The host canceled my reservation 4 days before arrival.
The host was missing in action when I arrived in NYC....even though we'd confirmed everything as recently as 6 days before my arrival. Neither airbnb or I was able to reach her, even the next day. It really caused problems...... Airbnb was terrific however.....they helped me find another apartment the next day and refunded all my $$ from the first disaster.
The host never showed up to give me the key and even if I called on her mobile, all I got was her answering machine. I had travelled 10 hours from Greece & couldn't find alternative accommodation in NY as it was a weekend, so I had to take a return flight home. I should sue this woman for total irresponsibility.
The host canceled my reservation the day of arrival.
Toni was extremely warm and welcoming - giving us a full guided tour at 2:00 am after our flight was delayed (and being relaxed about our constant updates over expected arrival time). The flat is absolutely gorgeous and in a great area - on three major subway lines (4,5,6), near Central Park and 2 mins walk from Museum Mile. Very much recommended.
Nous avons adoré aller chez Toni! A chaque mail envoyé Toni a répondu tout de suite et de façon très complète. Le soir de notre arrivée Toni nous a accueilli chaleureusement, malgré l'heure tardive. L'appartement était parfait, décoration très soignée. Nous avons adoré le quartier, avec de nombreux commerces et restaurants, et pas envahi de touristes.
Nous recommandons vivement l 'appartement de Toni !
Toni's lovely apartment was just perfect for my 2-nite stay for a business trip.
The neighborhood is very convenient to the metro, just a short 5-block hike to the #6, making getting around utterly simple, and the locale is quiet, safe and pleasant. There are many restaurants and cafés nearby, so getting off to an easy start in the morning is simple and enjoyable.
The apartment was spotless and cheerful, and furnished in a relaxed and completely comfortable way. Plenty of space for one person. Too bad the weather wasn't better, or I would have availed myself of her beautiful deck. Once the warm weather really settles in, it will be a fantastic addition. I did enjoy the view out the window into the enclosed garden below where a spectacular pink magnolia was in flower. Birds sang, and it was quiet and peaceful -- lovely!
Toni provided clean linens, internet connection, and even made her computer available although with a smart phone, I didn't need it. She also welcomed me to use her kitchen, which I certainly would have done if I had been staying for a longer visit -- it is very well equipped.
Toni herself is a charmer -- warm and welcoming, supremely helpful, providing so many little touches such as menus to a range of local internationally-flavored take-out establishments, and directions here and there. I wanted to take extra special care of her dear home because she certainly felt more like a friend than a hosteler. It is my hope that I can stay at her apartment when I come to the city again -- for the pleasure of catching up with her as much as having a fine base of operations. Best wishes, Toni!
Toni's place was perfect. My friend and i needed a place to stay minute and Toni saved the day! I would recommend her place to anyone.
I had the most wonderful time in Toni's apartment. It's very cozy, beautifully decorated, clean and warm. Lounging on the roof deck beats doing anything else in New York city on a sunny afternoon :-)
I would love to stay again, I instantly felt at home here.
Great location too, with good communications. Thanks Toni!
What a great place to stay in the city. What can I say? Toni's place is clean, quiet, and just perfect. Soon as I stepped in I was right at home. Toni's place is all it is advertised to be and certainly understated. This the number one place to stay for sure.
