We spent two perfect nights at Laila and Eric's. The room was very cumfortable and clean, and the apartment is really well located, next to the subway and in Manhattan.
We only saw Eric, who was adorable and made a little tour of the neighborhood with us. We recommend !!
Eric was a very helpful host. He introduced the neighborhood to us through a walk, explaining us all the oustanding aspects we should know, and giving us info and recomendations. The room was as in the pictures. The policy of not shoes inside, helped to keep the site clean. The location is great, near from chinatown and Little Italy, also from couple of metro stations, and a lot of places to eat or buy food. We met Laila the day before our checkout. She was also very nice and flexible with our checkout time.
Excelent location. Room is confortable enough to sleep, even for three. You are supposed to be outside knowing this espectacular city. Common areas of the apartment have all the necesary. Eric is an excelent host, he welcomed us with a walking tour around the neighborhood giving us all the details about places to eat, transport etc.
Despite a flight change that made us late by 6 hours, Eric welcomed us and showed us around the neighbourbood. We were grateful as I had two hungry kids with me!
The room is very airy, brigh exceptionally clean(as is the apt) - just like in the photos. We were there in the summer heat and can attest the aircon works well. We were one adult and two 13 year olds, and felt we had enough room for our cases and ourselves (it is New York aferall).
Eric was responsive to all our questions and gracious as a host. There are a lot of guidelines for the apt (e.g. take off shoes at the door wash recyclables and put in trash) which is great - it makes it clean and comfortable for all guests. I really appreciated this.
This place is just on the outskirts of China Town. I loved morning coffee (Grumpy Coffee) in the park watcing them practice Tai Cgi and Quigon. Of course, Chinatown and heat also means that it will have an aroma. Not a bad thing, just a question of personal taste..... In my mind the proximity to so many restaurants (try (website hidden)) was a big plus.
The best part of this apt is the location. It is very convenient and close to the subway station.
The host was very good. He was on the phone by SMS since we landed in JFK and organized an inexpensive but good taxi-service for my son and me.
The room and bath was just as seen in the Airbnb prospect. Nice and clean and available kitchen which we did not use too much. The neighboorhood was new too me in spite of many visits to NYC in the past. But it was very charming and more interesting than the standard Uptown areas where I usually have staid in the past. And of course much less expensive.
We certainly felt very safe, the airconditioning, TV and Wifi worked very well.
I could have wished for a small desk in the room where I could sit to do a bit of online work. Also maybe a reading lamp for bedtime reading.
Overall a very good experience, I would not hesitate to come back.
What a great experience-- our first with AirBnB! Eric could not have been a better host-- gave us a tour of the neighborhood (with some great dining suggestions) and was always helpful answering any questions.
Our accommodations were immaculate and spacious, and the neighborhood was surprisingly quiet. Very easy to get anywhere in the city via subway from their location. Thanks for a great stay, Eric!!!! We hope to see you again!!!!!!
A lovely and clean apartment located in an exciting part of New York City. My family and I really enjoyed this space, as well as its convenient location. Eric was a very gracious host and was extremely attentive to all of our needs. He even gave me a tour of the neighborhood shortly after welcoming me to the apartment. I would highly recommend this space!
Merci à Eric pour son accueil très sympa, l'appartement est vraiment très bien et bien situé pour visiter Manhattan.
Our experience was very good, the flat is located in a great neighbor close to the restorant, metro, supermarket
The apartment was very comfy and the bedroom is exactly that the description. The bad thing was they are fixing the streets right outside the building ..too noise for our vacation
Eric was a very good landlord , we went out around the neighborhood and he give to us some advice...
Absolutely recommended !!! This is my first time with airbnb and for my next trip I'm definitely think about to rent trough this app
We were not home to meet them, but they left our home as clean and neat as they found it!
Laila was a very nice and good guest. She is very welcome back to my apartment!
Laila is the perfect guest to have! She is a very friendly person! When I checked her out, the apartment was neat and tidy. It was nice of her to do that.. and she took the time to leave me a thank you note. Its was a pleasure hosting her and she is welcome back anytime. Best of luck on the rest of your travels!
