Me and my friend had two weeks stay in Xena's place and it's amazing! The location is easy to get to anywhere in Manhattan, you can get everything you want in five minutes: restaurants, shops, walking distance to Time Sq. and Central Park, and the nearby Columbus Circle station is a great subway conjunction that can take us to anywhere in the city. The neighborhood is full of vitality in daytime and safe in nighttime with 24 hours security doorman. The apartment is clean and arty and had everything we need. Xena is a wonderful host! Though we didn't meet her in person during our stay but she arranged all check- in and housing details for us, which is amazing! Xena is not just thoughtful but also attend our questions with instant response, despite that we rarely had questions upon lodging because Xena almost got everything settled!
We enjoyed a wonderful vacation in NYC in Xena's fabulous apartment and will def come back! Highly recommend!!
Although we could not meet Xena because she was working, our experience was wonderful. When arriving, we got the keys from the reception and Xena had left us some tips in the appartment (where to find a bakery, good restaurant in the neighbourhood ...)
The appartment is in a very nice location, close to Central Park, Columbus Circle and not that far from Time Square; but also relatively quiet and allows you to rest at night after a buisy day in Manhattan.
We strongly recommend this appartment if you want to enjoy the best of the City.
Good host who provided good local information for restaurants, shops etc. A lovely apartment with fantastic view over central park and lively location.
Looking down the park from the balcony was great.
Nous revenons de 10 jours de New York dans le superbe appartement de Xena. L'emplacement est génial, on ne pouvait pas rêver mieux, idéal pour visiter à pied (10 min à pied de Times Square et 5 min de Central Park), pour 3 lignes de métro à proximité. Je le conseille vivement pour tous ceux qui veulent vivre au rythme de New York!
I chose this location based on proximity to Yale School of Medicine where I was attending a meeting. The apartment building is a short walk to the medical school, clean, with a kitchen, bathroom, and balcony. The furnishings, a kitchen table and four wooden chairs, plus one camp stool, and the air bed, were basic but functional. No problems obtaining the key from security. Xena arrived briefly on the afternoon of the first day to pick up a few things and then gave me privacy for the rest of the weekend.
It was such a delight to stay in Xena's apartment. It is a spacious living space in a convenient location between the main Yale campus and the medical campus. Xena was a most delightful host and did everything possible to ensure that my stay was the best possible. Thank you, Xena!
Really nice flat. The bed was actually a double air bed but very comfortable still none the less. Only saw Xena briefly when I moved in which was fine as I was busy. She gave privacy to the entire lounge kitchen and balcony so basically was my own flat. Seemed like a really nice host. Highly recommended
I stayed in Xena's apartment for six weeks in July and August 2013. The apartment's location is as described, right in the middle of the Latin Quarter and a short walk from the Pantheon, Notre Dame cathedral, the Jardin du Luxembourg, and any number of restaurants. The metro is easily accessible two blocks away. The apartment seems quite spacious for Paris, and the windows open into an internal courtyard that is significantly cooler than the outside in the summer. Xena was a wonderful host, and was very accommodating in helping to resolve a small issue that arose during my stay. I would recommend her without hesitation.
The house was very clean and Xena was very cordial. The view from her house is amazing. The only problems I had related to consistency of internet and parking. However, she did inform me that parking would be an issue. I do not have any problem in recommending Xena's apartment to anyone.
Xena was a wonderful host. She was gracious enough to take us in when our original host cancelled the afternoon before we were to arrive! We had tons of privacy and loved the use of the kitchen. Xena was kind and professional in all of her communications. She's a great host - check it out and enjoy your stay!
Xena and her partner were very polite and kind guests. Communication with them was easy and quick at all times and they left my place very tidy and clean. I would absolutely recommend them as great guests! Always feel welcome in Edinburgh!
It was a pleasure having Xena at our place, she is very kind, nice and calm person. Highly recommandable.
Very Gentle And clean. Hope to See you soon. Greetings
