Alex is a fantastic host and the flat is conveniently located for both Mid-Town and Chelsea. The building isn't very well kept though and the apartment could need a good face lift in order to satisfy the audience used to staying in hotels. The room is also facing 10th Ave which can be quite noisy in the early hours.
Stop searching and go to Alex's place!!! We stayed at Alexes place to celebrate New Year in New York. From the first minute we were in his appartment we felt totally at home!! It is so nice to stay in a warm and cosy appartment with nice compagny! The location is just great and Alex is an unbelievable friendly and good host! He gives you great restaurant and visiting advice and he has an AMAZING espresso machine :-)!! All our future stays in New York will be with him!! Thank you so much Alex!!!
Alex is a great guy and host. Communication with him via E-Mail, Phone or Text was all the time prompt. Even after my late arrival Alex was still there and helpful, also in carrying my luggage.
He was of great assistance when we wanted to know your way around the city or wanted to find out about good Restaurants etc.
I can only highly recommend his hospitality.
I had a very nice stay with Alex. He was friendly, welcoming and helpful. The room is exactly like it looks on the pictures, everything was clean, the bed was very comfortably and the noise level of the street was OK - I slept very well. The area is really interesting and a lot of the major attractions of Manhattan are within walking distance. A great stay!
My friend and i stayed 12 nights at Alex's apartment and it allowed us to have a hassle-free, memorable experience in New York. Our original accommodation was affected due to the hurricane and within an hour I was able to confirm new accommodation with Alex! The photos provide a good indication of the apartment. it is very clean and relatively spacious for New York!. the location is also excellent and will allow you the perfect point from which to explore the city. Alex was a gracious and welcoming host. He provided us insights that only a local would know and this further enhanced our stay with him! I would highly recommend staying at alex's apartment if you want an authentic New york experience!
We arrived rather late to Alex's place where he was bright and happy to see us, he even help carry our luggage up the stairs. The room was spacious and very private, quite a rarity in New York it seems! We loved having chats with Alex about the American way of life and to get his European perspective on it. We feel like we made a friend and would love if he visited us in Australia, we'd love to see what he thinks of it. Highly recommend his place, especially as its so central to the action.
Alex is very helpful and it was really easy to contact him when we arrived at the aeroport. We are a young couple and it was our first time in new york . The flag was very clean and the situation was perfect in the middle of chelsea. Time square is above 15 min to walk and the subway is above 10 min. The neighberhood is very calm and alex was really perfect to keep us our intmity. He was great to give us some idea to eat in chelsea and to present us new york and all of her quarters. thank you very much alex , it was really perfect.. And be sure that if we come back to new york we will ask to you again to go in your beautiful flag.
We had a great time staying at Alex's place for 8 nights. The apartment is very clean. Thank you!
We had such a great time in Manhattan. Alex is a perfect host: he is kind and helpful and let us as much privacy and room as we needed. The private entrance directly to our room was also great in that sense.
Being a couple of artist photographers, the location at the center of Chelsea and its galleries was really a plus. And it is literally next to the highline, one of the most beautiful spots in New York.
The subway is however not as close to the apartment as we thought, but it is at a comfortable walking distance (10 to 15 minutes walk). As Alex points out the room is quite noisy, but if you are used to big cities it isn't that uncomfortable.
Alex is a fantastic host. He is very kind and funny, and he solve us all our doubts. Moreover, he spoke us about very interesting places and restaurants to visit, unknown for tourists.
The apartment is good and very clean, and the bedroom is huge and comfortable. It situation is great, with nearby subway stations, and Times Square to 15 minutes by walk.
In short, I highly recommend Alex's apartment in the visits to New York.
Alex was a fantastic guest! The place was left clean and payment was super fast.
Alex was courteous, friendly and treated the property with care. We would welcome him back anytime,
Alex is a very nice person. He brings with him a feeling of happiness and very pleasure conversation.
He is welcome any time in our property
Feliz in Roma B&B
