This is a simple and clean, private room in a two bedroom apartment in a third floor walk-up. Your room has a full-size bed with clean sheets, clean towels, air conditioning (during the summer), heating (during the winter), a closet to hang your clothes, and plenty of extra space. The door on your room can also be locked with a key. We also provide a free mobile hotspot so you can connect your computer, phone, or tablet to the internet while you are walking around the city! This can help with directions, looking up places to go/eat, or just keeping in touch with friends and family.
Of course you will get a key during check-in and you can come and go as you please.
Aside from your bedroom, you will be sharing the living space, kitchen, and bathroom with the Hosts (Vincent and Nancy). The living space offers a comfortable space to crash after your day of touring NYC. There is Wi-Fi available, a TV with basic local channels (NBC, CBS, FOX, ABC), and other entertainment items (games, cards, PS3, blu-rays). The kitchen is available for you to use and includes a microwave and coffee maker. There is a hair dryer and an iron/ironing board if you need. And the bathroom is always clean and fully stocked with the essentials (soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc).
Interaction with Guests
We will likely be at work most of the day. Depending on your schedule and our work schedules we may or may not see you every day, but we are always more than happy to help with anything you need. We have been in NYC for quite a few years now, so can help with suggestions of places to go, or how to navigate the subway system. Don't hesitate to ask!
The apartment is located on a main street (Amsterdam Ave, between 131st and 133rd) that is almost always active. There are several quick food options right downstairs (bakery, deli, mexican, chinese), and many other good options several blocks away (italian, japanese, BBQ, american). Your bedroom faces the back of the building, so it is isolated from street noises and private. Although sometimes the neighbors make some noise, not much we can do about it in New York!
The best way to get around New York City is the subway. There are 5 subway lines (1, A express, C, B, D express) nearby. The 1-train on 125th and Broadway is about a 5-7 minute walk away (0.3 mile, or 0.5 km). The A, B, C, and D trains are about a 7-10 minute walk away (0.5 mile, or 0.75 km). There are also three bus lines (M11, M100, M101) running right to the front of the building. Of course we can always help point you in the right direction for most efficient travel to all other spots in the city.
Other Things to Note
Check-in is set for 4:00pm, and check-out is set for 11:00am. These times are very flexible and will depend on our schedules for the day and will need to be coordinated based on whether we have immediately overlapping guests. If you reserve, we will coordinate times about a week before your arrival.
Please message us with any questions you may have and a quick description of yourself if you are interested in booking.
We keep the apartment clean and tidy, and expect guests to do the same. Very simple, just clean up after yourself. Also no smoking inside the apartment, no parties, and no pets.
Vincent ist ein super Host! Er ist sehr offen, hatte für all unsere Fragen und Anliegen immer ein offenes Ohr und war super freundlich. Sogar verspätetes Gepäck hat er um 1 Uhr Nachts für uns angenommen.
Das Apartment ist sehr sauber und das Zimmer ist mittlerweile noch besser geworden als auf den Fotos. Vincent hat für ein zusätzliches Regal und einen Schreibtisch gesorgt. Wahnsinnig hilfreich war der tragbare Wlan Hotspot den Vincent zur Verfügung stellt. So hat man in ganz New York immer umsonst Internet.
Die Lage des Apartments ist einwandfrei. Ein großer Supermarkt mit allem was man sich vorstellen kann ist ca. 10 Gehminuten entfernt. Die nächste Ubahn Station ebenso 10 Gehminuten. Von dort sind es ca. 15 min bis Midtown und 25 min bis Downtown. Perfekt um New York zu erkunden.
Zusammenfassend haben wir unseren Aufenthalt bei Vincent sehr genossen. Wir würden jederzeit wieder bei Ihm wohnen wollen und können Ihn und sein Apartment zu 100% weiterempfehlen.
Vielen Dank Vincent für die super Zeit und Viele Grüße
Jessi und Chris
Vincent is a great host . He gave us guide before our trip to make sure we got everything settled. The apartment is cozy and clean just as what you can see in the picture( actually I think it is better than the picture because Vincent added new dest and shelf in that room) The apartment is 10mins walk to both metro stations which is a little frustrated in winter but I guess it is quite fine in warmer time. I recommend this place to you. hope you enjoy your stay in NYC.
We had a wonderful stay at Vincent's apartment. Before our arrival, he was very accessible and easy to contact. He left lots of information for us about the local area. The apartment was clean and very spacious for New York. It is warm and cozy and feels like home. It is an excellent location, too. Vincent also provided us free mobile hot spot. We had access to internet everywhere – it was very useful. We would highly recommend Vincent's place.
Togehter with my travel buddy we stayed at Vincent's apartment.
It was our first airbnb experience and we were very satisified!
The whole apartment (bathroom incl. big shower, kitchen and living room) is clean, comfy and really nice. The room itself is clean too, tidy, the bed is comfortable, there is a closet and it's big enough for two people.
The only minor disadvantage is that the apartment is badly soundproofed, so we heard neighbours talking, dogs barking, but that wasn't a big deal for us.
Vincent was a great host, he provided a lot of information which we received before we even started our journey (a detailed description how to get to the apartment, information about restaurants, supermarkets, public transport etc nearby). We even received a portable wireless internet (which can be very useful in case you get lost on the way)
Vincent is a very nice person and whenever we had any questions he was very helpful.
The location is good too (it took us about 20-30 min to get to times square, broadway etc), there are two subway stations nearby (about a 10 min. walk) and the we felt very safe in the area (even at nighttime).
Overall, it was a great experience and I would definetely recommend staying at Vincent's place.
It was my first airbnb experience and I have been very satisfied!
Vincent is super: he was welcoming and happy to help whenever I had questions about getting around in the city, etc. I think he is the perfect host: kind, respectful and helpful. Vincent also provided all the information to help get to his apartment from the airport.
The apartment was very clean, the room was exactly as seen on the pictures, spacious and comfortable.
The apartment is close to Columbia University and subway stations (10-minutes walk).
I highly recommend this host !
Awesome location! Near Columbia and express trains. Vincent's place was tidy, clean, and safe. Directions and communication was clear and concise. My wife was able to take advantage of the pile of chargers he left in the room in case you forgot yours! Highly recommend.
Vincent a été très sympathique et arrangeant.
Nous n'avons pas eu de surprise avec l'appartement , tout est comme sur les photos. Le métro est à 15 minutes à pied et le quartier est assez calme dans l'ensemble. Tout était propre à notre arrivée , pas de surprise !
A little about us- We are both young, late 20's, recent graduates of engineering graduate programs. We both keep fairly regular, but flexible work schedules, so most of the weekdays we will be out at work. Vincent has been living in NYC for many years, and both Vincent and Nancy grew up in the area and can help with suggestions of places to go and things to do. We are both easy going and want to help make your stay as comfortable as possible.
