Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Meine Frau und ich können die Unterkunft insgesamt empfehlen. Federico und seine Frau sind freundliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeber. Sie haben uns mit Informationen und ersten Lebensmitteln versorgt. Wir wurden sogar für einen Abend zu einem Abendessen in ihrer privaten Wohnung eingeladen. Nun zu den Einzelheiten: Zur gemieteten Wohnung: Die Wohnung befindet sich im ausgebauten Keller des Hauses, was typisch amerikanisch ist. Der Eingang führt über eine enge Treppe hinab, deren Stufen teilweise unterschiedliche Höhen haben. Für korpulente Menschen und bei sperrigem Gepäck (große Koffer) ist dies kompliziert. Die Wohnung war sauber und in einem ordentlichen Zustand, das Bad ist sehr sauber gewesen. Die Innenausstattung ist gemütlich und kuschelig, alleine schon durch den Gaskamin (geschützt durch Glas). Das kostenlose WIFI ist nicht durchgängig erreichbar, hat ein schwaches Signal und ist langsam. Die Deckenhöhe ist teilweise nur 1,75 m hoch, was historisch bedingt ist. Das Bett könnte länger sein (momentan ca. 1,80 m lang). Für Familien mit Kleinkindern empfiehlt es sich vor der Buchung nachzufragen. Gesamtbewertung: Für einen Kurzurlaub bis zu 7 Tagen sehr gut geeignet. Check-In & Check-Out waren bei uns individuell absprechbar. Preis-Leistungsverhältnis, Lage und Ausstattung für New York sind als sehr gut zu bewerten. Hinweise/ Tipps: Die Subways sind füßläufig (145th st.) innerhalb von 5 Minuten erreichbar. Restaurants, Cafés und Supermärkte sind gleich ums Eck Empfehlung: Chipped Cup für Kaffee & O-Town als Supermarkt zwischen 149th und 150th St Weitere Empfehlungen für New York online unter Yelp im Internet (auch selbst getestet) zu finden. Review: My wife and I can recommend the flat. Federico and his wife are friendly and helpful hosts. They have provided us with information and first foods. We were even invited for an evening to a dinner in their private apartment. Now more the details of the flat: For the rented flat: • The apartment is located on the ground floor of the house, which is typically American. • The entrance leads down a narrow staircase whose steps have partially different heights. For obese humans and bulky luggage (large suitcases), this is complicated. • The apartment was clean and in a good condition, the bathroom is very clean . The interior is cozy and cuddly not even notice the gas fireplace (protected by glass). • The free WIFI is not consistently accessible, has a weak signal and slow. • The ceiling height is partly only 1.75 m high, which is historically. • The bed could be longer (currently approximately 1.80 m long). • For families with small children it is advisable to inquire before booking. Overall rating: • Ideal for either a short break up to 7 days. • Check- in & check- out were individually negotiable. • Value for money, location and amenities for New York are very well evaluated. Tips / Hints: • The subways within walking distance (145th St.) 5 minutes. • Restaurants, cafes and supermarkets are just around the corner. Recommendation: Chipped Cup for Coffee & O-Town as a supermarket between 149th and 150th St. Other Recommendations for New York online...

  • We had a very nice stay. It was our first airbnb experience and it couldn't have been better. Federico was such a good host, always available to help out and give recommendations. The place is perfect for a couple and it's even big enough if you travel with a small child as we did. Definitely Federico knows how to make you feel welcome, comfortable and at home. He has got the talent of spreading kindness and warmth that we will always remember.

  • Excelente la atencion del anfitrion. Federico y su hija Maria fueron muy amables. Al llegar Federico no estaba, y me atendio la hija. Despues, vino él a presentarse.
    El departamento muy lindo, la zona muy calma. Hay varias lineas del subway que pasan cerca, por la 145st.
    La verdad se la paso muy bien, en mi primer visita a Nueva York
    Recomiendo el departamento de Federico.

    Muchas gracias por todo.

    Saludos desde Argentina, Tomas

  • Pasamos unos días estupendos en el apartamento de Federico.
    Está situado en un barrio muy bonito y muy bien comunicado.
    El apartamento es tal y como aparece en las fotos, con todo lo necesario para una estancia cómoda.

  • All I wish is I had more time to stay! Federico and his wife are fantastic! They fulfilled my dream of living like a real New Yorker. I felt comfortable and safe at all times. The market and subway are close by so the location is perfect. The fireplace was also perfect for the cold temps we experienced in February. Again, I wish I didn't have to leave. I'll definitely be staying here again. My home away from home. Thank you tons Federico and Margo for everything!

