I am from Tel Aviv, Israel. I live in NY for the last 7 years and I am trained Chef and in Training photographer. I love art, movies, and good food.
The reservation was canceled 14 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Idan is a nice friendly and helpful guy, with lot of interests. Love the room - very cozy, with lot of natural light. And the apartment location can't be beat - just round a corner to the M train.
I had an amazing time! Thank you Idan ! :)
We stayed for 8 days in NY, there were 4 of us, 2 couples which was perfect for the apartment which has 2 bedrooms with 2 big beds.
The apartment is comfortable for that people, and posibly one more person too. Bathroom is a little small, but that is not a problem at all. Only one issue with the drain in the tub which took a long time to evacuate the water after you took a shower, but nothing else.
If I have to remark one thing about the apartment is that the location is amathing!! there is a subway stop in the corner of the apartment (only half a block walking distance) and in that stop you have a subway line that takes you uptown and downtond manhatan and also to JFK air train stop!! talk about conveniance!! but not only that , it also is the stop to the L line which takes you across manhattan to take all other lines wherever you want to go. Location is really great! around the apartment there are many stores, grocery shops, great restaurants and pubs.
We had a fantastic time in Idan´s place!
Estuvimos en Nueva York durante una semana en Abril/2013.
Lo mejor del apartamento es su ubicación; está al lado de una boca de metro que te permite desplzarte por todo Manhatan.
Respecto al apartamento, es correcto y cuando llegamos estaba limpio. Salíamos a la mañana y volvíamos para a la noche, por lo que solo lo aprovechamos para dormir. Es cierto que una de las habitaciones da a la calle y, por tanto, es ruidosa, pero tiene fácil soución.
El último día Idan nos permitió salir más tarde, con lo que pudimos aprovechar al mácimo el último día sin tener que preocuparnos por las maletas.
Great location, good sized bedrooms, worth the money.
The apartment is clearly just a place to sleep but it does the job ! Towels have been changed and were clean. Overall I found the apartment very clean. The apartment is very poor in equipments but if you are only looking for a place to crash then it's for you. The location is perfect! Subway is literally downstairs the apartment and the neighborhood is one of the best of NYC. I would stay in again for a friend trip. Also Idan allows late check out which is very convenient to enjoy your last day in NYC.
The location is excellent, right in the middle of Chelsea, very close to a subway station and just everything you need.
Idan was really nice– he answered our mails quickly and was helpful.
The kitchen in the apartment was functional, the heat worked just fine and the Wifi worked okay. Unlike what we've read – it wasn't noisy at all.
The apartment could look nicer if it will re-paint, we told Idan so, and he promised to paint shortly.
Over all it's a great apartment, and we would like to visit there again.
The apartment could be a bit more clean and furnished. No coffee machine, very few possibilities to put the clothes in the rooms, one chair more would be nice.
The heating was not working so well, either too warm or too cold. (no heating in the bathroom). The towels and the bed sheets really need to be changed (there were big stains on them), and the bathtub got blocked.
The apartment is cheap but not worth it.
This is a very good value in a great location. We were here to work, so we were just looking for a place to sleep and this was perfect. It would not be a good place for someone who wants to lounge around and watch tv,, tiny couch and no chairs, and the tv is Apple with few choices. Idan was very easy to communicate with, seems like a great guy. Key pickup and drop off is at the cake shop downstairs, not all of the employees of the bakery knew about the keys so there was some confusion. I would stay here again on a work trip.
The passing of Christmas and New Year in New York was wonderful!! I have no words to describe ...
However the apartment and left much to be desired! Let the points:
Pros: great location, close to many restaurants and several subways, the neighborhood is very nice and charming!
Cons: the apartment was not clean enough, the refrigerator was not cleaned well enough for these reasons had no desire to cook in the apartment. The living room couch was very stained, the apple tv did not work, try listening to a cd in the dvd player, but this also did not work. We can not turn on the radio. In the bathroom had tiles around the tub that were falling, we had to stick them with a ribbon for each time bringing dirt fell and left a hole in the wall exposed.
The heater did not work always, and made a lot of noise in the two rooms. The larger room had curtains stained and transparent, not being able to sleep completely in the dark as it gives to the intersection with the 8 to 16 st which is quite bright and noisy. The decor is very simple and the walls need a beautiful painting and repair of multiple nail holes that are scattered through the rooms. The lighting also left something to be desired.
Well, finally the apartment is not as seen in the photos. Perhaps it was interesting that there was a policy a bit more rigorous Airbnd regarding the dissemination of images that unfortunately ends up becoming what we see only in fantasy.
Idan and his friend were delightful house guests in every way. I hope they come back some time.
We love Idan. He is one of the nicest friendliest people that I know....and obviously a great cook! Please look him up and enjoy a great stay in Bushwich!.....AGENTQ
Idan is a great guy! warm, easy going, very friendly.
He's a talented chef/artist, curious about the world and others.
I think you'll find him a great guest and host.
I met Idan when we were both visiting another person's home. So I got to know Idan as a person and as a guest. Idan is gracious, worldly, respectful and a wonderful photographer -- capturing the heart of friends and the experiences the world has to offer.
