very nice place but i was misquoted overall pricing for my stay. other than that Helio is very nice and hospitable
The Helio's apartment is very nice and clean, easy to find and in a sure district.
Its situation is close to the center of Manhattan with the metro (around 15'). You can join the JFK Airport up to the apartment with the metro and the JFK airtrain so it's less expensive than taxi.
Helio is a very pleasant person, who is always here to answer if we need informations or ask questions.
He speaks a little the french language if you don't speak english very well.
You can use all his electrical appliances (with Helio's agreement), like the washing machine, the microwave or all others equipments.
The spare room and the second bathroom is only for you and are very clean, so there is no problem with them.
I have to only recommend this apart and Helio, you'll really have no problem with this renting, you'll do a very good choice it's sure!
Nota Bene : Helio has a little dog, its very nice too.
This was our first experience with AirBnB. Helio made it a perfect one. We wanted to be near our daughter's school Pratt Institute and Helio's apartment was perfected situated just two short blocks away. the building has a door man. The neighborhood is safe, Bus and subway transport only 2 blocks away. Loads of small cafes, restaurants and bars within walking distance.
Helio's appartment was clean and comfortable. He gave us a key to come and go as we pleased, and although we didn't use them we had the use of the kitchen and the living room if we wanted. The bedroom and bathroom were spotless. Towels were provided. That bed was so comfortable! Yes he does have a dog but she (Stella) is as accommodating and welcoming as her owner :-) We would definitely stay here again!!
L'appartement est très agréable, très bien situé prés d'une station de métro et de différents petits commerces.
L'accueil d'Hélio et de son chien était sympathique .
Helio is a very hospitable host - friendly and accommodating. We were quite comfortable during our stay and felt sure any question or concern would be attended to--and that was reassurring for our first airbnb stay not sure what to expect. It is a very secure building close to bus or subway and worked very well for our stay!
My stay was great! My only wish was that I had booked it longer! The host was accommodating and helpful. I was given a key to the unit and to the building. Good wifi.
I was put in the master bedroom because the advertised room was unavailable. This meant my room was larger and had a full bathroom ensuite.
All parts of the apartment was tidy and clean. The location is good. It is a few blocks from the G and has views of Downtown Brooklyn from the room. The resident dog was cute and quiet and stayed out of my room. I highly recommend this gem!
We had a great time in Helio's flat!
Room & flat is very clean, cosy and quiet.
Location is convenient to go wherever you want in Manhattan & Brooklyn.
Finally Helio was very helpfull for everything (book taxi, interesting place to see or eat in NY, etc). Exactly what we needed!
I will definitely recomend it this place.
My girlfriend and I had a very great time at Helio's place. The room is full of light, clean & large enough for 2. There's the G subway 2 blocks away, that will take you wherever you wanna go 24/24;) Helio is very cool & will help you if you have any question (do not hesitate to ask, you will be suprised by his rapid answer!). It was our first experience with airbnb, and I will definitely do it again :)
You wanna visit Big Apple? Try Helio's bedroom, you will find your happiness ;) Thank you again!
This was our first experience using Airbnb and thankfully we couldn’t have asked for a better host than Helio! He was incredible. We stayed at his place for almost two weeks and we felt like home!
Since our first inquiries he responded on the spot giving us the most accurate information he could about his apartment, the neighborhood, transportation and local places for food and shopping.
The apartment is very accurately described, very comfortable bedroom with a great bed and private bathroom. The apartment is impeccably clean and we were provided with fresh towels and sheets. Helio even left us a duvet one night when the temperature dropped! We were welcomed to use anything we wanted (kitchen, dining table, living room, washer – dryer) although we were barely there during the day.
The neighborhood is very nice with convenient train and bus stops about two blocks away. Access to manhattan is pretty fast depending on where you want to go. It´s very safe and has a police station a block away. There are lots of supermarkets nearby that have everything you can think of. There are also great places to eat within walking distance; our favorite place for breakfast was Choice Market about a block away from the train. Excellent coffee and waffles!
I definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to travel to New York. You’ll get the best of Manhattan and Brooklyn in one package!
Thank you Helio for being so kind and welcoming to us, we loved to relax and chat with you and your friends after a long day of walking. We hope to see you again soon and we will definitely keep in touch. Say hi to Stella (Helios Beagle) for us!
Gracias y abrazo!
Helio really helped me out at short notice. Another host had cancelled and Helio offered to put me up. And in all honesty I could not have asked for more. The room was great: comfy bed, clean linens and enough desk and closet space to stow all my stuff. There was heat and A/C should I have needed it and everything was clean and tidy on my arrival. I had the sole use of the bathroom, with Helio using the on-sweet, perfect for those that enjoy their privacy, and towels were provided. Helio was away working for most of my stay but kept in touch and his friends were great: showing me the neighbourhood and answering my questions. The apartment is close to the Classon subway stop (one block up, one over) so even if you are kept waiting for the G train it only meant a 30 minute commute for me into Greenwich Village. Thanks!
