About This Listing
This is spacious 2 bedroom apartment, with a full kitchen, bathroom, and living area. The area is shared with myself, and can accommodate up to 3 guest with no difficulty. The apartment is on the 5th floor and gives a great view of Central Park.
The available room has a queen size bed, and a futon sofa. This gives ample sleeping space for up to 3 guests. The room has its own two-door closet and dresser for guests who like the at-home feeling. Large full sized mirrors give you the ability to look your best before heading out in the big city. The kitchen is fully equipped with anything a person would have in their own home, and you are welcome to cook or buy items to help maintain an at-home feel. Just as the room you will be sleeping in, the living room has a spectacular view of the central park and NYC skyline.
When renting this room, my goal is to have the feeling you never left home. Guest are welcome in all the areas of the apartment, and if you have any special accommodations I will try my best to help with those request.

Erg est un garçon charmant qui nous a reçu comme des rois. L'appartement est fonctionnel et très bien situé. Un séjour formidable. Merci à notre ami Erg.
Erg è una persona disponibile, gentile e discreta. L'apparetamento è situato in un ottima posizione. Ottimamente servito da mezzi pubblici: metropolitana dietro l'angolo. Consigliatissimo.
It was the first time we used AirBnB. We did feel very welcome at Erg's apartment.
Erg was a very good and very friendly host. He succeeded to make us directly feel at home.
The room was very spacious with a splendid view at the Central Park. It was very clean and there was very much space to hang our clothes in the wardrobe.
The apartment is near a subway station and in a safe environment. We stayed 9 nights at Erg's and we enjoyed every day of it. For a future stay we certainly will to try to stay at this place. Erg was very welcoming and helpful.
Staying at Erg's place was simply great.
Before we arrived: He sent accurate and continous information about how to get to the appartment, not only regarding best transportation but also about how to enter in case he was not there when we arrive.
During our stay: The appartment is exactly as it appears in the pictures. Very comfortable bed, plenty of space to hang your clothes and amazing heating system!
The appartment is very cozy, clean and with amazing light. Right in Central Park, metro station just around the corner and very safe area. Ideal to go for a morning run before visiting the city!
Erg shared information about places to go (to visit, to have best breakfast ever...) and how to get there. Very friendly but at the same time very respectfull with your space, no doubt I will repeat for sure!
I cannot imagine best first airbnb experience!
Location: Superb! Central Park IS just across the street, the subway is a 1 minute walk, major museums a 20 minute walk.
Cleanliness of Unit: Superb. I am fussy about this sort of thing, and found the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen spotless (don't stay here if you are messy/sloppy by nature: you will find the cleanliness intimidating!).
Safety: The apartment felt totally safe and secure; we arrived home by subway after midnight and felt safe walking to the apartment.
Quiet: remarkably quiet apartment and minimal street noise for NYC.
The Host: friendly; polite; excellent pre-visit communication for planning, key pick-up, etc.; host found the perfect balance between social and unobtrusive during our stay.
Parking: the unit advertises "Free Parking". True, but misleading, as the free parking is on a very busy street, we never saw a free space, and you need to switch sides of the street each day. Expect to pay $25/day at a nearby parking garage for the length of your stay: you do NOT want to be driving in NYC anyway.
The Bed: excellent quality and lots of clean bed linens. The fold out fouton: as good as any fouton. Lots of places in the room to hang or shelve clothes. Excellent mirror in bedroom. I saw an in-window A/C unit, but not needed in March during our stay.
OVERALL: I will book this unit on my next trip to NYC. I would recommend this unit to a friend. This was my first AirBNB venture, and it was 100% positive.
This was my first time using Airbnb. Erg was an awesome host, very friendly and welcoming. He gave me great advice on local restaurants. The location couldn't have been any better! His apartment has a lot of character and was definitely a cool place to stay. I slept there very well because it was so quiet.I would love to come back again. ^_^
About the Host, Erg
I moved to the US about 12 years ago to study and I fell in love for this Country, so I started my own business here in NY now. I like to travel on my spare time, make new friends and get to know new cultures.
