Robinson was very polite and nice in the beginning. We had some trouble with the toilet within the first night and after several hours later it was fixed. Other than that the place looked as much as advertised as possible. However, we had a few concerns:
1) The sheets were not clean and smelled funny and there was only one towel in the closet, no wash cloths or anything else. Good thing I bought extra.
2) The apt was FREEZING because the air conditioner was not covered or properly installed. There were drafty winds coming in the apt non stop and in the dead of winter! We had to put a makeshift barrier over the unit with a blanket, however that didn't work for long either. And the heat is centrally controlled so we could not turn it up or on for that matter, neither could we turn on the oven to help warm up because it was out of order.
Overall, if you are planning to stay here longer than a week I suggest you get used to eating out because the stove/oven does not work and there's not much cookware. Also, the neighborhood for the most part is quiet and seems safe, the building security is friendly but that "smell" that other renters have referred to in the building not to alarm you is...putting it mildly, weed and crack. I've lived in buildings and projects before so I know the smell all too well. But if it doesn't bother you, once you get in the apt you're fine!
I would probably rent with Robinson again, however maybe only in the warmer months :)
Llegamos a New York el 17 de Enero con mucho frio y, tal como nos habia anticipado, Robinson nos espero en la entrada del edificio. El departamento es muy lindo, amplio, luminoso, decorado con buen gusto y con todo lo necesario para una estadia confortable, esta calefaccionado y tiene servicio de lavanderia dentro del mismo edificio. La ubicacion es muy conveniente ya que se encuentra en la zona comercial de un barrio muy Latino, hay muchos comercios y supermercados, para almorzar o cenar sano destacamos PICK & EAT (nos lo recomendo Robinson), muy Buena mercaderia fresca y natural. El edificio cuenta con portero dia y noche, la gente que conocimos alli es muy amable y amistosa dentro y fuera del edificio. Robinson fue un exelente anfitrion en todo momento y estamos muy agradecidos de que en cuanto tuvimos una necesidad al momento nos respondio resolviendo el tema. Si volvemos a New York de seguro volveremos a alojarnos en el departamento de Robinson. Estamos muy conformes de nuestra estadia alli.
Robinson war sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Er war stets bemüht uns einen schönen Aufenthalt zu ermöglichen und er war immer für uns erreichbar.
Am Anfang gab es einige Probleme. Am ersten Abend hatten wir Probleme mit der Wohnungstür, aber er kam mit Handwerkern vorbei und diese konnten es direkt reparieren. Wir hatten auch Probleme mit dem Herd, auch das hat sich im Laufe der ersten Woche klären können.
Die Sauberkeit des Appartements war ok. Auf dem ersten Blick war es sehr ordentlich und genau so wie auf dem Bildern. Das Bad war sauber, das Geschirr war teilweise nicht ganz sauber und leider hatten die Handtücher ein paar Flecken, aber diese haben wir einfach einmal durchgewaschen und dann war es auch ok.
Die Gegend wirkt etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig. Aber Robinson hat uns versichert, dass die Gegend sicher ist und die meisten Leute waren tatsächlich sehr nett und hilfsbereit.
Nach ein paar Tagen der Eingewöhnung haben wir uns wirklich wohl gefühlt. Die U-Bahn ist sehr nah und man ist relativ schnell in Midtown.
Alles in Allem hatten wir eine schöne Zeit in New York und in Robinsons Appartement.
Wir haben uns für das Appartement entschieden da es nicht so teuer war und wir so wie so nur zum schlafen da sein wollten und dafür kann man es auch weiterempfehlen.
Robinson was a great host. When we arrived at the apartment building, he met up with us a few minutes later to give us the key. He gave us some suggestions on a place to eat and made us feel welcome. He also let us check out late so that was great since our plane didn't depart until 6:30. Apartment looks exactly like pictures so you get what you see.
I loved staying at robinson's apartment . Due to change in flights at the last minute .. I arrived to the airport very late and hence reached robinson's place at the wee hours .. Even then Robinson was very understanding .. I definitely recommend robinson's place and would definitely stay here the next time we plan . The place looked exactly the same as in the advertisement and our stay was totally comfortable . The train station for 175 st was about 10 mins walk and the connectivity to the whole of the Manhattan is pretty good . It took us half hour to get to Manhattan and I loved the metro experience . We have good grocery store and deli networks here and there around the place .. One can always have a quick grab of food whenever they feel like .Loved the place
The apartment is clean and beautiful. The neighborhood is very good and there are several bars and restaurants you can eat at. There is a grocery story only one block away and the metro ( A and Nr 1) is also near. The only fact that I might complain about is that it is somehow loud in the night for people who are not used to traffic. Robinson is very friendly and helpful. The communication was very easy. All in all I can definitely recommend the apartment and Robinson.
The experience was wonderful, he was waiting for us and explained every detail.
