Our stay was great, and I would definitely recommend this listing and stay there again, though there were a few small issues.
The room is as described -- except that one of the pull-out couches is broken (which we gathered from another review). The location (and view) is amazing. There was space for 4 adults and 3 small (3 and under) children with bed sharing / sleeping on the couch that didn't pull out, and the host even generously provided us with a pack n play and a couple small strollers! The place was clean and in good shape and was pleasant to stay in. (I didn't notice any cigarette odor at all, as some past reviewers described.) People in the building seemed friendly too.
There was a bit of misinformation with parking though. Our host said we were okay to park on the street from Friday night through the weekend, but parking is actually restricted on Saturdays 7am-7pm on the block the building is on -- we ended up with an expensive parking ticket and our car was towed. (We were fine Saturday 7pm through Monday 7am though.) This is mostly *my* fault for not following the signs, however the incorrect recommendation did add to the confusion of an already hard to understand signs. I wouldn't fault our host for this, but just a heads up for anyone parking to confirm the details on your own.
Response time was a little slow in advance too. It wasn't a problem in the end, but I was a little worried at times, with confirmation of the reservation taking ~21 hours, and details of the key exchange being left to day of (which was a bit tricky for, being in transit and without a steady internet connection). I suppose we could have reached out earlier though instead of waiting for our host, and everything worked out fine and was smooth. Just a little uncertainty, but no actual problems.
Aside from some minor quibbles, it was a great apartment, great location, generous host, and I would certainly stay there again and recommend the place to others.
We, family of 5, stayed for 5 nights in July. The apartment was very comfortable and spacey, with great location and views, clean and accessorized. Yet, 2 things disturbed a bit: there is no dinning table for a family, and there is a constant noise of air conditioning outside, when opening the windows for ventilation. We had a nice stay.
Fantastisk beliggenhed helt tæt på Empire State Building og med en super udsigt.
Lejligheden skulle først gøres ren da vi ankom, og er lidt sparsomt møbleret - ellers var alt fint.
Everything was perfect! Laura replied very quick. The apartment is really next to the Empire State Building :) you can see it from the window. The apartment is just as it is on the pictures. It was comfortable for 5 persona too! We had everything we needed in it! I really recommend Laura and her apartment and I would choose it again! Thanks
The listing was accurate in describing the great views of skyline. It was also very spacious for a NY apartment. We were frustrated, however, because we specifically searched for an apartment that had three beds. When we arrived, we were told one of the sofa beds was broken. We expressed our disappointment, and the host indicated that someone could sleep on the couch. This was not a real solution, nor a comfortable one. The mattress on the double bed was also very uncomfortable. As others have noted, the cigarette odor from the bathroom also made the conditions unpleasant. Finally, the host was not great at communicating. There were long delays in getting back to us, and we were left until the last minute to find out where we would meet for key exchange. This was unsettling when traveling with two children. At the proposed meeting spot (Starbucks), the host was also about 20 minutes late to meet us and didn't respond to texts/messages. I would not recommend this particular Airbnb host/apartment.
We felt welcome, location is perfect. Simple and easy communication with the host.
We had a great stay in Lauras and Dexters apt. The location was perfect. I do recommend it.
Lägenheten var rymlig nog för oss, fyra vuxna och ett barn. Utsikten var spektakulär. Nära till allt. Den var ändå tyst och lugn. Den var kanske inte så ren som vissa tidigare beskrivit och det var tumme ner för den största bäddsoffan som vi hade räknat med att använda. Den var trasig och obrukbar som bäddsoffa. Jag skulle, trots några minus, lätt kunna boka denna igen. Centralt och bekvämt avstånd till det mesta.