  • Increíble y perfecto!
    La casa es una pasada, preciosa y muy acogedora.
    Hemos estado durante la ola de frío y era llegar a casa a la noche después de haber pateado NY y tener un hogar caliente y acogedor.
    Federico y su mujer son dos anfitriones que se desviven por que tu estancia sea perfecta.
    La cama grande y comodísima, El baño perfecto, ducha ardiendo (qué gozada!!!), cocina para prepararte lo que quieras… el sofá y la chimenea que te relaja de lo lindo y lo mejor el secret garden que te da la sensación de estar en un oasis dentro de la ciudad.
    Salir a la noche a tomarse un thé al jardín no tiene precio!!! Un verdadero lujo!!!
    El barrio 100% seguro, con multitud de sitios para poder comer, con Grocerys, Delis, Cafés, Pizza, Farmacias… para hacer compra, variedad de supermercados. Todo a la vuelta de la esquina!
    Dos paradas de metro a 3 minutos de casa, por la que pasan líneas de metro tanto express como locales que te dejan en el centro en 20 minutos. Autobuses que te conectan con otros barrios y que también bajan al centro. Totalmente recomendable coger el autobús un (email hidden) al centro, así vas viendo diferentes barrios y zonas, bordeando el Hudson River.
    Por la noche no se oye ni un solo ruido, paz absoluta, descanso asegurado.
    Volver a la noche después de todo un día andando de museos, calles, rascacielos, metro, tráfico… salir en cualquiera de las paradas de metro y recorrer el barrio tranquilamente, disfrutando de Harlem.
    Para nosotros ha sido un segundo hogar desde el primer día, el lujo de poder vivir en una casa histórica Brownstone de Harlem y por supuesto que volveremos a visitar NY y volveremos a casa de Federico, porque esa casa ya tiene una pequeña parte en nuestras vidas.
    Muchísimas gracias Federico y Margo por todo!

    The very perfect place to stay if you want to have a calm, quiet and peaceful stay in NYC.
    Neighborhood 100% safe, charm and quiet, not a noise during the night, perfect sleep, without the stress of the city and just a 20' to Times Square!
    COZY is the word!
    Thanks Federico and his wife for all!!!
    We'll come again to visit you!

  • Federico is a great host! We absolutely loved our stay at his cozy house!
    The bed is super comfortable and the fireplace makes the room very warm and cozy.
    We would love to stay at Federico's again when we will visit NYC next time!

  • The apartment is really cozy and quiet!
    Everything was perfect, Federico and his wife are very friendly.
    The neighborhood is nice and safe, which makes you feel confortable when walking from the subway to the apartment late of night.
    Also you can find everything that you need near the two avenues (groceries, laundry, restaurants, pharmacy and etc).
    And very important... the fireplace and the bathtube are AWSOME!!! Is so good to use them when you arrive late, tired and freezing at winter :)
    If we ever return to New York and Federico still rent this apartment, we will surely stay there!

  • We've had a great time at Federico's! The place was exactly as described in the pictures, absolutely lovely! And it was a few minutes on subway (take the A Train, as Ella sang) from anywhere in Midtown or Downtown Manhattan. We had a great time there!

    December 2013
  • I loved this place! it was quiet and cozy exactly as the name described. My wife and I were in love the first day we arrived there are two grocery stores nearby and since this place has a full kitchen, making breakfast in bed for my wife made the experience unforgettable. We went for our honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for a better time! Thanks Federico!

I was born in the Dominican Republic and went to school in Madrid Spain. I love living in diverse multiethnic New York and I enjoy the variety of foods, people and cultures. I especially enjoy my neighborhood because of the friendly nature of everyone on my block. One of the hidden treats that my neighborhood has to offer is the Hispanic Society of America Museum, which is on par with the Metropolitian in its collection of art from Spain. It has paintings by many Spanish masters as well scuplture from every age of Spain's history. It is just three blocks from my home I can see a Velasquez or Goya anytime I want. It is treasure of Spanish art. We believe in welcoming our guests, and enjoying the diverse people and cultures that these encounters bring. I find that learning about other places and cultures is interesting. All humans share a common decency, respect and love for one another. This coming together of people from all over the world is the essence of New York, unquestionably a very wonderful place right now, of which I am lucky to enjoy.
