In March, we spent 4 days in this special spot with our daughter and son in law. It was a perfect base for exploring Manhattan. The apartment was very clean, well appointed and comfortable. The views, particularly of the Empire State Building colours at night, were outstanding. And John's recommendations for food and activities were great. We all loved it here.
Staying at John's place was a pure pleasure! The view is breathtaking (even better than the pictures) and the apartment is so cosy and comfortable. And our host, John, did everything to make us feel like at home. I will definitively recommend it to anyone who wants to go in New York.
I dare you to find a better place to stay in New York!!
This was our first airbnb experience and to be perfectly honest we were pretty nervous about how it would all go. We will now be using airbnb wherever we can around the world!
Stayed here for a week over Christmas 2013. Put simply, it was the best week of mine, my partner and my friends lives. Getting engaged in New York had a lot to do with it, but it would not have been the same if it were not for this apartment!!
4 of us stayed here. Plenty of room. ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING views over the city. Very comfortable beds. All your washing, drying and dishwashing needs. Huge TV with cable. Friendly concierge who are more then happy to help and much much more!
Most of all John and Jean were fantastic to deal with. No hassles at all! Made it extra special for us by giving us an arrival gift. But most of all, putting in a Christmas tree which really excited all of us, and made it feel like a real Christmas in New York!!
I highly recommend this to anyone! I have already told a lot of our friends and will continue to do so! We are also praying that it is still available for rent when we plan our next trip to New York.
Thanks again John & Jean, you made or Christmas and our holiday!
Great apartment and great location. Owner is easy to deal and with and very flexible. Will return.
My partner and I came to New York City for a 5-day break and a friend suggested we try Airbnb. I'm so pleased we followed their advice! This apartment was simply amazing and John, the host, could not have been better.
John was resident in the apartment while we were staying, but was very welcoming and at no time were we left feeling awkward being in somebody else's home. In fact, we often had the apartment to ourselves, as John was out at work or away. On the occasions we did see him, he was very friendly and helpful.
The view from the bedroom was simply incredible! You could not wish for better views of New York City. And the location of the apartment is also brilliant, just two blocks from Times Square and easy walking distance from many of the shops, bars, restaurants, etc. Central Park and both main NYC rail stations were walkable as well.
All in all, for the price you pay compared to a hotel, an absolute bargain. Highly recommended!
L'appartement de John et Jean-François est incontestablement parmi ce qui peut se trouver de mieux à New-York !
La vue sur tout Manhattan du 48eme étage au travers de vitres du sol au plafond est grandiose et le mobilier design est bien adapté aux lieux.
Les deux chambres avec chacune une salle de bain spacieuse bénéficient également d'une vue superbe.
Cet appartement a fait notre bonheur durant une semaine.
La communication avec John a été très facile et chaleureuse et c'est certainement chez eux que nous séjournerons si nous retournons à New-York !
Merci John et Jean-François
The apartment of John and Jean-François is certainly among the best you can find in New-York !
The view from the 48 th floor throughout Manhattan trough floor to ceiling windows is breathtaking and the design furniture is perfectly suited.
The two bedrooms and two bathrooms are also spacious and have great views .
In short : This apprtment made our happiness for a week !
Communication with John was easy and warm and it is certain that it is there and not elsewhere we go if we return to NYC .
Thank you John & Jean-François
John was a fantastic host. I had cause to contact him a couple of times leading up to our stay and he was always prompt, courteous and helpful in response to my queries. He was very obliging in allowing us to use his address as a mailing address prior to our arrival in the USA for Yankee tickets we had ordered online (but were unable to have posted to Australia). He advised me when they arrived and even assisted in making sure they were the tickets that we ordered.
The apartment is exactly as described and depicted on Airbnb. It is in a fantastic location with Times Square, excellent restaurants, Broadway and the Port Authority subway station within very easy walking distance.
As depicted in the Airbnb photos, the apartment has amazing views of the city and I spent a number of hours simply staring out the window admiring the concrete jungle. The apartment was very well equipped to ensure you felt right at home.
We felt very comfortable in the apartment block and the surrounding areas. There are people everywhere and I observed no issues from a safety and/or security end. The apartment block is manned 24/7 by concierge staff who were very helpful from helping with bags, hailing a cab, to providing advice on where to eat.
Hopefully, you can deduce from the tone of my feedback, Dianne and I really enjoyed our stay at John's. When we return to NYC we will definitely be trying to secure the apartment again. Thanks again to John for making the stay memorable.
For those that read this, all the best with your travels to NYC.
I've had my share of views from hotels, motels, Bed and Breakfasts, Inns, etc. from around the world. John's view eclipsed them all. Beautiful accommodations as well perfect location for the show goer. You can throw a rock and hit Time Square. We did, as guests, have a small mishap with our house keys and John handled it with professional understanding. The buildings front desk and security attendants were always kind and helpful. All four of us had a great time and slept comfortably. Would totally recommend staying here. We would do it all again.
We had a great stay in NYC. John McCool was super responsive to our questions and helped ensure everything went smoothly. He even went out of his way to make sure that on our departure day we had good logistics for storing our luggage until our pickup for the plane trip home.
The apartment was super clean, very comfortable, and had great views of Manhattan as well as the lower Hudson river.
The location worked out great, too - very close to restaurant row, Times Square, and the subway lines. We jogged each day into Central Park as well.
The building is very new, and the other tenants all seemed very nice.
A very nice place to stay!
John it was great, he was a really helpful, kind and polite!
His apartment is fantastic, bright, central, clean, luxurious, breathtaking for its beauty!!!
We have a great time, and as soon as I return to NY I hope to stay here again!
Friendly, responsible and easy-going guest, left the apartment very clean, good communication. Highly recommended!
John was a great guest! We would happily accommodate him in the future.
John was a great houseguest - he responded to emails right away, left the place as clean as he found it, and even left flowers. Would definitely host again.
John was really nice and friendly and took good care of our flat. Thanks for your stay and hope to see you again when you're next in london.
