I needed a place to stay while construction was being done in my apartment so I chose Daniel's place. The location and apartment was nice, however, it was not clean, particularly the bathroom.
First time in NYC and first time using air bnb. Overall the experience was what I hoped for.
Daniel provided us the key upon our arrival and offered his assistance if we required it. We only saw Daniel at the start of our vacation. We did not need a babysitter and Daniel respected our privacy. The apartment was as described and in the shape you would expect a NYC apartment to be. The location was right at the end of N line and Astoria provided lots of good local eats and pubs.
Next time in NYC we will stay with Daniel.
Danny was very responsive and accommodating. a very good host. the place is in a good location with a lot of great greek foods (which I love). it's a nice bargain.
Host is very accommodating and easy to talk to...felt really at home in his place and love the area...would definitely recommend his place to friends and a very gracious host.
We arrived on a Thursday before Labor Day Wknd, and Daniel had met us at the front gate right at 6pm, just as agreed. He showed us around the entrances, and explained how the keys would work to the apartment. The apartment AC was already turned on for us, which was great because that day in particular was extremely humid.
He showed us around, and asked if we needed anything, which we were ok. Later he provided the Wifi password, and provided additional toiletries for us, which was great! All in all, a good stay, GREAT location, so many good restaurants, Brooklyn Bagel, a Ramen shop, and tons of people around at all times of day and night.
Would definitely stay again!
It was a wonderful and daniel was also very nice
El Barrio esta bien, cerca de la estación de metro.
El Apartamento es como muestran las fotos.
La ropa de cama y toallas son de mala calidad y muy usadas.
El apartamento no tiene buena ventilación
La cama no es comoda.
Las cañerías del baño y la cocina se tapaban.
El grifo de la cocina perdía agua cuando se abría.
We stayed at Dan's apartment for 8 days. The apartment looked exactly as on pictures and it was pretty clean. It had everything we needed except an iron, but Dan quickly fetched one from his car after we asked for it :) Dan was very friendly and did not mind checking in and checking out late. He waited for us in the apartment upon arriving from the JFK.
As for the neighbourhood, Astoria is beautiful. Safe neighbourhood with plenty of restaurants and shops. The apartment itself is on ground floor close to Ditmars Blvd. The subway is 5 minutes away by foot and it is the last station, which is convenient because normally you will not wait for a train when going to Manhattan, and you will always find a place to sit.
The appartment was correctly described by the pictures, and is located in a convenient neighbourhood (groceries, lots of good restaurants, subway access allowing easy access to manhathan).
On the other hand, it was far from being clean (the floor was dirty, hairs in the shower ...). Only the kitchen seemed properly cleaned.
We had the unpleasant surprise to find a couple of cockroaches during our stay, as well as some of their excrements along the baseboards. The building as a whole doesn't look like a very clean spot.
The isolation of the flat is poor, lot of outside noise and sunlight prevented some sleep. The main room is also very hot during sunny days, the only airconditionner beeing in the bedroom. If someone has to sleep in the living room, it may thereafter be hard at times. The sofa being uncomfortable, Daniel had the good idea to provide a large airbed.
The check-in was uneasy, we had no answer from Daniel prior to our arrival, and weren't even sure we could enter the appartment. We met the host for maybe one minute, and he was very eager to leave. Nevertheless, he allowed us a late checkout, which was convenient.
Daniel was very accommodating, as we needed to make some last minute changes that affected our check in date and time (thanks to a bad back). Upon arrival, we were met promptly and had quick access to the apartment. Once in, our first observation was that Daniel's pictures accurately depicted the apartment size and layout. However, much like another reviewer, we wondered what the cleaning fee charged went towards. The "clean" bedding, mattress pad, and bathroom rugs were hair and lint filled, requiring an immediate trip to the laundromat that is conveniently located a half a block away. The stained bathroom rugs were placed in the closet and were never used. Much of our first day was spent cleaning the apartment. It should be noted that the red futon is small and uncomfortable. We were aware that there was a single bed (to be used by our child who has to have a bed), but we underestimated (or more appropriately...overestimated) the size of the red futon. It was pure misery for my wife and me to sleep on. Daniel provided access to the wireless internet that never worked properly. It was unbearably slow and did not work most of the time. In fairness to Daniel, we never mentioned it to him because we were able to rely on my smartphone. Once settled, we discovered some fine eateries and grocers within walking distance. We felt safe at all times and enjoyed the area as a whole. The subway station is a five minute walk away and the train ride to Manhattan (Times Square area) is about a 15-20 minutes (huge plus if visiting the city).
