Logement qui a tous les avantages ! Très fonctionnel, dispose de tout le nécessaire, et surtout situé de façon plus qu'idéale.
La propriétaire est très accueillante (à la hauteur de sa réputation). Tout est fait pour bien se sentir, et si vous avez besoin de quoi que ce soit, elle est d'une disponiblité exemplaire.
J'aimerais que toutes nos expériences Airbnb se déroulent de cette façon, ce serait fantastique.
Hillary was a wonderful host! My boyfriend and I had encountered flight delays and would arrive later than we had arranged with Hillary to pick up the keys. Hillary made no problem out of this and made new arrangements with us right away, she was just great!
The neighborhood is very nice, the apartment is clean and tidy, subways, shops, restaurants, bars are all nearby. We will definitely be coming back!
Logement bien décrit, douillet pour 2 personnes et il est plutôt bien placé.
Nous n'avons pas vu Hillary mais elle nous avait laissé les clés à côté de l'appartement + un mot nous expliquant le bon déroulement.
We visited NYC during an extremely cold period.
Hilary was friendly and welcoming and showed us the apartment on our arrival. There were instructions for everything we needed, from how to use the TV to the location of the nearest convenience store. Excellent Wi-Fi.
The neighbourhood is terrific, in the heart of Midtown and walking distance to so many iconic locations. It felt safe and secure.
The apartment is very small, no bigger than a standard hotel room. For our trip it ticked the key boxes - warm, a comfy bed and a very good shower.
It could use a little TLC. The ceiling in the living area leaked water one morning which worried us a bit. Hilary assured us it is being fixed very soon. The seals around the bathroom taps/faucets need replacing but it all worked fine.
It was useful to have a fridge and clean crockery and cutlery, a nice touch. Not a lot of storage space for clothes but we had loads of bulky winter gear so I expect this is more of a problem in the winter months.
The only downside for us was the noise level - and this is outside Hilary's control. The walls of the apartments are paper thin and one of the neighbours has yappy dogs. And when they yap, she hollers at them. This neighbour was also prone to lengthy, and sweary, phone calls in the early hours which I slept through but kept my husband awake.
The windows don't have double glazing - sirens and car horns are a constant noise - but that's city living and I didn't mind.
Overall we really enjoyed staying at the Penthouse and I would recommend staying here.
Séjour agréable. Très bonne localisation, studio facilement accessible en bus et en métro. Quartier calme. Prix convenable. Espace bien chauffé surtout dans un période très froide.
L'appellation penthouse est un peu excessive : il s'agit d'un studio avec possibilité d'accès à un espace jardiné à l'étage du dessus.
Equipement limite pour prendre des repas : pas d'évier et nécessité de faire la vaisselle dans le petit lavabo de la salle de bains
Very nice experience ! The flat is great, and indications were very clear to access there! Hillary is a great host!
Another stay in a fantastic apartment. The check in was very easy and the apartment was even nicer than our stay last year due to some aesthetic improvements. I would definitely recommend this place for a stay.
I am a freelance fashion journalist and love living in NYC as well as travelling and seeing the world and love to meet new people from around the world.
