The apartment is located in a very nice neighborhood. Everything is within a walking distance. The apartment itself is cozy and exactly as described. Raphael is an amazing host. We shared a lot of interesting talks, food and music. My husband and I highly recommend Raphael's apartment for your next visit in NYC.
My stay in NYC was our first experience using Airbnb. Me and my wife stayed there for a week and we can state that:
Good points: the apartment is very well located and the neighborhood is fantastic, Raphael is a very gracious host, the bedroom has a comfortable bed and is enough for a couple
To improve:small details, like lighting with a dim bulb in the bathroom, and organization of spaces in the kitchen (e.g. counter, sink and refrigerator) which made us give up enjoy this this room and its structures.
in short, we loved this trip, our stay and hope to return to NYC as soon as possible.
Response from Raphael:
My thanks to Rafael for his feedback! I'm happy to report that the dim
light in the bathroom has now been replaced with a good, bright one for
everyone's convenience. Best, Raphael
Perfecta localización, apartamento fiel a la descripción y muy buen anfitrión. No tengo ninguna queja en ningún aspecto por mi parte y lo recomendaría sin duda.
Excellent place ideally located, everything as described and clean
Raphael was a really nice host and I won't hesitate to come back.
Raphael is a great host and I completely recommend this apartment. It is great value for the location and a relaxed environment. His recommendations of the space are accurate. Thanks so much for the stay!
Apartment as described. Small and friendly. Very confortable bed in a quiet room. Tiniest bathroom. Fantastic location. We'll go back! Raphael is a very nice, friendly and discreet host, respectful of your privacy and also open to contact if you want to. He knows NYC inside-out!
Raphael et son appart sont très sympas et on garde de l'un et de l'autre un très bon souvenir.
We had a great time in New York and did really enjoy staying at Raphael's ! The room was clean and tidy and Raphael has been really welcoming. The flat is also situated in a great location, with walking distance to Washington square, Greenwich, Soho and the East Village.
hôte très recommandable pour ceux qui aiment la "zénitude". A chaque rencontre dans l'appartement, Raphael reste à votre écoute et peut répondre à la plupart des questions que vous pouvez lui poser. homme francophone cultivé, même s'il ne le laisse pas paraître. Je pense qu'il se débrouille en italien et espagnol. C'est un américain complet comme on les aime.
Pour nous ce fût une bonne rencontre, comme nous aimerions en avoir à chaque voyage dans le monde, Vetty et Jacques.
Raphael was a lovely host. He was friendly and had great recommendations for restaurants in the area. The apartment is in an ideal location - within walking distance to great restaurants, shops, and the subway line. Thank you for the hospitality Raphael!
Notre séjour chez raphael a été excellent, l'emplacement de l'appartement est un vrai plus. Bien que petit, tout ce dont nous avions besoin était là. L'hôte est extrêmement gentil et serviable. Je recommande à tout le monde d'aller y faire un tour !
