Warren's place is relatively spacious for Manhattan and ideally located if you're going to the theatre; it's also an easy walk to Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall, and I felt perfectly safe walking back home well after midnight. The #11 bus stops just around the corner on 10th. Subway access is a little more of a hassle - the closest station is the Port Authority Bus Terminal on 8th at 42nd, which is not particularly convenient when the weather is freezing.
There's some street noise, and the apartment is located right next to the building entrance, but overall it's fairly quiet.
The pictures are somewhat flattering - the floor and furnishings are not in great condition. The mattress is on the firm side and pretty comfortable except for the significant dip on the left side. The armchair (the only seat other than the two chairs at the small dining table) looked in need of cleaning. The little kitchen area was clean and adequately supplied with basic things like cutlery and a few plates, bowls, and such, but only one of the burners on the stove actually worked. The microwave is awkwardly placed if you're short.
The bathroom was very clean and there were plenty of towels, toilet paper, Kleenex and so on. It is an old building, though, so the plumbing is an issue: water pressure in the shower is poor and the temperature fluctuates unpredictably. The hot water faucet in the shower gets HOT - grab it with a towel or washcloth to avoid getting burned. There was also a significant leak in the water supply line; it was promptly addressed by the building maintenance man, but rather inconvenient to deal with - I happened to be home when he arrived, but did not feel comfortable leaving my belongings around, so I lost a few hours that day waiting for him to finish the repair.
The deli next door is open 24 hours a day and also delivers for free - very handy when getting in late at night, or (as it was the week when I was here) if it's too cold to go out in the morning.
There's a decent amount of closet space, though it's a little crowded for hanging a coat or other long garment; there are also plenty of drawers in the chest and nightstand.
Wifi access is reliable but slow. One thing I did appreciate is the number of electric outlets - I've stayed in far too many places that had no place to charge all my electronics.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay. Warren is a pleasant host who was always in touch any time I had a question or issue. I would suggest a little more attention to detail, but for good basic accommodations in a convenient location, his place would probably suit.
Perfect located and curiosly quiet being a ground floor. Also well aisolated which was important due to cold outside. Under my point of view it needs a bit more cleaning.
Appartement très bien situé à moins de 5 min de Time Square. Propre, bien chauffé. Warren est un hôte qui vous met tout de suite à l'aise. Je recommande.
We got the keys from Warrens friend Bassam, who gave us a quick briefing about the apartment. The studio is not in that good condition as the pictures, and the bed was just not god, but the apartment has what you need, and is worth recommend to others.
Warren is a great host, and he helped us store our suiscases before we were going to the airport, which he also helped us to go to.
Stay here for a quintessential NYC stay in hip Hell's Kitchen. It's centrally located and easy to walk to all parts of the city. Warren went out of his way to make our stay went smoothly. He met us late at his front door when our flight was delayed and made sure we were okay later on in the week before a snow storm.
La casa está bien situada, es cómoda y cumple su objetivo.
La limpieza y estado del baño es deficiente y deberían solucionarlo para dar mayor confort al inquilino. En particular, la limpieza se paga aparte y no es lógico ver telarañas en el techo del baño; el lavabo se atasca enseguida, haciendo muy incómodo el uso del baño.
Este apartamento es magnífico. Muy bien ubicado, a solo unos minutos a pie de Times Square, ofrece una solución perfecta para un viajero individual. El apartamento se ajusta perfectamente a la descripción ofrecida. Al estar en la planta baja es ideal para los que lleven bastante equipaje. Es muy cómodo y está muy limpio y ordenado. La atención de Warren fue perfecta en todo momento, desde antes de la llegada hasta la salida. Realmente, un apartamento que no dudo en recomendar.
The apartment was great-exactly as described-and Warren was a great host. No problems whatsoever.
Warren was a fantastic host, very friendly and easily contactable.
The apartment is actually bigger than it looks in the photos, we were pleasantly surprised. Nice and clean, everything in good working order. We stayed for three weeks and made it our home, there was room to unpack all of our clothes. We loved the neighborhood and felt very safe. The tenants in the building are all friendly and the Deli on the corner is really cheap and very friendly also.
It was nice and dark in the apartment at night and surprisingly warm during the winter. We didn't notice any noise from the neighbors and street noise was at a minimum too. It's also within walking distance to most things.
Warren is a host with great integrity. He cares about his guests and wants them to feel at home. We ultimately booked with him because he didn't raise his price over the Christmas and New Year period like everyone else did. That alone, said a lot about the kind of man he is.
Thank you Warren and Michael. We will be back. Next time we will remember to leave the wine and cookies for you both :D
The apartment was perfect for our 10 day vacation in New York and was in a really convenient, amazing location! We had a bit of a problem with the lock on the door on Christmas Day, but Warren handled it really well, paying us back promptly for the locksmith we had to call in. We would definitely stay here again!
Excellent guest! Had no problems! Apartment left very clean! Sergey
What a GREAT guest!! Warren was incredibly communicative, nice and super, duper clean! :) He was such a great sport about someone being there to add in an extra AC too. I sincerely hope that when he visits LA again, he stay with us again. I would bend over backwards for a nice guest like Warren.
Warren was a lovely guest, very nice and clean.
It would be a pleasure to host him again.
Warren was the ideal guest. Easy to deal with by email. Super nice guy. If it wasn't for the thank you note he had left us, we would have never known he had been at our place. I would 150% recommend him as a guest.
Warren is very friendly, clean and tidy.
Great guest , it was a pleasure to be his host , the place was very well kept, looking forward to have him as my guest again.
