What a great place to stay if ur visiting Manhattan!! great ubication(300mts from gran central station), really comfortable and spacious!!! Stephan was a really good host he receive us and gave us the keys in our hand!!! I will trie to stay here again if i visit NYC soon!!!
This was a wonderful place to stay in NYC: clean, spacious, uncluttered, and in a perfect location. I didn't meet Stephan until my final day, but he was extremely attentive and quick to communicate (even for things that I would have known had I paid more attention to his listing notes).
The apartment has three big rooms with high ceilings and lots of light. The kitchen is perfect for cooking, and Stephan and his wife have made sure there isn't anything you'll need if you want to eat in. And if you want to explore the city, you're pretty much in the middle of everything on Manhattan; it's easy to get to subways, hail cabs, or grab a Citibike, if you dare.
As some other reviewers have noted, it can be a bit noisy during the day and early evening both from the street and the other folks in the building (the apartment is on the first floor), but the noise quiets down well before bedtime, and the back bedroom is a nice quiet oasis at any time. The bedroom overlooks an inner courtyard, and I quite enjoyed sitting by the window in the morning with my coffee.
The next time I'm in NY, I will check to see if Stephan's place is available -- I enjoyed my time there that much.
Stephan was a most welcoming and attentive host! He came to personally greet us in the apartment and talk u through everything we needed plus some tips on local bars and shops. His wife was wonderfully helpful and friendly helping us get settled on our immediate arrival too. Communication with Stephan was really responsive and quick and addressed any queries we had straight away which we ver much appreciated. Everything with the apartment was as described only better in real life! This apartment is huge - not only floor space but ceiling height and massive windows. It has a wonderful warm feel and we were able to pretend we're actually New Yorkers for the time of our stay. The details of the apartment such as lead light windows, wooden shutters and the two big marble fireplaces are nothing short of charming and authentic.
The loft was very spacious and clean and in a terrific location. So easy to walk to sights or take public transport. It's in a characterful building with high ceilings and splendid fireplaces.
Something we didn't realise was that it was at street level (in UK a loft means the top of the building) so was quite noisy in the sitting room. Bedroom at the back was nice and quiet though.
Stephan was very pleasant and helpful.
Die Einrichtung des Appartements entsprach den Fotos, die Lage ist gut.
Leider war die Wohnung nicht gereinigt u.a. wurde die Bettwäsche nicht gewechselt.
Wir sind aufgrund dessen nach einer Nacht bereits wieder ausgezogen. Der Kontakt zum Vermieter war freundlich und zuverlässig.
Location was quite good, not far from many attractions. The apartment was large & spacious however the people on the floor above were very noisy with their dog pacing at all times (sounded like they were moving furniture at night!). It was annoying that you had to turn the light in the lounge to have TV or Internet working.
When we arrived the keys were left for us to collect, which was great. We did not meet our host but he was responsive when we had a question like no toilet paper in bathroom when we arrived. The bed was comfortable however, it felt like there was sand in the bed when we pulled back the covers which we had to clean up, when all we wanted was to go straight to sleep after an exhausting day!
The apartment was exactly as shown in the pictures...It was very spacious (not a common thing in Manhattan) and bright...it was great for a one year old, no stairs or dangerous staff. The kitchen was small but good enough for 2 people...
Location was great, close to subway and the neighborhood was beautiful...Stephan and Eva were really helpful they lend us a stroller and an umbrella. They were always willing to help us and provided us with what we needed.
Perfect location. Huge and clean apartement. Stephan and his wife were receptive and nice. The apartement allowed us to fully enjoy our trip!
The apartment looks in reality the same as in the pictures and offers enough space for everything . The apartment is perfectly located and we enjoyed the days in New York very much. In the apartment it is a bit noisy (street noise) , but the bedroom is out to the garden and therefore quiet . Unfortunately, we haven't seen our host personally, but the keys were in the mailbox, so anything worked well.
Stephan's apartment is a wonderful place, which I can highly recommend. Stayed there for 9 days and enjoyed the central location, spacious rooms, quiet bedroom, big bathroom and basically everything. I wil definitely stay at Stephan's place again next time I visit NYC:-)
