super hôte, très disponible, pleines de bon conseils.
appart sympa, très bien placé, métro a 5 minutes de marche avec 3 lignes disponible pour êtres a grand central, times square ou central parc en 10 minutes.
super marché, diner, chinois et burger a emporter a la sortie du métro.
idéal pour une famille avec 1 ou 2 enfants ou pour une bande de jeune jusqu'à 6 (website hidden) pas hésiter a aller au bout de la rue pour admirer un magnifique couché de soleil sur Manhattan.
First of all, the apartment was awesome and clean. The heat was perfect. Everything you need is there ! The kitchen is fully complete. Eveything is there to cook a nice meal! But, most of all, Olivia is a wonderful host. We arrived in NYC around midnight, and she was waiting for us. She gave us the most information we need. She's always available and happy to help if you need anything ! Seriously, I will book again! Thank you Olivia! You are awesome :-)
I stayed with my wife and 2 adolescents children at Beata's place for almost one week, and it was quite a good experience to have her as our host. To begin with, I was concerned about a comment regarding the appt heater from a previous guest. I asked her about it before renting the place, and her repply proved to be right: the heater worked just fine and we have no issues. Just upon our arrival we pointed Beata out a few and minor issues about the appartment furniture and she reacted immediately for working them out and buying what was missing for making it a better place. Beata has a great attitude and is eager to be a good host, she is openes to listen to comments and do whatever necessary for enjoying your time at her apartment. The place is comfortable, though and though the neighboourhood is not that charming to me, it is quite convenient having 2 metro and train stations within 5 minutes walking distance. Thank you Beata!
Our host was awesome!! She was very helpful and welcoming! The location was perfect as well as the apartment! Super close to the subway but far enough from the crazy city to enjoy your stay! The apartment was stocked and very clean! I would highly recommend staying here to anyone wanting to visit NYC!
Our family of 5 spent 1 week over new year in NYC in this apartment. It is a small, two room apartment, with a kitchen and bathroom. Everything is as described in the pictures presented by Beata.
As she says, it is good for 4-5 persons, but not more than that. The location in Long Island City is truly fantastic. It is a short walk (5-8 minutes) to the closest Subway station, and you are transported to the center of Manhattan in a few minutes. Grand Central Station or Times Square are less than 10 minutes away!
We never got the privilege to meet Beata in person, since she was in Europe over the Christmas holiday.
But, even so, she kept in touch over SMS and e-mail, and helped us to get in touch with the person who had the keys and could let us in.
During our stay Beata kept in touch and wanted to make sure we were OK. Her concern for our wellbeing is very genuine and I can only give her the highest compliments.
The only negative thing we experienced during our stay was that the temperature in the apartment got cold during a few days. According to Beata this is not usual. Normally the temperature is high during the winter. She said that the heating system in the building recently has been updated, and normally this is not a problem.
Also, the TV sometimes had problems to get a stable picture. The antenna located on a shelf by the TV was very sensitive and was sometimes hard to position correctly in order to get a picture.
All in all, I gladly recommend both Beata and her apartment to anyone who wants to spend some time in New York.
We found the apartment fantastic. Great location minutes from the subway and minutes from fantastic restaurants on Vernon Boulevard. Very clean with plenty towels and toiletries. Lots of hot water and it's also lovely and warm. It is a very spacious apartment with lots of space. Beata was very warm and welcoming and really made us feel at home.
Had a great visit to NYC. Olivia's place is great and as described. She was super helpful and willing to help this family of 5 on there first trip to NYC. Apartment was minutes to subway and downtown NYC. She responded to all my questions with great advice. Perfect spot for couple or family. Would highly recommend working with Olivia for your trip to NYC.
CHECK IN: We messaged Beata from Penn Station when we were on our way to the apartment. She met us at the apartment right away, checked us in, and gave us a quick tour of the apt and some general information about the area/NYC - things to do, how to get around, etc.
