I'm professional, easy going person who believes in communication and respect . Enjoy traveling, sport, movie, restaurant, reading and spend good time with my friends.
Robinson was really flexible, we got into the city early, and he was able to meet us in a very short time to let us in. He told us where everything we needed would be. He had plenty of suggestions for shopping and eating out. It was all very helpful. The space is exactly as described. Linens were on hand. There were plenty of plates and utensils, the fridge was spacious and modern. It was a nice experience overall. The only possible downside is if you are not prepared for the constant buzz of the city getting to sleep the first few nights can be tough.
I just got back from my trip a couple days and I absolutely loved Robinson's studio. I miss it already. Although I didn't have the opportunity to meet Robinson as he was away on a trip, he was very prompt and courteous by having his cousin meet us to give us the keys upon arrival. The neighborhood is very warming and the people are friendly even late at night. I had read in one of the reviews that the bathroom did not have outlets, which is true; however, I bought an extension cord and left it in the closet for future guests. You're welcome. What you see in the pictures is what you get, they are very exact. The building is a bit rundown, but what matters in the studio. It's worth it. Trains are nearby which make it easy to get around. The only thing I didn't like was how long it takes to get from Brooklyn back to the studio - especially at night when you are exhausted. But that's just me being lazy, so still worth it. The neighborhood has a lot of small shops and restaurants and even a pharmacy nearby. I highly recommend the restaurant across the street called South Beach Restaurant and Lounge. I wish I would have known about the place earlier. This place was actually recommended by Robinson's cousin who kindly gave us his number in case we needed anything. He was helpful in recommending how to get to Seaside Heights and he even hung out with us to watch one of the World Cup games! The place overall is clean, warming, and spacious enough for 4 guests. The building is right above a highway so yes, it is noisy at night but you're in NYC, you don't expect complete silence do you? The air conditioning works great! Sometimes we had to turn it down or even off because it got cold fast, so just keep it an an average temperature. There is a small grocery store not too far where we bought cereal, milk, juice, etc. for breakfast because eating out can add up quickly. If you're going to watch TV (local channels only) make sure the antenna is plugged into the outlet...took us a while to figure that one out, lol. Oh, if you're coming in from Newark Airport be sure to use the airport shuttle to Port Authority in Times Square, from there you can transfer to the A train that will drop you (email hidden), which is only a few blocks away from the studio. The shuttle is only $16, so you can avoid the $100 cab ride that unfortunately I got charged with (I wish I would have known that earlier, oh well). Anyhow, I definitely recommend this place. We even made friends with some of the other tenants there! Can't wait to go back. Gracias por todo de nuevo Robinson y Yonathan! <3
Had a short stay here when visiting NY. Location is good however it does take about half hour on the trains to Times Square. Coming back in the evenings and early hours was never a problem we always felt safe although don't judge the area on first impressions as it can seem a bit intimidating. The room was basic and you get what you pay for. The beds comfy and there's a hot shower and working kitchen. The only issue with this place is the bugs that are everywhere and it isn't the cleanest but for the price you can't complain.
Abbiamo soggiornato in due per 10 giorni nell'appartamento al 17 piano. Le condizioni dell appartamento sono buone. La zona è abbastanza trafficata già dalle prime ore della mattina per cui bisogna adattarsi un poco. La biancheria è composta da 3 asciugamani e 2 paia di lenzuola.
Nessun problema con i vicini.
Il quartiere è molto colorato e caratteristico. Può dare un sensazione di insicurezza la sera ma non abbiamo mai avuto problemi anche tornando a tarda sera in metro. È preferibile usare la metro A che fa meno fermate e in 30 min porta a midtown. Il quartiere ed il vicino Fort Tryon Park meritano una visita. Nel parco c'è un museo medioevale The Cloisters.
Robinson è molto gentile e si è reso disponibile ad un tour del quartiere oltre che dare indicazioni sul quartiere.
Unfortunately, our experience in Robinson's appartment wasn't very good. The room we had wasn't the room we booked on airbnb's website. It wasn't welcoming. The hall and the sharing (with other roommates) kitchen, bathroom and restroom weren't clean at all (We had to clean each bowls, plates, ... before using and there were a lot of hair on the floor). The bathroom smelt bad because of a lack of ventilation (no windows in the common area).
There were also good points but I dislike lies and I think that I wouldn't have trusted the description of the room.
Malheureusement, notre expérience chez Robinson n'a pas été satisfaisante. La chambre que nous avons loué sur Airbnb n'a pas été celle que nous avons effectivement occupé pendant notre séjour. L'appartement et notre chambre n'étaient pas accueillants. Le hall et la cuisine, salle de bain et toilettes, qui étaient partagés avec d'autres colocataires, n'étaient pas propres (On devait absolument nettoyer la vaisselle avant de l'utiliser et il y avait des cheveux et de poils par terre). La salle de bain sentait mauvais, pas de ventilation car aucune fenêtre dans les parties communes (hall, cuisine, salle de bain et toilettes).
Il (email hidden) des bons points mais l'annonce ressemble plus à une arnaque qu'à un bon plan.
Very nice, comfortable and cozy. This is deep in the heart of an urban neighborhood. A little noisy at times but safe. The people are friendly. Several places to shop and eat in walking distance. I drove, so had to walk two blocks to a $20 for 24 hours parking garage. Very enjoyable. I would stay here again.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The area wasn't so inviting initially but we warmed up to it. It was safe and everyone seem to be minding their own business. The room was just like in the photos. We get what we paid for and we liked it, except for the squeaky bed.
Robinson was nice and friendly. He answered all our questions and even brought us a standing fan upon request the very next day. Our flight was delayed and we arrived at 2am but Robinson still showed up and let us in the room.
The other roommates was alright. We didn't see them often as we were usually in our room or out all day but they were all pretty decent. The noise on most nights were tolerable and only gets loud occasionally.
If u book this room, bring your own toilet paper, towel and basically everything u need personally to make your stay much more comfortable.
All in all, great stay and host!
Esperienza super positiva per ospitalità e confort.
Appartamento pulito, spazioso, luminoso e dotato di tutto l'occorrente....anche il ferro da stiro! Vicino a tutti i tipi di negozi e praticissimo per metropolitana linee 1 e A che consentono spostamenti rapidi in Manhattan down town, musei e i principali punti di interesse. Mr Robinson e un eccellente padrone di casa, cortese, ospitale, e pronto ad intervenire in caso di (website hidden) lo consiglio anche per gli aspetti di sicurezza, sorveglianza 24h/24h, e ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo.
The apartment was just as stated. There were no surprises. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was well appointed. We brought our 2 kids along and the pull out sofa was perfect for them. There was even an extra pad for the mattress so that it was more comfortable. The building was secure and we felt safe going in and out. There is a laundry on the second floor which was great for us. The subways are within close walking distance, making travel around Manhattan easy. Our host was friendly and extremely helpful. We contacted him because we were running late & that was no problem. Our kids were tickled with the balcony too. We would definitely stay here again.
Robinson (email hidden)-operative and helpful host, giving us all the information required, as well as how to arrive from the Airport , followed up with phone calls to make sure everything was ok.
The apartment is near the subway you can use it day and night, lots of things to do in the area.
The accommodation was good we could use the kitchen with all the necessary things to cook, all was comfortable and suited our needs..The price we paid was fair for this type of room.
