Our trip in NYC was amazing!! I would highly recommend staying here and will definitely rebook as soon as time permits! My girlfriend and I had the perfect girls trip to NYC! John's apartment is located in one of the best areas of Manahattan! The most exciting and best feature of the apt is the rooftop view upon a 25 story building.. its pretty impressive! We were super licky to have gorgeous weather in June and were gracious for that! We enjoyed having our coffee and cereal in the mornings as well as nighttime views of the entire city! We had an easy time getting around the city since the apt was in the most perfect location! Pretty much, everywhere and everything was literally right around the corner like subways, Central Park, Columbus Circle,Times Square, etc! After a week in New York, we considered how lucky we were to be in this location! I would love to do it all over and stay here again!! It was bittersweet leaving- it began to feel like home:)
The place is amazing and very well located - a few blocks from the Central Park and the Times Square! Although John wasn't in the town but he was very gentle giving us a quick guide for NYC, cookies and answering our questions quickly. The rooftop view is wonderful.
The pictures describe exactly what the place is: clean, organized and cozy. Perfect for two people.
I definitely recommend John's place and would stay there again.
John was not in town at the time we arrived, but that didn't get in the way of a really smooth experience.
Getting the keys from the doorman was a breeze, the apartment was clean and hospitable and a nice "welcome package" was waiting for us with some instructions regarding the apartment and useful info about the neighborhood (and even cookies!:) -- in sum, everything was as promised.
Would recommend a stay there to anyone!
It was my first experience with airbnb and it was wonderfull. John's place is a perfect location in nyc! John is a most gracious host and he made sure that i had everything i needed. His apartment is an easy walk to everything you could possibly want and do in NYC.
Advice to all to enjoy the rooftop view.
I will be recommending to all visiting friends!
Overall, the place totally fit the bill for what my mom and I needed for our broadway shows trip to nyc. It was within walking distance (10 blocks) to most of the theaters for our shows or a really quick cab ride away ($5), yet far enough away that noise was never really an issue. Hell's kitchen with tons of restaurants and bars as well as major subway stops were only a few blocks away. And it was about 1/2 to 1/3rd of the cost of any of the decently rated hotels in the times square area. In true NYC fashion, the studio apartment was just one single room with an offset small kitchen, but the size was never really an issue for us. Overall, great experience and would stay here again!
Plus, John left us instructions as well as some cookies... who can beat that? :)
John's place is located at such an excellent spot. Everything is available within a short walk. The apartment is clean and cozy. For what I have paid I believe it is a bargain and I'll definitely recommend it. Thanks John!
Jonh is a very considerate and gentle person. The apartment is cozy and in a very good location. The room was great value for money and I would definetely recommend staying at this place. Clean rooms, considerate hosts, would definitely stay again! Very kind. You can go there without any doubt Thank you again. Juliana
John was very accommodating and easy to work with.
The apartment was small
but in a perfect location - easy to get from place to place - lots of restaurants around ... a great place to relax and wind down for the night!
John left plenty of room to hang clothes / drawer ... to settle in for a week.
I wish I would have been there at a warmer time of the year - to take advantage of the rooftop!!!!
It was a treat to host Joe and Ro! It's always a treat to host other AIRBNB people. My favourite kind of guests: adventurous, curious, self-sufficient. I'll look forward to seeing them the next time I'm in NYC!
We enjoyed talking to John and his friend. They are friendly, fun and easy going - they left the room exactly as it was when they arrived. Awesome guests all around, would highly recommend him.
John was an excellent guest at our house. He was very courteous to us and it was a pleasure to have him stay. He came with his girlfriend and she was also very nice. I would highly recommend them to say with anyone.
very wise guy, kind and open minded..
I used to work in New York in the past year and half and now I am in London for grad school. Knowing John for the past year while I was in NYC, he's a very easy-going and most importantly a very reliable person, that he always helps friends out and takes care of us when we hang out together. I've been to his cozy studio located in Columbia Circle before, it is really nice decorated and I love all the paintings his friends painted for him. I used to work across street from Carnegie Hall but my office moved to Bryant Park. I hope I knew him earlier so that I could crash his apartment after work or sth. cuz it's only 10 mins walk from my old work place. For people who are classical music fans and happen to book tickets during this Xmas season for symphony at Carnegie Hall, it's the prime location for that! His place is also close to all the subway lines, and it's so easy for us to go to his place. Not to mention that he has a great rooftop, we watched this year's July 4th firework on his rooftop and it's just great.
If you want to get easy access to all the places in NYC, soho, Chinatown, Financial district, Times Square, Williamsburg etc. John's place is for you! :)
