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!
Joe was a great host and was super proactive in making my sister and I feel welcome. We arrived quite late after a wedding and he stayed up and waited for us to get to his place. He had a subway system map ready for us and circled routes and places that we were interested in. When we left, he personally walked us out to the metro station. The bathroom was smaller than what we had expected but it had hot water and was functional. Joe also provided us with ear plugs as it can get loud at night (noise from the street).
We were only in the apartment in the evening to sleep and left early in the morning to head to the city. There wasn't much we were interested in doing in Harlem but his apartment was one block away from the 3 train which was helpful in getting to the city. I would not suggest that girls stay at this apartment alone as the neighborhood can be dangerous in the evening, however during the day it was fine.
Joe is an amazing host. He helped with our luggage and had everything set up so that we could settle in immediately. Water, power cords for laptops and phones, WIFI, maps, etc. He has it all worked out. If you need advice on things to do or where to go, he is an incredible resource. He offered us tickets to some shows but our schedule was already booked. The neighborhood is ok, near enough to public transit but no places to go within walking distance. The rooms were fine, not hotel quality, but you aren't paying hotel prices. Perfect for the person that just wants a place to sleep and keep their stuff and doesn't need tons of amenities. Again, Joe is a great guy and you will enjoy your stay with him.
Joe was extremely friendly and helpful and made check-in very flexible! The room (and apartment) was great considering I only needed a place to sleep for one night. Joe provided useful tips about exploring New York City and tried to get tickets for TV shows as well, which unfortunately wasn't possible during my short stay. All in all, a convenient and nice place if you just need a place to sleep.
Great experience! We only stayed for one night but Joe was wonderful and always trying to help and guide us! 100% recommended!
Very welcome, Joe provides all the facilities for a pleasant stay. The room is well located and true to the description. Joe is available and gives you all the information to the visit of the city.
I had a great over night visit in NYC and Joe's accommodation played an important part. His room is located near a blue line express stop which allows one to get downtown very quickly. The room and the kitchen are exactly as pictured. The shower has great pressure. The flat was very clean.
Joe was a gracious host. He confirmed my reservation within 20 minutes of my booking. He reached out again two days before my departure and offered travel advice for getting from JFK to his location in Harlem. I landed on a Frdiay at 3:30.
I had a few questions along the way. Joe quickly responded to my texts to confirm that I was indeed on the correct route.
Joe met me at his front door stoop at 5pm and insisted on carrying my pack up the 5 flights of stairs. He asked if I had any questions, handed me a subway map and a key, and I went on my way down town to catch a musical at 8pm. I left for Long Island early the next morning. He followed up with me later the same day to make sure that I made it to my next destination. Joe's room is a good deal but he is also an unexpected concierge.
