Everything as expected.
Sunny, clean, modern. Stunning position.
Renato and Noel have been super nice indeed.
Living like a New Yorker (well... for 8 days :D ) has been great.
Gonna come back, if and when we'll visit NYC again!
Thanks so much Michele. You have been a great guest ;)
The appartment looked exactly like the photos. It is a bit older than it seems, though. But it wasn't an issue at all.
Renato was great with providing us all the info prior to arriving. His assistant met us at the place upon arrival.
The apt. is great, located close to the subway 6 line on Lex.&77th. Also many grocery stores and lots of delis and restaurants.
The bed is comfortable, there are towels provided and everything was very very clean. Very recommended!
Thanks so much :)
El departamento posee una ubicación excelente! Y el departamento es muy confortable y como se ve en las fotos.
Si vuelvo a NY seguro tratare de volver a ese departamento.
El anfitrión super amable, gracias!
The apartment was exactly as pictured and very clean. The area was perfect in that there were plenty of places to get necessities and food (Al Forno Pizzeria was so good we went twice!) and it felt very safe. Subway access was easy to figure out as well. Other than typical street noise it was very quiet in the building itself. Noel was also extremely accommodating and easy to work with and get in touch with, and with this being out first Airbnb experience, I couldn't have asked for more.
The only negatives about the apartment could be fixed with a screwdriver and a mirror. The dresser, table and chairs were wobbly like they just needed screws tightened, and since there's no outlet in the bathroom, it would have been nice to have a mirror somewhere near an outlet. I would also add that the sofa bed is pretty small, best for young kids or just one adult.
All told, this was definitely a great experience and we will certainly use Airbnb again!
Thanks a lot Taren.
Tout était parfaitement conforme à l'annonce et à ce qui avait été décrit par le propriétaire lors des nos échanges avant l'acceptation de notre réservation.
Ce que nous avons aimé :
1) Localisation : être dans le même block que l'Empire State Building est idéal, surtout pour une première visite où l'on s'intéresse aux activités touristiques majeures de Manhattan ou pour un voyage dédié au shopping (traverser la rue pour déposer les sacs Macy's quand ceux-ci deviennent trop lourd est on ne peut plus appréciable... :-)).
2) Sentiment de sécurité : entrée de très bon standing avec gardiens 24/24h, qui plus est très sympathiques et disponibles.
3) Calme relatif de l'appartement : les fenêtres ne donnent pas sur la rue ; l'isolation est suffisante pour n'être dérangé que par les ambulances et autres véhicules à sirène.
4) Appartement très fonctionnel : tout le nécessaire est présent (de la vaisselle en nombre plus que confortable au sèche cheveux), literie confortable et accordée aux linges de bain fournis.
5) Disponibilité de Renato : réponse quasi-immédiate aux quelques mails qui ont été échangés pendant le séjour (Renato s'est assuré de notre bonne arrivée, puis a gentillement accepté un check-out tardif vu que cela nous arrangeait p.r. à nos vols).
6) Prix : correct compte tenu de la ville ; nous avons été contraints de prendre une nuit d'hôtel du fait d'incompatibilité de calendrier entre nos vols et les disponibilités de Renato ; hôtel 3* situé à un block de là, 320$ la nuit (petit déjeuner compris certes, mais de piètre qualité).
Merci Robin ;)
Position, position, position is the mantra of real estate market in the US, especially in NYC. And position of Renato's apt is very good, located in a residential area is not noisy during the night (of course compared with time square and midtown) just few blocks from the metro station, 10 min by walk from central park and the museum mile (mets, guggenheim, etc): is a nice "logistic" base for a trip in NYC.
The apt is exactly as described and Renato always answered in very short time to questions, messages or e-mails, although we have not met him, but his (very kind) assistant Noel.
All the best
Pasamos dos excelentes semanas en el apartamento. Al llegar todo estaba impecable, limpio, perfecto. La vajilla completa, la cocina bien equipada, el baño muy bien, las camas muy cómodas y excelente calefacción. Es un departamento ideal para 2 personas y cómodo para tres . Muy bien ubicado, a 5 metros del subway y cerca de todo. Renato siempre fue muy amable, como no tuvimos ningún problema no lo necesitamos, pero siempre respondió con mucha rapidez y cortesía. Sin duda, una elección muy recomendable.!
