I had a fantastic stay with Chris! He went beyond the call of duty to help us and check us in. The place was very clean and as described. Chris is also very friendly and knowledgeable. I will be telling my friends to stay here!
Chris was a great host - very polite, not at all intrusive, and generous with his kitchen. The apartment is very clean and very conveniently located in a busy area of Harlem, with lots of shops and restaurants, but also very close to the subway for when you'd like to venture to other parts of the city. We stayed with chris for 8 days and enjoyed our time thoroughly. Chris was also very flexible with regard to check-in and check-out times, which made life much easier for us. I would certainly stay at Chis' again!
English review at the end
Mon mari et moi avons longuement hésité avant de publier ce commentaire... car nous aurions voulu gardé cette adresse pour nous =) Mais cela n'aurait pas été fair-play, alors voilà :
Chris nous avait envoyé un itinéraire, ce qui nous a permis d'arriver chez lui en prenant le métro sans encombre. C'était nickel !
Chris est très sympathique, gentil et très calme. Il est de très bon conseil et nous a même donné des idées pour aller à Washington. Nous avons regretté de ne pas avoir passé plus de temps avec lui ( car les visites nous ont pris beaucoup de temps et d'énergie) !
Son appartement est extrêmement propre et bien tenu : très bien meublé et équipé, confortable (en réalité, nous voudrions le même).
Notre chambre était très bien avec tout ce dont on pouvait avoir besoin : un vrai lit avec un bon matelas, 2 types d'oreillers (la recette pour des nuits reposantes), des serviettes moelleuses, 5 ou 6 livres sur NY (dont un sur les sites insolites) ! Nous avons été ravi de profiter d'une salle de bain privée avec baignoire et bien éclairée.
Concernant le voisinage, la rue est très calme, même si l'animation du boulevard MalcolmX est toute proche : on y trouve restaurants, supermarchés, magasins et les métro 2 et 3 vous amènent très vite à Downtown.
L'adresse de Chris risque de rester notre préférée pour longtemps. Un endroit à recommander sans hésitation !
It was really hard for my husband and me to write a review about Chris' appartment... just because we would have wanted to keep secret this address =)
But we must admit that it wouldn't have been fair. So here it is.
Before arriving Chris had sent us a subway itinerary, so we arrived at home without delay : all we had to do was to read the directions. It was perfect !
So Chris has been our first real contact in NYC. He is a very sympathic, quiet and kind person. He gave us great advices and directions especially to go to Washington. And we regretted not spending more time with him (because visiting NYC takes so much time and energy...) !
The appartment is very clean and tidy : very well furnished and equiped, comfortable (if we could have our own appartment, we would like having the same). Our bedroom was nice with everything we needed : good mattress, two kind of pillows (so we had restful nights), fluffy towels and 5 or 6 books about New York ! We were also very happy to have our own bathroom, beautiful and well lighted.
The neighborhood is very quiet. The MalcolmX blvrd is really close and lively, with restaurants (famous Sylvia's), small supermarket and subway : the 2 and 3 lines are very express to downtown.
Chris' home was our first AirBnB experience and may stay the first of our starlist for a long time.
We highly recommend this address !!
Chris hosted us for the better part of a month as we navigated the last stages of purchasing a coop. The apartment is spacious and well-furnished, with excellent kitchen equipment and plenty of fans to keep cool in the summer. Chris was a consummate host for us, offering advice and good conversation but never intrusive or overbearing. He allowed us to extend our stay as the process dragged on for us, which made life much easier as we were starting work/school. The location is ideal for anybody conducting business in Harlem or preferring a less hectic home-base than midtown while visiting. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and it made the wait for our own place much more bearable.
Chris was a fantastic host! I stayed at his place for four nights and couldn't be happier with my my experience. The neighborhood is fantastic and really convenient to most of New York City by subway. The room is exceptionally comfortable and well-kept. Chris gave great advice and directions to get around the city, which was really helpful. When I come back to New York I would definitely stay there again!
I first stayed with Chris for a weekend because I was in the process of finding an apt in Harlem and thought I could finish up quickly. I extended my reservation another 7 days just to cover the "what ifs". He graciously opened his home up to me and was very helpful during my stay. His place is a dream, the elevator opens into his apartment, no necessary interactions with neighbors and easy access to the heart of Harlem.
I enjoyed staying at Chris' place, it's very nice, clean and tidy. Chris was very helpful and he is a great host. You also receive separate bathroom that is a big advantage.
The apartment was extremely clean and nice! It was actually better than the pictures that he listed. The location was excellent, very close to metro and the bus stop to airport. Chris was very helpful and kind! I would definitely recommend!
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Chris à New York. L'appartement est très bien entretenu, la chambre est grande et lumineuse et donne sur une rue calme. La grande surprise fut les toilettes et la salle de bain privés! Chris est un hôte convivial et disponible si besoin ( malgré nos problèmes de langue!!). L'appartement est aussi idéalement situé dans Harlem, à 2 min du métro dans un quartier très sympa et animé.
Bref, nous recommandons vraiment cette adresse!

Chris is a very gentle and nice person who was an excellent host only too willing to help us feel comfortable and at ease in his brilliant flat! he was very respectful with our space and gave us total freedom to come in and out as we pleased.
His flat is excellently located in a very trendy area of Harlem as well as very well connected with the rest of Manhattan. We highly recommend staying with Chris in Harlem, it will definitely make your stay in New York better.
