Guest must be mindful of the other person staying in the apt keeping it neat all the time and also making as little noise as possible when coming in or out the apt after silent hour.
Organic trash must be taken out every day to avoid proliferation of bugs and insects. Trash can is right down stairs in the way out of the apt what makes it easy to do.
Guest are NOT allowed to bring guests to the apt,
Chambre très agréable, bien que légèrement bruyante (je vis plutôt à la campagne habituellement) mais difficile de copier cela à quelques minute de Times square je suppose
Luiz, the host was really nice to have checked me in past 11:00 PM because of delay in my flight into NYC. He was very responsive to my questions both before and during my stay. The host has his own home, so he was not staying in the apartment. There was another room in the apartment that was rented to another guest during my stay.
Pros: This place is very clean and nice. The big plus is that it is located within walking distance to some many places of interest: theaters, Pier 83 for the Circle Line cruise, Times Square, Empire State Building, the metro station on 42nd Street, Hell's Kitchen just across from the apartment, pizza place for midnight snack, ... the list goes on. The apartment has a kitchen, fridge, and microwave oven, but I didn't cook.
Cons: The toilet is outside the apartment, and has no sink to wash your hands. Bring wet wipes or hand sanitizer. The bathroom has no hooks or hangers for your bath towel and clothing. Take a hanger with clips from the bedroom to hang your towel and clip your clothing, and hang the hanger on the shower curtain bar when you take a shower. Despite the cons, I still give this place a 5 star rating because of the pros that outweigh the cons.
For the room rate, the location, the clean, neat and secured apartment, and free WIFI, I would stay there again. Also, this room can sleep 2 people in the queen size bed (for couples or friends who don't mind sharing a bed). Just check with the host.
This was a gorgeous apartment in an extremely central, convenient area... minutes walk to the theatre district and very clean & welcoming with all you could need for a short stay. Luiz was lovely, friendly, generous and accommodating. The toilet being outside the apartment was not a problem as it is still private to this apartment and locked with a key... I have paid more to stay in a hostel in Manhattan with all bathroom facilities shared so I would definitely recommend this accommodation :)
When I got to NY I was completely overwhelmed with how busy it was! The place was clean and cosy and most importantly close to everything which was what I needed for the things I wanted to see!
Cleber makes very good recommendations yet respects your privacy! He is thoughtful as I could not sleep with the aircon on at night so he kept his door open so the airflow from his room would flow into mine. On my final day he also helped me with my luggage and walked it to the bus shuttle pickup to the airport.
The toilet is located outside of the apartment which was clean and was not a problem for me! Thankyou Cleber for your hospitality!
First of all, Luiz has been the perfect host. He was not too intrusive and also had the time to chat. Although I arrived late, Luiz made arrangements regarding the key to the apartment. Moreover, the apartment itself was ideal for me: not to large, with netflix, hulu and wifi plus the location is excellent for tourists. When the weather got hotter, the ac worked well. Although it was close to Times Square, I did not notice the hustle and bustle of the city until I exited the apartment building. In respect of the toilet outside the apartment- never really bothered me since it was only our apartment using it. The only thing is that one has to exit the apartment and enter into the next door, not an issue at all. All in all, Luiz's apartment is the best way to experience New York for a great price!
Location, location, location! Can't beat the location of Luiz's place! Just a couple blocks away from Times Square, many subway stops, Port Authority, Penn Station. Could not be more convenient!
The room is exactly as pictured, small but cozy. The bed is comfortable, and the apartment is very clean. The building is old, so it has some quirks, like the toilet in the hallway outside front door. But the toilet is clean and locked, not shared by anyone else, so I wasn't bothered at all. The building entrance is very secure, and I felt safe in the neighborhood.
Luiz was very friendly and flexible with my check in times. He waited for me to arrive from a much delayed flight. He took great care to show me the place and make sure I knew how to open and lock all doors, including the one to my room (I didn't feel that was necessary, but a nice option).
The place was very quiet and peaceful, even though it is located on bustling 9th Ave. Luiz was very mindful of my space. This was a perfect situation for me, as I was gone all day and really just needed a comfortable place to sleep.
CANNOT BEAT THE PRICE FOR TGE LOCATION. I will definitely stay with Luiz again if I need a place to crash in Manhattan.
