I have a cat, so you must not have an allergy for cats.
I only take reservations for 3months in advance, so currently I take June through August reservations.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
No friends or guests can stay.
I have to use the bathroom weekday from 8am to 8:30am to get ready for work, so please avoid using the bathroom at that time.
Please do not flush tampons, pads, food, hair, or too much toilet tissue at a time in the toilet.
L'emplacement de l'appartement est idéal, à peine à 2mn à pied du métro 2 avenue et à 5mn de bowery, du coup on va partout assez rapidement.
Concernant l'appartement en lui-même, c'est parfait pour 2 ou 3 jours et ne pas être trop regardant sur létat de l'appartement.
Alina est très discrète, sur 3 nuits passé chez elle, nous l'avons croisé 2 fois 30 sec.
Alina was very nice to us. During our stay, we barely saw her but she was available to answer our questions which was great. The location was very good: close to transportation, and few minutes to walk to Chinatown, Little Italy and Soho, which was awesome!
I recommend this place to anyone looking for a great deal and wants to stay in the room only for sleep.
The cat was nice, but we could sense a smell of food cat in the kitchen/hallway. The walls of the room could use a paint(especially in the bathroom, as the paint is peeled off), but for us was ok because we didn't stay too long in the apartment. The air conditioning was very loud, but we were lucky because we didn't had to use it, as the outside temperature was low.
This place was convenient for us on our short stay in NYC. Easy access to the subway to the tourist attractions and there are plenty of shops, bars, restaurants etc right out side the door.
We barely saw our host but she was available to answer our questions which was ideal. It's as the host describes and the photos look accurate.
The apartment is small and a bit worn out (could use some paint!) but we had clean sheets, plenty of clean towels and a hot shower to come back to after days out in NYC which is all we needed :)
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Reina is incredibly accommodating! Our flight was delayed about 4 hours, I notified her immediately that we would check in a few hours late and she said it was no problem. She is very kind!
Our room was very clean. We had plenty of blankets and pillows.
The bathroom was clean as well, lots and lots of clean towels.
We didn't want to spend too much money on going out to eat every day, Reina didn't mind us using the the refrigerator and kitchen.
Overall our stay with Reina was awesome!
Awesome location, easy to get around and plenty of stuff close by. Reina was extremely unintrusive, which might be what you're looking for. We practically only saw each other the first day in two weeks. The other host, a cute and skinny kitty, always been around for a little friendly chat.
On the down side, the apt is kinda run-down, cosmetically only - it could use a paint coat, but it didn't bother me that much. What was more of an annoyance was cleanliness; The most used surfaces were averagely clean (if you're not super O.C.D. about it), say floors, shower... But all other areas were loudly screaming for a wipe, including occasional miniature tumbleweed here and there.
Overall, it's been a pretty nice place to stay at. Would I repeat? Surely.
Reina was very warm and welcoming although I wish I could say the same for her apartment.
The pictures of the listing we're not indicative of its true nature. The walls of the bedroom were stained and a victim of old age. The bathroom was even worse - there was mold on the ceilings and the lighting was poor. You could even see a huge section of the paint which had peeled away.
The apartment was in a fairly good location with easy access to the subway but it's important to note that it is situated slightly above a small Italian restaurant. The smoke from its kitchen were constantly seeping into the apartment which made it very hard to breathe.
That's not the only thing wrong with the location - the neighborhood is safe but late at night, there were numerous hooligans outside of the bodega below who we're loud and raucous. I found it difficult to sleep because of this.
The bed was right beneath a large window so it had a strong draft coming in. Would have been ok if it was the middle of summer but I stayed here in the winter so it was chilly. There is a heater in the room though.
Reina has a cat which does shed a bit (some of my pants had dander on it) but the cat keeps to itself.
Overall, I was shocked that so many reviewers gave this listing such a high rating given the moldy bathroom, the smells and noise. This is one of those cases where nothing is as it seems.
