Karens place was very nice. The bed was comfortable and they were very fast in answering any questions I had or if any issues came up. The space of the apartment is quite large in comparison to other places I've stayed in New York. The area the place is in is very cute to walk through (also very close to central park and one of my favorite bridges) and is very close to two trains making a commute to anywhere very easy. Thank you Karen for a great time!
Karen and Ofer were amazing hosts - their apartment was immaculate, they were really welcoming and always available via phone/text, and the building was exceptional (and in the heart of UWS).
One of the best stays ever. The location is perfect for city siting, shopping, cultural activities. Only 3 minutes and you are near the metro station. I highly recommend this apartment to everybody!
Thanks to Karen and this relaxing and cozy apartment, I really enjoyed my stay in a great Upper West Side Location. The apartment was well equipped for this cold winter, but I imagine its natural light in Spring must be sublime. I really appreciated Karen's hospitality and the included amenities.
Great stay. The location is fantastic. A five minute walk from Central Park and Whole Foods, plus a number of train lines close to the apartment. The place itself is perfect for an NYC visit. Clean, way more spacious than a hotel room and with way more amenities. The hosts, Karen and Ofer couldn't have been more helpful and they've thought of everything so that you don't have to.
The studio was picture perfect! Very clean, well equipped and in a great location near lots of restaurants, shops, subway, Central Park and best of all a safe neighborhood. We were met by Ofer who was not only friendly but very helpful. Gave us lots of great advice from subway directions to the best dry-cleaner to use in the neighborhood. I highly recommend this studio or any apartment that Karen and Ofer rent. Very nice, honest people! Thank you and we look forward to working with you again soon!
My husband, I and kids have been stayed at the Karen's apartment for 2 months. This was our first experince of using airbnb and we were lucky to find Karen and Ofer. I want to stress several points.
First, Karen and Ofer both are great hosts-were extremelly helpful, delicate, kind, professional, easy-to-communicate with, and it was a real pleasure to deal with them. They react fast to discuss and solve any questions.
Second, I want to underline that we had no issues with anything inside the apartment or building during our stay- everything worked properly.
Third, as a mom of 2 kids (3,5 years and newborn) I found everything extremelly equiped in the apartment- furniture, technics, kitchen (all possible things you might even think about) which made my day-to-day life in the apartment easy and no stressful.
Fourth, location!!! Location is so great that you can't imaging. You are in the center of life, including central park for kids, skate rings, toys shops, theatres, shopping, restaurants and night life. Also have all subway lines available by walking distance which allows to be anywhere within the shortest time.
I know that will remember the time I spent at this apartment with my family with positive only. And of course will stay again with pleasure.
Karen and Ofer were great hosts! They were attentive, both before and during my stay and willing to provide insight into the area. The apartment itself is absolutely stellar! They put a lot of attention into the little things that we forget we need, as travelers, until we arrive. Included was iron/board, all kitchen utensils, EXTRA towels and linens, and coffee. The neighborhood is perfect with easy access to the subway.
Studio looks just like on the photos. Very well equipped, even though I stayed for 4 months, there was practically nothing I had to buy for washing, cleaning, etc. I especially liked the modern kitchen and the great collection of cooking utensils. The big TV with both Netflix and Amazon Instant Video is awesome, and the extra storage room/closet is very convenient. The building has a fully equipped gym in the basement, as well as a laundry room, which were both perfect to use. Definitely check out the rooftop!
The location of the building is probably the best feature: Just 2 min to the Subway (1,2,3) station, and from there only 7 min to Times Square, 4 min to Columbia University, etc. The neighborhood is safe and rather quiet, and there are plenty of restaurants, supermarkets, etc. The only thing about the apartment that got a bit annoying over time was the fact that it is on the second floor, which is why it is rather dark inside all day and the ventilation system outside is in front of the window. However, I have seen other apartments of friends at similar prices and I cannot imagine that you can find anything better for that price in Manhattan, especially not with such a nice modern interior. And if you're mainly there for sightseeing, it won't bother you anyway.
Great place. Awesome location to the subway (1,2,3). Easy access to great food. Awesome gym and laundry room downstairs in building. Bed was super comfy. We definitely recommend staying here.
Karen and Ofer just left the unit and it was a pleasure to deal with them. The apartment was left in very good condition and i hope they will choose this address for the next vacation in South Beach.
I love Keren & Ofer's place and they are both wonderful hosts and make your jurney a wonderful experience. They are very kind and make you feel like home.
I have known Karen for 5 years...she is married to a friend I have known for 22 years. I know here family and they are all very friendly, giving. Karen's husband was in the hospitality industry so they really understand the nuts and bolts of making travelers feel welcome. So.....that's my formal appraisal......but in short, Karen is so good natured, sweet, smart, responsible and fun, I adore her. I can't think of anyone who could make a guest feel more welcome. :-)
