we are a young French couple, working in marketing in NY.
It´s a amazing place. Perfect location location, in the middle of all. The Terrace has a great view to enjoy the end of the day. The only incovinient is the stairs. If you plan shopping a lot, like us, thats will be a problem.
Quel emplacement ! Placé idéalement à Chelsea, ce petit duplex est entre deux métros (trois lignes) et à 5/10 minutes à pied de la High Line, du Chelsea Market, de Broadway et du quartier en plein développement de Meatpacking. Supermarché à proximité, caviste (pour trouver une bonne bouteille de vin), boutiques diverses, Starbuck pour ceux qui veulent y prendre leur petit-déjeuner pas loin... Idéal pour un couple ou avec deux enfants. Wifi nickel. 5e étage sans ascenseur, ce qui est courant pour New York et qui fait un bon échauffement avant de partir découvrir la ville. Appartement bien équipé avec terrasse dont on peut profiter dés les premiers rayons de soleil. Facile à trouver et tout a parfaitement bien fonctionné. Nous le conseillons vivement et nous y retournerons dés que possible tellement NYC est une ville magique ! Pierrick & Maud
The apartment is super cute, and you really can't beat the location. My only complaint is that there was no hot water in the shower, which wasn't mentioned in the description.
Altogether a good stay in Alexis's apartment.
We couldn't enjoy the very nice terrace (it was too cold). The place is not so big so if you are more than 2 you have to be quite good friends,
before I arrive I forget about the stairs (there is no elevator) and it is at the 5th floor.
Otherwise very practical location on 14th street, very close to all subway stops. It is very easy to go anywhere from there.
Alexis's apartment was clean and fonctional.
The location of Alexis' place is certainly one of the most convenient starting points to discover Manhattan. Meatpacking, Chelsea and the village are at 5 to 10 minutes walking distance and getting to midtown takes only 10 minutes by subway.
The apartment is cosy, arty and well furnished, perfect for a couple.
The terrace must be lovely during spring and summer as it was already very nice covered by snow!
Check in and check out went very easily thanks to Alexis' precise indications and his doorman just next door.
Only point of improvement: the kind of old equipment such as heating and shower system would deserve a refreshment as well as the towels or the bed linen.
We have nevertheless spent a marvelous week in this apartment and would not hesitate one second renting it again.
We spent a great weekend in NYC. The appartment was perfect and the location is great.
Great apartment. Amazing roof. Spacious and clean. Extra large bathroom too. Felt like home.
Perfect location, fantastic apartment. We loved our stay here and I'd definitely recommend it!
Fantastic! We stayed at Alexis apartment for a little over 5 weeks from late December 2012 through to the end of January 2013, and we throughly loved being able to call his apartment home. His apartment offers views of NYC, is very secure and has plenty of kitchen utensils to allow for home cooking. Although the kitchen (bench) space is rather limited, so cooking can be somewhat difficult - but still sufficient.
Alexis was a great host, who responded to all of our email queries very promptly. The apartment is perfectly located to explore NYC with each of the boroughs only a short walk or subway ride away. We had no problems at all with noise. The only thing we would say is that this aparment complex does not have a lift and Alexis' place is on the top floor (5th), so be prepared to walk up and down the stairs each day. But in all honesty this is not an issue.
But we loved this place and truly did not want to leave. Based on our experience we would, without any doubt, recommend both Alexis as a host and this apartment.
appartement agérable, idéalement situé, en plein coeur de là où tout ce passe en ce moment à NY. nombreux restaurants, bars ou clubs très sympa à proximité.
des stations de métro de chaque côté de la rue permettent de rayonner facilement dans la ville.
Alexis came with his collegue to attend a big trade show in Düsseldorf. Communication and contacts were excellent, everything was fine, the apartment was left in perfect condition.
Thank you again for staying here. It would be a pleasure to welcome you again !
PS: If we come to New York one day, may be for the marathon, we will remember you being a host ,too, and get in touch.
Aléxis have booked in the very last minute so probably this caused a bit difficult communication, otherwise no problem, flexible nice people.
Alexis stayed with his wife in my apartment for 5 days.Last 3 days my neighbours called me and warned me about the noises coming from my apartment.Last night he was totally drunk and beat his wife and throw her out of the apartment only with her (website hidden)ıghbours protected her from him.Later she locked herself to the apartment.He shouldered and kicked the door and broke it.Later we called police and he was arrested.
We faced 700-800euro damage in the apartment.
** A note for the potential next owners: Dont rent your apartment to him.
Ce fut un réel plaisir d'accueillir ce beau couple énergique, respectueux et attentionné. A bientôt j'espère, à NYC ou ici!
