Our stay in Stephanie's house was excellent! She and her family received us very well! She is very helpful and helped us a lot! The house is very close to the Central Park and the subway. The neighborhood is very nice and has a lot of options to eat, in a good price. We definitely stay there again! Thank you Stephanie!
Los huespedes fueron excelentes! Tanto Stephanie como Abdu fueron anfitriones geniales!Serviciales en todo momentos y siempre preguntando como la habíamos pasado y si necesitábamos ayuda con algo! Ellos han viajado mucho y entienden las distintas situaciones de los viajeros! Son muy buenas personas!
El barrio es bueno, la casa esta situada a 2 cuadras del central Park y tiene dos subtes muy cercanos que comunican de forma excelente con el resto de la ciudad.
Lo único malo, fue que la casa no cuenta con elevador.
Pero en fin, fue una experiencia magnifica!
J’ai été très bien accueillie, Stéphanie était à l’écoute et m’avez préparé un plan détaillé de New York. Elle m’a fait confiance en me donnant les clefs de l’appartement. Elle m’a conseillé sur toutes mes demandes ou interrogations sur des visites ou des spectacles. L’appartement est propre et il est situé au Nord de Central Park et on a accès au métro ainsi qu’au bus en deux minutes. Stéphanie est une personne qui est à l’écoute et qui aide beaucoup les autres. J’ai été ravie de partager mon séjour avec Stéphanie et toute sa famille. Merci à toi Stéphanie et à toute ta famille pour cet accueil si chaleureux
Nice welcome, the hosts were very kind. The room was not the one shown in the picture but the next-door one.
Thanks to Sergio and his wife for coming to stay with us. They were very nice and pleasant wit all our family. Thank you gain for staying with us. We apologize for having some people there as one guest's flight was canceled and had to stay 2 more nights with us. So there were 6 guests instead of 4 guests. To note that Starting November 13, we will only have one guest room so just for 2-3 guests max. Rom # 1 and #2 pictures are the same but they are just opposite of each others in the apartment and have exactly the same set-up (just the color of the wall si different:)
EXPENSIVE FOR WHAT IT OFFERS
Pros: Room was spacy, bed really comfortable, several clean towels were offered, toilette was clean. The hostess was attentive and her kids really nice and calm. Space was provided in the fridge and kitchen closet. Metro was quick and could easily get you downtown.
Cons: Rent is not to be shared with other tourists exclusively. Based on the publication and comments we thought there would be maximum 5, and we were actually 9. There were 2 bathrooms, one for our room to be shared with the other guests, and another for the family living there. Since it was a 5 members family, there were some rules to follow and means of living to adapt to, such as finding all of their shoes as soon as door was opened, not being able to cook at night, and of course understanding that their school stuff/toys might be left in share spaces. Also, they specifically asked to leave everything as found in the kitchen, but truly, we never found it entirely clean with sink empty in 9 days we spent there.
Inaccurate published data: When we made the reservation, it specifically said "No cooking after 9pm", however when we got there, we were told no cooking was allowed at all, since it could get to noisy for the kids at night. We were also unlucky with WiFi, which did not work 6 days out of 9 we were there. The main reason why we looked for an apartment was to save money on food, not being able to cook at night at all and not having WiFi service forced us to spend more time outside than expected, and eventually made us spend more money too. Finally, the living room which looks so nice in the pictures could not be used, as it was a family space (there is a small table for 2 in the kitchen.)
If you are merely looking for a comfortable bed, spacey room and clean bath, go ahead and take it! Our suggestion is that you make sure there are no other options before you make the reservation.
CARO PARA LO QUE OFRECEN
En resumen: Si bien la ubicacion no es mala por la practicidad del subte y los colectivos, no es el centro, y la comodidad del cuarto no compensa la incomodidad de vivir con toda una familia, que quizas si uno lo sabe de antemano no es grave, porque los chicos son un encanto y super respetuosos... Para nosotros 9 personas en un 4 ambientes es demasiado para 9 dias! Ademas no nos permitieron cocinar y no anduvo el Wifi, la dueña de casa fue atenta en todo momento, aun asi, no lo recomendamos salvo que el objetivo sea solo dormir y ahorrar plata.
Celeste and her boyfriend were nice guests however Celeste was very meticulous and particular in what she expected. While She was very demanding but polite and decent, I would recommend her to rather stay in a hotel next time as it doesn't seem to be the best setting for her to be around other people, especially a family, unless its absolutely perfect to her expectations. You cannot have the same expectations renting on Airbnb than staying in a spotless hotel. it is why you pay less in a . While we maintain a very clean apartment, I understand she was not comfortable with having children around and their toys in the family room (not shared) and seeing our daily lives (leaving a cup in the sink or a plate is not being dirty!), or seeing our shoes at the entrance of the apt… we offered she could use the kitchen at night but no cooking as mentioned on the profile (she could still use the microwave, fridge and mini oven, etc), Celeste was able to cook anytime during the day or morning, which she did. Wifi wasn't working for a few days unfortunately due to a external problem from Time warner (independent from our control)- For the price of $99/day I don't think the accommodation was too expensive as she described, and free wifi was available all around the building and the city anyway.We try to satisfy all our guests and we are successful at it most of the time. Thanks
Nous avons été très bien reçus par Stéphanie et sa famille, une famille très agréable. L'appartement était tel qu'il était décrit dans l'annonce. Le métro est à 3 minutes à pied, directement vers Times Square et le reste des endroits les plus touristiques de New York. Central Park est accessible à pied depuis l'appartement de Stéphanie. Nous sommes rentrés tard plusieurs fois sans avoir aucun soucis, le quartier est très sûr.
Je recommande l'adresse à tout le monde.
My sister and I had just started our USA trip and after travelling from Scotland it was really nice to arrive at Stephanie's home. She was very available and helpful when we needed infomation about the city but we also had our own space in our lovely room. Great neighbourhood which is close to public transport and all useful amenities including bars and restaurants. Loved the fact that we were next door to Central Park, and enjoyed many runs and walks in the area. Thank you Stephanie and family we thouroughly enjoyed our stay in New York City x x
