The place is nice and welcoming at first glance. As you can see from the pictures its minimal but clean and updated. Clerence is the man and is always around to help with any questions. Feel free to always shoot him a call he is quite handy and friendly. Don't waste your time contacting the host because any issues you might have in the house will either be directed to Clerence, or just be denyed. For example, Q: the shower has no heat, and the heater seems to be off. A: Dont touch the heater, there's nothing wrong with it, there should be hot water. Q: Does the stove not work because fire wont come on. A: It works, dont press anything you probably locked it. Other than being kind of rude, the host is quick to respond, but why waste time contacting the host with answers like that, when you can just call Clerence or just fix it yourself. Taking issues into my own hands I turned the heater on myself, and the warm water magically came back (why the heater turns off all the time, or why the host couldn't just tell me to turn it on instead of to "not touch anything", i do not know. Why the stove had a lock button that we were not simply told about, i do not know.) Aside from that, and sh*t cable/wifi that doesn't work (it may connect but it will be slow enough to basically considered not working), the place is actually pretty nice. So if you're like me and don't get frustrated too quick or care much about amenities like cable or wifi, and willing to mess around with things a little bit, or simply need a nice place to stay, then you will enjoy this place. The beds are a bit uncomfortable, but the couches and kitchen where we spent most of our time were pretty nice and comfortable and its nice to have 2.5 bathrooms as well. The area is nothing to write home about but when is it ever in NYC unless ur in the middle of the city. Its pretty obvious you have to have a thick skin to live in Harlem so don't expect anything pretty from the neighborhood, though the apt is gated, so you can feel somewhat safe if you want to just sit on the steps and get air. The 24hr deli across st is really convenient and sandwiches there are awesome, and there is street parking all over the place (you do have to feed the meter until 7pm). Again, don't expect much and you'll enjoy the place, especially with its easy access distance to everything uptown, or the highways that take you down. Note: We had some friends visit us so we put on some music and made food. This was followed by a text by the host mentioning the no-party-rule, and the immediate exit of all guests + threat to call police. LOL Like i said-...
Per essere la prima volta che mi affido ad airbnb, sono rimasto pienamente soddisfatto. L'host è sempre raggiungibile telefonicamente. Sotto nostra richiesta ci ha dato anche un mazzo di chiavi aggiuntivo. Il quartiere a mio parere è carino, e facilmente raggiungibile con la metro. Unico aspetto negativo: nonostante la presenza di tre ventilatori, l'appartamento è molto caldo perché non si possono aprire le finestre.
The appartment was what we were expecting. A nice, little flat just 20' by subway to times square. Although it was little we didn't notice because we spent all day outside and just used the appartment to cook some dinner and sleep. There was no noise at night so we could sleep peacefully. There were plenty of cooking gadgets so we could cook everything we wanted. We just find a little bit difficult to get in touch with the person who had the keys of the appartment because we were arriving late to JFK and he might have fallen asleep. But after 5-10' of ringing the bell he finally answered (he was not really nice, he just gave us the keys and tell us which was our block of appartments).
We had a really bad experience... The house is really really dirty, floor, walls, drawers in the kitchen , bathrooms and when I say dirty I swear to be nice (we had a blast with the fridge) . The sheets provided did not fit the beds. Meaning we got a one person sheet for a twin bed. Broken things all over the house. Also the neighborhood is not nice people out there are weird but this is New York and the owner cannot do anything about that. Just if you have kids don't choose this spot. So we stayed 1 night and had to move to the hotel we could just not stay there. We would had move the 1st night but it was too late. We were not waiting for luxury but at least a clean place witch is Not. Also if you are more than 4 witch could be the case since it's a big place be aware that you'll can't eat together since only 4 chairs are provided (same for forks, knives...) . Also it is said that there is wifi, but actually no. Now you can rent this place with all the information.
A no frills, stripped down duplex that does have tons of space.
Would have given a higher rating if we were provided with adequate bedding/linens, but upon arrival only four of the seven beds had sheets and we were given only four towels for our six guests. I inquired via email/phone/in-person to the owner and contacts listed in the house manual but the issue was never resolved.
The listing also states four bathrooms but one had a non-functioning toilet.
Other than the linens problem - Clemence was incredibly helpful and a pleasure to meet and talk to.
The duplex is located within easy walks of two subway stops and steps from the north entrance of Marcus Garvey Park which was nice to wander through and explore.
A spacious outdoor patio out back provided a nice place to sit and talk.
Overall, its a get-what-you-pay-for. Lots of space, not much else.
Excellent apartment. It has a very nice feel to it with the exposed brick and all the furniture. Central air was great during our stay. Also it's very big, which is nice to have in the city. Kitchen came with plates, bowls, cups etc; more than enough if you need to cook something.
Apartment is in a great location, close to subway as well as grocery store and various restaurants/shops.
Only complaint was that the back door lock was broken so we didn't have access to that, also one of the shower handles didn't work.
My friends and I were very pleased with our choice to stay here. The host Inna made was very accessible and had no trouble with communication. Overall I would highly recommend this place and will probably stay here if I do return to NYC.
Experience was great. Was visiting NYC with a large group. Place was exactly as advertised, comfortable, and suited our needs perfectly. Will definitely consider it again in the future.
Sigh. The pictures of the common space really sold us on renting this property, but the reality is nothing like the advertising. The entire duplex was dusty, the furniture plus lack of bedding made the upstairs unlivable, and the nice big dining table featured in the photographs was nowhere to be found. The duplex was rather spartan, ESPECIALLY the bedding.
That being said, Clarence was very nice, responsive, and professional. There was plenty of street parking and the subway is extremely close by. However, I still wouldn't recommend this place to a big group if they're looking for beds to sleep in.
We were looking for a place to use just for sleeping while visiting the city, where we could also have light meals for breakfast and dinner. The place fit the requirements. Apartment matches what you see in pictures - has 2 beds to fit 4 people (one is a sofa-bed), one closet, TV with basic channels, a mini kitchen with a microwave and minibar fridge, stove with no oven, coffee maker and toaster and even a dishwasher, which we did not use. Wifi access was not a problem. If you want to cook, you might find that you have to buy some basic stuff, as matches; but we only used the microwave. Bath functioned as expected. Apartment was in an old building in Upper Harlem, very close to 145th st. station in a very diverse area (Black/Hispanic/Middle Eastern/Caribbean); however, if you are not looking for a place with character, this place might not be for you.
L'appartement est bien situé, sur le quartier d'Harlem, pas loin du métro 125 Streets, faut tout de même marcher en direction du boulevard Malcom x (10min).
Le quartier ne crains pas, (ne pas faire attention à certaines personne du quartier, ne pas regarder droit dans les yeux) vous comprendrez une fois la-bas, mais c est un appartement qui vous fait fondre dans la masse et vous vous sentirez dans la banlieue américaine, comme dans les films.
L'appartement est très spacieux, je ne vous cache pas que notre séjour nous a pas permis de profiter de l'appartement, le reste du temps nous étions dehors.
Point négatif: poussières sous les lit et canapé, (cela peut-être bloquant pour les allergiques ou les maniaques).
Télé ne marche pas (mais bon, rester à new York pour regarder la télé, c'est pas top.)
Point positif: Wifi dans tout l'appartement (Cela permet d'être en contact avec ces amies ou famille rester au pays).
Manuel was a nice guest, communicative and respectful. Wish to welcome him again.
