Hi, I recently finished my masters degree at MIT and am now working as a consultant, love New York and it's energy and travel often for work.
Amit was really nice. Very flexible with check-in and check-out. Amit checked in via texts to make sure that we settled in without problems. The apartment was clean, but had less space than how it appears in the pictures. (There was a bookshelf, some more boxes and a couch). Still a rather comfortable place though, since it was clean. The location was great, very close to lots of food options and close to Trader Joe's. Thanks Amit!
I was a little hesitant to use Airbnb at first, but Amit's place was perfect! It's a cute, cozy apt in a great location. The apt is in a good neighborhood, close to a lot of restaurant, shops, and transportation. It was super easy to communicate with Amit and he was a wonderful host, checked up on us to make sure everything was ok. It was my friend's first visit to NY and she was really happy. I would definitely stay here again.
The location was in a great area. Perfect for walking and exploring other areas nearby. Union Square was extremely close with a lovely Christmas Market happening.
The apartment was clean and comfortable. It was a bit chilly throughout the week but it seemed that the heat kicked in at night.
Amit was a great host who emailed me before and during our stay to ensure we had all questions answered. He left us fresh towels and the keys were easily accessible.
We never actually met Amit, but the use of a lockbox to get the key worked fine. His place worked well for our stay in New York.
From the beginning to the end, Amit was incredibly pleasant to communicate with. I asked questions to verify the wifi was working, and that there would be clean towels and sheets when I arrived. As promised, there were fresh towels and nice sheets! Amit left the key in a very convenient lock box so I could arrive anytime I wanted, which was great! The apartment is a walk up, and is cozy. It reminded me very much of my old apartment in Murray Hill, which made me feel at home.
The building is pre-war, which is what gives it such great character. Unlike most pre-war buildings, this one has great water pressure!! The building is not modern, or newly renovated, so if that is what you are looking for, this would not be for you. It was however, clean and well maintained.
I did not do any cooking, but found the kitchen had everything available. Unlike most people, I was not on vacation, and ultimately spent a large amount of time in the apartment... I enjoyed it very much! Great air conditioning, and ZERO street noise! :)
Overall, I would stay here again in a heartbeat! I just hope it will be available! On another note, I left my favorite scarf in the apartment and Amit offered to mail it to me at no charge. A true gentleman! Thanks again Amit!
The location of the apartment its great, but I finded the apartment very dirty. It seemed to me that it has not been cleaned for a long time. We also had a problem with te eletrics of the apartment. Something happened and some lights were off and the internet connection did not work. Amit, the owner, tried to help, but could not because he was out of town.
Response from Amit:
Due to electrical issues in the entire building some electricity issues
happened in the apartment, they were promptly fixed and the guest was
compensated for his inconvenience.
Très bon weekend passé dans l'appartement d'Amit, qui est tres calme pour New York, propre et idéalement situé (à 2 pas de Union Square).
Amit fut un tres bon hôte et nous a conseillé des bars sympas, de plus il a répondu tres vite au questions que nous nous posions. ;-D
Very good weekend in the apartment of Amit, who is very quiet for New York, clean and conveniently located (2 steps from Union Square).
Amit was a very good host and advised us of cool bars, plus it has responded very quickly to questions we asked ourselves. ;-D
This was our very first time we used Airbnb. Amit made this first time easier for us. He is easy going and easy to get in touch with. He opened his place sincerely. We experienced no hesitations during whole process. Just first couple days apartment was a little chilly and dusty. However, we solved all that. Again thank you Amit. It was nice to meeting you. We expect to host you here.
Great place in a nice and extremely convenient location - Amit was very helpful, overall a very pleasurable experience - thanks!
A well located little apt perfect to go and explore the city.
