Merci Jeff et à bientôt !
You will love this place!! Jeff's apartment was beautiful Just like you see in the photos. Everything was clean and tidy with very very good taste and had a lot of space.
The neighborhood is nice and feel safe. The apartment is very close to the train, about 5 minutes walking. Jeff was very nice host. Although we haven't seen him, he left us a lot of reading material about the city. In any matter that was we sent him an e-mail and got an answer right away.
I recommend you all to take this place, you won't regret it.
Très bel appartement, situé au sud d'Harlem. Beau duplex ! Les lignes 2 et 3 de métro desservant l'ouest de Manhattan sont a peine 5 mn de l'appart, les lignes 4/5/6 desservant l'est sont à 10/15 mn. Quartier animé et très sympa au niveau de la 125th.
Jeff's place was great! The apartment was tidy and a good size. Location was fantastic - walking distance to the Meatpacking District, and subway lines. I would definitely recommend Jeff's place to stay. He responded promptly to all correspondence, it was a pleasure.
The location of the apartment was very good! The bed was very comfortable and a good sleep is very important when you are on vacation. Apartment was quite clean, the kitchen was nice but a good knife and maybe a frying pan would be nice to have. We had fantastic time in NYC, thank you Jeff!
Apartment was perfect. Actually was surprised how big it was for New York. Had a separate sitting room, comfortable bedroom, and easy to get in and out right on the ground floor. Perfect Location. 2 blocks from Chelsea Market, etc etc. Great time in New York. Jeff was easy to work with and everything went smoothly. Thanks!
We had a great stay at Jeff's apartment! Location was perfect - trendy, quiet (for NY) neighbourhood and less than a 5 minute walk from 2 subway lines. Also we never struggled to get a cab from right out the front door. Apartment is small but fine for 2 people! I would definitely stay here again next time I'm in NY considering how affordable it was and the location. Some of the other reviews state hygiene as an issue but I didn't notice this aspect at all - the building is a little old and tired but clean. As we arrived, the cleaning lady was just finishing up and everything looked and smelt very sterile so it was never an issue. Jeff was helpful and sent us a list of things to do while in the city etc. I would recommend this apartment if you want a relatively decent sized space in a great location at an affordable price.
We (a couple) had a great stay.
Ups: Location is excellent, apartment is large enough and near to the subway. Jeff mailed us very good instructions for picking up the keys and he added some nice tips too.
Downs: Jeff might want to invest in new bed linnen and towels (washed too often) and the building's hot water piping is right next to the bed (produces ticking noise and radiates warmth).
To the people worrying about hygiene after reading some other comments: it's not that bad. ;) No seriously, it's an old building and there's some cracks and dust and all, but hey, it's no hotel, what do you expect? Or Jeff improved his cleaning skills by the time wo got there...
Conclusion: I'd definitely recommend it to friends, not necessarily my parents.
The apartment was everything it was supposed to be, the location is amazing, and even though it was only days after Sandy came through, there were no hiccups in our stay. Recommended!
Located right by the famous Meatpacking district, the location of the apt is just perfect. The apt is pretty spacy and cozy. When I arrived Jeff told me that the hot water didn't stop dripping in the bathtub and that someone would take care of it. Unfortunately that someone showed up after more than a week and didn't really solve the problem, he just showed me how to turn of all hot water underneath the sink, so it would stop dripping. This all was extremly annoying, because due to the hot water dripping, it was about 100 degrees in the aparment all the time and it felt like living in a sauna. I was really upset, that nobody really took care of the problem. After my two weeks stay, the water is still dripping. The bathtub is really old and it is extremly dirty underneath it. That was pretty disgusting. The shower is kind of low. My height is pretty much average and I had to bend down, to wash my head. Other than that, the apartment was really cozy and nice. It even looks better than on the pictures.
Then hurricane Sandy hit the city. I did not have any electricity, nor water, which was clearly not Jeff's fault. I thought about moving to a hotel and wrote Jeff about it. I did not get any response that day. The next day I contacted Airbnb about all my concerns. Jeff was really helpflul then, he offered me to charge my phone at his place, or to take a warm shower and asked me if I needed anything else. He even went down with the total rent and I got a pretty big amount of money back, which was a really positive reaction from Jeff. Since there were no more flashlights in the whole city available, I asked him if he could bring me a flashlight, unfortunately, he couldn't make it that day. The next day, the electricity went back on.
Except for the dripping bathtub and the really dirty floor underneath it, I can totally recommend staying with Jeff.
Jeff is a great guy, we enjoyed having him stay with us and would gladly host him again.
Very nice person ! Thanks for coming Jeff !
Jeff is the perfect guest! I had a problem with the water in the flat and he was so pacient and so polite and so comprehensive! Thank you again, Jeff! I wait for you in Paris a next time!

Jeff, I am pleased you enjoyed your stay in my house, and so you did appreciate the privacy of your apartment. You had selected the studio with the fridge, microwave, and coffee maker only. You are welcomed to rent, next time, a larger studio with fully equipped kitchen if you are interested.
Best regards, Alexandre
arrived in the evening, left in the morning, left the apt clean, so I was happy and and think jeff was as well, sorry I didn't have more nights for him but rooms are hard to find at the last moment so did my best, thanks, good guy (i think)
Great experience! good communication with friendly people.
Jeff was a great guest and a nice guy! Hopefully if we visit NY we will get a chance to stay at his place!
