Samantha was a great host and totally accommodating. She has an amazing apartment with everything you'd need. I'd highly recommend staying at her place!
Althought we finally couldn't meet her, we spoke to her several times, and Samantha was very helpful and charming. She was available for every question we had.
The apartment was just as beautiful and spaciuous as it looks in the pictures. And, the rooftop was amazing!
The location was simply great, in a very safe area, and within walking distance to some of the big things in NYC.
I and my wife booked apartment from Lourdes for 4 nights. We were extremely happy with our stay and entire first experience with AIRBNB. Lourdes has a very nice apartment which is very well decorated. Apartment has very nice location on 47th between 2nd and 3rd Ave.
We met Lourdes on date of our arrival and collected our keys. She gave us a little tour of her apartment and we were all set. We didn't require any assistance from her for rest of our stay but she was reachable by phone.
This apartment is a doorman building. I think it is a very big plus as this is a very safe complex and very helpful doorman for moving luggage in and out of the building.
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who would like to have a peaceful stay in New York city. We would gladly rent her place again whenever we are back in the city.
When another Airbnb host cancelled our reservation a couple of weeks before my girlfriend and I were due to travel to NYC on holiday we were in the unfortunate position of needing to find somewhere else to stay at short notice. Thankfully Lourdes was able to host us for part of our stay, which was great! She's very responsive and communicative, which made getting things arranged at short notice a piece of cake.
We ended up staying in the apartment of another Airbnb host for a few days before we moved to Lourdes' place, so needed to coordinate checking out of one place into the other. She was really helpful and accommodating in arranging a time when we could meet her at the apartment with the minimum amount of hassle. In person she was very friendly and easy to get on with, and it was nice for her to show us up to the apartment and make sure we were settled in.
The apartment itself is very nice. Well decorated, clean, light, and a good size for Manhattan. The kitchen is well separated from the main room, which helps keep the noise from the fridge etc. to a minimum. Overall it's fairly quiet, just a bit of traffic noise from the streets below. The kitchen is nicely equipped too should you need to eat there, however being tourists in the city we were eating out and about, so didn't get the chance to try it out. The bathroom has nice fittings, and a decent shower and bath. My only word of caution, the shower head is relatively low on the wall. At 180cm it was about OK for me, but if you're much loftier you might find it a bit tricky.
Getting out and about was pretty easy. There's a couple of stations within a few blocks walk, but we found we mainly went down to Grand Central Terminal, from where the express trains get you up and down the Island very quickly. Plus you can pop in and see the amazing concourse.
Overall we had a great stay here. Lourdes was very helpful in putting us up at short notice and is extremely easy to communicate with. I'd happily stay here again, and hopefully next time have longer, so that we could make more use of Lourdes' offer to share her tips from years of experience of the city.
We had a lovely 5 days in NY during the spring 2012. The apartment is beautiful, light and clean perfectly located on 47th street between 2nd and 3rd. This apartment is equipped with all you can possible need. This was the natural choice of apartment for our little family vacation.
The host is very services minded and helpful. So where the door men who always helped us out with baggage and our stroller. We would gladly rent this apartment again if we get the chance to go back to NY.
We spent very Good Time in NY, Lourdes was fantastique, very easy to communicate whith her. The appartment is very clean and very nice, the location is perfect! We recommend it! We hope to come back Again :)
We spend 5 fantastic nights in this cool and very confortable apartment. Everything was very clean and well decorated. The location is very good and Lourdes made it very quick and easy for us.
I would definitely recommend it!
Booking with Lourdes was so easy! She responded right away and communicated often which made it easy to check in. Her place is great - open, brightly lit, clean and comfortable. It is a very stylish place and I enjoyed my stay. The location was absolutely perfect as I needed to be in mid town. I can highly recommend Lourdes as a host.
This was our first stay in NYC and it was incredible! The condo staff was super nice and our host was more than accomodating. The place was clean, hot shower, and very comfortable! We stayed 7 days and will definitely try to stay here again when we come back :)
