We had a great stay at Birol's place for 5 nights. Linda greeted us warmly and was a great help in getting us acquainted with the place and with any questions we had. There wasn't too much around but most of our time was spent in Manhattan so it wasn't a problem. Overall, we had a great stay. Thank you very much Birol & Linda!
Birol's place was even better than I expected. The accommodations were as nice as the pictures. The apartment was spacious and super clean. Birol made check in really easy, and everything about the process was smooth and organized. He also had a very clever and practical solution to ensure all the keys and corresponding locks to all the doors were idenitified and marked which mitigated fumbling around keys coming back to the apartment. Woodside Queens is a nice neighborhood with a lot of character and very centrally located and a great place to base yourself for going into Manhattan and also if you want to come see a Mets game at CitiField.
The hosts were very accommodating and flexible with check in and check out. The accommodation itself very clean with plenty supplies (lots of herbs to make tasty meals). It is very close to the subway, which made travelling into Manhattan convenient. However, the first night i stayed, there was a lot of air traffic noise (I mean A LOT of noise)...I messaged the host who was very apologetic, and informed me that the noise is intermittent depending on the direction of wind travel. She suggested putting a fan on, which did drown the noise slightly and I must add i stayed there 3 nights, the noise was only a problem the part of the first night.
Birol is super nice and helpful, and he goes out of his way to make sure everything is good! The entire house is super clean and tidy, and the amenities are excellent!! I would definitely recommend this place!
Great accommodation with excellent proximity to NYC via train! Extremely clean and neat space that has everything one could think of or need. Linda was present to hand over the keys and give us a quick tour of the house. She was really helpful even after and gave us some excellent tips on places to eat around her place. The neighborhood is very diverse too and overall we absolutely loved our stay here. Will return and recommend highly. 10/10! :)
Birol is a very nice host. The apartment is located in a very convenient neighborhood. I highly recommend his apartment to everyone!
FIVE STAR LISTING!!!!!
this was a back to back stay. please see my review below.
OMG YOU MUST BOOK HERE. FIVE STARS ALL AROUND IF I COULD RATE 10 I WOULD. I HAVE NEVER SEEN AN APARTMENT THIS WELL CARED FOR, THE TLC IS BLATANTLY OBVIOUS, AND METICULOUSLY SPOTLESS ENOUGH TO EAT OFF THE FLOORS (no joke). it shows amazing pride, and respect, for self and guests. HOST: birol is a man of few words :-), laid back, very responsive, and was awaiting my arrival outside on his step after an 8 hour travel day which to date, i have never seen anyone do. soooo kind, considerate and welcoming. gracious and welcoming allowing me to extended my stay. TWICE. APT: 3 BR with 2 guestrooms adjacent to each other--you can hear sounds from the other guest room but its not obnoxious at all. birol's room is on the other end of the apartment. the well equipped kitchen (SPOTLESS) is large with a cafe table. you'll have full access to all appliances. large living room area, good lighting, very comfy, inviting sofa. great balcony facing front. no clutter anywhere. BEDROOM: HUGE! wooden floors with a large clean rug. thoughtful decor. ALL is as shown, desk, chair, nightstand, nightlight, sound machine for sleeping (nice touch birol) entire chest of drawers, HUGE walkin closet with hangers, towels, blankets, pillows, benches (yes), an iron and a blow dryer. big picture window facing west views LIC (long island city). you'll look out to building roofs but its so rare to not be on top of a neighbor, looking into their window or a brick wall, its certainly something to appreciate. oh yeah, it has a room darkening blind too! you can even watch the planes flyover. yes, its loud, sometimes annoying but learn to embrace their grandure. windows open wide and wall unit AC works. there's also a space heater along with baseboard water heating which is great for winter dry air so that you don't have dusty heat blowing all over you. BATHROOM: 1/2 master bath is super convenient (other guest room shares main bathroom with shower) and both this and the main bath are IMMACULATE. that's all you need to know but there's more: all mounted and hand held shower head with great water pressure and no water filling up the tub during a shower. he provides all toiletries, including in the guest room with the attached 1/2 bath, paper towels, mouthwash, Qtips, cotton balls, and even toothbrushes. soooo thoughtful. there's even an extra roll of TP so you don't have to ask for it. BUILDING: 3 story well lit, walkup withOUT scary steps (super cool hand sponge painted walls) and even a skylight. never heard a peep from neighbors. HOOD: woodside is a quiet and sleepy multicultural family oriented car friendly residential area 2 blocks from MTA M/R subway line and about 5 blocks or so from the 7/LIRR. few conveniences/merchants around the corner but more over near the 7. close enough to manhattan to be convenient. I WOULD MOVE IN HERE TOMORROW IN A QUICK NY...
I would definitely recommend Birol's place, The apartment and room are very clean, big and organized, The room was exactly as described. It is really close to a 24 hour open subway station, 20 minutes from times square, there are all kind of restaurants and convenience stores around, the high speed wifi worked very well. Birol is a very helpful host, he gave us our own space, he provided us specific instructions about how to get to the apartment from the airport by subway prior our arrival.
The size of the room makes it a great place for couples.
Our expectations were exceeded.
Everything is nice and comfortable. Will recommend to my friends!
