Very bad !
Appartement très bien, et parfaitement situé mais pratiques malhonnêtes : Après avoir reçu confirmation sur l'annonce de Airbnb, nous avons compris que c'était un autre appart. qui était mis à notre disposition, puis sur place on nous a demandé 300$ de taxes (non prévue) en plus de la caution (soit 600$ en liquide au total, je n'avais que 400$ sur moi et on a fait avec). Les taxes n'étaient pas indiquées dans le document transmis par le logeur, qui n'a pas pu les justifier. Enfin le jour du départ il n'y avait personne pour nous rendre la caution, et par téléphone nous avons compris que seulement 36 $ pouvaient nous être rendus. Nous sommes donc repartis en laissant un message qui est resté sans réponse. Comportement inacceptable qui a gâché la bonne impression que nous avions de Airbnb, sans compter le surcoût non prévu. A éviter absolument, donc.
My colleague and I had a great stay at the Lincoln Center apartment. Marys was very helpful in accommodating all of our needs and was quick to respond any time we had a question while staying in the apartment. The apartment was clean and comfortable, with only very minor issues (like noisy heaters/pipes) that any NYC apartment would have. It's no 5 star hotel but for the price and location it was perfect for our needs. I would definitely stay there again.
My only advice would be to double check with Marys about which photos correspond with which apartment. She has more than one apartment listed on Air B&B and the photos that appear are not necessarily the pictures of the apartment you are interested in.
Overall, a great experience and great apartment.
The host canceled my reservation the day before arrival.
Well the apt was in a good location that was a +. But there was a lot of neg.'s about the apt. 1st apt was dirty hadn't been professionally cleaned. And after we paid a cleaning fee I wasn't happy about that. Furniture was old and worn. On the first night night the master bed fell off frame. After I looked under the bed it was being held up with particle board. When I told land lord she accused me of taking it off frame. I told her that I didn't put it back for fear of falling again. She said she was going to come by and fix it, but didn't. The bunk bed was also very shaky lacking some supports. I feared it would fall on the kids all night. I don't recommend an adult sleeping on top. Every piece of furniture in this house is uncomfortable and when I gave Mary the constructive criticism(about maybe getting comfortable furniture) she was offended. There were crumbs and food particle under rugs,behind fringe. Strong foul odor in kitchen when we got there. Base boards and dusting were needed desperately. Pipe's in building were very loud, water in shower was unpredictable. While I understand that the building is old, at the price we paid a lot of improvements should be made. My husband works weekly in NYC and we were looking for a place that we could continue to rent when family came up. However this won't be the one. Renter also beware Apt may be being rented illegally. Mary asked that we tell anyone that asks, that we were friends of hers not tenants. We will definitely do more research next time or stay in hotel....
The host canceled my reservation.
Mary's rental was great. I was very pleased with how helpful and accomadating she was. The apartment was just like the pictures and everything that was included was available. My NYC stay was wonderful thanks to Mary.
Great location, clean apartment....exactly as in the photos. Had a great time.
5 star guest. Clean, quite, respectful.
A neat, respectful and quiet guest.
