Un lugar muy agradable, limpio y con una gran vista, tiene una cama doble y un colchón doble, y un par de sofás. La cocina equipada con todo lo necesario, el baño tiene tina, secador. Los porteros del edificio son muy amables y Florence es una linda persona. Una muy buena opción para pasar varios días en NY. Ojo tengan cuidado donde dejan el carro hay pocas zonas de parqueo les pueden colocar un comparendo y los parqueaderos son muy costosos en toda NY.
We had a fantastic time in New York and Florence's apartment was a real benefit in achieving that. Her apartment ticked our three biggest boxes very well: 1. excellent, quiet and safe location - although buses and subway are handy you can also walk to many local attractions, we walked to Madison Square Gardens for a concert and felt very safe walking home late at night. It is also remarkable quiet, very little noise from the street or neighouring apartments. 2. comfortable queen sized bed. 3. Wifi. Added benefits were the spaciousness of the apartment, having a doorman and the laundry in the building and a grocery/market and wine shop across the road and lots of different ethnicity/styles of restaurants handy. And the view - simply spectacular. We turned the couch around and sat by the window enjoying a glass of wine at night. All in all I think this apartment is very good value for a stay in the greatest city in the world.
great apartment ! awesome view every morning and night !! very good location with subways around
it was really a great place to stay :) and florence was very nice with us
We had a very constrasted stay.
The building is very well located, doormen are nice and helpfull, and the view from the appartment is just like the pictures, awsome (after we cleaned the Windows).
On the other side, the appartment is not clean, we found dust in all rooms, and the bathroom definitively need to be refresh to remove mouldy seals... The bed needs also to be replaced, mattress springs are noisy and you can fell most of them!
But the most disturbing during our stay was the relationship with the owner. It took always several e-mails, texts, or phone calls to get an answer when we asked something. After the approval, it took 5 days, 2 texts, 1 e-mail, 1 call and 1 message through Airbnb to have them answering on how do we proceed for the check-in. Fortunately, the answer came few hours before the take-off.
After a couple days in the appartment, we noticed in a list taped in the elevator that Florence and Simon signed up for an exterminator visit for their appartment at 8:00 AM a few days later. First, we thought that it was a mistake since they never mentionned it. However, to make sure that somebody was not coming while we were asleep, we sent them an e-mail. Once again, it took 2 days and 2 e-mails to get an answer. Yes they signed-up for the visit because such visits are compulsory on a yearly basis, and no, they did not bother to let us know anything. After a few e-mails, we had the visit postponed of 2 hours.
We did not hear anything after the visit. But 2 days after, at 9:00 AM, 3 persons knocked at our door. They came to spray the bathroom and the kitchen, and asked for signature!!!!!!!!!
As a conclusion, the appartment is great, but Florence and Simon are not taking care of it and are behaving as if there were nobody renting it. Would they sell it to someone respectfull, we would love to come back again!
We spent 7 beautiful days at Florence apt. It is just like you see in the pictures. You have all the stuff that you need to be confortable. The weather was really cold, 11 degrees and the hit let us wishtand the cold. I will def come back.
I have not had the pleasure of knowing the owners but the 20th floor apartment is cute, can be accessed through an elegant lobby, controlled day and night from kind staff and always available with guests. The 3Avenue area is quiet compared to the chaotic Broadway and Manatthan, not far away and can be reached easily on foot by taking a pleasant stroll among blocks of various style and height. However as an alternative Taxi, bus all downstairs and Underground three blocks away. At home the WiFi works perfectly except some light, a bit outdated, the fridge very roomy but noisy, a broken curtain in the lounge room couldn't allow us enjoy the landscape that we wanted. Overall, the location is ideal for a holiday in New York.
Non ho avuto il piacere di conoscere i proprietari ma l'appartamento al 20 piano è carino, si accede attraverso una hall elegante, controllata giorno e notte da personale gentilissimo e sempre disponibile con gli ospiti. La zona della 3Avenue è tranquilla rispetto alla caotica Brodway e Manatthan, peraltro non molto distanti e raggiungibili tranquillamente a piedi facendo una bella passeggiata tra isolati di vario stile e altezza. Comunque in alternativa Taxi, Autobus di linea tutti sotto casa e l'Underground a tre isolati di distanza . In casa il WiFi funziona perfettamente tranne l'impianto luce, un pò obsoleto, il frigorifero davvero molto capiente ma rumorossissimo, la tenda della sala era rotta quindi non abbiamo potuto godere del panorama che desideravamo. Nel complesso la location è l'ideale per una vacanza Newyorkese.
This apartment was exactly as pictured, very spacious with a breathtaking view of the Empire State Building! The location was fantastic, very central. We had our 11 month old son with us, and the fact that there was a supermarket across the street was so convenient to run over and get whatever we needed for him. My husband was in heaven with the Bagel Express on the corner and the pizzeria on the opposite corner had delicious pizza AND delicious coffee in the mornings. The building was lovely, the doormen were all friendly and we were so grateful to have the laundry room in the building, which we ended up needing to use the first night after an unfortunate incident at the airport that left the baby's winter clothes in need of a wash. Florence's partner Simon was very helpful by phone and picking up/dropping off the key was simple and painless. The only constructive suggestions I can give, which are both minor, are: (1) the apartment felt a little dark in the morning/night, since the foyer light was not working and there's no overhead light in the dining area or living room (the apartment is west facing so the afternoons are better), and (2) the bed in the bedroom wasn't very comfortable and creaked a lot when you sat down/rolled over, so we were constantly paranoid about waking the baby if we got in or out of bed. Overall, we would definitely stay in this apartment again on another trip to NYC!
Florence, her husband, and relatives were easy to work with. Communication with Florence was easy and fast. My boyfriend, friends, and I had a great stay! Her apt stayed nice, cozy, and warm! The doorman was even very helpful! No complaints!
Our stay at Florence's apartment was good. We loved the location and walked everywhere with ease. It was great having a supermarket just across the street, which we used on quite a few occasions.
The view from the windows was mesmerising, but, for our daughter who slept on the fold out couch, it would have been nice to be able to shut the blinds to make it darker for a more fitful sleep.
The bathroom could do with bit of an update too.
If we returned to New York we wouldn't hesitate to stay with Florence again.
The flat is really confortable for 4 people and the view is wonderfull. We didn't meet Florence but hier boyfriend who is very nice. As the doorman who were very cool with us and kept our luggages the last day to allow us to visit the city.
The only things to noticed are the towels that didn't smell well and the broken sunblind.
Except these two items everything was good!
