A friend and stayed in Garineh's apartment for our trip to the Governor's Ball music festival. As two young guys in NYC for the first time, Garineh's apartment was great! It's small, but cozy, and the location is great too - quiet enough to get good rests, but in proximity to plenty of grocery stores, restaurants, and public transit. Would definitely stay here again!
We had a great stay with Garineh! Clean, well equipped apartment. Convenient to subway. Coffee and tea provided. Great for a single traveler or couple looking for a base in the city.
Garineh was a fine and very accommodating host, in light of our very late arrival.
The apartment is cute and has everything, though it is pretty small. Not great for hanging out. Everything was nicely laid out for us. Garineh has good taste in coffee. The building is very nice and has an elevator, important for old and/or lazy folks (I'm both). A big plus is that it is not too difficult to park on the street nearby. No meters. Though I wouldn't plan to do much driving around the city if you ever plan on parking downtown. Very good value overall for people who will spend most of their time out and about.
Garineh was a wonderful host, and her apartment as it is is perfect for a single person, perhaps even a couple. The bed is very comfortable, the apartment is clean, the bathroom and the kitchen are clean and functional. The building is part of Columbia University accommodations, and it is in a safe and well-lighted zone, only minutes from the subway (about 15 minutes to Times Square). The heat worked very well, and I could only ask for a more conventional bedding, since the bed only had blankets and bottom sheet, but no cover sheet. Perhaps you can ask Garineh for that. Garineh takes care of her guests by leaving coffee, tea and cookies, and by adapting very flexibly to their schedule. I arrived past 11 pm, and she waited for me to explain everything about her apartment and make sure I had everything I needed. She was readily available via text and phone throughout my visit, and she also replied immediately for the reservation and for travel arrangements. I very highly recommend renting this apartment!
Garineh was awesome. Nice, perfect place close to Columbia U, easy parking and a nice neighborhood. The place was perfect for me, clean with white towels and Garineh even left me cookies for the night. Easy checking and access to WiFi was a plus.
Garineh was the best host. She went out of her way to accomodate all my situations including a very bad time of arrival. Her apartment has everything you could possibly want. It's very clean and cozy; it makes you feel at home. The location is perfect. It's only a minute walk to the subway and Columbia University's main gate. Grocery stores, great bars and cafes are just around the corner. The area is very safe as it is a student area and there is always a lot of people on the street. And the best thing is that you are only 15min subway ride to Times Square. You could not possibly ask for something better for a very affordable New York stay. I highly recommend this studio. It's perfect for 2.
I could not have asked for a better host than Garineh. She went out of her way to accomodate my arrival time and was very kind to give me all the information I needed for my stay in New York. Her studio is perfect for one or two people. It's super clean and it has everything you might need. The location is great as well, only a minute walk to the subway and Columbia University, shops, bars, and restaurants. And once you're on the subway, it's only a 15 min ride to Times Square.
The fact that the apartment is private is a big plus, for this price I could not have found a place all to myself. I had a great New York experience. You could not possibly ask for a better deal and a better host.
Garineh is a very nice and reliable girl. She tries her best for you to have the most comfortable place. She has a twin bed and and a full airbed. You can fit three people in her room. The apartment is extremely clean and has all the essentials you might need. The bathroom and the kitchen are very nice. It is only a minute walk away from 116th subway station and Columbia University. The proximity to the university makes it one of the safest areas in NY. There is a nice doorman at the building as well.
I know Garineh from when she taught at my son's school. She is amazing. She is responsibility, with integrity and quite reliable. It may matter less, but she is also kind, funny and full of energy. I love her.
