I am a web developer, and me and my roommate have a very large apartment uptown Manhattan. We are also both graduate Students. We enjoy traveling, and are always happy to meet travelers.
I was doing a winter internship in Manhattan. Lenin waited in the apt before my arrival, gave me the keys, and made sure everything I needed was set. The apt is spacious and clean. 10 min walk to the subway. Wifi, smart TV are available. Everything is good.
Lenin was very attentive and necessary. We missed with him for several hours. But were no problems with the settlement. Everything was perfectly organized and extremely clear.
Apartment very close to two metro stations, easily accessible from both the airport and the main attractions.
Little Layla and JJ cat always greeted us. It was like going home, very nice in another big city.
(by the way, bed heated - great stuff in winter! )
Nicolas and I needed a place to stay for a month.
We were warmly welcome by Lenin however we got very surprised when we learned that Lenin was not the one living with us in the flat.
His brother Waddys and sister Bethania was living in the appartment;
We did not see any other airbnb member during our stay but our friends who booked with us.
Lenin, Waddys and Bethania were very friendly but we did not really share anything together.
The only snag was the fact that the apartment was very dirty.
We stayed for a week as needed to have a safe place to stay. The bed was confortable. It's not very bright, but I love a lot of lights. The neighborhood is fine, great restaurant bellow, bars, grocery shops, fast foods and subway stations. The Central Park is 5 minutes walk a way, Betty, Lenin's sister, was very nice, willing and helpful and I really appreciate her help and advices.
Der Aufenthalt in NY war super!!! Wir haben zwar in den 7 Tagen nie Lenin gesehen, seine Schwester war jedoch immer sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Zimmer und Bad sind zwar nicht super komfortabel und sauber, aber es reicht vollkommen für die Nacht!! Ich würde das Zimmer auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen, v.A. auch wegen der Lage (2 Blocks zum central park und zu ubahn!)
I was staying in Lenin's apartment for the whole month of August, since I needed to have a safe place after my arrival to NYC. I stayed in Lenin's room, which was ideal or my purposes. There is a big bed, a big wardrobe, AC and night table with lamp. It's not very bright, but if you don't need to read all the day, it's OK.
The neighborhood is fine: there are restaurants, bars, grocery shops, fast foods and subway stations. The Central Park is 5 minutes walk a way, Columbia University Campus is 10 minutes cross the Morningside Park. If you have some concerns because of its location in Harlem, you'll be surprised how safe you will feel there.
Betty, Lenin's sister, was very nice, willing and helpful and I really appreciate her help and advices.
Betty (Lenin's cousin and house mate) was very welcoming and the room was a good size and nicely kept. Would recommend staying here if you want to be close to all the action.
The house was at the end of central park. To the border with Harlem. The building was not very clean, by Italian standards. However, considering the prices of New York and the time (very small) which stay in the room in New York, it was ok. Betty, Lenin's sister, was very friendly :-)
.The bedroom is big and comfortable. The air-conditioning was very important to our comfort and good sleep because the Ny summer was very very hot. The neighborhood is safe and the subway station is very close. Althought we haven't met Lenin in person his sister received us very well and left the apartment at our disposal. We are happy about our choice and recommend it. Abraços Dani e Marco.
Lenin and Betty were two great hosts, they found the time to hang out a couple of times, show us around and go dancing! The apartement was nice and spatious, and each person that we met in it was worth getting to know. The air conditioning was a real reliever. The appartment is well situated, 2 subway stations at both 2 or 3 blocks away (which is really close) and a great bar right under it with great staff and good live jazz at occasions. I would definitely come back if ever I repeat the experience to NYC!
una persona descomplicada. no tuve ningun problema con el. muy recomendable
Lenin wa a wonderful guest; friendly, clean and respectful. I felt very comfortable having him in my home. Both our schedules were quite busy so our paths didn't cross much, but I enjoyed meeting him when we did. I happily recommend him as a guest and would host him again without hesitation.
