The apartment was wonderful. Just as described and although Charles was not able to meet us upon arrival, his substitute was there and answered all of our questions. It is decorated very nicely. Perfect location for the theater and nearby attractions. We were pleasantly surprised to be welcomed with flowers, wine and coffee. We would recommend this lovely apartment to anyone visiting New York.
Staying at apartment 3 was a dream. Charles rushed from the subway in the New York cold to greet us and show us around his perfectly styled abode, along with gifting us a bottle of red wine and a packet of quality coffee - the way to our hearts! My husband and I stayed here with two of our friends for four nights and immediately felt right at home. The apartment is well situated (only a few blocks from Times Square) with easy walking distance to any restaurants, to hailing a cab, or catching the subway to wherever your heart desires (there is naturally so much to explore). Apt 3 is Super comfortable, spacious, and well styled. The bedrooms are small but cosy and essentially all you need considering the rest of the apartment is so well sized.
A few things to note:
- we only had one roll of toilet paper so had to go out and buy some more.
- stairs are really narrow, so watch your step.
- on the listing it mentions "access to washing machine / dryer", I don't believe this is in apt 3 as we couldn't find it but assuming you could text Charles to show you where it is.
Apart from those few things, all was absolutely perfect. And that rooftop - INCREDIBLE. Go up and check it out. The views are pretty special.
Charles was a great host and I had a wonderful time staying at his apartment! While I didn't didn't interact with him in person too much as he was away during my arrival, he was very helpful and quick at responding to messages! The apartment itself was also great - it's located in an ideal spot of Hells Kitchen. Relatively quiet for NYC but only a few blocks away from some great bars and restaurants! If I find myself in the area again, I wouldn't hesitate rebooking the apartment :) Thanks for a great trip Charles!
The apartment was accurately described and worked very well for two couples from different generations. The view from the rooftop garden was spectacular and we were able to see some of the NYE celebrations in Times Square from the roof. We enjoyed the interesting artwork in the apartment and generous provisioning of kitchen and bathroom needs. The bottles of wine and bag of coffee beans left for us on arrival were a lovely touch.
The heating was effective, and the entertainment system provided plenty of variety and no headaches - Netflix is always a bonus!
The location was perfect. We walked to the theatres, Central Park, MOMA and shopping. There is great diversity in the restuarants and Delis close to the apartment , but we also found it easy to access recommended restaurants in Harlem and the East village using both taxis and the Metro.
Charles had to leave unexpectedly before we arrived. Nevertheless, we were able to access the apartment easily and communicate effectively throughout our stay.
Amazing apartment. When we arrived There was a welcome bottle of wine waiting on the table. Charles was great and would recommend spots to see or eat.
Rooftop terrace was spectacular!
I don't think there's a better place to stay in Manhattan for the price/location.
Would definitely recommend !
The apartment is great, beautifully decorated, well equipped and very comfortable. The space is laid out in a way that totally keeps privacy between two couples. It's also close to the subway station and a 15 min walk to Times Square.
Charles was an amazing host! He prepared the place in each detail, welcoming us with a bottle of wine. We had a problem with our luggage in the airport and Charles helped us a lot with it.
I really recommend the place and would definitely stay there again!
Charles was an incredible host at this fabulous apartment. Communication with him was great and he was there to welcome us upon arrival. The apartment was exactly as described and shown in pictures. All high end fixtures, appliances and bedding. Fantastic original artwork adorned every wall. Access to the very tidy laundry room was much appreciated. The roof top was the highlight for all of us.! The location provided easy access to subways, times sq, midtown, theater district etc. Too many great restaurants to mention. We plan to visit again.
A great apartment in an ideal location. The apartment was huge, spotlessly clean, and a short walk from all of the major sights. Hell's Kitchen has plenty of shops, bars and restaurants, but is also far quieter at night than many other neighbourhoods. A special mention goes to the roof terrace - the views are even better than as shown in the photos. Overall, Charles was a great host, and we'd definitely recommend his apartment as a base for anyone looking to explore the city.
Charles is the most warm and welcoming host! His place is absolutely stunning. Decor is amazing and comfortable. You immediately feel at home when you walk in through door. Location was great! So many good restaurants and nightlife. This will definetly be our spot when traveling to the city.
Charles was an excellent host. Our accommodations were awesome. Clean, welcoming and had everything we needed for a comfortable trip. We felt right at home. You cannot beat this location. Walking distance to everything without but in a quiet neighborhood. Spectacular views from the private rooftop patio.
Great restaurants just steps away from the apartment. We will definitely be contacting Charles again for our next trip to New York.
Charles was a pleasure to communicate with from the day he reserved with me. We had many texts and messages between us and he always responded right away when I reached out to him.
I did not meet him personally, but my caretakers said he was a great guy and enjoyed him too.
Charles is a wonderful guest and is very easy to communicate with. I would definitely recommend him!
Charles is a wonderful host and very accommodating. His home in BelAir is gorgeous and secluded yet close to a lot of things in LA. The house has a lot of character and beautiful furniture and artwork. The hottub and pool are wonderful and overall had an amazing, relaxing time staying here. Would definitely recommend it!
