WINTER 2014 SPECIAL: $25 select nights BEST RATE FOR THE BEST ROOM
La verdad es que Cris es un excelente anfitrión, en todo momento fue amable y soluciono todos nuestros inconvenientes y dudas. Creo que su personalidad hace que la estadía sea muy buena.
En cuanto el departamento, son unos 30 minutos en subte, y en una primera instancia el barrio puede parecer peligroso, aunque la verdad es que es seguro. La habitación estaba muy bien, limpia, confortable y con un colchón excelente. Lo único criticable es que Cris a improvisado su habitación con unas cortinas en lo que originalmente era el comedor, por lo que el espacio que queda es muy reducido, además de verse desprolijo.
We had a very comfortable stay at Chris' place.
The apartment is IN Manhattan and literally a 1-minute walk to the subway station that takes you into lower Manhattan.
Good security for the building and also the apartment. There are two bedrooms, each with lock-and-key access.
The apartment is well-heated, which is great for winters. You will be nice and cozy inside.
The bed was comfortable with good clean sheets, and we overslept every morning.
The large flat-screen TV is ideal if the weather outside is terrible, and the mini-fridge in the room was a nice touch!
Plenty of restaurants around (mostly Latin) that won't punch a hole in your wallet. Chris suggested a couple of eateries that we really enjoyed.
Chris was very welcoming and made sure we were never short of anything in the apartment.
Chris was an amazing host. The apartment was great! Kitchen fully stocked with pots, pans, cooking tools, all of which he let both my boyfriend and I have complete usage of. Bathroom was always clean,with great hot water pressure and loads of shampoo and conditioner left by other guests. The room was very spacious, we arrived during the a snow storm and the heat in the room was great, the cable on the tv was a great pass time during the storm and i was even able to connect my computer and watch netflix on the screen. My boyfriend and I will definitely stay at Chris's again in the future. Chris was an incredible host!
Staying with Chris was awesome! He is so cool to be around. Really goes out of his way to make you comfortable during your stay. My bf and I enjoyed hanging out with him and talking for hours. He helped us with maps and telling us all the cool places to dine. We would definitely stay with him next time we go to NYC! Thank you Chris! :)
La estada con Chris fue buena. Él es muy atento y amable y está para todo lo que necesites. Las fotso dan muy buena impresión y cuando llegas al principio ves que son las típicas fotos que se hacen cuando todo está perfecto, pero igualmente estuvimos muy bien todo limpio y perfecto.
My family (two adults & 2 yr old.) spent one week at Chris' place. It was expertly basic, it had every thing we need (small fridge and good internet) and nothing we did not need (nothing for two year olds to break, and no extra lodginging charges). The home is warm and comfortable, and Chris is a very open and caring person. He was very helpful letting us know where to get good grub and the best route from airport to his home. Even though I have family in New York, I felt it would be more relaxing to stay at a B&B. It was perfect. Chris felt like family with none of the complex dynamics. Chris is consider "next to kin" in my book and we would love to visit again and get to know him better. Best Wishes Chris :)
Hi there! We spent a wonderful week in NYC living with Chris. He's very friendly guy, nice to talk to, funny. About the flat: close to underground, easy to reach from JFK, not far from central park. Though it takes a while to get from any part of the city to another by metro. Flat is warm (important if you travel in winter), has all facilities except maybe a washing machine or i just didnt find it. There were three of us living in one room and i think its pretty tiny for 3 but enough for two people. Also there were few other people living in the flat the same time so sometimes the bath was busy, but thats not a big problem. So generally: nice place for a budget stay, and i highly recommend It
Chris is a very hospitable person and puts the convenience of guests above his.
Three of us were there at his place for a brief stay of 2 days and didn't have a single issue with our stay- be it space, cleanliness, bathroom, or check-in/out process. The proximity to MTA station is indeed a huge advantage in New York city- and a single line connects major attractions from Chris' place.
Would definitely love to stay at your place again, Chris. :)
Chris is a very nice host. Great personality! He's always ready to help us when we need sth. He shared with us his Chinese tea and we talked a lot the other night! Chris is so cute that he told us many stories between he and his guests around the world! As to the apartment, I have to say that it's a great place because it's very close to subway line1. It really means a lot when there's a subway just downstairs of your house and can take you to downtown within 30 mins! I'll definitely recommend Chris' place to my friends if they are gonna travel to NYC in the future!
Chris was absolutely awesome! Extremely kind individual. The room was clean, and the bed was pretty comfortable. My husband and I locked ourselves out of our room on accident, so we hung out on the couch in the living room and watched T.V. for a bit, but Chris came from his work to let us inside again. Very close to the subway, plus lots of food around the area. Chris will also give you some good advice about how to get around more efficiently. I would totally stay at Chris' place again! :) Thanks Chris and sorry for the inconvenience!! you are awesome!!
