I live in NY but travel a lot. Have been both an AirBnB guest and a host. Hope you like my place!
I've had the luck of staying in different places throughout Manhattan and this is by far the best located place I've ever been in. Hell's kitchen is a great area by itself but you are literally a few steps from Times Square and Broadway theaters.
I think it was less than a 2 minute walk to our play, no exaggeration.
The apartment itself was great as well, incredible views, comfortable bed, kitchen, dining area, etc. We never cooked but if that is your thing then you will love it.
Adam is an incredible host and will answer all your questions fast, he also leaves very detailed instructions in his apartment of all the things you can do, can't do, should do, etc. He leaves recommendations of the best places around, also leaves you keys to the building gym and roof, and many other fun little reads.
The building itself is really nice, from the outside is one of the slimmest buildings I've ever seen, and really, really tall. The apartment is in one of the highest floors, so you will see airplanes and helicopters wooshing buy at almost alarming altitudes, it's incredible.
There are actually 5 floor to ceiling areas in the apartment, three in the living area and two in the bedroom, so you have views to all over the place, Hudson, 8th street, times square buildings, etc.
If you want more views all you have to do is use your special access key and go to the roof, where you will have an even better view of Manhattan, and there are chairs so you can go and read your favorite book.
There are only three apartments per floor so that makes the whole experience very exclusive. I stayed there for 5 days and in that time I only saw people in the elevator with me 3 times.
The experience of going in is very streamlined, you enter your building, there's a 24/7 very polite doorman, the elevator is right there, you barely walk at all, take the elevator up and the room is practically a few steps away from the elevator.
Thank you Adam for a great, great experience!
Adam has been an outstanding host. The apartment is incredible. The pictures are not exaggerated - there is a spectacular view both from the living room and from the bedroom. The neighbourhood is packed with shops and restaurants.
I highly recommend this place for visiting NYC.
My second time staying here. This time a bit longer, so the gourmet kitchen came in handy. It is well equipped and has all you need to make a great meal. But you didn't really come to NYC to cook did you? :) Although I must say that slicing, dicing, and all that good stuff feels inspired when you are doing it with a view like this apartment offers. Pictures don't even come close to doing it justice. You can just gaze out into the city and see helicopters flying at practically eye level above the Hudson to the west, and the lights of times square reflected in the buildings to the south. Of course you can get all this from the multitude of venues throughout the city, but few apartments offer a comparable sprawling view that you get to wake up to.
The location is perfect and apartment as described. The host Adam couldn't have been more helpful. We were using the location not only as accommodation but as a work environment. It was perfect for both.
Superb experience. Great building, great location. Waking up with a view like that will put a smile on your face. The Sonos sound system and piano are a nice touch. The fact that there is no TV is only a plus. You shouldn't be wasting time on that in NYC anyway :)
Adam is a wonderful host. I hope you get a chance to stay at his place. The views are awesome. The apartment is lovely. We had a great time in New York. Thanks for everything Adam!
Adam's flat is absolutely fantastic. As first time AirBnBer's, we could not have hoped for a better experience. The pictures of the apartment do not do it justice - the views are incredible and the location was very convenient - something that was particularly important for us as we had a very short stay. The building itself is also great, with a rooftop terrace and a well equipped gym. We were greeted by a bottle of wine on an arrival which was a lovely touch, and a list of good places to visit nearby. We had one person on the sofa bed which was a great size and very comfortable. We hope we can return next year!
Adam's place was amazing! He was very responsive and accommodating. I really enjoyed my stay at his place. Everything was modern, clean and comfortable. Plus, that view is really something.
El departamento de Adam cumplió con todas nuestras expectativas. Unas vistas extraordinarias a la ciudad, cerca de todo y con todas las comidades para que no falte nada. Adam, siempre atento a todo. Totalmente recomendable.
We loved staying at this apartment in NYC. It looks just as good as the photo, and Adam certainly did everything to make us feel welcome. There was a small glitch with the cleaners, and as soon as we told Adam about it he moved very quickly to have it rectified.
The location is excellent. We saw two Broadway shows, and could walk to both of them within 6 or 7 minutes. The neighbourhood is lively, lots of hustle and bustle, but the apartment being 37 floor up is beautifully quiet and the views are really amazing. We never tired of watching the sunsets over the Hudson river.
Overall we were delighted with our stay -- great apartment in a very good location, and it is well set up for travellers.
Hosting Adam felt like having a family member stay. He was the best guest I could imagine. He was very interesting, kind, respectful and so clean that I couldn't even notice that he had been here. I wish we had more time to chat and would have him back anytime.
It was lovely to meet Adam who was a super guest and we would be happy to have him back
Adam was a great guest
Adam was nice and easy going. Most of the time you hardly knew he was around.
Adam is a wonderful guest!
Adam is absolutely a fantastic guest. Even better than all the nice reviews i read about him before deciding to accept his reservation.
Hosting him was a real pleasure
Adam was a great guest. We was very responsive and courteous. He took great care of the apartment and we would definitely be open to renting to him again. I would highly recommend him as a guest to any fellow hosts.
Although his stay was short, I found Adam to be very friendly and positive. Would definately rent to him again.
nice couple adam and his friend
short and sweet visit here, but very nice to meet them.
Adam and Laura were terrific guests. They kept us informed of their plans, left the cabin in tidy shape, and led some of the most interesting discussions we have had this summer. We'd love to have them return.
