Merlo met us promptly after we arrived in NYC to give us the keys, he showed us a few things in the apartment, and then left us to get settled. Nice guy :) This apartment is fantastic. The bed was very comfortable and had high quality sheets. Dressers next to the bed are empty so you can have a place to put clothes. The closet also has room to hang things. Bathroom was well stocked with enormous bath towels and there was a blow dryer (so, no need to pack one) We didn't do any cooking but the kitchen has everything you need. If you drink coffee there is a Tassimo machine and a french press, but also there is a coffee/diner at the corner which has good coffee (and bagels) There is also a supermarket nearby. The location is great. We never had to take a cab.. this apartment is close to the A/C/E and the 1/2/3 lines so you can literally go anywhere without having to spend a lot for a cab.. If you fly into JFK you can even take the subway from the airport and save a ton of money (Airtrain+Subway is $7.50) . Also, the East River ferry 34th st. dock is close enough to walk (less than 1 mile.) and the High Line is a couple blocks away. We did it all with very minimal walking. The apartment is very secure, with a locked gate and a locked front door to the building. The elevator is large, modern and worked well. The street is relatively quiet and the walls are thick enough you don't hear the neighbors. Merlo was a great host! We would stay here again!
Perfect Studio space, ultra clean, comfortable, well equipped, quiet, fast wifi. Great location, steps from galleries and fun hangouts. Merlo was accommodating and friendly, quick to reply, courteous. Only great things to say!
-well equipped & clean apartment
-central location with good infrastructure
We stayed here 8 nights and thoroughly recommend this quiet, secure and well located apartment. The host was very friendly, helpful, and replied to all queries very quickly. Everything was as advertised and very clean. Supermarket 2 blocks away, heaps of places to eat nearby, Penn Station 2 blocks away with subway lines A C E 1 2 3 which take you in all directions though many sights are within easy walking distance. Appreciated host's flexibility with our checkout time of 4 pm due to a late evening flight.
Die Woche in Merlo´s Apartment war wunderbar: die Wohnung ist ideal für zwei Personen, sehr sauber und gepflegt! Ihre Lage ist optimal: in weniger als fünf Minuten ist man an der Penn-Station/ Madison Square Garden. Viele Attraktionen (Empire State Building, Time Square ...) sind auch gut zu Fuss erreichbar. Bars und Restaurants sind gleich um die Ecke.
Die Beschreibung des Apartments trifft voll zu!
Der Kontakt zu Merlo war sehr freundlich und völlig unkompliziert, die An- und Abreisezeit konnten wir individuell vereinbaren. Wir kommen gerne wieder!
This was our first time using AirBnB, and we were a bit apprehensive about it. However, from the very start Merlo was responsive and accommodating of every question and need we had.
The apartment was in a great location - 4 short blocks away from Penn Station, so getting back was always easy. It was also very clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed the way he decorated his place. Getting anywhere in Manhattan was easy from this location, and we loved that we were able to walk to most places we wanted to go
It was a perfect stay, and we would easily stay at Merlo again whenever we visit NY.
I see that the NY mayor is protecting big business hotels, so I just hope that AirBnB can continue to operate there in the future.
Perfect apartment in a great location. It's located on a nice quiet street steps away from lots of things to see and do.
We had a lovely stay at Merlo's apartment. It was clean, convenient, and the bed may have been the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! It's very close to Madison Square Garden which was very convenient since we were in NY to see a concert there. Overall we had a fantastic stay in Merlo's and will plan to stay there again in the future!
I spent five days in the apartment and found it clean, comfortable, and everything well organized - just as described. Merlo was very responsive and easy with arrival and departure times. Thank you merlo! All together: good value for money and to be recommended.
Second time staying here while in NYC. Great host, beautiful apartment, highly recommended!
