August 2013: This was my first experience on Airbnb and it was a delightful one.
We stayed at Russ’s place for almost 2 weeks and it was very comfy. We felt at home from the moment we stepped into the apartment until the time we did shut the door behind us on departure.
Our host Russ is very pleasant to communicate and talk to. Communication between us and the host was good and wonderful. Good and speedy response when we had any questions.
As I have a 13-year old daughter, Cyrus made our stay more than comfortable by re-connecting the TV-cable during our stay. Thank you so much!
The apartment is exactly like the pictures presented to you and is exactly as described. Apartment was spacious and clean. You have a great view from the living room and bedroom, a lot of natural light.
The neighborhood is safe,(reasonable) quiet and the location is perfect for a city trip. Delis, grocery stores, subways, restaurants, dry cleaners, etc. are in walking distance. Even Macy’s and Times Square!
Our overall opinion: great !
A beautiful apartment - just as you see in the photos - with the most stunning view of midtown. Both from the huge picture windows in the apartment and even better from the beautiful roof terrace. It's communal, but HUGE.
Russ/Cyrus couldn't have been more communicative or accommodating. I highly recommend this apartment and am so glad I stayed there. It reignited my love for the city (to wake up to the sun glinting off the Chrysler building is a beautiful thing), and I hope to return soon.
There are heaps of places to eat and nice bars nearby and if you're going out of town at any point, you're really close to Grand Central.
Excellent stay in Cyrus's place. This a lovely apt which very well located and was within easy walk of everywhere we needed to go. Its a very quiet and safe feeling neighborhood at night and given the elevated 21st floor location, you're away from street noise while getting to enjoy the fantastic cityscape by night. Cyrus is a very helpful and attentive host who responds quickly to queries but also leaves you enjoy the property. He has a good outline email about the property and the locality, amenities, transportation and food/beverage. All n all a great place to stay...enjoy
We have had a wonderful time at Russ's place. His apartment is decorated and furnished with style and great taste. In this partment one can feel "at home" and somehow sharing Russ's delicateness and taste. Everything went just smooth and perfect in terms of welcome and communication .
The apartment is truly even better than the picture, and for visiting New York it is an awesome place. The roof deck of the classy building is simply a fabulous experience.
We would highly recommend New York visitors to stay at his place. Many thanks again.
The appartment is in compliance with pictures and very conveniently located ( subway, buses, restaurants, shops ).Views are stunning indeed .
Cyrus (Russ) is always quick to help (emails,sms or phone) if you need anything, and he keeps in touch to check you enjoy your stay. We do thank him again for advice and attentions.
It was our first experience with Airbnb and we're very happy.
Look No Further!
Russ was a delight to work with. He is prompt, thorough and his apartment is beautiful! Completely appointed with everything to make your stay entirely comfortable! Russ sent me a very gracious email giving me highlights to the neighborhood, letting me know where to dine, locate grocers and pharmacies!
Russ' attention to detail makes arranging your stay in New York, seamless! The apartment is tastefully decorated, a beautiful new kitchen, and has the best energy! I immediately felt at home, and you will too! The views from the apartment are incredible. You have a perfect view of the Chrysler Building, and from the rooftop deck can also see the Empire State Building!
You can fall asleep at night, nestled in the midst of Manhattan skyscrapers, the soft glow of the Chrysler Building upon you! The bed is amazingly comfortable.
The neighborhood is quite safe, and convenient to those spending time downtown, midtown or east side!
Contact Russ and stay in this beautiful apartment! In case you can't tell from this review, I am elated to have stumbled across this gem in the city! Russ is such a gracious host, (even allowing me to borrow a jacket until I bought one!) He also left me a token gift on my arrival that I will cherish always!
I look forward to spending time here in the future...that is, if Russ will have me! All the best to each of you!
This was our third experience with AirBnB and I have to say that everything was more than perfect.
The apartment is EXACTLY what you see in pics: large, clean, very well kept with amazing view in a very nice building. Location is excellent. You can have all you want (from shops to market to subway to NY highlights) in a few minutes. Unfortunately we couldn't meet Russ in person but our contact with him was awsome. He's really sweet, very careful and always available by email or cellphone in real time. What else can I say?? I can't wait to go back to NY in this apartment. And a heartful special thanks to our host for his incredible job.
The apartment is VERY large by NY standards, tastefully decorated and super-conveniently located. Russ is a great host. I am looking forward to returning
It was great to find upon arrival, that the apartment did look exactly like the pictures Spacious living room, good sized bedroom with king bed that was very comfortable, and impressive views uptown from the bedroom and the living room. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. It was nice having a doorman greet us and help if needed for a taxi or to answer a question. We loved the neighborhood and found it an excellent location for getting places Although we walked many places, the subway at Grand Central station was a pleasant quick walk from where we could catch a train to all the places we needed. Had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend Cyrus' apartment to anyone.
First time using airbnb and so glad we were lucky enough to stay here! The apartment was located exactly where we wanted to be and was clean and cozy. Cyrus provided us with everything we needed for our stay and he offered insider tips on local attractions and restaurants. Such a gracious host. Very appreciative that he made us feel so welcome in his home. Would stay here again in a heartbeat, and look forward to using airbnb for our next adventure.
