Mi marido y yo estuvimos alojados dos semanas en lo de Leo las dos primeras semanas de febrero 2015.
En general, el departamento nos gusto mucho; era calido (tuvimos temperaturas muy bajas y mucha nieve), tenia todo lo necesario para cocinarse y no gastar si uno no quería en salir a comer. El espacio era perfecto para dos personas, creo que cuatro estarían muy apretados. El agua caliente perfecto, la TV y el cable así como el wifi funcionaban a la perfección. El barrio esta resurgiendo y esta muy cerca de Times Square y de Port Authority para tomar el metro. En midtown así que se puede caminar hacia uptown y downtown tranquilamente.
Hay locales de venta de comida a la vuelta.
Como aspectos a mejorar tuvimos dificultad para encontrar el depto cuando llegamos ya que no teníamos teléfono local y es casi imposible conseguir teléfono publico. La dirección publicada y la que se nos envió era incorrecta; era la casa vecina. El horno no funcionaba pero se encargaron de traer otra cocina a la semana así que en ese aspecto buena respuesta. Nissim fue la persona con la que nos relacionamos que se encargo de atender todas nuestras dudas.
En resumen, recomendariamos francamente este depto.
Muchas gracias por la atención.
Leo was very helpful when it comes to everything. The apartment was also pretty efficient to two visiting on vacation. The location was also wonderful.
The apartment overall was a good fit for my boyfriend and I. We stayed there for 2 1/2 months during the early fall. The location was within walking distance to many attractions and restaurants. I felt very safe in the building and neighborhood. It's only a few blocks from the subway, and a laundromat was at the corner of the block which was very convenient. The apartment itself looks just like the pictures. It's small but it had everything one would need to live in NY. There was quite a bit of storage space and several windows. Some of the negatives about the place include construction noise 2 lots down from the building, but that's quite the norm in New York. There weren't many dishes or pots and pans, so you might want to bring some unless you eat out regularly. When the pipes are on to heat the apartment, they are VERY noisy. We opted to keep them off and bought our own space heater. The tv and cable are great, but the wifi was very unreliable and probably worked only 10% of the time. Overall, the place is cozy and safe and it encourages you to go see New York.
My mother (62) and I (28) stayed here for 22 days. The location is perfect!! 3 blocks from time square. Subway within 2 blocks. There is a bus yard directly next to the apartment but honestly I never noticed them until I was outside the apartment. Was easy to get a cab from this location when we needed to as well. I had direct contact with Leo which was the host on airbnb but I never actually met him. Nissam who I'm assuming is the building manager was the one who met us at the property. In contact with Leo I had requested to make sure their was a coffee pot and hair dryer in the apartment as well my mother is a avid coffee drinker throughout the day and every girl needs a hairdryer! Leo had stated that their would be both in the apartment. Unfortunately when we got their we realized there wasn't a coffee pot of hair dryer. I called nissam who was still in the building visiting his son who lives in the apartment above. He came downstairs and I told him that Leo and I had previously discussed there would be a coffee pot and hairdryer. His response to me was we have never had a coffee pot here and if we wanted coffee we could go to Starbucks or go buy a cheap coffee pot from a store. After hearing that I called Leo directly and within the next 2 hours we had a brand new hair dryer and coffee pot sitting in the kitchen when we got back from dinner. Additionally the sheets that were on the bed smelled like woman's perfume/lotion and had long black hair in the sheets. I don't think they were washed before we got there. The next morning I stripped the bed and took them across the street to have them cleaned. The water pressure in the shower was ok. The shower never seemed to get real hot though. I couldn't find a water heater in the apartment so I talked to nissam about the water in the shower and he said it's how it always is. Which was no help to us. We just dealt with it. Their was long black hairs in the drain in the shower that we had to clean up before we took a shower. So overall I was incredibly happy with the location and pleased with any interactions I had with Leo. Just not happy with the way Nissam responded to our different issues.

I stayed here for a month and my overall experience was very good. Leo (the owner) was very polite and even met me late on my first night to give me the key as my flight arrived pretty late, without issue.
