I am an MA film student at Columbia University.
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.
