I stayed here with my family for 5 nights. I found the location to be unbeatable—the pond across the street was so much fun and so serene compared to the beach.
Laundry facilities, a stove, toaster oven, toaster, full fridge, dishwasher, and ample dish ware were all used and appreciated. The television had cable in the main room, and the internet was speedy (though the username and password we were provided was different than the one on the router).
The house had clean sheets and towels in each room, but was not as clean as I had hoped. There was a spare pillow with a stain on it, and no other spare pillows. There was food in the microwave from a previous visitor. There was a pillow and blanket in the yard when I got there, leaving me to wonder how thoroughly the house was being cleaned and looked after.
The tubs in the bathroom are described as jacuzzi tubs, but they are just normal sized shower tubs. There was no computer to use. The layout had changed and the pictures and description need updating.
I was also concerned about the webcams that are hooked up at the front door and in the living room.
Overall I had a nice stay, but these little inconveniences made me feel like I wasn't getting my money's worth. I think the host needs to be a little more detail-oriented (clean more thoroughly and update the description of the house).

Vi havde lejet lejligheden for en måned. Det er et rigtig fint kvarter med 3 metro- forbindelser lige uden for døren, og vi nød at vi kunne hurtig komme omkring i hele New York. Da vi ankom fik vi anvist en helt anden lejlighed end den vi havde booked ud fra fotos på airbnb, men det var tilsvarende. Det er en rummelig lejlighed der ellers opfyldte alle vores behov. Den var dog temmelig slidt. Udlejeren reagerede hurtigt da vandet blev lukket for en anden beboer i opgangen og det blev åbnet igen i løbet af dagen.
The apartment is certainly in a great neighborhood and is connected with 3 different subway lines which is very practical for moving around quickly in whole manhattan and even Brooklyn. The place itself is a beautiful little studio with a lot of natural light and enough space to stay there for even a month. The people who are renting the place are quite nice and try to deal with problems that might be- actually during my stay there have been huge problems with one of the neighbors that I don' t want to explain in detail and in the end they tried their best to solve the situation at their best- this was good.
The cleanness when I arrived was especially for the bathroom and kitchen corner okay but not super clean- if you are not fussy than you don' t have to worry.

Great location and perfect space for what we wanted. The bathroom wasn't amazing (there was dirt in the tub), but who really cares when you're always out anyway!
Apartment was a short walk from tons of shopping, restaurants and multiple subways stops. Very convenient. We had a great host who made sure that our stay was enjoyable. Would definitely stay there again.
I did not read the e-mail carefully, it cause the misunderstanding of getting the key, but the office send the person to give us the key within 10 minutes after I call them. The living room and bed room light is not working , the cable TV also not working and there is only one roll of towel paper, but the office send in people to fit it within an hour. The cable TV work only work half an hour and off again. We try to turn it on and off a few times, but still not working. We did not contact the office again because we can use our laptop to watch news. The internet is good. The apt. is small, but it is New York. It make a quacking sound when we walk on the wooden floor or even sleep on the bed. It is on a main street but at the back, so it is quite. The apt is more suitable for four people, because the dinning table is right in front of the sofa. It can not open up the sofa bed. If the person is small enough to sleep on the sofa, that will be fine. The place is not very nest. I think the place need to play more attention before the people move in rather than missing so many things, such as washing detergent etc.. After all the place is very convenience, close to everything. You can walk to most of the attractions with 15 to 45 minutes. The subway station is 3 minutes away.
Commençons pas les points négatifs :
L' accueil qui a été inexistante de Lionel ou bien de tanaël (employés de l agence).
Nous avions réservé le transfert par le biais de cette agence me garantissant la remise des clefs par le chauffeur et rien de cela (coût du transfert: 90 dollars plus le tip soit 115 dollars au total un taxi ne vous coûtera que 70 dollars max attention arnaque)
Le chauffeur au passage bien agréable n était pas au courant de la remise des clefs ,nous a donc prêté gentillement son portable pour appeler tanael et c est une personne dans l immeuble qui nous a ouvert et donné les clefs, nous ne l avons jamais revu (nous n avons payé aucun supplément pour la remise de celle ci)
Lorsque que j ai loué le bien je m étais mise d accord avec Lionel pour un prêt d ordinateur portable, celui ci n était pas dans l appartement il devait me l apporter le lendemain et je ne l ai jamais eu.
Nous n avons jamais vu personne, ni aucunes consignes
Agence pas sérieuse
Concernant l appartement un bon coup de rafraîchissement lui ferait le plus grand bien
Télé qui ne fonctionnait pas, aucune chaîne
Points positives :
Contrairement à d autres personnes nous avons trouvé l appartement propre ( certe vieillot )
Rideau douche je pense changé car il était neuf ça sentait bon le citron et les draps tout aussi propre
En ce qui concerne la vaisselle RAD il y a ce qu il faut
Wifi dans l appart
Literie confortable malgrès le lit qui grince bcp
Emplacement au top à coté d un métro bien desservi, d un starbucks et d une épicerie
Dans l ensemble assez calme appart qui donne sur une cour intérieur
Appart très bien situé mais je trouve que pour 160 euros la nuit ça ne les vaut pas du tout, peu de prestations et mauvaise état général de l appart.
En ce qui concerne l hôte ou l agence je mettrais un zéro pointé aucun contact avec eux ci ce n est avant de payer .
Je ne re louerai plus cet appartement et ne le recommanderai pas.
PROS: (1) The airport pick-up (additional US$90 + tip) was there on time and the driver was very pleasant. (2) As they say--- Location! Location! Location! Walking distance from FAO Schwarz, Rockefeller Center, Museum of Modern Art, Central Park, among others. And anything further away was no problem either as there's a Metro station right on Lexington/63rd. (3) Area felt quite safe even late at night. (4) Restaurant called Fig & Olive right next door is a definite plus.
CONS: (1) When we arrived, there was no one waiting for us (nor any instructions) with the keys. Tried calling and texting the host but unreachable which made us a little uneasy. Eventually, someone did show up and we had to pay a US$60 late check-in fee (for after 6pm check-ins). This fee is not mentioned in the Airbnb listing. It is only made aware after you've made the booking. (2) There was some kind of "happy ending" massage place on the ground floor right below the unit so there were random men coming in and out of the main door on a regular basis. (3) The place was not very clean and the kitchen did not have complete sets of plates/bowls, etc. (4) There was no proper heater and NYC was cold when we went. (5) Cable TV was not working. (6) Building is so old that every move made caused the floorboards to squeak. Every time my husband would turn over in bed, it would wake me up. Not to mention just walking across the apartment. (7) The bathroom was super tiny.
OVERALL: I'd probably stay here again because it's so convenient location-wise but only if I can't find something better that fits my budget.
