Great neighborhood. Small, clean room. Suzanne was very welcoming and helpful.
The location is perfect, close to several subways and near plenty of good restaurants and a nice deli. The apartment (and room) is small and somewhat run-down, but the bed was decent and I slept like a baby (which is the important part). Suzanne is also a great host, very friendly and helpful. This was my first experience with Airbnb, and I'll definitely keep using the service after such a great start.
Suzanne was a great host. She did a great job at directing us around the city, and helped immensely with our subway system confusion. We were not in the apartment much during our stay, however, she made it easy and seamless to come and go as we needed. The room and space was as described and pictured. We had more than enough space, and her place is in a great location. Thank you for assisting in a great first NYC experience!
Suzanne is very kind and helpful!The bed is comfortable. The apartment is very close to the subway in a beautiful neighborhood and it is perfect for visiting the city!
Suzanne's place is definitely small, but cute, and in a beautiful neighborhood. Plus Suzanne is a great host!
Very close to the metro line. Comfortable bed. Suzanne is a very thoughtful and helpful host. I really like her personality. I would love to stay in her place again if I visit NYC in the future.
About the Host, Suzanne
Hi, I am a quiet and friendly individual interested in sharing my space in this great neighborhood. My place is clean and cozy. I have musical instruments but can coordinate practice so as not to interfere with quiet time.
I am out most of the day and some evenings at work. I speak English and Spanish.
