Great location for that price.
Notre commentaire fait suite à notre message, envoyé à notre hôte, la personne qui nous a "accueillis" avec deux heures de retard le jour de notre arrivée. Visiblement nous n'étions pas "attendus" puisque nous avons trouvé l'appartement "occupé" ou tout comme ... Nous avons dû enlever les draps sales pour faire le lit, débarrasser la poubelle pleine dans la salle de bain ainsi que le linge de toilette qui avait servi aux précédents occupants, tout stocker dans un coin de l'appartement durant tout notre séjour, faire le ménage. Pas de stock de papier toilette, fuite des WC, et frigo non nettoyé, rempli de denrées périssables ! Pas de manifestation de notre hôte malgré nos messages par mail et sur son téléphone portable (nous avons réussi à l'avoir une fois en direct, il était au courant de la situation dès le deuxième jour). Il avait également négligé la procédure de la résidence concernant les "permis de séjour". En effet, le règlement de la résidence est strict, plusieurs agents se relayent jour et nuit pour surveiller les entrées et sorties des occupants. Au-delà de quatre jours dans un appartement, une autorisation doit être signée pour prolonger votre séjour et vous permettre d'accéder à l'appartement. A souligner, les belles prestations annoncées (piscine, salle de sport) ne sont pas accessibles, il faut avoir sa carte de membre. Enfin, le deuxième couchage double est un matelas gonflable que vous ne pouvez installé qu'entre la télévision et le canapé du salon. Si nous faisons abstraction de l'"accueil" qui nous laisse un goût amer, nous gardons un très bon souvenir de notre séjour new-yorkais.
While the apartment was nice, the host was very difficult to deal with. I booked the apartment because he said I could check in at 8:30am as I am pregnant and had a 25 hour flight. He then wouldn't accommodate this the day before check in but finally did. I arrived at 9:10am due to a traffic accident and his girlfriend rudely let me in and did not explain anything to me except the sheets were in the dryer. She did not have the wifi password and rudely left. Not only were the sheets in the dryer but also other washing that I was left to put away.
I then contacted the owner several times a day for the next 4 days to get access to the wifi as advertised. He kept telling me he would get the password later today. In the meantime I was going to cafes as I had to work and needed internet, sometimes at inconvenient hours due to the time difference. He knew this and kept promising wifi access later today. He was unresponsive to my emails and calls and his girlfriend told me to speak to him about this even though she lived there and let me in. On the 4th day he answered when I called from another number. I told him I worked out the access but his account has been suspended and could he please reactivate. He said he was very busy and would get back to me in 30 minutes. I told him to stop promising me access if he couldn't provide it as I was tired to going to cafes at random hours to get internet, especially as the area between Penn Station and Port Authority bus terminal can be sketchy and tiring when pregnant. He told me he could credit me if I organised my own internet. Needless to say I never heard back from him after further attempts to contact him including 2 requests for a partial refund for the wifi I had to purchase.
Additionally the apartment is advertised as having a pool and gym. Please note that the owner does not pay the additional membership for these services so you cannot use them.
The apartment was also not very clean. They had just done a very basic once over rather than a full clean as per the cleaning fee. There was expired and rotting food in the fridge which no one wants to deal with let alone a pregnant woman.
While the apartment was new and modern and had a washer and dryer, there are much better apartments in New York with easier to deal with owners who actually respond to guests in better neighbourhoods. I would not recommend staying here, especially at the price.
For anyone looking for a well situated small apartment with a toilet that won’t flush, keys that don’t open the door unless you spend ten minutes wiggling them, don’t mind if there is no one to let them in on arrival and are not worried about left over food lying about or sheets that have obviously been slept under since changing, this place is ideal.
Terrific location!!! Couldn't of asked for a better spot. There were 3 of us staying there with only 1 double bed and one two seater couch. It clearly said 3 can sleep there but it was impossible. When I phoned him he said to go and buy a blow up bed for 60 bucks and he will fix us up. We borrowed one off the neighbours so it all worked out fine... If there are two of you it is a great apartment. 3 worked in the end but I must admit he did not go to any effort at all in accommodating for us. Wifi was okay - worked about 50 percent of the time. Toilet didn't flush for the whole week so we had to poor buckets of water down every time we used it. He did say he'd call strata to get it fixed but nothing ever eventuated. I know this is a fairly negative review, but we really did have a good week in the apartment, and all problems could be fixed in no time.
El departamento supero nuestras expectativas, muy buen barrio, excelente edificio, con seguridad permanente. El departamento impecable y con J.A. Nos mantuvimos en permanente contacto acordando perfectamente horarios de entrada y salida o cualquier otro tema.
Agradezco la confianza depositada en nosotros, fue una excelente experiencia y espero poder repetirla.
Voy a recomendar J. A. Como anfitrion y a su depto, sin dudas!!!!!
When we got there, the apartment was filthy (garbage lying around, layer of dust on furniture, dirty floor, unwashed sheets, dozens of roaches crawling on the kitchen counter) and there was a gas leak, which made it impossible to cook. Did I mention the roaches? Every single night they showed up to say hello. The sheets and mattress and furniture are very low quality. The hair dryer doesn't work. Dirty towels hang over the windows to replace curtains. Also, despite having informed the owner of our arrival time, there was no one around and, by the time we got through to someone, 3 hours had passed waiting outside. The great location and awesome electric kettle are not worth the money.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
