It was my first time using Airbnb and I could not have picked a better place. It's a great location and everything you could need is a few steps away. I was greeted by Luiza on my first day, she showed me my room and the keys. I liked the note (and chocolates!) that were left on the fireplace, it had great tips on where to go. The air conditioning was great to have when it was super hot in the city.
The room was as pictured. The bathroom was great, the shower had good pressure and the water was hot. Didn't use the kitchen much and the living room was nice to retreat to after being out all day.
Emily is a great host responding to any questions I had.
It was our first airbnb experience. We (two students) spend in NY 6 days. Room which we rent is very comfortable for two people, bigger than it appears on photos. Bed is okey. Emily is very friendly host. Almost all the time she wasn't at home. So we could use the living room and the kitchen every time we need. It's great! There is one more room for rent in the apartment, however during our stay it wasn't occupied. Towels and bedsheets are provided.
The only thing that made us feel a little bit uncomfortable is a sink which was full of dirty dishes and the lack of free space in the fridge.
The apartment is located near the Grand Central station. It's convenient, if you want to use the subway. Because there are two express trains that stop on this station (number 5 or 4 - green line).
Don't be afraid of the railway station! The area around the house is very safe, clean and quite. There are a lot of restaurants and shops. And the bus stop of New Airport Express (that can take you to and from JFK airport) for 16$ is very close (on 41 East St).
Thank you, Emily, for making us feel as at home! We definitely recommend this place to stay NYC.
Wish you the best,
Inga & Anna
Room and apartment are exactly as pictures and description. No unpleasant surprise.
I met Emily and Luiza very quickly just before leaving the room, but they seem to be very nice people.
During my stay, I've been welcomed by Michael and some notes from Emily. It was really nice to speak with him and talk about nice places where to go in New York.
Only bad point which I can see is noise and lights from the street you have in the bedroom, but I suppose it's probably very difficult to find a quiet and black room located in the hearth of downtown.
To conclude I would highly recommend this room to my friends.
Thanks so much to Michael, Emiliy and Luiza for the welcome.
J’ai vraiment apprécié le contact avec Emily qui m’a tout de suite mise en confiance pour ma première location avec Airbnb. La chambre était parfaite; propre, confortable et tranquille. Ma fille et moi avons très bien dormi. L’appartement est accueillant et le quartier est sécuritaire. J’ai vraiment eu une excellente expérience. Emily était en voyage pendant mon séjour mais son ami Michael a été un hôte super sympathique et très disponible. Je recommande cette chambre sans hésitation. Merci beaucoup Emily et Michael. / I really appreciated the contact with Emily who immediately put me at ease for my first vacation with Airbnb. The room was perfect; clean, comfortable and quiet. My daughter and I slept very well. The apartment is welcoming and the neighborhood is safe. I really had a great experience. Emily was traveling during my stay but her friend Michael was a very friendly and available host. I would recommend this room without hesitation. Thank you very much Emily and Michael.
Making arrangements was very simple, Emily communicated so quickly, warmly, and precisely. Her apartment is incredibly well located to public transportation anywhere around Manhattan and the boroughs. The little bedroom is just as pictured with a comfortable, firm double bed; one deep large drawer of dresser is set aside; and several hooks (with hangers on reqest) to hang clothing & towels on the wall. The bedroom and shared kitchen, sitting room, bath and shower are very clean and bright. On my arival, Emily was traveling but her friend Michael substitute-hosted and was just as welcoming, even carried my suitcase up and down the stairs so I wouldnt need to make 2 trips. Emily had left a charming note with info about local transport, cafes, and laundromat. It really felt like staying at a friend's apartment, with keys to come and go. They do rent the larger bedroom as well sometimes, but had informed me that another guest would be checking in, so, no surprises. Caveats: Not much, this is a great place to stay. You do have to walk up several steep flights of stairs. This room is just over the street so lots of street noise, i am not bothered by that but some may need earplugs. Might not work if you need a closet to hang a lot of clothing but i was fine with 4 requested hangers. Thank you Emily, and Michael, I hope to return soon! I left a Starbucks Frappuchino unopened in fridge for whomever wants it, & will mail you back your teaspoon I forgot to take out of my snackpack!
New York is an expensive city and if you want to stay in a good location in Manhattan, you have to spend money. Based on this, I would say that this location is great cause it's worth the money you spend. Well connected (5 minutes walking from Grand Central), big enough for 2 persons, clean.
Restaurants and shops 24/7 close to the flat and the neighboorhood looks safe (but I would say the same for almost all Manhattan, there's always people around :))
The bathroom is ok even if has to be shared between more people. The building is old and there's no elevator, the stairway are noisy :-). You are provided with lines and towel. The living room and the kitchen are useful (but honestly I never cooked!).
When me and my collegue were there, there was a friend of Emily. He's been friendly and helpful and we felt like we stayed in our home. Emily even if abroad often checked to see if everything was ok, it has been really appreciated.
We had some trouble with the WiFi connection (dropping each 5 minutes) but hard rebooting the router fix it (I only did it last day!!!), anyhow it was not a big issue and it's not depending on Emily :)
1) some additional hanger in the room for the towels
2) fix the door locker :)
Overall I would suggest this place to stay in New York, Emily is a great host!
Emily was great with communication and we had no issue finding the apartment or checking in despite the fact that she was traveling at the time. We were hosted by her friend Michael who was really easygoing and Emily left us written notes of where to go and apartment essentials. The apartment itself was small but cute and the location excellent especially as I had to be near grand central for work.
One thing to note - the bedroom faces a busy street and like any similarly situated New York apartment, it can be somewhat noisy because of street traffic. Also the wifi was dodgy when we were there which was difficult as we were working and needed an internet connection. Aside from that, no complaints though. Thanks Emily :)
Très bonne expérience de louer chambre chez Emily ! On était 3 amis venus pour visiter New York pendant quelques jours et l'appartement est bien placé et calme. Emily et sa colocataire Louisa ont tout fait pour rendre notre séjour agréable même si on ne les a pas beaucoup vu.
Very good experience renting a room at Emily's place ! We were 3 friends visiting New York for a few days and the apartment is very well located and quiet. Emily and her roommate Louisa made our stay really good even if we did not see them a lot.

Me and my parents had great time at Emily's place. The house has a fantastic location, and Emily was a great host. It was easy to communicate and the house was fully equipped. The room can be a little bit tight for three people, but the location and good vibe in the house makes it up.
Hope to stay again!
Kind and lovely people.
they stayed for a short time
but we really glad to host them .
Best wishes with them
Emily and her two friends, I'm sorry but I do not remember their names, three guests were very very friendly, accurate, timely and personable. Their youth has made the cheerful house. If they were to return to Florence I'd love to have them as guests again.
Emily is an excellent guest. Nice, polite and really respectful. She and her friends left the apartment in perfect condition.
Hope to welcome always people like her. I highly recommend her.
