Me and my girlfriend Martina had a pleasant stay at Irene's apartment. It's the right place for those who want to experience New York City from a different perspective. The neighborhood was interesting and felt safe. Transportation (6th train) is just a few minutes away at walking distance. We had a few troubles and delays due to the hurricane, but the hosts (Irene and Sylvan) had been really comprehensive and accomodating. Sylvan is a really nice person. Recommended!
The host canceled my reservation 23 days before arrival.
The owner is very hospitable, so I'm very sorry to say that the apt is not so clean (a lot of dust , everything in the kitchen was tacky).
The window is big, that is great, but it has no tend, so it was very difficult to sleep when the sun came up.
Nice place, clean and with a pleasant style in furniture, a great view of East River and the Bronx, quite close to the subway.
El apartamento es perfecto si lo que se busca es un lugar donde descansar después de pasar todo el día visitando New York. Tiene todo lo necesario para descansar de un largo día de turismo por esta maravillosa ciudad: esta a solo 5 minutos del metro en un barrio tranquilo y seguro, cuenta con baño y cocina completa y lugares al rededor donde hacer la compra o comprar la cena hecha. El tamaño es perfecto para una o, como mucho, dos personas.
Como negativo, creo que podría estar un poco más ordenado y eso le daría una mayor sensación de limpieza, porque para nada esta sucio, pero si que hay muchas cosas por medio como libros, cajas,etc.
Sylvian es un anfitrión estupendo.
Irene and Sylvan were really helpful on our frist trip to NYC! Their hospitality was much appreciated amidst the overwhelming business of the city.
The apartment being so close to the subway made it easy to get to all the different areas of Manhattan. The apartment was also convenient enough to get to by cab if you're uncomfortable in the area at night.
Great place and super accommodating host! I would definitely stay again.
We spent 6 wonderful days in NYC. The apartment is comfortable as well as having an amazing view. There are some shops and fast food nearby.
Subway station is a few blocks walking.
- Good location (although it seems you got to be careful when go out late).
- A good place to sleep at night.
- Very nice host.
Lovely couple hosting the appartment, who were really flexible when we were running a long time behind schedule. The room is charming, location great for uptown. A good find.
We had a great time in New York Irene's apartment.
The place has got 24hs securty and the subway station is very close. Also, if you are going to arrive or leave through the LGA Airport is very close.
The hosts are very friendly!
The apartment is small but it has got everything you need. Although it could be cleaner. Perhaps they hadn't enough time to do it.
Anyway... good place to stay.
