Mariela was an excellent host who always got back to me very quickly, which was refreshing after having so much trouble getting responses from several other listings. Her place is in a pretty residential area of Astoria (fairly quiet, but still NYC, so unpredictable noise does happen). There are a few restaurants and a great supermarket a block (or less) away on 30th Ave. About 10 blocks away, around 30th & Steinway, there are a ton of restaurants and shops, so you're pretty close to everything you need. It's not exactly close to the subway, which might make you opt to cab or Uber it home at night when you're tired like we did a few times, but it's definitely walkable in about 10 minutes (give or take). The full kitchen had everything we needed, as did the bathroom. There's a nice living room with a nice desk, a TV with HDMI input, and a sound system. We mostly watched Netflix through an iPad hooked into the TV's HDMI port, but there was cable to watch too. The apartment has nice airflow once you open the windows and back door, and overall the vibe of the place was very nice. The beds were on the firm side, but we were able to soften them up with some additional blankets and pillows. Oh, and the terrace is great! If you're coming during a good outdoor season, it will make you really glad you chose this place!
I really enjoyed staying at Mariela's apartment with my family. She welcomed us with opening her front door, at the time of our check in.
We could be very relaxed by her welcome smile.
Although her term was private room, but she made us feel as if it is our entire apartment.
Mariela's apartment has changed our stay from traveling NY to living in NY.
I jogged at Central park with my daughter every day, then drank cold press juice at Columbus Circle.
Walking around Upper west area made me feel Tom Hanks of "You got a mail"
Broadway is just 3 stops away from 66th St. Lincoln Center. (The nearest subway station)
It was a lovely experience!
Thank you Mariela-san!
Mariela was very nice.
The room is clean and like described on the website.
Good location. Takes approximately 30 min to get to midtown Manhatten.
Mariela's home is as pretty as the picture suggests, and even more important: Mariela keeps her apartment very clean. 1 minute to 66th St subway station. Excellent host and excellent location next to Central Park :-)
We had a very pleasant stay at Mariela's. It was a nice neighbourhood, fairly quiet and felt perfectly safe. Nice rooms, nice terrace where we were able to enjoy our breakfast every morning (we were lucky because of the good weather). It was a good place to stay with my parents (who are a little older). Thank you Mariela.
I had a wonderful stay at Mariela apartment. Quiet and clean. In a strategic position with metro, bus and taxis. Mariela was warm in welcoming me and she was very reserved.
Es war alles in Ordnung und sauber. Wir durften die Küche und Ihren Kaffee und Tee benutzen.
Besonders war nach den anstrengenden Besichtigungen die Terrasse toll zum Relaxen.
Great place to stay both for a short trip to New York and longer! The host welcomed me sincerely, and explained everything I had to know to enjoy my stay in the room and New York. The host was generous and the house clean throughout my stay.
Mariela has been very helpful. The check-in process was very smooth. And Mariela made our stay very comfortable. This place is very clean and cozy. And the location is perfect. It's only a few minutes walk from Central Park and Columbus Circle. Public transportation access is great, too. There are two metro stations nearby, Columbus Circle and Lincoln Center, by which we can access the red line, the orange line, and the blue line. We had a good time there.
The apartment is easy to reach and exactly as described. Mariela is a great host. Everything was clean and accessible. The apartment is comfortable and clean. We had a great time staying in this apartment. We recommend this place and we would definitely stay in her place again. Thank you Mariela
