Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Stark Wilz is a very kind and helpful person. He took great care of me: preparing breakfast for me, gladly offering me tips for sightseeing routes through the city and he was very patient with me in everything I did and asked. He even went so far as to cheer me up when I was feeling down. Overall, he behaved like a real friend and he made me feel completely welcome and most importantly at ease at home in his very cosy apartment. I will be recommending him warmly to all my friends.

  • We spent 4 nights at Stark's place. He was very helpful and kind. He even got up at 3 AM and helped us with our luggage and to find a taxi! He helped us find out important information and gave us ideas about what to do. The flat is well situated, only a couple meters from the high line and well communicated. Hot and strong shower and good heating. Nicely decorated, warm colours. Small, but enough for our needs (2 persons). I would recommend it for young people (or young at heart) who want to live central. Thanks for your hospitality, Stark!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Stark! His apartment is very conveniently located in the Chelsea area, within easy access to the subway and many local attractions. The apartment is charmingly decorated and has plenty of character, and Stark is an extremely attentive and interesting host! His choice of breakfast bagels was also great, and he made sure we left the apartment each day well fed! He also includes plenty of nice touches including a well maintained fruit bowl, chocolate bars and chips! The room is clean and cosy too! We would definitely recommend Stark, and we would have no hesitation staying with him again!

  • I concur with the positive reviews here. Stark is an ideal airbnb host. His place is situated in the middle of restaurants, transportation, and hip people. Even my taxi driver from the airport was pleased to be heading to that part of town. Stark is a lovely person. I greatly appreciated his loaning me an umbrella when I'd forgotten to pack one. The bed is super comfortable (loft bed). Small, but clean and well-organized space.

  • I spent a fantastic week in NYC! Stark was a generous, friendly and helpful host and the flat is located perfectly in Manhatten! I walked everywhere and never had to take the subway!
    Thanks to Stark again! I will never forget the time i spent in NYC!

  • This was my first experience with airbnb, and it could not have been better. Stark was the most perfect host imaginable. His apartment is charming and he was tremendously gracious and helpful. I immediately tried to make plans to stay at at his place again on my next scheduled visit to New York -- only to find that I couldn't because he is so popular (deservedly so!) that he gets booked jn way in advance! I will definitely keep trying for some more distant date in the future.

  • Stark's place in Chelsea was everything as advertised and then some: this is probably one of the best locations in Manhattan that I have stayed. Steps from the 23rd street entrance to the Highline, and close to the subway, Chelsea is a lovely residential area and it's easy to get just about anywhere from there. Our room was clean and comfortable and the extra touch of the bowl of fruit in the room and some delicious chocolate was such a nice touch. The bed is, as noted, in a loft so it was fun to climb up and sleep in and was also incredibly comfortable. Stark made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed his beautiful place very much.

  • Stark is a great host. He was nice to let me stay at his place after my instabook cancelled on me. Very flexible with my arrival. Great communication the whole time. Upon arrival he made sure I felt comfortable right away. I definitely would recommend staying with Stark if you are visiting NYC.
