Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We stayed at Renatas and Mikes apartment for two weeks in June. From the get-go (since booking last year), we've felt very welcome by our hosts. Confirmation and information (recommendations for restaurants etc.) before departure felt very personal, and while we were there, our host checked in with us by mail or texting several times, making sure we lacked nothing.

    The apartment was very nice - matched the pictures perfectly - and felt very homy to us. The neighbors were interesting and welcoming, which made the experience even better for us.

    As far as Chelsea, ands the specific neighborhood - even the specific street - it has been by far the best location we've stayed at in NYC. Warm people, nice cafes and restaurants, supermarkets... everything. We'll never stay in another neighborhood in NYC again.

    And a whole - host, apt and neighborhood - a brilliant experience for us.

  • Très bon séjour à NYC : 5 jours avec mon fils de 18 ans. Appartement idéalement situé en plein centre de Manhattan, permettant de rejoindre à pied les sites majeurs (Flatiron, Empire State, Hign Line, Chelsea Market, bars nocturnes), ou le Métro à 3 minutes pour partir plus loin (ferries, Central Park, Musées d'art …)
    Bonne literie (idéal pour un couple qui partage le même lit), et sommeil garanti par le calme des lieux (nous avons pu dormir la fenêtre ouverte !).
    Au sein d'un quartier vivant avec tout ce qui est nécessaire à proximité (restos, épiceries, boulangerie …). Hôtes très très chaleureux et disponibles.

  • It is a really comfort apartment, although I don't need to see the host, everything is perfectly managed. And compare with the hotel price, this apartment is really valued for everything especially the location. I arrived very late in New York and it is still no problem to check in, this is so nice.

  • Je reviens juste de 5 jours passés avec mes enfants chez Renata &Mike. Nous avons adoré l'appartement qui est extrêmement bien situé au Centre de Manhattan pour tout visiter rapidement. Le quartier est calme, l'appartement donne sur une cour intérieure charmante évitant ainsi les bruits de la rue. L'appartement était très propre, chaud et agréable pour passer des moments de repos en famille. Relata et mise nous ont laissés beaucoup d'adresses utiles. L'organisation pour récupérer les clefs était parfaite : nous étions dans l'appartement seulement 2h après notre atterrissage à JFK. Nous regrettons juste de n'avoir pas pu contacter Mike & Renata pour leur confirmer notre arrivée. Nous ne pensions pas qu'ils seraient si inquiets. Ils se préoccupent beaucoup du bien être de leurs hôtes ....c'est rare.
    Si vous voulez réussir votre séjour à New York, n'hésitez pas a les contacter.

    Dominique was a great and left our home in perfect condition. Though we were unable to reach her during her trip, she let us know as soon she arrived back at her home that everything was great. We would love to host her and her family on their next trip. Renata and Mike

  • This apartment is fabulous, I am so glad that we booked to stay here. My friend and I stayed for four nights and we felt right at home straight away. It is immaculately clean and well presented and has everything that you could need. The neighbourhood feels safe and has ample local amenities. Renata and Mike provided us with an extensive list of places to eat and things to see in the area. Chelsea is an excellent location, the subway is really close to the apartment. We had trouble with the WIFI at times but Starbucks is right around the corner so that problem was easily solved. Mike and Renata are friendly, helpful and prompt in responding to any queries. I highly recommend this as a place to stay in NYC.

  • This was a lovely, clean apartment and well situated to the Highline, subway and restaurants. Renata and Mike are excellent hosts. Our visit to New York went without a hitch! Would recommend and stay here again.

  • We had a great time staying at Renata's and Mike's place. The location was perfect with easy access to the subway. The neighbourhood was nice and interesting with lots of restaurants and close to the fantastic Chelsea market as well as the High line. The appartment was nicely decorated and very clean. Communication with Mike was quick and efficient and the informstion sheets about restaurants etc was super. We did not get the wifi to work, but we are sure Mike will take care of that till next time. Many thanks to Renata and Mike.

  • Mike was extremely flexible on check-in and was very accommodating when we had to check in later than planned.

    There was a problem with the wifi when we were there which wasn't a huge issue, just a slight inconvenience.

    Perfect for a short stay in the city and close to everything!

  • Le studio est très propre, très fonctionnel. Nous étions trois et tout était parfait.
    Nos hôtes ont été disponibles avant et pendant notre séjour, répondant à nos questions dès que nécessaire.
    La situation est parfaite : a 2 blocs du métro et Time Square à quelques minutes de marche...
    Merci Renata et Mike !!!

  • We stayed at Renata and Mike's flat for four nights. The flat was just as it looks in the pictures - very cosy, comfortable and nicely decorated. It is in a great location as Chelsea is a lovely, quiet neighbourhood with nice cafes and bars. You can walk to all the main sights from here but it is away from all the hustle and bustle of midtown.
    The flat itself was clean and tidy. The shower was good and the bed was comfy. There was plenty of room for both of us. It was handy to have the little kitchen area and the fridge, which is something you probably would not get in a hotel.
    Renata was quick to respond when we had any questions/problems.
    The only downside was that the neighbours above were quite noisy, we could hear them when they were walking about due to squeaky/creaking floorboards. This happened in the middle of the night on a couple of occasions. However, I expect you get that with lots of flats in Manhattan!
    Overall however I would recommend this flat to others.
