I WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND A WARM WELCOME TO YOU, and look forward to making your stay with us in New York City both pleasant and comfortable.
GORGEOUS NYC GETAWAY is an elegantly decorated and newly renovated one bedroom apartment in Midtown just a 7 minute walk to 5th avenue, Times Square, Central Park, Museum Mile, and two major subway stations.
It is not far from 5th avenue shopping and many excellent bars, clubs, and restaurants, located in a posh and very safe area of Manhattan, with a bank, supermarkets, pharmacy and wine store around the corner, bus across the street, and subway two corners away.
• A private bedroom with a queen size bed (sleeps two adults)
• A large couch in the living room that converts into a queen size bed
• A kitchen stocked with cooking utensils and dishes
• a high definition flatscreen TV with cable
• high speed wireless internet access (you must bring your own laptop to connect)
• A spacious private with both bathtub and shower.
The next time I'm in NYC, I'll choose to stay elsewhere. I wish I would have read the previous reviews more carefully because while it may get high marks for cleanliness, everyone has the same complaints -- it's very noisy and the bed is uncomfortable (it's not even a real mattress). There were functional yet annoying little details like tiny towels, lumpy old pillows, an awkward uncomfortable sofa, a high-maintenance WiFi that didn't always work, and a safety pin as the key ring. And while they apologized profusely, I didn't get specifics about the check-in, deposit and house rules until about 12 hours before my arrival. The deposit and cleaning fee must be in cash yet this isn't listed on the house rules. The same with your check in and out time. If you are late, there could be a penalty. It ended up working out OK but it was stressful to have that idea hanging over your head while you travel and hoping you don't incur extra fees because of flight delays. Yes, like everyone else says, there's a woman who only speaks Spanish to greet you and show you around the place. Sean got on the phone with me but it wasn't the same. Overall, it felt like a safe place to stay but sadly it ended up not being comfortable or easy.
Denise's review is untrue and unfair. PLEASE READ ALL THE REVIEWS BELOW AND YOU'LL SEE THAT THEY ARE EXCELLENT. It was clear from the beginning that Denise was trying to get money back from us.
The bed is CERTAINLY a real mattress, the couch is very comfortable, and the wifi works as well as possible given that there are only two suppliers in NYC, time warner and verizon, and they can both have trouble meeting demand for the entire city. Denise paid her deposit and cleaning fee using a credit card so it makes no sense that she would say it can only be paid in cash. Contrary to what she is saying, there is NO FEE for being late for your arrival.
Excellent séjour chez Marie. La localisation est très agréable pour les visites et la vie au quotidien.L'appartement est clair,fonctionnel et décoré de bon goût. Les bruits de la rue sont sensibles pour les personnes qui dorment dans le salon mais pas du tout dans la chambre. Les couchages sont confortables. Il est préférable de parler un peu espagnol car la charmante personne qui nous accueille est hispanophone. Je reviendrai sans aucun doute.
Here is the translation of Corinne's review into English:
Excellent stay with Marie. The location is very nice for sightseeing and daily life. The apartment is bright, functional and tastefully decorated. The street noises may affect those who are sensitive sleeping in the living room but not in the bedroom. The beds are comfortable. It is best to speak a little Spanish as the lovely person who greets us is Hispanic. I will return without any doubt.
Everything is clean and perfect.
Nice spot to stay in NYC.
We had a wonderful stay in Marie's apartment it was lovely, very clean and tidy.
The one drawback we have to mention is that Fabiola, the maid who checked us in/out only speaks Spanish, it was just a bit of a surprise and made communicating about the $400 deposit quite difficult for us.
Our stay was great, the location is very good, convenience stores, restaurants, shops (Bloomingdales) and subway stops very close.
My girlfriend and I would recommend this apartment to anyone.
Good location, clean apartment. There were two drawbacks. We met a maid who spoke only Spanish. We were not ready for this. Half an hour later we were able to call the owner to find out the details of the deposit of $ 400. Probably should warn guests that the representatives of the owners did not speak English. Furthermore, in the window was broken, it was not closed until the end of the top. We plugged the hole in the street with a blanket, otherwise the room was cold and impossible to sleep! I believe that the owners must take care of the living conditions. In March, it is cold enough to sleep with the window uncovered. If we had known about the problems with the window that would not have chosen this apartment.
Nous avons séjourné seulement 1 nuit, mais ce fut inoubliable ! L'appartement est très bien situé et tout est à proximité. En arrivant devant l'appartement, nous avions besoin d'aide pour localiser une place de stationnement et j'ai contacter l'hôte et en moins de 10 minutes j'avais un retour d'appel, qui nous a permis de stationner notre auto tout près. Même si notre séjour fut express à NYC, nous avons eu le temps de bien se reposer à l'appartement ! Merci pour votre bel accueil, nous n'hésiterons pas à revenir pour un séjour un peu plus long !
I had a good time staying here. Marie's apartment is neat and clean, well-furnished, and conveniently located. My interactions with Fabiola was pleasant. Everything went smoothly on the business end. Would recommend it.
Me and my husband stayed in the appartment for one weekend. We loved the place as well as the location. We are definately gonna rent it again when we go to NYC
My son and I had a great stay at this apartment. It was clean with everything working well. Perfect location near many restaurants and grocery stores. 2 blocks away the subway.The communication with the hosts was easy, and also the flexibility about check-in. I would like to return.
Perfect place to stay in NY. Hope to visit again soon.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
