I'm from Panama , I like to surf and snowboard
The best about the apartment was the Host. we were only in NYC for three days and Gonzalo was very flexible with the check in and check out. The apartment was cute and clean and just right by the metro. Check out the Vietnamese restaurant around the corner, they do delivery if you are to tired to dine out or to cook
Appartement bien placé, a 50m du metro. L'acces commun est sale, mais l'appartement est tres propre, spatieux et correspond à la photo. Gonzalo a rapidement repondu a nos questions. Il est très cool et sympathique. Quelques details à améliorer mais nous recommandons pour le bon rapport qualité-prix.
They say there are 3 things you got to know about real estate: location, location, location. Sticking to that principle you can't go wrong with Gonzalo's appartment. Whole LES, Chinatown, Bowery are in walking distance and if you want to go further uptown/downtown or just across the bridge to Brooklyn: you got the subway station less 10 min walk away. As for the appartment itself its tiny but easily accomdated 3 guys, it is appropriately equipped and was cleaned upon our arrival. Gonazlo as a host is for sure worth best recomendation. He is a cool guy, liberal in terms of check-in/check-out, easy to reach and informative.
We stayed here for a weekend and really enjoyed getting to know the neighborhood and its proximity to others. It's a great location that offers a lot.
The apartment itself was exactly what others have been saying - no frills and to the point. The bed wasn't the most comfortable, and if that were changed, I would probably seek out to stay here again. If you are a part of a couple, I would fully recommend taking the couch futon pad and putting that over the bed to help the firmness of the actual bed. The building was easy to find and it's super close to the Subway, Grand was like a 1/2 block away and Canal was only a 7-10 minute walk with lots to look at to keep you entertained. The only other thing worth noting about the building is that there are a lot of resident smokers in the building, so you can't really escape the smell.
Gonzalo was really great and very communicative. While we did not meet him during our stay, he was quick to respond whenever we had issues or questions. We were also travelling during one of the many Winter storms of the year, and he was understanding and patient.
My wife and I had a nice stay. The apartment was clean. The location was excellent - the B-D line was a block or so from us. The shower was good. Gonzalo brought us a floor mat for the bathroom when I told him it was a bit slippery when wet. The refrigerator and microwave were very useful for us. The bed was comfortable and the apartment temperature was good for us - just slightly cool. There was a space heater that we did not need. There was a lot of open space in the apartment - not cramped at all. We used the WiFi alot and it helped us greatly with arrangements. No TV and 3 flights of stairs to climb, but that was no problem for us. Nice grocery and bakery a half block away. We would definitely stay here again. Gonzalo was quick to respond to the email or two that I sent to him.
We actually stayed at Gonzalo's SOHO studio because the Chinatown apartment has a water leak that was being fixed. Aside from the apartment, Gonzalo was a responsive host and check-in/out was smooth.
The reservation was canceled 15 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We stayed a week at the very beginning of February.
The apartment is small but the stay has been excellent and comfortable (everything was clean, the heating worked perfectly,...)
We were 3 which is a good number for the size of the apartment. The main bedroom is nice for 2 and the other is good for 1.
The location is perfect near a subway station connecting quickly all the good spots of Manhattan.
Gonzalo made quick and perfect answers, very reliable. No problem concerning the key pickup and dropoff.
As my first Airbnb, I couldn't ask for a better experience than I had with Gonzalo's place. The location of this studio is perfect! Meeting him to get the keys straight from the airport was extremely easy and quick. I love this studio, I will definitely stay here again. Thanks, Gonzalo!
Quick and easy process. Stayed for one night, Gonzalo met with us and dropped off the keys. I didn't see him for the rest of the trip, but the place was clean and spacious enough for 4 people.
I highly recommend Gonzalo's apartment. The place is nicely decorated in the modern style, warm, cozy, well appointed, accessible and a short walk to shops, restaurants, work, transport - yet peaceful during the night. The location was PERFECT and CONVENIENT!
Gonzalo is a very honest individual and great host! You will have no problems if you rent an apartment from him or to him.
Gonzalo is a really nice and honest person. I have know him for a long time strongly recommend him as a host as well as a visitor to anyone's apt! I am sure he will take care of you if you stay at his wonderful apt in New York City.
