Matthieu was very nice, though we only communicated by email. He sent me all of the information I needed to get into the apartment and enjoy it and the neighborhood. He also contacted me upon arrival to make sure everything was okay, and responded quickly to the few questions I had during our week there. The apartment is beautiful, with breathtaking views of the city from the living area and the bedroom. The apt. was reasonably clean, and it was great to pick up the key from the doorman, and have that sense of security in the building. The location can't be beat -- less than a block from Central Park West, with lots of good restaurants, plus any other sort of store you would want, in the area. Easy metro connections as well. The street itself is elegant and quiet though again, quite central -- just a few minutes' walk to Lincoln Center.
Back to the apartment: it has all of the amenities, including well-stocked fridge, two widescreen t.v.s (if you get bored with New York!) and an efficient laundry room in the basement. Be warned that there is no iron, so if you wash clothes you can't iron them. Also, it was fine for my kids to sleep on an airbed in the living room (a good quality, comfortable airbed), but this apt. would not really work for two couples travelling together. Fine for families.
We had a great time, found the host courteous and professional, and would stay again!
Great location. Beautiful apartment. We had a great time. Thanks!
We had a fantasic weekend in matthieu's apartment! located just a block's walk to Central Park with easy street
parking, this large clean apt with gorgeous views was the perfect home base for a fun weekend visit with our one year old, who we took to the children's zoo and to ride the central park carousel, both a short walk from the apt. matthieu's detailed instructions provided a smooth entry into and out of the apt. he even shipped a little toy back that our son left under the bed.. we hope to come back in the near future... highly recommend!!
Matthieu's apartment is absolutely beautiful! Amazing view. Matthieu was very helpful before and during our visit.
Matthieu was an excellent host. He left detailed information about the apartment. It has amazing views and is quite comfortable. It is a very nice building with lobby staff to greet you and help you if needed. We will definitely stay again.
My family and I would rate our experience at Matthieu's apt. a 5. It was great. It's in the middle of everywhere and the apt. is beautiful. New Years Eve was great ! You can see the fireworks from Matthieu's living room. It's breath taking!

We were three people staying at Matthieu's appartment, and it's perfect up to 4 people. The skiline from the house is incredible, and you'll be able to be in Times Square after a nice 20 mins walk. It was our first time in airbnb and Matthieu provided us with a detailed list of suggestions to reach the appartment after arriving at JFK, use the TV, the kitchen, and the rest of his stuff.
Five stars appartment is a perfect location in NY. We'll go back!.
Our family of 4 had the time of our life in NYC last week. A big part of it was staying at Matthieu's appartment. We highly recommend it. It's super safe, very clean, has everything you need and location and views are fantastic! Food Emporium right around the corner, central park and subway just one block away. Great restaurants nearby. Communication with Matthieu was very easy and quick. He immediately responded to all our emails and gave us detailed information for our stay. He thought of everything, so we did not have to call him once for further questions.
We were lucky to meet him in person and got to know a perfect host! Very sad we had to leave...Wish this appartment was ours! ;-) Thanks again for everything! We will be back!
Matthieu was a great guest! He left my apartment in excellent condition. And I am pleased to hear they enjoyed there stay.
Great guests. Easy clear communication and they took great care of the cabin during their stay. Come back anytime. - Matt
Matthieu was a wonderful guest! Very polite and clean. No problems at all; I'd recommend him to any airbnb host. He's definitely welcome to come back to my place in Vancouver.
