We had a wonderful and seamless stay at Martin's studio! The pictures posted were true to form AND the place was very clean. As a matter of convenience, the subway is a block away making it easy and safe to get around/return to the place. There is also a deli in the building which ensures you can have that first cup of coffee before stepping into a cold morning! We didn't have much need to communicate w/Martin since everything was great and as promised however, when we did call/email him about our arrival/departure, he was quick to respond and very gracious. This place is definitely a gem, and leaves no question about where I'll be staying next time I need a place in NYC!
Martin was a great host and the apartment & building are lovely! Really great & quick communication throughout and the one tiny problem we had (wifi not working when we arrived) Martin was able to help us fix quickly. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay there again.
I can't even begin to explain how amazing Martin's condo is. From the location, to the interior, to the amazing price! Everything was fabulous! I would DEFINITELY recommend this place to anybody looking to stay in Manhattan. The place was clean, exactly as depicted in the pictures, the location was close to so many train options, AND they had a fabulous doorman named Albert who enriched our lives with amazing stories of NYC and hiphop back in the day. Thanks Martin for sharing your place with my boyfriend and I, we had a blast!
It was the best apartment we could have had. Located in a very beautiful place, the view was awesome from the 22nd floor. The host wasnt there but the check in and checkout was very smooth. Given a chance i will stay here again.
I had a great time using Martin's apartment. It is was very cozy, and makes you feel quite swanky. The building is great, the bed comfortable, and location prime! (It is literally a minutes walk from 3 major subway stations). Staying there really enhanced my trip, and I'd recommend this place to anyone...best location at a very reasonable rate!
There would only be a couple things I'd be clear about with Martin if I was to book with him again.
1) If you want access to the gym on the first floor, let him know in advance. I tried to use the gym and wasn't allowed to by the doorman because of insurance issues. So, just include that in your reservation so he can clear you to use the gym.
2) If you desire some closet space, ask him to clear some space. It wasn't a big deal for me, but my dad would have preferred a few empty hangers.
All in all, it was a GREAT experience. I would definitely stay here again, and recommend him to ALL!!!
Unfortunately we had 2 complaints from the neighbours and association about noise and disturbance in two separate ocassions. I will have to deal this issue with the association.
The guest claims that it wasnt them.
The apartment was kept in order and fairly clean. The guest got most of his deposit back, only a key that was borken was deducted from sec deposit.
