Hola! Mi casa es su casa! Hello! My home is your home!
Many travelers say the best way to experience your destination is to embed yourself among the locals and you'll experience your destination unlike no other. What better way to do all the touristic things in New York and experience New York like a New Yorker than to experience it in one of Manhattan’s vibrant neighborhoods, Inwood, a northern Manhattan neighborhood. You'll get a glimpse of what life is like for a real urban New Yorker in Uptown Manhattan.
The room has a full size bed which sleeps two adults comfortably.
The room is perfect for those who want to have a stay in Manhattan, who aren't easily intimated by first sights (neighborhood is safe with a busy urban appeal), get the most out of their New York City visit, and want a comfortable place to rest their head after a day of touring New York City.
The apartment is fully equipped with all basic household needs and more. To name a few are a hair blower, iron+board, umbrellas, printer.. Just ask! it is very likely to be there!
For your entertainment, the room has a very large flat screen T.V. with many cable channels and Turbo-Speed WiFi.
For coffee drinkers, we have a Coffee machine and a Coffee Grecca to give you the luxury of making your coffee the way you are familiar with.
For Tea Drinkers we offer a good selection of teas which include Green Tea, Black, Earl Grey, and others.
Interaction with Guests
When you stay with me, it will be like visiting a friend in a different country that you haven't seen for years. You will be welcomed with a smile and invited into my home as friends. Upon your arrival I'll orient you to the apartment, sit down and give you personalized tips to help you get the most out of your New York City visit. I'll even give you my list of my local favorite restaurants and recommended foods.
WELCOME TO THE MANHATTAN NEIGHBORHOOD OF "INWOOD"
Inwood, in the leafy northern stretch of Manhattan, is nothing short of it's natural charms. Walk around a bit and you can discover other you-don't-see-that-everyday sights. But despite Inwood regularly being hailed as the city's next-cool-neighborhood, it hasn't arrived at it's destination yet and you'll get the opportunity to immerse yourself in one of Manhattan's last changing neighborhoods.
With many shops and great restaurants open at all hours near by, you can easily grab a bite to eat before you start your touring of New York in the morning, or upon your return from a full day's of touring.
This is a perfect neighborhood to experience New York as a New Yorker living in Inwood.
The room is perfectly located half a block from the train station which can get you to Midtown Manhattan and Times Square in a 35 minute train ride.
Other Things to Note
TO ANY AIRBNB GUEST
I decided to offer airport/bus pick-up to NYC visitors because although many taxi's are honest, when some see a tourist, they tend to act as though they are a foreigner too and get "lost" while seeming super helpful and patient. Then you pay the meter and they expect a more generous tip.
I live in Manhattan in a very easy location to get to, close to both highways and I have experienced this sad situation a few times when guests have taken a taxi.
Arranging with me, you are worry-free to arrive home and you will know the fare in advance.
Please respect my home as if it were your own or better.
Be respectful in the apartment, everyone should feel comfortable
Apartment is drug-free and non-smoking 24 hours a day.
Common Areas should always be kept clean (Example: tub, sink, kitchen, etc..).
Air conditioner, tv, and lights should not be left on while not in the house.
No non-reserved guest entry at any time.
Chris is a very nice person. We felt like it was home. The room was perfect for our trip, clean, very close to the subway station, TV in it with internet and everything. The neighbourhood is living, latino, we enjoyed the atmostphere in this area feeling really safe and close to the coty center.
We had a good time with Chris. He made us feel right at home and he helped in what we needed. We recommend staying with Chris, he is a great guy, very welcoming and we were able to spend a good time in the city, the 1 train is literally one block away and the A train is also near so getting to places is super easy. There is food around the apartment that is cheap and delicious.
Chris' apartment was very comfortable and very New York :) It's small, but you gotta expect that in NYC! It was warm, it was comfortable and there was hot running water - all I ask for when I travel! The bed was clean and comfortable, and I liked the clothes hangars and rack, the drawers, and especially the free wifi. Chris was very good with communicating before and during the trip, through the airbnb app or through texting. It is a bit of a distance from midtown but it's a simple train ride that lets you off less than a block from his place. There are open-late mini groceries right there as well, which was handy for drinks, cereal, and fruit. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would love to stay again. Overall, know to expect a small space that is anything but a fancy big-name hotel - but that's the charm, and for the price I really enjoyed my stay at Chris'. I give this place five stars and I am glad I discovered this service before going to New York with my friend.
El hospedaje fue realmente bueno, fue mi segunda vez y realmente la habitacion estaba tal cual como esta en la foto, ademas que la ubicacion esta muy cerca de la estacion del metro, chris me ayudo mucho para conocer bien new york... La habitacion totalmente limpia muy acogedora. Gracias!
Warm welkom, Chris was heel behulpzaam als we tips nodig hadden waar we konden eten etc. Buurt is niet heel goed, maar je wordt er zeker niet lastig gevallen ofzo. Gebouw is in slechte staat, maar kamer is verder prima in relatie tot wat je ervoor betaald.
Estamos muy contentos con nuestra estancia! Era la primera vez que usábamos Airbnb pero Chris nos hizo sentir como en casa. Es una persona muy atenta y amigable. El apartamento es muy limpio y acogedor, teníamos todo lo que necesitábamos. Está muy bien situado cerca del tren y es un barrio muy rico en gastronomía latina. Chris nos sugirió muy buenos sitios donde comer y disfrutar de nuestra estancia. Estamos muy agradecidos con él, es un gran anfitrión! Sin duda lo recomendamos y si volvemos a NYC elegiremos su apartamento.
