Private room in a high rise apartment in one of the best areas of NYC. The apartment building has a doorman, ATM, gym/sauna, laundry facilities, dry cleaning, wireless. The bathroom, living and kitchen are shared area. Private room is next to the balcony facing the new towers at Ground Zero (World Trade Center).
My balcony serves as the "private beach in the sky" since it gets a lot of sun in the summer. There are chairs and table for dining.
I am very clean, organized and neat so you will not have to worry about hygiene. I am a quiet person living in a very exciting city. I can give you advise on what to do, where to go, etc. I like to read, walk around the city and scavenge for bargains.
Apartment is centrally located and close to everything NYC has to offer. The apartment building is adjacent to one of NYC's most iconic buildings called "FLATIRON BUILDING" - a well photographed and filmed building. Madison Square Park is a beautiful park where you can get NYC's best hamburger from restaurateur Danny Meyer's Shake Shack - the line can be a mile long but it is worth the wait. In the summertime, there is an art installation in the park and there is free music entertainment at night, plus a big screen projects the US Open Championship, during the day. If you want a fancy meal, one of the world's best restaurants Danny Meyer's Eleven Madison is a stone throw away. If you want a good cup of joe, Stumptown Coffee (voted as one of NYC's best coffee places with the best looking baristas) at the Ace Hotel is around the corner.
You can walk to all and most tourist spots: the best fashion shops and restaurants, Broadway shows, clubs, art galleries, furniture and design stores, etc. I am a 10 block walk to Empire State Building, 20 blocks to Grand Central Station and Chrysler Bldg, Time Square, etc. You can easily walk to the west river (Hudson) and to the east river (FDR) should you want a day in the sun close to the water.
For entertainment, bars and clubs (gay and straight) are close and within a short walking distance. You can get drunk and not have to worry about a cab ride or waiting for the train ride back home. Should you need to get the subway, all the subway lines are within a block of each other going west, east, uptown, downtown.
From Grand Central Station where the JFK/LGA Airport buses drop you off, you can walk to my neighborhood provided that you are not carrying too much.
Claudio is an amazing person, loved live with it these days that I was in his apartment. Wish to point out Claudio's apartment for anyone wishing to know NY. Claudio next year will be again. Thanks for everything!
Claudio was an absolutely excellent and welcoming host. The apartment was impeccably decorated and outfitted with all of the necessary amenities. It was a place I looked forward to coming back to after my adventures in the city through the day. Claudio is highly recommended and I would visit again.
Fantastic. As much as I hate the cliché, this place really is an oasis of calm in New York. Clean, quiet, extremely comfortable, excellent location - and a very gracious host.
Claudio's apartment was ridiculously clean. He's a great host and even made me some delicious coffee! I would definitely recommend his place to everyone.
I had an amazing stay at Claudio's place. I need a place to stay for 3 days before leaving NY, and even though I booked the room at the last minute Claudio was kind enough to accommodate me. The apartment is very clean and beautiful, at an amazing location, and the private room was very comfortable and cozy. Perfect location for my last days in NY.
Claudio's apartment was not only beautiful, very clean and with breathtaking views of New York skyline, but it was perfect for my needs, going to some concerts at Madison Square Garden, that's at walking distance.
The room was perfect for one guest and very comfy bed.
Claudio was very friendly and helpful giving me some good advices for shopping and eating.
Claudio was fantastic to stay with. He was very welcoming, accommodating and helpful. The apartment was lovely and very well kept. Geographically it was very convenient to get around Manhattan from his place by foot or subway as you prefer. Will love to pay him a visit next time I'm in New York
Claudio was an excellent host - very considerate, communicated well & took a lot of pride in his apartment. The apt was very clean & well decorated; Great views from the bedroom & living room too. Very comfortable bed & linens. Also, its one of the best locations in Manhattan especially if plan to use the train (less than a block away). Marble bathroom, large shower & great water pressure. I've stayed in a half dozen other apts in NYC through AirBnb and Claudio's was my best experience! Looking forward to another visit!
I had a great time in NY! Claudio is a great and nice person. We had a lot of fun. We had dinner and went out for some drinks at weekend. He is a really good couterpart and a nice host.... The apartment was really clean and tidy. The view over the city was awesome. It's a great place to stay.
Hope to see u again in the city that never sleeps =)
Claudio es un excelente anfitrión, siempre dispuesto a ayudarte y aconsejarte respecto a los lugares para visitar y comprar.
El apartamento es totalmente limpio y ordenado tal como luce en las fotos, además de ser un lugar muy acogedor.
Hay múltiples lugares a la vuelta de la esquina para comer, comprar y admirar caminando. Las líneas del metro están a solo unos pasos y te conectan con cualquier área de la (website hidden) por esto que recomiendo totalmente la casa de Claudio para estar en Nueva York.
Muchas gracias Claudio por tu amabilidad y disposición.
