We are a NYC-based couple that loves meeting new people and experiencing the everyday opportunities of life.
Kendra & Chen have a beautifal place and for me, it was extremely convenient. Walking distance to multiple T stops, and cabs drove by my place all the time.
Everything in the apartment felt new and top-of-the-line. The fridge, stove, dishwasher, flat-screen televisions, everything was current and great to use!
The furniture was extremely comfortable, as was the bed. The bathroom was clean & spacious, the shower was pleasant.
Only a few small quirks that kept it from 5 stars:
-Kendra somewhat panicked on the first night of me checking in, calling/texting me multiple times and making complaints to AirBnB.
-The living room glass table has a chunk missing, and made me afraid to use it all month. Needs to be replaced.
-The place is cold due to the patio doors letting out heat. The heater is somewhat noisey.
-The HDTV does not have an HD package.
Other than those points, overall I had a great experience! Kendra's sister Brooke lived down the street, and met with me several times during the month to help me out (a couple times bringing me extra keys when I locked myself out).
I highly recommend.
The apartment and location were great with easy access to the rest of Manhatten. Great hosts who were very generous and offered advice to explore the City. I would not hesitate to stay with them again.
The host canceled my reservation the day before arrival.
Everything was fantastic from location to the building and the apartment. Best stay in nyc so far.
I would definitely not recommend this apt. The apt is barely 700 sq feet, not the 1500 they claim. It was very unclean, with dust on everything, and food crumbs throughout the kitchen. The "white" sofa was covered in stains. And the statement sleeps 4 is a complete lie. The other sleeping place is that dirty couch which they charge an extra $48 a night for. Plus they had all their clothes and shoes in the closets so we had no where to unpack. DO NOT STAY HERE.
Chen and Kendra were great hosts. Very generous and offered advice to explore the City. I would not hesitate to stay with them again in their "City Chic Studio."
Look no further! This is a GREAT condo,with WONDERFUL hosts. The condo is in a very safe area, and just a short walk to subway. I will stay with Chen & Kendra on our next trip to NYC.
We just returned from our 5 day stay at the Chic City Studio. The studio is in a great Wall Street Location with easy access to all subway lines just a few blocks away. Chen and Kendra are great hosts and we are looking forward to our next NYC visit.
Sorry for the very late review. Three of us stayed in the condo over a year ago. It was exactly what we were looking for, a nice place to stay, great location, clean, and private. Chen and Kendra were super friendly and are right across the hall. It was a fabulous girls trip. We do plan to visit again! - Katherine, Leona, and Sadie
We sublet Kendra and Chen's apartment for a client staying in New York for a number of weeks. Though our guest was visiting from out of the country, he felt right at home! Kendra and Chen were very accessible and helpful, and we will definitely turn to them again for our company's out of town guests.
