My husband and I stayed in Joel's apartment for a week during this past New Years Holiday and we had such a great stay!
Apartment is very confortable, cosy, very clean and warm (that was great considering the cold in NYC in this time of the year!!).
It is walking distance for Subway Station, from Empire State Building and many other central attractions!
Altough very central, you could not hear any noise from the street!
Bed is very confortable and apartment had all necessary amenities for our stay,
Joel left clean sheets, towels, soap as well as a complimentary bottle of white wine and nespresso coffee cops that we greatly appreciated!!along with a nice welcome message and some useful info on restaurants, places to eat in the nearby! He was definitely a great host and we felt like being at home!
Wi-fi worked perfectly!
Beautiful apartment, amazing location, great host! We stayed in Joel's apartment in mid-town for 9 days while I attended a conference and roamed the city.
The apartment is huge with all the amenities that most people will want (soap, shampoo, towels etc...) Joel left a nice bottle of wine to welcome us. It's a very comfortable place to be at the end of a long day. As a host Joel was perfect and took care of any issues we had from afar. There was a building plumbing issue that was fixed rapidly with great communication from Joel.
The location couldn't possibly be better for my first trip to NYC. Subway stations are very close-by and everywhere was easy to get to by transit. most evenings we found ourselves walking back from whatever neighborhood we were in.
Some highlights of the area are the Empire State building, 34th street shopping, Les Halles restaurant, Koreatown, Eataly and the late-night food cart right on Joel's block.
I would definitely stay here again.
The reservation was canceled 51 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Joel's place was great and perfectly located with great access to all corners of Manhattan island. The apartment itself is basic, but Joel was was always available to answer our questions and very prompt with both email and sms.
Outstanding location. 2 min walk to West 4th Subway stop and you can pretty much get anywhere in New York City. Thanks to Joel for the use off his place and the complimentary bagels were delicious.
Joel is very kind and attentive and left us food, drinks, soap and clean towels for our arrival. The apartment is clean and very well located, with public transportation very close by. The bed is very confortable and there's not much noise from the street. I recommend it.
We stayed at Joel's studio for a month and it was a fantastic experience! The studio is superbly located, right in the heart of the West Village. We were also right next to the Subway station, which was really convenient. Joel was not here during our stay, but he was readily available on email and made sure everything was perfect for us. He left us an excellent list of recommendations (Stumptown Coffee, Grimaldi's Pizza.. all of which we thoroughly enjoyed) and even organised for the apartment to be cleaned mid-stay. The apartment was perfect for a longer stay. Joel was also thoughtful enough to clean out his drawers and racks, stock all the necessities (toilet paper, soap, fresh sheets) and allowed us plenty of room in the fridge. The wireless internet was excellent for down time and we were very sad to say goodbye. We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to experience the real New York life, in one of the best locations the city has to offer. Thanks for the wonderful stay and being an excellent host Joel!
Joel's studio apt is in the best location ever to enjoy NYC. Walking distance to most attractions, subway, and great eateries.
Although we didnt need to contact our host, he was always available on both email and phone, and provided backup support close by if needed. Loved the welcome bagels and juice on our arrival, nice touch.
Enjoyed the stay!
We stayed in Joel studio and the place its exactly what he shows. The location of the apartment is perfect, central to many subway lines and within walking distance to amazing neighborhood.
Great bed for 2 people in the bedroom, and the AC was perfect for the hot summer days, and the wifi and tv works perfectly althought we didn't use it so much.
Joel is nice, available, communicate and even when he wasn't in town it was so easy to deal with his friends to get and leave the keys, also he was flexible with check-in and check-out, wich was a great help. One small caveat: it's on the 4th floor without elevator, which is perfectly fine if you don't have a ton of luggage but completely worth it. I would highly recommend it for anyone interested in staying in the nicest location in manhattan. Thanks for everything Joel!
We thought Joel's place was perfect! Even the four flights of stairs proved a godsend because they were an antidote to eating way too much. The place is spotless, there was plenty of room for our stuff; and Joel lent us a Michelin guide for the duration (as well as his own fabulous suggestions, including Mooncake). Really close to the 1, the 6 and the F. Great coffee at Joe's. And the bed is the most comfortable homestay bed we've ever had. Great internet access. Three minutes from Washington Square.
We were there during the December 2010 blizzard - and we just watched the snow whirl past while we were cosy in Joel's apartment. During the days after, the sun was so bright on all those snowy rooftops. Broke my heart to leave.
Joel was a fabulous guest to have. He and his group made themselves at home and took every moment they could to enjoy the city in a short period of time. Joel and I communicated throughout his visit about where to go and things to do around town. They took great care of the apartment leaving it easy for me to prepare for the next guest. The entire group were lovely to meet, very gracious, and very personable. Having guest like these makes the airbnb experience a continuous pleasure.
