Chris is very nice and quite accommodating. He met us quite early to keys and show us the apartment. He stayed in touch and was easy to reach.
Location is great - incredibly convenient to reach subways heading throughout town, and less than a block off Times Square. Outside noise was fairly quiet considering the location. The apartment was quite large for its location, but a little spartan. It was more than enough for our short stay in NYC.
My husband and I stayed at Chris's place over a weekend while I was at a conference. Chris was an excellent, friendly host, who met us at the apartment to show us around and give us the key. He was always easily reached by text. The apartment was just what we needed: a clean, comfortable, conveniently located home base from which to explore Manhattan. We would definitely stay here again.
This apartment was in a really great location in the Murray Hill district of Manhattan. Close to Grand Central Station, the UN, and the Empire State Building. There were quite a few great places to eat nearby, so we didn't have any problem finding food.
We arrived an hour or so later than initially expected but Chris was kind enough to wait around for us so that we could be accomodated.
Great location, easy check in and check out. Would definitely stay again.
This apartment is well-located, but a bit spartan in nature. It reliably checks off all the boxes for a comfortable place to lay one's head for the night. Chris was easy to work with and responsive.
Flew in during some nasty winter weather, and ended up with a delayed flight. Chris worked with us to make sure we could get into the apartment and checked in when we needed.
It was a clean and comfortable place to crash -- exactly what we needed. Because of our odd check in, we never found the full instructions on how to set the heater, but that didn't really matter (and I never pestered Chris about it), as it was actually a comfortable temperature inside. That alone is fairly rare.
Never got a chance to use the fully furnished kitchen, aside from the fridge, but all was clean and kept up. The building and the neighborhood are nice and quiet, and there really wasn't too much loud road noise either.
We'd happily stay again if we find ourselves in need of a comfortable room in Murray Hill.
Chris's place is ideally located in Murray Hill, right around great bars and restaurants! The place itself had plenty of room and was more than enough for the two of us! Chris kept fresh towels ready for us and made sure the bathroom had full stock! He was a great host and was extremely patient with me when i was running late to meet him! I fully recommend his place to anyone, great location and great host!
Chris is a great host. He gave me an extensive run down of the apt. The place is in the best area. Short cab ride to LGA, great food, great shopping. It's a perfect no frills apartment and great price.
The only thing I would mention is there is no outlet in the bathroom which made doing my hair difficult in the morning for work. So just a heads up ladies.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this mid town apartment in manhattan. The location was great you could walk most places and the subway was only a few blocks if you need to go further. The apartment itself is simple but has everything you need while you are away and the supermarket a block down the street was convenient for food shopping.
Chris was a great host and adapted when our bus arrived over an hour late. Would recommend this place if you are a couple looking for an apartment in manhattan.
The appartment has a perfect location, you can go walking from there to times square in aproximatelly 15 or 20 minutes, it is really close to the Central Station where you can take the line of train or Subway that you want and go over around all New York, I never met Chris Umbach in person but he was in constant comunication with us, and that is really important for people who is travelling, in despite he makes our travel really easy, the price is really good in comparation with hotels and other kind of stablishments near the zone, and the room is also really big, we was three people and we had not any space problem.
When we arrived we found the bed and the sheets dirty but I think it was because the person in charge to clean them thougth we would arrive more late than we really did, however she clean them for it and bougth a new towels for us, We really enjoy in the flat of Chris and I recomend it, I will travel to New York and another time and unless I will find another place better than this I will choose Chris appartment for sure.
In a escale from one to ten, the place has a 8,5, valorating the price, the location and the space as its better points. Thank you Chris for everything.
