The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The location is walking distance to the train and it's direct route to Manhattan. I've met Ed once and he was polite and helpful. The bathroom was clean too.
It has been a nice experience to stay in Ed's apartment. He is so kind and you won't have trouble staying there. We've been for two days and didn't have any trouble. The train operates all night long and also stores nearby.
This is 2nd time I stayed at Ed's place. The room is exactly the same as description and very good value for the money. I didn't cook this time as I can find out many good restaurant in neighbors and the super market is just in the same block.
The place was good, like the pictures. The only thing it wasn't as clean as we expected, the bathroom was ok and the floors were a little dirty, the beds were comfortable and the ac was a little bit too loud! Ed was a good host answered my questions, the place is located in a good area close to everything.
I recommend the 2 bedroom in Astoria! You're close to great shops, restaurants and subway! So convenient and comfortable. I will definitely stay here again!
Our hoste was quiet rude as we arrived.
The" Amazing " appartement as it was written,
Noisy, we could ear all conversations of the neigbors.
It wasn't really clean (floors weren't swipted)
The place didn't feel safed.
Only a place to sleep for us with the necessary to leave
By the way, beds were confortable
The kitcheen was well organised with the necessary to cook
it wasn't far away from the train station,
We found many places to by food close from the appartement.
The house was as seen in the picture. It is clean and ideal for 4 adults. Astoria-ditmars is a safe and lovely location. Free wifi in the house is a great advantage. It is 10 mins walk to subway station. You can use both q and n trains and it takes app 15-20 mins to get to manhattan. Ed was waiting for us when we arrived and we havent seen him anymore. Because everything is all right and we dont need to contact him. I suggest Ed's house to everyone.thanks Ed
Ed met us upon arrival; no problem communicating with him. I can't comment on the apartment shown in this webpage, because Ed placed us in a different apartment on the first floor of the building. My wife and I had stayed in that apartment in October, 2013. The host of that apartment is listed as Dan. I asked Ed about the change and he said that he and Dan worked together in renting apartments. That said the apartment that Ed was sufficient for our needs. We didn't spend much time in the apartment during the day. The apartment was clean. Since we stayed two and a half weeks, Ed gaves us a change of sheets and towels half way through our stay. The main draw back of the apartment is that the bed is a "full" and not a queen. As the other reviewers have said about the location of the apartments that Ed and Dan have, Ditmars/Steinway is a great neighborhood. There are many good and interesting restaurants and plenty of shopping for necessities and beyond.
Our Airbnb experience with Ed was very good. The neighborhood was very nice; a family area with schools, stores, and restaurants. We felt very safe, the area was very quiet (with the exception of a family party Saturday night); you wouldn't know you were 2 miles from Manhattan. The train into the city was about 10 blocks away, the area is served by a multitude of bars, supermarkets, and restaurants.
The only drawback is if you have a car, parking was a frustrating experience mon-fri.
We needed this VERY last minute-- we booked Thursday and I picked up the keys Friday! Ed was easy to work with, the apartment was immaculate and the location was amazing. Close to the train, near good restaurants-- it was perfect! It is a 2 bedroom with a futon. The kitchen table is appropriately sized (I hate staying places where there is no place to sit and eat!) and it was meticulously clean.
Ed was very easy to work with, I would not just recommend the location but him as a person to work with. I will definitely be letting my friends that visit the area know about this great spot.