Muchas gracias Pedro!!
Renato's apt is very nice and well located next to Times Square and the subway. Noel was helpful and she was already in the apt when we are landed in NY. No problem during our stay.
We recommand this place
Merci Pierre ;)
We had a great time un NYC. Apt location was good (it would have been even better if the closest subway station was an express and not a local with many stops!) Neighbourhood was nice and quiet compared to lively midtown. Apt was well furnished, pictures are reliable. There are several small things to be fixed (very easily!!) which would make this apt even nicer. Time has left some traces ! Noises from the street and upper appartement didnt prevent us from sleeping. Renato and Noel were very helpful hosts. We recommand this appartment.
We stayed for a week at Renato's apartment. Renato's assistant called us before catching our flight to plan our arrival, and was there to meet us and show us the apartment.
The place was really well located, subway a couple of minutes away, places to eat all around and times square right there. Despite the cold weather, the apartment was really warm. The only minus are the stairs, specially when having to carry the bags, but you get used to them soon.
We had no problems during our stay, everything worked well. A recomended place.
thanks so much!
I´ve traveled to NYC for about 10 days with my girlfriend, on December 2013.
After months pursuiting a place to stay during our stay on NY, We´ve found Renato´s apt on Airbnb.
Renato was helpful since we had the first contact. He let us simply comfortable to all the doubts we had, be it of your apartment, or something in relation to the neighborhood, or the airbnb site.
The apartment fits incredibly to our stay. Everything was like he told us. We had a lot of facilities near the building, The location is perfect, with a little walk we have Times Square, Empire State, Grand Central Terminal, Train station, 5th Avenue and Broadway. Everything fits amazing for us.
The doormen of the building were always attentive to us whenever we need.
Renato was always ready to help us if there are some doubts or urgency.
We´re just waiting for our next time in NYC, and for sure, we´ll be staying again on Renato's apartment.
Thanks a lot Renato, wish you the best!!!
RENATO IS HONEST, RELIABLE AND EFFICIENT.
HIS NYC APARTMENT IS SUPER NICE AND A VERY CLEAN PLACE!
THE APARTMENT IS ALSO EXACTLY AS ADVERTISED.
YOU'LL ENJOY DEALING WITH RENATO ON A PERSONAL LEVEL+ HIS GREAT PLACE!
I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM WITHOUT RESERVATION, AS A HOST OR AS A GUEST.
A dear person, really friendly and helpful.
Ready to help in every way with all the positives italianity!
Absolutely recommended be hosted by him!
I met Renato in NY, he was a friend of a friend. I have to say that when he is around you can be sure that you are going to have fun! Besides, he knows a lot of cool places in (email hidden)d how to get in! He is always very helpful, kind and reliable and i am sure that he is a great host. You can't go wrong with Renato!
I met Renato through a mutual friend, and he is a super cool guy! Absolutely a lot of fun to hang out with, as he knows all the great places in NYC. Any one lucky enough to have Renato as a host will have an experience better than any hotel in the world!
reanto is a friend form lot of years. Although we can't be in touch or we can't see face to face because he lives and works in New York and i live in Rome, everytime we start to talk, write, exchange experiences and projects he is there helping you, recommending you, informing you. It's not surprising for me he is in concierge business. He's a perfect "concierge-man"! Trust on him!
I met Renato through AirBnB whilst looking for a place to stay in NYC. Whilst I didn't end up staying at Renato's apartment (due to another party booking before I had finalised my plans) we have kept in contact with Renato providing some valuable guidance for the area before I arrived, a contact whilst over there if I needed some advice and just a good chat every now and then. He is an all-round genuine, driven, enterprising and intersting guy. Thanks again Renato and we'll keep in touch!
Renato is highly organized, efficient, extremely competent, and has an excellent rapport with people of all nations. He is a tremendous asset to have for a friend and a brother from another family..... He is a kind gentle soul, very respectful, considerate and celebrates life in the present. I recommend him for a friend or roommate to you without reservation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Renato is a very nice guy. I was his guest a couple of times and always treated me very well. Very clean and tidy, friendly and fun person to hang out with.
