Tina is a great host, very accessible and has very good tipps where to go and what to see in NY! The appartment is cosy, everything was clean. We can warmly recommend Tinas place!
Tina is a lovely host. She welcomed us on arrival and was so friendly and helpful and gave us some great local info on what to see. The apartment is charming - we definitely felt like we stayed in a true NYC apartment. Would definitely stay at Tina's place again.
We had a wonderful stay at Tina’s apartment in September 2013. Tina is a great host, she was very understanding about our flight delay and helpful in giving us some hints concerning best places to visit. The apartment is in a very conveninet location, close to Grand Central, midtown is within the walking distance. The apartment itself is very comfortable and neat. Only drawback is that it can get really noisy because of the morning traffic. The neighborhood itself is very comfortable with many convenient stores, bars, pubs and diners. We really enyojed our stay!
Nuestra estancia en new York fue fantástica y Tina se portó genial con nosotros. El apartamento está muy céntrico y es un buen sitio para ir de vacaciones y visitar la ciudad. Muy recomendable
Tina is a great host and very accessible. The apartment is a perfect size and has everyhting you need. We had a great stay. Thank you!
My partner and I really enjoyed our stay in Tinas apartment. It's a nice old apartment with everything you need and Tina is a good guide if you have any questions. Only down side is it's loud when you have the windows open - closed is fine.
(I read that she had a loud cat in one of the earlier reviews and will let people know that it's no longer there)
Tina's place was great! A great location and a true new york apartment. The only downside was her cat that meowed a lot! Overall though we had an amazing stay. We definitely recommend staying with her!
Tinas Apt ist a true NYC Apt. We had a great time and directly felt at home. The Neigbourhood is nice with lots of restaurants and bars.
Tina was very friendly and directly responded to all questions and even wrote us a list with recommendations and places to see.
I would definetly go back.
it was a pleasure to meet tina and to be gast in her appartement. the appartement is really close to grand central station and 5th avenue and also there is a bus station in front of the house that brings you downtown to 2nd avenue 1st street where is a good spot to go out for dinner and drinks. the appartement is in the 5th floor and directly under the rooftop which is a nice place to go up and pause a second.
we really enjoyed the stay!
the only problems we had was the internet that didn`t worked with our own laptops...we had to go to mc donalds arround the corner to check them.
The apartment has an excellent location, you can go wherever in Manhattan by subway. The Central Station is within 5-10 minutes walking. The neighbourhood is good as well, you have some restaurantes nearby like subway, mcdonalds, sushi etc. There is also a mini market next door where you can buy food and drink and the supermarket is 2 blocks away.
Tina gave us a NYC guide and it was really useful, she left many brochures from restaurants also to order food at home.
The cats aren't bad but they aren't clean at all, we found poop on the kitchen table once and we had to clean vomit like 4 times because one of them seemed to be sick. Because of this we didn't like to cook or even to eat at home and we didn't use the sofa because we found vomit there also.
The windows have no blinds or dark curtains, so the neighbours can see you at any time in the bedroom and the kitchen.
It is a 5th floor without elevator, it wasn't a problem for us but you should be aware of it.
I do recommend Tina's place if you are looking for a well located place to sleep, but not to spend much time there.