It had everything I needed and the location can't be beaten for access to everything. I would definitely stay here again.
Now the one caveat that has to be mentioned is the building work that is happening directly behind the property. So from about 7:30am in the morning, 6 days a week, you hear very loud drilling and banging. This looks like it will be going on for a while, although I was told that the major heavy work has been completed. There's a Comfort Inn and Holiday Inn directly across the road which would have the same issue. If your intent is to stay in bed any later than 7:30 this is not the place for you. If not, then this place comes recommended.
The apartment is very well located, since it's near of many important places.
Strategic place to move north as south. Near to 2 subway stations and many shops nearby.
The kitchen and bedroom are well equipped and very good quality. The bed is really confortable also.
Some have mentioned the noise coming from outside, but for us wasn't a problem. The building is also quite quiet, but you can hear everything from other apartments. But again, we didn't have a problem with noise.
The bathroom is big, well equipped and with a nice and hot shower.
We contacted Lior at the begining, but then the contact was changed to Leo (minimun concact from both of them). We were received by the building manager who explanined the basics of the place to us.
The only thing to point out is that since we stayed during spring, we had some cold days and the heat was not working. We would have wanted some heating to receive us after a long day out.
We recommend it and would go back.
El departamento está muy bien ubicado, porque está en una zona a mano de todo. En Hells Kitchen casi el Garmen District, en definitiva en el Midtown, lo que lo convierte en un lugar estratégico ideal para moverse tanto para el norte como para el sur. Se encuentra entre medio de dos estaciones de subtes (la 42 y la 34). Y hay muchos comercios cercanos.
Está muy bien puesto con todo lo que se necesita, tanto los utensillos de cocina, como los de la cama. Muy buena por cierto, con muy buena calidad, lo que permite descansar muy bien. Algunos pasajeros anteriores mencionaron en sus críticas los ruidos, para nosotros no fue un problema, los ruidos de la calle no eran graves, al contrario no escuchamos nada. Y en cuanto a los vecinos, fueron tranquilos pero es un edificio que en general se escucha todo. Pero reitero, los ruidos no fueron un problema. Pudimos estar y dormir muy bien.
El baño es amplio, completo y con una ducha enorme con buena presión de agua y temperatura.
Nosotros contactamos primero con Lior, luego cambiaron de dueño y seguimos en contacto con Leo (con ambos muy poco contacto). Al llegar nos esperó Nissin, el encargado que nos brindó las llaves y nos explicó las cosas básicas de la casa, todo fue perfecto. Tanto la llegada como la salida.
La única observación es que si bien era primavera, tuvimos algo de frío, suponemos que la caldera central funciona con fríos más intensos, pero nosotros hubiéramos querido un poco de calor.
Muy recomendable, volveríamos.
Good Location, could not be more central, with Times Sq a 5 min walk away and Port Auth practically next door.
Apartment was well equiped and had everthying that i needed for my (website hidden), Internet where all available. The place was clean and the care-taker (Nissim) was very helpful to my requests. Hells Kitchen (bars, restaurants, shops etc) is on the doorstep and all the major subway lines are minutes away.
NOISY, the apartment is ground floor with the bedroom on the street so it is very noisy most of the time (day & night) as there is a night club accross the street. The TV cable was intermittent and I had to call Nissim a few times to get it fixed when I was out. The apartment does not have heating as such but electrical heaters were provided. Some electrical sockets were looses/faulty so had to be avoided. No door between bedroom and living room so if more than 1 couple are staying then there is no privacy. No hanging space apart from utility cupboard with cleaning supplies in it.
If the price is right then this place is fine for a single or 1 couple. If you are wanting the proper NYC hussle and bussle experience of Manhattan then you can get it here. It is 24/7 but the apartment is private enough to relax. Main drawback is the night noise from people and traffic passing by the bedroom window.
Would recommend it for a short stay but nothing extended, I stayed for 4 weeks and was ready to leave for somewhere quieter.
The location is the main attraction
