Philip is a great host, very clear with the information he gives about the apartment, that is clean and well located in Manhattan.
Première expérience avec airbnb, je ne maîtrisais donc pas tous les "codes" et n'avais pas vérifié mes messages ce qui a donné lieu à quelques incompréhensions via SMS et je pense que Philip doit tenir compte avec un peu plus de souplesse des aléas que peuvent rencontrer ses hôtes. Le quartier est agréable et très bien situé pour atteindre différents points touristiques de la ville.
Appartement très bien situé, dans un quartier vivant, à deux pas de Katz's delicatessen. L'appartement est sympa, plutôt pour jeunes ou familles avec ados (pas de petits enfants parce que l'échelle pour monter à la mezzanine est périlleuse.
Deux problèmes : la chambre à coucher est surchauffée par deux tuyaux d'eau bouillante que l'on ne peut pas régler. Elle donne sur une minuscule cour intérieure et dispose d'une tout aussi minuscule fenêtre garnie d'une moustiquaire sale, donc pas d'air extérieur pour rafraîchir l'ambiance; à moins de mettre l'air conditionné très bruyant.
La cuisinière à gaz ne fonctionnait pas. Philip nous a promis d'apporter une plaque électrique que nous n'avons jamais vue. Donc impossible de se faire même un café ou de manger à la maison.
Everything was exactly like Phil said it would be, the check in process was simple and flawless. The apartment was exactly as described. Thank you Phil, my girls had a great trip to New York
Philips apartment was cozy but basic, located right in the middle of the lower east side. All necessary means of transportation (bus and subway) and groceries are close by.
Although we never met Philip personally, he was always responsive.
We had a wonderful stay at this apartment. We never met the owner, but kept in contact through email. He was able to accommodate our needs and was very helpful. Checking in and checking out was a breeze. The apartment fit the 6 of us comfortably. The couch pulls out into a futon and I especially loved the ladder that goes into the loft. The location is perfect and walking distance to everything we wanted to do. Close to subway stations if we wanted to go downtown/Brooklyn or uptown. Soho is a 15 min. walk away. All the good food and bars for hanging out are around the block. Surprisingly, we did not hear any loud noises in the streets during the night. We ate a lot of food so the 4 flights of stairs were a good workout every morning and every night. We had the best time at the karaoke bar right next door. I recommend checking out Russ & Daughter's for bagels and Katz Delicatessen for reuben sandwiches. Thanks for a great time, we would definitely book this place again!
Phillip had arranged for the keys to be picked up at a deli around the corner, which all worked well and we found the apartment easily. His instructions were clear and easy to follow. The apartment is on the fourth floor, with no elevator, so it's good for exercise! It was small and cosy, very warm and everything worked. It was a bit noisy, with doors in the foyer rattling on a windy night and street noise, but I guess that is expected in the city that never sleeps. All in all it was a good stay.

About the Host, Philip
My name is Phil and I've been living in New York City for 8 years. I love the New York because it has everything you could ever want: nightlife, great food, shopping, and quick access to some of the most amazing landmarks and sightseeing on earth.
I keep a very clean and well appointed home. I'm the kind of Host that will swing by at 9am to bring you a fresh pound of coffee if you need it. :)
When I'm not playing Host, I work as a freelance musician and sound engineer from a studio I own on Rivington Street.
I tend to keep busy but love to find time to slow down, read a book, or just listen to music. I love travelling, and look forward to visiting India someday...
If this is your first time, or millionth time, visiting NYC, you can't find a better place to stay. Feel free to send me a message and I'll respond right away.
Looking forward to hosting you on your travels.
