Ci siamo trovati benissimo nell'appartamento di Simone, pulito e molto ben organizzato. La zona è molto bella, con diverse fermate metro a 5 minuti di distanza, tanti negozi e ristoranti, molto animata sia di giorno che di sera. Simone è stato sia prima che durante il soggiorno sempre gentile e disponibile, veloce e dettagliato nelle risposte e ci è stato di aiuto ogni volta che ne abbiamo avuto bisogno.
En lineas generales nuestra experiencia en lo de simone ha sido buena. El departamento es agradable, esta ubicado en una buena zona.
Nuestra evaluacion no puede ser superior por ciertos detalles que en suma van restando confort a la estadia. Por ejemplo, un baño diminuto, la falta de tostadora o microondas (a esta altura bienes basicos e indispensables), una cama medianamente confortable y el ruido molesto que producia la calefaccion por las madrugadas, que muchas veces interrumpia nuestro descanso.
El inconveniente mayor se produjo al finalizar nuestra estadia. Convinimos con Simone en entregar las llaves del departamento en un local (key cafe) que el dispuso, alejado seis cuadras del departamento. Por supuesto, dejamos para ultimo momento la entrega de las llaves para reducir lo mas posible el tiempo de espera hasta nuestro viaje de retorno. Debo decir que no nos agradaba mucho la idea de tener que desplazarnos por la mañana, cuando la temperatura es de lo mas cruda, cargando nuestro equipaje. Sin embargo accedimos, y esa fue nuestra parte de culpa. Creemos que lo mas conveniente hubiese sido que una persona se presentara para recibir en mano las llaves y de paso constatara el estado en que devolviamos el departamento. No obstante fuimos y nos encontramos con la ingrata sorpresa de que este local estaba cerrado!! Con el transporte al aeropuerto esperandonos, nosotros seguiamos con las llaves en nuestro poder, sin saber realmente que hacer.
A partir de aqui se suceden una serie de reproches entre simone y nosotros sobre la responsabilidad de una y otra parte respecto de las llaves. Sin entrar en detalles, creemos que todo se podria haber resuelto de mejor manera si simone hubiese aceptado al menos parte de su culpa, en lugar de hacer hincapie en nosotros como unicos culpables, cuando lo cierto es que el bendito key cafe tenia mal publicado su horario en su sitio web.
Su postura nos hizo sentir aun peor, agravando un malestar que podria haber sido pasajero de ser otra su conducta. Mas aun nos llama la atencion viendo las buenas criticas que otros huespedes han hecho en el pasado sobre su trato.
Por suerte, simone nos propuso enviar a alguien por las llaves en nuestra residencia. Asunto resuelto. Sin rencores.
Perfect location in between SOHO and the Village.. Simone was very helpful and accommodated our plans greatly as we had an early check in and late check out!
We had a fantastic experience at Simone's apartment. It is very centrally located between 2 areas we visit most - Soho and West Village. Although located on major roads, we did not find the noise to be unbearable, in fact it made it feel like the true NYC experience. No loud bars nearby etc.
The actual apartment was great, very suitable. Includes a fully equipped kitchen and big comfortable bed. Perhaps not the best place for entertaining guests (we had some friends in town) due to the configuration however we didn't mind - we mostly went out. Bathroom is small but (website hidden) has a full Netflix subscription which my partner loved.
Simone was a great host. Whilst not being in NYC at the time, he was quick to respond to any questions and to organise for someone to meet us at the apartment initially. We had a very minor issue with the bathroom at the end and he was very quick to contact us to resolve. We were most impressed.
Overall, a great apartment and experience and would recommend to anyone. We would happily stay there again!
Grazie a Simone ci siamo sentite per una settimana delle vere newyorkesi! Appartamento perfetto, spazioso e luminoso! La zona è assolutamente cool e fashion, molti ristoranti con ottimo cibo, tanti negozi e molte fermate della metro a 5 minuti di cammino. Un'esperienza da ripetere senza dubbio e che consiglio a chi ha voglia di sentirsi a casa anche se dall'altra parte del mondo!
The apartment is perfectly located and nice as shown in the pictures. We didn't met Simone personally but he has been communicative, always kind and available.
Being on the first floor front street means the apartment is a bit noisy during the night, even if the windows give you a good acoustic isolation. Never had a problem to sleep anyway! The bed is quite big (being used to french beds) and also extremely comfortable!
I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to be out of the chaos of the midtown, but at the same time being able to reach any interesting places in 10 to 30 minutes by foot or metro!
Amazing place in great location
Very easy to coordinate arrival/departure with Simone - everything as described!
It is a perfect studio. Excellent location. The studio is well equipped and in the middle of New York buzz. Clean, functional and modern design with all comforts. Simone was a perfect host. Quick in communication and solicitous. A great way to stay and discover New York. Close to subways, art galleries, fashion shops and great restaurants and cafes. It is also extremely close to NYU for the academic environment. A bit noisy for the light sleepers but ehy this is NY.
The apartment was perfect. Very clean and nice. We where 3 and it was comfortable for all of us.
The location was amazing. Close to shops restaurants and subway station.
The communication with Simone was really easy and pleasant
I would be happy to go back!
We had a wonderful week staying at Simone's apartment. It was very comfortable, with everything we could need, including excellent air conditioning (for the hottest week of the year!). The location is perfect, right between Greenwich Village to the north, and Soho to the south, and easy walking distance to several subway stations and to the lovely Washington Square Park, a great place to hang out. There was a great, relaxed feel to the neighbourhood. The nearest supermarket was only a block away on Bleeker Street, with a fantastic selection. We also enjoyed visiting the famous Bitter End venue for live music - great atmosphere. OK, the apartment is on a very busy junction, and there IS, street noise at night, but we soon got used to it (and were so tired) that we slept well. The bed was extremely comfortable. We also particularly loved the Nespresso machine, and picking up croissants for breakfast from the fantastic Payard Bakery just a block along the street. Simone was a great host, and very good in his communication about our arrival and departure. Everything was exactly as described - I would thoroughly recommend.
Nice guest! Come back anytime! Cheers
Simone was polite, clean and easy going. He respected our house rules. He really treated our place like his own and at the same time had great respect for the apartment during his stay. I would not hesitate to host him again :)
Simone was a wonderful guest! Easy to communicate with and treated the apartment with care, would definitely host again and you should too!
Simone was a wonderful guest--easy to communicate with, neat, responsible, took great care of my place. I would definitely host him again!
Really nice studio, much better than it looks in the pics, since it is very spacious and cozy...will come back in June
I've traveled quite some time with Simone, most of the time sharing rooms/apartments, and He survived, this must mean something...
Plus He is a cool guy...
Simone is the most honest, wonderful, responsible friend and incredibly accommodating and relaxed. I can't say enough about him.
Simone is a friend of a friend of mine who I’ve known better when we did our Erasmus experience (I was in Madrid while he was in Salamanca) in Spain, more than 10 years ago (don’t let me think about that!).
He’s a very nice and peculiar guy, his relaxed approach to life makes him very enjoyable and open-minded. I’ve never had the pleasure to travel with him but I am quite sure that he could be a great travelmate!
