Page was very accommodating with our late check-out request, our lack of umbrellas and phone adapters, etc. Most of our problems were sorted out super-fast.
The location of the apartment is excellent.
El trato de Page es estupendo, siempre esta pendiente de que la estadía sea lo mejor posible. Nos recibió de manera muy cálida y nos explico y mostró todo en el departamento. El lugar tiene todo lo necesario para pasar unos días bastante cómodos y si hace falta algo ️puedes pedirlo a Page con toda confianza. La ubicación es estupenda, inmejorable diría yo, puedes ir caminando a muchos de los sitios de interés cono museos, tiendas, teatros y el mismo time square y tienes 2 o 3 líneas del metro bastante cerca. Recomiendo ampliamente el lugar para todo tiempo de viajero. Si pudiera describir el departamento con una palabra seria: ubicacion!
Page ist die perfekte Gastgeberin: sie hat uns die nötige Privatsphäre gegeben und war trotzdem immer für uns da, wenn wir Fragen hatten oder Hilfe benötigten. Im Vorfeld hat die Kommunikation ebenfalls sehr gut funktioniert. Das Apartment war so wie beschrieben, sauber und zu dritt hatten wir genug Platz. Die Lage ist einfach super. Viele Sehenswürdigkeiten sind zu Fuß zu erreichen und der Central Park ist direkt um die Ecke! Mehrere Subway-Stationen sind auch in der Nähe. Einfach klasse, um von dort aus New York zu erkunden. Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt und würden diese Unterkunft definitiv noch mal buchen. Sehr empfehlenswert!
We couldn't have asked for a better New York experience!
Page is a gracious and very hospitable host, incredibly helpful and thoughtful, particularly as we were traveling with our infant son. She was easy to be in contact with should we require help or advice, but certainly left us to our own devices.
The apartment was very clean and as described in the listing, the TV was HUGE, bed was comfy, Internet reliable and we felt safe in the apartment and neighbourhood. The location was second to none, we walked everyday in Central Park, could catch the subway from multiple nearby locations giving us great access to the rest of the city, and nearby restaurants were delicious.
Would definitely recommend Page and her apartment to anyone looking for a great location, and a relaxed and friendly New York airbnb!
Just spent 2 weeks at Page's place for Xmas and New Year. The suite is lovely and a terrific location near The Plaza Hotel and Central Park. Page was the perfect host and looked after us really well including a champagne on New Year's Eve before going to the rooftop of the building to watch the fireworks in Central Park. Our Xmas and New Year in New York was an amazing experience we will always remember.
Page's apartment was perfect for my daughter and myself. We were there for six days the week of Thanksgiving 2014. Page is very easy to work with....very accommodating. Communication before, during and after was great. I would say the location of the apartment is the best feature. We could walk to almost anything, and if we couldn't there was a subway stop around the corner. Tons nearby....restaurants, grocery store, etc... We definitely recommend Page's apartment!
Page has a great location, just a block from Central Park, and walking distance to many places in midtown. The apartment is safe, with a nice simple set-up. It's not equipped with a kitchenette, so don't plan to make meals there, but there is a fridge, coffee maker, plates and basic cutlery so you can bring back take-out meals. Above all, Page is very warm, friendly and helpful. Good value for money - I'd stay there again if I go back to NYC.
