Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • It was a lovely apartment, very warm, clean and cosy. The building is very old but it is a safe neighbourhood and so conveniently located with a Rite Aid that's open 24/7 and a supermarket across the road t that's open till midnight. And Charlie's caretaker, Edwin was fantastic, even helped us with our bags. Every little comfort was provided. Thank you so much for an awesome stay, Charlie!!

  • We enjoyed our stay at the Harlem Apartment. It was cozy and comfortable. A quite place to rest after long days of sight seeing in the city.

  • Our stay was spoilt somewhat by a number of things. On arrival we were disappointed that the front of the property is not the one that is advertised on the airbnb site and is in fact the property next door. There was a lot of litter in the front yard which gave a bad first impression. Based on the other photos, we also wrongly assumed that we had a road front apartment but in fact we had a rear facing one. It faced onto the back yard which was full of junk/rubbish. We were met by Edwin who was very helpful, however he informed us that the stove was not working and neither was the TV. We then spent the next 4 days having to communicate and negotiate with Charlie and Edwin, about access to the apartment for tradespeople. This was very annoying. We eventually had TV on night 4 and a working stove on night 5 of our 6 night stay.
    Charlie did lend us some DVDs and reimburse us $100, which we did appreciate.

    The apartment itself has a nice charm and was well furnished for our needs. It's in a great location for subway access and close to supermarkets etc. The central heating was great to have at this time of the year and the bed was very comfy. Beware the walls are paper thin and we woken up 3 out of 6 nights by neighbours. One of these nights we were kept awake for several hours as the neighbour downstairs was "entertaining" a particularly loud female guest.

    Response from Charlie:

    You can't make everyone happy even though we try. There are over 250 reviews that range from "very happy" to "amazing !!!!" I don't think you will find even one bad review, up till now. Look at the past reviews below for this apartment alone and you will be impressed. The cable tv is working perfectly -when I heard it wasn't I made an immediate call and push for an immediate weekend appointment for repair. I offered the guest $100 for any frustration with not being able to watch television for a few days. The stove burners were always working and the guest had the ability to cook at all times - upon hearing the oven wasn't working (for baking) I found a replacement and installed it myself within a few days. The pictures are an exact match of the apartment. The guest wasn't happy and that's unfortunate, but it seems to happen once every 250 people. It's a beautiful building and you will love staying here and feel very well taken care of on all levels. I stay with my young children all the time. It's not a hotel. It's better;-) I'm incredibly proud of it and the past few hundred people have been very happy. You will be too!! Guaranteed. Ask any questions you like - it will only make you and your family more excited to stay here -Safe travels -Charlie

  • This is the third of Charlie's units on 119th that I have stayed in and have never been disappointed. This Unit was clean and quiet and Edwin, the on-site manager, is always available and happy to answer any questions or address any issues. I recommend Charlie's apartments to everyone who tells me s/he is going to NYC

  • Best experience yet on airbnb in NYC. Charlie and his caretaker, Edwin, should be held up as models for how airbnb accommodations should be run. Apartment was beautiful, welcome and departure were incredibly warm and helpful, place was pristine, well-equipped and tasteful, responses were prompt. These guys truly understand what it takes to succeed in the hospitality business (ie, you have to be hospitable, something many people forget!). great job, highly recommended!

  • Notre séjour dans cet appartement à été extrêmement positif! L'appartement est magnifique, exactement comme sur les photos. Il est également très propre et bien équipé. Il est aussi très bien situé, à quelques minutes à pieds du métro, dans un quartier calme et agréable. La télévision ne fonctionnait pas quand nous y sommes allés mais Charlie a eu la courtoisie de nous prévenir de ce souci avant notre arrivée. Le problème devait être arrangé dans les jours à venir. Enfin Edwin la personne qui s'occupe de la remise des clés et qui est notre contact direct sur place est absolument adorable. En effet la compagnie aérienne avait perdu ma valise et avait donc besoin d'un numéro local pour me la livrer, Edwin a accepté que je donne le sien et nous a été d'une grande aide.
    Nous y avons séjourné en février et le chauffage était très appréciable. En bref nous avons adoré notre séjour à New York et dans cet appartement. Nous y retournerons à coup sûr lors de notre prochain séjour. Vivement recommandé!

  • We came into town for visits to Columbia University and Barnard College. The close proximity of the apartment to the campus was perfect! Very easy drive. Be aware that parking is a little bit tough, but this is to be expected anywhere in New York. The apartment is beautiful, clean, and very comfortable. Edwin was a great help with our bags and was also nice enough to set up the air mattress for us as well. Very nice man. Highly recommended!