Laila and Eric are a sweet couple. Eric repaired computer issues I was having without asking. Laila made lots of useful suggestions about the space. I never new if they were in or out as they were so quiet.
Laila made the reservation for her mother who was visiting from out of town. While I did not get to meet her mother personally, communication with Laila was seamless before and during her stay. Her mom was respectful of the space, although she left dishes in the sink upon her departure. Other than that, I would be happy to host her again.
We had a great stay but in regards to the dishes we did pay a cleaning fee specifically so we did not have to wash dishes. Just for the record my mom left 2 plates a 2 cups.
Laila stayed at our house for a day.
She was going to stay at our house for four days but she couldn't because her boyfriend had an accident so she had to come back ASAP.
So we talked only one night, but it was so nice experience for us.
She was a great guests!! Very friendly, polite and clean!!
We highly recommend her as a guest! Thanks a lot Laila!!!
And we sincerely hope he will get well.
See you again:)
Very good guest, Welcome Presence again.
Laila is nice and friendly, they left the place clean and in good condition. I will recommend them to every host, thank you!
Laila and her friends were absolutely delightful…very warm, personable, fun and great communicators. They expressed a lot of appreciation for our home and the ethnic flavor and they seemed very comfortable and relaxed. Everything was very clean when they left; trash and recyclables taken out, dishes washed, laundry in the hamper...spic and span! We are hoping that they will return to see more of the Hudson Valley, as we would love to see them again! It was an incredible first experience and Laila was very willing to offer us advice about airbnb, as she is a great fan and rents to guests herself! Thank you, Laila and friends, for giving us such an positive start to this process and our Hudson Valley gem is waiting for you!!! All the best to you and your friends!!! Pamela and Navin

L'appartement de Laila ou comment se sentir chez soi à NYC !
J'ai passé une excellente semaine dans l'appartement mis à disposition par Laila
L'appartement était propre, extrêmement bien équipé et Laila à disposition pour répondre à toutes mes questions et demandes.
Je recommande et j'y retournerai ;)
Leila es una anfitriona increíble a demás le sale natural, le encanta ayudar a la gente a que pasen excelentes vacaciones..A demás la casa tiene todas las comodidades, se sitúa en un lugar muy céntrico en Nueva York.. Prueba y no te arrepentirás ;)
I think it is difficult to imagine anyone more apt to be a 'inn-keeper' than Laila. She is generous, warm and very detail-oriented, and an amazing cook. She likes to travel (a lot!) and does so with her curious and inquisitive spirit, hugging tigers and bears on the way. She also keeps her home clean and tidy, always ready for folks and friends that arrive in NYC. All this makes her LES apt a hub to come back to after all adventures the city has to offer.
Laila is a very nice host, always giving you tips and being really helpful and concerned about your trip.
We became friends because she is really friendly.
Laila is an amazing hostess and super friendly. Made me fell like home and became a friend.
My Daughter and I had the pleasure of staying at Laila´s place in Marts. She is the best host and even showed us around on the first night. We had a wonderfull room and private bath. We would stay there again . So we can highly recommend this place.

My name is Michael and i'm from Pisa, Italy. I met Laila in Thailand randomly, because we were in the same hotel. We started to travel together for a while in South East Asia, and i think that without her we couldn't do so many activities and see many places: she knows EVERYTHING! She's come to visit my country and sometimes she's teached me things that i didnt know about my culture or my history!! I think she's honest, helpful, funny and very active!! I really hope to visit her in NYC soon and see her places :)
I have known laila for a few years and i cant think of a better host. Her apartment is located in a very cool nighborhood. Many bars, restraurants, art gallerys and cafes. The apartment is very clean,, comfortable and well decorated. Lots of art from all over the world. As a natuve new yorker laila can provide you with the insiders guide to the city.
Laila and I met on the road in Bangkok at the same hostel and spent several great days in the city. She's a tremendous travel companion, always very knowledgeable and connected. She made her native Morocco sound like heaven and I hope I get the chance to take advantage of each of her amazing recommendations.
