Das Apartment war genau wie beschrieben. Mit dem check-in hat auch alles super geklappt. Den Gastgeber haben wir zwar nie kennengelernt aber sein Geschäftspartner war immer hilfreich und hat auf Nachrichten und Telefonate bei Fragen gleich reagiert.
Das Appartement befindet sich in einer super Gegend. Und wir würden es auch beim nächsten Mal wieder buchen.
I never met James or Brad. When I called to inquire about getting the key once we arrived in New York I was told that the maid would be at the apartment to give me the key. I talked to Brad on the telephone on Monday so that he could let me know that he was sending someone to fix the door knob. When we got back to apartment Monday evening the door knob was indeed fixed. The apartment is in a very convenient location. It's close to everything and is in a nice quiet neighborhood. The pictures on the web are very deceiving.The condition of the apartment is very old and neglected. If I had seen this apartment in person I would never have rented it. Wednesday morning we woke up to a man in the apartment. He came in with his pass key in order to fix the broken door knob which he had already fixed on Monday. There is enough dust bunnies under the beds to stuff a mattress. The sofa bed was broken (we had to fix it to be able to use it), the bathroom is moldy, dirty and there are many broken floor tiles. There are many weak spots in the flooring in the back bedroom. There is a very weak spot in the floor in the hall way going to the back bedroom. Very obvious that these are caused by foundation failure. There is a huge draft in the back bedroom under the air conditioner because the hole for the air conditioner was cut too big. They just stuck a piece of sheet rock in front of the hole unsecured and when the wind would blow it would fall over. There were many burnt light bulbs in the light fixtures and no replacement bulbs in the apartment. We had to go out and buy toilet tissue, paper towels and wash cloths because there was none provided. When I spoke to Brad about these things he said he would reimburse me but he has not. He claims to furnish Wi-Fi and cable TV and that only lasted for 2 days and it went off and we never got it back. Called Brad and he was supposed to check on it and he never got back to me on it.
James and Brad were awesome. Super communicative and above and beyond accommodating. The place is unreal with an incredible rooftop and a very spacious top floor apartment right on Wall Street. I had the best New Year's Eve stay there with a close group of friends and they even had a friend drop off eggs and bread and breakfast supplies for the next morning. It was the perfect set up for our group and I am very thankful to have found their luxurious pad. Thank you!!
The maid welcomed us in the apartment at 3pm instead of 2pm so we left the luggage inside the apartment while she finished to clean the apartment.
We met Brad later in the evening who came to bring us the champaign :)
The apartment is well located in a quiet neighbourhood.
The apartment is not really as described, the apartmeny is noisy because of the boiler located below the apartment, there is a hole inside a wall in the room making the room cold in winter.
The beds are not very comfortable because the crossbeams are tinkered.
The bathroom is very small when you have to share it with 6 people.
The kitchen misses a lot of cutlery.
There is no table for 6 people and not enough seats.
Lot of work is needed to refurbish this apartment.
However, the location is perfect.
To make it short, the apartment is quite small to welcome 7 people and not as comfortable as expected and quite expensive for this..
We were disappointed of this one.
The was not as clean as I expected and there was not full access to the building as promised. The television and internet was also down for the first 4 hours. The apartment only had basic TV no cable. The pictures and description was very deceiving. I would not rent this apartment again.
We arrived at the apartment at the time we said we would, but we had to wait 45 minutes in the cold before anyone let us inside. The apartment was very rustic. The furniture was very old. The bathroom tile was dirty and cracked. The one bedroom had no furniture to put a suitcase on.
There is no central heat or air conditioning.
I was very worried for more that a week leading into our visit. No matter how hard I tried it was impossible to reach either James or Brad. When I finally reached Brad the day before I confirmed that our flight was getting in early but I could still not reach him on his cell phone the morning of our arrival. Eventually the reception guy managed to reach Brad and he finally showed up at 12.30pm with the cleaner. Our family was so tired after a long flight from Australia and we then had to wander around the streets until finally we went up around 2.30pm and all waited in a bedroom until the cleaner finished. When she left we were the ones doing all of the drying of the linen in the clothes dryer. No internet for the first two days. This all sounds a bit negative but I suppose we were just tired and the whole check in process was very ordinary.
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt bei James sehr genossen. Mit der Schlüsselübergabe, usw. hat alles super geklappt. Das Appartement war groß und geräumig - und hätte etwas sauberer sein können. Für einen Städtetrip ist es jedoch völlig ausreichend, man ist eh die meiste Zeit unterwegs. Von der Lage her ist die Unterkunft unschlagbar! In nur wenigen Minuten zu Fuß ist man direkt am Times Square und kann fast gesamt Manhattan ohne U-Bahn oder Bus erkunden.
Amazing location. Great host we were suppose to be checking in at 8 pm but our flight got delayed. We reached at this place around 2 am local time. We had a problem while checking but brad pick up a call at 2 am and helped us amazing. If I happen to be in my again near Wall Street . I will stay here for sure.
Convenient location. Great views from the 16th floor. Difficulty firming up arrangements until a few days before arrival. We would stay there again.
