We had a great stay at this place. Lena was very easy to reach to organize our visit and was very friendly flexible and helpfull when needed, thanks again !
The place is great regarding quality price and localisation (close to time square and 5 minutes by foot to the 42st station that is direct to the airport and great to go up and down in NYC)
Pat and I had a very comfortable stay at Michael and Lena's in Hell's Kitchen (Midtown). It was located conveniently close to Port Authority station giving us easy access to both Uptown and Downtown via subway. Lena and the rest of the residents in the building were friendly as were the neighborhood businesses along 10th Ave. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was a bonus allowing us to fix a lovely Valentine's Day dinner courtesy of the Chelsea Market which was also just a short train ride away. The studio was the perfect size for two, nice and warm during a frigid winter week, and had everything we needed. Lena let us know to contact her if we were lacking anything during our visit, but nothing seemed to be missing. We were a short walking distance away from Broadway shows, shopping, tons of restaurants, CVS, dry cleaners/tailors, and public transportation. Plus, we loved the feel of the older walk up building living as opposed to a high rise. We would definitely come stay at Michael and Lena's again! Now an added anecdote: New York being the first stop along our 2 week trip before flying to Europe, my suitcase had endured a brutal tear exposing the contents of my luggage. Not good. I asked Lena when we first arrived if she would recommend anyone in the area who could possibly fix it. She suggested asking the tailor downstairs in the building. He didn't have the equipment to fix it, but he suggested maybe finding a shoe repair. (website hidden)d shoe repair nearby and up popped Vera's on 9th. They had my bag fixed in less than 24 hours for $35. God bless New York, Lena, the downstairs tailor, and Vera's!
If you are looking for quiet warm apartment and near to Times Square then Michael's apartment is for you. I and my daughter spent 6 days there. The apartment was very clean and had a very homely feel. Lena was a host. We did not meet her in person but had quite frequent communication via messages. She was available any time and was very supportive. I would recommend this place for my friends and definitely will chose for my next stay in NYC.
GREAT place to stay in Manhattan. Walk distance from supermarkets, drug stores, good and cheap restaurants, and the main fact : walk distance from Times Square and the main Broadway shows. Besides that, I got all attention from the host, clean and organized apartment, I'll certainly come back and recommend to my friends. By the way, the cheese croissant and coffe with milk and sugar at the deli downstairs are very good!
Very nice and clean apartment. Excelent locación close to times square. I stayed there for 5 nights and we had a great time. Great host!
J'ai séjourné dans l'appartement de Michael pendant une semaine avec une amie. Nous étions en contact avec sa soeur, Lena, qui nous a toujours répondu rapidement et s'est enquise de la qualité de notre séjour à plusieurs reprises. Elle est très disponible et sympathique (bien que nous ne l'ayons jamais rencontrée (tous nos contacts se sont faits par mails et par téléphone)).
L'appartement est très bien placé et correspond aux photos. Il est un peu vétuste mais a répondu à nos besoin. Le seul bémol c'est la salle de bain, qui est un peu petite, il n'y a pas de lavabo (mais on se débrouille avec le l'évier de la cuisine et les miroirs de la chambre).
Le quartier est très sympa, il y a beaucoup de restaurants et de bars à proximité.
Excelente localização, apartamento limpo, confortável, espaçoso. Recomendo.
Even though we never met in person, Lena was a great host. She gave very descriptive direction to help us get in and always replied promptly. The apt. was in great location with easy walking access to restaurants, grocery, bars and Times Square.
Great apartment in a good location close to times square in a good nighborhood. The apt was clean and has an awsome view over the city. I stayed there with my friend for 6 nights and we had a great time. And a very nice host!
The description was completely accurate and I would certainly stay again if I'm in need.
Michel was a great guest- also an Airbnb host. He and his girlfriend were so nice and appreciative in the midst of a bad storm which took out the power. They are always welcome to stay with us.
Great guests – thoughtful, independent, easy to get along with. They're welcome back anytime.
Michael and his girlfriend left the place super clean - great guests. There was a bit of a problem up front with not being able to contact him directly or confirm check in/check out times since his info on Airbnb was for his sister, not him. But once we did connect, it was a smooth and enjoyable interaction.
they are very clean and nice guest and expecting to host them again
