I was sick of staying in hotels so decided to give Sylvia's place a go and I was really happy with everything.
Firstly, Sylvia was wonderful. Very friendly, knowledgeable, and checked in with me from time to time to make sure everything was going ok. She responded quickly when I had any questions and always had a solution.
The location is fantastic! You can literally walk to most of the major attractions of NYC (Time Square, MOMA, NY Library, Rockefeller Centre, Bryant Park, Bloomingdales, 5th Ave Shopping, Central Park etc etc). It's also convenient in terms of the subway and also getting cabs. There was never a time that I wanted one that I could not hail one from the front door of the building.
The apartment is spacious, bright and very well heated for the winter months.
Things to be aware of: as mentioned in the description, it is a 4 floor walk up. It didn't bother me at all, the only time I found it slightly challenging was with my luggage but it's only arriving and departing so it's not really a big deal in my eyes.
The kitchen is great for small convenient meals e.g. breakfast. Don't expect to be able to cook a roast there - but why would you when there are SO many amazing restaurants in the area.
All in all I would highly recommend staying here, you won't be disappointed!
Comfortable, spacious and well-equipped studio in the heart of Manhattan. Excellent price/quality ratio. Sylvia was extremely helpful and responsive.
Nice, well maintained place. Everything was clean. Sylvia was very helpful. Good restaurants in the neighborhood. Subway station close by.
I and my husband stayed in Sylvia's apartment for 10 nights: very nice location, very close to a lot of important attractions, subway and restaurants. The apartment is clean and tidy, confortable and full optional, even if it's quite old and it would need maintenance.We didn't meet Sylvia, cause she were out for holidays, but she was very helpful and present by mail.
We had a great experience in NYC!
My husband and I stayed at Sylvia's apartment whilst we were in NYC. The apartment was great; clean and tidy, located in a quieter area, in close proximity to some good restaurants and bars and an easy walk (5 min up the street) to the subway with access to major lines to take you to NYC main attractions and shopping, shopping, shopping!
As a host, Sylvia was always available and answered all of our questions before and during our stay very promptly. When we met Sylvia at the apartment we got to talking and Sylvia was so warm I felt like I was talking to an old friend!
This was our first time using airbnb and I must say that I was not disappointed. Would definitely recommend Sylvia as a host and the apartment to stay in for anyone looking to visit the concrete jungle!
We had an amazing time in Sylvia´s App and we recommend it to everyone!
Sylvia was an amazing host! We couldn't have asked for anything more. The apartment was fantastic, such a great location & it had everything you could want in it. Lots of bars & restaurants nearby but on a quiet side street. Sylvia was in constant touch before our arrival which was fantastic and the whole time we were there she was recommending restaurants and places to visit. I would definitely stay here on my next visit as the whole experience was brilliant made all the better by Sylvia!
I've stayed in this flat with my girlfriend for 4 nights and I'd definitely recommend it! The flat is located in a quite street but very close to the subway and bars/restaurants. You can easily walk (20-30 min) to major attractions in case you want to avoid undergrounds.
Sylvia is such a great host! She didn't just greet us in the flat when we arrived, she remained available the whole time we were there for any questions or issues we could have and she gave us a lot of useful tips for places to visit and restaurants to try.
The flat is quite warm in the winter as it's on the 5th floor so no risk of getting cold!
Definitely a great experience.
La estadía en lo de Sylvia fue grandiosa, ella nos recivió en el apartamento, y se acercó a la hora de irnos para entregarle la llave.
Durante la estadía siemrpe se mantuvo en contacto por si necesitabamos alguna ayuda mediante mensajes por airbnb.
El apartamento lo entregó super limpio, con te, café, cereales y más; el mismo está muy bien ubicado, muy cerca del metro y demás servicios, a solo 8 cuadras del central park!.
Los 4 pisos por escaleras, son un bien necesario, para poder comer de todo en NYC sin sentirse culpable.
Sylvia, i wrote this words in spanish because it´s easier for us, also, you can start to practise for your trip =).
We spent great time at your place, you´re a great host.
Hope to see you again,
Alejandro y Florencia
I highly recommend Sylvia's apartment in NYC. It was quiet and clean, and I was impressed by how well stocked it was - from shower supplies to toothpaste to an iron - everything you find in a nice hotel. Sylvia herself was incredibly responsive and easy to communicate with. A perfect first experience with airbnb!
