Other Things to Note
Easy to find.
We don't have many rules! On your arrival, we will give you a set of keys to the apartment. You are free to come and go as you please; there is no curfew.
We will not enter your room while you are staying with us unless you ask us to. We will handle all of the cleaning when you leave. There is no need to strip the bed or do any cleaning before you leave. For longer stays (one week or more), we can replace your towels for you midway through your stay if you like.
If you are flying, it is helpful if you give us your airline and flight number before you leave. That way, if your flight is delayed, but you can't call because you are in the air, we can check your flight status online and plan accordingly.
Our only real "house rules" are that we don't allow smoking, illegal drug use, or pets. We look forward to hosting you!
Nous avons été extrêmement bien accueillis par notre hôte. Joe est prévenant, agréable et discret. C'est un Hôte quo conseille avec bienveillance. Nous avons apprécié cela. Merci encore Joe et peut être à une prochaine fois, le plaisir de visiter New York.
Joe has been very welcoming, giving me useful informations about where to hang out in NY, and how to reach the airport. The room was clean and confortable (good space), and the bed very confortable. The area was safe enough as far as I'm concerned. There are 2 metro stations at 10 minutes distance by walking, lines 3 and ABCD.
Particularly nice connection to La Guardia airport : you need to take the metro for 1 station (to the 125th), and there will be a bus going to La Guardia.
Joe nous avait très bien expliqué comment venir, la photo de la chambre correspondait bien. La salle de bain était assez grande et plutôt propre. Il a été très gentil, nous sommes arrivées à 8h30 le matin, la chambre était prête et nous vons aussi pu nous doucher tout de suite.
Nous n'avons pas beaucoup visiter le quartier mais nous nous sommes toujours senties en sécurité. L'appartement est à 20min de la gare routière.
Tout au long de notre séjour Joe nous a demandé si ça allait ou ce qu'il pouvait faire pour améliorer notre séjour, parfois nous étions presque gênées de n'avoir rien à lui demander tellement il insistait. Il nous a proposé de faire partie du public d'un TV show, ce qui aurait pu être intéressant mais n'étant à NYC que 3 jours nous n'avions pas le temps, malgré cet argument il nous avait quand même inscrites (dans le doute) mais nous n'y sommes pas allées.
Je mettrais un léger bémol quant au ménage, il y avait de la poussière sur les étagères de la chambre et la douche et l'évier de la salle de bain méritaient un bon coup d'éponge également. Parfois il y avait la queue dans la salle de bain étant donné qu'on était jusqu'à 5 dans l'appartement.
En résumé, le rapport qualité/prix est excellent, Joe est toujours prêt à donner des conseils, répondre à nos questions et est toujours très serviable.
Staying at Joe's place was easy. His place was easy to find and close to several trains. It was typical new York loud outside but Joe is very helpful in mitigating the noise (as mentioned in other reviews). My one quibble with the experience is that he was almost overly solicitous. I know how to get around New York pretty well and he kept pushing to help me when I didn't need it.
El trato del anfitrión fue bastante bueno. Nos ayudó en cualquier cuestión que tuvimos y se mostró muy atento. Las distancias desde el alojamiento no eran tan largas tomando las lineas de metro express. Asi, que en general la experiencia fue positiva.
Joe was really nice, when we got there, he ran straight down to help us with our suitcases, and then he took the time to show us on a map the places we want to go and how to get there. He even got us tickets to a tv show. Several times during our stay, he would check with us if we needed any directions or anything else. And on the last day, he told us we can stay as long as we want and we can even leave our suitcases at his place until it was time to head to the airport.
I am going to be honest so that other people don't get surprised like we did. When we first got there the neighborhood seemed a little too shady, especially that you are in Harlem (which previously people had told me to avoid), but we stayed there for 4 days and everything was ok. The street is a major street. Almost all subways stop there and are only 5 min away from Joe's apartment. Now the apartment is on the 5th floor, but not to hard to walk up. I have asthma and I survived. Definitely noisy, but again that is NY but Joe did have a sleep radio and earplugs ready.
As I mentioned previously, Joe was a great host but my biggest problem is that the room and bathroom and even kitchen were dirty. It seemed like the floor had not been swept in weeks, the counters not dusted in forever. There literally was bundles of dust on the floor. So if you allergic to dust, you need to be careful. My friend had bad allergies throughout the whole stay, every time we walked into the apartment, he couldn't stop sneezing. The bed wasn’t so bad, but again we were so exhausted every night from walking the city, we knocked out very fast, but it does make a lot of noise, it is a spring bed with a plastic cover, so any kind movement would make it loud.
I would like to make sure people understand that Joe is great and the stay was overall good.
Joe was a great host! He really has thought of everything (maps and guides in the room, towels, blankets, internet access, everything). He also made sure everything was OK.
The apartment and the room were clean and comfortable and well located near 145st subway.
I would stay here again if I get the chance to come back to NYC.
He was particularly helpful when I had a minor crisis to sort out on arrival. Thank you very much Joe!
