Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I really have no words enough to express my deep gratitude to Bidia for her genuine hospitality, kindness, support and understanding. Bidia is one of the greatest people I’ve ever met!
    And they say your home is a reflection of your personality…This is exactly about Bidia’s place: very beautiful, so tasteful and stylish, modern, immaculately clean and well kept. It’s very cozy with a great kitchen full of appliances and a private bathroom with all the toiletries!
    The location was great and very safe – close to so many cafes and supermarkets. The subway was less than a 3 minute walk making it very easy to get around the City.
    This was my first airbnb experience and it was flawless! I would return time and time again.

  • I spent a week at Bidia's apartment and I had a great stay. The place is AMAZING! you fell like at home: it's warm , confortable , very clean. and very well located ( less than a minute walk from the subway).
    Bidia was there when I arrived and she made me fell really welcomed.
    Unfortunaltely she had to leave the day after my arrival so I have the feeling I missed the chance to know better a really nice person!
    so if you are looking for place to me this is the PERFECT accomodation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    thank you Bidia!!!!!!!!!

    December 2013
  • I stayed at Bidia's place from 27/11 till 4 december 2013. I enjoyed my room very much. The room and bathroom were very clean.
    The whole house is very clean. When I will visit NYC again I would very much like to stay in Bidia's appartment again.
    Bidia is a very welcoming and a very friendly host. The metro 116th W is just on the corner. Thank you for the nice conversations Bidia.

  • Bidia was a lovely host. She was very welcoming and friendly and her apartment was beautiful and very clean! This my first time in NYC and my first time using AirBnB and she made it a wonderful experience. The location of the place is great, super close to the subways and very easy to get anywhere in Manhattan. There were restaurants and cafes nearby and it was an interesting and lively neighbourhood to be in with great music venues and museums etc.

    November 2013
  • Bidia is seriously amazing. I am very honored to have been able to stay with her AND meet someone like her. I'm proud to say she is my adoptive mother. I bought a 1 way ticket to NYC and booked her place only a couple days before so I can find an apartment. If it weren't for her recommendation, I would probably be homeless right now (but I'm not!) and even if I wouldn't have, Bidia assured me that I can still stay and not feel rushed. She is so kind and she reminds me of my mother! I seriously love her! Her place is beautiful! Just like in her pictures...clean, nice, convenient. This is the ideal place to stay when you're in town. I also had dinner at the many restaurants nearby and there's also a Starbucks! Very convenient and close to the subway...and currently, I'm only a couple train stops from her :-)...I'm happy with my first experience on airbnb because of Bidia and I will forever be in touch with this lady! <3

    November 2013
  • Bidia and her home are absolutely wonderful. The location is only a half a block to the subway, getting you into midtown in minutes! The neighborhood is safe and very close to some of the best local restaurants, neighborhood convenient stores, and grocery stores. Her home is so inviting and comfortable. I felt right at home and it was cleaner than most hotels! I cannot speak more highly about my stay. If ever I need a place to stay in the city, I will not hesitate to contact Bidia!

    November 2013
  • This is my first time using Air BnB though it is my fifth time in NYC. It worked out perfectly! The room was great. Bidia has a really lovely apartment which she keeps spotless. It is right by the metro stop too!

    I changed my dates so it worked out that Bidia was away while I was there, but she was always contactable and extremely helpful, even helping me with suggestions to watch the Knicks game I wanted to see!

    Thank you Bidia!

    November 2013
  • A beautiful apartment in the perfect location for my work at Columbia University. The bedroom is clean and comfortable and you have your own private bathroom. Bidia is the perfect host, friendly and charming, but is able to give you space if needed. I loved catching up on travel stories with her and I can't wait to stay there for my next visit! Highly recommended :)

    October 2013
  • I spent a week at Bidia's place. Her flat is gorgeous and well placed in Harlem. The room is very nice and neat.
    Bidia has been very friendly and helpful in making my stay in NYC a very good one.

    October 2013
  • Bidia's apartment was amazing, a good location with easy access to subway. Everything was very clean and tidy. But what made my stay perfect was Bidia herself. She's such a friendly and honest person and a real joy to talk with. I would definitely recommend her place and hope to see her again.
