The largest department store in NYC, Macy's is just two avenues away, that's just two blocks. The Empire State Building is four blocks away on 34th St and 5th Ave. The hip Meatpacking district is a 10-15 walk, or 3 minute cab ride. Rockefeller Center is an 8 minute cab ride away, I can go on and on.
We take pride in taking care of our apt, it's cozy and taken care of with love. I consider myself a friendly person who loves meeting new people from all over the world.
No smoking or pets
Not a party environment. The building is family oriented. Safe and nicely maintained building,elevator, secure,intercom/key entry to building only.
The apartment was just as described - clean, comfortable and close to much that Manhattan has to offer. Bertha was incredible helpful and so quick to respond. We had a great stay and will definitely look for this listing again the next time we are in New York.
My husband and I spent 13 days at Bertha’s apartment and we definitely recommend the place.
The apartment is really really clean and clear with a super comfortable bed and hot (website hidden) works well as we faced 80ºF outside. Great couch and soft rug to put your feet up at the end of the day watching tv. Wifi worked perfectly. There is plenty of space for two and we managed to cook and chill some wine.
The location is perfectly close to the subway, restaurants and great delis and stores. The building is well taken care and neighbors are friendly.
We had a lot of concerns and questions since it was our first Airbnb experience and Bertha was very kind to reply on every message with lots of details to make us feel comfortable. She is a traveler herself and very understanding.
For first time travelers: check references of your host and read the reviews, and go for it! The experience of living as a native is priceless and Bertha’s place is a fantastic way to start.
For our hosts: we could not ask for more. Thanks for everything.
This was my first airbnb experience, and it's a shame because the bar is now set really really high! I stayed at Bertha's apartment for a couple of nights since I was taking the bar exam at Javits (which is two blocks away), and I couldn't have chosen a better place.
She was even kind enough to let me keep my bags there after I checked out since I wasn't allowed to take anything to the exam.
Though she and her husband were away on a trip, I met the housekeeper and Bertha made sure she kept in contact with me, and was very responsive whenever I texted her (and I texted her a lot.)
The apartment is cozy, yet spacious. The entire space was really modern, well-designed and should be comfortable for two. The place was spotless, and had all of the comforts of your own apartment.
With an air conditioner, a GREAT bed, a bathroom, flat panel TV, wifi and a fridge, I had everything I needed for those two nights.
The building is very family-oriented, and I had the pleasure of meeting some very kind tenants. As it is family oriented, it was quiet and peaceful.
Since I live in Queens, I probably won't be able to have the pleasure of AirBNB-ing here again, but the rest of you should definitely send booking requests!
I lived in Bertha's apartment for 2 weeks . It is spacious, clean and very comfortable. Though Bertha was away from the city on vacation, she ensured I have no problem in check in or during stay. The apt is very centrally located, has excellent connectivity ( bus , subway ) and in fact you can walk to most places of attractions easily . There are plenty of eating options just outside and even a strict vegetarian like me faced no problem . The kitchen in the apt is also well stuffed . The place is squeaky clean and gives a very warm home-like feeling. Bed is very comfortable . The place is ideal for a lonely traveler like me or a couple. The building is absolutely safe with CCTV and all and people I met in elevator or lobby were friendly folks. This was my first experience with NYC and airbnb and I had a fabulous time. Thank you Bertha .
Bertha and eduardo were fantatic hosts, they provided all the information needed to make my stay a pleasant one, also they were all the time very attentive and responsive regarding my needs, although they were out of NYC, they remained reachable via whatsapp.
The apartment is very well kept, the best thing at all were the matress and the pillows (I always have issues with hotel's pillows), but theirs were really nice and allowed me to have very good sleep. The apartment is quiet, naturally lit and has everything you need to have a pleasant stay in NYC.
I do appreciate the kindness and the suppert received from Bertha and eduardo. I wish all the best to them, while looking forward to stay in their apartment in the coming future.
RIght from the get-go Bertha was great - easy communication, timely messages and tons of useful information. Her apartment couldn't be cleaner OR in a better location. I've already recommended it to some friends heading to NYC later this year. Thanks so much for everything, it was perfect!!
It was our dream honey moon in New York and Bertha made it perfect. Notwithstanding the superb location of the apartment, Bertha made it personal and special by bringing us around the vicinity even though we arrived in New York late in the evening. Aside from the superb location of the apartment, it was clean, with a well equipped kitchen and a decently sized bath room. All in all, the apartment will be the only choice for us next time in the big apple. We are already thinking of Bertha as we write this review. Outstanding.
