Staying at Cynthia's felt like staying at home. She's the perfect host: careful, inspiring, willing to let you some privacy while providing full support if you ask her. Plus, she's a very talented photographer, and there's plenty of things one can discuss with her.
Her house is conveniently located in the Upper East Side, with plenty of restaurants (be sure to check out the Mexican taqueria 'El Paso') and stores in case you need them. Three blocks away from Central Park (where I spent a couple of relaxing afternoons), no more than 100 meters far from the subway entrance (line 6): what else could you ask for?
The house itself is not particularly big (I guess it's normal for NYC standards), but decorated with a fine taste and sense of decor. The bathroom is almost a work of art in my opinion. :-)
My room was small but comfortable, and Cynthia did everything she could to help me with anything I needed. I had just arrived and decided to take a shower, but then I accidentally broke the shower hose... as soon as she noticed, she immediately went out to buy a new one. So very kind of her.
So, the next time I'll plan a visit to NY, I will definitely try to get back to Cynthia's, and I suggest doing the same for everyone! Just check out with her which room is available (she has two), because tall people like me could have some hard time sleeping into one of them (but I got the other one this time).
Cynthia is just AMAZING!!!! I was nervous at first coming in someone elses home, but Cynthia made it really easy. She is a wonderful person, very welcoming. If its your first time on Airbnb, Cynthia is made for you, i felt at home in the minute i put my foot in the appartement. The appartement is SPOTLESS, very clean and really comfortable. It's really close to everything, the subway is 30sec. from her appartement, and theres an amazing mexican restaurant 2 blocks away from the house......( amazing Guacamole ). I defenitly want to go back sooner than later.
Cette appartement est parfaite pour une personne seule. Je recommande fortement Cynthia, elle est très gentille, chaleureuse et aimable. Je me suis senti chez moi dès mon arriver. La chambre était parfaite........air climatiser disponible dans la chambre!!!! WOW.....premiere fois sur Airbnb et certainement pas la derniere.
Thank you again Cynthia xox
À bientôt :-)
Cynthia was a great host. Very flexible, courteous and available. Her place is a beautiful experience and the location can't be beat: diverse area, a block away from the subway and a short jog to central park. Would recommend.
lovely as usual
L'appartement de Cynthia est idéalement situé, à deux pas de Central Park dans un chouette quartier. De là, il est facile de joindre tous les sites remarquables de Manhattan. Cynthia, artiste engagée au grand coeur, donne beaucoup de son temps et de ses connaissances à ses hôtes. Qu'elle bichonne lors de leur séjour.
Une vraie rencontre et des découvertes.
Just returned from a stimulating few days chez Cynthia. The apartment is warm, comfortable and beautifully furnished and decorated (check out the chandeliers...). She is great company, interesting but also interested in you. And helpful, whether recommending great bookstores, alerting you to art exhibitions or printing out your boarding pass for you. I enjoyed my stay immensely and hope to be back soon.
I loved staying in the Red Velvet Room! It has a sleeping loft that makes you feel like a kid in a treehouse, or a bird in a nest - I slept like a rock! Cynthia is a totally interesting artist, just the kind of person I would want to meet in NYC. She is very hospitable, makes up a good healthy breakfast to start off your day, and even lent me one of her own bags to carry all my stuff in - that saved me! The room is very clean, and beautifully decorated and designed. A great place! Thanks Cynthia!
Le séjour chez Cynthia a été vraiment très agréable, la situation de l'appartement est idéale, près de Central Park et du métro, et le décor de l'appartement est magnifique, digne d'un palais vénitien !!! Cynthia et une hôte très accueillante, prête à donner des informations, nous aider dans nos recherches, nous donner des conseils. On se sent vraiment chez soi.
Being a first time Airbnb user, I had a hard time trying to sort out where to stay in such a big city...however, this apartment was a true adventure and haven at the same time. A great find!
Opulently decorated with art work by the owner/host, it is well presented, clean and comfortable. Even though the rooms are snug, it is more than enough for the single intrepid traveller.
Breakfast is a healthy mix of granola, hemp and chia seeds, raw chocolate a dash of agave oil and a generous dollop of natural yoghurt. A great starter for the busy day of sightseeing or shopping aead.
Close to the subway direct to downtown and a short stroll to Central Park, it also has many facilities in the area including a 24hour convenience store/pharmacy, some great eateries and drinking holes.
Best of all, the host, Cynthia, is a warm and most approachable person. She is helpful, has great tips for exploring the city and loves a chat.
I would recommend this apartment to any one who wants to explore and experience New York like a local.
Staying at Cynthia's place was just great and would recommend it anyone who's interested! She's very sweet and the place is just awesome :)
Cynthia, who is a leading airbnb host in New York City, is a wonderful guest: excellent company, prompt, tidy, charming, generous. I'm only sorry her stay was so short. I recommend her to you without reservation. Five stars.
Cynthia's apartment in the Upper East Side is a place not to miss. It is relaxing and yet intriguing. Her art work dresses the walls and fits within the home being an art piece in itself. Her apartment fits in with the locations, as Museums decorate the neighborhood. Easy to get to and from, with subways and busses located only a block away. I've stayed at her place before, it's a very good deal and a fun experience.
Cynthia is a warm and wonderful artist, caring and sweet. It would be FABULOUS to stay in her home, which has art work which astounds you!
