We met Ji at check-in. She was very helpful, and the apartment was clean and well-equipped. The apartment is rather crammed with the owner's personal property and lacks comfortable seating in the living room. However, the major problem that we had was that Paul showed up unannounced at 9PM on Christmas Eve with several garbage bags full of Ji's belongings. He insisted on dropping these items off and barged into the apartment and deposited the bags in the bedroom closet on top of our shoes. He then said he would return with more in 10 minutes. We refused to let Paul back in when he returned, pointing out that his behavior on Christmas Eve was at best impolite and at worst downright appalling. After he left, we no longer felt safe and decided to move to another apartment. Airbnb was very accommodating. We spoke to Ji who was very apologetic and immediately offered a credit for the nights not stayed. We moved out on Christmas Day. Ji informed us that she and Paul are separating. Therefore, we cannot recommend staying at this apartment until Paul is no longer one of the hosts.
Not to repeat the usual remarks, let's quickly recap the pros: locations is good and close to a subway station, fairways is within short reach, a diner is directly in front of the building and has decent food. UES is nice and safe, walking distance to CP. THe apartment is fully equipped, is has lots of the small things from shampoo to blender and a gas stoves. It could be a little bit cleaner but it was still alright. The walk-up to the roof provides an awesome view that competes with Rockefeller & Co. The hosts themselves are very uncomplicated, polite and relaible and always helpful in providing hints. Response time was always astosnishing. All in all, a clear recommendation and next time in the city we will consider this place again. Enjoy!!
Comfortable apartment with a great view. safe and quiet neighbourhood. No complaints about the apartment or the way it was left. Everything was clean and tidy. Unfortunately i had to encounter the unexpected presence of a stranger in the apartment when we came back on Saturday night. The attitude and after care of the owners was really poor and disappointing. Therefore i would not recommend using their facilities. When you spend a considerable amount of money this is a big mistake you would expect some proper apologies and compensation for. The opposite was the case.. Not the way you would like to be treated as a customer, and very uncomfortable to be invaded in your privacy like that.
This was my first experience using airbnb and Paul and Ji made it an easy and very enjoyable one. Firstly, after messaging them on airbnb, I received a response in a short period of time and from that point on everything else was easy.
Firstly, the best feature of the apartment is the great view that available from both the living room and the bedroom. Waking up to the sunrise coming in through the window was definitely one of the highlights of staying at the apartment and the view over the city never got old.
Paul and Ji's place was kept very very clean and was fully equipped with everything we needed. Ji was there to greet us when we first arrived and graciously welcomed us into her home. She also spend some time with us to tell us about attractions and information regarding shows and tickets.
The location of the apartment is excellent as well since it is walking distance to Central Park and there are many great places to eat nearby. The phone in the apartment comes in very handy as it can call US, Canada, and a few other places for free and we were encourage to use it as much as we want. The kitchen was also equipped with everything and we never felt like anything was missing. Ji also showed ran through the process of doing laundry in the building which obviously came as a huge bonus to anyone who might be travelling for a while.
Staying there was like having the joy of travelling somewhere exciting with the comfort of being able to come back home and resting easy after a long day.
Overall, every detail of booking of this trip with Paul and Ji, from booking the accommodation to checking out and everything in between was a great experience. I would highly recommend them and their apartment to everyone.
Paul and Ji were excellent, thoughtful hosts and their apartment is beautiful, clean, and exceeded my expectations (the views truly are amazing). The hosts were super about helping me check in to the apartment (even though I arrived after midnight!) and pointing out the various features and amenities. They were also always available to respond to questions.
Everything was as described- the place, location... and the owners were nice and efficient. We enjoyed our stay in the apartment and in the city- recommended!
I was in NYC for a business conference at columbus circle. The apt was very conveniently located and nothing went wrong. I got on v. well w. JiYoung and she was very accommodating and helpful. Originally the TV was not working properly, however, it was quickly fixed and JiYoung quickly called Verizon to resolve any additional issues. Also the view is very nice. There is some strong sunlight in the bedroom in the morning, however, this did not bother me in the slightest and JiYoung gave me a headsup. Sometimes they may have some specific requirements of their guests, however, this wasn't a problem for me.
Would absolutely stay here again next time I am in NYC.
Very nice appartment in a very nice neighbourhood! The view is indeed amazing!
Io e mio marito abbiamo soggiornato per una settimana a New York nell'appartamento di Paul e Ji e siamo stati benissimo. E' spazioso e ben arredato, ci siamo sentiti come a casa! Inoltre la zona è molto comoda, vicina alla metro e ad un supermarket, ed il panorama è strepitoso. Non potevamo chiedere di meglio!! Infine Paul e Ji sono stati gentilissimi: ci avevano lasciato coupon e biglietti omaggio per i musei più importanti... Insomma dieci e lode, una settimana memorabile!!!
My wife and I were delighted with the apartment, the area, our hosts, and life in (website hidden) the Upper East Side. The apartment is way up, it's quiet, bright, and everything was as advertised or better. We stayed for a week principally visiting museums and galleries, many of which were within walking distance (on Museum Mile). The neighborhood around the apartment itself is terrific, it abounds with restaurants, services,.and shops, and easy access to buses and the subway for longer trips. We mostly stayed in the area. Since we live in the country and have ample opportunity to cook for ourselves, we ate at local eateries, did some takeout and occasional street food. However, the apartment had a full kitchen, complete with good cookware, knives, spices and most condiments. It would have been easy to cook for ourselves, had we wished to. As for restaurants, there is just about every food type and restaurant price range within a very short distance from the apartment, so we had lots of choices. All in all, this was a great deal. If it sounds right for you, go for it.
Ji is a very nice guest. She is polite and friendly. She cleaned the bed and tower very carefully when she left.
I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to have Ji Young at my place. She was so open, friendly, and just so kind. She was extremely knowledgeable about health matters and gave me very helpful advice. A very special person and a beautiful soul. I immediately feel like she was my sister or someone I have known for a long time. She was very clean and considerate, which made her an ideal guest for any Airbnb host to have. I can't wait for her to come back!
Paul and Ji were great guests. They were very considerate and left the apartment just as they found it. They were also very interesting people to talk to. Hope our paths cross again!
I did not meet JI but there were no problems
and I got a nice note of thank you
It was a plaesure to meet Ji. She is a very friendly and respectfull person. Definitely welcome again!
ji stayed for two days in our studio! It was a really enriching experience for me and my roomate! It was a great time! I would totally recommend ji as a guest!
Ji was an absolute pleasure. She was courteous and clean, as well as a very interesting person to talk to! I'd happily host her again and highly recommend her to any host.
Great guest. Cleaned up after herself. No problems.
Such a pleasure to welcome Ji to Guanajuato! She had heard about this place from students and finally had the chance to visit this magical city. It is always fun to host another AIRBNB host! I hope Ji returns soon!
Wonderful company..loved having her..
