Amalia is the best! We arrived late and she and her boyfriend waited us until midnight.She was so kind to talk with us and tell us how to go to the favorite places in NY.I just want to say again to Amalia,thank you so much and welcome to Shanghai.

Amalia was a great host, she made us feel at home from the moment we entered her house! Very sociable and loves to give recommendations for good food and things to do close by.
Nice and clean room.
Amalia is a great hostess. She is a very friendly and happy person. She gave us very good information about restaurants, transport and nice places in the city. We felt welcome and at home.
The room is comfortable and clean. The location of the apartment is also very good. It’s only about 20 minutes from Manhatten.
We wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again!
Amalia was the best hostess during our trip. She is a very happy, caring person and making us feel like at home . She and his boyfriend Tom, were willing to help us optimize our time with advice about places and transport and to provide any information we needed. They are very cheerful, friendly people and got all their trust without knowing us.
Her home is a comfortable place, you feel the warmth of home and rest everything you need. The neighborhood is a completely safe place, you find a supermarket just across the street and a laundry in the next door. Just below his apartment a beautiful coffee and several restaurants around it. She suggest us a delicious pizza right diagonal to her apartment. It's delicious!
The description of the place we rest is as seen in the ad. The room was very comfortable, you had everything we needed: space to store our luggage, large drawers for our clothes, good heating and a clean bathroom with everything you need. When we needed to cook sometimes, we always had fully available your kitchen and fridge which was a great help to us.
Without any doubt, maybe on a future trip, back to visit and stay a few days, and also recommend to our friends the amazing person Amalia is.
