The host canceled my reservation 14 days before arrival.
Great little apartment in a fantastic location in the village. We survived Hurricane Irene in that apartment and stayed dry. Very tiny apartment but good for 2 people who don't mind the 5 flights of stairs.
Overall Tova's place was as promised. The 5th story walkup wasn't an issue for us, and the place was more than spacious enough for the three of us. As with everything AirBnb, you're slightly dependent on the kindness of strangers (ie the people who stayed there before you) to clean, but this worked out well and we did our best to leave the place clean as well. We had a little confusion on which linens to use, but she was quite responsive and it worked out fine. A cute place in a great neighborhood with a very responsive host.
El apartemento estaba muy bien situado y su precio era realmente bueno.
En general una experiencia muy positiva. Lo único negativo que me gustaría señalar es que no había ni toallas ni sábanas limpias. Y la nevera estaba llena de comida caducada...
Great apt in the West Village, walking distance from 2 subway lines, many things to see and do in the neighborhood. Air conditioning in the bedroom, fan in the living room. Good internet signal. Got the keys in the mail and then returned them the same way, very easy.
As other reviews have stated, the apt is on the 5th floor and these is no elevator but I didn't mind the climb. The location in West Village is ideal - very convenient to the shops, restaurants and subway. I didn't really stay much in the apt except to sleep, eat breakfast and check emails but it's very quiet. I didn't get to meet Tova but she was helpful in responding to my questions.
I stayed there with my mother and brother for 4 days and I can't complain on anything. The place is sweet and very well located, Tova always responded quickly to emails and questions I had.
The place offers everything you need, the only thing is that it's located on the 5th floor, with no lift.I thought it wouldn't be a problem but we were there while the weather was really really hot, so it was our daily gym :)
Apart from that, everything is perfect, especially for the rate!!I recommend Tova's place :)
Tova was great. Communication was fast and easy, the apartment was exactly as advertised.
This was the first apartment I rented through (website hidden); I was renting this apartment for my mother and two younger siblings coming to NY for a week vacation. Naturally I was a little concerned about renting for the first time, but I had faith and went along for the ride.
Tova was very nice to speak to and communicated via email with everything we had to know before we arrived. When looking through the pictures of the unit online they were not the best pictures and the apartment did not look to clean, so I asked and confirmed with Tova that it would be cleaned and ready for our arrival with clean bedding and towels. We also were told there was a blow up mattress for us to use if needed.
Now the fun begins: My mom arrives with the little ones, and the bedding and towels were in a mess and not cleaned. They had to run around looking for a laundry after driving 5 hours on a bus and subway, on a Sunday evening when most places were closed. They paid to get all the stuff cleaned and had to make the beds. Later on when they had to use the blow up mattress, there was none (The neighbor had it, turns out)
I spoke to Tova and emailed her about the problem and asked her to give us a free night due to the run-around. She told me that would be ok, however She never reimbursed us for a night $100 it never happened.
We left the house in perfect, much cleaner condition than we got it when first arrived. Tova asked me to mail the key to the next guest on her list, I did so and turns out something happened and they lost the key or cancelled. Tova then went on to blame me for not sending the key to herself after clearly asking me to send it to someone else.
To conclude this review, the apartment was potentially great in a great location, but not a hassle free experience. We were not happy with how Tova approached the issues and I’m still waiting for my $100.
Tova 's apartment is small but beautiful and is perfectly located in Manhattan. Just 5 min walk to the next subway. We really enjoyed our stay and I can't imagine to find a better place for that price!
