Nous avons passé quelques jours très agréables chez Carine. Elle était une hôte sympa, discrète et toujours prête à nous renseigner (et en plus elle parle français ce qui est bien quand le niveau d'anglais est limité en conversation).
La chambre est telle qu'elle est décrite (spacieuse, grand lit confortable). Le quartier est vivant mais sans être trop bruyant. L'appartement est très bien situé (à 5 minutes à pied d'une station de métro qui vous amène en 20 minutes sur Times square).
Carine is a wonderful host! Carine was so hospitable and nice. Carine guided me through out my weekend in NYC. Carine even walked with me on the subway to teach me. This helped me so much. I would definitely refer her to my friends. I had an epic weekend. Thanks to Carine!
My boyfriend and I had a really great stay. The bedroom was nice and super spacious, our bed was super comfortable. The apartment as a whole is very nice. Our host Carine was friendly, although we barely saw her while we were there since we were out and about all day! The location is convenient. Only a train ride away from Manhattan, downtown NYC etc. The apartment is surrounded by small chops and restaurants that are really good. Easy access to public transit and public parks. What a nice spot! I totally recommend staying at Chez Carine :)
ortable. Our hosts were friendly, although we barely saw them while we were there since we were out wandering the town all day! The area is perfect, very close to Valencia street, cute shops, cafés and some of the best food we've eaten this trip. Easy access to public transit and public parks. What a nice spot! I totally recommend staying here. :)
Nice room, especially the decoration. Really comfortable and clean. Carine is so nice and provides useful information, such as the transportation. Definitely recommend it to my friends who will come to NY.
Le logement correspond à la description.
Il est situé à une dizaine de minutes des stations de métro. Très pratique si vous venez de l'aéroport JFK car c'est une ligne directe.
Le quartier est vivant et les supérettes sont juste en face de l'immeuble.
Carine est très accueillante même si nous ne l'avons pas beaucoup vu car nous partions tôt et rentrions tard.
Bref, je recommande pour se loger à prix contenu à Harlem.
Super accueil de Carine, qui a été très arrangeante avec nous car nous avons eu quelques problèmes de dates :-). L'appartement est tout juste parfait, fonctionnel très bien situé à New-York. Magasin juste au bas de l'immeuble. Nous le recommandons +++
