This is a wonderful place and very cosy! I stayed here on a lovely weekend and woke up to sunshine and birdsong. The interior design is very cool, comprising of a multitude of small, well-balanced details. It's very close to the subway station, from which it doesn't take long to get to Manhattan.
Saya has also been very helpful in answering my questions and she replied quickly. I got to meet the cleaning lady, Mika, who was extremely nice and even suggested a cafe. The loveliest touch was in fact the high quality hand soap and the range of everything one might need -- hangers, blankets, towels, cups, mirrors...
I really enjoyed my stay here and will definitely come again when I go back to New York.
Saya's apartment is spacious and conveniently located with plenty of restaurants and store fronts in the neighborhood for your convenience as well as being 10-15 mins from Manhattan by subway. Both rooms can accommodate up to two people well. The apartment is well maintained and cleaned and Saya really goes out of her way to make you feel welcome right up to the moment you leave. She's been a fantastic host and I'm grateful she was my first AirBnB experience!
It's convenient to visit any place in NYC from Saya's place
And Saya is really outgoing person, so I was happy to talk with her
"BUG INFESTED, DENIED REFUND REQUEST, HOST STILL RENTS WITH KNOWN ROACH ISSUE!! BEWARE!!!"
I truly regret with every fiber of my being for renting this place. It's quite unfortunate, because Saya herself is a nice woman. I thanked her for welcoming me.
Upon entering Saya's home she explained to me it is rare for her to be home, as she is always at her boyfriend's place, and now I know why.
My first issue when arriving was the EXTREME cold. Her air conditioners are still in the main room, so the open window is constantly blowing cold air. When entering the grey striped room, the radiator was not on, and this was during the polar vortex low temperatures, so it was less than 10 degrees outside AND inside the apartment. I had to buy a window insulation kit (plastic film to cover the window, comes right off), to keep the cold draft from blowing in through the bedroom window.
After my first day at Saya's I discovered SEVERAL bugs, crawling around her kitchen counters and sink. I had not cooked so there were no dirty dishes.
These bugs I believe were ROACHES from their shape, tentacles, brown color, and they scattered when I turned on the light. There was no time to grab a camera to take pictures of this disgustingness. *If you see bugs AirBnB will ask you for a picture, which is the most idiotic thing I ever heard of, and why I will no longer use their service because they allow people to rent out roach infested apartments.
I packed the few things outside of my suitcase (after shaking them out and checking them) and left within the hour to check into a hotel.
To make matters worse, Saya refused to refund me by using the AirBnB Resolution Tool, for the 6 nights I did not stay. It has been a headache and a nightmare dealing with her and AirBnB.
It is unprofessional, disgusting, and just down right WRONG to rent your apartment with a KNOWN bug problem.
When I first discovered the roaches I texted Saya to tell her, and she asked me to put out "roach medicine" from under the sink, and she will buy more! I AM NOT AN EXTERMINATOR! I will not take photo's or put out roach repellent!
When writing her on AirBnB, she says "oh, they are waterbugs, not roaches". SAME THING, SAME ROACH FAMILY!
This is not what we do in America. Saya and her apartment are not fit for hospitality.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND!
She called me really late night. I tried hard to contact her even though I was at the business trip.But she left right after I replied to her in few minutes. I called the maintenance and Exterminator next day and they sprayed whole place. I never see bugs. My past 40-50 guests who stayed there never see any problems. However, I took her comment seriously and solve the problem with professionals. Heater is able to turn high or low in the room. Sometimes it's too hot. 2 extra blankets are ready for the guests just in case. Also Air BNB customer service took care about her refund and problems. Not me. There is too many unreasonable people in the world.and we are strangers. That is why we(Hosts and guests) pay for Air BNB's expensive fees to protect each other. Air BNB let us sign the agreement first to let people book. We must follow the rules under the agreement to make everything fare for both of us. I have many business tripes so Im renting when Im not here.I love this apartment and I live here.I had too many nice guests before and Im glad I have 40 nice positive reviews from them.
The apartment is conveniently located near LaGuardia and there's a metro station just a few blocks down, which makes it easy to get to Manhattan. While I didn't get to see Saya much during my stay, she is very easygoing and we liaised without much hiccups over text messages. My friend, Sarah and I really enjoyed our stay.
Thanks again for having us!
Extra tip: Make sure you go to Sanford's for brunch if you are staying over the weekend.
Saya was really wonderful! She was flexible with my check-in and out times, which is good during the winter travel months, and was also very sweet and caring. I had a bit of an emergency and she was very supportive and compassionate. Her place is also really close to the subway and many restaurants and grocery stores. It's very convenient and safe. I HIGHLY recommend you stay with her :) Thanks, Saya!!!
very good location, but the room to let is small for two persons. The public space (like dining room) is converted into the second room so it's small as well. Consider you might have to share the only bathroom with maximun another 5 guests, sometimes the landlord herself.
Meiya was not the one who stayed there. her friends stayed. they were very happy with everything when I asked. I clearly showed everything on the pictures and description here on air BNB. also Dinning room is big compare to other apartments. This is New York City size(10 minuites to midtown) compare to suburbs, it could be small compare to live in the forest.We have 2 bedrooms and 1 (email hidden)d I will tell my guests who is there in the other room. There is no 5 people when they are there. anyways her friends were very nice people! thanks Meiya-
I stayed two weeks at Saya's appartement and i had a great time ! the appartement was clean, cossy and is in a nice neighborhood and very close to the subway.
My roommates were great to. During my stay I didnt see Saya but she was there for me if i had any questions.
when I book my next trip to New York , I definitely stay in Saya her apartment again. Thanks Saya for your hospitality!!!!