ACCOMMODATIONS: The apt was as advertised - it was clean and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable - dishes, eating/cooking utensils, toiletries, etc. The building was quiet. For some people who have never lived in an apt (or have forgotten what it's like), you will occasionally hear someone walking around above you but this is no different than someone walking around above you in a house.
THE NEIGHBORHOOD: The apt is located within a few blocks of multiple subway stations. It was SO easy to get anywhere we wanted to go! From the time we left the apt we were in Times Square in 15 minutes! It was nice to leave Manhattan and head back to Long Island City where is was quieter and less busy.
HOST INTERACTION: Beata was available anytime we had questions. Because there was no one was checking in the same day we checked out, she was flexible with the checkout time which was great because our flight left a bit later.
SUMMARY: This was our first NYC Airbnb experience and we couldn't have asked for anything more. I would definitely recommended this apt/host!
We return from New York and can only you advisor this destination... A trip, an extraordinary discovery... All start with the warm welcome and with the smile of beata , we feel immediately as at the house... The apartment is perfectly well located with the subway at 5 minutes by foot and 2 stations of the center of Manhattan... with an American dinner beside the station of subway to taste to the pleasures of the bagel and other local gluttonies for the breakfast... The airport JFK is also very easy of access since this place with the subway E and air train.... In summary you are as well placed than at the heart of Manhattan but a clearly less high rate... And especially, Beata is always available in case of problem... I recommend you this place... If one day we return to New York we will return to live here...
We had a lovely stay here. Warm welcome when we arrived with lots of advice on where to go and the surrounding area. The flat was nice and spacious for the 3 of us. Loved the area and the walking distance to some fab bars and restaurants that we didn't venture into Manhattan on the evening. Train is a short walk away, would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
Beata was a wonderful guest. She came down with her puppy and they left the place in immaculate shape. It is always nice to deal with people who are pleasant, quick to communicate and considerate.
If you are going to New York you should definitely stay in Beata's place. She is very nice and helpful person so I am sure she will give you hundreds of tips if it comes to places worth visiting , the way of transportation and many other things. She is brilliant in that! She can help you in planning your great New York City experience in a blink of an eye. Honestly!!! :) Beata's apartment is very cosy and nice. It has really good location. It's close to Manhattan and there is this great view of the city (by the water) near by. Her apartment is also well stocked in useful things and appliances. I really enjoyed my stay in her place and would definitely do that again and again if I would only be around!!
Beata is one of my oldest friends and former roommates....
She is the sort of person that no matter what, will go out of her way to make sure you are happy and would do backflips to help a friend. I'm sure her AirBnB guests will be no exception..
She is the sort of friend that will drive you to the airport at 4am even if means not sleeping a wink before a long day at work..... likewise she would sit in traffic at rush hour to pick you up just so you had a friendly face to greet you. Whenever I'm sick, she is the first person to come rushing...
I have two older dogs that require special care. There are only two people on the planet I will entrust them to when I go away : the Vet and Beata. If I had a child, I would entrust her with his or her care.... I'm not quite sure how else I can can reinforce her trustworthiness and dependability but I guess you can come after me with water balloons and paintball guns if there is a problem. :D
Beata's apartment is adorable and immaculate and is located in one of the most up and coming areas of the city. It is minimal, always clean, and most importantly carries the same happy, love-filled energy that Beata herself exudes.
A block or so away you have PS1- a part of the Museum of Modern Art and home to cutting edge art exhibits and fun rooftop parties in the summer time. A couple blocks further and you have the waterfront where you can relax in the park and soak up the fun and the most beautiful panoramic view of the NYC skyline.
If you're not from NYC and don't know the city well, don't be discouraged by the fact that this apartment is not in Manhattan itself. Its a super quick quick subway ride or taxi ride over the bridge from Manhattan.
Wishing you a wonderful trip to NYC... stay at Beata's! :D
