Travel Well, Travel Often!
Keston maintained contact with me prior to my arrival. He was helpful in giving me transportation info and allowed me to wake him up early to check in due to my red-eye flight. It was extra but worth it. The room and bathroom with nice and clean and the neighborhood was nice, quiet and safe. Thank you for all of the help and unfo!
This is THE ideal location if you want an affordable NYC experience. Very quiet neighborhood, with a lot of amenities nearby. Keston is an awesome host he felt like an extension of family. The room is spacious and the bed is super comfortable. It was ideal for me since I work remotely the desk and the quiet atmosphere was just the best for me. I highly recommend this stay to anyone and he will be seeing me again very soon!
Although Keston was away, he phoned and kept in touch via email. His assistant Victoria was wonderful and made us feel very welcome. This is a great place to stay in Harlem.........Go!
My friend and myself spent four days in NYC and chose to stay at Keston's apartment. We are glad we did because it more than met our expectations. The apartment is exactly as pictured: the guest bedroom is light, clean and spacious, and the bed is very comfortable. Also, the place is in a very quiet area a mere five minutes from two subway stops.
Unfortunately, Keston was away during our stay so we didn't have the chance to meet. Even so, he was very helpful and would write everyday to check how we were doing and ask if we needed anything. We will definitely choose Keston's place if we have the chance to come to NYC again. Hopefully, we'll be able to meet him then and finish our stay with one of his appreciated photo shoots!
Our host did a good job of making us feel welcome. He met us out the front of the apartment and kindly carried our luggage up the stairs. He showed us around and explained a lot about the services, restaurants and shops in the local area. Our host was also very helpful in explaining the subway to us. When it was time to leave he went with us to assist with our luggage and hailed a cab for us. He also took the trouble to find out about purchasing the tickets for the M60 bus to the airport.
We liked the local area and always felt safe, even very late at night. The local area was well serviced by two subway lines, good shops and places to eat. It seemed to be a diverse and vibrant community. There were many architecturally beautiful buildings in the area.
We found our host Keston easy to communicate with and he was always a willing to answer questions and share information and knowledge with us.
The apartment was very clean and tidy. The bed was very comfortable and the wifi was fast and efficient.
We enjoyed getting to know Keston our host and were grateful for the way he enriched our travel experiences.
