Our experience at Marie's was great. She was very welcoming and explained everything clearly upon arrival. The apartment is well located. It could be a little bit closer to subway (you have to walk 10 minutes or more to get to it) but you also have other means of transport to move. The neighbourhood is lovely, quiet, safe and full of shops of any kind. Inside the apartment everything was very clean and nice. New or almost new sheets and towels as well as an almost fully equipped kitchen (a microwave is missing). The bed was very comfortable and wifi and air conditioning worked perfectly. The relationship price quality is perfect. We definitely recommend this apartment for a young couple like us.
We spent three weeks in the apartment, and we were very very disappointed by the host.
First, it is really dusty and dirty :
- no cleaning done as it was said
- full of dust under the bed
- no toilet paper
- very dark inside
- 20 minutes walk to central park (not 10)
- 15 minutes walk to subway
- very noisy with the neighbour, especially upstairs taking a bath (sound like a airplane military landing) everymorning
- windows don't close very well (cold and noisy)
- bed bug (little insects) which sting
- no space for food in cupboards
- the bed smells the cat poop
- it is only for two persons
- mildew in the bathroom
- relocation in the apartment just next door with build works
Then, the owner asked us at the middle of our stay if it was possible to change of apartment because she did a mistake and had to host other people... so she purposed a friend's room... we refused and then, the last day, for the check out, she told us, the new guest did enough "sacrifice", so we had to go out early and depose our luggage in town... 50$ of deposit..
The price should be much lower, I don't recommend this host.
Marie was an excellent host. She responded to all questions and offered helpful information. She was flexible with check in/out times, which was extremely helpful. She also gave us some tips for good restaurants around town.
The apartment was in a safe location, within walking distance of food and the subway. Toiletries, linens, and appliances were all provided. The apartment was decorated very nicely. It had a welcoming feel.
Nous sommes restés une semaine chez Marie au mois de mars. Marie a été très sympathique par mail et a pris du temps pour répondre à nos questions.Elle ne vit pas sur place, c'est sa fille qui s'occupe de l'appartement.
L'appartement est un peu vieillot et sombre mais assez propre.Une des fenêtre de ferme pas et le lit est plutôt moyen.
Il est bien situé, assez loin de la zone touristique, il y a des écoles à côté, c'est un "vrai quartier habité" par des New Yorkais, ce qui est plutôt sympa Un petit marché le samedi, des restaus pas loin, 15 minutes à pieds du Met.
Il faut marcher 10 bonnes minutes pour attraper le métro et il faut bien compter 40 45 minutes pour arriver vers Wall Street, une demi -heure environ pour Times Square.
Expérience sympa pour les petits budgets (pas si petits que ça au final, mais bon, tout est très cher à New York!)
