Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • This was my first time experience airbnb. Agnes was a great host for these three reasons. First, she gave us a special discount rate for 3 people. Secondly, it was midnight when we checked in, but Agnes gave us a warm welcome. She detailly showed us around the house. Lastly, the guest can have a full access to her kitchen, which is fully stock of food. We saved a couple bucks for a long trip by eating breakfast at her house. Also, there is a park with a pool outside the apartment, which played music every weekend in the summer. Very safe, exciting, and convenient area. You would love it.

  • Agnes was a very attentive host and the room was spacious and quiet. Agnes had provided lots of extra amenities such as various snacks and bottled water as well. The air conditioner worked well and the shared bathroom was clean. Agnes was also very kind and attentive about providing information about lots of things to see in New York City. Agnes also did not yell at us when we mistakenly went to the 7th floor (the roof) in trying to find her apartment and an enormously loud alarm sounded--at 2 am. I personally felt somewhat bad about having to wake Agnes up since we got in to NYC quite late, but she was gracious about it. As promised, the area was convenient to the subway and the express train made travel down to the main tourist areas quite quick.

  • We were visiting New York for one weekend, and very much enjoyed the city as well as the stay with Agnes. She was very kind, the room was clean, and: Everything (!) was provided. Linen, towels, toothbrushes, and even water, beverages, chips and chocolate. That was terrific! We were allowed to use Agnes' Kitchen and help ourself to coffee and cereals, which was perfect for a one-night-trip. The apartment was very close to the subway, and the area felt very safe, also at night. Consider that it will take about 20-30 minutes to get to Manhattan - if that doesn't bother you, we can recommend Agnes and her room.

  • Agnes was a wonderful host for our one week trip to New York! She sent extensive emails and tips to get around in New York. The flat is situated in a nice area, very close to multiple subway routes, so it is very easy to reach other destinations in Manhattan.

    Agnes was of great help and she made us feel very welcome, definitely would go back! Her hospitality made this experience even better!

  • We had a lovely stay, a brill end location. The room house was very clean. And we had a lovely supply in the room of water and snacks. Would highly recommend It to any one.

  • Agnes apartment was very nice and spacious. Overall as a host she was extremely accommodating. She gave us everything we needed included towels and refreshments. The apartment is in a great location in uptown manhattan and the nearest train station is about a 2 min walk. The apartment was very clean and was easy to go in and out of. Would definitely recommend her.

  • Nous avons été très bien accueilli par Agnès dès notre arrivée.
    Des petites choses a grignoter et à boire sont mis à disposition dans la chambre.
    Appartement calme.
    Nous ne parlions pas beaucoup anglais ce qui a un peu compliqué les choses pour nous.
    Agnès héberge un ami à elle qui n'est pas forcément très agréable mais ce détail est vite oublié de par sa disponibilité et sa gentillesse.
    Appartement à 15 minutes en métro de Times square
    Si nous avions a revenir a NYC nous n hésiterions pas a revenir au même endroit.

  • Agnes puts me to shame as a hostess. Her place was so clean that I knew that if there was any dirt, I had carried it in. I slept very well in her home. And everything was great: directions, amenities, neighborhood. I really enjoyed my stay with Agnes and appreciated her love of New York.

    May 2014
  • El piso esta en un zona accesible, tranquila y bien comunicada. Puedes notar la vida en el barrio desde el primero momento. El piso es de fácil acceso desde el metro y a poca distancia. Agnes nos trato como más que huéspedes abriendo su casa y ofreciéndonos su abundante hospitalidad.
    La habitación y la casa disponen de todas comodidades descritas en la web, además de estar bien cuidada y nosotros lo encontramos todo excelente.
    Volveremos a la gran manzana y nos quedáramos con Agnes Seguro !!
    Great Stay!!!

    May 2014
  • L'accueil a été agréable. Agnès est disponible pour donner des infos : lieux à visiter, musique, shopping, restaurants...
    L'appartement est très bien situé par rapport au métro (5 min à pieds) pour aller directement dans le centre de Manhattan (10-15 min) et pour accéder à Harlem.
    Le quartier est calme, résidentiel et bénéficie de quelques commerces d'alimentation.

Traveled extensively. Fluent in spanish. Understand Portuguese. I am friendly, engaging and charismatic. A service oriented host, I aim to help everyone, feel welcome and at home. I am your guide from point of contact, through to the end your stay. I LOVE my city and more specifically, living in Harlem. Love all music, but am a jazz aficionado. Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything -Plato
