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 et Nancy nous ont très bien reçus. Ils sont très sympa et disponibles si besoin pour de bons conseils. L'appartement est propre et bien équipé, proche du métro et des commerces. Si c'était à refaire nous reviendrions chez Vincent et Nancy.
Vincent é molto gentile e disponibile.
L´appartamento é molto pulito e accogliente. La posizione é buona perché é a pochi minuti dalla metropolitana e ti fa sentire anche un po´l´atmosfera di Harlem.
Se potessi tornare a New York starei sicuramente di nuovo lí
Prima volta che prenotavo con airbnb, rimasto soddisfatto.
Abbiamo incontrato Vinc la sera del nostro arrivo poi lui è stato fuori tutta la settimana quindi abbiamo avuto casa tutta per noi. Arrivati ci ha aiutato con le valigie per le scale, fornito di un mobile wifi (molto comodo) e spiegato come funzionava la metropolitana. La casa è distante 5 minuti a piedi dalla linea 1 (arrivi nelle principali attrazioni) e 7-8 min dalla linea A (per l'aeroporto).
Mai avuto problemi per il quartiere anche a tarda sera.
Stanza consigliata a giovani viaggiatori che non vogliono spendere molto.
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.
About the Host, Vincent And Nancy
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.
