Manuel is a great host. We had another reservation and the other host cancelled it only five days before our arrival, so i start to looking for another place and Manuel answer me so quickly and give us a lot of facilities. And the first day when he received us he was so kind and helpful.
The apartment is so good , because its very well located, only about five minutes walking to Grand Central Station where you can catch several subway lines and about 15 walking to Times Square.
The sofa of the living room was big and very confortable and the bedrooms are big too. The only thing we miss, in spite of he left us a wardrobe in the living, is that the bedrooms dont have so much places, like bedside tables or wardrobes, to put our things.The house was clean, he left us towels,shower gel and all we need. I miss too a hair dryer because i forgot mine and in the house there was no one.
In general we spend a great time in New York and on Manuel´s aparment , so i recomended it!
Everything was accurate on Manuel's advertising about the "Big Room". Manuel responded to all my text message and the communication was excellent. Because we spent all our time with our kids we saw Manuel only the night we checked in. He welcome us in his house with a warm smile. I read somewhere that "NY is NOT for sissies" and indeed it is not. This is a busy, noisy street but the location is excellent. The room have big windows (dirty outside) and you need to have the curtains closed if you need some privacy. Manuel's house is very clean. The big room, like he advertised only have a full bed and the mattress is VERY soft (a problem for me) but I was so tired in the end of the day that I survived the 3 nights. I left a feedback to Manuel for him to add to the "big room", a table w/ a chair, a mirror and two of those folding hotel luggage rack so you have something to put your luggage on.
That will make a huge difference in the big room. $150 felt a little too much for an almost empty room and this is why I left my feedback to him because adding just a few things will justify more the $150 per/night. Anyway, I recommend the AirBnB and Manuel "Big Room" to anyone who wants to have a fantastic time in NY but remember: - "NY is not for sissies".
Great place and location. Really close to Grand Central station and really easy to get around.
Manuel's place was great! The photos are accurate -- except the one of the bedroom. As Manuel stated in his description, he has a read bed now, and it is amazing. I loved it.
Other pluses --
* The bedroom was very large and had lots of windows -- I was surprised.
* It was easy to get in and out of the building.
* The building and neighborhood felt safe.
* He provided towels, shampoo, and soap. (This was nice because I forgot mine.
* He was also EXTREMELY responsive in our communications.
I would definitely stay here again!
This apartment is very well kept, well located, and Manuel is terrific. Group of five of us stayed here for a weekend, so Manuel set up an air mattress as an extra bed in the second room - left sheets, towels, pillows, etc. for everyone. Living room area has comfy seating for 5. Large closet space to hang your clothes and store suitcases off the living room. Key hand off super easy. Would most definitely stay here again!
Hemos estado una semana en NY por primera vez,la localización del apartamento es genial y nos ha permitido movernos a nuestras anchas por metro, tren, caminando y por bus.
El apartamento es espacios, hemos estado 5 personas y sin agobios
*This was my first trip to NY and my first time using airbnb.* Super excellent location. Maybe two blocks from Grand Central Terminal so getting to the subway was a breeze which made getting to anywhere totally easy. The bed was comfy and plenty of space to lay out and recharge for another day of adventures. The water pressure in the shower was excellent, & normal size. I guess I wasn't sure if there would be a tub/shower since we were in a city apartment but there was plenty of space. Towels were provided and laid out for us so we didn't have to search for anything. Manuel was right there if we needed anything, he is very friendly. Plenty of space for the 4 of us travelers. Manuel had a large closet available for our use which I turned into my dressing room so I kept my bags in there and could hang up my clothes. I hope to visit New York again and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. There really is tons of space here, and seriously the location couldn't get better.
I reached out to Manuel on very short notice and he was able to come through for me. During my stay he was a great host. During the day he worked so it was like I had the place to myself. If you're looking for a place in a great location with a friendly host, this is it!
Très bon accueil, Manuel a été un très bon hôte.
Très discret, il n'a pas marqué sa présence dans l'appartement en même temps que nous (Nous avions loué que la chambre).
Chambre simple, propre et lumineuse, idéalement située pour visiter NYC.
I had another reservation with someone else through this site, and it was cancelled- much to my frustration- three days before our scheduled trip. Manuel was quick to respond to my request, very friendly, and was helpful with any questions I had. We had a great stay at his home. The location was terrific, the apartment was clean, pictures were accurate of what you got, and the building felt safe and secure. Very good experience!
