This was our first Airbnb experience, so I picked this place both for its location and because John seemed to have a reliable history. He was quick to respond to my texts ahead of time which was very reassuring. He met us at the apartment when we arrived and made sure we were settled. This apartment is as pictured: spare but nice. The building lacked any glamour, but I certainly appreciated how clean the apartment was. The rooms are small, but the ceiling is high. We were 2 adults and three teens, they were all in the living room together; I agree with an earlier reviewer that it was almost too small, but we managed just fine. The terrace was great. The location was fantastic, halfway between two subway lines (not on the same block as in the description, but close) and with some great restaurants nearby. It was quiet at night, and felt safe when we were walking home in the middle of the night.
The reservation was canceled 25 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Nice apartment in a fantastic location. Would recommend it. Good host - 1 minor problem was promptly sorted out.
John ist ein super Gastgeber. Er antwortet sofort auf Fragen und ist sehr hilfsbereit. Die Wohnung ist für Manhattan-Verhältnisse geräumig, sauber und gut eingerichtet. Das Schlafzimmer ist gegen den Innenhof gerichtet und erlaubt einen ruhigen, erholsamen Schlaf in einem wunderbar bequemen Bett. Gute Leselampen auf beiden Seiten des Bettes sind praktisch. Die Wohnung bietet viel Stauraum für Kleider und Gepäck. Im eher alten und kleinen Bad ist die flexible Brause an einem Schlauch positiv zu erwähnen, findet man in den USA doch häufig viel zu hoch und fix montierte kleine Brauseköpfe, für uns Europäer ein Unding. Die Lage der Wohnung ist perfekt und das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis stimmt.
The apartment was nice and clean and the location was good.
The first bedroom window was not sound proof, so it was noisy and it was difficult to sleep there. Also, the bedroom has a radiator which was making a loud noise all night which made impossible to sleep there. The Netflix was a nice addition, but the internet worked only 1/2 of the time. John was very nice and polite and tried to resolved all these issues for us.
La localización del apartamento es perfecta. Cerca de una gran estación de metro con muchas lineas y al lado de barrios con buen ambiente, servicios, restaurantes y tiendas.
El apartamento es tal como se ve en las fotografías, todo muy nuevo y limpio. Perfecto. Los únicos inconvenientes vinieron por el ruido de la nevera, que excedía bastante de lo normal, y el de la calefacción.
En cuanto al anfitrión fue correcto. Nos esperaba en casa para darnos las llaves y cuando tuvimos un problema con el wifi lo solucionó (aunque estuvimos dos días sin él lo que nos ocasionó algún inconveniente).
En general mi valoración es muy positiva y cuando vuelva a Nueva York volveré a tener en cuenta este apartamento.
Nous avons passé 12 jours dans l'appartement de John. Tout s'est bien passé. L'appartement est agréable et bien équipé (il y a même la buanderie à la cave) et surtout vraiment bien situé, près du métro , près de toutes sortes de commerces et pas loin de central Park. John est joignable et disponible .
Une bonne expérience.
John is very nice, and the place where the apartment is situated is practise ( near central park and subway ). You will have everything near on this quarter . Moreover, it´s very easy to recover the keys!
The apartment was nice, although a bit dirtier than it looks in the pics (seeing how they look perfect). The bedroom needs to be repainted and cleaned a bit more thoroughly, but otherwise the stay was nice! John was easy to get into contact with and very helpful. Location is a block from central park and two subway lines and on the same street as a bus stop; not far from the natural history museum, and close to great shops and restaurants. The stairs up to the apartment are nearly medieval so watch out!
We were very comfortable in John's apartment. It was great base for exploring New York. The location in West village is terrific with easy access to the subway. The apartment is freshly equipped and well looked after and it is at the back of the building so it is very quiet. There were 4 of us for some of our stay and we didn't feel crowded. John was easy to contact. The weather was very cold when we were there but the apartment was a warm haven to come back to each day. We didn't want to leave.
John and his friends were great guests. We managed to set up a last minute booking with complete ease. We'd welcome them back anytime,
Good guest. Very easy to deal with and very easy on the apartment. A totally laid-back guy who is interesting. Really a model guest. If you are a Host you will have an easy time with him. Definitely recommended.
