Hi my name is Florence,
I am new to airbnb and I have a gorgeous luxury apartment in Manhattan. I love to host, and I love the city, so feel free to ask me anything.
This was my first time using airbnb and I had a great experience. Florence was wonderful at fast communication and super helpful with all questions I had. The people she had that met me and spoke with me on the phone were also very friendly and informative. The place looks even nicer in person, it was super clean and in a great location. I thought the area might be a bit in the middle of no where but there were so many cute shops and bars right next door. There was also a supermarket literally down the street. So convenient!
The one thing I will warn is to have someone show you how to use the keys before they leave. The keys work, but you have to twist it a certain way and push on the door which can be a bit confusing and gave me a mild heart attack the first time when I thought I was locked out.
Overall, I highly recommend this place!
Florence was a wonderful host, and this is a great apartment. We cannot not think of a better place for our group of four (one couple and two friends) to stay for our four nights in the city, and we will certainly try to get this apartment again when we return.
First of all, the location cannot be beat. The neighborhood is fantastic and the subway is right outside the door to the building. The apartment was also quiet at night, in spite of the vibrant life right downstairs. There are great restaurants and bars very close by.
The apartment itself is a nice size for a Manhattan flat, and it is really cozy. We didn't spend a lot of time there, but it was a nice place to return to after a long day in the city. The water pressure in the shower was great, and there was plenty of hot water and comfy towels.
Great place! Great hosts! Great experience!
Florence was excellent in communicating before our trip.
Checked in with Nancy, and the place was great, just like the photos. The neighborhood was safe, and had the benefit of a grocery store across the street and nearby food and pubs that were close enough for convenience but far enough for noise.
Two story penthouse with 1 bedroom on the first floor and the other 3 upstairs. The first floor bedroom has a balcony, but the bathroom with the shower/tub was upstairs.
Overall experience/value rating of 5 stars is based on the price ($500/nt), location (Manhattan) and finding a 4 bedroom place was perfect for our group of 8 (4 couples).
A good sized apartment in a great location in Midtown Manhattan
The apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures, very spacious and nice. Everything worked perfectly, the building is very nice and the doorman was very helpful!!
Had a great communication with Florence, I would definitely recommend it and would love to stay here again.
Un lugar muy agradable, limpio y con una gran vista, tiene una cama doble y un colchón doble, y un par de sofás. La cocina equipada con todo lo necesario, el baño tiene tina, secador. Los porteros del edificio son muy amables y Florence es una linda persona. Una muy buena opción para pasar varios días en NY. Ojo tengan cuidado donde dejan el carro hay pocas zonas de parqueo les pueden colocar un comparendo y los parqueaderos son muy costosos en toda NY.
The views from this apartment are exceptional! We enjoyed five wonderful days here and would definitely stay here again.
One note: if you plan to arrive prior to 11am, make arrangements for your bags to be stored in the event you can not check in until 3pm. There is no doorman in the lobby.
Everything as described. I can recommend the apartment!
The apartment is very well located, about 5 minutes from the subway and just next door to shops, restaurants and bars. It is tastefully redecorated (we were the first to stay there after the remodel) and is quite spacious, the bed is incredibly comfortable which is a bonus after a long day walking around town. It was quiet and we slept well, the neighborhood is nice and safe and the apartment toasty warm. The apartment is equipped with kitchen utensils and toilet a paper, hand soap and fluffy towels are included. It would easily sleep 4 (sofa bed). Communication with Florence was excellent and she was very helpful. Internet and cable are also included. We loved staying here and highly recommend this apartment.
Four of is stayed in the apartment and we found some pros and cons. If you are planning to cook at the apartment, consider bringing your own stuff as it is not well equipped lacking some basics such as a kettle... The master bedroom is very good but the sofa is another story... On the positive side, the location was convenient with lots of nice places to eat and drink nearby and the subway only tow blocks away. Parking was also available one street up! The building staff were great and helpful!
Great Location!!!! Awesome Apartment, close to everything you could want,close to subway, very comfortable, warm, and inviting!! Florence so gracious and accommodating i have no words Definitely recommend to all my friends 5 stars. Enjoy!
