Simon's apartment is absolutely beautiful. So private and quiet with all the comforts of home. Simon was a kind enough host to leave us with a comprehensive guide to eating and travelling throughout Harlem & New York, as well as a bowl of healthy snacks! He also came and met us on arrival and showed us around the apartment which was really thoughtful. Great location, short subway ride downtown to the main attractions. Thanks Simon!
The apartment was all we had hoped and more, for in every way. Simon was waiting even though we checked in late, and welcomed us warmly, explaining lots about thee area, good places to shop and eat. All in all an excellent place to stay. If I ever make it this far again I would choose Simons place! Five stars!
Simon nous avait donné tous les tuyaux pour arriver de JFK en taxi ou à moindre frais, solution que nous avons retenue . Il nous attendait à l'heure dite pour nous accueillir et nous donner d'autres informations intéressantes (et écrites) sur le quartier (restaurants, bars, supermarchés...). Tour de l'appartement rapide, rigoureusement tel que décrit : élégant, sobre, confortable, calme, très propre, bien équipé, et aussi très lumineux. Il présente l'avantage d'être éloigné de l'agitation de downtown, dans ce Harlem attachant de vie et de sincérité, avec de bonnes adresses à proximité, et de nombreuses églises pour écouter du Godspell. Le subway est seulement à 3 blocks !. Un coup de cœur pour notre "cantine", le Jacob : de la soul food au poids, sur place ou à emporter, génial et économique quand vous avez marché toute la journée. Habitant à l'étage au dessus, et se tenant à notre disposition "just in case" nous étions de surcroît en toute confiance.
Bref, malgré tout l'intérêt de cette fabuleuse ville de NY qui ne dort jamais, nous étions ravis de retourner dans notre "home, sweet home" : c'est un vrai luxe de rentrer dans un "chez soi" de cette qualité, d'avoir de la place pour s'étaler, se détendre, et prendre l'apéritif en testant toutes les sortes de chips que Simon avait disposées dans un panier d'accueil, après avoir bu la bouteille de vin qui nous avait aussi accueillis le premier soir.
Un excellent choix !
My girlfriend and I stayed in this apartment for 5 days in the middle of January 2015 and were delighted with our choice of accommodation. It looks just like it does in the pictures and it is just around the corner from a grocery store and a subway station stop. For me I wanted to stay somewhere close to Central Park so I could do a lap around running in the mornings...ticked that box. For my girlfriend she wanted to stay in a typical New York City apartment with the cute front door steps....ticked that box also. Every evening we returned late (12-3am) via the subway and felt safe with the short and well lit walk back to the apartment. Simon is very organised and had plenty of tips. All in all we had a great stay in this excellent apartment. Big Thank you Simon.
I loved the apartment - it was spacious, clean and comfortable, an easy 2 blocks from the subway and 2 blocks from a large supermarket - very convenient! Simon was a great host - he met me at the apartment and walked me through everything. It's a shame that I had to leave half way through my stay due to a gas leak as I would have happily stayed the entire 2 weeks. Would certainly consider staying there again on my next trip to NYC. Thank you Simon!
