each of which is doored off similar to an apartment building. It is entirely private and you will likely not run into anyone as you come and go.
The host, Martha (Rafael is her son), is a very nice lady and was very friendly and helpful during my stay. She is knowledgable about the area and was immediately available on the few occasions over the month where I had a question. She provided fresh linens and towels throughout my stay which was very kind of her.
The area is quiet and residential, about a 7 minute walk from the Grand Ave/Newtown subway station, which is on the MR lines. You are two stops away from Jackson Heights which provides access to the EMFR lines, and both JFK and LaGuardia airports are a straight shot from there. You can get to JFK for $7.50 via subway and the airtrain, if you dont want to splurge for a cab. It can take as little as 20m door to door to get into manhattan depending on where you are going, as the E train is express and fast.
There is a large shopping mall just past the subway station, with many shops, restaurants, and some large stores including Target. There are a variety of small restaurants, corner stores, and laundromats within a few blocks. Target has a full supermarket, and there is a Stop & Shop supermarket about 10 minutes walk up the road. There is a laundromat a couple blocks away. Queens best pizza and a nice pan-hispanic restaurant are also about a block and a half away.
I enjoyed my stay and I will probably be returning again soon!
When we arrived it was raining like crazy and we have walked from the subway with all of our luggage. Although we didn't meet Rafael during our 2 week stay, we met his lovely mother Martha who greeted us at the house. She gave us water and drinks so we didn't have to venture back out in the rain when we got in.
The studio was even better in person. The photo does not do it justice. Everything was brand new, down to the bed, linens, and extras. They were very hospitable and available. Martha and her husband even gave us a ride with our luggage to the subway when we were leaving.
I would definitely recommend staying here.
Many thanks for the lovely stay! xx
