Love for the arts, meeting new people and traveling.
Very nice apartment in a top area and close to subway. the flat is clean and neat with all necessary appliances. Host was very responsive and available. I highly recommend.
We had a great stay at this lovely apartment. Andrew was very accommodating with our check in and check out times and had some great tips on what to do in the area. The apartment is quite spacious, clean and in a great location. Communication from the hosts was excellent and we would definitely recommend to others and stay here again. Thanks
Our stay was quite enjoyable. Katie's friend Andrew was very gracious, even though we arrived a bit late. The one bedroom apt was comfortable, with a nice sized living room and adequately sized and stocked kitchen. Great location on 78th and York. We highly recommend.
This was my second time using Air B&B and it was a great experience. The apartment was very clean and well organized. The apartment, and neighborhood were just liked the pics. And description was too -- no surprises. The owners were responsive and professional. No problems at all. I look forward to my next trip to NYC and hopefully this apartment will be available.
Katie met us at the appointed time and gave us a run through of the apartment and the building. Staff member Andrew did a great job cleaning and prepping apartment. Bed very comfortable for two. Photos and descriptions very accurate. Laundry in basement a plus.
Building was very well placed in vibrant UES. Everything you need nearby. Scores and scores of restaurants and bars; public library and houses of worship. Short walk to 77th St. subway line one way, and East River promanade the other.
There is a TV and dvd player and many dvds. Used in-house wi-fi to watch my subscribed Netflix and HBO-Go. Only drawback no cable TV for those that may enjoy that. I brought my own HD rabbit ear antenna ($9 Wal Mart) to get the local channels and it worked great.
Katie and Mike very responsible and concerned hosts. Thanks for a great stay.
La nostra vacanza è stata una meraviglia!
L'appartamento si trova in una zona molto tranquilla e piena di ristoranti. Forse la metropolitana più vicina non è così comoda, ma dieci minuti a piedi al mattino si fanno volentieri.
Non abbiamo mai incontrato i ragazzi: ci hanno lasciato le chiavi nella lavanderia vicina, ma Andrew ha sempre risposto ad ogni messaggio o dubbio e ci aveva lasciato una lettera nella quale spiegava tutto!
La casa è pulita, il letto comodissimo e c'è tutto quello che serve!
Unico neo forse i vicini molto rumorosi, ma questo non dipende dai proprietari!
Booking and getting keys etc was all easy. No worries at all.
We only had to go up one flight of stairs, so that was easy.
Apartment is well equiped and tidy.
In a very safe and pleasant part of Manhattan.
Shower Temperature is tricky to adjust
Toilet rank makes noise
There are pros and cons to Mike and Katie's flat. Communication with them prior to arrival was straight to the point, no frills. When we arrived at the flat we were surprised to be met by another person, who explained a couple of things to us in less than three minutes. That's ok. The flat is as described and located in a nice area close to all amenities. It was tidy and relatively clean - the bathroom was clearly not the cleaner's priority however. Generally we felt that noise and cleanliness were the down points on this accommodation. It was cold when we arrived and we used the extra fan heater provided because we found out that the radiator in the bedroom did not work even if it emitted loud banging noise in the pipes keeping us awake every night from 5am in the morning. Noise was also an issue for us because of the neighbors' dogs barking, both in the flat downstairs and upstairs - this is clearly not the owners' fault of course. The flat itself is pleasant and fully fitted with everything you need. If you have a sensitive skin, you might find however that the state of cleanliness could be a problem. Finally, we were supposed to meet the person again at 5pm on the day of departure (it was nice to let us stay after normal checking-out time), but this person did not turn up so we just left the key Inside and left.
The check in and check out formalities were completed smoothly and the hosts were very accommodating of my needs. I loved the location and the feel of the place. Very tastefully furnished. Close to shops and bus stop, with good light in the living area, and a very homely and cozy feeling. The building is well maintained.
