My 13 year old daughter & I stayed here for 4 days and it was just perfect for us! Carolina welcomed us at the building and invited us to use the kitchen to cook if we liked. The room is a very comfortable size, almost like a small studio. The neighborhood is chill and the apt is on a quiet street. The apt is actually at the very top (15th floor, elevator + 1 flight of stairs), so you hardly hear any traffic noise but the occasional sirens. The best way to travel downtown is by taking the C train from 163rd (really 161st). Go further uptown to find Latino restaurants and stores. Knowing that we were coming back to a comfortable room really made us feel more at home after such long days in NYC.
Oh ya, ignore (website hidden)maps' directions to get back by taking an express train to 155th. We did so and found ourselves at 11pm in a really sketchy area, sticking out like lost sheep. The walk to the apt would have included climbing steep stairs through a hill in dark & desolate tunnels, at night. No thanks. Fortunately we went to an open liquor store where the owners (a husband & wife) called a taxi friend of theirs to give us a ride because they said those tunnels were really unsafe at this time. But that was a (website hidden)maps mistake. So stick to the 163rd stop!
We would definitely stay here again as it was very comfortable to come back to and stretch out after hoofing it on our feet all day. If you need a fluffy mattress, this might not be your cup of tea. But the firm mattress worked for us just fine. If you want an economical place to come back to, with a desk for a laptop, and couch to sit & relax on, this is your deal! Thanks Carolina! Your place completed our trip to NYC!!
We loved staying at Carlolina's apartment. We had a huge room and an AWESOME view.
We didn't have any problems with her but didn't see her aswell. But if you are in the city walking around the whole day like every visitor there is no big chance to meet her ;)
We would totally appreciate her!
Hey Carolina ! It was very nice to meet you and to have a room in your apartment ! We really hope to see you soon ! :)
For the next renters, Carolina is very accomodating. If you need something, just ask her and she'll help you. Remember that she's an artist so expect the decoration to be interesting to watch!
Again, thanks a lot for your reception and if one day we decide to come back to New York, be sure we'll make you a call!
Carolina was an excellent host. She had friends staying during the week who were very nice and friendly. The apartment has everything one would need and is conveniently located near the subway if you need to get downtown. Recommended for young travelers like myself.
We had real good time in Carolina's room which is large and with lots of cupboards. The view however is not realy the one you have on the pictures. The area around the building was ok and safe as we used to come back late around midnight everyday. Easy going to down town. Carolina was here but we only saw her short time because we always came back late. She was friendly and gave us advises to visit places in town. Thank you Carolina.
Carolina's apartment is cabinet of all sorts of curious things to see, paintings and pictures on the walls and little details you surely like! In addition, the view from the bedroom is breathtaking with the beautiful skyline, especially at night when all the lights are on! I would recommend this place because it is absolutely worth the money! Thanks Carolina!
The 5 nights spent at Carolina’s flat were really great!! Carolina is friendly and also pleased to give some advices on what to do in NY. Her flat is incredible, with full of ‘art’ stuff ;-) I would say : ‘A place full of life’. Also the neighbors were very kind with us.
We had a room for ourselves with a comfortable bed. The flat is well located, near the subway and it takes only 30 minutes to reach the center. We recommend the room and the view from is building on NY is incredible !!
Carolina is very nice and helpful.
The room is clean and quiet with a great view of NYC.
The location is very convenient : you just have to walk for 5 minutes to take the subway.
We definitely recommend the room.
Carolina's place was very homely and welcoming. We struggled a little to get in touch with her at the beginning but from there it was smooth sailing at very easy. Close to the subway and only about 10 minutes from mid manhattan.
Very happy relaxed good time.
Would recommend for sure.
We stayed at Carolina´s place for a week. It has a subway and bus stations near by, so it is well placed, at a 20 min ride to downtown. The apartment is alright. Enough space for a coulpe. We could use the kitchen freely. I recommend staying here
Carolinas's place is beautiful and clean.
She is the nicest hostess.
Carolina will give you the best tips of what is going on and what to see in NY, it is not a coincidence the TV follows her around, haha
I highly recommend staying in Carolina's place. She is very helpful and informative host. The Room have a fantastic view to all Manhattan from Central Park, Empire state etc. Carolina had made up an incredibly comfortable bed, Nice and clean.
Plus all reference to see NYC area, is like having a personal guide!
I live in Carolina's apartment for 3 months and had an awesome time! The room was big, the atmosphere real nice, and Carolina makes a great roommate! If you need someone to vouch for her, email me at (email hidden), and I'll tell you that you should rent her room!
I love this apartment!!!! the view of the city is amazing!!!!.
