I travel quite a lot and sometimes my room is available. I like meeting new people, trying different kinds of food, rock climbing, running, scuba diving, cycling and hiking.
I was moving to NY from Paris for business and Kei (and Ida :) ) took me in. They were so nice, polite and more than everything else helpful. They helped me with advices for the first few days and softened "big move" shock . I'll always remember them :).
Thanks Kei and Ida :)
I had an amazing stay at Ida's place (I didn't meet Kei since she was away with work). The apartment was super clean (my standards are high and I was very impressed by her place) and in a great location: only a couple blocks from the subway and with a trader joe's nearby too.
Ida is very sweet and kind, a wonderfully helpful host who will do whatever she can to make sure you have a great stay in NYC.
I think the room is only available when Kei is travelling so you will be lucky if you get to stay here! It's a big space by my standards, with hardwood floors, high ceilings, big window, comfy bed (not too hard, not too soft), desk with ethernet hookup, dresser & wardrobe for clothes, and plenty of floor space left over. I would definitely stay here again!
Kei was out of town when I stayed here so I was hosted by her mother Ida who was wonderful. I have hosted travelers at my apartment in Los Angeles, but this was my first time using the service to stay someplace, and the experience did not disappoint.
The apartment is small and simple like most Manhattan residences, but the room was perfect for my needs--a clean, private and cozy space in a fantastic location. Having lived in NYC a number of years, I am familiar with the area, but Ida was ready and willing to offer tips and help had I not been savvy. She was very accommodating and constantly working to make sure I was comfortable and happy in the apartment. I will definitely keep this apartment in mind next time I head to the big apple!
This was the 2nd time I stayed at Kei/Ida's place. Again, Ida is a great host (Kei was still out of town)! My room and bathroom were very clean and the apartment was quiet. The location is great and grocery stores are very close by. Definitely would recommend the place!
This was only my second time using Airbnb and I'm sold on it after the wonderful experience that I had here. The room was terrific, clean and comfortable in a classic upper West side New York apartment. Ida was also the perfect host, generous and helpful with any questions that I had and respectful of my privacy, also just an all around nice person. The apartment is also in a fantastic location. As a female business traveller, I felt safe walking alone late at night in this neighborhood. I definitely hope to stay here again in the future. Thank you so much Ida and Kei!
Kei was out of town so I never got to meet her, but her mother Ida was lovely. I felt very comfortable in the apartment and will look to stay there again on my next visit to NY.
Ida was the most amazing host.
I can tell you this lady is so sweet, kind and great to have around for a chat.
I really felt like I knew her for years and she knows this area very well. She keeps the apartment very clean and it was such a pleasure staying there.
The location of the apartment is amazing. This area has everything you need and is great to explore by foot. It's also a very safe location
The room was very clean, big for one person and had eveything I needed.
If the room is available stay here as you will love it.
I have found my new home from home in NYC.
Thanks so much Ida and I will see ya again, even If I have to sleep in the bath without my shoes....:)
Kei was out of town, but Ida (her mother) was there to greet me. Ida was a wonderful host. She was very kind and was accommodating to my late arrival time. The apartment / room was very clean! The location is top notch as it's a 5 minute subway ride to Time Square (on Express). I would definitely stay here again. Thanks again Ida!!
Kei was out of town, but I was generally hosted by her mother. The location is great on the Upper West Side where families and peaceful neighbors reside. Public transportation to the 79th and 72nd trains made it very swift to get downtown, and I couldn't have asked for a better location. The host was thoughtful and even gave me advice on the trains (as they can be a bit unpredictable). She respected my space as long as my door was closed and didn't mind that I left in and out of the apartment. Definitely give this place a try if you're thinking of visiting New York!
I was tentative about staying somewhere through AirBnB, but the price was just too good and with all the amazing reviews of Kais place I had to try it out, if not for the adventure alone.
What a place. Perfect location, lovely room, friendly host (Kai was away on business but her mum was there and very friendly). I honestly couldn't recommend this place enough. Being given the keys to come and go as I wanted was fantastic! There was a lock on my room door as well, so I had no worries about security.
When I am next in NYC I will definitely try to come back!
Kei was very nice and very clean.
Only positive things to tell about her.
We warmly recommend her and it will be a real pleasure to welcome her (website hidden)éo
Kei and Tom were the perfect guest. They are extremely polite, clean tidy and friendly. We would definitely recommend them as guests. We would welcome them into our home anytime.
Ida was a very nice guest! It was our pleasure to have hosted ida! She is friendly very considerate and easy to talk with in general. She stayed with us for the whole month of march n during her stay she took good care of our apt as if it was her very own and she tried her best to help us with maintenance which is much appreciated! She respects and gets along well with other guests in the house. We would definitely recommend her to any host out there!
Kei is absolutely super-fabulous-amazing. Not only did she observe house rules, she was very respectful. Kei has some magical way of being casual and warm and making you feel like you're just living with a good friend. I enjoyed having her over so much that she's actually staying a couple weeks more until she can move into her flat. I really liked that she treated the house as her own and used the living room, cooked, and wasn't shy to work in the living room with me or chill out, but was always respectful and clean. I can't say enough positive things about her and anyone who would deny hosting her would be missing out tremendously. I recommend her to any host!
It was an absolute pleasure having Kei stay with us - she was friendly, clean, positive, interesting and easy going; it felt like having an old friend to stay rather than a new guest. She's a AirBnB host herself so she was a conscientious and easy to look after and fit readily in with the household. We would welcome her back any time and would certainly recommend her to other AirBnB hosts. Thanks Kei, keep in touch! Cheers, R
Kei was a very friendly guest and would definitely recommend her.
Kei is a very nice and positive person and a perfect guest! It was a real pleasure to have her in my apartment while I was out of town. When I came back everything was clean and perfect.
